Apparently, to make up for the lack of user-generated content, Epic has thrown in a few exclusive bits to the Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament III. Oh, and the disc will also contain a sneak peek at Gears of War 2.
who cares mods are 100x better
I agree, but at least they are throwing 360 owners some kind of bone. I thought it was funny the line "I’ll be the judge of how thrilled I am about your game, thanks." Ripten makes me laugh.
The real question is ... who is chomping up all that bandwith??
mods are fun but DAMN i wish i had split screen!!!!! great news for a great game!
Nope don't need split screen. If you want to play against me on UT3 you must buy another system and the game.
at least they are giving an incentive to buy the game. Splitscreen and Gears 2 preview are good additions.
The real question is why didn't the PS3 die? oops Sony Does It Again and Again
It would be cool if it was a GoW2 demo. Now that the MGS4 hype is over lets focus on GoW2.
Or more precisely the showdown between GeOW2 and Resistance 2. It's inevitable.
GoW2 came out last march!
i made a comment on this article on riptens website (under Guy Incognito) about the acronyms and i got blasted from a person dubbed "360fan" and the author of the article Dan Landis. Dan says and i quote "I’ve never seen anyone in the history of forever abbreviate Gears of War like GeoW. You’re crazy, Guy." So i went on to explain how the video game media coined the acronym GoW for God of War, and all the rest that goes with that story.
I don't think God of War has the sole rights to GoW, and it didn't look like he blasted you, just disagreed.
I think of Geometry Wars ...cuz it's like my "crack".
"Cliffy Blaznats will also offer some color commentary on an exclusive, as yet unseen video preview of the upcoming Gears of War 2." That guy never misses a chance to get some camera attention. If that isn't incentive enough to pass on this game I dunno what is. LOL
EPIC said they will have mods in, whatever it takes (probably just in DLC packs, where they choose the best of the best). I'm not getting the game anyways, but I played it at a friend's who has PS3 and you can barley get into a match, and don't even start on modded matches, those are next to impossible to start a good match up on.
Welcome to the PSN network.
like 95% of ut3 owners have no clue that mods exist let alone how to install them. you'd be suprized how many gamers lack basic reading coprehension skills.
DLC packs of pre-made mods are unlikely. Even with the tools being Epics, any maps or mods are property of whoever made them, so they'd have to clear it with numerous people just to get these maps and character mods and what not. Too much logistically to think about.
anyone play quake warz demo yet?
yeah... it sucks azz.
someone will reproduce it with a mod tool and will put it for the PS3 user download
...and get sued by EPIC. :o
this is a buy for me, for the co-op. If they really wanted to push this game, they should have included a demo for gears 2 or the extra pc chapters from gears 1.
only good thing about this game and ive played it on the ps3 (garbage game) is the gears of ar 2 footage.
no mods = don't buy
"who cares mods are 100x better" sooo put them up your arse : )
any map 360 gets someone will just mod it for the ps3 im not sure if i read right but i dont think splitscreen will be exclusive most likely a patch for the ps3 one
the all important MODS didn't help sell the game on ps3, even with MODS the game has had miserable sales on the ps3, ha ha I don't expect it to do a whole lot better on 360, personally I'm just done with UT games, still some enjoy them, the multiplayer is pretty good, and of course split screen is a nice bonus so it should have decent sales on the 360, nothing spetacular, but my money is waiting for Gears2, Epic can keep this one. JOY
because of split screen i will need to buy it for my kids. They love to play against each other.
And you like to play solo

You are laughing at the PS3 version? Why? I think I'd take mods and k/b & mouse support over splitscreen and 'exclusive content' any day of the week. Guess thats just me though... STilll, props to Epic for giving 360 owners something extra to make up for the limitations imposed by Microsoft.
Mods > All. There is nothing like getting and endless stream of free content.
