From the article:
''Responding to a thread on the official Epic Games forums regarding a rumored May release for the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament III, Epic's Mark Rein responded that no release date has been set.''
No doubt about that, but the real question is will it have mods?
It would suck if they didnt put in the mod support. The least they can do is put pre-existing mods on xbl or something....dont get any ideas MS, i meant for them to be free.
True. I have another worry too. Will there be room for it? The multiplayer FPS genre seems kinda saturated on the 360.
actually not really. UT3 will still have its fans. UT3 won't appeal to all shooter lovers but the frantic gameplay will appeal to some. IMO UT3 is a stand out shooter. At least stand out enough to separate itself from the rest of the herd
I get your point, and I agree somewhat but think the biggest audience for games like UT3 are on the PC. Gears of War 2 isn't that far away either. Not the same type of game, but similar in many ways and also a big multiplayer title. The next multiplayer FPS title I'll be picking up is Battlefield: Bad Company.
mouse and keyboard?
I honestly would not be playing this game anymore if it weren't for the mods. Every new great mod breathes some more life into this game.
Perhaps they can use XNA Community to distrubute mods.
The community could manage them, and they wouldnt need an extra "distribution method".
Nice and easy.
Epic better add a lots of extra content to it
Where? It won't fit on a DVD9. I remind you that a multiple disc solution wouldn't work on a multiplayer (mostly) game =(
It seems Epic didn't put much effort into this UT, they have much bigger things on their plate =)
Epic tried but where blocked by MS on the Mod issue.
cant wait to see a heavenly sword mod for UT3 on 360. uriko has nice tits
Sorry but the 360 version doesn't have mod support.
it's Nariko,not Uriko.
hahaha so many errors in one comment.
LOL what's even the point in porting UT3 for 360 when it doesn't even have mod support? www.ut3mod.com ^ This website shows all the free stuff PS3 owners have been getting since the release of UT3 on PS3. We already have over a 100 maps, tons of character skins, tons of mutators, different game modes, and etc. Not to mention our version shipped with over 40 maps. Sorry but the content in the 360 version will be laughable in comparison to the PS3 version. It's too late for 360.
Mod support isn't necessary. The game will be great on its own.
Not really I would not play a UT3 with out mod support thats just not right.
The last I heard MS said that mods would have to be put through the publishers server to test them, which is better but not as great as the PS3 version.
LOL @ 360 version. Doesn't even have mod support. What a waste.
So why hold out hope for the 360 except for the fact it will look and run better on the 360.
Unreal Tournament III PS3
Midway 257,534 total sales
The fact that the 360 version will NOT run better than the PS3 or PC versions / lacks TOO MUCH content makes it the inferior version by default.
yeah, cus those vgchart numbers you quote say so much right? Look and run better on the 360.....lawman, do you ever stop kidding yourself? Talkin nonsense just because you're mad your system might not get mods. You can't be no more than like 14 years old at best. Thank god THIS particular bot (Lawman) is constantly banished to the open zone. At least SOME of your fellow bots have SOME sense dude. You...not so much lol
Looks like the PS3 fanboys are in here making excuses trying to suggest a loss *by default* fearing the 360 version's going to be better.
This is what it looks like to me when tons of PS3 fanboys flood in trolling this thread for a game thats been on their console for 5 months. Its old to PS3 fanboys yet they're acting rabidly like the game has not yet relesed on the PS3. Advances have been made to the engine don't expect the same product *by default*. Both URT3 and Gow 2 will help set new bars along with many other 360 titles.
Aren't we callin the kettle black mart? Let's not get started on callin you out on all the ps3 new you tried to [email protected]
...i wish it had Blu-ray and didn't get RRoD every 5 minutes"!!! ;-D
http://www.computerandvideo... "Worst case scenario is, we port them and we put them through certification and we put them up as downloadable content," Rein added."
I've seen it played on the PS3 and looks boring with flat graphics. Gears of War is the way to go.
Ahahahahahahaha funny kids. Oh Wait UT3 Is a PS3 Port to 360!? AHAHAHAHAHAHA ! Epic has to trim this game HUGE to Fit on dvd9 and work on a Inferior Console, but It kool Just take off your glasses and it wont look so bad. And For the Bots You Kids Did READ that Mark Said Hands Down UT3 on PS3 LOOKS WAAY beter then GEARS on Xbox 2 and u can Dreasm all u want that he was LYING!> Have fun with those Mods... oh! wait you cant! and most likely NEVER will unless M$ breaks its own Rules hahahahahahahaha!
"Now The Bots Luv UT3 again!?" considering sony purchased the exclusive xbox fans have not had a chance too hate or like this game... "And For the Bots You Kids Did READ that Mark Said Hands Down UT3 on PS3 LOOKS WAAY beter then GEARS on Xbox 2 and u can Dreasm all u want that he was LYING!>" its called kissing the ass of your targeted demographics...as in he said that too hype up you droids..which didnt quite work out considering the game is languishing at 250k after 16 weeks on the charts... "Have fun with those Mods... oh! wait you cant! and most likely NEVER will unless M$ breaks its own Rules hahahahahahahaha!" Looks like microsoft will be breaking those rules.... http://www.zimbio.com/Stree... from what I have read from the ut3 message boards is that the game is still farked up...but coming on this website I have seen people saying theres no problems whatsoever with online which leads me to belive some people like to give the impression that all is well with the ps3 and their games...pretty sad when people do this to have more people to play online with.
Isnt that what some of the delusional xbots claimed over a month ago?
It's funny you mention that... Seeing how pretty much ALL the games you ps3 fanboys "Swear" is coming out at a certain time, they did not.. and you are STILL wait.......................ing . =] t-0_ot-
The inferior version of Unreal Tournament III will arrive on XBox 360 sometime after Gears of War 2. Keep waiting Microslaves, keep waiting.
You PS3 douche bags know all too well how to do that. Snipe deez nutz
i need for lessons for waiting.huh while i wait i might watch some blue rays or maybe just spend my whole day on N4g.is that what i should ps girls
HAHAHA.. and your the one telling "xbots" to.... Wait? That's a joke........ right? hahaha moron. t-0_ot-
Wow, Dark Sniper really lobbed that one to hit out of the park. I was going to say the same thing, but you three beat me to it! LOL, Dark Sniper, what a douche.
Like how your waiting for the FULL version of gran turismo 4 instead of a blown up demo...or how about how your waiting for a single player component in warhawk or even socom...yeaaa you droids are the masters of waiting.
360 version will be better.
cant compare 512mb of video(xbox 360) card to 256mb video card(ps3).
much better textures will be on the 360 version.
UT3 is not very good imo. I wish epic would just let us know about Gow 2 I want some footage.
Yea gears is a greater game. However UT3 was their bread and butter franchise. They can't just leave it behind for GOW2. GOW is a fantastic game with inovations in game play and graphics i hope they have some more gameplay innovations in 2 as well
It's basically just the best twitch-shooter out there, lol :P
Sonarus I like Gears, because I like 3rdPS's and cover systems. Gears and GRAW is why I got an Xbox to start with. But innovative? In gameplay and graphics? C'mon. The only innovative thing was the reload mechanism. Gears is like Linsy Lohan. Its pretty to look at and you can have a lots of fun with it but there's nothing special or particularly intelligent there. PS I'm not picking on Gears, I did buy an unreliable console to play it. Here hoping G2 has abit more of those innovations to it.
UT3 has the whole cast of Gears its called All Cogs mod. It also has the 3rd person view mod called action cam. No cover system mod yet though.
UT3 has the best looking sci fi levels ever seen in a game IMO. Not to mention the best mapmakers have done some pretty maps too.
Gears has got the better single player Hands down though. UT3 single player is tacked on.
Its because your 360 is a closed network! That means you guysd get none of the sweet mods from ut3mod.com!
Closed Network? What? Ever heard of XNA?
Right. Because you know the contract details between Epic & MS.
EA (amoungst others) run their own servers for Xbox 360 games. Xbox LIVE is as flexible as it needs to be.
You dont know when, how or why things happen in the back-end for Xbox 360 games, so dont pretend you do.
Is http://www.forzamotorsports... or http://www.bungie.net/Onlin... look "closed" to you? Heck, you can write XNA games and use LIVE right now if you like.
You're FUD == fail.
kick major a$$. The crysis guy is wicked.
i think i speak for some when i say who cares about this game anymore
Ill bet you wouldnt be saying that if it were better on the 360.
i know i speak for many when i say who cares about what you care about.
Sucks to be Sony for paying for exclusive rights to a game that PS3 owners didnt buy because they were too busy expanding their Blu-Ray portfolio.
390,000 is pathetic.
Dont worry Epic. 360 owners will be glad to support your company with a million plus in sales. We had no problem waiting for a superior version both in terms of graphics and online gameplay. Plus our controller is much more suited for a fps anyways.
Actually, the Unreal franchise was never about sales. It was about mod support in the community, which Epic Games takes a close look at to see what kind of talents are out there. Plus it gives them new ideas for any upcoming projects. However I would agree that UT3 sales could have been better anyway. What killed it was the whole unknown release date, plus no advertisements AT ALL, and being overshadowed by many other games in november.
I love how 360 fanboys act as if all games sell MILLIONS on their console. Wasn't Blue Dragon created by some of the masterminds behind FF games and it didn't even sell 500,000 copies. If I had the ignorant mentality that some people seem to, (obviously not implying you at all) I could say if it isn't a westernized game, it won't sell on the 360.
I could even support that by looking at all of the blockbuster titles in the XBOX library. What game has hit 4 million for MS that wasn't a shooter? Since you like VGchartz, GTA: San Andreas sold what, 2.22 million on XBOX and 15.4 million on PS2...I bet it would have sold more if it was a shooter. Just look up the top 20 highest selling games and MS doesn't see any light. However, if you check by genre, they do have the highest selling FPS of all time: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... But you know, I'd only be saying crap like that if I was ignorant.
**If you don't like the Blue Dragon example, go take a look at your top twenty highest rated games and tell me which one hits four million and wasn't a shooter. An ignorant person would say, "Enjoy developing shooters for the MS, that's all XBOX owners will really buy."
THIS IS THE WORST UT OF THE SERIES ULL NOTICE THIS GAME HAS VANISHED LIKE IT WAS NEVER REALESED NO 1 is playing this game on the pc /ps3 cause it a really bad game i played it on pc and was amazed how unfinished this game seemed i will never by it hwy wud it rainbow six veags is a bettter game i wont compare it to gesrs /halo3/cod4 they are on a defferentleague to ut3
"Actually, the Unreal franchise was never about sales. It was about mod support in the community, which Epic Games takes a close look at to see what kind of talents are out there."
Is there _any_ attachment to reality here? 390,000 sales is _TERRIBLE_. Assuming $60 per sale, thats less than $25 Million.
After retailers, licenses, publishers, advertising -- how much of that do you think goes to support ongoing development?
If Epic doesnt bring this game to the core gamer market (Xbox 360), they're going to loose money on UT3.
All your nonsense about what "UT3 is 'about'" (in your mind) is nonsense if Epic doenst _sell_ any copies of UT3.
I have yet to see a mod worth even trying. Yeah the character mods are cool but pretty much useless. I wonder if anybody is trying to mod entire games with map design and actually be good. Than I'll be jealous. But I prefer to see footage of GOW2 than UT3.
Here are the good mods About 62 maps. Action cam (changes the games to 3rd person Gears like camers ) Jetpack (you can fly) Increaced gore Freeze ray (weapon mod) All over deathmatch (makes all maps accessable for deathmatch) Unlimited ammo (comes in a mutator pack) And of course the character mods. There is a lot more at ut3mod.com. If you havent got any mods yet and you have this game I would suggest going there because it really changes the game experience.
If you're buying UT3 for the mods... Microsoft's Live policy's going to prevent mods from seeing the light of day on 360, unfortunately.
Well seeing as how you don't have a PS3, you wouldn't have the slightest clue on any mods that are out. You won't ever get to play them. You only look at a few screenshots on the web and think to yourself, they're not worth playing. But how would you know? You never played it. And don't give me the whole "Oh well I played it at my friend's house and it sucks" routine. Tired of hearing that. And you'd be blind to see that having FREE mods is an excellent thing to have. Just because microsoft won't allow it, doesn't mean it sucks. Grow up.
"If you're buying UT3 for the mods... Microsoft's Live policy's going to prevent mods from seeing the light of day on 360, unfortunately. "
And you know this _how_? You know what MSFT's contracts with Publishers/Developers are?
Please stop talking out your arse.
GIMME MY MODS!!! Stop censoring every thing Microsoft!!!
XNA. XNA Community. Halo 3's Forge. Foraz 2 ( http://www.forzamotorsport....
You're characterization of Microsoft's relationship to User Generated Content is vastly inaccurate.
UT3 is the _only_ avenue for UGC on PS3.
Please dont be so darn foolish.
You're seriously trying to compare XNA Creators Studio/Forge/Forza 2 to Open system Mod Support? Are you seriously that Blind?? Buy a clue man. You cannot make your own maps in Halo 3, only slightly different variations of them. XNA Creators Studio you need to pay for. And I don't even know why you threw Forza 2 in there, maybe to make me laugh harder? I'd also tell you to respond but wait, Have you run out of bubbles?! OH NOES!! Guess you can't make horrible comparisons on the internetz nao. Think about what you say next time.
There are all different kinds of User Generated Content. And, right now, there are many venues for UGC game content on Xbox 360.
There is only UT3 mods on PS3. Sure, they are different.
But we dont know what method of mod distribution will come on Xbox 360. I dont know. You dont know.
Unlike you Blu-Ray movie lovers we 360 owners will actually buy this game with it's enhanced graphics and superior integrated online play. I hear Alvin and the Chipmunks just released on Blu-Ray. Better go snatch it up since you have no games worth buying. Hey I got 7 ignores and 1 bubble taken away from the SDF on this site in the past week. You [email protected]
WAIT B3YOND for 4D B!tches.
suuuure ya do :) those questionable "enhanced graphics" go real well with a nice helping of NO mods :)
I've been playing this alot today. You bots are lucky your at least getting sloppy seconds. Its a great game.
^^^^^ HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAAH Disguised 8th account of Power of Green having another meltdown. Bro I've already been playing this 4 months. Its AWESOME on PS3 and I've been owning noobs all day while talking crap. You console is losing. Its half the price of PS3 ans literally FLOPPING in sales. No one cares what u think. Soon PSN will be as good or posssibly better tahn Xbox Live FOR FREE.
You have and will lose.
