Ubisoft says they got the Unreal Engine running on 3DS

I dunno why I’m up so late tonight, but since I am, I figured I might as well update the site once or twice! Check this out:

“The 3DS is powerful, and we are able to run the Unreal engine on this console, which is pretty impressive for a handheld machine, and the 3D doesn’t affect the performance (thanks to my amazing programmers). The architecture is different compared to a Wii or some other platforms that we had to work with here at Ubisoft Montreal.” – Ubisoft’s Fabrice Cuny

not like it matters seeing all the garbage ubisoft release on handhelds i doubt they would ever even bother using it

if assassins creed for the 3DS is another lazy effort from ubisoft then they are just dead to me when it comes to handheld games

Marky Mark Rein isn't going to like this.

SnakeMustDie2982d ago

It can be Unreal Engine 1.

Muletroid2982d ago

i actually find it kinda funny that you comment on 3DS articles more than the people who actually like/want the thing

koehler832982d ago

Epic told Destructoid that it's Unreal 2.

People here should be hoping both NGP/3DS do well so we can stop seeing all the Apple taking over mobile gaming crap articles.

id rather not see generic unreal engine games like the consoles have..........and nintendo has done just fine without any lazy engines that breed lazyness and genericness

@plb, real gamers and people in the indstry know that isnt happening. The 3ds is the most successful handheld ever so far. And just wait till that library takes off. It will be like the gba and ds all over again

I love my ps3 but there new handheld is....I'm not sure why sony keeps trying. I wish they would put that money towards more ps3 games. We talk about this ever time sony drops a handheld. There never going outsell nintendo in the handheld market. I hope it dos well but i'm not droping my cash out for another one of there handhelds. Besides i'll be broke by the time it releases with all the great games hiting the ps3 this year.

Redempteur2982d ago

Well they did pretty much fin considering All the other attempt nintendo pushed back like nothing.

Gizmondo, n-gage , neogeo pocket and the list goes on .. everyone died quickly while sony managed to keep his market alive ..that's certainly an achievement .

ThanatosDMC2982d ago

So you're complaining about NGP because you want Sony to make more PS3 games but at the same time complain that they're releasing a lot of great games this year? I'm confused.

Active Reload2982d ago

Stealth, lazy engines? Stick to whatever else you do in life, because info about game developing isn't one.

Phantom, if you don't want the NGP then don't buy it.

phantomexe2982d ago

I'll break it down for you Thanatos. The NGP is a waste of money. When sony could put that money to better use. U R UndErstand now

Epic stated that they wont make games for the 3DS because the handheld cant run the games at the detail level that they want.

So yes you can run games made with the UE3 on the 3DS. But because of the hardware they will never look close to console games running UE3.

But anyways i am getting tired of seeing the UE3 because most games that use it look the same.

its the same thing with capcom and MT frameworks its obviously not gonna be an exact match to what's on the home consoles but that isn't gonna stop it from looking very nice and close enough on the 3DS
