Still weeks away from Grand Theft Auto IV's release date of April 29, cold weather hasn't prevented those eager to be the very first to play Rockstar's highly anticipated title from setting camp.
I pre-ordered mine about 6 months ago, just to make sure I get it.
You will be mine GTAIV!
lol wtf. halo 3 all over again
If this is true, those guys are sad bastards.
the guy who disagreed with you is also sad
Pre-orders are for suckers! :P
Anyways, these guys are probably waiting for the PS3 bundle with GTAIV. I sure as hell wouldn't camp out just for a game (or a system), but to each their own.
I find it hard to make a midnite launch talk less of f'in camping out. So essentially that is no life for the next 2 weeks
GTA4 and MGS4 are the first games i've ever preordered. i did it for MGS4 mainly for the beta. i don't think it will be too hard to find. GTA4 on the other hand............
How do we all know that the picture is not just some hobo in a tent on a street? Hobos dont play videogames right?
If people are already camping out for this game they should just kill themselves. I would normally say get a life but this is pathetic. I want it to come out as much as anyone (I'm actually taking that day off from work and am dedicating the day to playing it) but there is no chance I am camping out for this game or any game for that matter.
i mean i want this game alot and i am planning to buy it on day one but i im not bloody camping outside the shop for it. Its still a few weeks anyway
kosha...I wasn't talking about killing anyone, I was saying they should kill themselves.
lol sorry i thought you were going to go out and murder them. i suppose they should kill themselves then
i'm definately taking the day off from work to play it. but camping out?......thats a big NO!
You know youre missing something in life when you have to excite yourself by sleeping outside for something that you can get EASILY the day of launch...why do I say easy? It helps to know a manager at ebgames and bestbuy ;)
no camping for me...i pre ordered mine and paid it off in full with traded in games and an Edge card(no real money out of my pocket). But if they have a midnight launch, I will be there, because I know my game will be there and since it releases on a Tuesday, I don't have a class til 1pm...so i guess i'll be there.
but for a game... come on' It's just a game people, ok probably the biggest game of the year, but a game none the less... LoL
the best game ever though...
just go to gamestop you dont even have to ask them,they'll ask you!
Why would anyone camp out for a "game"?
This coming from a guy that camped out for the last several gaming "consoles" launched over the last several years. But a game?
area 51 is two words (i think)
I think that the 3 letter words was "GET A LIFE" part. Area 51 is the nick of the guy we are replying.
oh bollocks ur right
"2 words 4 ya
just go to gamestop you dont even have to ask them,they'll ask you! "
Except "pre-order" is one word genius.
I can't believe there's people who still camp out for anything. Pre-order, in store or online. I'm yet to camp out for anything and have had a PS2, Wii, PSP and PS3 on launch day.
I pre ordered a Wii, PS3 and 360 and only one of them came through. The other 2 the companies (developer and retailers) had last minute shortages and cut their shipments in half. I went through that with the last generation of console as well so I camped out for all new systems just incase. If not for camping out I would not have received 2 of them on launch day.
I guess it all depends on what company you pre order with. At least I know now what companies not to trust in the future.
That's unlucky, I only ever pre-order with Game or Amazon (or both in the case of MGS4).
Hey some people do not work, I remember those days...grr Anyhow this is a big game, it might be the biggest seller this year besides Geow2.
You think Gears will outsell GTA? Honestly?
but gears is not multi but will hold its own I guess.
What? your a little indecisive aren't you? I guess it stands a chance if your talking 360 only, but like you said its multiplatform.
i am an xbox fan and a gears fan, but even i have to disagree with you.
what makes you think Gears will sell more ?
How is it going to sell more...lets be real, it has a big fan base, but not half as big as GTA.
consider you have both fans on the xbox and the ps3, i just don't see how it is possible.
Lets not forget WoW Wrath Of The Lich King.
The profile shots in mk2 are the best of all! nice avatar!!!
Btw. 2 weeks?..............What are they trying to prove.
Seriously... I think people need to relax just alittle bit. Although they are proably just tryign to make a quick buck off jacked up Bundle prices on Ebay. If they really are there JUST for the game, then its absolutely ridiculous and i think there parents need to lay down the law.
just preorder it you morons. Its not a freaking system, its a damn game.
They sure are lame. Is Sweden only getting ten copies of GTAIV? If not then I think they can find something better to do with their time. Like get lives.
Idiotic. Game here in the UK will open at midnight, I'll walk in, hand over my pre-order slip and walk out. Easy.
I won't even do that. I will stop in at one of the dozen stores along my route home that will carry the game, walk in and buy the game. I have yet to be disappointed with this incredible strategy and pre-ordering is a waste of time.
I can't believe we didn't think of it sooner :P
because i have. well id love to take a day off college for this but i wont.. so i wont get home till about 4pm! at which time life will be dedicated to gta
the game comes out here in the vacation o yeah
I know why they started camping so early, the first 10 in the que will get the chance to buy PS3 and GTA4 for only 0,17 USD, same with 360, and 11-60 till get GTA4 for 0,17 USD.
are you talking about? i never knew about this
It's a local offer. The first ten ppl in line are guaranteed Console + game for 0,17 USD.
What stupid logic...
2 weeks of no work = spending 17 cents and getting a ps3 and game
working two weeks = 10 days x 8hrs x $10/hr = gross $800
price of ps3 and game = $450
800-450 = net of $350 before taxes. Now can those camping 1diooots see why working is more beneficial than camping just to buy a console for 17 cents? When in fact they are really spending $800.17 due to loss of work...some people
Haven't they ever heard of Walmart or Kmart or BestBuy. BestBuy might be sold out but they should have plenty at Walmart. There's really no need to camp out for games like this because there will be a lot of copies produced. Game specific stores are the only ones that usually out. At least on the first day anyway.
i never saw this, now i saw that people camped out for the 360, ps3, or even the iPhone..but GTA4? now ask anybody i have homemade countdowns, backgrounds on every device (ps3, pc, zune, phone), posters, even the niko cutout, but i will not camp out, instead just stay up late and around 11:50pm drive to gamestop, then pick up my game, get back at 12:01am, play the game, and be one of the first to GTA4, i probably wont play online util a week later, i want to get a feel of the city before i go online..its like playing madden against the number one player int he nation, and you are just getting into football...so yeah...anywho RESERVE A COPY!!! its only $5, and you are GURANTEED a copy...trust me it works
these people are not camping out just to be first to get the game...they are doing it to get attention and get on the news because they have no life, friends, people who care for them. And guess what? It worked!! Here they are!
be more right sir, but seriously just buy the game at 10am when a store opens, its not even a holiday and we are camping out..anywho...i dont understand why people wont reserve a copy
Well, if you're Swedish as i am you can read about the event here; And that i said is true. http://www.webhallen.com/li...
Good for them. As for me, I will go to one of the 8 Gamestops in a less than 10 mile radius of me and pick it up whenever the hell I feel like it on launch day, without a preorder.
F that noise. I'm no pleeb.... pre-order + shipping is the way to go. I don't have time to camp out with jobless geeks
That's not as bad as camping for a movie launch, but it's bad enough. Maybe it's tolerable for consoles (but you'll still get your console eventually, idiot). Seriously, GTA4 will be produced in the zillions. If it happens to not arrive at one store, it will be at another. If you happen to be in the unlikely situation of not finding it on day one, you'll get it the next day, or at the very least, two weeks from then. Rockstar/Take-2/EA knows it'll be in high demand.
what does EA have to do with the launch of GTAIV? Did they purchase T2? As far as I rememember T2 never sold so EA still has no say on what happens to them or anything related to them.
I would think people have a life or something. Dont these kids have school to go to? Doesnt that biotch have tables to serve or something. Its april 11th. GTA4 isnt out until april 29th. WTF thats 3 weeks away. These people are sad no lifes.
thats so lame camping out for agame it means your very sad and you have nothing else to do with you life lol just pre order the damn game like every one else lol gonna preoder mine from Game.Net so i get it in the post on day one.
My freind works in a game store and has told me that some who have evan pre-orderd will be dissapointed as their is a limited amount the game is being shiped with a package deal in with 40gig ps3s then the ps3 version stand alone copys to all stores and of course the 360 version aswell he told me that it might be a few weeks delay after lunch date before they get a restock of gta so good luck everyone and hope you get your copy.
Im gonna go into a store on May 1st and pick up a copy of GTA4 if I want to. I call BS on the limited supply of GTA4.
here in orlando the day of launch in the first store I go to.
pre-ordered from GAME, and will probably get it a day early like every other pre-order i've had from them
Im camping out side of gamestop right now for mgs4....
lol starting to camp on the 20th is ok, but the 11th??
but it seems quite obvious they are hoping to get free stuff. but they need to get a life.
Camping out for a game like this is crazy. Why is this game so popular? It's the same thing over and over, rob someone, beat someone up, car jack a car, shoot someone, outrun the police. How does anyone actually enjoy this game.
You are joking right? I would be interested to know what games you like to play.
so is every other game you play if you want to look at it that way.
at least with gta you have a few options.
shooting games for example; move from point A to point B, shoot everything that moves along the way. Point B, insert lame story. Point B to C, shoot everything that moves.
Racing games; Drive from start to finish. win medal, unlock new car.
Drive from start to finish again, win medal and unlock new car..etc, etc.
Point A to point B, insert lame story. Point B to point C, insert story. Now it gets interesting, point C back to point A and insert story. Point A to point C, secret door to point D.
trust me, there are much, much, much worse games to wonder why people like.
I bet by the time this game is released everyone of the sad gits will have a full Brian Blessed and will stink so bad, i'm Kind of hoping its delayed another week just to annoy them
i dunno what else 2 say lol
Why would you do this? This is what preordering is for. I'm planning on sleeping in on release day, turning on the news to see how badly the mainstream media is bashing GTA, then heading on over to my ebgames. no tent required.
