E3 09: Sony touts acne as a next-gen game feature

I've heard of bump mapping, but this is ridiculous.

Sony let us know that only the PS3 has the power to render detail so fine that the characters even have acne. We had the privilege of seeing the amazing Heavy Rain up close, but maybe this was particular close up was too close for comfort. We're talking whole-screen face here.

"He's got acne. I don't think acne on an actor in a game ever before," Sony says of Heavy Rain character Norman Jaden.

Scars are old. Pores are so last year. Acne is where it's at, according to Sony. Microsoft, where's your acne at?

Look forward to our full video interview and preview of Heavy Rain soon.
