The Unreal Engine began as a cutting-edge PC graphics tech, great for PC developers. The future is now though, and now is nex-generation (weird how that works, right?). Unreal Engine 4 will be aimed towards consoles, not the PC, according to Epic boss Tim Sweeny.
"There is a long life ahead for Unreal Engine 3. Version 4 will exclusively target the next console generation, Microsoft's successor for the Xbox 360, Sony's successor for the Playstation 3 - and if Nintendo ships a machine with similar hardware specs, then that also. PCs will follow after that."Epic seems to have gone crazy with console fever. I guess that just means more good out of it for us.
