The lights are on
If you have made a visit to the Internet in the past 24 hours, you may have noticed that there are a few people who have Grand Theft Auto V early. Rockstar Games is looking into how that happened.
In a statement offered to GamesIndustry.biz, Rockstar said, "We are in the process of investigating early 'sales' to determine how and why that is occurring." Online retailers like Amazon have reportedly been shipping copies of the game early to pre-order customers.
Grand Theft Auto V officially releases on Tuesday, September 17. Head here for the latest trailer for the game.
Our TakeThe big downside of early copies leaking is the prevalence of spoilers on the Internet. Rockstar wants everyone to experience Grand Theft Auto V in the same way, without prior knowledge of the story etc., so its insistence on dealing with leaks is admirable. After the previous leak from Sony, I wonder if future Rockstar Games releases will be held to stricter standards.

Why couldn't I get a my copy early?
People have been getting CoD a week early. A guy I meant online got PlayStation All Stars 2 weeks early. How is this a huge surprise?
I went to see some gameplay, but I kept getting ones with missions I don't wanna see that ***. That's the stuff I want to experience. Some free roam stuff I wouldn't mind watching a bit of though :) that midnight re,ease can't come quick enough.
I demand my copy to be in my hands right now!
Anyone who has access to it and loves $$$
They've also started cracking into the code and found evidence of plans to release on pc and next gen in the code
Ps2 version was perfect. Gta4 was a buggy, and On foot movements were wonkey, the combat was horrible. I got sleeping dogs two weeks back, I had never played it. I have to say I was truely amazed, it was like the gta I always imagined. They got the mechanics right, just like the swinging from spiderman 2 on ps2, there was actual geometry in the swinging. The amazing spiderman was horrible, one could swing with one hand. So the side thrills and story is important,but the mechanics must be right.
I opened a box at work yesterday and it was full of Grand Theft Auto V. The following scene played out similarly to the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
there already being sold on ebay i seen two people with them already in hand with pictures of the games on there kitchen table or counter top for ps3
Enough GTAV articles! I'm tires of this! Everywhere there are articles. I just want the play the damn game!
Just came back from paying off the game at my local Gamestop. Was crossing my fingers the cashier would offer me the game on the spot. Alas, she didn't.
I have a copy already. Just kidding, no I don't.
i dont see what the big deal. if the game is releasing on tuesday, what a few people having copies early gonna change? i never understand the big deal with this and if i get a copy i will play it, just dont go online. the investigation wont do crap because big games will always have this issue and it is okay.
i've seen spoilers and i dont feel one bit of guilt the game looks MAD good
Past 24 hours? make that 168 hours.
Somehow the game was leaked. It's already on torrent trackers, on youtube I've seen a lot of gameplay videos posted by users from mother Russia, videos that were taken down this morning.
