Oh Epic. You pumped all your resources into UT3 and couldn't figure out why that game bombed so bad. Nintendo systems have never had the hardware specs their competition has yet they still continue to outsell everyone. Maybe hardware isn't everything?
Though Shadow Complex would be cool on the 3DS, I just cant find myself buying a 3DS only to get cross-eyed after a few months. Epic can at least make a UE2 port for 3DS, and sell that. If the 3DS can play metal gear 3 like advertized, it can sure as hell support UE2.
"it'll feature PlayStation 2-level graphics"
I don't know why some people keep saying this, Snake Eater 3D and RE:Revelationa are CLEARLY above any PS2/Gamecube game in terms of graphics. Nintendo 3DS utilizes many advanced effects that are exclusive to the current-gen consoles(as demonstrated by capcom).
Iphone 4 might be a little bit more powerful that the 3ds but I'm pretty sure that epic is underestimating nintendo's new handheld.
Well, with the antennagate and glass crack problems, the iPhone 4 is anyway not a good phone. So one could call it a gaming console (if it doesn't suck at that as well)and compare it to dedicated consoles!
I still won't buy an iphone. $300 expensive? Try $600+ for an iphone that can't even do 3D. Epic? isn't that company a dinosaur? I mean after the disappointments in the Unreal series on the xbox360 and PC. I don't really think they have a lot of say.

People are saying this because there's no way the iPhone4 is a better games device than the PS2. Therefore, if Epic can get their engine running on the iPhone4, they should be able to get it to run on a PS2, and thus, by definition, they should be able to get it to run on a 3DS.
I do agree that Epic probably just doesn't want to bother with the 3DS. They probably won't get anywhere with the iPhone4 either.
I'm sorry, until the iPhone/Touch gets a joystick and some input buttons it will never be anything but a casual gaming device
Being limited to touch screen only input will always leave it as a casual game paradise but a gaming machine wannabe. Who cares about amazing graphics if you can't control anything on screen in real time with precision
