Uncanny Valley Girl

Steve Lacey points us to this wired article, the first of what I would imagine will be many articles about next-gen consoles and the "uncanny valley". I do like the author's take on it though:

"My hat is off to whoever designed the new King Kong game for the Xbox 360, because they've crafted a genuinely horrific monster. When it first lurched out of the mysterious tropical cave and fixed its cadaverous eyes on me, I could barely look at the monstrosity.

"I'm speaking, of course, of Naomi Watts. "
