Unity wins

One company is aiming to reap the benefits no matter what next-gen console gamers buy. That company is Unity. Announced Thursday at Microsoft’s Build Conference, Unity has entered into a partnership with Microsoft to support the Xbox One among other Microsoft platforms, including Kinect and Smart Glass.

Unity is amazing. It's true that it isn't the most powerful engine out there but it allows games to actually happen for small teams because of its ease of use. Besides, it's powerful enough for anything a small team can manage.

I'll be trying to develop my first PS4 game soon. Can't wait!

So it's an engine? Any current games using it? Wonder if it will be as big as UE3.

I'm currently on level 4 of Shadowgun, and occasionally play Dead Trigger on my iPad 3rd Gen lol. Don't crucify me for mentioning an iOS game. I do own a PS3,XB360, Wii and I have pre-ordered my XB1 and PS4 day one editions lol.

it's an engine, used mainly by indie game devs currently.

It's not really an UE3 competitor in its current form because UE3 caters to bigger companies, but the Unity team is working hard on updates and it's already surprising what you can do with this engine.

What's really REALLY cool about it is that you can make your game rapidly on your PC and simply click on a button to deploy it on any platform you like. PS3, X360, Android, iPhone, PS4.... anything

It's great for indies due to it's price and power, but they aren't the only ones who've taken it on. EA announced back in 2010 they were signing a multi-year enterprise deal with Unity. I understand Square Enix is using Unity now. Nintendo is reportedly using Unity in a big way for future Wii-U games and both Sony and Microsoft have unveiled plans to make plugins available for Unity3d to aid in PS4, Vita and Xbox One development.

Having used UDK, from a developer standpoint I'll take Unity any day of the week, although I know people who use Unreal that have this fanatical dedication to the tool that I just don't understand. I always found it's tools needlessly complicated, and the idea that you have to do all your coding in Unreal Script is just ridiculous, although I'll admit I only spent a few months working with it. It sounds like they may have fixed a few of the issues I had with it in the Unreal Engine 4, although I'm not sure if they're licensing that to anyone but the big guys at the moment.

Timesplitter141627d ago

Don't you need the actual paid UE3 (and not just UDK) to release on consoles?

I've used it a long time ago, maybe it has changed

Festano1627d ago

Is a great engine. Many companies will use it.
