Supposed Heavy Rain pics give sneak peek at new characters

We're not entirely sure if these new images of Heavy Rain are real assets from the game, but they do look eerily similar to what we've seen of it before. Are these photos part of an upcoming feature (or video content) in the European mag PSM3? Quite possibly, since its watermark is plastered on all the images.

If these pics do prove to be legit, then we're looking at some of the most realistic facial renders ever seen. Just look at the attention to detail. And, is that Mexican bad-ass Danny Trejo (NSFW link) as a design inspiration? (Check the image after the break.) Wow, this game just got ten times more interesting. See the rest of the images here.
