Smoke, mirrors and the next generation of video games - May. 26, 2005: "So what about the pretty pictures we all saw? Guess what... the graphics demos at those 1999 and 2000 press conferences were just as impressive (at the time) as what Sony showed off with its footage of 'Killzone' or 'Fight Night: Round 3' last Monday. Sony showed a lifelike female character from 'Ridge Racer' strutting a catwalk and winking flirtatiously at viewers when it unveiled the PS2. Early Xbox footage showed a buff woman named Raven and her hulking robot friend showing off their martial arts form. Both were amazing pieces of video, but no real-time gameplay on either machine ever lived up to that early footage."
