Some Amazon Customers Received #GTAV Early; Rockstar Investigating

It appears there may have been a mistake with Amazon’s mailing as some customers have reported receiving their games up to 4 days early in regard to the Grand Theft Auto V release. This may be an innocent error caused by unpredictable shipping carriers bringing the game ahead of time. Think about this, if Amazon gave you a release date shipping guarantee and their carrier for ‘Region A’ estimated that the delivery would take X days so Amazon sent it, the carrier may have ended up accomplishing that before the weekend broke therefore causing the large discrepancy.

Due to the game getting pirated on x360 via Torrent downloaders, people who received the game early should definitely not play it while signed in online, just in case their account and home IP address gets banned. It’s likely that we won’t hear about this again and gamers will never know exactly what went wrong in the shipping of GTA V to a small number of customers since Rockstar Games and Amazon are massive businesses with an amicable partnership, this will likely be settled in private whether or not it includes the fines sometimes placed on retailers by publishers for breaking ‘Street Dates’. Check out our extensive GTA V Section for more info about the game releasing tomorrow!

PlayStation Vita Outsells Wii U

Just over 9,600 sales last week for the Nintendo Wii U puts it behind the PlayStation Vita. The home console is causing confusion in the consumer market where potential customers expect that this product offers the Wii experience at home and on the go.

When sales people are forced to deny this feature, as it isn’t the intended purpose of the Wii U, the appeal is lost and so is the sale. PlayStation has done a much better job of establishing what its brand does at home and on the go and how you can use the PlayStation Vita in conjunction with the PS3 and upcoming PS4 to play your favorite PlayStation franchises on the go, and more.

Whether this dip in sales is just a trend or will remain the situation is unclear at this time. There is currently plans being highly publicized and officially confirmed that Nintendo will soon release a Mini Wii. After this final attempt to spark interest in new hardware, Nintendo will have to be patient before making any more moves in the video game hardware manufacturing industry.
