If this is true, tesco have my money. They usually sell new releases at about £40 ish too!

There's a few places that say it's out on the 25th, bet there just trying to get more sales

Just got off the phone to tescos (store NOT website), here follows the convo:

"Hi, just a enquiry for the release date of Grand Theft Auto 4 on the PS3"

"It says here its the 24th, but I'll just check that" *taps away on keyboard* "Oh it seems to have been moved to the 29th, So we'll probably get them in on the 28th and we wont be able to sell them until the 29th"

"Ok, thanks very much *mutters profanity under my breath*"

So I guess it was a typo. Ahh well I'll guess I'll stick with my preorder for the midnight launch at blockbusters.

Saves me losing my depost too.

I hope GAME sends me my copy a day early like what they did with UT. But if this is true, it'll probably be too late for me to cancel my pre-order.

Every game i've pre-ordered with GAME.CO.UK has come the day before its release (i've pre-ordered about 10 games with them).

Ah, good old Tesco. The Wallmart of the UK.

Tesco is better than walmart by a long shot. (i've lived in US and UK I should know!)

OgTheClever3407d ago

Asda is technically the Walmart of the UK because they are the same company. (I presume you probably meant their dominance over other supermarket chains though)

SafeRat3407d ago

Hopefully it's true, as I already have my preorder with them :)

Ali_The_Brit3407d ago

if this is true and if i have time im canceling my pre-order and getting it from tescos 4 days early!

What is the UK release date? Is it the same as the states? Seems wierd as we usually get our games on the Friday not the Tuesday. This would net you the game a week early.

For those that have a GAME Pre-order as long as the game isn't opened they will give you a refund so just take it back or from what I rememeber, GAME don't actually ask for a deposit do they so you could just get from Tescos and ignore GAME altogether.
