Amazon mistakenly launches GTA V days early in the UK

Amazon UK screws up and ships GTA V to some customers days early (NASDAQ:AMZN, NASDAQ:TTWO)

It appears that Amazon UK has accidentally shipped out copies of Grand Theft Auto V days earlier than the official launch date of September 17. A new report from the BBC suggests that not all Amazon pre-order customers got a copy of GTA V early, but more than a few did.

This release has caused some problems for Rockstar as videos and spoilers have already began popping up online. This mistake marks the third strike for GTA V in content leaks over the last month. Earlier in the month, Sony offered pre-order customers a link that led to the game's soundtrack online as well as some gameplay secrets. Additionally, last week we saw the game's map leaked onto the web from yet another industry insider.

 

GTA V will be available for in-store purchases and online ordering tomorrow, September 17. Rockstar has disclosed that GTA V was the most expensive video game ever made, costing a whopping $265 million. Many of us here at TweakTown expect this to be one of the greatest games released in the history of gaming, but are still a little miffed by the title not been released on PC.
