    Just got this in my inbox:

    Dear Customer

    Grand Theft Auto IV is nearly here!

    Thank you for your order {******} for Grand Theft Auto IV. The highly anticipated GTA IV is due to be with you on Tuesday 29th April. To make sure that we get this title to everyone who ordered it for release day we have had to start our picking and packing process earlier than we would for our normal pre-orders. As a result, we may look to authorise your credit/debit card from tomorrow.

    Kind regards

    Customer Services
    GAME.co.uk

    Now consiering I only pre-ordered the game last week this is positive news..!

    Anyone else got it?

    I ordered from Zavvi and got this e-mail today (I think this is good news):$

    Hello from zavvi

    Thank you for your recent order placed for GTA IV on Xbox 360 which is due for release on 29th April 2008.

    We are sure that you are eagerly anticipating its arrival, so would like to give you an update on your order.

    Your order for GTA IV special edition on Xbox 360 is currently in "back order" status. This means that we are waiting for stock to arrive from our supplier. To process your order smoothly, payment will be requested in the week leading up to the release of the product. As detailed in our terms and conditions we do not request payment until the product is allocated so you should ensure that the payment can be completed successfully. Please note that incomplete payment will unfortunately result in the cancellation of your order and we will be unable to reinstate the order for you (please see our customer service page for further information on pre authorised transactions http://www.zavvi.co.uk/info-help.jsf ).

Please note that the XBox 360 Live 3 month gold membership will be included in your delivery.

    Please note that if you have selected your local zavvi store to have your ordered delivered, your order will be despatched to the store separately with an invoice and will not be part of the stores allocation. Please ensure you inform the store you are collecting an on-line pre order and not a store pre-order.

    Got mine too gang! :thumbsup:

    Not sure this will necessarily ship earlier than we hoped (I'd love a friday/saturday release, but I doubt Game are that stupid) so I'm trawling the supermarkets Saturday! Screw the Utd Chelsea game, I'm hoping (praying) they break release and get it out early. I'll be checking these threads Friday, there'll be some like minded people, all of which can let us know how they got on!! :smashin:

    BTW - Do you reckon the order number is the amount of orders that are before yours? If so, I'm a couple million on the list! :smashin:

    Mine still says Pre-Order at the moment, the strange thing is I ordered 03/04/07 so much for first come first served. They'll all ship out at the same time anyway, if not I'll nip down ASDA. :D

    I'll be checking mine every now and again, mainly because mine is still sitting as a pre-order and I haven't received that e-mail yet. That includes both of my orders, PS3 and 360 versions. Maybe they are doing it by surname or something....:confused:
