Rumour Crushing: Unreal III Not Cross Platform

At 4:13 on the afternoon of August 3rd, Epic's Mark Rein, posting to his own forum, stated the following:

"I checked with Steve Polge and he said that YES we are supporting keyboard and mouse in Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3. He is confident we are doing it in a way that will be balanced without feeling "gimped" for either side. We'll also allow people to choose whether or not they want to allow mixed controller vs. keyboard/mouse games or not."

Some 'sources' have now managed to morph this into the 'fact' that Unreal Tournament III will be cross-platform PS3 and PC.

Strange, because at 4.29pm on the same day, Rein actually pointed out that:

"Cross platform play isn't decided yet. Please keep this thread about keyboard and mouse for PS3. There are other threads on cross platform."

The story is too old to be commented.

I hate to say i told you so. Who knows ? it might make it in after all but it has not been confirmed.

Hatchetforce3941d ago

I'll be the first to say it.


Here is a cluepon so you can get a discount. All you did was PROMOTE the rumor. You referenced the very post that gave rise to the rumor in the beginning. Crushing the rumor would be Mark Rein posting that there would be no cross platform play period. Instead you quote yesterday's news.

Nice try at stabbing Sony fans? No it was a poor try and all you did was help support the rumor. You get a gold star for running the wrong way down the field.

It wasn't that hard to prove you know with Flak's response about it.

Although I agree with Merc3nary about PSU not very reliable when even PSU themselves said FFXIII is not PS3 exclusive and all.

Some people just got kicked in their balls on this one.

Marona3941d ago

Are you saying it's impossible now?

djt233941d ago

lol lol

Are you saying it's impossible now?
to me i dont think so but it could be different reason why they cannt do it

Odion3941d ago

i was going to say an honest mistake but it really really wasn't

Lumbo3941d ago (Edited 3941d ago )

IS it only me, or is there a difference between "Its not decided yet" to "Unreal III Not Cross Platform"

I would suggest to change the topic to "[Rumor control]UT3 cross Platform play NOT confirmed"

Also, why is PC gaming missing from the channels, its sure PC-gaming related

TriggerHappy3941d ago

Too late, once a submission gets through, you cant report it anymore..Sucks huh ?

Lumbo3941d ago

sure suxx, cause i prefer fitting titles and full channel list to gimped stuff. Its not earth shaking though.

Marona3941d ago

I have to agree with Lumbo though, most people in here just read the damn headline. It should be changed.
