This week is a big one for video gaming fans — Grand Theft Auto 5 is set to be released on Tuesday. There’s just one problem — a bunch of people in the UK who pre-ordered the game on Amazon already have it. Game maker Rockstar North is not too pleased about the online retailer breaking the strict embargo. Michael Pachter, research analyst at Wedbush Securities, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
