I forgive you lol

If they wanna make next gen really powerful they need to wait until 2013 or something to release new hardware. Then this demo, and more, would be possible.


Yeah, if they go with Nvidia, look at the performance per watt they'll get in 2013.

That's awesome... if consoles release in 2012 and Nvidia launches Maxwell the year after, consoles will be outdated super fast. But if they launch in 2013 with that, then it'll be awesome. A video card based in Maxwell will outperform a GTX 580 with way less power consumption. Imagine a videocard that consumes the same as the GTX 580 based on Maxwell... imagine the performance, lol.

Yes!! I forgot about that chart. If Next gen gets GPUs based on Maxwell, wow!

But that chart looks just too good, it really cannot realistically be just as fast as they show, but obviously they're confident it will be  a huge step up from current GPUs such as Fermi.

I can't wait!



Wait those screens look like any current gen PS3 game. I definitely am not ready for the next gen if this is what we have to look forward to. Nothing at all special. Not very many people I talk to are ready for the next gen. It feels like this gen is just hitting it's peak. Stronger consoles means stronger life cycle. Still have many games to look forward to in 2011 and beyond. 



Wow, looks great!  Excieted, but I hope its still a couple of years away, so the tech price comes down, and we get Avatar quality graphics in real time!

Seriously, those pictures looked amazing.



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

dude these graphics are weak.. lol..

A tiny improvement like this does not warrent a NEXT GEN.

Epic sucks now... they made a good engine that has been surpassed multiple times... and now they are gonna claim they know what the next gen will look like...

I promise they will look atleast 2 times this good lmao...



“Absolutely, we can do much more with it. I don’t know if we are even close to 50 percent of PlayStation 3’s power at this point,” said Asmussen about God of War 3.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???

of course the actual games will look better this is just a tech showcase (of tweaked current tech on high end hardware) not an artistic one. And the advancements aren't "weak" they just aren't apparent to the casual observer on a low quality video/screens. I have the demo in 1080p and it is very impressive, especially the real-time lighting, actual hair, tessalisation (displacement and morph) and best of all no clipping. Sure it doesn't look much better than the best of the current gen from a aesthetic point of view but it is probably the most photo realistic demo out now. And personally I can't wait to see what some truly talented art teams can do with the tech, just imagine what a developer like naughty dog could do with over 10x the geometry, fully real-time lighting, fully dynamic models etc.
