Some photos of an alleged Xbox 360 build of GTA V are making the rounds today, and at first glance they're actually pretty good. However, moving on to some light analysis we can soon see they are quite likely to be fakes. I am not going to link to the source website because they are virtually unheard of and in all likelihood they were created as a publicity stunt, they have even since updated their post to point out they are likely fake anyway.

Here are the images in question (click for full size):

As you can see, the images appear to show an Xbox 360 build of the game. The menus seem to lack a bit of polish, and we can see a thinner variant of the Helvetica typeface is being used (possibly deliberate but may be an error), but what would seem like the first somewhat obvious sign of fakery is that the dollar sign is on the wrong side of the number.
Also, it is strange to see the "Stats" option greyed out. This doesn't make sense to us as these are viewable at any time in every GTA game.
As for the map itself, in our opinion there looks to be far too much countryside, approximately two thirds of the map if you look at how much physical space it takes up.

There's probably a number of other things we're missing here. But our immediate opinion is most certainly fake.

Do you agree they are fake? Or do you think they could actually be real? Let us know in the comments, and of course if you've found anything in the images that proves they are real/fake. We'll update this post if we get any other interesting information regarding these.

Rockstar wasn't dumb enough to even leak the fact that GTA V took place in LS, doubt they would let some pictures slip...

So yeah, most likely fake.

It's obviously fake. Look at the character model. It's the same one from EFLC's TBoGT (Practice Swing)

I was thinking it was the PS3 version... Well, the map icons and graphics are too old school, harkening back to PS2 Era map, and not likely as such,. The other noted imperfection is the reverse dollar sigh, I could see it being done that way just for formatting of the counter, since CHANGE won't be important as a place marker

I have seen this map in other websites, they were saying it was a remodded map of IV.

Fake. The pause menu is too similar to GTA IV's one. Also, the "city" is mostly countryside.

Yeah, I agree with you. I gotta give him credit for the great photoshopping he/she did. These images are really bright and clear compared to other fake GTA V screenshots I saw on the internet.

Don't worry about the small island. It is okay for the city to have a small island. GTA III (Portland Rock), GTA Vice City (Starfish Island and Prawn Island) and GTA IV (Happiness Island, Charge Island, Colony Island) all had small islands in their maps. Just because the map has a small island doesn't necessarily mean the map is fake.
