Why people are seeing reflections in the new video

What is happening is similar to psychoacoustics, whereas when you have a rhythm in your mind (in this case, an image), your brain tries to imprint it onto other audio because you are TRYING to hear it (in this case you are TRYING to see Crash or whomever).

 

What this is called though is The Gestalt Effect.

 

So you have various images in your brain, and when you see something, you try and piece everything together with whatever you have in yor brain. Be it something from a long time ago (such as certain paterns) or something you see everyday (a hat). In this case, someone implanted the image of Crash into your surface level cognition and when you see that image, you are specifically looking for it, so your brain places in the image, instead of what is actually there (just a normal plain reflection of a window or whatever). 

 

This is why we can recognize things, and this is how memories over the years get slightly warped or manipulated.

 

Can we please just drop it and go back to, you know, talking about PLAYSTATION ALL STARS!

I have studied psychology and agree with you but I too can see the reflections. The most viewable is snake and Omar did say that there was a possibility of adding characters to the final 20. He just said stay tuned. Perhaps they are on the game, perhaps they aren't. People should speculate and assume what they want. They do have the right to do that. The Internet is a place to post things you believe in and such. They are talking about PSASBR. It's not like they are talking about halo on these forums. It may sound I'm being rude but I'm not. I'm just giving out my opinion. Plus if you don't believe in the theory then why must you comment and make threads about it. Let people think what they want. It's not like their forcing us to believe.

Am I the only one who thinks the reflection is actually the camera guy?

Spoken like a true artist. at my institution in the first class i took out first chapter was on gestalt (although more than this, but this idea is a big part of gestalt in general)

Had he not said "look, you can see crashes face", slim to no people would have said they had.
