    Yeah, I don't understand the statements I've seen regularly around the net where people suggest PS3 was lead platform. As others have correctly stated, it's purely been shown predominantly on PS3 based on the deal Sony did with Rockstar for a dedicated PS3 bundle + associated advertising.

    Anyway, I was going to get 360 version as a swansong for that console, but have recently switched to PS3 version now in the sliver of a chance that any potential next-gen version might allow save data to be transferred over (I'm getting a PS4). It'd be even sweeter if they did that 'upgrade to next-gen version for 10' offer too, though I'd imagine that may just be limited to the upcoming launch titles like CoD, Fifa etc...

    I was concerned about the DS3 controller too as I generally prefer the Xbox pad, but thankfully the PS+ sub gives access to 1-hour full game trials of lots of games which included GTA 4. Downloaded that last week and tried it out and was pleasantly surprised that it felt fine with the DS3 (though with additional ORB 'triggers') so I'm more comfortable now.

    I've had a PS3 preorder for ages, was tempted to cancel it and get a 360 copy to 'say goodbye' to it in style but then just remembered that in terms of upcoming major games South Park: The Stick of Truth is still to come out so I'll get that on 360.

    Is this the current consensus?

    It's certainly the way the wind is blowing for people I game with.

    Don't know if it's been posted here but there's a thread on GAF detailing how online stores are under strict instructions from Rockstar not to dispatch any orders until the 16th so very much doubt anyone will be getting it early. In fact, knowing Royal Mail, you're more likely to get it a day late.

    It could be GAME just being dicks or quite possibly true.

    I've got mine pre-ordered at Tesco, who were a day late with SR4 and apologised by giving a fiver back, hopefully this time around they won't bugger it up as they're usually very good for release day arrival.

    For those worried about delivery, it might be worth ordering with Amazon.

    Yes, I know, they're usually bad at prompt delivery but if you take out a one month trial of Prime, they guarantee that Prime customers will receive all games on the day of release.

    They kept their word for me with Saints Row 4, and I got it for the bargain price of 30. Amazon's current price on GTA V is 35.

    I hope the shipment story is true. Nothing more annoying than a load of ponces getting the game a couple of days early and rubbing other people's faces in it.

    I'm tempted to go download, as my postman usually doesn't deliver until 12 noon to 1 pm.

    I predict Edge will give this is a 10 with GamesTM a 9. And both scores will look too high retrospectively.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Just like Edge gave Red Dead Redemption an 8 and retrospectively they've just given it a 10 in their '10 amendments feature', which I couldn't agree with more.

    In Shopto we trust. Even if they dispatch the day before they're pretty good with delivery times so you'd still get it for release day (hopefully).

    Pity I won't be going online with this (360, no gold) but the game itself should stay fun well into next year. (And beyond!)

    I would like to see similar article but down grading games they now feel they over-rated. I don't think Skyward Sword is a 10, it is a 9 tops, as an example.

    When the day comes that were loading into GTAv, whats the first thing you all plan on doing.

    Personally, i'll be heading straight up that mountain on a sanchez then off the cliff (just like the gameplay video)

    After that im off to find that jet:)

    Ok it is probably time I get that gold out from under the bed and put the pre-order in.

    First thing is motorcross or mountain bike the mountain trails if i can.
    And go hunt some animals to the sound of the RDR soundtrack...Oh wait.

    I don't plan on getting it at all until I read a good deal of user feedback.

    I thought GTAIV was a bit shit and it's selling for 65 euros here in Ireland so I'm wary.

    Yup, so did Eurogamer which shocked me. It's easily a ten for me and one of the best games I've ever played.

    They're too generous with other games. 10/10 for Farcry 3 and Rayman Legends immediately spring to mind. They're both 8s for me.

    I fancy getting a slow plane and taking a little look around the place and taking it all in.

    Is the whole map open this time or will you have to open it bit by bit as with past GTA games..?

    I might buy this. Then fuck the whole lot in the bin due to frustrating combat mechanics, frustrating missions and shitty checkpointing, the way I usually do with GTA games.

    I have no idea - probably something boring like trying to orient myself in the area around the first safehouse.

    I still get the position of the Algonquin safehouse in GTA IV wrong. For some bizarre reason I keep thinking it faces the river instead of the park.

    @Progguitarist

    65 sheets? Guess that's Gamestop then.

    I have a preorder with them, but I'm tempted to just walk into my local Tesco when it opens and grab one, as the usually sell something like this as a loss leader.

    Can't actually contain my excitement now. Can't remember the last game that done this (may have been red dead), but there's nothing like stepping in to a new GTA world for the first time, being in awe and running at the first person you see and punching em.

    Aye. After suffering from hype fatigue and generally being a bit unenthused as the reality of the launch is coming closer I'm getting a little of those excited jitters.

    I forget where places are all the time in GTA IV, i imagine 5 will be a struggle as well in that regard.

    @S.J.Rogers

    Yes a slow flyaround is a must for everyone.

    Email received, pre-order cancelled.

    GAME always take 2 days to send me stuff, not posting till Monday is ludicrous.
