I was just wondering: when will I get this? I preordered it but didn't choose release-day delivery, instead I picked super-savers delivery. since amazon says the release date is May 20th but Rockstar have announced it for the 17th, my question is: will I get it by Friday next week? Oh, also, I'm Spanish, I mean, I'm having it shipped over here in Spain. thanks for the replies everyone
Amazon ships the day before release day, if it takes more than 24hrs to get to you then no it won't. Super Saver may also make bigger delays, sometimes they will ship as normal and other times you will end up getting it later than if you paid for next day delivery. My advice to both of you seeing as you're not based in the UK would be to order from a shop in you're country, more chance of it arriving on time then.
@l.j tosina. totally agree with what you are saying. i live in spain also and the prices for new games are totally ridiculous. amazon need to sort their posting for preorders to other countries, i wanted this game for the weekend but now i wont have it till tuesday. same old story everytime with new games, cause they always get released on a thursday or friday. hope they change their system soon.
the thing though is that its so frustrating to know that they could have had the game in your letterbox by Friday morning since I'm sure they've had it in stock for weeks now. it's just laziness or so it seems
also, why are you guys saying they dont deliver on Mondays? Is it Royal Mail or what? It is MRW that handles Amazon orders to Spain and I'm pretty sure I've had something delivered on a Monday before. I dont think I'll make it till Tuesday. It's being pretty hard today already
yeah mrw handle all orders to spain. ive had things delivered on mondays before but mine say it wont be here till tuesday. saying that that tho mine always arrives a day before its estimated so i should get it on monday
the thing is that MRW's tracking system doesn't seem to be the most accurate ever. If they deliver it early Monday morning it'll mean it's been here all weekend and that'll piss me off. Usually I can only track packages within Spain, so as soon as they arrive in Madrid I can track them. well, it still won't let me but I'm pretty sure it's aready here. I can feel it. god darn it
yeah you can only track it once it has had the scan in coslada. what day did yours get dispatched? think mine was on thursday. the only problem here in spain is that noone works on sundays so everything gets delayed even more.
yeah. mine got dispatched on Thursday as well. I just went to my local MRW depot to see if it had gotten there but it hadn't. Oh well... at least when it arrives on Monday and I have to work I'll know I couldnt have played for the entire weekend anyway. we'll have to wait, I guess... it still was twenty-something bucks cheaper. I guess that makes the wait worth it
mine too (16:51:11) they pretty much shipped a plane full of la noires to spain. well monday it is then. why dont we spaniards work on sunday? oh, maybe because its the lords day and we are the quintessential catholic country. yeah, that must be it. damn
Mine is late, I'm so mad. I wrote to them about it, and they've said I basically have to wait until June 1st to see if it turns up, then complain again. I wrote them again because I think that's unacceptable, if you pre-order something specially (something I never do) you want it for that date! I wish I'd just bought it in a store now.
