Oh yeah, get hype! Enough of the low spec woe is us next gen talk...these machines are going to be beefy. Possibly really beefy, given Samaritan ran on 3 GTX 580's.
The DICE summit is currently taking place as awards are being handed out and moments ago Mark Rein took the stage. While talking about Unreal Engine 4 he said that the graphics engine was running on “systems I can’t talk about by name.” This would obviously point to the next generation of consoles being pretty far into development. Let the rumors continue to come out of the woodworks!
UPDATE: The quote was technically “Including systems we can’t name yet.”
Because this isn't shocking, quite frankly this isn't very shocking at all because you know that there are system in development that aren't annonced yet such as the next Playstation and Xbox consoles.
huh, now this can only mean that either YOUR or MY sarcasm detector is broken!!
I am already preparing my hankies for the news.
If it "can't" run on the Wii U (but runs on newish iOS hardware) the reactions will be hilarious.
This thread has bummed me out. But only because of Epic's seemingly hatred of Nintendo.
Maybe Unreal 3.5 at best for Wii-U
Certainly he was working on Unreal Engine 4 at the time.
“I can tell you that I got to see it at E3 and it was what I expected of course. We were very excited to play some of their demos, see how good the feel of the hardware was — it’s a very impressive system and I think it’s gonna do quite well. If Nintendo made a system that could run our engine, we’d be on it like water on fish.’ And so when someone asked me what I thought about the Wii U, I said, ‘Water, meet fish.’” - Mark Rein
Granted, doesn't mean much in this case. But in general, it's just implying that it's for "next-gen consoles" and not for the current ones.
Don't know what to expect, except to just wait until E3. :p
