Early Release or Midnight Launch?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about an early launch or release of GTA IV because on thegtaplace.com and gta4.net both have their counters counting down untill 8pm April 28th a day before its schedualed release. If anyone knows if stores are having an early release or a midnight launch any info would be greatlly helpful.

Thanks Alot

Nothing is confirmed but usually retailers will sell the game at midnight on its release day, although hopefully, like they did with San Andreas, will do so 1 day before.

All youtube videos of GTAIV gameplay are fake and all videos showing the case are from someone who either printed out the artwork and slid it into another case or stole a display case from a store.

Not sure if there will be a midnight release in the UK like. Im not really that fussed since Im getting the game about 2 months after release date.

Midnight release has never really appealed to me but I think if they do it in the UK it will only be one game shop like GAME or HMV or VIRGIN MEGASTORE that do it.

Maybe I should pitch a tent outside one of the shops on the night before the release....

On a serious note, I think it would be best to ring around a few shops and see if they're selling it a day earlier. On the day before the release of VC back in 2002, I called Currys to see if they were going to have the game in stock the next day - they told me that they had it and were selling it that day....I then got into my land speed record car to get down there!

I dont know if it'll have that big of a line. Good thing I live where I do, I live in Arkansas. 75% of peope who play games did'nt even know there was gonna be a GTA IV. Where I live GTA is'nt really popular, believe it or not. Down here 90% of the people who play it are fuckin stupid inbread morons, who only play GTA so they can run around shooting people and stealing cars for hours and hours on end. The kind who will at a moments notice will just leave the room, leaving the game still playing for hours, causing the system to go into sleep mode. I'm one of the only ones who actually play the game, not just fuck around, just shootin shit. It's kind of a good thing. Means there wont be that many in line for it. Now I dont have to skip school and work to get the game, but I will be tired as fuck, cause I'mma play till 4 am.

I live in bromley and my local store is by the Glades shopping centre. I will wait outside the shop before it opens but I doubt I will have your kind of enthusiasm. I too have it preordered, but just in case, right?! If I can't get one there I'll have to sprint to the next shop. Luckily for me I have about seven other shops to choose from should I have no success in one of them.

I heard one of the guys at my local Gamestop say that there would be a midnight release. SOOOooooo.... you guys need to check your local gamestop too.

I preordered at GameStop, so thats where I'll be getting the game, but I won't be going out to get it at midnight (unless they have some crazy giveaway), since either 1) I wouldn't be able to wake up for work the next morning, or 2) I won't go to work the next day.

Maybe I need to work on a fake cough, lol.

DAMN SCHOOL AND WORK! I hate my fuckin job anyways. I'ma bout to put in my two weeks! I'll take abunch of laxetives the night before, so I dont gotta go to school. I'd rather have to shit and get to play GTA IV instead of go to school and not get to play till I get home eight hours into the day.
