Take2 have sent a street date agreement to online retailers to sign which means they cannot ship GTA IV until Monday next week (April 28), this also includes an embargo on staff getting copies either paid for or free.
Dont belive this is ture as this may mean meny wont get there orders on time and i have already been told that shipping will take place this week but im now going to contact my source for confirmation.
I happen to know for a fact that most distributors will have the game on the 25th. They should be shipping them on Friday so we can have in stores on the 28th. We will be selling them at 11:59:59 the 28th, we are having a little event as we do for ecery big game.
i don't want anyone playing it before me
Online orders, what about B&M stores (IE : TESCO!) Either way, im still going in on the 25th, just incase.
you've got to be kidding me!
They might be concerned with someone's safety. If I see someone playing it early and I can't I might hunt them down.
no no no no no no no no no... that mean's i'm going to have to rely on royal mail actually delivering something at some point the next day...
we are screwed
Lucky you, I've got to rely on Airmail to get this thing shipped to Sweden because I don't wanna pay £50 for it. I predict I'll receive it on the 2nd May :/
this is what you call the shi$ hitting the fan... They aren't playing with this one.
I just called my store that usually sells me things early. He just said "the 29th" rather sternly. :(
I'm sure online retailers have a system in place for shipping all their products... and they won't deviate from that. This is probably just a reminder 2 not completely bugger up the release date. I reckon if you live far away, they'll send it out on the appropriate day so u have it on the 29th.
Too late Tescos is selling it on 25th, I rang up today again, and they rang head office who confirmed it owned. bout time we get something b4 pirates do
are you serious brothersimon?.... or are you talking out your arse cos if i go down to tescos and they dont sell it me im blaming you
ring ur local urself..
You got me bare happy and i thought you were being serious. I just phoned them....they said they aren't recieving them till the 25th and they aren't going on sale until the 29th. I then asked them about this street date agreement and it seems legit. she said some of the pre-orders won't even be shipped till the 29th to insure that no one gets it early .....SO THERE IS NO CHANCE OF GETTING IT EARLY FROM TESCO. The vouchers must have been mis-printed ~Escorcio~
OMGZ They said 4/29, but I want it early!!! I am calling my mommy!
Replied to wrong Person!!
what, you dont want to talk to me?
Nah man nothing like that, just the N4G reply/agree is annoying sometimes
Just got this email from game.co.uk Dear Customer Grand Theft Auto IV is nearly here! Thank you for your order ********** for Grand Theft Auto IV. The highly anticipated GTA IV is due to be with you on Tuesday 29th April. To make sure that we get this title to everyone who ordered it for release day we have had to start our picking and packing process earlier than we would for our normal pre-orders. As a result, we may look to authorise your credit/debit card from tomorrow. Kind regards Customer Services GAME.co.uk ---------- I bet any money it gets shipped Friday
I just had the same email.
My email was worded almost exactly the same but from Gameplay.co.uk
'My email was worded almost exactly the same but from Gameplay.co.uk' That might be because GAME own gameplay.co.uk
That's interesting, i knew they bought EB didn't hear about Gameplay tho
Yer, GAME group PLC own GAME, GAMESTATION and Gameplay.com But all the EB shops were rebranded as GAME. Really they hold a nationwide monloply (sp) in the UK for the high street, with the only other Specilist Retail outlets to provide competion are only found regionly (e.g. IT Games in South West)
i've gone with GAME too, i usually get games a day early from them but we'll see
With it being released on a Tuesday rather than the normal Friday, im not expecting it a day early, but we should get it on launch.
GTA4 will be shipping on that date,and will be enjoyed by millions of Playstation fans worldwide.
well i still be getting my copy on 25th from my local gamestore ^^
all i know is if GAME or royal mail dont get it to me on the 29th somebody is going to die, seriously if i get home from college and get told nothing came for me i will flipping cry im sure
bad bad bad
Still think i`ll be able to buy it friday by fooling some Gullible Store worker into selling it early... it has worked many times hehehe.
This is a joke because the guy in Blockbuster told me they were getting them this week, but they won't be able to sell me my copy until next week. I'm going to try and get me one at 11:59PM before the lock up. Hopefully some cool guy is working there because I pre-ordered mine and they should be happy that I did. I deserve a copy at midnight. The Genius has spoken.
the game will be leaked soon b4 it come out
