Epic Games Complains About 3DS's Lack Of Power

Image
Vice president of Epic Games stated, during an online interview, that Epic will not be working on a 3DS version of the unreal engine because it's "below our min-spec." Even though Epic has ported it over to both the iPhone and Android, the VP considers the new device less capable than the iPhone 3GS since that can run Epic Citadel fine.

Re: Epic Games Complains About 3DS's Lack Of Power

Well not only that, it hasn't come out yet and was beat by a year old phone. :(
I wanted this thing to be strong, but I guess Nintendo would rather hope that their gimmick would overcompensate, but I feel that it won't. Why can't they have a console with something not only new, but also strong? For years, they've been releasing handhelds that were too weak for it's time...

I don't care how iphone games look, any of the games I have played or seen are not nearly advanced enough to make me want it over an actual gaming handheld.

The last DECENT handheld Nintendo released was the GB Pocket, and the GBA SP.

I liked the Micro. None of the DS's appealed enough to me to want to buy.

Re: Epic Games Complains About 3DS's Lack Of Power

They didn't make anything because it was not up to their standards, and neither is this one. :O
Which says a lot because they work with the iPhone...

Return to Nintendo DS/3DS
