Default Sony uses PGR3 screenshots to promote GTHD. Oops.

Major Nelson took a screenshot

This is just funny as hell.

Not everyone is actually into gaming, they probably hired an outside web developer and he went out and looked for images not caring for their source.

I agree. Some marketing or html editing firm must have used images from the wrong source. It looks like Sony promptly changed the image once this was discovered. You have to admit though... it's pretty funny and a bit embarrassing on Sony's part. These guys just can't catch a break lately!
