Amazon.co.uk has delivered copies of the eagerly awaited “Grand Theft Auto 5″ (GTA5) video game ahead of the official launch on Tuesday, breaching a strict embargo set by its maker.
Some customers who had pre-ordered the title received it days before the launch day.
Rockstar North, the title’s Scottish creator, is reportedly investigating but has yet to comment publicly.
Amazon said only “a small number” of customers had been affected.
Australia’s largest video game chain has apologised after one of its Queensland stores covered its cash register in “a white powdery substance that appeared to be some form of illegal drug” at a midnight video game launch overnight.

The unorthodox promotion, on show at the EB Games Store in Southport’s Australia Fair shopping centre, was exposed by Reddit user Matt Westacott, who posted a photo of the counter to the website.
