ITV Documentary in IRA Computer Blunder Mistake

Posted by TurtleGirl On September - 28 - 2011

In a recent ITV documentary into Colonel Gaddhafi’s support of the IRA. A shocking video footage is taken of a helicopter being shot down by using weapons allegedly supplied by him. For a brief moment, you’re watching the video thinking how bad it is and how could ITV show such a shocking video, but then you realize it’s actually ARMA II.
 

Yup that’s right, ITV messed up big time. PC gamer received a message about the news update on the situtation.
 
We’ve been in touch with Bohemia Interactive’s CEO, Marek Spanel. He tells us that Bohemia weren’t approached by ITV for permission to use the footage, and had no idea that Arma 2 was appearing in a war documentary on British TV. Understandably, they’re quite surprised. “We are going to try to get some explanation from ITV how this could have happenned,” says Spanel.
 

“Sometimes creativity and realism in our games lead into crazy results and this is one of such example. I just briefly watched the entire documentary and I still can not believe it as it is overall very serious and lenghtly feature,” he adds.
 

“We are surprised our games apparently may look real enough to some users already that they can not tell it is not real life footage.”
