Next Generation Unreal Engine 4 Running On “Systems We Can’t Name Yet”

Epic Games vice president Mark Rein has told journalists and developers at this years DICE summit that the company’s next generation Unreal Engine is currently running on “systems we can’t name yet”. We already know that Epic were behind the Japanese garden Wii U demo, so it wouldn’t be surprising if the engine is up and running on Wii U.

      4. Let me ask you something. Does a troll like you ever experience FEAR!!

        Turn into a Super Saiyan.

        Vegeta to 19 reference.

      5. anyone who talk sht about nintendo dosn’t know games very well and are sht themselves.

      6. “YOU WANT RAGE?
        YOU’VE GOT RAGE!
        YOU WANTED TRUE RAGE!
        NOW I’M RAGING FOR REAL!
        YOU’VE NEVER SEEN RAGE BEFORE ‘TILL YOU’VE WITNESSED RAGE SUCH AS THIS!
        I AM RAGING INFINITY SUNS!
        THOUSAND DRAGON VOMIT UP YOUR ASS!”

      7. Lol. That guy is smokin some defective shit.

        His brain has probably lost most of it’s logic cells.

      8. 13 across 25 years… nice job. You really wasted over 10 minutes researching this stuff didn’t you… you’re not really that stupid, you’re just messing with us. I wasn’t sure before but you’re making it too obvious… maybe no one will notice my comment but if you read it, you should take my advice and tone down the “put too much effort.” Your rants fit your “alter ego” better.

      9. I stopped reading his comments as it was truly trollish and very immature. In response, I say Vita is going to be Sony’s next PSP Go!!! Eat that troll.

      10. really bro? lol come on man. I don’t understand why trolls use Caps lock so much. Any of their trolling loses all credibility simply because they end up sounding like a blubbering imbecile, even if what they said had some logic, which Nintendo has under-utilized some periphials. But the slandering, caps lock, and overall ridiculousness and irrelevance to this article is simply ridiculous. So therefore, you are a useless troll.

      11. that is over many years though,nintendo made their first console in 1985 opposed to Microsoft which started consoles in 2001, as well Nintendo is always trying to innovate,some ideas flops some ideas great some failed ideas spark new ideas in the future such as the gameboy advance connecting to the gamecube,modern day equivelent is the Wii U.just a tip try trolling better because there are people who are way more intelligent when they reply to fools like you other then plainly calling you a bitch which you are.note haveing caps locked on does not make you have a voice,it is what you write that does

  1. Why shouldnt they be allowed to name Wii U. I guess it’s a Microsoft or Sony system they are working with?

    1. Nintendo wouldn’t even disclose who created the Wii U Japanese Garden tech demo, so I would imagine they’re saving all their ‘big’ information for E3.

      1. here you say we don’t know who made the Japanese demo bu tin the article you say that Epic were the ones that made it?

        until now we do not know who made it

      1. yes 3rd party support am tired of the shovelware and over milked francise.

        Mario land 3d…GALAXY+TANNOKI tail+3d=innovation OMG

        POKEMON BLK 100 NEW POKEMON+FIGHT ELITE 4 AT UR CHOICE=INNOVATION OMG

        MARIO KART 7 FAIL CUSTOMIZATION+3d+fag CHARACTER=INNOVATION WTF REALLY

        ANIMAL CROSSING…LEGS+swim=innovation

      2. Dude, don’t make me hate Gays.

        And why do you write in caps?

        And how do you know so much about Nintendo if you hate them.

    2. Nintendo confirmed at E3 that they are making anyone that’s working on the Wii U to not talk and to confirm it at E3 2012, If Nintendo did not want to confirm who made the Japanese Garden tech demo then they would never announce something like this before E3.

      1. I agree this looks too good to be on wii u because that car demo on wii u looks like fucking shit xbox an old console had better graphics than that ds/upad stolen tech from cellphones/ipad

      2. I think that would make us schizophrenic as well considering we have conversions. Lol I just keep imagining that we really are sickr talking to himself/ourself. It’s sorta confusing.

      3. Silly you. Did you forget the zelda and bird tech demos? More so.. Whenever ninty shows a tech demo, it means they are pretty proud of the graphics, and they end up doing much better before the console runs out. I mean compare the spaceworld zelda to twilight princess.
        More so, xbox used direct x 8.1, x360 used direct x 9.0… See the graphical leap? Expect the same thing to happen with Wii U’s direct X 10.1. For all I know, the Wii U is more than powerful enough to hold Unreal engine 3, and it can hold the unreal engine 4, but it could be a scaled down version of it like the ps2 version of unreal engine 2

      4. They’ve also accused me of being the same person. They clearly have mental issues and a lost grip on reality.

      5. What’s even stranger Ceijay is how we managed to be in two places at once to play each other online in Mario Kart 7. Lol, we’re really fucked up.

      6. no, we are sickr remeber. I got a blue 3ds in my hands and a red one by my toes. Oh yeah, im/we’re that good. Lol

      7. I/we should entertournaments, we’ll blo everyones minds with our crazy toe skillz,lol

      8. We should have posted this whole conversation in sickr’s comment just above this. Also have you seen the rest of us? We are missing like 5 other personalities ( btw I resent being associated with peteriuss. )

      9. *I/we should enter tournaments, we’ll blow everyones minds with our crazy toe skillz, lol.

    3. Maybe because Nintendo is thinking about renaming the WiiU. They don’t want the name ”WiiU” spreaded over the globe before they decide that. It could also be why we can’t see WiiU logo on games already confirmed to the console.

      1. yeah. also, i’ve heard that sony is working in a ”body controller” it should work like kinnect but with a controller.

    4. same reason the wii u logo isnt appearing on any of its upcoming game’s trailers, same reason the logo disappeared from the project cars website. that reason is because nintendo is changing or considering changing the name of the system, so the new name cannot be revealed yet.

      1. Same here.
        If it was made into a game it looks like it could have a lot of depth if it was worked hard enough on.

      2. Exactly what I was thinking. It could also have plenty of great action sequences and that robot at the end would make a great boss.

  2. If this runs on the Wii U then we can all kiss the hardware wars goodbye. It doesn’t matter whether the PS4/Wii U/NEXBOX is the weakest console or the strongest, as long as the hardware is close enough, publishers will develop for all three. The problem (for Microsoft/Sony) is it’ll cost a sizable difference to make such a large hardware gap, and then Sony/Microsoft might get alienated because it’s TOO powerful; developers don’t exactly like sky-high development costs for consoles that have an audience of no people (console not released when development begins). In addition, since the cheapest console always gets the most sales, making the strongest console is actually the WORST way to go into a new generation. Strongest console may sound good on paper, but if that’s all people cared about gaming PC sales would be going through the roof right about now.

    1. I agree, if Sony and Microsoft try to jump the gun in console power with the PS4/720 like they did with the PS3/360 Nintendo will win again. The PS4/720 shouldn’t be made too much more powerful or the price could be much higher than the PS3/360 were when they first came out. The stupidest thing they could do is try to jump the gun once again and make the consoles compatible with 4K TV’s which are supposed to hit the market this year http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2012/01/ces-4k-tv-sets-make-their-debut-minus-the-hoopla.html. Imagine buying a console that costs more than the original PS3 price tag of $600. No one would buy it, especially in these times.

    2. Totally agree. Developers will only go so far with graphics and detail because the public will stop caring about the small difference. This will eventually lead to a “hault” in upgrading the graphics on consoles, atleast for one generation.

  3. I’m guessing the systems are WiiU/Xbox720

    I doubt Sony is announcing the PS4 this year but I don’t believe the “it is releasing in 2016” statement either.

    1. its a graphics engine that epics games run off ie were the graphics for the game come from

    2. It’s an engine; it’s what games run in. However, since most programming languages (gaming-wise at least) are specific to certain engines, the engine also dictates how the game is being programmed/developed (or in other words, made). So Gears of War (Unreal Engine) won’t run on, say, CryEngine, because it’s a different engine and therefore programmed differently. There are ways to easily port languages, but they’re usually for stuff like Flash to HTML5 (much simpler than gaming engine porting); however, since game porting is much more difficult, “porting” games to different engines usually means developing the game again (so for a game that takes 3 years to develop the first time, porting it again usually takes around 2 years).

      For example, CoD is the exact same gameplay on the Wii and PS3/360/PC; however, since the Wii can’t handle the HD engine (rendering in 480p then scaled up to 720p), the team that created the Wii version (Treyarch for MW3, I believe) used a completely new engine that rendered in 360p or something lower then scaled up to 480p.

      1. How do I get my Gravatar to work. Went to website, completed everything, uploaded pic, gave access to my gmail – I’m actually great with computers, but not so great with this “cloud” stuff.

        Do I have to get the “Blogger” designation to be verified?

        I notice you guys have yours working… Thanks!

      2. What a good explanation. Many people don’t seem to realize how much work ports can be sometimes. I just have to say, that everything you write is not only well unbiased, but intelligent and well informed. Thanks for continuous contributions to these posts, because I personally appreciate it and I’m sure everyone else does too.

      3. Thanks, I really appreciate it when people… appreciate (bad word choice there) my comments. Sometimes I feel like my comments fall on deaf ears on this site, but comments like these show me the real MyNintendoNews community sandwiched between the constant troll-arguments.

  4. New unreal engine running for Wii U. The possibilities….. Wii U is gonna be a serious force to be reckoned with.

  5. With the WiiU running HD and appealingto it’s prior audience in addition to hardcore gamers, I think we have to believe there is a chance this could haopen more and more with serious game developers. (development for WiiU)

    1. *more serious-> sounds like I’m disparaging nintendo developers… OOPs. I mean Developers known to work with high-resolution platforms such as PC or PS3.

  6. this, will be used for sony and xbox, nintendo is for kids an families, they have no need for this. p.s could be a new system coming out also.

    1. depends on the system, i hear the ps3 is harder to port to than the 360 cos the 360 dev kits are built better, i hear the wii u ones are as easy as the 360 ones :)

      1. I understand your sarcasm, but i’m talking about copying the Wii U controller specifically.

      2. We all knew Sony and Microsoft were going to find a way to copy the Wii U controller. It was only a matter of time.

    1. there is no source given :P this is one massive claim backed up by no evidense, but it may still be true

  7. Obviously for Wii U! The others aren’t even finished yet. Why make something up and running on a new system that will probably totally change in the next few years. Of course it’s Wii U!

  8. Here’s hoping Nintendo is using a “heavily modified” version of Unreal Engine 4 for the next Metroid game =).

  9. Clearly WiiU is one of the systems they are hinting at. They cannot say its running on WiiU as Nintendo has yet to release any information on the hardware and its capabilities. So for Epic to say its running on WiiU would indirectly say just how capable the WiiU is.

    We all are going to have to wait till Nintendo lifts the embargo on information (hardware, games…) on their new console. I am going to say the consoles this engine is currently running on are the WiiU and the next Xbox. We already know the PC with their superior GPUs are more can capable. THIS E3 IS GOING TO BE EPIC….

  10. As long as Wii U can run Unreal Engine 4 a don’t give a flying dick about how strong the competitions consoles are.

  11. systemS = probably Wii U and the Xbox successor… Can’t believe a new PS would be due for at least a couple of years more down the road…

  12. running =/= same graphics. Whatever console it’s on, it will probably look like a toned down version of the samaratin.

    He said this (it starts 1:17:09):

    Quote:
    Today the engine runs on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iOS, Android, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation Vita and even in web browsers using Flash… oh, and *laughter* some platforms we are not allowed to mention by name yet. Soon we’ll be unveiling the amazing Unreal Engine 4.

    It runs on Wii U.
    I hate it when people don’t research the stories properly


    1. Seriously? Normally I don’t diss sickr but this is a very crucial piece of information! The article’s contents go from “Unreal Engine 4 running on unspecified platforms, Wii U could be one of them” to “Wii U can run Unreal Engine 4, along with next-gen systems; games could be ported across them.”

      It also means Microsoft and/or Sony have already sent out dev-kits, which is really promising at this point. I really hope they reveal the new systems at E3, even if they’re not selling them until 2013.

  14. When they said “it runs on a platform we can’t name yet,” they’re most likely talking about MS’s future console since it hasn’t been shown yet. Even if this runs on Wii U, it’s unlikely that they would go out of their way to hint at a Nintendo support from them when they’ve even bashed the company and its systems.

    Also, the Japanese Garden demo was not made by Epic Games. They quote that they gave was that “fish, meet water.” Before the Wii U, Epic Games said that they would support any console that could run their engine like “water and fish.” That’s where the E3 comment came from. And when they said that they saw their engine running on Wii U, they most likely were referring to games like Arkham City and Aliens: Colonial Marines since those games use the Unreal Engine.

    1. they said “systems we can’t name yet” meaning more than one. so its most likely Wii U and NextBox

  15. This has been totally misquoted… If you watch the video he says the Unreal engines are running on [insert alot of machines] INCLUDE systems we cant name yet. Then he goes on to say that they’ll present Unreal Engine 4 later this year.

    It’s like some people only want to hear what they want to hear.
