High Voltage Software claims its new Quantum3 game engine will enable game makers to get Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 like graphics on the Wii console.
Quantum3 is the result of 15 years development experience and enables developers to make use of advanced graphical features, including better dynamic bump mapping, light effects, glossing and other visual improvements. Additionally, Quantum3 uses a 16 TEV stage material pipeline that can blend up to 8 separate texture sources.

The engine also uses advanced processing techniques to make gameplay smoother, examples including seamless resource streaming, projected shadows, morphing and much more.

"The Wii platform is capable of a lot more than what consumers have seen so far. We're hoping to raise a new bar," said High Voltage Software CEO Kerry Ganofsky.
Here's a tech demo of The Conduit, a first person shooter from High Voltage for the Wii that uses the Quantum3 engine:
