no wait, omg this is the Ps3 right, oh man It's gonna take at least 2-3 to see this awesome tech on at least 10 games. Oh well.
I'll guess I have to "wait beyond".

Say what it is also on the Xbox360, but there's a virus that is kiling 360's everywhere, have they found a cure yet.?

Also Epic is going to be using this in Unreal Engine 3.

Geomerics Joins Epics IPP
Geomerics today announced that it has signed up to Epic's Integrated Partners Program and will be commencing work incorporating their Enlighten Technology into Unreal Engine 3.

Geomerics is today proud to announce that they have joined Epic Games’ Integrated Partners Program for Unreal® Engine 3. Enlighten will now be fully integrated into Unreal Engine 3 and will be available for licensing directly from Geomerics.

Epic Games has established the Integrated Partners Program (IPP) for the purposes of having a formal business relationship with selected companies making cross-platform technologies which integrate with, and are complementary to, Unreal® Engine 3. Under the IPP program Epic provides continuous Unreal Engine 3 source code access and full technical support to IPP members. Companies who join the IPP agree to provide a high level of technical support for UE3 licensees through Epic’s established support channels, keep their implementations up-to-date with the latest UE3 versions, and work with Epic on potential promotional and co-marketing efforts. The IPP program will make it easier for Unreal Engine 3 licensees to incorporate 3rd party middleware solutions from IPP vendors into their games.

“We are very excited to be integrating our Enlighten technology into Unreal Engine 3” said Julian Davis, CTO of Geomerics. “The combination of our cutting edge lighting middleware and the powerhouse that is Unreal Engine 3 will be a fantastic thing for all game developers.”

“It is great to have Geomerics on board for the Integrated Partners Program.” said Mark Rein, Vice President, Epic Games, Inc. “We look forward to seeing how their customers take advantage of the integration between their lighting technology and Unreal® Engine 3”.

This is good news for all gamers!
