Epic Games feels that one of the biggest issues with the recently released Unreal Tournament 3 is that due to the inclusion of console-friendly features (necessary for the title's PlayStation 3 version), the game lacks a lot of necessary polish.
What's the point in talking about this now? The game is already out and players are already loving the endless piles of user mods they can use.
If Epic wants to talk about something, talk about a update..
So user friendly features are at fault Epic? Like working voice communication? Or how about your Midway servers being the only servers with good ping? Or perhaps because your game was rushed? I find it funny, that they complain about Ut3 sucking because we all know the truth that the game was rushed just to sell it before Christmas 2007. Mark Rein should also blame the consoles for lack of Pc sales too right. Despite the Pc version being bought so people could make mods for the ps3. O and it has been over 3 months yet no simple patches like making mods install, mics work, less lag... I am sure that why the sales of UT3 sucked. Atleast they made mods possible, but such amateur mistakes in online gaming coming from a power house developer is pathetic. Hopefully they cancel UT3 360 and move those resources to making GeOW 3 much better.
They sold around 1.2 million copies so far (PC + PS3)
does that mean will it look alittle better on the 360 (no offence to fanboys... dont want to make this a flagwar now)... i mean they did say it was b/c of deadlines and they r making this 4 the 360 so they have more time to "polish" it... so the question here is... is the 360 version gonna have/make difference that the ps3 seems to lack/dont have?
I would expect that though with 6 more months of work and time. That even happens when PS3 gamers get a game later then the 360. I don't like times exclusives because of it.
Im saying this as a PS3 fan.. The 360 version will be better..
Working Mic Function
More People Playing it
POSSIBLY Better Graphics and Polish
Epic develops games easier on 360
anytime someone makes a POINT to say: "i'm a playstation/360 fan"-it means they AREN'T a fan.
While I don't really agree with you on most of the things you've said, I will say that UE3 is an engine I'd rather not have on the PS3. I don't think I've seen one great game on the PS3 that uses it, UT3 is about the best (re graphics and FPS). They either need to sort out its ability using the cell or shove off and let a more capable PS3 engine have its day, rather than pretending they have the PS3 architecture sussed. I was looking forward to seeing the UE3 stuff on the PS3, now that I've seen it I kinda wished I hadn't (with the exception of UT3).
and no mouse/keyboard function on the 360
OC ShockValue you forgot the one thing that makes the PS3 version superior, User Created content. Epic already said the 360 version won't have User created content and that they are working to improve PS3 user content.
Nobody plays that game online man.. Nobody uses Mods for that game either trust me.. IF you dont believe me then go buy the game and take a look..
I rented the game for ps3 and for the life of me could not see how anyone could say this game is better looking than Gears. The game looked and felt rushed.
buy new glasses. if you believ that gow looks better than ut3 you should go to a doctor.
he siad ut3 looking better ! not the other why around. and i agree btw whats your ps3 gamertag oh dont have one thats what i thought
I see quite fine thank you. The best looking console game to date is Uncharted. So you guys are now saying that UT3 is the best looking game after that? wow....
2) Gears of War
3) Call of Duty 4
Maybe Im misunderstanding what you're saying but if you want to know my psn ID its kingkongjay. Its also the same for xbox live so if anyone wants to run some warhawk for ps3 or cod 4/halo for 360 go ahead and add me.
I doubt if it sells well on the 360 thought....wonder when we find out.
Hahaha, no. What they are saying is, "the 360 version will be so much better since the engine is more advanced because of Gears 2 development, and because we actually had time to finish it without trying to rush the crap PS3 version alongside the PC version at the same time." See? Easy. But I agree, I don't think it will sell all that well either. What with Gears pwning the hell out of any UT game. But it's nice of Epic to try. Why not? One less PS3 exclusive is all I care about.
The pc version when released was a sham... they really made it console friendly, but didn't retain any of the good features, especially the UI of the previous UTs... Not sure if a patch fixed the horrible UI though, haven't played it for a while after finding the interface was so hard to work with
Epic need to sort their junk out, as someone else posted it's the lack of user friendly features and usual content that's missing. Epic have so much spin these days it makes you wonder if they'll ever get it right again. I'm actually pretty happy with UT3 but do see a lot of usual things missing, I wouldn't fault the console version though as that's taking the cheap excuse out. Look at their making of video, they're harping on how great the game is yet now that people have parted with their money they start saying it's half pie rubbish they'd liked to have done more with. Mark Rein needs to put a sock in it too pre release, the guy spins off so many never seen or severly altered features it's not funny. GG Epic, you'll be joining the ranks of idsoftware if you keep rubbishing on your fan base.
You cant even F***** TALK in the game..
I play the game alot.. NOBODY uses mods..
NOBODY really even plays online..
Almost every room has ZERO people playing..
@ post 4.1
Shut your mouth.. who are you to tell me what im a fan of.. I DID buy it for PS3 right? Thats more then what MOST other sony fans can say.. So i did my part.. did you?
So back on topic.. IF the 360 version has CHAT function, unlike the PS3 version (that i purchased 4.1).. it will be more team based and organized..
People run around on the PS3 version like idiots because there is NO COMMUNICATION..
The only thing Chat would do is increase the amount of racial slurs, swear words, and annoying banter. Out of all the hours I have played on the 360, there has been no teamwork in Halo 3, no teamwork in CoD 4, and there will be no teamwork in UT3. Just the other day, a whole group of people in a CoD 4 game were not using chat to work together. They were using it to bash a gay guy! Stop pulling sh!t out of your ass. Console gamers are not known to be team players. And people do play mods and if you want to play a mod that isn't currently being played, host the game yourself, just like the PC version! Sigh. Whatever man. If you want to buy the 360 version, go ahead. Just don't pull sh!t out of your ass. Though I have to agree that parts of UT3 did feel rushed. The non inclusion of Assault, arguably one of the best modes from UT2004 were one of these instances.
LOL okey buddy.. So you dont like Chat Functions in your shooting games.. I guess YOU lose overall.. Or you get made fun of alot.. What if i want to have a match with friends? Ever think of that? Im not tryna call them on the phone while playing warfare.. So PLEASE shut your mouth.. i got this game on day 1 and have played enough to tell you.. UT3 NEEDS CHAT..
Wow this would never happened on the 360 - you can't have an online play without chat every multiplayer game has voice comm. in it by default as it is one of the requirements as is unified friends list and cross game invitations.
To the people above saying they don't like voice chat - you must not have enough friends to play with then and btw voice chat is absolutely essential in team based shooters as is the only way to coordinate with your team.
Obviously people with only ps3 have no idea what a real online (Live) is about.
So after all the boasting about this game and the timed exclusivity you got a gimped title that don't even have a voice com. and no one is playing it online WTF ??
You make it sound like it's a problem with the PS3, it's not even though I'm sure you'd like it to be by the sounds of things. Epic didn't include it for some reason, many other titles do. One thing about posters like yourself who are obviously biased, is that it's usually envy or fear that makes people comment like you do. Good to know the PS3 has you so worried you'll spend what seems like any opportunity to try and slag it.
I never said I wasn't biased.
Not having a voice communications in an online multiplayer game IS a problem btw.
All online mulitplayer titles on 360 have a voice chat on top of other features that the PS3 is lacking, so what is your point ??
i wish i would have knew there was no voice chat 2 days ago. I bought UT3 for the PS3 because I couldnt wait any more. but ANYBODY that says this games looks better than gears has obviously NOT played gears! the movie parts of the game looks fantastic, but the actual game play, NOT SO MUCH!! an whats with the team deathmatch with the blue an red colored characters, you cant even see the detail in the character with that!! the game is fast which i liked about UT. but it did take about 13 trys before i actually got into a match. overall the game is ok, but now i fell i should have WAITED for the 360 version!!
Remeber how in gears you can't tell when cut sceen ends and gameplay begins :)
Re 10.0 It's called team colours, from a distance you want to see a persons team/not their detail. If you look you'll see that this colour fades off as you get closer and you're able to see full detail, I actually thought this was a brilliant take on teamskins/brightskins without things looking bad. Props to Epic for doing things that way, very cool feature. As for the GoW thing, I have played it and I don't see it looking any better than UT3. Structure is different in the design of levels with GoW being able to wander off into being there simply for aesthetics. Not something you are able to do too much of in a true MP game. Out of the two titles I'd prefer UT3, but really that's apple and oranges because they're totally different games. Re: 10.1 That's fairly bog standard tradition these days and has been since the N64, doesn't mean the cut scenes are any better for it.
The graphics quality (which was very high) didn't change from the cutsceen to gameplay in GoW.
Re: 10.3 Not sure what your point is as it brings nothing new, I've played both games (unlike yourself). Gears uses the same assets for its cut scene, woah holly cow... it's not a new concept. UT3 has higher quality versions for its cut scenes, both compared to GoW and the gameplay inside UT3. So what is your point again?
F*** all this GOW comparison crap.. They are both great games.. They just better gave that damn chat workin on 360.. Thats all i haveta say about that
