Quickest fake ever proven to be one

Nice try, but now there are only dev kits up and running so far. It will be still half a year at least until they build an actual console that runs the games. If there already are actual Xbox 360 consoles that run software, they haven´t been around for long. So, quickest fake ever proven to be fake. Good effort, but only technically speaking.

How convenient that there is a picture of a playable REV but mysteriously no controller with which to photograph.

Falafelkid said...

Yeah, good point. I guess, anyway. What do you mean by "controller with which to photograph"???

DlphnMod said...

that extra word snuck in there without me seeing it. Thinking one thing and typing another I guess.

It is a printed picture wrapped around a box. How lame!

It looks like they just photoshoped a revolution next to a tv with Super Mario Sunshine on it. There is something strange about the photo...I don't know what it is, but there is something weird about it.

The photo definitely isn't like all the other photos we've seen. The shadows are really natural looking, not to mention the odd angle. All the other fakes have been for the most part polished, but this one looks like someone just uploaded it straight from a camera. It's the most peculiar Rev photo I've seen yet.

the tv part of the photo is probably real. that image really is on the tv. however, the photoshop part comes in where we see the actual rev unit. Still, it is a pretty good job techinically spaeking.

Hi everyone. Hi Chocula. Serious, the first actual consoles running software are half a year away or so. There are none now, not even prototypes. There´s only dev kits. That´s all. It´s 100% fake.

The LED on the Revolution looks too dull to be real anyway.

Did anyone notice what looks to be a phone sitting on top of the Revolution box? It's possible, that this is just an empty console sitting on someone's desk, and not mario 128 actually running on it.

CountChocula said...

If it is a real Revolution just sitting on some guy's desk, then, who would have access to a Revolution prototype? It probably is photoshopped, but it's pretty damn good photo shop. I've done shadowing on photoshop and it's rarely that good. Then again I'm not a professional. And even though the photo implies that this is the Rev "playing" a game, it doesn't neccesarily mean it is playing it. Personally, if I was going to show video of any game for a presentation, I would have the console there as well. Sony and Microsoft showed next-gen videos that weren't being played on their systems... Is it really that crazy that Nintendo would have videos?

Gamephoria said...

countchocula- Some good points. But some of those shading and lighting effects are too realistic to be photoshopped, but seeing how I'm not adept in that area, I can't necessarily say it wasn't photoshopped. But there does seem to be something sitting on top of the console. Look also at the tv. It's looks to be sitting in a corner, possibly at a large desk. And where would that photo of Mario come from? didn't Miyamoto say they had a few groups running a bunch of different tests for Mario 128? That is could as very well been another sunshine as well, but I doubt that the water in the picture signifies another sunshine title. Also, Mario clearly looks like the character model from a GCN game, not a next generation title. but seeing how Miyamoto also said that moving titles from a GCN hardward to revolution hardware would be achieved easily, and since the mario team is running various tests, they might be doing it still on GCN hardware, one because that's what they've been working with probably for a while, and two, obviously, they're more familiar with the GCN's structure. So I'm definitely not counting this picture out just yet. Not unless someone can trace the picture back from a source.

Some of you are really blind -_-

DUDES. Look at the Revolution. It's precisely the angle of some pictures, and the blue light is just made darker.

Buy some glasses.

blue LED is too dark... definately fake, they might have taken a picture of a black box and put some details with photoshop ;-) so the light effects looks real, because they are real ;)

DlphnMod said...

Why are u guys getting so into this picture?

Is it not enough that Revolutions do not exist yet?

It's kind of real fakafekid... on the blog where it supposedly originated from...http://theblogs.net/user/kingdea/
but i can't find it on that page...

he mentioned a trackball replacing the c-stick on july 7th... and a couple days later...ign reports iwata talking about less sticks

plus his claims are sort of depressing...not something a hype-man would do...
like revolution being similar to gamecube in layout...and it being not totally revolutionary
and graphics on par with 360

Falafelkid, are you on vacation? We need new stuff.

Falafelkid said...

Hey DlphnMod. Sort of. Went to visit my little niece, was her fourth birthday. Am back - and will post something new soon. Providing there is something new out there. I have been checking some forums from my mobile and I didn´t find anything worth posting. Well, I haven´t checked my mails yet. There may be still hope... ;P
