SEGA Licenses Unreal Engine 3

Today, in a move that might come as a surprise to Sonic fans, SEGA announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with Epic Games to incorporate the Unreal Engine 3 into several of its upcoming, unannounced games currently in development in North America.

"SEGA is pleased to arm our developers with the sophisticated tools contained in Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3," said Simon Jeffery from SEGA of America. "Its versatility and power will help SEGA create incredible gaming experiences."

The story is too old to be commented.

So is Sega making something with the UE3 for the Wii?
I see it listed under Wii on the IGN website.

...for Epic. More rehashing of the UE3, yet games are still priced with a premium.

I would think this would only be for Xbox 360 and PS3 games as they are the only 2 next gen systems for which the engine is designed for. Sega should not really need help with designing for the Wii since its not really any kind of a jump in tech like the 360 and PS3 are.

One thing for sure is any game they make using the engine should look good!
