Surely with the spectacular growth of Android and the eye-melting technology behind Infinity Blade already making it to the platform in question in the form of Dungeon Defenders, a port of the iPhone rail-sworder is on its merry way by now, right? Well, we could say yes, but if you wanted your news outlet to lie to your face you could just turn on Fox News, zing!
Now that the savvy political humor is out of the way, here’s Epic justifying its decision to hold off on an Android port. “If you took the underlying NGP hardware and shipped Android on it, you’d find far far less performance on Android. Let’s say you took an NGP phone and made four versions of it.
Each one would give you a different amount of memory and performance based on the crap [the carriers] put on their phone,” is what Epic’s Tim Sweeney had to say on the subject. Cue dramatic conclusion: “Google needs to be a little more evil. They need to be far more controlling.” Now word on whether thunderclaps were heard in the distance during that sentence.
