i orderd mine on March 11th and my delivery estimate is May 8th.........Amazon are having a laugh as i know people who have orderd after the 9th of April with delivery estimates at 29th of April! i have emailed Amazon several times with the same response "orders are shipped on a first come first serve basis".
I posted this in another thread... but I thought I would post it here as well, just in case anyone misses it:
I imagine by now, Amazon are giving everyone the same May delivery date in order to cover any future complaints. If you did order well ahead of the April 8th cut off, then I would imagine you are one of the people who fall into the 'first come first serve' bracket, but your just getting an estimated delivery date ahead of April 29th so that there is no excuse for late deliveries.
People need to remember that these pre-order shortages are just that... *pre-order shortages*.. there is nothing stopping you from going down to your local games retailer and buying a physical copy of the game on the 29th as by law, all retailers must be able to supply at least a small number of copies of a product to customers who have not pre-ordered. But you will probably need to be getting up very early to catch GTA 4 in this case...
I ordered the game about 4 or so weeks ago. The price was £35, and now it is £40. Another benefit of pre-ordering quite a bit in adbance, I suppose. As for delivery estimates, they are notoriously unreliable when ordering more than a couple of weeks in advance.
Change your delivery method to "First class" instead of "free delivery" your delivery will change to 29-30 april. I was pissed when that happened on mine but now it's sorted - unfortunately this costs nearly an extra £2 but it's still cheaper than in shops (depending on when you ordered).
