British newspaper mistakes Deus Ex for real life

The Sun mistakes Deus Ex for real life.

The Sun mistakes Deus Ex for real life.

A British Newspaper known as The Sun has recently run an interesting article. This article claims that cybernetic implants have been in use since 2009. They go on to state that a movie maker had his glass eye replaced with a camera, and that cybernetic eyes have been developed by one Sarif Industries.

Gamers who read the article will likely catch the mistakes, but others may not. Sarif Industries, the “US firm” that the article mentions in this new edition of the paper, is not a real company. It is a ficitional company in the popular game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

In addition, the eyeball image posted in the newspaper is also from the game. That said, Rob Spence and Carol Kasyjanski are indeed real.

It is possible that the end of the article may be true, our grandkids could indeed see such technology commonplace. But that won’t be happening anytime soon, as the writers of this paper are sure to find out soon enough.

What do you think of the paper’s article?
