This is for the most part a ploy to use the deep, hidden desires of fanboys across the net for an inkling of footage on the rumored Mario game that is coming to the Revolution to gain site traffic. Still though, our desire for these photos to be real greatly outweighs our judgment and we must turn to a more biased, thoughtful audience: the internet.
All joking aside, the photo on the left really doesn't look too real, with the mushroom on the door and the portly plumber himself both looking photoshopped to death. The scan lines also look fairly suspect. In the second shot, the background looks fairly convincing, but the over-blur and rather amateurish insertion of Mario into the mix adds a bit of doubt to the validity of that shot.
What do you think?
