While the glorious graphics in Gears of War 2 can certainly make a grown man cry, Epic Games senior producer Rod Fergusson thinks that the Xbox 360 may soon reach its visual potential. In an interview with GamaSutra, Fegusson said the following:
"I'm not the technical guy... all I know is that with the two to three more years of optimization that we've had, we're much further along than I think, three years ago, we thought we were going to get. So I think we're certainly approaching the upper end of it, as far as what developers are able to do with it, but just looking at all the demos we saw today -- ours and others -- it's clear that all the games just keep improving, and keep pushing that bar. I think it's just a matter of, you know, it's a slow cycle; you only get a kick at it every couple years, and so it takes a while for people to see that progress."
Well, as soon as we play the hell out of Gears of War 2, we'll look back at Fegusson's statement and see if it's true or not. Gears of War 2, published by Microsoft, will be out this November 7 for the Xbox 360.
