Watch all 12 minutes of Quantic Dream's PS4 tech demo 'The Dark Sorcerer'

Sony teased Quantic Dream's real-time PlayStation 4 tech demo "The Dark Sorcerer" at its press conference last night, and has now released the full video to the public.

The demo stars the old man from Quantic Dream's video that accompanied the PlayStation 4 announcement back in February. Here, he comes to life as a powerful sorcerer — who, it is revealed, is actually just an actor named David on a video game set.

"The Dark Sorcerer" is running on a PlayStation 4 in real time, but does not represent any projects currently in development by Quantic Dream or anyone else.
