If you're looking Grand Theft Auto Wii confirmation, this isn't it

German gaming blog, called ... uh ... Games Blog, has posted alleged image confirmation of Grand Theft Auto for the Wii. So let's look at what we have here, shall we?

The blog claims to have grabbed the images from a non-existent images directory on Rockstar's official Web site. The pictures show a man "playing" what appears to be Grand Theft Auto IV with the Wii Remote and nunchuck. He's punching! He's shooting! He's driving! He's also not actually playing anything.

First off, releasing pictures of some dude playing a game to announce a title is not Rockstar's style. When and if they ever announce a GTA game for the Wii, you can bet it will be accompanied by some slick screens and an even slicker trailer. Secondly, when Rockstar does release screens, we usually have to give a blood sample first, and then extract them from an archive that requires a password longer than this post. They're simply not just lying around in some directory. 

For fun, I contacted Rockstar for comment, but have yet to hear back. It's probably because they're laughing too hard to respond. 

In other news, this is Dead Rising 2.
