A presumably fake copy of Grand Theft Auto V has just been spotted in Shanghai, showing off a rather impressive possible cover for the upcoming open world game.

Without a doubt one of the biggest titles to appear this year is Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games.

While it's set to appear in spring for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, already plenty of new details, posters, and artwork are being leaked on the web.

Now, a Reddit user from Shanghai has posted a picture, which you can find above, that shows a retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V on sale in one of the city's many game stores, right alongside Max Payne 3 and other PC or Mac software.

While it's more than possible that the copy is a fake, other Shanghai residents have chimed in saying that they were able to get actual retail games weeks ahead of the actual release by visiting such stores.

The actual user, however, was unable to purchase the game, so it's unclear whether it's fake or if it's actually real, although you should take it with a huge grain of salt.
