I cant find anywhere on the web where to preorder GTA , what should I do?

I assume you checked the most popular stores in your area?

And if you can't do it over the web, then I guess you'll have to go to the store and pre-order it.

I preordered from Amazon.com last month sometime

I looked into BestBuy.com , WalMart.com , and DeepDiscount.com they all have preorders I believe.

Go to your local GameCrazy, Gamestop, whatever game store and ask to pre-order.

I pre-ordered from the local EB games and after I finished paying they said, "OK so we'll let you know when your copy comes in. We've had a crazy amount of pre-orders so you might not get it the day it comes out." I was ready to bust skulls.

Amazon should do it. So should your local game store's website, or even your local game store itself.

in england the only store i know pre-ordering ne more is blockbusters and even if u do pre-order there is still no certainty that u will recieve a copy at launch!

ebgames.com / gamestop.com you can pre order it there, I just went and preordered it myself to check for you, I canceled mine I dont like GTA but I did it to make sure you can... so I suggest trying that if your still looking to pre order online.

I know you can pre-order from Gamestop.com and walmart.com

I notice you're English and are in the UK. If you've tried every single UK website that preorders and ships games, and you have no gaming outlets near you then you're S.O.L.

Hook up with one on Ebay afterward, I guess. I had this pre-ordered months ago, which is what you should do for any highly anticipated games. Hell I'm getting ready to pre-order GoW2.

Amazon do pre-orders in England. I have pre-ordered a game from there before and got it on release day :)

UK Amazon still have available pre-orders..

Amazon.co.uk: Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360): PC & Video Games

You couldn't of looked very hard..

*Edit nevermind.. just noticed the :
Due to high demand for this product, we have sold out of our pre-order allocation for dispatch on April 28th. Should you place an order on or after the 8th of April, this will be for additional stock that we hope to dispatch on May 1st. Please check your order’s expected delivery estimate for more accurate information.
guess im just lucky i pre-ordered mine from amazon 2 months ago..

Really you shouldn't of left it so late.. games with less hype have sold out faster..

have you tried HMV? i work in my local one and we have 100 copies coming in and about 40 pre-orders and it's not a huge store so maybe give them a call.

One of my friends at the post office said they have just got 800 HMV DVD shaped packages come in for sorting to be sent 2mo to arrive monday.. do you know if HMV are sending it early? Just asking because you work for HMV you might know

Allright, fuck me.... The local game store here have GTA on PS3 for sale, and they are getting it for the 360 within a day or two...Now Im not sure if I believe that, so I am going to go check that shit out after the football is done...Although to be fair to that shop, it did stock up and sell Halo 3 a few days before the 25th of September.

I'll update you guys in a while...
