EPIC ADDS GAMESPY TECHNOLOGY TO UNREAL ENGINE 316


In a press release issued by Epic Games and Gamespy today, it was announced that the Gamespy multiplayer and community technology will be incorporated in the PC and PlayStation 3 versions of the Unreal Engine 3. According to the press release, this will enable cross platform play (between PS3 and PC), communication tools and competition applications as well as the ability to store statistics enabling online player profiles. Here’s a snippet from the (very long) press release…

“By incorporating GameSpy’s online technology into Unreal Engine 3, the two companies have created an integrated one-stop solution for game developers looking to leverage the world’s most advanced multi-player technology and game engine in one package. The partnership will span both the PC and PLAYSTATION®3 platforms within Unreal Engine 3, enabling seamless PLAYSTATION®3 and PC online functionality. Functionality available to Unreal
Engine 3 licensees via Gamespy will include cross-platform gameplay, communication tools and competition applications.”

It has not been announced whether the cross platform play will be enabled on Epic’s upcoming Unreal Tournament 3 – although bear in mind the PS3 version accepts Keyboard and Mouse as controls, so it’s definitely possible. First PC mods playable on PS3 and now cross platform play – looks like Epic is really keen on sharing things between the two.

En una conferencia, dirigentes de Epic afirman que gracias a esta "actualización" del Unreal Engine 3, será posible el online cruzado entre pc y PS3 de varios juegos, como por ejemlo el Unreal Tournament 3, entre otras mejoras de los modos multijugador y de comunicación.

Buena noticia, pero mejor ésto lo veo en "charla". ya que no se trata de PS3 en concreto, si no de una desarrolladora y sus innovaciones técnicas.

Un gran motor gráfico, toda mejora vendrá a mejorar lo presente, que ya de por si es de alta calidad.

Aunque en el tema on-line PC-PS3 no estoy muy convencido. Ya comenté que existen diferencias que pueden traducirse una falta de equitatividad importante.
