New Prince of Persia cinematic intro

While I was disappointed to hear that Ubisoft moved away from their adopted cel-shaded approach in the new installment of the Prince Of Persia games saga, the new cinematic intro/demo released for the game (called The Forgotten Sands) illustrates in a great way just how far photorealism in gaming has progressed.

Check out the video above, while I have a very strong interest in non-photorealism and its inherent abilities, the technical achievements of approximating reality in games should not be understated. Eagerly awaiting for the release of the game itself.
