It's already been confirmed that online retailers wont be shipping games before the 16th, so you definitely wont be playing before release day. If you paid for first class delivery then you'll receive it on the 17th, if not then you'll probably receive it after that date.

Its been CONFIRMED multiple times Amazon Uk will ship on the 14th. GO ask Amazon Livechat and ask them to check your individual order number and they tell you what it says for you order.

 

I'd like to think that it will be dispatched on Saturday, but then I found this reply from Amazon to a persons question about shipping...

 

"Thank you for your inquiry! Most orders ship the next business day after you place your order. For standard ground, transit usually takes 4-6 business days after leaving our warehouse. For expedited shipping, trasit takes 2-3 business days after leaving the warehouse. Please note that delivery carriers do not pick up or deliver on weekends so delivery and transit days are only Monday - Friday. Please feel free to call our customer service team if you have any additional questions, they will gladly assist you in making the proper arrangement so your gift will arrive at it's destination in time."

. When will the U.S. amazon get copies of grand theft auto5 in their warehouses and when will they start to sending out shipping/tracking emails?

I like some of the pettiness of people who are mad at the ideal someone would receive the game one day earlier. "I am unhappy therefore some else should not be happy". If someone receives the game earlier, good for them and I hope they enjoy it. It's not going change anything for me playing.

No, nobody can do anything if you've been sold it legitimately and you play it early, it's the retailer who is in the sh*t

My own order through amazon is being "Dispatched now". Depending on where the game is coming from e.g. England the earliest it could arrive is Monday. But if the warehouse is here in Ireland/Northern Ireland it could be here by tomorrow.

My delivery estimate says the 17th, that's it. They usually broaden their estimate, for example, 17th-25th. If they say the 17th then that means they are 100% sure it will arrive on the 17th. This is to avoid angry phone calls.

I checked to see and I don't think there are any fulfillment centres in Ireland. Our copies will most likely be coming from either Scotland or England, possibly Wales.

No there is not a warehouse/fulfillment centre in Ireland, here's a list of them in the UK:

 

Rugeley, England

Hemel Hempstead, England

Marston Gate, Milton Keynes, England

Doncaster, England

Peterborough, England

Dunfermline, Scotland

Gourock, Inverclyde, Scotland

I first used the first class delivery, but would've been dispatched on the 16th with it arriving on the 18th. I wasn't happy so i contacted Amazon through the livechat, and they upgraded my delivery to one-day with no charge. SO it'll be dispatched on the 16th and arrive on the 17th! Happy days!

Amazon dispatched mine yesterday (14th) so people saying they won't dispatch until day before release (16th) are wrong.

you cannot always rely on amazon and postal services. ive had 2 games from amazon that should of been here on release day and wasnt. i even had to wait an extra 3 days after release date for grid 2. its also royal mail snail mail that can mess you up. im hoping i get it on release day but im not banking on it. not here in uk from amazon anyway

 

I've never had any issues w/ deliveries from Amazon. Usually I just have to wait awhile on the day I'm expecting it because of the UPS routes, they usually show up later in the evening, tho I'm not far at all from the hub.

But it is also why the "V" Amazon U.S. pre-orders also display this

 

"Delivery Estimate Tuesday, September 17, 2013 by 8:00pm"

 

It is not guaranteed, only estimated, if it were a guarantee and it didnt arrive on time then you could get a refund/credit or something.
