Unreal Tournament III: PS3 the Definitive Version?

unreal-tournament-2007-screenshot.jpg

Epic Games demonstrated Unreal Tournament III using the PlayStation 3′s new SixAxis controls at the Games Convention in Leipzig yesterday.

The Redeemer super weapon, always a crowd pleaser, is now controlled in camera mode by tilting the PS3 controller from side to side. The hoverboard is also controlled by tilting the SixAxis controller, and can execute spins and tricks with the twist of a pad. The demo went off seamlessly.

An Xbox 360 version will be out early next year but the PS3 and PC will have UT3 before Christmas. With the PS3 version keeping time side by side with the PC version at a steady 60FPS, one has to wonder which version will be the one to buy for the owners of multiple platforms.

Personally I own all three platforms. Given the outstanding frame rate and confirmation of mouse and keyboard support, I believe gamers will have good reason to buy UT3 for the PS3. I personally would have to upgrade any of my PCs to match 60FPS. The use of the SixAxis controller clinches the deal for me. Gamers who are still deciding on whether to buy a PS3 have much more motivation to do so.

@Ralph

1, it’s still unknown, Epic however said they won’t use the Windows Live stuff, so they may be planning something for cross-platform.

2. None that I’m aware of.

3. It won’t (for now at least)

4. The game will have no fees, you’ll still need a gold subscription though.

5. 32 max as a safe be. (although a decent enough server machine with a good connection could host a 64 player match in UT2004)

I’m wondering if they will allow split screen online multiplayer, much like Warhawk is doing. I mentioned that in a previous post, and the way it sounds i may pick this game up regardless, but it would be awesome to do split screen online…

funny not

I heard that only the PS3 and PC versions will be able to utilise user generated content although I may be incorrect.

@ stalker and dragon, the ps3 already has been confirmed to recieve mods, the 360 however will not, so yes the ps3 is the best version

Yes i can agree, the PS3 version will be the better one to go with, especaly if its cross platform with Gamespy, also user content for PS3? awesome. its too bad the 360 version lacks this. Moneysoft is cheap!.

I know this is good for PS3 fans. it may be time to shell out $$$ for a PS3 if this is a continuing trend. I am no fanboy of either (like some people). So its all about the games and UT3 is a defenite winner on the PS3 vs Xbox 360.

Im pretty much a sony fanboy, so im stoked for UT3. I just freakin hope the online multiplayer will be good and simple like the Xbox. O and i heard the rich ppls at microsoft “contributed” $50M to Epic in order to get exclusive content. Any truth to this?
