Epic Games announced today that it intends to offer its Unreal Engine 3 technology and tools under Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.'s Tools and Middleware program for Playstation 3 as soon as the license program is started.

"We are committed to making Unreal Engine 3 the best game engine for the "PLAYSTATION®3", said Tim Sweeney, CEO and co-Founder of Epic Games. "We plan to offer it to our licensees as soon as the program is underway and we are very excited about the level of performance and visual quality we will be able to deliver on this platform. In addition Unreal Engine 3 should be an excellent fit for the platform and our licensees will benefit immensely from the experience we have been able to gain thus far working with it."

Unreal Engine 3 is expected to maintain those features while adding massive world support, multi-processor support, next-generation console optimizations, and one of the most mature tool pipelines in the industry. Unreal Engine 3's new toolset is designed specifically to accelerate developers' productivity for ultra-complex, next-generation content.
