After Cevat Yerli’s statements, it’s time for Epic to heat things up. Instead of bashing the other engines though, Mark Rein, Vice President and Co-Founder of Epic Games, concentrated on their own engine and claimed it to be their best engine yet. Not only that, but Rein re-confirmed that the engine will scale down on all other devices and stated that it will be ‘rocking up and down the entire scale of next gen devices‘.
Rein is also excited about all of the next-generation devices. This of course does not mean that Rein (or Epic) is more excited about a particular platform. According to Rein, they’re all going to be great and you should not let anyone tell you one particular device has won over another.
In addition, Rein said that ‘it is an exciting time to be in the game business as the next generation (consoles, phones, tablets, PCs) are going to be incredible‘. This obviously means that Rein has some inside information about those next generation devices, meaning that we should be getting more news, rumors or leaks about the ‘next-generation’ hardware in the following months.
A couple of days ago, Epic Games demonstrated Unreal Engine 4 in E3 and although it was not as mind-blowing as Square Enix’s Agnis Philosophy tech demo, it was impressive, looked great and ran amazingly smooth on a single GTX 680.
Enjoy the Unreal Engine 4 tech demo for one more time!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
