Epic Games has announced that it will make Illuminate Labs a part of Epic's Integrated Partners Program. This licensing agreement will see the incorporation of Illuminate Labs' global illumination system, Beast, into Epic's Unreal Engine 3.
Gears of War 2 is going to look quite nice.
goew 2 wil be looking amazing even tho i don't like the game much its still the best looking game created to date on any console
EDIT: "using renowned Unreal Editor" that to me says ^^that could be done?
wow can we say gears of war 2 :)
Im no fanboy, but this has got to piss some people off. This pretty much guarantees that the 360 version of UT3 is going to look better than the PS3 version. I'm really looking for a reason to buy a PS3. I hope MGS4 helps me with that decision. Because right now, I'm neck deep into about 4 games on my 360: Orange Box, A-Creed, Mass Effect, & GH3. Now UT3 on the 360 will get an updated lighting system, doesnt that piss you PS3 fans off?
what the hell is wrong with people....
dude they said and i state its done "using renowned Unreal Editor", which is what we at home even get with the PC version, you can create anything (ANYTHING... new textures, charator model, particle effect... even a new lighting system^^) and port it over to the PS3 as a MoD, i cant see any reason why Epic cant patch it for the PS3 if they were gonna impliment it into UT3.
Dont worry Mighty Douche about 50% of the people on here lack any intelligence, just skim read everything then just try and bash any console they can.
your getting a port rite
if you need a reason to buy a ps3 then just dont. its far better than the xbot and you dont NEED TO PAY TO PLAY
I just hope the story is a lot better than the 1st one..
epic is loving sony and there open network
but that game was made along with microsoft, i think they funded and published the 1st one and they own the IP like with halo
or maybe ps3 will see a "remake" like ninja gaiden sigma, who knows?
Where is it stated that Microsoft owns the rights to the Gears of War IP? I think Epic stated that Gears 1 wasn't coming to the PS3 because Microsoft published the IP thus havin conciderable rights to it. However Gears belongs to Epic not Microsoft so just like Sony published Ace combat 5 but Namco still owned the IP thus they could do put 6 on the Xbox360 without dishonering any contractural agreements.
Anyway Gears 1 was published by Microsoft but owned by Epic.
Good news for everyone.
but epic needs to work on keeping the engine steady on consoles. gears, mass effect, r6v, and UT3 on ps3 experiences some pop-ups and unstable framerates. i understand if they cant pull off the full 60fps the way CoD4 did because the UE is more advanced but at least try and keep them locked at 30fps with no pop-ups, THEN add the other details like this lighting
but i have other things to pay for (girlfriend, rent, clothes, food, school) and id rather get a $400-$600 console than a $1500+ PC that can run the engine and games efficiently
Cant argue with consoles price to performance ratio compared to PC i guess. Still that nice HDTV cost a pretty penny.
There's not much people can say about the PS3 that doesnt piss the sony fans off. If you think that the 360 will get a port, your crazy. You do KNOW that UT3 for the 360 was started and played first. They just put it on hold so they could finish the PS3 version. You are retarded if you think it will not look better than the current version out on the PS3 right now... Kids.
then epic changed their minds and decided to bring it to 360/PC after the success they saw with gears
i need 2 proofs of purchase to go with that.
1st i need proof of a 360 version started and put on hold
2nd proof i need is the fact that the 360 wont get a port. i didnt know they had 2 different teams building UT3 form the ground up for both systems
isn't from an 360 website
whatever is mentioned in the article that can pertain to any system or whatever gets placed in the right place ;o
UT3 will not look better on the 360 sir. COD4 was the 360's limit. They will have to tone it down for the 360. Mark my words.
consider them marked.
a year ago you people were saying that gears was the limit.
somehow the 360 has managed to prove you all wrong...again?
remember IW took everything out of cod4 that could make the game run below 60fps.
Enough, already! Time for a new engine with more potential, all games are beginning to look the same and have the same bugs. Thank god for COD4
lets just hope nothing goes wrong with gears of war 2
