Superbowl prediction

This page predicts that the Panthers will beat the Patriots, based on the performance of a video game duel held Wednesday. It will be interesting to see if this prediction technique can maintain its perfect record for 9 straight years.

As video game simulations of sports get more and more realistic, can the video games amass enough data to start accurately predicting how real games will play out? I would tend to think not, because the games would have trouble handling things like injuries to key players during a game. But maybe that kind of thing washes out statistically.
