Unity On PS4/Vita “Has Some Rough Edges” But It’s Still The Best Multiplat Engine

iGR: "Assault Android Cactus developer Witch Beam Games are working on bringing the game to just about every platform under the sun (besides Xbox One). The reason the studio has such versatility stems from their use of the Unity game engine. I had a chance to ask lead designer, Sanatana Mishra, to give me his impression of the Unity toolsets available on the PS4 and PS Vita. There’s been little talk about Unity on PS4 thus far, so I was glad to hear" (Assault Android Cactus, PS Vita, PS4, Witch Beam Games)

Well, nothing is perfect. It amazes me how much of an improvement this is from the PS3s early life. Sony really learned from their mistakes. Now if they could do this with the Vita....

People are not going to buy it. After the mess that was psp I guess fans in camp sony are not saying much. Kinda like that sony 3d tv that crashed and burned...(24 inches?)
It's a shame, I'm sure sony thought fans would buy one with their ps4 or something...
They missed their chance with the vita tv last holiday season...

i bought a vita on my honeymoon. it was really awesome for the long flights to mexico and back. but what i didn't realise is how much i would still be playing it. and the people that say there are no games?.. fools! the backlog on the vita rivals my ps3 backlog.

I think it's a bit weird to see posts on this site about Unity. We're not developers, we're consumers, gamers.

To use an engine like this you'd have to tens of thousands of dollars. And that's not including the platform SDK, publishing costs, and the cost of actually putting together a game.
If people had those resources, I'm sure they have better resources for developer news.

I absolutely believe it is relevant to post Unity stories here.

Some N4G readers who are interested in reading about games go on to try making their own games after being inspired to create their own experiences. There are entry level packages for junior programmers to use Unity. And game creation is part of the wider culture of gaming.

As a unity developer myself, I love seeing articles about unity on here. Its a very unappreciated engine. Unity is actually very cheap to use, its not like cryengine where you have to pay thousands of dollars for a licence. Unity is such a great engine because the workflow is so quick, and its so cheap and easy to use. Thats why lots of indie developers use it.

This requires Unity Pro, though. Which isn't that cheap. And it comes with separate licenses for each (PS) platform - but that said, it's free for Sony devs (must be a PS dev, though - actually, there is no other way to get this version anyway).

Unity Pro is very cheap compared to how much it costs for a proper licence for most other engines.

Even on Playstation still has better of two, but yeah nothing perfect

I don't think Unity looks very good.

at this point the Unity engine is just as capable as any other next gen engine out there, it just depends on who's behind the keyboard. Most people go for simpler graphics when using unity because they are always smaller studios to which Unity is perfect for.

Just watched that video in 1080p and it doesn't look next-gen to me.
