A new trailer from Unreal Tournament 3 for xbox 360, coming this summer.
feels kinda old now...this game's been out for a couple of months...but maybe 360 owners will like it...who knows
I also think that with this much time they should've incorporated cross platform online play...that would've bring this game to a whole new level
how would they do cross-platform play since the ps3 version has mods?
Video quality is terrible
360 owners will get it non the less, they love shooters.
I know that's not saying much, but its true. I played it extensively for PS3 when it came out 6 months ago, and I got to say the weapon/vehicle/map/gametype selection puts halo to shame
One thing I do wonder though: will the 360 have mod support and mouse and keyboard support like the PS3?
The 360 doesn't have mouse support, it only has keyboard support, so no.
SUPPORT -Modding (Still in the dark) -Keyboard (Yes) -Mouse (No) so basically from what we know, we cannot play UT3 as if your on a PC with Modding support.
[email protected] I'd like some one to prove that Xbox 360 has mouse support seriously, can some one please show me a link to the non-existent mouse support that Microsoft themselves said they won't incorporate that would be great.
360 fans should be able to enjoy this, if there is modding of course
its a great game probably not so much without the mods and all, but the core gameplay still rocks
Not bothered really, PC demo wasnt much fun :/
Your xrod cant even handle mods hahahaha. x180 = FAIL!
It's funny how in all the videos they show people taking aim and hitting people but when I play it's always just flying by the seat of your pants mayhem. Just aiming in the general direction and trying to lead people as they are running hoping to hit them. Because of these I enjoy playing COD4 better. But enjoy to all the 360 owners that have been wanting this game.
its definitely a twitch shooter, even being slightly slowed down for the consoles...but yeah, the 'taking aim' stuff in the videos is almost hilarious...have the time when you kill someone, you barely even know who it was and what you shot them with...
its just run the hell around while firing as much as possible...I like it because of that...CoD 4 takes a different kind of attention, and in my opinion, takes more actual skill...Doing well in UT3 involves a whole lot more luck...and aside from crap camping and grenade spamming...Cod 4 doesn't...but I like it in the fact that everything feels much more balanced than CoD 4...I play both regularly, and would recommend UT3 to anyone that enjoys multiplayer shooters...
I don't even care about this game. Have it for PC, went right back to 2k4. The PS3 character mods are kickass of cloud, locust from gears, and master chief.
ii would imagine xbl would release mods as dlc
10 bucks for Master Cheif
damn i wish it was that slow some times to appreciate the scenary :) oh i got to download the 2d mod :)
edit: the 2d mod is [email protected]
no user mods, no thank you.
Just bought the PC version yesterday.
Only 30 bucks at Gamestop right now.
GO GET IT!
I can't wait for this to hit the 360, especially with the capabilities of 'live'. I've been playing on the PS3 w/mods...but will gladly take live's MP capabilities over mods.
i would hope that your post is sarcasm cause if it isnt id like to know what drug you are on.
You missed the boat on the 360 with this one. I hope you got all the sales you wanted from the PS3 and PC because I don't know one person who wants this old game now. You made your deal with $ony so enjoy.
Just scrap this game and focus on Gears 2. =)
How many total sales has this thing had?
Over a million, it really bombed eh? Fishhead. @ Below: So you just proved that it didn't bomb to yourself huh fishhead? Great. No matter what you say fishhead, you almost always have something retarded to say and it's pure comedy cold, like always; "You missed the boat on the 360 with this one. I hope you got all the sales you wanted from the PS3 and PC because I don't know one person who wants this old game now. You made your deal with $ony so enjoy. Just scrap this game and focus on Gears 2. =)" You think people won't buy this? What are you stupid? Xbox is BUILT around FPS games, and we both know now your gonna end up buying it, so cut the bullshit right now.
Did I say it bombed in my statement fishhead?
Learn some reading comprehension.
But from Kotaku March 12:
"Now Midway has announced that UT3 has sold 1 million copies. The catch? That figure includes both PC and PS3 titles. I think that at this point we can call it—Unreal Tournament is no longer a powerhouse franchise."
Couldn't of said it better myself.
EDIT: No, I am not going to buy it and although it would be funny to see it sell more on the 360 than both the PS3 and PC combined I really don't think this game is going to sell well on the 360.
PS3 sold 390,000 copies. I would consider that a bomb. I mean even Lair did better than that. Slowly remove your head from Sony's a$$ and think next time before you comment.
Mind showing a link for those alleged numbers? I'm just curious because both the sim exchange and the npd have this game on the verge of 846,000 units sold on the ps3
I stand corrected. PS3 total sales for Unreal Tournament III are up to 410,000. And actually it's ahead PS3 exclusives Like Lair, Warhawk, and Singstar.
Now before you descredit my link because it's VGChartz, post a link proving your numbers. Otherwise I am inclined to believe my source.
Note: I'm trying to be civil here...
http://www.thesimexchange.c... I don't have to discredit vghchartz because everyone knows how off their numbers are already. If you or anyone else wishes to put faith in their "numbers" then that's a person's choice. Also, Keep in mind that sim exchange gets their numbers based off of the npd. So vgchartz is FAR off. Besides, they said the 360 outsold the ps3 by more than like 140,000 in the U.S. in January. Yet when the official numbers came out it showed that it was the ps3 that outsold the 360 rather than what vgchartz showed. And the same happened for the february numbers. So people can accept vgchartz "facts" if they want. Note: I'm being civil too
I am out of bubbles. I think that niether one of us is right or wrong. You believe your sources I believe mine. Just so you know NPD is not 100% accurate either. To my knowledge they leave out a good percentage of retailers such as Walmart. I understand VGChartz is inaccurate but until somebody shows me a more credible source I will believe them over these other sites. And this is coming from somebody who has a hard time believing that the 360 price drop has had no effect on 360 sales at all and that a much more expensive console is continuing to game distance in that territory as VGChartZ claims...
As I said before, if someone wants to put faith in vgchartz "numbers" then that's their business. But the NPD is FAR MORE accurate than vgchartz.
From Midways Gamer Day: UT3 will not have mod support, but gets 5 extra exclusive maps, plus the 3 maps Epic released for free on the PS3. The 360 version will also feature 2 player split screen play. The 360 version will also have two new characters.
Microsoft REALLY needs to allow those mods It's great that they will have two new characters and five exclusive maps and two player split screen. But most of that can be negated by mods. The ps3 version already has a ton of new characters like samus, master cheif, kratos, cloud, and others thanks to mods. Not to mention some maps were also made by mods for the ps3 from the ut3 community. So even though the 360 version will have some added things initially, without the mods, they will seem like they hardly exist. Anyone that knows the Unreal games know it SURVIVES on the mods. That is the soul strength of the game. So Microsoft really needs to find a way to allow those mods
The 5 exclusive maps are kind of ridiculous. Over on a forum were a couple of mod makers hang out they already mentioned they would make the maps and bring them over to the PS3, most likely with improvements!
That right there is exactly why I said the 360 additions will be negated. It's just as you said, some mod will copy the maps and two characters right over to the ps3 and pc versions.
Just finished CTF-Ranel remake for PS3 and PC [link for D-Load on EPIC forums ;) ] would be nice to cook Ranel + future projects for 360 too.
why doesn't the 360 not have mods have they said it wont support mods?
yes they did Microsoft isn't keen on letting players get stuff without them paying up.
Mods where the hole point I bought the game on PS3
im meaning for ut3 360
That means you guys will have to pay for yor maps and they will cost 15 bucks while ours will be free!
I had it for PS3, it came & went.
The only reason I ever put this back in my PS3 is to check out the new mods.
Other than that, I kind of forget I have it. The mic support kind of sucked the fun out of online for me. I don't even know if they ever fixed it. That's how long it's been since I played.
i have ut3 for ps3 i was just wondering why 360 useres weren't getting them
Epic is saying that Microsoft is giving them a tough time about user generated content being distributed through xbox live (or something like that). I could be wrong though
Couple of questions about this game (I have little familiarity with any existing iterations of UT3, though I played UT and UT2 in the past): --Is it just online multiplayer, or is there a "campaign" mode to work through? --Can you set up a game that's just bots? (I used to do that a lot with Quake 3. I maxed the number of bots and set the kill limit to 500. Good way to relieve stress after a bad day). Just curious.
Yes to MP and campaign
Yes to playing with bots
All it consists of are the regular multiplayer maps with bots while you play capture the flag or team deathmatch. It's very repetitive and boring.
I finished it but only because I've never bought a game I didn't beat.
This game still isnt out on the 360? It got delayed by that much? Damn, I thought this game was out march 4th...guess I was wrong. Maybe there trying to get mods?
The PS3 version of this is awesome. It sold 400,000. only was released in EU like a month and a bit ago. They should of waited to release after X-mas. there was no hype IF you want a fun game get the PS3 version. it costs 39.99 now it was just reduced at Gamestop and amazon.com I'm sure the 360 build will have glitches for a while. More people will buy this after GTA and after MGS4, because those were system sellers. once people own their ps3's they'll see this gem for 40 bucks and be all like . YA I WANT some CHEEZY POOFS! i'd say it would be awesome is MS used live to sell DLC. however, i hope they would actually commision users who make them. cause otherwise thats a bastard thing to do for all the hard work ppl put into it. now.... EPIC.. where is the splitscreen you were hinting about!?
Don't even bother Epic, the hype for this game has gone down a lot, being that it's been released on the PC and PS3 a few months ago. Just give us Gears of War 2.
well it would have come to 360 but microsofts hatred for anything community driven means they wherent on board with the whole modding thing
All this anti-mod sentiment makes no sense to me. I think user generated content only enhances gameplay and drives dev. Look at all the mod's that came out of the HL source code: Counterstrike, Team Fortress, etc.
I don't know about anti-mod... but many of us don't think mod is that important... I've a PC gamer for ever... and I don't play mods... I rather play online with maps that are well balanced and created by the pros.... I would take a Map made by Epic over 10 created by non-developers... I play lots of PC games and many of them have mod tools... and the majority of pc gamers aren't adicted to mods...
Now, if microsoft figures a way to create mods and not cause problems... even Epic admits that mods can create problems and security issues.... If they can create a sandbox for these things I am ok with other people that like mods to enjoy them...
Also, I don't want what they did with the PS3 version where you cannot create the mods on the PS3... but you have to use your PC... they should allow modding on the console directly... Anyone wanting to create mods on the PS3 needs to have a high end PC...
I have a question for you...
Why is the Playstation community so pro Mod???
modding has become so important because it gives them something to talk against the xbox 360.... but I don't hear plans from any other game to have mods on the PS3... is Metal Gear going to have mods? KillZone 2? does any other game have mod on the PS3?
1 game on the PS3 has modding... if you are not a UT fan and hate the game and own a PS3 then the whole PS3 supports modding means crap...
I find it kind of dumb... anyone that care so much about modding in order to spend hours doing it... needs a high end PC to make these pS3 mods... why not just buy the PC version?
ohh and the numbers of copies the game sold compare to other PS3 games show you how important modding is to gamers... lol.
Do you realize that the games you mention like killzone 2 or metal gear solid 2 aren't MEANT to have mods. Those arent user community based games. Unreal tournament IS. It always HAS been.
i HOPE THEY ADD THIS TO THE PS3 VERSION THEN I WILL BUY IT
this game looks awfully familiar.... oh thats right, i been playing it since last year. no Mod support is like adding insult to injury... enjoy your 5 extra maps xbox, they'll be copied and then posted online for PS3 players to download in no time
The point being, there is no reason to BE anti mod. Instead you transformed this whole arguement into a PS3 rant! PS3/PC are 2 totally different communities, so it makes sense that people would want to take what they created on PC and bring to PS3 if not just to play w/ there friends w/o pcs.
This just reflects the close mindedness of M$, and their control over gamers. They don't want you to be able to use your own peripherals(bluetooth, HDD, WiFi, etc), they make you pay for online support and in return you get shiesty P2P networking, cant use an os, you can't even use a mouse, so it makes sense they wouldn't want you to have mods.
lol... did it every cross your mind that if I want to play games using a keyboard, a mouse, being force to intall games, being able to run an OS, and mods... I would just get a freaken PC... ohh freak... wait.. I already have a PC...
You see... existed for years and people purchased them for a reason... mouse and keyboard are not it... since you would need a desk and a surface for the mouse.. and nothing beats a computer desk when it comes to that...
What do I want from a game console that's attach to my TV? everything that I can do from my sofa.... Movies, games that I play without needing a desk... now that the xbox 360 has a mini-keyboard I don't mind a browser made for the console... movie streaming... picture viewing... allow me to communicate with friends, via messenger while playing a game, video chat, voice chat...
if I want to play a game using a keyboard I walk to my PC... I don't want my game console to be a PC the same way I don't want my PC to be a game console.... if that was the game I would just buy a PC...
I also don't want to play games on my PC that unless they use a keyboard and mouse.... I rather play those on MY HD TV...
Only reason why many of you xbox 360 haters want to mix things up is because of Sony's agenda about replacing the PC... but no thanks...
who on this site does not have a PC? why would I want my game console to be a PC....
and yeah.. it's not only microsoft... the wii too... there is a saying... Jack of all trades, master of none and the PS3 is a good example... you can install and OS yet you can't play any real game on it since Sony locked the GPU... yeahh.. I want a cripple computer over my PC that happends to have 8GB of ram...
The PS3 is not taking the place of the PC, its a way to link your PC to your tv to your surround sound. A media hub if you will. And the capability to use a mouse and a keyboard is only a plus. If you're such an avid PC gamer then you would know that a mouse is much more accurate than a control will ever be. That being said, I find it hypocritical that you own a 360 because you think it doesn't bite of a pc
If you would have taken that 400$ you spent on your Xbox and upgraded your pc it would smoke your 360, not to mention you could still play all the best exclusives for 360 on PC(Mass Effect, Bioshock, Gears, Halo, Forza). The PC version's have more features and they run and look better. PS3 is a much more unique exp., you dont see Motorstorm, Metal Gear, Resistance, Heavenly Sword, Killzone or any of those games going to PC.
That is a serious flaw in logic on your part.
Don't waste your time on him. Come one bladestar, how many baby rants have you posted today man? A good portion of the stuff you say doesn't even make sense.
HahahaHAHa. It has to come out in the summer cuz they know Gears in November is going to crush it. But, I suppose it's worth a rent.
no mouse support on the 360?? forget it!
