Of all the places in the world, it appears that copies of the hotly anticipated GTA V are available at a random game shop in Pakistan. Located in the city of Peshawar, a video of the shop owner holding copies of the latest entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise has surfaced on Facebook.
Yes, we know that’s not what the official box art looks like, but you never know with these things. It’s not the first time a game has leaked prior to the official release at a place where you’d least expect it to. In the video the shop keeper claims that he has both Region 1 and Region 2 copies available, probably explaining the different box arts. The one of the left seems to be the promo box shops usually give away with pre-orders.
We’ve asked the shop keeper to provide proof of the game being the real deal, this post will be updated if we get any.
GTA V will officially be available on September 17, 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Stay tuned for more on the game.
Update: According to what we’re hearing, the same shopkeeper leaked Black Ops 2 two weeks before it’s release date. Stay tuned for more information.
