So far no one has the game today and a couple places arent even sure if they'll have it tomorrow, which blows my mind and makes me a SAD panda.

hey neil, doesn't it make you mad that some gamestores in the UK and all over Europe have already got this game in their stockroom, but arn't allowed to put it on sale til 29th :D

some stores have had it longer than American Stores, and if you know the right places in the UK (example, in my hometown, a shop called 101 Games) you could probably get it as early as Wednesday, maybe tuesday but doubtful.

Luckly for me, i am a big fan of Pro Evolution Soccer, so the new one holds me over :D

Hey GTA Outlaw, I think thats because you usually have more than one save on your memory card. I hope this time you can delete individual save games, I could never do that on previous games. Bah! lol.

I was just wondering, since I live in North America, would Wal-Mart or Zellers (because the lowest price is the law -_-) be getting it tonight?

Yay! My order from gamestop.com has shipped! I'll be playing it tomorrow, definately!

Yeah, there does seem to be something magical about these past few months. We've all come together to express our joy and love for this series, and our anticipation for this game, it's a beautiful thing.

I'll probably stop hanging around here for a while after I get San Andreas and start playing, so I just wanted to say, "It's been great, guys. Rockstar is ready to deliver a great game to us, the eager and waiting fans, and I'm sure it won't dissapoint.".

Good luck everybody!
