    Right folks, GTA 4 will be with us soon and by the sounds of it most stores have stopped taking pre-orders and I'd rather walk into a store and buy it on the day!

    So whats the best store to get it from when its out?

    Its gonna be massive, so hopefully all the stores will be fighting for our custom so anyone who works at Game, Gamestation, HMV, etc know of any deals that will be on when its actually out?

    Anything free? Cheaper than anywhere else? Exclusives?


    I figure somebody who works for these stores must know about a deal for it

    If it's PS3 your after it's been put on a few sites that 'it'll be harder to find it unpre-ordered on PS3 than a wii on first week of release'

    I don't know if it's bull or not so don't take it as fact.

    Theres no point in pre-ordering GTA4. In no way would GTA 4 be sold out, it would be the publishers worst nightmare if theres still people wanting the game but no stock of the game to sell.

    Pre-orders are made to scare the consumers into thinking its "limited" stock and by preordering your tied into that store for the purchase, garuanteeing that store money. Many of my friends pre-ordered Halo 3 yet a few of my friends could walk into any store they want and and buy the game without a pre-order at a cheaper price than my friends who preordered.

    when halo 3 came out i walked into Blockbusters to get my pre ordered copy, they had stacks of ones for general sale at the front of the store.
    My mate went in at lunch time and every single copy had gone:whistling:

    Ordered Spesh Edish from HMV, anyone else pre-ordered from there? If so, release date or couple of days after jobby?

    I went and picked up San Andreas on the day it came out and there were loads of copies available

    They didn't sell out at all near me.

    I agree with a previous comment that its the publishers worst nightmare if this sells out so I very much doubt they will not release enough copies as they will be losing out to people rushing through the game and selling second hand.

    The point of the thread though is does anyone know of any deals when its released not when its pre-order?
    Someone MUST know something surely!
