So I ordered GTA V off Amazon. I've used Amazon to buy Halo, Call of Duty and other games and they've all arrived one day earlier than release. So I'm just wondering with Rockstar being strict on people playing the game before the 17th will Microsoft be able to ban my account for playing it early?

It's already been confirmed that online retailers wont be shipping games before the 16th, so you definitely wont be playing before release day. If you paid for first class delivery then you'll receive it on the 17th, if not then you'll probably receive it after that date.

Amazon will not ship a day early for GTA V,

 

Period.

 

They've been told by Rockstar to not dispatch TIL monday, so you'll get it on Tuesday, Legitimately.

 

There is no way on gods earth amazon will give you this game a day early, unfortunately, otherwise i'd of pre-ordered from them.

Only GAME UK said it wouldn't be shipping before the 16th, I dont know why suddendly everyone says other retailers cannot ship before.

Amazon wasn't told anything. Stop making up stuff.

I contacted Amazon UK and they are dispatching on Saturday 14th September.

Rockstar have only requested that they don't dispatch before 16th, in no way did they demand this. The only retailer who are respecting there request is GAME.

For orders using the 'first class' method, they are using Royal Mail 1st Class. This is why they are shipping these orders on 14th because it is not a guaranteed next day service.

For orders using the 'one day' or 'expedited', they are using a next day guaranteed service via a number of couriers. However, as they are promised next day services, those orders will not be shipped until 16th.

I've pre-ordered the standard version and checked twice about this. Each time they've repeatedly told me they're shipping on the 14th so it's possible the game could arrive Monday.

If not, meh... I'll get it Tuesday. :barf:

I think I will make this order based on your recommendation, thank you my friend, lets hope we get the game early :)

I actually asked them about the possibility of a tracking number for 1st class delivery. They said they haven't decided on a courier yet so it might not be Royal Mail. They said they'll decide nearer the time so who knows, it could be another company and we might even get a tracking number. :)

Theres a high chance that they use Royal Mail Tracked 24. (Which is the standard 1st class with full tracking).

Well mine says 1st class (up to 2 business days) with an option to change to a free supersaver.
I guess to allow for the 2 business days they will dispatch it quiet early so there is a chance, especially for those of us in London to get it on Monday.

you cannot always rely on amazon and postal services. ive had 2 games from amazon that should of been here on release day and wasnt. i even had to wait an extra 3 days after release date for grid 2. its also royal mail snail mail that can mess you up. im hoping i get it on release day but im not banking on it. not here in uk from amazon anyway

LOL at all the people who think Amazon wont ship before 16th.

 

Please go learn the facts before you post what you claim as the truth.

 

Not once have Amazon said they are sticking to the before mentioned request by R*.

 

They are shipping 90+% of the orders on the 14th all the way through to the 16th.

 

Some will get it a day early (at most)

 

You're just jealous/worried because you are pety kids who shouldn't even be playing the game, but that just shows how good your parents are.

I'd like to think that it will be dispatched on Saturday, but then I found this reply from Amazon to a persons question about shipping...

 

"Thank you for your inquiry! Most orders ship the next business day after you place your order. For standard ground, transit usually takes 4-6 business days after leaving our warehouse. For expedited shipping, trasit takes 2-3 business days after leaving the warehouse. Please note that delivery carriers do not pick up or deliver on weekends so delivery and transit days are only Monday - Friday. Please feel free to call our customer service team if you have any additional questions, they will gladly assist you in making the proper arrangement so your gift will arrive at it's destination in time."
