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.

Everyone dies at the end of the game.
Idk if a lot of people know this but there are some pretty steep fines that come along with selling copies of games before the street date. In most cases its a fine per copy... why risk getting fined when you can just wait a few days to sell it legally?
i wish i had an early copy lol

I can't see the problem.
I'm really looking forward to Beyond: Two Souls and the story, so I just avoid any articles about the game.
Rockstar, don't take it to seriously.
Yeah My cuz got a copy. Its free promo lets not B.S rockstar. This is like a couple of years ago where people got MW3 early
Yes, that would be a natural response if they were given out early.
Good thing I don't play these kinds of games, because this one was spoiled to me a couple of days ago.
