Specifically the photographs of mountains Sony keeps sending out to illustrate Gran Turismo "HD".

Gran Turismo 'HD'

That's definitely just a photograph of a mountain. It's not really impressive that PS3 can display photographs. You can get 1080p photographs off Google, and most phones can display photographs these days.

Sony Picture and Fax Viewer 3.0

Philips CDi could display photographs as backgrounds. So could the MEGA CD. This is not clever.

Adobe Mountain Viewer 7.0 CS Edition

You can see the join.

$600 Picture Book

Sony certainly faces its own 'Everest' in making people believe any of the shit it churns out these days.

Sony expects us to be impressed by Singstar's ability to play back music.

I really hope they are real and they jizzed 20,0000,000 polys modelling them and another 2,000,000 on the sole yak that is at the top of the mountain thats the size of a pixel... which explains why the game looks so shite.

Who gives a fuck. The pre-rednered mountains actually look quite nice.

/isn't going to be buying a PS3.

Bah where's an edit function when you need one.

God forbid I interrupt the Sony-slagfest long enough to point out that the first two shots are obviously not pre-rendered, but I didn't think the comedy value was high enough to resist the urge.

It's obvious to the eye that has brains that it's the same mountain range, and the angle of the lower shot indicates that the mountains are definitely 3-dimensional (check the angle on the outcrop to the left of the sharp-angled cliff on the far right.

For all I know, the mountains are only made up of 12 polygons with super high-res textures... but since some textures are in fact photographs, you're right in a way.

Right... Just not funny.

It's not meant to be funny. Sony have issued these shots, which are supposed to reflect the quality of the new Gran Turismo.

It's boring really. I never make judgments until I have the real thing on my tv.

I do enjoy seeing the funny things Sony get-up-to though!
