GTAIV Intro Leaked. Real or fake?

IT'S FAKE, I WAS RIGHT!!!
(HE WASN"T, FAGGOT)



Ok people, before you read this, watch the vid.

This looks real and fake in quite a few areas. I'll start with the real. The intro is done in true GTA fashion, with the credits, panels, and cool little song playing in the background. It showed R* and the R*North labels beforehand, as always. All the pictures used in the intro were official art. The case looked real on the front, with classic GTA panels, and on the back with the trademark six pictures, three to a row, and a paragraph in between with a completely black background. The instruction booklet looked legitimate, being a tour guide like past GTA's, and the loading screen itself looked traditional, since all GTA loading screens are just changing artwork with a white bar. There's still a problem with the loading screen, among many other things, which I'll get to.

Now, I'll state the stuff that just seems "off". The spine of the case looked pretty fake, and editing out the full opening of the case just seemed a bit fishy. That disc DEFINITELY couldn't have been the North American, since it was missing some necessary labels. It could still be European though, so I'll look into that. I doubt it's a review copy of the game, for two reasons. I don't think they would get a case like that (just speculation, correct me if I'm wrong), and a review copy would NEVER get leaked, since said reviewer would be in (for lack of a better word) deep shit. Finally, that shit loaded way too fast. I heard about 360's having the installation option if they want to (stupid cores and arcades), but that guy couldn't have installed it, unless that was his second time around playing it. But half a min. for the only load in the game (yes, R* confirmed LONG ago that the opening load is the only one) is just too ideal, and I don't buy it.

So, Real or Fake? You decide.

P.S. Forgive my lazy writing, I'm rushing this since it's pretty late.

EDIT: Found the original poster. Confirmed for UK. It's his only video and he won't make more for a pretty BS reason.

EDIT2: After re-watching the video and looking at my own evaluations, I change my mind on certain parts. The spine looks fine, and he probably edited out th opening of the case since he needed two hands and it would just look awkward. I still can't tell with the case, since I'm no expert on PAL game cases. But his failure to go farther with a BS reason still bothers me.

My Current Opinion: Fake, and always fake.

I think its real. Don't know how he got it but I buy it.

The only point I think is valid on the fake side would be the 30 sec. load time. Everything else checks out.

and josh, you can write fake all you want but you're not swaying any opinions until you back it up with some facts.

I think it may be real for the fact that there is about 4 pictures in the opening scenes ive never scene before andif you go to gta4.net it has every pic to date on the site.
