    OK, it was kinda exciting when Halo 3 broke street date. People were getting it, what, a week and a half early and I personally managed to grab one at Tesco's a week before release.

    I personally haven't preordered and will be checking threads like these as if I was mildly autistic over the net. Yup, I want to play it by ear and can wait for it, but if I can nab it early, then why the hell not?

    Last time the Halo thread came in handy for us overexcited gaming numpties, so what with this being multiplatform - stick yer info here.

    I will be should I discover anything.

    And yay for another GTAIV thread.

    ...

    Better than Halo?

    Im all for early date breaking obviously but what was wrong with the main GTA thread?

    Small consolation for having to work in Tesco.

    If i had a copy it would be on ebay straight away, i'm excited for it, but i'd rather have a free holiday.

    If I worked somewhere where I could get a copy of something I really wanted early I'd have it.

    Not GTA though.

    I'm not bothered if i'm the last person to get GTAIV =P I just like the idea of swimming in money after I sell GTAIV on Ebay...

    And while I'm at it, I can send in a bias review and get flamed =D

    Sad is grind levelling for months on World of Warcraft :D

    Don't forget using pointless cheats to destroy everything in GTA. I mean, I like to play through the missions and stuff...

    It's a shame that San Andreas didn't keep me gripped with the mission section like VC did.

    Is that some kind of blind guess? Or did you get that from the shopto forum?

    Personally, this is one time that I hope the place I ordered from (shopto) sticks to the launch date, or at least the Monday. I've booked the week beginning the 28th off work so I can play it stress-free, and it'd going to be horrible being at a shitty, shitty job with GTA sitting at home :(

    Just picked up my copy from an Indie in South London.

    It's pretty good so far.

    I rang them yesterday to make sure my copy wouldn't get sent to my work address, I want it sent to my home.

    An I asked if he knew why it was a Tuesday 29th release and he said it's probably marketing but they will get stock next weds and will ship it when they get it in so I/everyone else may well be playing it the weekend before.

    Nice.

    Oh and he also said I should keep it under my hat.

    I got six copies last week and I'm currently using them as a toast rack.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.
