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

11 Replies 648 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

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.

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.

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