Over in San Francisco, GDC continues to rumble along with its usual trickle of interesting titbits of information. In this instance, it’s the latest show of force from Quantic Dream. The Heavy Rain developers aren’t shy of showing off some amazing tech demos, anyone that remembers the renders and target videos for the detective thriller will remember.
This seven minute demo, entitled “Kara”, is running in real time on a PlayStation 3 and looks incredible. Of course, the fact that they can make the console run a quick demo like this is no indication that it could cope with this sort of output for a full game but we can dream, right?
David Cage has told Eurogamer that the demo was ready a year ago but is still only using about 50 per cent of the capabilities of the engine. It has also been confirmed that the next Quantic Dream game will be a Sony exclusive, although we’ll have to wait a while for more details of that.
