I ordered GTA V SE Xbox 360 from Game.co.uk and they say it has been dispatched on the 16th. However, they tell me they don't know when will I receive it. I live in Egypt. Can anyone help me on this case and tell me when will I receive it? I don't want it to be delayed for 45 days!!

I still haven't got mine and I'm in the UK. You will probably get your before I do.

Last time it took me 8 days (including Saturday, Sunday and a holiday). So about 5 business days.

I live in Egypt as well, pre-ordered the special edition from Play N Trade, the shipment arrived earlier today but won't be cleared from the customs till Saturday. 2 more days for me.

 

Edit: Last time I ordered GTA IV from Amazon US, took 8 days to be delivered to my house via shop & ship. (Aramex).

 

Hope that helps.

Play N Trade's problem is that they are SO DAMN expensive!

Standard edition costs 499 EGP, that's the price for most new games on the PS3. SE would've costed me 800 EGP if I had ordered and shipped it by DHL, so it's just 50 EGP more through them. Not much of a difference, unless you wanna wait for a longer time.

Add 5 days to the day it was shipped but do not count the non business days.

The problem is, I needed the SE PAL since there might be regional problems with the additional contents so I went with Game.

Guys make sure you do not count the weekend days and maybe even the shipping day, so 5+3 days, expect it 7-8 days from the shipping date.

Ordered from them twice, both times it took about 5 days + the weekend.

Do they ship by Royal Mail? If yes, then you probably won't receive it for another 2-3 weeks. (Cause Royal Mail delivers the shipment to Egyptian Postal Service.

 

You should've ordered it from here, got mine last Saturday and I've been playing for a week now.

Outside UK and no game here either. They said they shipped it 16th, but i think they sold it to someone else since they already had my money from the preorder, and now im the one waiting them to get copies in stock.

Did you guys get it yet. It's now 3 weeks from game's alleged shipping date and still no game here. Funny how the copy i preordered for my brother from amazon.uk came in 4-5 working days after launch.
