How to get the game early

Recommended Posts

letsgoraptors

Does anybody hear know of any retailer that notoriously sends games out early?

 

Or any other hack to get the game as early as possible?

 

Thanks guys!

I think it comes down to unpredictability with mail services.  I've heard people ordering games from amazon and get them a day or two early.. And some order and get them a day late. Not worth that risk to me, so I go digital to ensure I can play at midnight.

 

Prior to GTAV, I went to a few stores and offered money to get the game early.. No dice. :(

In the UK ShopTo is known for delivering games a day early. That said, when GTA V was released Rockstar contacted basically all UK game retailers and had them withhold shipping the game until the Thursday, so no one got GTA V early except a few Amazon customers in Ireland I believe - which Rockstar weren't happy about. They will most likely do the same thing here, so I wouldn't hold hope over getting the game earlier from any UK retailer.

 

The only other way, legally speaking, is knowing someone who owns or runs a game store and will slip you a copy on the downlow.

Go on your phone or computer and change the dates a day back, so when the 26th comes it will actually be the 25th. That I can guarantee works everytime,
 

Spoiler

there is no other guaranteed way, other than knowing the right people.

No hacks possible, however the best retailer for sending games early in the UK is ShopTo, a mate of mine from work received his Spider-Man a day early as well(on Thursday).

I'm hoping the same thing will happen to my RDR2 ;)

From what I know, Simplygames are good for getting games a day early and they're a little more lax when it comes to listening to publisher requests, so they MAY be a better option for getting the game a day early in the UK as ShopTo will 100% hold them back if Rockstar enforce it (90%+ chance they do). I can't vouch for their service though, where as ShopTo has been 10/10 for me for years.

Move to the UAE. They're notorious for getting games early and breaking street dates, but then they've also been quiet for some of the big releases this year...

 

In the US though the current word from Gamestop is they'll be able to sell/preorders at 9pm local time on Thursday the 25th, so you don't have to wait until midnight. Hoping this holds as I'm all for getting more playtime that night! lol

How does getting a physical copy work when you go to install it? On my digital pre-order its there, but if I click on it I get a message saying I'm a little too early (still worth a shot to check, right?) So say someone at gamestop has no F's to give and sells a copy a few days early, when you go to install it will everthing work right or would you be blocked from loading the game up?

lol, you are installing your physical copy offline, so there is no issue whatsoever. Once you get the game early you are good to go.

I preordered from Amazon (Germany). The last game i preordered was GTA V and i got it a day before release. Whatsoever, if it doesn't come on Oct. 25th i'll also buy the digital standard edition so I can play at midnight.

That's pretty fair because  on 9 PM (your local time) other parts of the world will already be playing.
