So begins a new era in online console gaming. Whatever else people want to say about Epic Games' PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3, it makes two undeniably noteworthy leaps forwards. The game supports both mouse+keyboard controls and user-created mods. Say what?! The game looks impressive and it somehow manages to deliver balanced gameplay despite offering a multitude of weapons, vehicles and other assorted pickups. But the PC-friendly capabilities - and hoped-for full-on cross-platform play down the line - represent a real step forward for online console gaming, which is a good thing for Epic as UT3 clearly still has a bit of work to do.
