The lights are on
This is what you can expect out of next-gen console hardware. Welcome to the future.
Tech publication Wired has obtained a fresh set of screens from the graphics engine Epic Games is preparing for the next round of consoles, as well as interviews with Epic technology master and co-founder Tim Sweeney and design director Cliff Bleszinski.
"There is a huge responsibility on the shoulders of our engine team and our studio to drag this industry into the next generation," Bleszinski told Wired. "It is up to Epic, and Tim Sweeney in particular, to motivate Sony and Microsoft not to phone in what these next consoles are going to be. It needs to be a quantum leap. They need to damn near render Avatar in real time, because I want it and gamers want it—even if they don’t know they want it."
Stay tuned for the July issue of Game Informer, coming to a mailbox (or inbox) near you as E3 kicks off next month, where we drop some next-gen details of our own.

Awesome. I can't wait to see what they've got up their sleeve.
Looks good for the start of next-gen. I'll like to see it in motion
Lookin Good! Would love to play some Fantasy RPG's run with this!
untill i can see this in see this in motion, ill hold my thoughts
I wonder if GTA V will be for next-gen. I would be so upset
Epic is like a broken record; graphics, graphics, graphics. Do they ever consider anything else in game design? How good does Unreal's impressive palette of brown have to look, before it looks good enough? A complete repeat of this gen, with better facial animations is not what I consider next gen.
all the shots look great except for the solar system one, it looks like the stand isnt on the ground
