Square's Luminous engine is absolutely stunning, new screens show off PS4's power

If nothing else, the Agni's Philosophy tech demo showcased by Square Enix at E3 2012 confirmed that Final Fantasy's future will be jaw-droppingly gorgeous. A set of new Luminous engine screens, detailing everything from hair dynamics to specular lighting, corroborate this fact and have me positively aching for a PS4 reveal at the PlayStation Meeting on February 20.

The images come courtesy of 4Gamer, who has also compiled a series of Square Enix PowerPoint slides over a multi-part series that breaks down the stunning technology at work. After taking a peep at the images below, drop a comment and tell us if you're impressed by the technology that will almost certainly power next-gen Final Fantasy games.
