As everyone who preordered from Game will know they sent out emails on the 4th of September stating. 

 

'Thank you for preordering GTA V from GAME.co.uk

Due to the epic size of GTA V we have a lot to do to make sure it gets to you in time for launch day. 
As a result, we will be processing your order number 161961366 and charging your payment card a 
little earlier than usual.

If your payment is processed successfully you will receive an email letting you know that your order is 
on its way. Your order won't reach you early, the email just means it's being held ready for delivery on 
launch day.

If there is a problem with your order you may receive an email informing you that your order has been 
cancelled. This could be due to a problem with your payment method. If your order is cancelled in this 
way please check that your payment details are correct and place a new order at www.game.co.uk/gtav 

GTA V is released on 17th September and Rockstar, who publish it, have worked very hard to make it the 
biggest gaming launch ever. They have requested that no UK retailer despatch GTA V before the 16th September 
and GAME, along with all reputable retailers, will respect this request. 

Your order is being despatched by Royal Mail First Class who have a 97.6% next day delivery rate. We will ensure 
that your order is despatched via Royal Mail in time for release day.'

 

I just wondered, has anyone has actually been charged yet? from the way they worded it, it did sound like were charging very soon

but not sending out until the 16th.

Good to hear I'm not the only one confused with this.

This does make sense, this game launch seems to be unprecedented. I was chatting to the guys in my local game store today and in our tiny local store they've received 400 preorders, double their previous record. 

I would imagine that Game digital is absolutely rammed with preorders, if they wait until the 15/16th to process payments the server backlog would be immense and people wouldn't receive their games on time.

Ok well good to know I'm not the only one haha, I'm guessing then they'll do it on the thursday/friday, everywhere else from what I know has charged today or before, seems Game like to take their time.

That's definitely my back up, would hate to have booked the day off for nothing, if worse comes to worse I can return one of the copies since it won't have been opened.

I've got a game voucher, drop kids off at school and collect the game from store...then play for six hours... Sod waiting for a courier to be late or not turn up.

Yeah, after this email last week I switch to in-store preorder, I'll be joining the fun at the midnight launch because I just know my luck I'd end up getting it the 18th...not good.

Kirsty, did you just cancel and reorder? I can't do that as it would cost me an extra £10 (it was cheaper when I ordered plus I used a code). Or are they letting people amend their orders? I would really like to upgrade to next day shipping.

I asked a live chat person on their website and they said they will not charge anyone until the week of when its released. So it will be monday the 16th sept when we get charged apparently.

If all else fails i'll be getting the game off the PS Store even though i'll have to pay an extra £10-15. The price I have to pay for being a impatient f*ck!

I advise midnight launch! Why wait an extra 9/10 hours minimum? I've waited years and I'm not prepared to wait any longer!

I've not been charged yet, but I assume it will come out in the next few days.

I got the email about it about 30 mins before they actually took the money from my Paypal account. Card payments may take a little longer to show up.
