torrent, mom and pop store, stores like 7/11 or supermarket who sell early on accident, or break in and steal it

Retailers sell it early. Unless you're an imbecile and steal from a shipping company.

You can't, brotha. Most people are hoping that preordering online will give them a roll of the dice to hopefully have the game shipped to them one to two days earlier than release date. That or they're hoping they can get their local store to break the sale date. However, that second option doesn't seem to be viable as I believe I've read that Rockstar isn't shipping the game until a few days before sales date to prevent this from happening.

I think some places that you order from send it a day or two early depending on who you order from.  Usually it comes out the day of release, but things happen, you know?

Yeah but I assume you live in foreign countries or America? I imagine the stores are more lenient? In england we don't have stores that sell GTA apart from the big shops, but they will never sell it early

You need to wake up early if you want the game early, or you need to stay up a little longer to go to a nightlaunch

Some people are friends or have relations who work in a game store or warehouse who receive stock just before release and are able to get a copy early without the boss knowing.

Also some people are just lucky and have them arrive early in the post if they are dispatched before Monday.

What where the hell do you live, there's a shop near me that sell games early hopefully il get it on the friday 13th I will post a pic to prove it,
Just look around your nearest town or city Center for small independent retailers many do it to compete against the major shops like GAME

Lol didn't pay attention to your name surely they have small retailers in Essex

I live in New York City and it's very easy just to go to your local Mom & Pop store and buy it early, it all depends if they have the shipment or not

I live in like a small town. The closest to me are shops that are centred in huge shopping centres.. I doubt they will sell early there. The closest game shop to me is a blockbusters, but i owe them £45 so I doubt I'd even get to the negotiation table....

What shop in england are you getting it from?

It would be very stupid of me or any one else to give a shops name away online for obvious reasons, but like I said if all goes to plan they told me 13th, I will happily post a pic, R* seem to be doing a good job at stoping the game getting out early so far, they would normally have a game over a week early

A lot of Indy games stores sell it early to friends and trusted people.

And there are plenty of them in England. Forum shops etc normally have them.

I just spoke to my local independent game store and they are hoping to have the game for Saturday at the earliest. They always put games on the shelves when they come in to try to compete with the bigger companies like GAME. I was hoping they would have them delivered by Friday but it looks like I may have to wait another day

I wish I had a mom & pop shop to buy videogames from, sadly, all we have around here are GameStops on top of GameStops.
