Epic Games VP explains why PS4 is like 'the world's best PC'

Epic Games VP explains why PS4 is like 'the world's best PC'

One of the biggest changes for the upcoming console generation is the switch to x86 architecture. That means working on PS4 (and likely the next Xbox) will be very similar to working on a PC. Already, Far Cry 3's tech director has spoken out on how great a decision that is. But what does Epic Games--developer of the near-ubiquitous Unreal Engine--have to say about it? Well, they're gushing as well.

"It's really important for us because we know the PC, we know the evolution of the PC and we work closely with those vendors on those parts," Epic VP Mark Rein said. "There's nothing that we have to guess about--we know what the processors can do, we know what the CPUs can do and we're using those same parts on the actual development hardware that we use. It just makes it a lot smoother and it also means we can build on our particular strength."

"It also had things like tesselation and some other features that didn't hit until the next gen."

Heavy Gear Assault shows off Unreal Engine 4 trailer

Heavy Gear Assault, the mech game that recently announced crowd-funding plans, will be based on Unreal Engine 4. MekTek Studios and the perfectly named Stompy Bot Productions announced use of the engine today, and released a new trailer to show off just what it can do with UE4 behind it. It takes a lot of horsepower to make a robot rollerskate.
