    According to Loudmouthgamers, Epic Vice President Mark Rein took the stage yesterday at DICE and revealed that Unreal Engine 4 is currently running on "...systems [they] can’t name yet." Rein's presentation has left many speculating as to just how soon Microsoft will reveal their next-generation console.

    Rein also told G4TV that Unreal Engine 4 will roll out this year. "People are going to be shocked...when they see Unreal Engine 4 and how much more profound an effect it will have," Rein said.

    Systems? The WiiU has already been announced, and I'm pretty sure it won't be running on there. That leaves Microsoft, Sony, and a possible 4th contender. Microsoft already seems to be making a 3rd Xbox, so there's one of our minimum two systems. Sony has 10 year plans for all of its consoles, thus I doubt they'll have one coming out soon. In my mind, that guarantees either there's a console from another manufacturer coming soon, or it will run on the iPad 3 or some Apple product of that ilk.

    I fully expect some form of it to be running on iOS.
    The PS4 is confirmed to be in development (The PS2's "10 year life cycle" stretched well past the release of the PS3).
    The NextBox is also in development.
    I see no reason why this wouldn't run on the Wii U.
    And, of course, it will be on PC.

    None of this suggests a new platform to me.

    If they can run it on next gen systems that are running on lower mid end pc hardware like components, Why can't they just release it for pc right now?

    Probably still in the works or there's no point releasing it for the PC when it can't go multiplat. Like seriously, look at all the Unreal Engine games and name how many are multiplat. It's pretty high.

    Gambia, The
    Wii U supports for sure the light Version. Nintendo will do everything to get as much engines running on it as possible.

    i see it being on wii u, nomatter what anyone says, i see it even having a chance on 3DS, maybe most likely a custom version tho.
    what about other companys making consoles?
    like panasonic, gamestop tablet, onlive, steam, isec?
    i see a 4th or even 5th company making a console, not only nintendo, microsoft, & sony.
    coolest thing i seen for far as nextgen is wii u console tho.

    Currently it's a possibility, On the other hand, comparing the PS3 and 360 to the Wii shows something that was done this gen that made Nintendo the underdog in terms of graphics (Crysis 2 anyone?). Hopefully we'll see something really interesting on the next gen consoles :)

    Not sure if you're honestly saying that the 3DS could run Unreal Engine 4 games when DS fps games have been pretty much point and shoot in terms of compatibility. Don't get me wrong, I've played quite a few fps games on the DS (from Metroind Hunters to CoD games) and they've been amusing. They just don't work in comparison to TV-based consoles.

    those are DS games not 3DS games...
    3DS games are alot more capable than DS games, even resident evil 5 was running on 3DS.
    & resident evil revelations just came out.

    It's pretty silly to think that the iPad 3 (a portable device) will be able to run Unreal Engine 4 while the Wii U will not.

    Yeah, I don't really see where he says anything about UE4 running on next-gen systems.

    New and better graphics will be nice, but I wish that there was more of a focus on cutting down the costs of producing games. It'd be nice to see creative and innovative ideas no longer stifled or watered down (at least to the degree that we see today) because a single miscalculated risk can sink an entire company.
