As some of you know I got my PS3 yesterday so I can get GTAIV now, but I was thinking what is the point of pre ordering it now, but I must admit a lot of other poeople have pre ordered it, So have you pre ordered it? If you haven't tell me when you will.

Tell me when you will? You mean if you will.

I won't. In the first place I don't own a 360 or ps3. But even if I did, I wouldn't pre-order. I'll just go to my local store and ask if they could reserve a copy. Simple.

^ i think thats kinda what he means.

As for me, NO, because i dont own a 360 or a PS3, though a hell of a load of good games are coming out, and since i need all the cash i can get to buy a motorbike in the next couple of weeks, it looks increasingly unlikely...

Reserve a copy is still sort of pre- ordering you know but anyways that makes two people not Pre-ordered GTAIV yet.

Well, it's not really IMO. You just ask that guy if he can keep one. And he'll probably say: "yeah sure, just collect it before 4 PM or I'll give it to somebody else.". It's not the 'official' pre-ordering and you only ask that 2 days before the release.

Well the thing is, I don't have a PS3 system or an Xbox 360, but, I have already pre-ordered it a couple of days ago or something, and I pre-ordered the PS3-version, cuz the PS3 seems more interesting and I believe it's the right choice you know. Also, I know about the episodic content on the Xbox 360-version, but you never know... As far as I know, R* has never said that there will never be any exclusive episodic content on the PS3-version, they've just said that it's going to be on the Xbox 360-version... So, wouldn't surprise me if the PS3-owners get it later, like a couple of months or something.

Yes, I have pre-ordered it. I pre-ordered the day that the screenshots and the trailer released. Though I think there is no point to it. Except to help you manage your excitment and so the money you are collecting does'nt get spent on somethings else. It's still 6 months off and I'm ecstatic beond believe. You know if I were a game maker I would'nt anounce a game until one month before the release that way fan boys don't shit there pants waiting on the game.

I haven't preordered it When I got GTA VCS It had a load in stock at Wal-Mart and I got my copy about 5 days after release. So judging on how big my town is I won't have to worry that much. In fact by the time GTA IV is released I would probably have an option since there'll be a Target built by the time it's released too I think. I just gotta' get my money and wait.

That would be a pretty bad marketing plan. They announce them early so that fans would get excited about it so that by the time the game was released, they already knew they were going to buy it.

I would pre-order it but 1) it's more expensive for Australians to do so (shipping is likes 30 bucks on top) and 2) I don't yet have a console for it. Hoping for a PC release myself. Although like with SA, I won't be able to wait that long.

I can't, the stores don't allow it this early here. June I could but really can't be bothered. I'll pre-order it the day before, then I know i'll get it the next day and not be waiting for months to get it.

I might pre-order it. I don't want to wait in a line at the counter waiting to get home. Pre-Order is much better if your the Lazy type of person. :P

Ok how about 3 month before launch that's plenty of time for fans to hear all the info and get hyped up and pre-order it.

So true. Plus it's just cool to walk up next to the counter and just ask for your cop, that you already paid for, and just skip pass the whole line and get home fast to play the game you just got.

Seeing as I don't live in the UK or US, I'm going to ask my brother to get it for me who lives in the UK and send it here. I just wont come onto the forums for like 3 weeks so you guys don't spoil it for me :D

EDIT: Yes! I just found out IV comes out in the UK 3 days after the US release so I should be playing it a week after you guys.

Do UK games actually work on your 360/PS3, because UK uses something like PAL and America use something else but I forgot.
