    Haven't needed to pre-order a game in years. Gamestop always has copies of the popular games, if not then Best Buy, Walmart, Target or Toy's R Us will.

    Mine is coming from Amazon so I will have it around 5-6pm. I would not rely on getting a copy at Gamestop or similar stores, because there will be a huge line for it in most areas. You are better off at Kmart, target, or a similar store. You will get a copy but I expect it to be sold at at many stores. I remember driving near a Gamestop when GTA4 launched and how crazy it was. It will be even crazier now.

    Had an e-mail from GAME this morning telling me that my copy is being processed and should be ready to be delivered soon.

    Not bragging; just saying.

    Cool! If it doesn't come for whatever reason on the release day I won't be pissed that I haven't got it. Just a little worried that it doesn't get lost.

    $#@!in amazon!
    They told me to pick 2 day shipping to get it on release day, when I preordered it in July, and now it's been shipped but has a delivery date of Wed. The 18th!
    Wtf! amazon! Now I have to wait another day? Thanks Amazon.

    This is usually the case around where I live. The gamestop near me always has a line leading around the corner and outside at any Midnight launch. And then you're out of luck for a couple days until they get a new shipment. But if I simply go three floors down to bestbuy, I can pick up a copy in 5 minutes. It was like this with the last of us and all the CODs.

    I can see GameStop ordering extra copies of GTA V because it's a popular title. He should be fine. Still, doesn't hurt to pre-order.

    He'll get over it. Doesn't change the fact that he's disappointed.....but yes #firstworldproblems.

    He still can. He can pick a copy up from Best Buy and start playing the game tomorrow. When he gets his copy from Amazon, he should go and return that one to Best Buy.

    Got off the phone with GameStop earlier (calling to see when they were doing numbers) and they were still accepting new pre-orders, so it's possible others would still have some available tomorrow for walk-ins.

    Heading out now though to go get my number to make midnight launch easier/quicker.

    EDIT: Throughout waiting in line there were a few people who came and bought/pre-ordered it as a walk-in. And that's with well over a hundred people in line already, so hopefully that means stores will have no problem with stock for those who didn't pre-order.

    Now, to read through the booklet while it installs.

    Just got my copy. That store was packed! But they had a lot more for walk ins left. So there really wasn't a need to pre-order in my opinion

    Did you check the tracking number? Mine says tomorrow but it's "out for delivery" so I am getting it today.

    Pre-ordering online always made me nervous, never knew if I would get it the day it releases or the next day.

    Yeah there are plenty copies left in stores. Funny fact: Here in Berlin there are almost twice of X360 GTA5 copies left then for PS3. I know shocking news but it kinda looks funny when u see the two stacks compared side by side.
    Installing right now... canīt wait to knock over my first passersby.

    I managed to get a copy after a 30 minutes waiting lane which mostly took that much because some kids decided to pick up their pre-ordered copies without giving them any information and it would take to long for them to figure out which number they gave or which name stuff like that, I even got a Download code for the BLIMP without pre-ordering.

    To be honest, a concern like that never really crossed my mind, because it never occurred to me how sad some people can be.
