Thereโ€™s a lot of confusion around what the next gen is really going to bring to gamers as virtually everyone is pretty happy with the quality of graphics in the current gen games and there really isnโ€™t much room available for another huge leap in graphical technology.

A few weeks ago Darryn posted an article on the amazing hair effects of the next gen processors and now Iโ€™ve stumbled across one of the most impressive water/liquid demo videos Iโ€™ve ever seen.

If these are the sorts of water physics we can expect to see in the next generation of titles then I may finally start enjoying water levels again in games. As long as I can stay above the water.

By far the most impressive thing for me was how the aquarium emptied. It looked so natural, especially when it changed direction with new holes. Granted the glass physics need some work but that can be left to another team.

So what do you think, would water physics like this make a real surfing game a true possibility?

            Heresy!! Heresy!!! Everybody knows that the great Kifflom created everything. Except gingers they spawned from Emporer Kraff’s penis cheese.

    OK… For the first time a tiny spark of excitement ignited for the next gen. But back in 2005 when we started seeing bull shots of the Unreal engine and I had a game boner 24/7, the industry was far more healthier than it is now.

    Just who is going to be able to afford to make games on the next gen machines without making games 2hours long and only using up to 1gig of RAM? When we have had the worst gen for studio failures.

      Better with Kinect I am sure. That way the overly obese kid in this picture doesn’t need to reply using any higher brain functions, when asked how big he wants his pizza he just has to muster up enough strength to indicate ‘thisss biiiiig’ before crashing back into a heap. You can also share the cheese that you are eating across facebook, because I am sure every fucking mate of yours wants to know what Monday special you are munching on…

    Wow, damn nice looking. I wonder what generation will ACTUALLY use that? The one where Nintendo has a ‘wiiFu, a full body suit you strap yourself into so you can finally sleep with a My Little Pony in fully rendered 3D? #can’twait

    These guys are working on a remake of Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer.

    Keep an eye out and maybe do a review on release?
