It looks pretty good overall, but is noticeably less smooth than the UE4 Elemental PC demo shown last year. It looks like the shading is a bit more harsh, we also noticed little bits of aliasing, and it seems to not have the focal point effect that the old PC demo had. With that said, this is an early build for a console thats not out yet, so after a few more months to bake and get optimized, it’s very possible the PS4 will be able to match the quality of the PC demo.

Epic also showed off a brand new, futuristic Infiltrator demo of the Unreal Engine 4 running on a PC with the GTX 680.

This demo aims to be more impressive, offering us a nearly Pixar quality of graphics in real time. Lots of smoothing and lense effects work to make the video look really cinematic. The fact that this demo is running on current PC hardware is nice and only means that as new hardware comes out, the Unreal Engine 4 will scale to get bigger and better.
