Now this is something I can't wait to get my hands on to try out.

This video really shows how dull\dim last-gen lighting\rendering looks.

Once "people start seeing better" (longing for big Ps in face prevents noticing OBVIOUS AF problems, etc.), the difference in last-gen lighting\rendering will become OBVIOUS... much to the detriment of then currently being released games still using last-gen rendering.

Notice the way that everything dark in the video doesn't reflect light in a way that reveals more of the complexity. An inCREDIBLE amount of REALism is lost that causes "depressingdimballs" fLAMER rather than "amazeballs" FANtastic.

I expect that better lighting\rendering will be highly demanded, especially since it makes far more difference than 900P versus 1080P.

900P with better lighting is EXTRAORDINARILY better than 1080P without... not only in how BRILLIANT it is not being dull\dim... in how much MORE that can actually be "scene".
