Epic Citadel on Optimus 2X

Infinity Blade and Gears of War developer Epic Games revealed a few weeks ago that its Unreal Engine 3 technology was already up and running on Android, and now we have proof in the form of a video shot by Italian site Tecnophone.it.

During a demonstration of the Optimus 2X by LG, the manufacturer showed its Tegra 2-powered device running the "Epic Citadel" tech demo on the phone and a connected HDTV simultaneously. The demo looks great in TV mirroring mode, which is all the more impressive considering it's running from a handheld device

Epic's middleware has already powered popular iOS games like Infinity Blade and Dungeon Defenders, and the fact that the same tech is running so well on bleeding-edge Android devices can only mean great things for the future of Android gaming.

LG Optimus 2X caught on camera powering Unreal Engine 3


So is verzion. just spoke to c.s on the phone and assured me 4g would be 30 bucks for unlimited 4g data. Whoa really good news for V customers

Yeah, but Verizon hasn't announced a Tegra 2 powered phone yet. 3 4G phones and not one of them could get the cool Nvidia chip. I really want a new phone. I've been waiting since July when my new every 2 became available, and now I'm still going to be waiting with my Storm version 1. I want a 4 inch qHD screen or SAMOLED+, Tegra 2 and at least 1GB of RAM on a Verizon phone. I don't even care if LG has to make it. A slide out keyboard would make it perfect, but it would be acceptable without the keyboard. I think the stupid Iphone deal screwed us out of the Atrix.

No, really? Then what is the Droid bionic. You know the fourth 4g phone that Verizon announced at CES that has a dual core tegra two processor.

Anybody else didn't like the atrix, I stayed with the inspire. Htc need some tegra action. What the he'll are they waiting for, thunderbolt shouldve had it for sure.
