Grand Theft Auto IV’s official release date is Tuesday, April 29th, 2008. You can head down to your local video gaming store at midnight and get your greasy little fingers on a copy of the most anticipated game of the year.
But, if you feel like you can’t wait that long… there is another option, only available to those who’ve hacked their Xbox 360’s firmware. Apparently, someone in the supply chain got their sticky little fingers on a copy about a week before the release date and ripped it, uploading it to various Torrent sites.
If you take a look at the Pirate Bay, they’ve even changed their logo to celebrate… almost like an “early release” party. And from the comments going around, the game is everything it’s been hyped up to be.
So, if you’re hankering for a taste of GTA IV, and you just can’t wait for Tuesday, there are places you can go. The only problem is that you might want to avoid playing on Xbox Live before Tuesday, as, obviously, the game hasn’t actually been released yet!! You wouldn’t want to get banned for life.
