the lack of people getting it today makes me think royal mail have been told to hold it back or something.

It's the fact Amazon didn't despatch the game until after the final royal mail pickup on Saturday means it won't arrive till Tuesday. Just like any post you send.

 

there are people who got fri and early sat dispatch who haven't got yet so.....

They have.

 

My mate is a postman and they'd been asked not to deliver any amazon 'dvd looking' packages today.

 

Rockstar begged amazon who have in turn begged the royal mail.

No. Saturday and Sunday are non working days. So anyone who got a "dispatched" status over the weekend or Friday evening is from the Amazon centre. it wont be handed over to the Royal Mail lot till this morning. that's how it works.

 

try ordering something for first class on Saturday morning. you'll get it Tuesday.

Sunday is a working day in the sorting offices.

 

They also do some deliveries if they have a major back log.

 

If it was dispatched saturday it will most likely have been there saturday and sorted on sunday.

 

It's being held back.

Actually, collections can happen on a Saturday.

So apparently this is from Royal Mails twitter account "Hi, #GTAV will be sent out for release day tomorrow, so hopefully you should get it on time :-)"

BULLsh*t! Im on twitter now.. not a thing about GTA. Go away.

It's the verified Royal Mail account. Hense the blue tick next to their name.

So does this forum not accept PNG or jpeg anymore? I get "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."

They were all despatched late Saturday, which means Royal Mail wouldn't have picked them up. A bit like me putting a letter in the post box after the final collection on Saturday.. the letter wouldn't be delivered until Tuesday

If you look hard enough you'll see conspiracies everywhere. I really struggle to believe that Rockstar, Amazon and Royal Mail are colluding to hold up deliveries of a video game. For a start RM wont want their limited storage space taken up with 10s of thousands of the damn things. Nothing is being held up artificially. 90-odd percent of us will get our game tomorrow as planned.

However, RM DO collect from business and bulk mail customers on Saturdays. I know this for a fact as I work in that industry.

Okay I am really confused now. On Saturday, my game and LE guide still said "Not yet dispatched" and I was getting worried. I called and emailed amazon and they said it is being processed right now (this was all on Saturday).

However, I have just got an email today saying my game and guide have been dispatched BUT I have not got a tracking number (1st class btw).

Can anyone help me out on what is going on here because I would really like to be able to track my game and guide

First Class is NOT trackable!

I think that's a package tracking for Amazon. It means the size and weight are okay for the price of postage paid

Yeah looks like we should get it tomorrow :) not too bothered as long as it does come tomorrow lol. IMO if R* did really tell amazon to not send out any dvd looking packages then that's a sh*tty move. People have had the game since like last thursday so I don't see the problem with some getting the game early if they pre ordered. Plenty of games I pre order do come early anyway. Anyway I doubt that is the case
