  • 38 Studios snags to use the UE3 engine.

    Are studios getting that lazy to create their own graphics engine? Can't they use a different engine or create their own? The UE3 engine is getting old.

    I's not laziness, it's a reasonable business decision. And that's a good engine.

      UE3 engine is becoming a standard. It's a great flexible engine. At least this way, most people can tell ahead of time if they can run these games coming out on the engine.

        Isn't it one of the few that makes use of multiple cores and physics cards?

          Speaking as someone who works in the gaming industry, a studio who claims to be able to (or wants to) create their own graphics engine will most likely not get funding today. There are way to many business risks associated with this. Its not an easy technology to get right. It takes a lot of time away from actual content development. Lastly, most who try to do this, fail, because there are only a few Carmacks around.

            Who gives a damn about physics cards?

              UE3 is also a very expensive engine. If you're just starting out, take a look at Garage Games' engine.

                Since Nvidia bought ageia physx, possibilities exist. Mostly I was commenting about multiple core use.


                BTW thanks for your informative post!

                  UE2 had so much QUALITY content. Why bash UE3? It just needs time.
