No UT3 PC-to-PS3 Online
UT3 is probably the most anticipated game among folks who don’t know how good Call of Duty 4 is. (Like that?) One of the coolest things about UT3 on the PS3 is that it seems to be taking all the benefits of PC gaming, and combining it with all the benefits of platform gaming. You have the stability of a single platform – the PS3 – mixed together with the flexibility of a PC. So you have keyboard and mouse support, mods, and the theoretical capability of letting PC gamers and PS3 gamers duke it out.
Unfortunately or not – I personally don’t care – Epic has decided not to enable PS3 versus PC play. They say that console releases take time, while updates can be released a lot quicker on the PC side. So it’s unfair to hold up PC gamers, making them wait for the certification process on the console to complete, before releasing patches.
Makes sense to me. For me, UT3 isn’t about being able to play PS3 versus PC anyway. I just want to get into a fast shooter and start the destruction. I don’t care if they’re using a PC or PS3 on the other end, as long as the playing field is fair.
