If you felt compassion or sadness or something similar while watching, then I think the demo was a success.

    If you felt nothing, you need to go watch "The Notebook".
    I thought this was obvious to everyone !!
    I think it's one of the most emotional scenes in the history of video games, as i posted before.

    I felt the same. The magic behind this video is just as much the power of the actress's performance as it is the graphics on top of it. This video, to me, is the most amazing marriage I've seen between the performance and the graphics ever.

    I just don't get what was impressive about an actress, poor lip syncing, and a narration that felt extremely bland. There's nothing real time about what I watched, and nothing I haven't already seen elsewhere in film and theater. The fact that it was narrated on top of a video game tech demo doesn't impress me at all. If they had chosen something else, something more unique and not so cheesy cliche, MAYBE I'd get what you guys are so impressed with.

    This last vid is my fav of the three



    Sony will snap these guys up before the year is through imo. What they are accomplishing is on the same level of epicness as what ND accomplished with Uncharted. Quantic Dream are passionate about making games for adults, Sony would be mental not to get them on board without a leash... It's some high caliber $#@! that they produced there.

    It maybe cheesy cliche if it was a scene from a movie,but in the world of gaming this is definitely amazing and promising.

    If you're not impressed, you're not impressed. I don't see why others are trying to convince otherwise :S

    At the end of the day it's just a tech demo, that is possibly a reflection of what kind of style their new game is going in, which is very exciting, to me

    -To the people saying they rather see a game, well, this was known for a very long to be a tech demo, I have no idea why you expected anything else lol. You will get your QD game soon, but not in the form of a tech demo-

    @Ghost - thanks for the videos, very insightful

    Exactly.. that's just my impression of THIS VIDEO. I mean, a game with a good story, etc., would definitely catch my fancy.

    Its still mo-cap, its still a performance, it's definatly better mo-cap than what we have seen from them previously, and its definatley going to drag you into cutscenes.
    Get those reacitons on the fly, from an AI, then I'd be impressed as hell.

    I imgaine verison 3 is handling the skin a biit better something like this....



    Get that level of skin detail plus mo-cap and youve got something thats pretty special.
    It's a pity all these companies cant share their tech.

    If you combined the industry talent, we'd probably have somethign really special in terms of graphics.

    I thought it was interesting until she said she thought she was alive, I kinda believed her and felt for her, it was touching.
    I would love a game were I had to protect her.

    I was so impressed with this that I'm getting heavy rain next time I go to EB games. Quantic seems to really know how to do narrative

    I just noticed.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.”

    I guess Next-Gen will be a graphical leap after all.

    I don't consider myself too much of a sucker, but I liked everything about the tech demo. Is it the best looking thing? Probably not. Was the narration a cop out? I dunno, maybe. I liked it because in 7 minutes I was completely wrapped up Kara's story. That, to me, is what Quantic does so well. Again, maybe I'm a bit of a sucker, but I love that not to long ago pong was all the rage, and in a basic tech demo we get something like this today.

    Don't see other gaming hardware companies releasing tech demos that match this in looks on current gen technology. To those that say you are not impressed, more power to you. To those that just watched what I saw running on a ps3 and appreciating it, $#@! yeah.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    Bwahaha! Nothing represents Sony's exclusive dominance like Sackboy representations of some of their greatest titles!

    That's the point. Games are missing believable emotion.

    Common sense isn't all that common.
