Where will you pre-order from?

I'm just going to pick it up from GAME store or maybe order from Amazon few weeks before release.

I'll most likely pre order from amazon. Unless somewhere else has some kind of amazing pre order incentive.

im not really finding any pre-order incentives in the UK so ill prob just pre-order it next year once christmas is over and done with. Hoping for a worldwide release as i hate having to get games after everyone in other countries, seeing reviews and youtube videos just rubbing it in my face for being scottish .

Pretty much from Amazon. Let's see what pre-order incentives they got and maybe I'll pre-order somewhere else

Wherever is cheapest a month before the game releases, i don't see the point in pre-ordering now as they will probably announce pre-order bonuses at some point, not to mention a limited/collectors edition of some kind.

Id rather wait and see which shops gets the best price/bonus/edition then watch the retailers engage in a price war.

pre-ordered from Tesco Entertainment like a year ago, they shut down that site though, so I can't check the status or anything :/

Probably not Gamestop. Maybe Amazon? I haven't thought about it yet. Depends on what the pre-order stuff is.

that's what i was hoping for initially, but i don't have high hopes that there will be one. GTA IV didn't have one, Red Dead didn't, L.A. Noire didn't, it's not something Rockstar seem to go in for.

Err...

Amazon.com: Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition: Xbox 360: Video Games Amazon.com: Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition: Xbox 360: Video Games




GTA IV: Special Edition features a customised metal safe deposit box that will contain the following:

A specially packaged version of the Grand Theft Auto IV game
A Rockstar keychain for the safe deposit box keys.
A limited edition Rockstar duffel bag.
Production artwork from GTA IV in the "Grand Theft Auto IV Art Book".
Selected soundtrack CD from Grand Theft Auto IV, featuring new material from top artists, only available on this release.


Red Dead

http://www.rockstargames.com/newswir...lectibles.html



And L.A. had a huge bundle for pre-ordering that could be considered a limited edition.

*Sigh* Google.

So based off of the evidence there will indeed be a limited edition of GTA V.

Defiantly picking up a LE, I still use the duffel bag from IV too. Probably JB Hi-fi or EB's, for the Aussies out there.

Last time I pre-ordered something LE it had to be done online, and with postage instead of in-store pick up. Never again. Got the game 3 days after release and the plot was already ruined by friends/online media. Ugh. Learned from that mistake.

Wish you had access to Amazon like Americans do. Delivery on release day if pre-ordered, and for prime members it is free.

I buy blu-rays over Amazon and save upto 20-50% most times, but the shipping time is what kills me.

I haven't been too fussed over a particular game in years so im not worried if I miss out release day. However its never too hard to just ask the day off work, which I may just do anyways

In saying that, im wondering if GTA V will have a midnight release? A few big name games seem to be going down that road lately.

Ahh good so you do use Amazon. And I figured shipping would really hurt. To be frank, if you could, picking it up at a midnight release or some daytime pick up would probably be best.

And I would guess GTA would have a midnight release. It'll be huge.

ShopTo - Just because everyone says you get the game early or on release date.

Yup, ShopTo are great.

Hopefully they might give away free t-shirts like they did with pre-orders for LA Noire (and I think also with Max Payne 3?)

EB will usually ship the game a couple of days early so you get it on release date.

Mostly likely from Gamestop since I'm moving to a new house around spring and I'm not sure if I can pre-order from Amazon.

I'm waiting for news on a collectors edition and preorder bonuses. If its something worth while I'll pre order that from GameStop but if not I'll just pick up the standard game at work when it comes out.

pre-ordering a game more than a few weeks before release is just useless and dumb imo.
especially half a year to a year. a lot of shit can happen in that time.

Like B4R4D said, you can cancel, and since I ordered now I got a poster and view finder guaranteed.
