Gta Iv Available Now at Target (Not)


Somebody at Target seems to have jumped the gun just a little bit. Apparently, they’ve hung this banner in the electronics department of one of their Orlando, Florida locations stating that Grand Theft Auto IV is available now. While we’d all love for this to be true, the eagerly-anticipated game isn’t due to be released until April 29, over a month from now.

Flickr contributor Lividfiction came across the display at his local Target store, and managed to snap a couple of pictures before anyone in the department got smart enough to realize the gross inaccuracy of the signage.

GTA IV 3_2008 Release

Heck, even Target’s PS3 & Xbox 360 game reservation cards list the release date as “03/2008″. Now either somebody really screwed up here, or GTA IV is coming out much earlier than expected. I’m going with the first one.

    actually, that’s fairly easy to do if you aren’t paying attention.

    i’m the electronic specialist at my target, and that specific sign is two sided; one side says coming soon, the other says available now.
    the halo signing was the same.

    not that they should have let it slip, but, it’s not a seperate sign.

    Ah, that explains it. Maybe a sign redesign is in order.

    Excellent news!

    Hopefully people aren’t/won’t be dumb enough to get upset when they find out that GTAIV isn’t coming out till April 29th. No one seemed to care when I was there and took the photos, but going by my experience at the register I’m sure some customer will raise hell about it until he gets a 20% discount or something like that.
