So who didn't get their copies delivered then?

I ordered from Amazon mid August and haven't received anything. Postwoman has been and gone.

If you're desperate to play something asap then don't, ironically, pre-order.

I'm still waiting, too. No idea if the postie has been, or if someone else will bring it. Who knows.

Bit annoying when i could just go out and buy it in a shop at this point.

Mine shows as being delivered this morning via royal mail.... But it seems to have sprung legs and gone walkies....

So I am going to wait and claim a refund tomorrow

Tesco and Gamestop both delivered this morning from regular post. (not rubbing it in) Just letting people know if they were expecting the same.

I ordered from shopto a month ago and it's not turned up, first and last time I ever preorder something. Tossers.
I ordered from shopto last week. (Not GTA). Had confirmation email, and money was taking from my bank account. But when I went to check my order I couldn't log into my account even after password reset. Game was due on Fri or Sat. Nothing by Monday had to ring them, despite the email and money from my account all of the above the order had not been dispatched. There a problem on their end. Order cancelled in the end. But an absolute mess. Can you log into your account?

I was out early this morning happened to go past a Game shop but the queue was pretty long so decided to leave it but they seemed to have the stock. Just goes to show when you pre order and the item doesnt turnn up what a joke, Wouldnt be surprised if this happens on Ps4 launch.

I wouldn't mind so much but Amazon shouldn't promise things they can't deliver on.

On days like this I can understand why people pre order off Xbox Live / PSN network (granted you cant get GTA V from Xbox Live at the moment)
On the PSN network you could pre order the GTA V download it on Sunday but not able to play it until midnight on day of release but on the upside the game is waiting for you and always there to re-download whenever you want.
The main downside to this is that you cant sell the game after your finished playing but you cant have everything.

A friend of mine ordered 3 months ago from play.com (spit) and got an email at 5pm last night to say they couldn't fulfil the order.

Luckily, he just strolled into Asda today and picked one up. (As have I)

Amazon did similar to me with Mists of Pandaria. They then had the audacity to lower the price by 5 after shipping it so they could get away with the pre-order price guarantee, I complained and got a refund of the 5.

I really struggle to sympathise with you too much though, as GTAV is quite simply a huge game. I couldn't have gotten Mists of Pandaria as cheap in stores as only rob dogs like GAME would have stocked it, so online was the only option (other than paying Blizzard's inflated digital download prices). GTA V on the other hand is everywhere. I got lunch at Tesco and they had loads of copies and I'm sure ASDA, Sainsburys, Morrisons etc. etc, are the same. If you were that urgent to play the game then you could have gotten it yourself with ease, and for a decent price.

not that bothered that mine didnt come as had a feeling it probably wouldnt be here, only pre ordered it a couple of weeks ago as i had a voucher for Amazon, hopefully it will come tomorrow

anyway i dont particularly blame Amazon as the order says dispatched so it is sitting with Royal Mail, blame lies with them

So i guess it'll be here tomorrow. Sigh. Bit annoying when everyone and their granny has theirs.

This is the second time i've pre-ordered a game. Last time i got it on the day (Blops 2) but in future i won't be bothering.

My partner just got an email from Tesco saying that they will not be able to fulfil our order for the collectors edition, we get a refund and a standard edition of the game but that's not the point; I turned down overtime to wait in for this and to email to say that you won't be getting it *at all* on the day of release is at best a very poor show.

So long story short, if I want to get the collectors edition from elsewhere (if we can get it at all now) will cost us at least 60 more and the lost overtime waiting in as well.

It was his birthday present, he really wanted the extras, especially the hat. Dreading having to break it to him when he gets home...

Why do people bother pre-ordering, go to a shop and buy it...

mine showed up at 2pm From Amazon.

Im a Amazon Prime Member and not sure if it makes a difference but my Amazon packaging had 48hour Premium on the front?

Maybe Amazon sent them out yesterday with the 48hour postage?

seriously, there are loads of copies on sale at my local asda, what is the fascination with pre-ordering, are people just too lazy to go to the shop...
