Quantic Dream's PS4 tech demo is the greatest facial animation gaming's ever seen

Quantic Dream didn't have a PlayStation 4 game ready to show at Sony's PlayStation Meeting, but the studio still astounded with a tech demo that left PSU editors and gaming press at large positively floored.

In the demo below, studio founder and Co-CEO David Cage demonstrates a level of photorealistic facial animation that shames any wannabe competition. We don't know this old man's story, but we certainly feel a sense of fatigue, world-weary pessimism, and contemplative wisdom from the way his brow wrinkles and his eyes sadly plea for... something.

What's your take on Quantic Dream's PS4 tech? What are you hoping to see in the studio's first next-gen game?
