The lack of any new media for this game makes me sad. But yes, November seems very likely at this point.

They don't need a gaming event to announce a release date.

No need for event, just a trailer on TV and some people will get hyped again.

That's not the Rockstar way, they could announce the release date in 18 minutes if they wanted to.

There's TGS, but that seems a strange event to announce a GTA release at.

Yeah, Rockstar usually always does its own thing in regards to announcements, especially with the Grand Theft Auto series.

$64 for COD:Ghosts on all 4 platforms? $60 for ACIV and $80 for Infamous? Is all pricing in Australia that extortionate?

Yes, it's called Australian tax and we've tried fighting it for years but people are stupid enough to continue shelling out cash for the ridiculous prices. Though that is actually "good" pricing, usually it's $100.

No one really buys from Big W, they have barely any stock or selection. Only point would be to get the game early cause their staff ignore embargo dates.

This doesn't make sense, Big W is nationwide so how could it be nanny stated.

No. Those prices are much better than you can get elsewhere in Australia.

There's no used market in Australia? That would be a good alternative if the price is right of course.

The major problem is that there is such a huge discrepency in prices. I pre-ordered Destiny for $55 delivered from an Aussie retailer, while at EB games its $99. Anyone that actually pays EB's prices is insane, but that is close enough to 50% difference.

Big W and other store slike that normally sell games on day 1 for close to cost, as they are banking on you buying someonthing else instore with a much larger mark up.

Add to that the famous Aussie Tax that has been mentioned. GST (tax) aside, we get ripped majorly on all software.

There is but its pretty much only EB Games and JB Hifi and with the prices on used recent releases you might as well buy new.

Ok so apparently the listing was a mistake?

I don't trust this source too much but this is what they said. Anyone what to verify if this is legit -

Big W, a branch of one of the leading retailers in Australia, has issued an apology regarding the release of Rockstar’s long-awaited remaster, Grand Theft Auto V. The apology states that, while they thought GTA V will release in November, the game actually comes out in Spring 2015.

I highly doubt it's legit. Even if it's getting delayed it seems ridiculous it's getting delayed until this time next year. I mean it's spring right now. Should've went with autumn it would've been much more believable.

Yeah, whoever made up the image forgot to account for the fact that Australia is in the southern hemisphere. The game hasn't been delayed a whole year.

The game hasn't been delayed an entire year. I don't have any evidence to support this, of course, but I can say it with confidence in much the same way as I can say that you won't get hit in the head by a meteorite if you were to take a walk around the block at this very moment.

Some of those prices are crazy good. RRP for games is $120 but nobody, not even EB games would dare charge that much. EB games is standard $99 for new release. $44 for Tomb raider and $68 for Sniper elite 3 is a steal here.
