A new Unreal Engine 4 demo called Infiltrator from Epic.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr2oHPSJ0m8

Running real-time on a single GTX 680.

Looks awesome, if only a little grey!

Very impressive, maybe we'll see a game like it in ten years.

I don't think we have seen a console game yet that lived up to the UE3 tech demos. Remember "meat cube"

Is there any gameplay footage or is this just one big long CGI?

It's a heavily scripted and optimised tech demo that no game will ever come close to matching.

I do find these rather pointless in all honesty, at least the demo of frostbite 3 was actual ingame footage of a real game.

All games are CGI.

If you mean a render - it isn't it is all in-engine.

It is technically a game. It is made with the engine and running in-engine.

It is scripted as Gormond mentions, but there is no reason why it couldn't be a game.

It just wouldn't be a very good one, as it wouldn't have a massive environment whilst sustaining that level of detail, only have about 5 people on screen at once ever etc.

Its in game engine, rather than pre-rendered. It is obviously rendered, otherwise you wouldn't see anything.

I remember people said the PS3 would "never" be able to produce a game that matched up to the Killzone 2 demo.

Not only did they match it with Killzone 2, they surpassed it with the likes of Uncharted 2 and God Of War III. Heck, God Of War III looks nearly as good as some of the next-gen demos we've seen already.

Don't underestimate what good developers can do with time and money.

Exactly. Back when the PS3 launched in November 2006 (and moreso by EU launch in March 2007), people were saying that the PS3 had already been surpassed graphically by the GeForce 512MB 8800GT (G92) yet here we are in 2013 and there are games that can barely run on the 8800GT (Crysis 3) or where the 8800GT (or GeForce 8 Series) is classed as minimum spec (Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider) but can run perfectly well on the PS3s GeForce 7 Series RSX. That is one of the benefits of working with and optimising for static hardware.

In another 7 years there will be games that will run perfectly well on the PS4 but will list the GTX 600 Series as minimum spec.
