What should be interesting to see is the Torque Shader Engine which comes out this summer, can do everything (literally, EVERYTHING) that Unreal 3 Engine can do and will cost $295.00 to license instead of Uber Millions$$$.

Er, I doubt it'll be able to do everything. First off, TSE is just a graphics (shader) engine. It doesn't have all the other goodies that go into actually writing a game, and even though you can buy a lot of that stuff from GG (like network code), it's still not integrated. That integration is worth a lot of money, and that's what id and Epic give you with a full engine. Secondly, the Unreal3 engine runs like crap on current systems. TSE had better run well on current systems or it's already dead -- nobody is going to remember it 3 years from now when the systems are actually capable.

That said, yes, TSE is impressive. I don't understand why they don't have more tech demos though, given that they previewed it at GDC nearly 2 months ago. There's certainly not much buzz about it either.

Oh, and to be fair, the $295 price is only for "independant" developers. Commercial development has to pay the absurd price of $995! (Yes, that was sarcasm)
