HMV sent me an email this morning saying my GTA IV is already in the post. 2-5 day delivery.

 

Monday delivery could be possible?

HMV are doing Special Delivery, its's 24 hour and requires a signature, but Saturday is no longer a working day in Parcel Force's eyes so you may get it tomorrow, you may not. Shame the Special Edition's still not in stock sad.gif

Roll on 29th April

I too have ordered from HMV and have the same emails etc. I think we can expect to have the game on Saturday which is amazing news. Parcel Force and Royal Mail are two different companies AND the game is coming through Royal Mail so get ya munchies in, plump up your sofa cushions, turn the phone off and be sure to answer the door tomorrow morning coz there is a huge possibility you will be playing GTA4 this weekend! colgate.gif

normal edition on xbox.

 

SE is not worth the cash for what you get. lets face it the soundtrack cd is the only good thing about the SE. who the f*!K wants a bag and a metal tin?

 

the sountrack is also on the net right now. many torrents

£40 for GTAIV and free 1000pts is the best deal out there. hmv only

 

or amazon £35 straight up!

Mate, I am sure you will not get gta4 today as the game was sent out quite late on yesterday (after 3pm). I hope I am wrong but am pretty sure I ain't! Sucks for you what with jury service man.

Yeah, it'd be Saturday at the absolute earliest I'd reckon...

 

Keep trying the tracking number on RoyalMail.com.

my dad works at the sorting office and says that if royal mail recieve it by 5pm today, it should be delivered the next day. He said that if there are too many some will get them on monday. So I would say you will be very unlucky to get it tuesday. Lets hope he is right colgate.gif

Im fairly confident for a Saturday delivery tbh, mine was despatched 24/04, its usually a 24hr turnaround for the special deliveries.

 

The voucher book will probably go to waste, its for spending on HMV games stuff. Whos gonna buy anything else this year?? hehe

And let's hope that whoever's supplying HMV with the special editions pulls their finger out and get the stock to them NOW!

I don't like that with these retailers being so biased I even asked HMV customer services why is there only vouchers just for the XBOX 360 version only? icon13.gif I got an e-mail back from them but they didn't really answer my question. dozingoff.gif

 

Why not include vouchers for the Playstation 3 version too? It doesn't make much sense.

 

I am doubting in whether I will get my copy now even next Tuesday. I know these things can happen occasionally and stock comes in late but still I was hoping to be playing Grand Theft Auto IV on the release date. sad.gif

Mine was sent out yesterday and alas, I didn't get it today. confused.gif

Hopefully tomorrow, and the people who had it sent out today, probably Monday.

However there might be a stroke of luck, and I merely lost out today.
