You Aren't The Only One Taking A Day Off For Grand Theft Auto V

Here's a rather frank but hilarious notice spotted by lukedoof in front of a small British games shop called Console Yourself. Why bother opening the store when they know their customers and staff alike will be busy playing Grand Theft Auto V on launch day? (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I plan to buy GTA 5 when its on sale or used.
OhhWerd  +   319d ago
You'll break, you know you want it
Lukas_Japonicus  +   319d ago
What was the point in saying that?

Millions of people are going to be playing it at midnight next week, who cares if you are going to buy when "its on sale or used".

And if you wouldn't pay full price for GTA5, then i would love to see what games you WOULD pay full price for.

What if he's poor and lives in his mom's basement?
3-4-5  +   319d ago
I usually would, but I've been waiting 5 years for this game and I just don't have the self control to wait.

Most likely getting it at midnight release or early the next day......... as in the second Gamestop opens.
azshorty2003  +   319d ago
I've been very good about waiting till games go on sale to around $30-40, but there is NO way I'm not getting this on release day.
kingPoS  +   318d ago
If everyone had that same thought, how would more AAA games make it to production with decreasing budgets and deflating sales?

I don't get you, either you want the gaming market to to thrive or you want it to keel over. which is it???

Thank goodness different people have varying... opinions.

Well I won't be booking time of work for its launch but I'll take time off work for when GTA online kicks off!

The Singleplayer portion of GTA isn't that interesting to me. The only Singleplayer I enjoyed is GTA 1 and San Andreas but of course that's because there was no multiplayer option.

@ cyguration

Being poor is no excuse to not get GTA V, we are poor to...LOL, we pre-ordered it in Feb with Income tax money.
dougr  +   319d ago
I took Tuesday and Wed off for this game with my remaining vacation days.

It happens to be my B-day week and I have the whole week off HAAAH!

LMFAO
OhhWerd  +   319d ago
Still figuring out the excuse to use to not go into work that day
TheDarpaChief  +   318d ago
Got a doctors appointment. That's my excuse
kenshiro100  +   318d ago
You can always use the 'I got sick the day before and don't want to spread my germs' excuse. XD
MrDead  +   318d ago
Just tell them you're at home playing GTA they will understand, I'm sure new GTA comes under the compassionate leave policy at all places of work.
PCGamingNoobs  +   318d ago
yeah it does, i definitely read that somewhere!! its like a national holiday thing, its just given.
Hellsvacancy  +   318d ago
Tell them you twisted your neck whilst you was sleeping, your in agonising pain
Grave  +   319d ago

The Brits are on a whole diff level of talk, my uk friend said this is a common saying
orakle44  +   319d ago
may be a common saying, but it sure as sh*t is not grammatically correct. As with most of "british english" lol
redknight80  +   319d ago
Yup, makes sense mate...the originators of the language are the ones who are incorrect.
TrollCraftTales  +   319d ago
@rednight
They didn't make it, the Germans did, the British just found it and used it...
orakle44  +   319d ago
LOL, @redknight you stated in your post above that the germans invented english........smh
aLucidMind  +   319d ago
Our version of the english language is different from the British version. What is grammatically incorrect can be correct in their native dialect. Claiming your dialect is the right one makes you sound as intelligent and mature as the children bickering in console wars.
wsoutlaw87  +   318d ago
ya just because its a saying, doesn't mean its correct in their language. There are plenty of examples and who really cares.
redknight80  +   318d ago
@orakle44 and TrollCraft, I was just having a laugh..sorry if it came off as rude, I was just being a jerk to the OP since I found it laughably hilarious that he/she said all hopes are with the people of the USA to save the language. I just found it rather hilarious since American-English is maybe the 3rd or 4th variation of true English and yet it is an American saying that the grammar is incorrect.
paul-p1988  +   318d ago
It's an informal term used in English speech, absolutely nothing wrong with it.

And just how grammatically correct is "American English"... y'all... we invented the language, you butchered it...
krisdeaco  +   318d ago
When you learn to pronounce Aluminium and/or Route properly then I'll give you the right to criticise.

Got to save mine for November... :( Hurry up November.
vividi  +   319d ago
Well I will play my copie after work
Perjoss  +   319d ago
took 4 days off, gonna have me some fun.
Lockon  +   318d ago
I can't take that many days off for a regular release..But the PS4...I plan to take atleast 3-4 days off..
I'll wait until they release the superior PC version. GTA4 & it's DLC were both boring as hell on consoles. GTA4.5 looks to be the same thing and the only thing that will save that is mods.
TheCatsMeow  +   318d ago
No one likes you right now.
You must be the 0.0000000001% of the people who are looking at this game very incorrectly.

GTA5 will become my absolute favorite game at about 12:15am on the 17th of September, 2013.
Rockstar, put your disc in me already.
No homo ;3

hiredhelp  +   318d ago
Why we bitching about the British language that is now become very commn in many country's.?
Anyways isn't this topic about GTA.
ApolloTheBoss  +   318d ago
Lucky for me my day off is exactly on Sept. 17 by pure coincidence.

Swiggins  +   318d ago
Classes don't start for me untill September 26th, so I have a whole week to tear into GTAV.

Awwwwwww, Yeeeaaahhhhhh!
RE_L_MAYER  +   318d ago
going to get it straight after work Monday.....cant really take a day off but its ok
Hellsvacancy  +   318d ago
Hay, you haven't used your grammar correctly "ATTACK"
FunkMacNasty  +   318d ago
I'm glad I'm not the only one! I took a whole week off lol! And I've actually been saving my vacation time at work for this for a long time.

I also took week-long "staycations" in the past.. for Battlefield 3, GTAIV, and... I think that's it. but If a game comes out that I really want to sink my teeth into, that I'm really looking forward to, I always take at least a day off to play it. Otherwise, I'm too busy to really find the time to enjoy it.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   318d ago
Taking the day off? I'm taking the WEEK off.
Jeff257  +   318d ago
I wish I could take off on the 17th to play it. Unfortunately I have to work that night but I do have off from 7am on the 18th until the following Sunday. I will spend just enough time on the 17th after I pick up my copy to at least install it so it will be ready to go for me on the 18th.
shiver130  +   318d ago
Lol the day off? I booked from September 15th-28th off work Hahahaha
paul-p1988  +   318d ago
Love the sign :) If only i could get the day off :( but knowing the Royal Mail the game wouldn't be delivered until at least 3pm because they are all too bloody lazy to deliver the post in the morning like they used to...

Evening of GTA5 for me instead!
Mr_Danski  +   318d ago
I wont be buying GTA V Simply because i told myself 'NO MORE CURRENT GEN I NEED TO SAVE'

...Saving for PS4 games.

I hope it does come to PS4 however, because that sh*t, i will buy.
isa_scout  +   318d ago
Wish my willpower was as strong as yours'. I'm saving for my PS4 watchdogs bundle and Killzone Shadowfall, but I refuse to miss out on GTA V. It looks like it quite possibly could be the greatest game this entire generation. IGN said that GTA V is more next-gen than any next-gen game...lol Can't wait for midnight launch!!!
Mr_Danski  +   318d ago
Haha, thats why im really hoping to see it on PS4!

I'm getting FIFA and Watch dogs at launch and hopefully kill zone too, just cant afford to buy anything else ps3 related :(
Daz  +   318d ago
Got the whole week of lol

Book it of at the start of the year
teedogg80  +   318d ago
I tried to get the day off. But the guy I tried to get to cover for me claims he has a night class that night. Bastard! He's probably getting it too.
Kidmyst  +   318d ago
That'd suck for anyone who couldn't get their copy picked up Tuesday. Go to the store Wed and DOH!
