It wasn't pretty, but it was the 'real' GTA IV intro [update]

not a test...
Update: Yikes! Video's been yanked. (Additional gameplay footage still standing ... for now. Nope, it's now gone too!)

Maybe proof is all you want. Or maybe it's a dirty, tainted fix you're after. Whatever the case, Grand Theft Auto IV is real -- like, "really, really real" -- and now in the hands of a few (probably not yours). If you prefer to take your first impression from the outside looking in, press 'Play' now.

Skip past the break for some additional gameplay footage.
