GAMES DEVELOPER Rockstar games has released a list of stockists for Grand Theft Auto V and what you might get from them.
There is an extensive list of preorder countries and websites, we'll stick to the UK ones for now. So, starting with Game. If you preorder the game online there it will cost you £40.99 on the Xbox. Prices might vary in the store, though.
Head to Rockstar's store only if you need a t-shirt and a gaping hole in your pocket. There the game, which it will send out for free on release day, will cost you £54.99. But you will get a t-shirt for your troubles.
At Sainsbury's, where you can also buy enough high energy drinks to see you through the game, you'll want £44.99. Loyalty card holders will get 88 Nectar points. You pay the same for both Playstation 3 and Xbox versions. Zavvi has it up at £39.98 on both consoles. Amazon is £39.99 on both, with free delivery, though that might mean you get it a couple of days behind everyone else.
Tesco is the same, with free delivery again, and Blockbusters wants £42.85 from you. Shopto ups that to £44.86, and Gamestop raises everyone, except Rockstar, with its £49.97 price tag.
According to CVG in Australia, scammers are already using the game to lure early bird players that want to throw someone out of a car and drive off with it in their bootleg beta versions.
Several complaints have been filed by Take Two Interactive with the World Intellectual Property Organisation about domains including gta5betacode.com and the similar sounding grandtheftauto5beta.com.
Four websites have been accused of running off with the GTA trademarks and name, and Take Two wants all four taken down. µ
