Let’s play a little game of spot the difference. Two of the pics of the rather dull boardroom above are real, two of them were generated using Konami’s new Fox Engine – which will be used on next generation consoles like the PS4 and Xbox 720 Durango. Can you tell which is which? It’s the ones on the right, if you’re wondering.
Now look below. There’s a horse generated using the Fox Engine. A little out of place in a boardroom, perhaps – but imagine riding around on that in the breathtaking scenery of Red Dead Redemption. Jumped up from your chair in excitement? Take a deep breath – Microsoft has the Xbox 720 Durango in London right now, and is showing off its capabilites to games developers.
Take a moment to contemplate what, say, Rockstar could do with graphics like that. Grand Theft Auto V is already looking a bit old hat, isn’t it?
