Just because we haven't received an email yet doesn't mean they weren't picked up earlier in the day. 

That's true but we were told that we would recieve the email once it has been dispatched. since it is now 18:09 and still have received no email im losing hope :).

they did say because of the amount of emails Roxi says:

  I do apologise, it is because of the amount of emails that had to be sent out

Just checked my old emails and the last pre-order I did, it came through at 18:51 PM. Really wouldn't sweat on it too much.

Just got an email from DPD confirming dispatch of my Collectors Edition. Will be here tomorrow!! :panic:

 

 

Was expecting an email from GAME themselves, as that's who I was looking for, email wise but when I was saw it from DPD saying it's been dispatched, I jumped out my seat!!

Fair enough, It seems the guys that have DPD aren't getting emails from GAME but direct from DPD so maybe it is because of the load, fingers crossed :)

With standard delivery I think the email has always come from GAME so maybe that's why with how much work they've gotta do.

If you have an Apple device, download iFruit whilst you're waiting for GTA V. It's what I'm doing anyway.

No dispatch email for my SE and it'll be 7pm soon. I really want the game tomorrow because I'm hopefully getting my new telly tonight just for this bloody game. I hope Rockstar never does these release date embargos again, they're bollocks.

Hello guys, I am from Croatia and I preordered gta from game few weeks ago. Last Thursday i got mail from Game and this is part of it:

"Hi there,

Great news! We've started processing your order and will have it ready for delivery very soon."
"Also, please note that if you use our online tracker it may show your order as 'shipped' - this means we have packed your order ready for delivery - get ready for release day!"
That night they took my money from acc and changed status to shipped. What do you think, can I expect game to arrive tommorow because shipping to Croatia takes 3-5 buisness days?

If it's coming from the same place as ours, I would say no. More likely the end of the week.

This is one mail too: " At GAME we strive to have all preorders delivered on the scheduled day of release. To help ensure this happens we will dispatch the preordered items one to two, sometimes three days prior to release. "

Was that email sent before or after Rockstar's incredibly abnormal request?

GAME is not and has not dispatched GTA V earlier than the 16th. Rockstar requested that no UK retailers dispatch the game before the 16th (today) and GAME adhered to that request. You'll probably receive your game at the of the week.

unfortunately Rockstar asked them to not dispatch them until today, unless they did it early for mainland europe, I wouldn't expect it. You have had the same e-mail on the same date as many of us in the UK have had.

It's not their fault they have to send games out on the 16th... and that international shipping/airfreight doesn't just take a day to arrive.

So has anyone that has not ordered the collector's edition (those are being handled by DPD, not Royal Mail) received a dispatch email from GAME yet for their standard/special editions?

It is their fault, that's the reason why we're complaining. A request is something you can refuse to do, a contract is not.

 

@Lisha: Nope.

Well, seeing as Game have an exclusive contract with Rockstar to sell the special edition, I'd hazard a guess to say they're honouring whatever they ask them to. As if they don't, they'll miss out on the same deal with any future release from them.

Well, the money was taken from me and was apparently shipped on the 12th, and has apparently been dispatched since.

 

I'm hoping this means it's at the nearest RM Depot or something, which for me is a short spin down the road, I'm hoping this also means it'll arrive tomorrow. If it doesn't, I'm going to be pretty disappointed.

You would think that an 'established' company would be more organised than they currently are for the biggest game launch.

If they have shipped them to the Royal Mail, then out of common decency and professional standards they'd send everyone a simple dispatch email, at least everyone would know where they stood.

Have you had a new email today? if not, i'd check that e-mail again buddy. Shipped on GAME's website just means packed up ready for collection.

I wonder if GAME's just focusing on getting all the games sent out first and our dispatch emails will come later. Feeling a bit worried atm but hearing that you guys haven't received your emails yet helps (I mean, I'm not happy that we're still in the dark but knowing that it's not just me makes me feel a bit better). :'(

DPD's site says they received my parcel information at 16:36. They then sent me an email about it an hour later.
