OK, so i pre ordered 2 copies of GTA5 - i've only been waiting a year.

I pre ordered from Noel Leeming. I was going to Pre order from MightyApe but was worried it "might" get delayed in the courier so decided to pre order with Noel and pickup before work at 9am.

My question is, will the game be available at 9am does anyone think? i called them but they were unsure.

MightyApe were sending out their couriers today so they obviously had stock in today!

Last thing i want is to rock up to Noel tomorrow morning before work and for them to say "no not ready yet". Then ill have to wait for the following morning!

I'm actually quite concerned, this is an emotional time.

Can't comment as I have no idea what a GTA 5 actually is.

VERY emotional indeed! I could think of nothing worse in my life than a slightly delayed video game :P.

I have not the faintest idea.

Could be anything from a type of plane to an air to air missile for all I know.

Oh. I'm not much wiser but Google tells me that is some sort of game.

They should have it.... their site says released 17th, so you'd assume they'd have then as well.

If you pre-ordered it then they will have it. Legally you should get it on the day since you "pre-ordered" it on a set date. I know my GTA 5 Special Edition is at EB-Games tomorrow.

Yea normally retailers get the games a day or two in advanced. To be honest, Noel Leeming wouldn't have been my first choice for a game pre-order.

Sometimes what happens is that shipments are cut fine to stop retailers breaking embargo. Which could mean that a non-specialist gaming store like NL might get their shipment in a large box in their warehouse arriving late in the morning tomorrow. And then someone would need to find out which box. And get it for you. This is only a possibility though.

So, you're pretty sure it's something airborne, at least?
