 :o According to the in-game timer in the vid it's not sped up but... good lord. I have to assume the video being recorded at only 30fps means we don't see everything he sees - in other words the pieces falling from the top. In the vid they just sort of appear at the bottom, lol. I'm guessing he might just be keeping an eye on the next pieces coming and have a mental picture of where the pieces are going, aided by peripheral, so he doesn't have to keep looking back and forth. But yeah, wow.

There is no way that play is in real time - otherwise it is in fast demo mode.

Not only are the pieces not visible when they fall but a keyboard/mouse (or any other input device) is simply not responsive enough to accurately rotate and move the pieces that quickly.

Half way through i was like: "nah, this can't be true, this is a speeded up demo for sure". But then, i noticed that it really is the end of the game, the time makes sense, hum.. i don't know.

Right now, i'm a bit with carol: no keyboard could go that fast!
I guess this is that kind of thing: "see it to believe it". I'd believe it if i saw a real guy on a real computer next to me.

(even if it's speeded up, that guy plays tetris a lot better than i do ;) )
