The latest demonstration video for Crytek's CryEngine 3 shows off the amazing things the game engine can do on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

While I don't normally get all hot and bothered over tech demos, I have to admit that I am thoroughly impressed by what Crytek has achieved with CryEngine 3. The animations alone have me looking forward to seeing what developers can do with the horsepower they'll be getting. Of course, giving a person a Stradivarius doesn't mean they'll automatically become a concert violinist. It's in the way that you use it. Here's hoping that CryEngine 3 gets used well.
