simon14: OK, so i pre ordered 2 copies of GTA5 - i've only been waiting a year.

 I was going to Pre order from MightyApe but was worried it "might" get delayed in the courier 



My preorder from MightyApe arrived at 06:44 this morning. Too bad I leave home at 05:30.

Don't know why people preorder when there's always heaps of stock on day one. Sure you get a bonus gun in this game or a nice costume in that game, but is it worth it to have to wait for something to arrive when you could just walk into a shop and walk straight back out with the game?

Clearly I'm referring to preorders that result in a delivery.

a) I pre-ordered the last time I got paid. I'm poor right now and don't get paid for another week (monthly pay).
b) No lines, no waiting around.
c) Dicksmith is the only place in my town that sells it and last time I checked it was way more expensive than MightyApe (although I now see they have it at $99 on special).
d) I didn't have to wait around. My copy arrived well before any store opened this morning. 
e) Blimp!

There's 5 reasons for you.

No pre-order for me, no lines, and $88 off the shelf.

Fair enough on the other reasons though.
