Hi Jack

Thank you for your recent order of Grand Theft Auto IV. We're sure you're looking forward to this Tuesday as much as we are.

We've got some great news. To guarantee you receive your copy on time, we'll now be sending it by Royal Mail Special Delivery.

And don't worry, there's no additional charge for this. We just want to make sure you're amongst the first to get your hands on the hottest game of the year.

Please remember that your delivery will need to be signed for. If the postman can't get a signature, you'll always be able to collect it from your local sorting office.

If you have any questions, as always, feel free to contact us.

Many thanks!

So does this mean I will get my copy tomorrow? :w00t: Considering they sent me the e-mail, that says "we will be sending it via royal mail special delivery" I hope so :w00t:

did you get the game?



No... : ( but I did get another e-mail today, with a tracking number. I'll check it now, as it said come back later, I kinda checked it about 5 times today :whistling:

I'm hoping to get it for tomorrow I suppose.

Edit, this is the answer I get : (

Special Delivery™ 9am items are first tracked when they reached our mail centre. This may be late in the evening on the day the item was sent.

Information on your item is not yet available online.

So maybe Monday then, oh well I can wait.

are play sending them out recorded/special delivery?

If they're not you'll be lucky to get it for launch if it was posted today

IGN have posted their review and review of GTA4 and it states that the PS3 version is infact superior. It states:

PS3 version has better AA
Ps3 version has faster loading times (due to install on hhd)
ps3 version has alot less popups than 360
ps3 version has better frame rate and loads textures faster than 360 version.

But reviewer states these are minor things and gives the game a ...











10/10 - The first 10/10 given in the last 10 years by IGN unlike other sites that hand them out every 3 months. This proves that GTA 4 is probabaly the best game of this generation and the reviewer says it the best game hes ever played.
