The "coming winter 2009" release date at the end of this Max Payne 3 teaser video—slick enough to be professionally made, we think—may not be accurate, but the rest of this bullet-filled clip is right on point.

That time code running in the bottom left leads us to believe that this brief teaser wasn't quite ready for prime time—Rockstar Games officially has no comment on the authenticity of the thing—but it certainly looks like something we could see replaying over and over and over again. Sharp as a tack, no matter how you may feel about the newer, balder, paunchier Max.

Max Payne 3 is still scheduled to hit the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime in the first half of 2010 as far as we know.
