[QUOTE=Not-Registered;935214]These look awesome, though I choose to remain skeptical of "next-gen" examples.I also fear for the poor artists who are going to have to pump out models of this standard within the same time frames.[/QUOTE]I admit to thinking largely the same thing. Squeenix looks to be focusing a lot on flash and flare. Which, okay they can look great, but did you catch the estimated number of man hours that went into the "demo" sequence those characters were used in? When I read that figure my jaw literally dropped. Expanding those kinds of figures out to a full scale game production and we're talking MMO costs for your standard RPG derivative. That's not remotely sustainable.
