GTAIV and ASDA - Can I get it without a pre-order?

11 Replies 677 Views Created 23-04-2008

Sorry to add to the chunk of GTAIV topics but I need a second (or third, or foruth,...) opinion.

 

I've just called one of the large Asda 24-hour supermarkets (West London) and all I got to answer my questions were a couple of old women who can't even speak English. It took them a while to even know what the game is and kept on telling me to hold back-and-fourth.
From what I could make out, they said ASDA will only sell them online (through pre-orders which it has ran out).

Should I believe them or will they actually sell retail-copies on midnight? Thanks.

There entertainment section might be closed at the time, so its either a hit or miss.

Btw what Asda is it?, im in West London as well, and i might know if there entertainment department is opened at 12.00

Well, that's such is ridiculous. >_>

So does anyone (in West London?) know any places to get a copy without a pre-order?

PC World? 

Woolworths?

GAME and GameStation opening midnight or not even?

I phoned up 2 different 24 hour asdas in leeds, and they both said they are selling them at midnight on a first come first served basis and you are not allowed to order. Im going along to this.

To thenorthend: That's exactly the type of sale I'm looking for. :D

Are they in London by any chance?

A store the size of Asda will most likely have them in stock on the 29th

In my local Asda, they are not taking any proper pre-orders for this game at all as a customer trying to do so. So not sure about if it's first served bases or online only.

Asda will most definatly have GTA in stock, and it's one of the cheapest places to purchase games

I can see something going wrong with this. Asda isn't usually good for doing things that you would expect. I know this because i worked for them for nearly 5 years. I better not get there and they don't have any copies left because they have been selling them early. I'm not sure what time to go up there in case there is a queue etc....

or i can see them only having xbox360 copies in or something. Something is going to go wrong, i can tell.

Hmm, seems to be a mixed bag of expectations from ASDA but...

...Lucky me! I was able to pre-order a retail copy from Blockbuster Games (but it's really Gamestation so God knows it's called this now).
I called this last week and they said it was out-of-stock, what the hell?

So yeah, no need for ASDA but thanks for the replies, I really appriciate it. :D
