The PlayStation 3 verison of Unreal Tournament 3 will feature unlimited maps, mods, and skin downloads by using a PC editor and then moving the data to your PS3 through a memory stick.
man, I love skin mod...
why bother with this at all on the ps3... i mean if you have to do all the modding on yor pc anyways why not just get the cheaper (pc games are 99% of the time like $10 less) pc version that will look better, play better, and have a larger community to play with? i think you fanboys too often forget epic is a PC game company first... thats where they were born. game systems will always be second.
my pc is not that good, and I use most of the space for movies and comic books
Because to run this game like it will run on the 360/ps3, you would need at least a $2000 pc you dolt.
Not everyone has a PC capable of running UT3 as well as or better than the PS3. Same situation with Bioshock.
I don't game on my PC. I also don't plan on spending the money to play games on my PC. I'm more then happy to play this on my PS3 and am really stoked about the modding features.
i see an article a few months back that epic was gona use 2 discs 1 for the game and 1 for the map editor so u wont need to buy the pc version so lets hope this is true
If that is your REAL name! I love Epic...and I always have. UT04' STILL beats the pants off of Halo ANY day. I do believe, however, that they're doing THEIR best to get the PS3 version to look as good as humanly possible! It's their main platform. I think they'll be ohkay! You can also mod on your PS3. It's not too hard if you either use Linux or a crack of XP. Both have applicatons for modding...and a PS3's equiped to handle it. Seriously, not hard. GOW will be better on PC...yes...but that's because they waited. I seriously doubt they'd make the PC version look better than the PS3 version. I'm just saying.
I agree for the most part, except for you saying UT3 will look better on PS3. When the DX10 patch for UT3 is released for Vista users, it'll look even better. Sure, the performance won't be too hot, but my point is still valid. All Nvidia needs to do is update their crappy drivers! Then, UT3 will look simply outstanding with DX10 support without a FPS hit.
they already have it looking "better" on the PC...the interview from E3 with one of the Epic developers had him going on about the PS3's optimization...he basically said all the high end visual effects would be intact (basically referring to what you would need a DX10 card to see on a PC)...but the PC will trump it in resolution...which was pretty much a given...most DX10 cards by christmas will have more VRAM than a PS3/360 has total... The PS3 version has said to have been pursposely slowed as well...which may irritate some fans...but Epic says they did it in order to make the game playable with a controller (while he didn't touch on the mouse/keyboard for PS3 stuff that had been talked about last spring)...the game will most likely not be 1920 x 1080 for the PS3 version also, being that it is said to be locked at 60fps...possibly, but with the amount of visual carnage this game is going to bring, I am pretty sure 720p will be the native resolution...
The only reason we haven't seen a well performing DX10 game is because they were DX9 games with some DX10 features tacked on post-production. We still haven't played a game built with DX10 from the ground up like UT. Oh an if you think the PS3 version will look better than the PC version your just being delusional. It will also play better IMO, because it won't have to accomodate for slow gamepads.
dx10 is over rated, OGL v3.0 is the same thing, do you see anybody drooling for that? just because everybody is saying omg omg dx10 doesnt nessecarily mean its going to be better, go read the reviews dx10 is sloppy at best, you loose soo much performance over hardly any improvements in games such as Lost Planet.
Cost of the game: $60 Cost of PSN: $0 Cost of mod, skin, etc,...: $0 Cost of fun for game with Gears of War-quality graphics from the same maker: Priceless!! There are really truly somethings that money cannot buy!! EDIT: Hmmm, I wonder what could have caused someone to disagree with my post so freakin' quick? Oh, I get it...it's the "Gears of War-quality graphics".
He can't go a single day without lambasting positive Playstation news. O well, more mods and maps for me! =]
Freaking Fact!!!!!!!!! and best on PS3. nuff said now people give me back my bubbles.
This game will be the ultimate online game this year, no halo no warhawk
I agree that Halo can't touch Unreal as far as franchisee...If owned a 360 and UT3 was coming out this fall also...i wouldn't get halo 3 until 08 at the earliest...and if UT3 is as good as its older brothers were on the PC, I probably wouldn't get it at all... but Warhawk is way to different to lump into that...Warhawk is great...I will definitely be getting both on release...
I was waiting for such confirmation, meaning we'd be allowed mods without buying the PC version. Thank you, Epic =)!
Is the 360 version going to have modding?
Microsoft bans users from Xbox Live if they use modified content on Xbox Live.
Didn't know that, that's crazy. So there SOL then? Strange that they'd let that happen...
You see, modding has been a huge problem on Xbox Live since 2002, it only got worse when Halo 2 launched. You had modders pretty much cheating every single game, including Halo 2. I agree with Microsofts stance on banning modders/cheaters from Online gaming. But you guys have fun, hopefully the PSN network won't have idiots cheating online.
Thankfully I belong to an honest gaming community so I never have to worry too much about cheaters. :-) I'm sure there will be people who abuse the modding in UT. Glitching was pretty bad in RFOM in the beginning and I'm sure there are other games out there where people are abusing things. Always has, always will. :(
Ok, Resistance made me a FPS fan so basically I'm still a noob in the genre. Lately, I've been hearing nothing but praises for the UT franchise so I'm looking forward for this game. Here's where I'm a noob. I know maps and skins, but what are mods? Help, anybody?
Mods: "Mod or modification is a term generally applied to computer games, especially first-person shooters and real-time strategy games. Mods are made by the general public, and can be entirely new games in themselves. They can include new items, weapons, characters, enemies, models, modes, textures, levels, story lines and game modes. They also usually take place in unique locations. They can be single-player or multiplayer. Mods that add new content to the underlying game are often called partial conversions, while mods that create an entirely new game are called total conversions." ^^ Here have a bubble too
Charlie to the rescue again, huh? lolz. Wow, if that's what mods means, then I'm more excited for this game than before. Thanks for the help again, my friend. Here's a bubble for you too.
but there will be some type of filter system. There will be games where mods are not allowed also. It shoulnt turn into a modfest. Lets hope epic do as well with the mods as they did with the pc UT's. Maps are all good but dodgy weapons like a rocket launcher that can shoot 4 rockets without the charge is a BIG NO NO u know EDIT bubbles for charlie for helping Rythrine without bubble envy.
No editor with the PS3 version of the game? Kinda defeats the purpose of all this doesn't it? Basically everyone is gonna be held hostage by all those PC users out there, hoping they'll bring over extra content. Game looks great and I'm sure it's gonna play great but this kinda dampers my feelings about it. Atleast allow us to create levels and skins..
The rumor is that the PS3 version will ship with the application also...I guess to be used on the PC (although a severely stripped down linux app could be tailored for the PS3...not sure how taxing the process is on the system though)... but yeah I agree...if you have to buy the PC version just to have the application for modding...its all somewhat pointless...but I am sure Epic is aware of that, they are looking at this as a huge selling point...I just hope the application doesn't take the same kind of PC that it takes to run UT3 in the first place...My GMA 950 equipped Vaio business notebook never really had the swingin' set for any newer games...plenty of RAM and a decent processor...just no dedicated GPU, not sure if the application will need much attention from that though...
Well this is definately the best console version of the game. Nothing any later version do (other than allow mods), (if we do see later version,) can make it as good as this. Unlimited content. The only thing I would ask, is that the editor is a free download. It might be already, I dont know but if I have the PS3 version I should be able to download the editor for my PC to create mods with. A Halo level, HA, too funny.
an online community will develop for UT2007 and I will just grab mods there. in any case its great PS3 gets to use the mods as well, so even if there are somewhat of a chore to get I will deal with it. anyhow cant wait to play some unreal!
so epic said mods for pc and ps3 none 4 360. UT3 is #1 on my fps to buy list, #2 crysis #3 Killzone. Honestly though I hope they find ways to make Mods happen for both consoles and with out needing to use a pc to make them. I remember Timespliters on ps2 had mods , they should be able to make it happen on these next gen systems.
I sure hope there is mods for the 360 version but if not I'll be glad to just run around and shoot stuff.
this is going to be good
Well I heard somebody say that the 360 might look a lil bit better but unlimited maps, mods, and skins make the ps3 version thee version to get! I own both systems and will gladly get the ps3 version. ps. bubbles please! HAHA...busted! Since this site is run by rabid sony boys...a simple "good" comment on sony would probably shoot me with extra bubbles! But I got caught! Relax kid. I was just having a lil fun, dont take life so serious man. Oh well....ps3 still sucks ;)
You dont have a PS3. I've never called anyone a liar on this forum but you, are a liar. DarkKnight, or FirstKnight or whatever your name is, you an XBOT trying to suck up to get bubbles. In Australia we call a person like that an ANKLE, because they are lower than a c**t. If you guys dont believe me check his comments and tell me his not that douche we love to hate. If I'm wrong I will public apoligise but thats not likely. PS I am going to post this reply on every comment I see you do where you are pretending to like PS3 and then asking for bubbles.
my friend was showing me all the mods he had for oblivion. thought that was pretty sweet but i couldn't do it on my ps3 so kinda put it off but now i can do it on my ps3 and save the one's my friend makes on his pc....sweet.
Epic should include a copy of the editor on the Ps3 version as well but ill gladly buy both i dont care..
Epic is pretty smart. No built in PS3 level/mod/skin editor means that anyone who wants to make a mod/skin/etc. will have to buy the PC version as well. HOWEVER, if mods/maps made on the PC translate perfectly to the PS3, then all a user would have to do is download the map/mod/skin from any of the myriad of UT sites.
I've been saying, mostly to myself, since before the PS3 came out (you know, the old days) that it looked like the PS3 would supplant the Xbox as the hardcore gaming platform of choice. I've always thought that the Xbox was popular with the hardcore crowd because of the standard HD and what that allows mod-wise. It seems to me that Sony has taken a cue from the Xbox and made the PS3 the uber-platform for doing things with your console other than just regular old playing games (not that there's anything wrong with that) while the 360 has gone away from it's roots by not having a HD as standard hardware and having a generally more closed or less-mod-able architecture. Not that Sony wants anyone to "mod" per se, but with the ability put in a monster HD (without voiding your warranty) and install Linux it would seem that you could do all sorts of crazy things with your PS3 and still stay on the right side of the law (like you care, but still - warranty). Sorry that's a little off topic, but the modding thing made me think of it.
I hear what your saying about the ps3 and 360 on their stance to modding. This is good news for ps3 gamers. MS may change their stance should UT3 be a success who knows. Mods seem to give games extra longevity without the extra microtransactions that seem to be infesting games. ANY MODDERS. PLEASE REMAKE STALWARTZ XL and DECK 16 IF EPIC HAVENT DONE SO............. Cheers
You won't think mods are so wonderful when cheats infiltrate the game.Many of you that are console only players will not have experienced online cheating before.Believe me, it ruins the game.And if you think it won't happen, then think again.
In PC games usually you can only play online with people who are using the same mods as you.
You can download content. The PC only guys just have to regenerate it for a PS3 version. The tools should be in the PC version too, according to Epic. This is their major target with this feature I believe.
i seen an article a few months back that epic was gona use 2 discs 1 for the game and 1 for the map editor so u wont need to buy the pc version so lets hope this is true
Great news! UT3 is going to destroy every other game!
how many ps3 users take the time to wade through the endless crap that is user made mods,maps, and skins to find good ones then transfer over via memory stick and hope there isn't some sort of conflict that makes the map/mod/skin unplayable....ill still take geow or halo over ut where to win all you need is get the rocket launcher of which 5 spawn on most maps and just use that...ut has allways been super fast fragging that favors whos got the bigger gun....
m8 i used to build maps all the time and go thru the site and download map and mod all the time i ended with about 20 gigs worth then backed them up to dvd ..... so u have no valid point cos people can dl loads of maps and mod try em and if they dont like em then delete them if they like em and want to store them then back it up on dvd theres no hard task there was no mention about you xbox 360 users or any other users flaming now you come in and start on the ps3 ,why dont u just bugger off and go play ur hotbox and leave us lot to enjoy our ps3 theres allways goto be one ...whos an idiot and start a fight between the diffent consoles...u have a lame life
I wonder if this will include cheat mods.
unlimited maps ... like ... unlimited???
...be free, or will I need the PC game?
hasn't been specified yet...assume the PS3 version of the game will get you an editor of some sort...it will most likely run on a PC though...but it could be linux based or something, and install on the ps3...
I cant even post here without sounding like a raving fanboy. So im not going to. Bottom line is. This game is soo bought. And if I didnt own a PS3 this would be my reason for purchase. UNREAL TOURNEY 3 FTW !!!
UT3 is going to ruin my social life.
but I have a question, when did shooters become obsessed with vehicles?? There weren't any in the first one and it was a great game. Does anyone feel like all the vehicles are kind of annoying and distracting from being a shooter at all?
