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?

I plan to buy GTA 5 when its on sale or used.

You'll break, you know you want it

GarrusVakarian967d 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?

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.

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.

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.

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

OhhWerd967d ago

Still figuring out the excuse to use to not go into work that day

TheDarpaChief967d ago

Got a doctors appointment. That's my excuse

kenshiro100967d ago

You can always use the 'I got sick the day before and don't want to spread my germs' excuse. XD

MrDead967d 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.

PCGamingNoobs967d ago

Hellsvacancy967d ago
