I guess they gotta return the favor when MS promoted Killzone on their Facebook page.

This is stupid, espeically since Driveclub looks much, much better than Forza.

Reminds me of some Microsoft page that advertised XboxOne with a Killzone screenshot.
Edit: Apparantly I'm not the only one.

Using Forza screen shots is actually doing the game a disservice.

Sony Middle East graphically under selling their title lol. Not that the F5 shot used looks bad, it looks fantastic. But DriveClub looks a lot better.

They could use something like this instead.

If you search "DriveClub" in Google image search, the third image you get is that Forza image. Still pretty dumb.

That picture comes from a article called: next-gen face off: Forza 5 vs. DriveClub.

It was when they mistook Spider-Man for Spawn. It was like someone mistaking Superman for The Sentry. If you don't know who the Sentry is, that's the point.

it's pretty easy mistake to make. there's not much telltale variation visually between games in the same generation trying to realistically capture real cars and real roads.

Oops. This reminds me of the launch period where Microsoft's FB used an image of Killzone SF in it's game line up album. Make's you wonder who is actually running these sites and if they even care about gaming or follow the games they are meant to be promoting.

The image they chose is the third image when you Google "Driveclub". That's how companies get images for Facebook these days.

Beaten: Where's that BBC image with the Halo trust logo?

It is really stupid. You'd think they have like a company FTP server where they can go to get stuff like this, but instead they are using freakin Google image search.
