A British Success Story

I'm not into video games but it's good to see a British success in the game 'Grand Theft Auto' which has been released today.

I think we're on the same wavelength with this one!
Something BRITISH and technological that puts the UK back at the forefront of something can only be very good news!
We need more development in the UK.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

From that link
Quote
A report in the Scotsman newspaper suggests the development costs for GTA5 could be in the region of £170m ($265m; 203m euros), making it one of the most expensive video games ever made.
The report anticipates that GTA5 could rake in £1bn in sales over its lifetime.
Such speculation has helped push the share price of Rockstar's US owner, Take-Two Interactive Software, up by 65% over the past year.

I did and if it was delivered yesterday then the postal service got it wrong again and someone in the area has an early Christmas present.

Pre-ordered and recieved from Amazon at £34.99   Now it's £38, down from £56.
When it gets down to the low 30's I'll order a copy for myself.

Yes I heard that. Unbelievable isn't it Sad
The game, however, is selling really well.
