This is not real. It is computer generated or enhanced.

It looks real enough............it fooled me to the point that something just looked slightly off.........but at first, I thought it was real till the last few minutes I saw a few flaws that could not be real in the STI's handling........and the Odyssey could not out handle the STI with AWD and as top heavy as it is over the low slung STI.......COOL AS HELL THO.........

I don't know if any of you have ever seen a chrome car in the flesh, but it is AMAZING.............

I thought it sounded too fake. During the start it sounded exactly like one time when I had a bee in the car and it was trying to get out. lol

Maybe because I've been playing games for... kind of ever... One glance and I see computer generated graphics, in a game. The weird lighting, the all too clean scenery, and the simplistic geometry kind of glaring.

Still, an honest mistake from a non gamer, I would believe it myself if I'm a non gamer... Heck, check this game out...

02:03 is the best...

It's a video based on a pre-alpha code for "Project Cars", an upcoming racing sim across platforms. It's based on the PC build which supposedly has the highest definition graphics option.

NO DOUBT I am a non gamer, I really thought it was real, enhanced at best if someone would have told me that is what it was...........And I would have went to the grave thinking; WOW! That chrome Odyssey was cool as HELL!....LOL!

Posts like this AFVM really make me question your judgement on sneak peaks you have of future Honda products...I am finally seeing why you don't mind some general Honda/Acura design missteps...I think you actually have a hard time differentiating reality from make believe! LOL...

Ha ha, that reminds me a colleague of mine.

24 years old, single, no girlfriend, get a permanent job after graduation and decides to buy his first ever car.... and the winner is A brand new JDM Odyssey !!!

Really, sometimes I feel like living in another planet, but yes, minivans are not just "a family/mom's thing" around here, they are really "cool"...

carzak..........

You have to understand, I never played a computer PS game in my life, I never saw anything like this before in my life and with todays HD cameras and 3D and digital stuff, who the hell knows how they can make things look. I have a 50 inch Plasma HD TV at my house and it's 4 years old.......my buddy has a 50 inch ultra thin TV LCD and his looks (real life film) just like that clip I posted. I was watching Star Wars the other day and it looked TOTALLY different on his TV then mine........His has this effect as if you are RIGHT THERE in the ship with Darth Vader..............and CP3O........Mine is nice, great quality, but it doesn't put you right there..........

SO, point is, I just thought it was a FILM thing, more then anything else and by my heading, I did notice that SOMETHING wasn't right.........I am not a gamer, maybe you are, so just because I can't get it the 1st time, doesn't warrant your comment........I have extraordinary knowledge in many other fields, just not computer graphics, games and spelling......LOL!............So give a brother a break, will ya!

GT5 is nice looking, but with player control and so much movement, it isn't as believable as fully controlled CGI.

It all depends on the frame of reference you have within what you are seeing. These are all generated cars, but in a few cases, nothing tells your brain it is not metal and glass you are looking at.
