It was running on a high end machine, it was a tech demo.

The texture quality looks on par with what we have now, why not show the capabilities of the engine? It brings the whole thing down, a lot.

People don't care how much realtime this things is, because for most of them, it's hard to tell. Better textures on the other hand make a lot of difference.

Also, UE3 had trouble with compressing textures too much, so it didn't matter how good they were.
