A day after the PAL version of the game was illegally released on torrent sites comes word that an NTSC version of Grand Theft Auto IV has made it online. Clocking in at a whopping 7.9 GB, the game has been released by a group calling themselves 101 and, at the time of this story, over 25,000 copies were in the process of being leeched.

Like yesterday's claim we're unable to verify if this is the real deal, we've pre-ordered thank you very much, and with only a few days to go before April 29 we'd recommend you wait on a retail copy before doing anything illegal. Unless you're down for taking a chance on being shunned from Xbox Live and generally hated by everyone. It's Grand Theft Auto IV. Go buy it.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in]
