GCO: "It's no secret that Epic Games has established a very avid relationship with Microsoft, producing such exclusives as Gears of War and Shadow Complex – both very high sellers for Microsoft's system, the Xbox 360."
Indeed, they're both very ugly and overrated.
kind of like PP'S mom! :D
Perhaps Microsoft should just buy Epic. They seem to have a love affair with the UE anyway, and it would stop the Gears of War and Shadow Complex franchise's from ever going multiplat. They could also use the extra first party development. Just my two cents.
"Natal", the abortion of the industry Why wouldn't the Unreal Engine be the engine for Natal, it's the only engine our system can run...
"Why wouldn't the Unreal Engine be the engine for Natal, it's the only engine our system can run..." MT frameWork : Resident Evil 5 ? Crystal Tools : Final Fantasy XIII ? Havok : L4D series ?
Havok? What? The proprietary physics engine that like 90% of games use?
Valve's games use the Source engine for the game engine. They use a heavily modified version of the Havok physics engine to drive the physics. Unreal Engine 3 has PhysX built-in as its default physics engine.
"MT frameWork : Resident Evil 5 ? Crystal Tools : Final Fantasy XIII ? Havok : L4D series ?" Trying to be a smarty pants, but obviously ignorant of what engines are used. lol the Irony.
And we thought Natal was doomed before... Now with Natal MLB, you can play virtual baseball in a field made of crumbled rocks, limestone grass and rusted iron walls. You'll feel like your really there when you swing the cobblestone bat at the steel ball. Natal MLB: Metal-Lined Boulders
Havok is a physics engine XD left 4 dead runs on the source engine.
The Unreal engine sucked with a controller and it will suck even more without one.
Does any of you think this might be Unreal Engine 4? After all they said it would be released on the next console. Do you guys think Natal 360 will be released as Microsoft's next console?
I do suspect we'll see the 360/Natal combo or integration in stores around 2010, probably march. I though this ever since the Gears 4 on next gen consoles statement.
Yeah...that ricochet game and paint part run on unreal . " Microsoft's E3 demo for Project Natal include two game demos -- Paint Party and Ricochet. We assumed that these minigames were developed from scratch, specially for the E3 demonstration, but Epic's Mark Rein has stated in an interview with OXM that they were made using the Unreal Engine 3." http://www.joystiq.com/2009...
That's the problem with Microsoft. They're always branching out in the wrong directions, or else they're stubbornly sticking to one thing. The Unreal Engine 3 isn't bad, but it can't compete with a proprietary engine.
Wasnt gears 2 made using unreal? In which case unreal should be fine for the 360. At the end of the day it jsyt works like a pc. If they make an Unreal 4 it should be good. Also Im getting more and more excited about NATAL, apparently gears 3 will have it!!!
Mmmm...having Natal track your physical movements as you do the motion for chainsawing the Locust. That sounds very satisfying, lol.
Awesome! .....oh wait. SH*T!
hardcore gamers don't want this sh!t, its why they play 360/ps3 and not Wii. Stop forcing this crap on us.
so natal = old school tech like ps toy. huh?
It's been confirmed: Natal games will have bad graphics as well as sh1tty gameplay.
I'm sick of the Unreal Engine.
I always thought the Unreal engine was the unofficial engine of the 360 anyway.
