Mark Rein on Unreal Engine 3
This article on Gamasutra really chaps my hide. Mark Rein of Epic Games says to the press that Gears of War is going to look better than many PS3 launch titles. Well, he should know – there were so many developers that jumped on board and decided to use Unreal Engine 3 after the announcement that Epic was aligning with Sony to bring Unreal Engine 3 to PS3.
Think about it. If a bunch of titles that use UE3 are trying to hit PS3 launch, why would Gears of War look better than them? Shouldn’t it look about the same? Well, unless… the PS3 hardware is less capable of course. Or… maybe UE3 isn’t DONE on PS3 or is not being focused on much by Epic because they’re working so hard on Gears of War. It is funny how Epic is in the unique position of being able to make the PS3 launch look better or worse due to the high number of PS3 titles that are focusing on using their engine. It makes one wonder…
Conspiracy theory anyone? 😉
