    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.

    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.
