Tiger Woods Couldn't Tell Himself From Game Version

Eurogamer has the scoop.
"The new technology Electronic Arts has developed to make game characters look more lifelike is so good that Tiger Woods failed to realise he was looking at a CGI version of himself.

That's according to Glenn Entis, EA's chief visual and technical officer. Speaking at the Montréal Games Summit, Entis recounted the tale of the first time Woods was shown his new animated character, saying, "We really got no response. He just said, 'Yeah?', and it's like, 'Well, did you like it?'. His response was telling; he said, 'Well, when are you going to show me the computer graphics?'

"We figured if you can fool a guy who sees that face in the mirror every day, it's got to be working."

No Forza Motorsport 2 Until June 07

Boomtown has the unfortunate news.
"Moore explained to MTV that Too Human, Crackdown, Shadowrun and Forza Motorsport 2 were all now scheduled for a release at the end of June 2007. That's some wait then.

Meanwhile he said that Halo 3 was shaping up to be "everything people would expect to see in a next-generation version of Halo."

Question of the Day

It's Friday! What are you up to this weekend?

Well, I bought CoD 3 and GoW last night, so I'm hoping to get some good gaming time with them. Raking leaves and watching the Boys destroy the Cards. Yes, I'm making that bold prediction.
