Epic Demonstrates Unreal Engine Improvements on Gears of War 2

Gears of War was among the first games to make use of the Unreal Engine 3, so Epic Games has decided to show-off how much the engine has been improved since then. At a recent press conference the company used Gears of War 2 to demonstrate various improvements such as better lighting, improved efficiency, more realistic water effects, soft body physics and destructible environments. If you want to take a look at the video, which is just over six minutes long, head over to Shacknews.Source: Shacknews

Looks nice, but oh boy it's going to be consuming on the PC.

Consoles not included. :D

Consoles can keep the sequel. I played 5 mins of GoW on the PC and uninstalled it. Clumsy/weak controls, lame 3rd person view, weapons were just spray n pray, etc.
The port was nicely done compared to any other port I've played, but it just reeked of the console dumbing down process.
