I've seen this topic going around gtagaming a bit. Does anyone here have a chance of getting the game a bit in advance?
I've got two chances. My friend in electronics at the Target I used to work at told me their listed street date for GTA IV in the electronics book is the 28th. Most likely this is just a typo, but if the higher ups don't change it the store has to sell it on that date.
Another one of my friends knows everyone at our local Gamestop. He goes in pretty often to even just hang out and talk with them. It's his birthday on the 24th and the employees know it, so as a present they're saying they'll probably give him the game early. Knowing the people that work there, I really wouldn't be surprised if they did it. It would be nice to see it 5 days early now. XD
