Midnight release for GTA V?

Do you guys know if you're planning on having a midnight release for GTA V?  If so, with the Northglenn, CO store have one?  The Northglenn store almost NEVER has midnight releases.  I went to Westminster for Skyrim, but I may just head to WalMart for GTA since going to Westminster is out of the question and Wal-Mart is open 24 hours, so I wouldn't have to wait until 10AM for Best Buy to open...

Alternatively,  what guarantee is there if I were to go with shipping?  Is it guaranteed release day arrival?

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

Since I don't see an option to edit my prior post.... also, are you going to sell the strategy guides?

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

Hello Fizziii-

 

I think anyone who has ever playing a Grand Theft Auto game is excited for the Grand Theft Auto V to come out!

 

We will be having midnight openings for this game, though the store list has not been finalized as of yet.  This will most likely happen a few weeks before the game releases. 

 

Regarding having it shipped to your home, usually if you select Express shipping, it should arrive on release day.  Expedited shipping may arrive on launch day and Standard shipping will generally be 2-3 days after release day.  You can see more on our shipping process here.

 

We currently have the strategy guides available for pre-order, which you can find here.  There should be copies of the regular edition guide available for sale on release date, but I can’t guarantee there would be any of the limited edition guide available that day.

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

How did you get your link that you provided for the game guides?  If I search for "Grand Theft Auto V (Game guide)" (WITH quotes)... the collector's game guide is 13th on the list, and the item with the description that matches my search term EXACTLY is 47th...  I do not feel I'm getting good results from the Best Buy search engine...

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

Please forgive my double post and disregard my previous one.  I reposted it in a different section of the forums where I felt it would be more appropriate... i.e. the bestbuy.com section.  Link to topic here: http://forums.bestbuy.com/t5/BestBuy-com/Can-we-fix-the-searching-on-the-site/m-p/693709#M5913

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

Hi Fizziii-

 

We are always working to improve the search functionality on BestBuy.com, but I do understand your frustrations with it.

 

I searched “Grand Theft Auto 5” and the page that comes up features the games up top and then all the associated titles.  The strategy guides are towards the bottom of the page.  I took the SKU’s from the two guides and put them in the search function to get to the page I linked for you.

 

Thanks for your input regarding the search function.  Just a head’s up, I am going to be moving your other post on the BestBuy.com board.

 

Thanks,

Re: Midnight release for GTA V?

Do you know if any of Best Buy stores that are doing midnight launches for GTA if they are giving away any freebies like: posters, GTA V realted shirts, or other GTA V related apparel?

 

If people show up early and wait a hour or longer outside the Best Buy stores leading up to the midnight launch.

Hello kb24sd-

As far as I know, there are not any giveaways at the Midnight openings for Grand Theft Auto V.
