I pre-ordered this game today with first class delivery selected. I got an email saying the estimated dispatch date is 7th May, that's one week after the bloody game has been released, are they serious?? Anyone else getting this?

thats probably because they are selling the second batch now... most other companies have run out too.... including play.com...

better off looking at the special edition if you really want it on the day...

I think Amazon will have a definite amount of units guaranteed. But i still think figures are sketchy when release of games come out hence the word " estimated". Iam sure they will end up with plenty of supply regardless and iam sure rockstar will be anticipating huge demand and will aim to meet that demand!

I remember this happened with Perfect dark ages ago, but the retailers got more than enough stock to meet demand for the first week.

Also i think Xbox live is gonna crash due to this game...would be hilarious !

I see amazon, hmv and gameplay have ran out of pre-order stock. Think i might take the day of work and pick up a copy first thing in the morning from town.

I'm in Japan at the moment, and ordered the game from the U.S (Amazon UK doesn't send games to Asia). They say I will get the game between 1st and 5th of May, which is a little earlier. So you may want to try and order the game from amazon.com if all else fails.

hiya, i preordered mine off amazon when i had the email it was £35, and dispatch date states the 1st of May. We have waited this long a few more days wont make a difference!!!

matonking says:
mines is the 24th :) says its going to be dispatched on the 23rd, and arrive on the 24th . and amazon are normally that fast!! i hope i do but i doubt its true.. i pre-ordered mine around.. 9 months ago i'd say.. it was a couple months before the first release date was announced on the 28th of october or whatever it was.
so yeah i'll let you all know what the games like a day in advance ;)

I Preordered My Copy On April 2nd... My Estimated Dispatch Date Is The 28th With Delivery To Follow The Following Day; I Guess I Must Have Just Squeezed Into The First Batch; Does Anyone Know When The Second Batch Cut Off Date Actually Was? Amazon Says April 8th However I No Of People Who Have Said April 6th....

I've seen a guy who bought the PS3 Version on the 6th, but is getting a copy from the second batch too.
Amazon need to clarify the situation, on both consoles. The PS3 Order Information is either wrong, or some people's orders didn't work properly, and the 360 Messageboards have no idea what is happening, as peoples delivery estimates are wildly changing.

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Apr 2008 15:23:55 BDT
Well mine I ordered about 2 months ago and the estimate is 29th-30th April, the reason why yours may come in May is because all the sites are selling out and cant guarantee delivery on release date the news has been all over the gta iv websites and forums

Well I just ordered from Tescos - they claim they will dispatch on the 29th. They better not be lying, they just posted nearly £3bn profits!
