Real vs Virtual

Has next-gen tech brought perfect likenesses to gaming? We run the comparisons to find out

Photorealistic visuals have been a goal for developers since the beginning of time. Or thereabouts. So with so much effort being put towards replicating realism, you'd have thought that the new crop of super-powered hi-def consoles would finally make it possible for us to enjoy a blurring of the line between reality and virtuality. But are we?

In a bid to find out, we've gathered together some of the most famous faces to ever cross the digital divide. Then we've made lovely little images comparing their real world mug with the in-game counterpart. And, just in case you struggle to tell the difference, we've even labelled them up. Click through our comparisons and decide for yourself if gaming has finally reached the graphical Holy Grail.
