LG Optimus 2X caught on camera powering Unreal Engine 3

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

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.

Join us after the jump to check out the video for yourself. [Tecnophone]

  • Thats amazing cant wait to get my atrix now that att will keep my unlimited data
  • Wow...that looks REALLY nice. Imagine playing this on a nice 7" or 10" tablet with HC...can't wait.
  • 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
  • "whoa"....only if you like paying $20 too much!
  • 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.
  • Ugh Sprint needs some dual core love... I want to play games like this.
  • Demo kinda reminded me of Fable 2.
  • This was shown at CES!!!!/Haxzamatic/status/24178129526333440
  • Wow that's pretty Epic, to say the least. I agree, Sprint has to announce something soon.
  • 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.
