As some of you may have spotted, a wily YouTuber is circulating what claims to be the Grand Theft Auto IV introduction movie, but Eurogamer can confirm that it's a fake.

Rockstar has not officially commented on the "leak", but then it doesn't have to; we've watched the GTA IV intro and it's nothing like that.

We won't spoil anything for you, but the real movie, set in-game, is a very clever composition, introducing you to Niko Belic and Liberty City without being brash about it, and the way the opening credits are integrated is sure to raise a smile.

For more on what GTA IV is actually like, watch out for our hands-on impressions in the very near future.
