The day when pixels of a video game look like an actual real-life image is finally here. Not too long ago, an avid gamer (Captcook96) posted screenshots taken from the racing video game Driveclub on Twitter. Nissan’s Twitter account quickly took notice and asked the gamer if he “took these photos” himself, to which he replied with a resounding yes – though not exactly photos as in “actual photographs”.
Jamie Brayshaw of Evolution Studios, the people behind Driveclub, asked Nissan in jest if it knew the pictures are screenshots from the game. Here’s Nissan’s reply:

To be fair, the images aren’t exactly very big to begin with, so it’s easy to make a mistake. That said, the images do look very lifelike. Brayshaw later commented that this “blunder” by Nissan is “the ultimate compliment for Driveclub.” At the rate video games’ graphics are improving, it can only mean good news for gamers – except when it comes to forking out money for new graphics card to keep up with the growth.
