it may be a fake, or it may not be.


anyway, if it was a fake, considering the guy who did it, would have to be somewhat good, and i doubt he would do a obvious mistake with the levitating trooper.


And the lightsabers, they throw out a gradient blur, where you can se the original textures in these ( i checked). And to fake that, is timecraving, and difficult to get the same effect. Say you copied the lightsaber from somewhere, and put it in there, the textures would be different. Its possible, but it would be difficult using the blendmodes, and there would still be traces, and getting it to look like you dident use any blend modes.

And all the other points you people have shown, all those could as easily be game glitches insteed of photo manipulation.

The only main point i saw, was that i thought the kyle model, was a bit to large for his suroundings, but maybe hes just one of those big type characters =)

its more likely to be the real thing, then what it is to be a fake.

Perhaps he was talking to the "invisible" man and this vision is all about his fear to become a jedi and is thinking of all the dangers maybe ?

One reason I think the picture is either a fake or from an earlier build is because I don't think the game would be allowed to receive a "T" (Teen) Rating if you were able to cut off enemies heads in the game....

I just meant that the thing about a game that allowed you to chop off someones head with a light saber can't get a teen rating was nonsense.

I myself think that the screen is real, and that hopefully the feature is in the gold build.

If it's not in the German version, it's not in any version. Period.

First off, my opinion is that this is an earlier build/a gag made by the team. I dont know bout u guys but I havent really seen Kyles death animation much b4 and a faker would need that. Besides, as stated before, a faker wouldnt make obvious mistakes such as the floating stormtrooper and the shadows on the flying head.

Now, as a practitioner of martial arts incorporating swords and as a die hard Star Wars fan, that picture bothers me.

Now, if the weapon had been say a broadsword or a katana or anything which uses the principle Sharp metal + Neck = Flying head. With a weapon such as the saber, however, heads shouldn´t go flying since there isn´t anything that pushes the head away. It just makes a 100% clean cut through the neck and therefore the head should just... fall off.. Kinda like Darth Mauls torso ya know? If he had hit something like a diamond cube however, it is understandable if the cube flies as the saber cant make clean cuts through everything, watch ep 1 to see that.

ARGH I ACTUALLY TOLD SOME1 TO WATCH EP 1!! MUST WASH MOUTH!!! GHAAAAAAAA

PS national newspaper? ehmm pc action doesnt sound like the national newspaper DS

Nope. YOU watch ESB. Remember Luke chopping that Darth Vader/Luke Skywalker thingies head off? It didn't just stand on top Vader's/Luke's body, it flew off like in that screenshot.

Well, as stated in the post, what I said only applies to the cutting of flesh. The hard plastic (Which prolly isn´t plastic but anyways) casing surrounding Vaders skull is not flesh =)

a german solving ur puzzle =)

hi, this "screen" is taken from a pc-games-magazine here in germany(PC-Action). The mag tells it is a taken screenshot from a late beta-version they had for testing the game. Not the gold version and I suspect an american/international one, because it also tells the german version will be less violent, no dismembering of any bodyparts etc.
And YES, the screen looks shady somehow, dunno why, but it looks also awful in the magazine... ;-)
the test ended in a 91 % and they really loved it, calling it the best action-game ever so far..
