I wasn't near as frenzied before GTA IV.   I think that incompetent Rockstar marketing has driven the past two agonizing years of misery here on the forum.

I knew it was gonna happen.  So many on this forum hyped this game up to be the next holy grail.  Now any little thing is gonna disappoint them.  "They included other towns but one of them doesn't have a yellow trailer like I wanted!  Game sucks!"

'preorder cancelled' is basically a meme now, doesn't actually mean they did it

People seem to be scruntinizing the game to a level i didnt think possible. Granted rockstar set the standard pretty high but apparently they can never set it high enough

Three words "Mass Effect 3". If anybody knows what happened before it was released, would understand.

Where's your source?

 

The majority of canceled pre-orders will be from customers who didn't have the cash in their account when the stores tried to collect it.

 

You do understand that when people on here say they canceled their pre-order, it's a joke...right?

What TheSwex said.

 

Some users on here have got it stuck in their head that this game is going to perfect in every single way. To simply put it, they over-hyped the sh*t out of it. I think people have got this attitude that everything has to be perfect.

 

The whole driving handling upset is understandable to a point but it is laughable at how some of the biggest critics on these fourms about the subject haven't even played the game yet!

 

In fact it's downright pathetic seeing the same moaning twats constantly write the same rant everytime and act like R* have carried out major war crimes!

 

At the end of the day, it's only a f*cking game.

On GTAForums, "pre-order cancelled" is just an overused sarcastic response to rant topics, keep in mind.

This is nothing compared to the days leading up to IV. More leaks, maybe. However, I don't remember the forums being this immature.

R* also f*cked up the marketing for Max Payne 3. They should have only showed the New York flashback scenes. Instead they showed us a bald Max Payne.

During the last 2 years, some people mentalized themeslves about this game being perfect, they drove their expectationstoo high, and then, when the game doesn't have something they wanted, the cry at R*.

If anybody who is excited about this game let something they read on these forums deter them from trying the game then they are an idiot and cannot think for themselves.

yeah all this "pre-order canceled" is just a way of trolling people (and make them mad i guess) obviously no one's gonna cancel the pre-order of a game like this, only if you have some serious mental issues...

If anyone actually did cancel then good. We're weeding out the whining kids that would probably moan and complain on the microphones. "I WANT CHOCOLATE MILK MOM... YOU B!
