NBA2K15’s face scanning has gone hilariously wrong

2 min read


Sports games have featured face scanning tech in some way for nearly two generations. Since the advent of the webcam, game developers have sought to bring players actual likenesses into games. It makes sense for a sports fan; being able to play as you is appealing. You’d imagine though, with the new, higher fidelity cameras available, that it’d be a seamless, working process by now. You’d be wrong.

NBA2K15 is the latest game to feature facial scanning tech, allowing you to be in the game. Or at least, some sort of creepy, horribly disfigured version of you.











This the stuff of nightmares.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
