Posted on July 22, 2007, Andrew Unreal Tournament 3 Will not Use Games for Windows LIVE
What’s more cool than being able to play games with your friends on their PS3s across town using your PC? If you said nothing, that’s not quite the right answer–but it’s close.
Epic Vice President Mark Rein said in a recent post that Unreal Tournament 3 is NOT going to be using Games for Windows LIVE, meaning there is still a possibility for cross-platform play. According to Rein’s post, however, they’re “not 100% sure that users want that feature,” but they’re going to play around with the idea.
I can’t understand why gamers wouldn’t want this feature. For years there has been a huge divide between gamers who have consoles and those who have PCs, and I don’t know if there’s been anything to bridge that gap.
Epic, seriously, bring it on.
