I've pre-ordered GTAIV on play.com. I got an email saying: "We are currently sold out on this item. All orders will be dispatched on a first come first served basis."

 

So does that mean even thou i've pre-ordered my copy. I wont be getting it on the release date which is the 29th?

 

I really hope that's not the case. If it is, I would much rather you lied to me & said "Oh no! Ofcourse you will get your copy on the release date" sarcasm.gif

Depends where you are on the list....When did you pre-order? If it was after April 7th, you may have problems - before that and you should be ok

i think it means that they didn't get in enough stock to fulfill all the orders, and so because other people pre-ordered before you, you have to wait. thats why i bailed out on online ordering, i asked them and they warned me that might happen.

I don't know how it works for you guys, but the local Gamestop where I pre-ordered mine basically guarantees your copy if you put down a deposit. They'll stop taking deposits if and when they know they can't fill the orders.

 

I wouldn't worry too much. They know the demand for this game is pretty high, so I doubt their not pressing enough copies to at least take care of pre-orders.

you have not payed a deposit, your money does not leave you account till the order is processed, so if you want to get it on release day i suggest you cancel your order and try every shop in your city

I had the exact same query so I phoned them up. They said if you preordered less than a month ago, then you are NOT guaranteed to get it.

 

If you pre ordered months ago, then you are.

0845 8001020. As for using a telephone, I can't help you with that. You could ask a grownup for help though.

Thanks very much man - strange, I pre-ordered about 12 days ago. Would it be a better option to put a deposit down in a store?

I pre-ordered mine on the 1st July 2007 Lol (I wanted to make sure I got it on time), I used the 0845 number on the bottom of the website and asked if I was to get it on time and they confirmed that I will.

 

I don't know how much of a back-log there is though.

I do not know if gamestop delivers to where ever you may be but if it does just cancel your order and order from gamestop with overnight shipping and it will be on your doorstep the 29th gaurenteed!

Cancel the pre-order and just stroll into your local store on the 29th and buy it. There will be stock.

Why are you so angry buddy? I'd prefer to get an answer on here like I have just received rather then spend money on an 0845 number which is quite exspensive.

I would assume if you ordered before their stock of the title was low, you should be on that list to get your game sent out.

putting a deposit down in stores usually guarantees you a copy. I went and talked to the people at Gamestop over the weekend and asked if I reserved a copy then but didn't go to the midnight opening, if my copy would still be available the next morning. He said it would be, so I plan to wait until the huge crowds go away and just walk in and get mine.

 

According to several people on here, they'll actually honor the reserve, so it seems like preordering is the way to go. icon14.gif

Aussie, I'd say you're golden. But if you're really concerned about it, I would call them up and just confirm your order and ask them if they plan on holding all reserved copies for preorder customers.

 

Good luck, dude, one more week!
