Some good news from IGN today. Epic's Unreal Engine 3, the most talked about graphics engine for next-gen consoles, has been licensed by Sony Online Entertainment. Sony Online has already released statements about using the engine for their future titles, including an unnamed MMO based on the DC Comics universe. This may be a good substitute for the voided Endless Saga. Although the MMO isn't limited to PS3, it's still at least one coming to the PS3.

SOE president John Smedley had this to say about the license aquisition: "The combination of a top-notch graphics engine and a robust set of design tools will enable our teams to deliver incredible and innovative game content for next-generation consoles and the PC." Hooray! Right? Well, until we actually can play this engine ourselves to judge its hyped awesomeness, let's just assume this is a good thing.
