Midway is developing a first person shooter for all next-gen consoles, including the Nintendo Revolution. Through recruiting company Creative Heads, they are searching for a contract gameplay scripter and a level layout designer to develop a first person shooter at their Austin, Texas studio. The also specifically mention working with ´Unreal Kismet´, the Unreal 3 graphics engine´s visual scripting system.
Further, Midway are looking for a lead animator for an action-adventure game, again to be developed for all three next-gen consoles. The Midway careers page does not make any mention of platforms, though.
EDIT As Joystiq points out, this does not mean that such a game would look identical on all three consoles, not are the Revolution´s graphics necessarily on par with its competitors´ graphics.
Middleware packages, especially ones like Unreal Engine 3 that have a large PC client base, are designed to be scalable. In other words, sure it will run on the Revolution, but don't expect it to have the eye candy turned up to 11.So this piece of news says less about graphics capabilities but more about the availability of mature games on all three systems by means of easy to use middleware tools.
That being said, this is promising news for any hopes of seeing games ported to all three next-gen consoles. Developers who use software like Epic's engine will not only save themselves from reinventing the graphics wheel every game, but they'll also find it easier to scale their app across all three next-gen platforms, making us happy gamers.
