Vinny In The Crowd For WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2010?

#1 Posted by PhilESkyline (874 posts) -

I noticed this why my brother played the 360 ver. of the game.  
 
I remember hearing Jeff say something about going to a WWE fight a few podcast ago. 
 
These are the best shots I could find. If anyone has the game play it and tell me he doesn't look like Vinny 
 
P.S. My intention is not to be disrespectful at all.

Didn't they have the thing at a preview event where they took a picture of game journalists and said they might put them in the game? Didn't Jeff mention that in the Quick Look?

I think the 3rd shot looks a lot like him.

I am almost sure it's Vinny in the crowd I noticed him when playing the game yesterday with a friend.

They mentioned something about this on the quick look.  At some wrestling event they scanned in a bunch of people to try and get the look right.  I assume those who agreed to it signed their likeness away.

It's good to see I'm not the only one who has ever created The Hulk as a character in a Smackdown game.

If you go to Highlight Reel, and set the camera to free, you can go right up to the crowd faces...
 
And yes, 100%, it's Vinny, at certain angles, particularly the side, you can see the face texture a little flatter, and you can see thats a photo of Vinny, got the eyes, got the mouth, everything. 
 
Here's pictures! Enjoy! (please forgive my SD TV)
 



 
 
 
 Vinny enjoying the show there
 
No Jeff in there sadly.
