Game Midnight Opening - GTA IV No Pre-Order?

Ok.... So I foolishly didnt pre-order GTA IV

I have a £39.99 Game gift card which I want to use for GTA as I am never going to find anything better to spend it on (Game is too expensive otherwise), so am wondering if anyone knows if I pop along to a store at midnight whether I will be able to pick a copy up?

There's two stores in the town center opening at midnight and I'd be up anyway, so isnt to much of a effort. Have Thurs/Fri off work so want it for then, but only really want to get it from Game

But halo 3 didn't sell out...
This has.

they're doin it for hype. just like nintendo. there is no was rockstar would lose out on the biggest game of the year by going short on launch day. they will have them there!

lol yh they will have them but it depends on the store's manager. BTW ive never turned up to a midnight game launch, do many people turn up?

There is no way ?

my friend works for game and he said their store has put through a **** load of fake pre-orders in order to guarentee stock from head office

Banned

When I rang up Game & Gamestation the other week the guy said to me they didn't think they had enough stock to cover pre-orders....

Hence ordered it elsewhere

I haven't seen so much sadness since the release of the dreamcast.

It's only a game, what's the fuss :?

It WILL be in stock like ace said.

Banned

it will be in stock, if they are open at midnight they will have stock for pre-orders and stock for people without pre orders, no store wants to look bad

Jeremy Vine is a Radio Presenter on Radio 2, and has a week day radio show between (I think) about 11am and 3pm. Anywho he has a phone section for a topic of the day and mostly Victor Meldrew types phone in being angry and Jeremy gets angry with them, tis funneh.

Just looks like more of the same to me, like Halo 3. Was watching the live feed from that american guy and tbh it looked pretty boring for the most part. Mind you, he does appear to be **** at playing games, even worse than me (and that's saying something!).

I think in such an open place like GTA more of the same is awsome. I could play Gta 3 etc for hours and hours and this version provides a more immersive world (apparently) and awsome graphics. After tuesday i will see you all in a month. :-D

You say more of the same like its abad thing, GTA3 was amazing when it came out on the PS2 this is like the same but next gen better graphics, physics, cover system, more in depth game engine in general

I noticed that people broadcasting their games were quite lame yeah
