Gamers queue late into the night for copies of GTA V

Grand Theft Auto

Thousands of gamers have been getting their first look at Grand Theft Auto V after it went on sale at midnight.

It's been reported Amazon delivered copies of the video game ahead of the official launch breaching a strict embargo set by the game's maker.

Rockstar North, the Scottish creator, is reportedly investigating. Amazon was yesterday unavailable for comment.

Meanwhile, late last night there were long queues outside gaming shops.

What do you think of the game? Were you up all night or have taken the day off?

"Fantastic. The extra few months they spent on it worked. The scale of it is mind blowing."

"Queues over 300 people long in Wolverhampton. People were getting mugged over a copy. Police everywhere."

"Picked game up in Braintree last night. Fair play to them [shop] for organising a queue for over 100 people and also handing out sweets and a free raffle. Two days off to play this."
