    These are the guys who made The Nomad Soul all those years back, and Fahrenheit..should be interesting. It seems it's coming to next-gen consoles and PC, but they'll be showing it at Sony's booth on PS3.

    Interesting this title seems to have alot of support from Sony, yet still being multiplatform. Anyways, It sounds like this demo could be some pretty impressive stuff, cant wait to see it.

    Ohh... I might try to dig out some info about that, if I have some time during the next weeks.
    Achieving PRT effect by using a Spheical Harmonic is quite common.

    I'm impressed! Hopefully they'll release footage also.

    edit - here's a sampling, just because it looks so good!

    Also, IGN had a look at it - more tech demo than game at the moment, but still..

    Looks great, Is this going to be made into a game, or just a tech demo or middleware?
    I'm not sure which is more impressive, this, or EA's tiger woods demo?

    seems to be a breif website about the actor w/ video's and shots.

    It's a game, I believe. They're just showing off their engine with this though.

    That first picture of the girl looks bloddy realistic. The kitchen scene was also nice.

    Ehh.. Off topic, sorry... Anybody know how it's decided what developer gets to showcase what games for what system when they are multi-platform anyway?

    Or is it even up to the developer? Is it between the publisher and the console maker?

    Not sure, but it was playable/interactive at Sony's booth, apparently. Haven't seen impressions yet though.

    Very very cool. I like the style, not so over-the-top as most games out there.

    Hey Laa-Yosh is this game doing things that have not been thought possible for next-gen systems technically? If so can you explain?
