wow I am now impressed totally, more than the trailer could ever impress me. Carmack is great at explaining stuff, should be a university professor. And I hope there is 3rd part of these videos where he demonstrates the engine.

[edit] come on guys approve this. its newsworthy.

no wonder the 360 version is goin to be 2 disk or even i got the ps3..

Didn't you hear John Carmack say that the PS3 was the lowest common denominator? He said that the PS3 was difficult to manage memory and "lagged" behind the PC and 360 in development.

Its good to see more than just the unreal engine getting tossed around this gen. I hope to see this engine used more often, it looks amazing. John Carmack definitely knows what hes talking about and if he can get a game running like that on a ps3, people are definitely going to be paying attention.

The engine looks gorgeous but like he said, the PS3 version is lagging more than the 360. I hope everything works out at the end and nothing is sacrificed from the PS3 version.

I think they are going to make sure all versions are running thru out the developement process as they intend to release to all of them. So if 360 or PS3 version has a little problem and they have to cut, it might affect all the platforms.

Then I feel really bad for PC gamers. No one deserves an abridged version of a game just because the other versions are suffering.

I think he said lagging in production... not lagging in gameplay...
