Crispy Gamer writes: "Epic is one busy company. Outside of getting Gears of War 2 ready for this holiday season, it's still supporting Unreal Tournament III for the PlayStation 3 and PC, getting a version ready for the Xbox 360, and doing truckloads of business with its highly popular Unreal Engine 3. Obviously this makes Epic's Mark Rein a pretty happy guy. At Midway's recent Gamers' Day, we caught up with Rein and found out if he still wants to keep the company independent, if he was happy with the lower-than-average sales of Unreal Tournament III, the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest and Gears of War 2.
Crispy Gamer: Last time I saw you was at GDC, and the only thing that came out of your mouth was "One billion dollars!" and then you giggled and walked away. What was up with that whole deal?
Mark Rein: Oh, people were saying that we were going to get a billion dollars. It was just kind of stupid."
