If this is the visual future of gaming, I don’t want to be a part of it. j/k! ha ha ha…
As we enter into the new next-generation era of consoles we’re going to see companies fight left and right to become the dominate engine. Both Epic Games and Square Enix released the following tech demo videos during E3 2012.
Basically Square has made an engine that in theory will make gameplay look just as good as their pre-rendered cutscenes. Of course Epic’s engine looks just as good. It’s nearly impossible to figure out which one is better by simply watching these videos, but in the end we the gamers all win by receiving amazing visuals so who cares which engine is better.
