From the creators of the Unreal Tournament and Gears of War series, Epic Games gives a sneak speak into the future of next-generation, console graphics. Epic will set the pace for a new era of realistic graphics in video games.

I still enjoy and take to heart 8-bit gaming and the classics like Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Zelda, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, etc. Even these classics have seen massive overhauls to their graphics.

What do you think about the next generation of console graphics?

    I have never really been into graphics, I play the game for the gameplay/storyline but I think it is simply amazing how much the graphics have improved over the past decade. They are simply breathtaking and the next-gen graphics take it to another level.

    It looks so real...and at least now it won't be so creepy when I tell people that I think a video game character is hot.

    I love advancing graphics and stuff, but for certain games i'll stick to what i know. Pokemon, for example. I am forever in love with Emerald/saphire/ruby generation, and can't play past that really.

    Could be that developers will still find a way to squeeze more power out of the current consoles. There is no talk yet from any of the big names on a new round of console wars.

    Alright, I like any graphics. Yeah, the next gen graphics look nice but from that video it just looked like a pre-rendered cutscene which already has good graphics. I'm really not that interested in graphics, I just want the game to be fun.

    That's the trick; the scene was was being rendered and lit live. Regardless, I agree with the sentiment that gameplay will always trump graphics, but they are not always exclusive of one another.

    Well holy S@&%! I am now!

    Video games, as a genre, have yet to fully get their "art form" to a point where they can produce something that truly provides that transcendendant sensation that art provides. With this technology, I think we'll be seeing the video game's "Citizen Kane" soon enough...

    I'm a die hard for the original Unreal and UT99. Something was lost, for me, with the later UTs.

    Amazing stuff for 1998...

    I have this game, its what got me into Unreal. UT is the best shooter available in my opinion. doesn't matter what version you like best. I liked UT2004 better than UT99 but i love the graphics in UT3.

    I'm on the fence. I enjoy the scenes in newer games, and they are going to need a good storyline to keep me going. I think the tech demo is just an amazing piece of work; kudos to the Epic team for a brilliant feat of software.

    As well, a lot of oldschool games aged well, and it helps there was a lot more focus on storyline during those times.

    The stuff being rendered on the fly is awesome. Movie makers are going to be creating entire movies without hiring any actors other than voice. Noe cameras will be necessary. 60 or 70 people will work for a year and release a movie every bit as good as one done with hundreds of millions of dollars. Only this one will cost 20 million instead.

    Although I'm also hoping that they don't skimp on gameplay. It's a trend of recent games to do that, of late.

    Its amazing how much the game world has changed, just since I've been alive! I'm exited for the new 3DS, and I really liked Xbox Kinnect although it has a few kinks to be worked out. I think scary games will make me jump more than I already do with better graphics!

    When I first became fascinated with video games, I was serving onboard an aircraft carrier in the navy. Working on the ship, there are a lot of constraints to being able to walking around and exploring what's out there. In that kind of repressive physical environment, those early video games were an incredible release and an escape from reality. Even today when I play some of those early games, I can still feel the buzz that I felt the first time I played them.

    What does that mean?
