Broken date in Spain and a sellout in the UK
In the latest 'Grand theft Auto V' round-up, it appears that the game is available for pick-up from at least one shop in Spain. When one store breaks the date, competitors often feel justified doing the same. At the same time, the biggest fear for the store is a rocky relationship with Rockstar and parent company Take-Two, which includes 2K Games.
Meanwhile, European PSN users are upset with Sony over a change in the date for pre-loading. Sony had promised that the game would be available to preload three days in advance of release, but has cut that down to one day. The decision may be related to a previous 'GTA V' leak in the EU PlayStation Store.
Amazon UK has (at least temporarily) sold out of 360 copies of 'GTA V.' For now, the PS3 version is still available for launch day delivery.
Finally, unscrupulous 360 owners are bragging about running torrents for the 360 version. If true, it's likely that many such owners will soon be banned from Xbox Live.
