IN PICTURES: GAME’s midnight Grand Theft Auto V launch

The chance to own something a few hours before you could otherwise own it has always been an enticing one for gamers.

The global arrival of Grand Theft Auto V last night saw over 2,000 shops across the UK open their doors to queues of fans keen to get their hands on what could be the most successful video game of all time.

GAME opened the doors for some 320 stores, with the pictures below showing the happenings at its Stratford branch.

Tonight has been incredible,” category director Charlotte Knight stated. The gaming community has been waiting for GTA V for over five years and the turnout has been huge.

We’ve seen record pre-order numbers, Rockstar and Take 2 have created an incredible gaming experience and the reviews are giving GTA V absolutely stellar scores.

We are making history tonight and I am sure this will become the biggest entertainment launch in history. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be a part of the gaming industry and GTA V kicks off a truly epic season of gaming."
