Mine was dispatched earlier. Can't wait for tomorrow night. If it doesn't arrive tomorrow, I may well cry and then go to bed in rage.

BBC News - Grand Theft Auto 5 in Amazon embargo breach

I had mine pre-ordered about 2 years ago (or whenever Game first started taking preo-orders) but then they were useless with a few other orders so I cancelled everything else I had pre-ordered. Won't be home until Thursday at the earliest anyway, so will probably just go to Tesco and hope they're not sold out.

I did 7hrs on it last night..did the story up to the bit where you plan the heist......did a full lap of the island on jetski swapping to various boats as I discovered them. gutted not to be able to pilot the huge container ships.......got into the military base and got shot by tanks ...... found some awesome dune buggies and some off road beetle things, drove one of them to the top of the highest mountain, found the hidden goodies up there then took the cable car down.


...got eaten by a cougar....got eaten by a shark..ran over some deer....found some awesome roads with long covered bridges over rivers...fell in the dam......got killed by rednecks....found a deserted airfield and some awesome hidden cars in the hanger......was wowed by the visuals .

Good to see the daily mail is on the ball with the expected 'rivers of blood, children murdering each other' type of GTA hysteria. Even Keith Vaz had got in on it, that man seems to have an opinion on everything except parliamentary expenses! :)

Mine arrived, hurrah. Still going to moan like a whore at Amazon though. Looking forward to when the kids are in bed tonight and I can actually play ha.

I hammered about 6 hours last night, and I'll be doing the same again tonight. The wife can rock one for a few nights while no get to play.

I've not met Trevor yet, think it'll be soonish though. Went for a few tours around the countryside, the map is huge.

Destroyed a deer too, that was fun. I love franklins driving skills, it's brilliant! The interweaving of characters is done really good too.

You soon meet Michael, so maybe a few hours playing? I got distracted for the last hour or two I was playing and ended up going up mount chiliad a few times to try parachute off.

I've not been in a plane yet, so hoping to tonight.

Trevor is brilliant! He cracks me up. You could lose hours in this game just wandering around the countryside.

Xbox users are advised not to install Disc 2 (play disc) to the console, and have it running off the disc.


GTA 5: Install The Wrong Disc, Break The Game (VIDEO)




Yep that or save disc 2 (the "play" disc) onto a USB stick, and play it off that...saves the disc drive working overtime all the time and the big fan running at full speed trying to keep it all cool all the while you are playing.




I did it with mine last night (32gb SanDisk Cruzer USB from Amazon)...My Xbox is latest version 250gb.
I had been playing it off the disc without any stutter issues although I wasn't overly happy with how hard the disc drive was working or how hot it was when switching it off.
After playing it off the USB it was noticeably quieter while playing and a lot cooler when I shut it down last night too.


Definitely worth putting the play disc onto USB and running it off that imho

Just going back to the usb flash drives, can anyone recommend a suitable stick or will any work?
