"According to the following German magazine image, Unreal Tournament on the Xbox 360 is around 90% complete and due out sometime approximately around April next year."
if this to be true i might hold of buying it for the ps3 and get it for the 360.
Time will tell, tho this does sound right if epic and ms are wantin gears 2 out in november (which now seems more likely if this date was to be true)
The 360 Won't have Mods
Ass ive said all along UT3 I PLAYed the demo and its just a garabge game that ive never played again whne it comes out for the 360 ill have to be pretty bored to buy that crap game,graphics dont come close to gears of war not close game play is sooooo outdated the effects of the guns are garbage this game is a waiste of time if u ask me.
We know you dont like it because its better on the PS3. Stop trying to lie to us, your only lying to yourself. And Mark Rein already said UT3 looks graphically better than Gears of War.
your only saying that because it was released on the ps3 first and because its better on the ps3..
Jesus Ima skip on this game I dont want a outdated shooter with nice graphics just give me Gears of war 2 epic and keep this garbage.
I played the UT demo on PC and it was average. I was not a fan of their vehicles and how they worked and the limited weapons.
I definitely liked the fake death, halo 4 better include that.
Also, the 3 maps in the demo seemed like they were designed well.
Overall, I do not see unreal doing well, especially on xbox, owners are already spoiled with halo 3 and cod 4.
u think theres been 16/17 million 360's sond NOOOOOOO thats how much the wii has sold the 360 has sold 12.8 million and the ps3 8.9 million it will be at 9 million next week so if they keep going at this rae ps3 will have sold 18 million this time next year and the 360 will have sold 18/19 unless they get a big mover like gears of war 3 if u look at the sales u will c a huge spike when gears came out but when halo 3 came out it didnt move up sales coz every one who wanted a 360 would ave had 1 so the ps3 is actualy out selling 360 in EVERY REGION esept america and europe and japan is way beger than the USA especaly since russia is in europe well some of it so shut it unless u know what u're talkin about ps if u reply to this i wont reply bk i have more inportent things 2 do aka call of duty 4 online ps3 whoo hoo lvl 34 14 exe till lvl 35 add me PSN: Tupac724
to that shrimp boat dude...
umm 360 are getting mods, unreal said that they are making agreements with Microsoft
and also arnt the ps3 suffering from mods, impretty sure they suck a$$ on ps3
The PS3 version don't have mods, it has Epic cooked/created mods, otherwise known as "downloadable content". Damn shrimpboat pull the Sony goggles off and you will know what everone knows UT3 is incomplete on the PS3.
UT3 should have come out on 360 last year, it would have easily sold a million copies thanks to the 360s sales figures
Mass Effect has only sold 700k copies, and its actually been advertised. UT3 is a niche game. Most xbots are drones for Halo and Cod4. I don't see people in between that going to 'arcadey' UT3 to get their FPS fix. Halo does the job well enough.
UT3 on the 360 will sell 100k in the first week. Maybe-maybe 1 million over a one year lifespan. Like it will on the PS3.
No you are completely wrong! Don't compare 360 owners to ps3 owners because we even though you hate to hear it buy games and especially shooters! If this game sales poorly it will be the fault of epic making a terrible decision to put this out on PS3 1st and killing the hype for the game! I will pick up the game but i have a feeling that because this was on ps3 1st alot of people will pass and wait for bigger 360 titles thanks to your console! These type of games just don't belong on PS3 sorry and will never sell as they would have on xbox! It will hit 1 million it's 1st month watch and see!
you're wrong. Mass Effect sold over 1 million copies already weeks ago.
Now Uncharted, heavely advertised isn't selling well. As is UT3 on the PS3 ain't selling, as is Ratchet&Clank same damn fait of those BluRay movie buying PS3 owners. They buy no games.
Last time Epic made a game for the 360, it sold over 5 million copies. It's name? Gears of War in December 2006.
They'll get the mods & maps on the 360 right in close coöperation with Microsoft, not the stupid PS3 one map a time copy on the USB stick.
Dude get you're head out of Ken's ass. The 360 has more then double the installed base of PS3 users. They're on what 16 or 17 mln. at this time. Plus, 360's have an average attach rate of 6.6 games sold per unit. The PS3 is on 3.6 per unit, about the same as the... sh!t for you: Wii (and if you like, like the last gen Gamecube).
We can say with ease UT3 on the 360 will sell a lot, like a lot better then on the PS3. PS3 users like to buy BluRay movies, no games. Proven by UT3, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank you name them.
Leave the analyst work to grown folks.
you know why gears sold well ? its because 360 owners had nothing to play back then ....same thing could be said for halo 1 on xbox ....lol....what an excuse of a machine your predecessor was .....fared so poorly its not even funny.....and btw.....i dont even care for sales figures (360 has double the install base coz it been around here for double the time) as long as i can play good quality titles such as ratchet,uncharted , mgs to name but a few.....
"you're wrong. Mass Effect sold over 1 million copies already weeks ago."
"Now Uncharted, heavely advertised isn't selling well. As is UT3 on the PS3 ain't selling, as is Ratchet&Clank same damn fait of those BluRay movie buying PS3 owners. They buy no games."
The fact that UT3 aint out in Europe might have something to do with it. Oh and proof that UC isn't selling well is needed for your arguement.
"Last time Epic made a game for the 360, it sold over 5 million copies. It's name? Gears of War in December 2006."
Yeah over a longer period of time and in more continents that UT3 it.
"They'll get the mods & maps on the 360 right in close coöperation with Microsoft, not the stupid PS3 one map a time copy on the USB stick."
That funny. I though M$ and Epic had a big row over charging for maps etc on live. Plus you can download mods on the PS3 browser. Tool.
"Dude get you're head out of Ken's ass. The 360 has more then double the installed base of PS3 users. They're on what 16 or 17 mln. at this time. Plus, 360's have an average attach rate of 6.6 games sold per unit. The PS3 is on 3.6 per unit, about the same as the... sh!t for you: Wii (and if you like, like the last gen Gamecube)."
That's really ironic coming from you. Your head is so far up Bills ass the lump in his neck is you nose.
"We can say with ease UT3 on the 360 will sell a lot, like a lot better then on the PS3. PS3 users like to buy BluRay movies, no games. Proven by UT3, Uncharted, Ratchet & Clank you name them."
How is it proven. All that is proven here is your a rabid 360 fanboy who hates Sony like no tomorrow.
So yeah, gg.
True - Mass Effect has only sold 788k as of 12/22/2007
Just to clear that up.
@The Marty, and especially for you, because you have Europe set in your location, and yet jerk off on each US sales report:
3 top selling PS3 titles week 'till 22.12. in Europe:
1: AC: 163K (BTW: outsold the 360 with 129k)
2: CoD4: 125K (360 sold 138k, to mention in all fairness)
3: UC: 107K - aha! Guess it made it into the top 3(again).
BTW: And for the ones here not able to read german: Look what they say (bottom right corner).
Quote: "360 sagt: Da steckt so viel drin, das koennte sogar Halo3 vom Multiplayer-Thron stossen"
"360 says: There's so much in the game, it could push Halo3 off the 'multiplayer-throne'". (literally).
Why is that? Because its on the 360 now ?
Mass Effect sold over a million in 3 weeks
the vgcharts numbers are erroneous, as usual-
In the third week alone gears of war sold a million just in north america...when has the ps3 did that with help from europe? let alone sell a million in north america without being bundled. whats funny is someone said gears of war sold because the xbox didnt have any games...so can you explain the ps3 and their numerous games and no one in north america is buying them?
your wrong, also if that was the case then now no one would play it right? wrong again i still to this day play Gears of War, not because i have no other games if you dont believe me check my gamertag its because its an amazing game! i also see loads of people playing Gears from time to time and there people that play games such as Halo 3, Mass Effect, COD4, Skate, Forza 2, Assassins Creed etc etc etc so dont talk about stuff you dont know
"Corporate Vice President of Global Marketing for the Xbox 360 reveals to GameDaily that the title sold more than a million copies in the three weeks following release."
2 problems. One, they are probably saying sold to retailers considering that they really don't care after it's sold to them, and two, that this is the VP of Global Marketing. What do you expect him to say, our game sold like crap?
That aside:Mass Effect is a great game.
Should have stayed in bed this mourning Droids. Happy new year, after all it is supposed to be year of the PS3rd XD
Gears sold a million in like two or three weeks. I don't think UT3 will be as popular as GOW, but it will still do well.
great if turns out to be true gives us 6 months till gears 2
i think it legit. Also the comment about detrowning Halo 3 multiplayer in the corner. My german is pretty bad but there is somestuff in it.
There are better games out there on Live than Halo 3. Once people just try them, they'll struggle to play Halo 3 again.
Thats true. I'm only quoting the pic.. i'm playing skate (x360) btw with a little bit of uncharted on the side (trying hard now)
after COD4, i never went back to H3 lol
I love cod for the single player...but damn it could have lasted longer! The multiplayer is pretty awsome also, i like the challenges ''crouch shot ftw hahah''
same here man; halo has been dethroned
Well now it depends on what you like. CoD4 is great fun and has given me hours of enjoyment, but so has Halo 3. Just depends if I'm in the mood for running around jumping 10 feet into the air or crusin on a mongoose or if I want to be a little more patient and tactical(if you can call CoD4 that) I'll play CoD4. Two different games.
Well, at least we will polish the custom content methods off. And have plenty of content ready come 360 release!
I wish the PS3 version was delayed well after the PC. Everyone got the game at the same time, so no one was modding.
Where are you going to save the mods though? for the 360? External HDD?
The EUROPEANS would also be getting the PS3 version in February 2008
BTW this is a RUMOUR so wait for EPIC's official announcement regarding the release of the X360 version
PS3 UT3 version would sell a lot more than the x360 version in EU but not in NA. By the release in FEB ps3 might already reach x360's total lifetime sales in EU
even with 3/4th of x360's total sales in EU AC,COD4 ps3 version sold more than the x360 version in EU.
as for NA too i seriously doubt whether the XBOXERS would purchase UT3 over HALO 3
Are you aware no one has actually bought the game. So far sales for both PC and PS3 have been underpar.
I would not be surprised if this is indeed true & that once Epic & Mark saw more or less the sales numbers for the PC version they got right to work on the 360 version & the PS3 version will probably suffer & the wait will be long when it comes to those mod tools now that they are working on the 360 version so that they can get that out there to recoup on losses from both the PC & PS3. It is safe to say that Epic & especially Mark for being so gaga over the PS3 version got rightfully owned.
360 is their only chance of turning profit on this game. Here comes the XBOX saving the day again :). Should have made this game first on 360 then PC and PS.
You guys should stop running after a myth. In the US, the 360 version is the clear favorite. No doubt about that. It might even be on a global level (or say, US&EU), because of the shooter genre still selling better on the 360 (IMO). But please, respect different markets. Just as an example: AC sold more units on the PS3 in Europe last week, then it did sell on the 360 in the US (163K vs. 125k).
The European market is growing, it seems, and the numbers are pointing towards the PS3 in that territory. Even CoD4 is a head to head race.
Saying, UT3 didn't sell in the US, well, yes, maybe. But it is comparable to AC (44k) and close enough to CoD4 (58K) with its 41K (right behind). These numbers are roughly tripled in Europe, BTW (which is strange, because the total install base is about the same). And maybe it is save to assume, these might hold true for UT3.
I would be very surprised, if UT3 would sell like Halo3 or even CoD4 (or AC) on launch day - on the 360. Certainly not like H3 (what was that ? 1 or 2 M incl. preorders ?). It might sell more on launch on the 360, but I predict it will sell head to head with the PS3 version afterwards. And then, they have to clear the "mod-question" on the 360, first (and clearly communicate that before launch).
Might i remind everyone that this is a rumour ,but if true we know UT3 is going to sell sh*t more copies than the ps3 version.
PS3 has mod support
360 no mod support
You would have to be an idiot to buy the 360 version if you had both systems. But if all you can afford is a 360 well then sure you don't have a choice.
why did Epic bother with it? Why not keep it exclusive to the PS3 as they said it would be in first place? ohhh I know... because at the end of the day they still need to make money and pay the bills... Epic treated xbox 360 gamers as 2nd hand gamers by not releasing this game on the xbox 360 eventhough as proven by Gears sells compared to UT on the PS3 xbox 360 is their primary source of income... Now they need xbox 360 gamers to rescue them from probably their worst business decision they ever made? No thanks... I will pass on this game.
After all the crap they spoke against microsoft... Epics mission to paint microsoft as an evil corporation and how xbox live sucked for not letting them do wherever they wanted with their mods... If I were microsoft I would never let this game pass certification.
This game is on my ignore list... Not getting my money... buying this game will let Epic know that they can simply screw xbox 360 fanbase whenever they want... the next thing they will released all their games on the PS3 first (to help Sony)... and then have us pay their bills a few months later with a cheap port. too many games out there for us to let Epic do that.
"This game is on my ignore list" and so are you now Bladestar. I don't think anyone enjoyed that rant. In all the comments i've read of yours, you sound like a flustered, insecure (yep you guessed it) fanboy. Get a hobby
Mark Reign has and always said that the 360 version is going just fine. That they have an undisclosed issue with Microsoft that has been speculated to be due to User Generated Content.
That is why Reign said Sony was easier to work with in that aspect.
The 360 version was never on 'the back burner' But Epic realizes that $ $3,000,000 is $3,000,000, which they made from the PS3 alone. Businesses like to make money. Why not release the PC/PS3 version, and then the 360 version. It isn't like they will be losing any money doing so.
People are still going to buy the game, if they are UT3 fans. And there isn't a window of release for games. UT3 will be out for years to come. Epic is in no dire need of the cashflow from all the engine licensing they do.
Shadow Flare, I totally agree with you.
Epic is behind every game they make 100%, they'll push UT3 on the 360 hard if not harder than they did the PS3 version. You frickin' clown.
Looks like more than a few people enjoyed that rant Shadow Flare, I think you didn't because your a PS3rd Droid.
Were this the ps3 we would be flooded by 360 fans saying 'This is Waiting'. But its not. It's the 360. But its only april, not that far away, and the good thing might be that probably means Gears of War 2 will make it for a 2008 release. Like i always say, good things come to those who wait, and we all have had to wait for good games. All of us
Good to see a version that is playable will be out soon. The PS3's awful controller does not suit this game well.
That is why Keyboard & mouse are supported on the PS3 for this game. Besides that PS3 controller vs. X360 controller is about the same. They both have EXACT same number of buttons, both fit well in hand as well. I have played with both controllers and there is nothing on either controller that really hinders anything. Buttons are almost in exact same areas. Only real difference is D-pad and Left Stick/L3 are swapped.
Games aren't like movies. They dont have to sell 5 million copies in one second, not even a year. A company like Epic has oodles of cashflow.
Halo3 is what got that idea into everyones head. But No game outside of H3 had 30 million in advertising behind it.
Think about how many UNREALS were around BEFORE Gears Of
War? None of those sold 4.5 million in day one. It is a pretty practical game, with a great engine. THAT THEY LICENSE TO PEOPLE to make some real $.
You guys couldn't understand gaming pre-360. I am convinced. "How is Half-Life/Diablo/Starcraft still around years after release with huge communities? It didn't sell 90 million day one?!"
UT3 will sell more units on the PS3.. CLEARLY due to the volume of 360 users. Thats baby-basic-logic.
The big question is if Microsoft is going to allow FREE USER GENERATED CONTENT on the scale of UT3 where they CAN'T control it as they do for every other thing 360 Related. And when they do, will they have to backpedal and say "OK, Now you need a HDD for games"
While its good that Microsoft spent millions in advertising for halo, very few game titles are going to get the advertising barrage that Halo did. Don't expect every game to sell millions out the gate. Except for Worldwide favorites.
Ashta: ME sold 1 million units... but not in 10 days.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Not every game on the 360 is going to blow up right out of the gate and thats even with advertising on its side. Mass Effect had a HUGE advertising campaign that was even tacked on with Battlestar Galactica Razor with Sci-Fi....still only sold 700k in total so far.
A great number, but not even close to Halo. But why? Well, thats simple! Microsoft did something that I, in my opinion, find extremely retarded and that was "they pulled a Nintendo". Meaning they threw all of their time and effort in to a 1st party title and pretty much left all of the 3rd party devs to fend for themselves in ads.
Also, the actual dollar amount in advertising that Halo 3 received was actually more like....$250 million. First week sales of Halo 3 didn't even recoup the loss in advertising money let alone development costs....they are STILL trying to pay off that bill and MGS has yet to reach the black when it comes to profits, but when they throw all of their eggs in to a single basket that kinda what I expect to happen.
This is one thing I can say that I actually like Sony for and that is they don't really let one single game hog the spotlight from any other game. They have TV spots for 1st party exclusives sure, but Sony also put out two 3rd party advertisements themselves in their successful "PS3 Universe' TV spots to show those helpful and loyal 3rd party devs some air time love.
From what I read it was only a $10M marketing plan for the launch of Halo 3. Halo 3 is the game that put Microsoft's game division in the green, definitely not in the red. I don't know where on earth you read that the marketing was $250M, but its just plain wrong.
I will concede and say that I was wrong on the figure for advertising finances.
The total cost of the game was $250 million.
Advertising WAS only $10 million.
HOWEVER, MGS still reports a negative margin in financial status. They have yet to get a black mark at all. Ever. And considering that they have done nothing but consistently LOST money ever since the creation of the first Xbox I doubt they could ever EVER recoup any of that total loss.
Ashta YOU have no clue what you are talking about. Go play with your GI Joes and leave the internet alone there's enough numbnuts without you.
NO GAME IN THE HISTORY OF GAMING HAS COST $250M!! $250M?!?!? Check your stats man! No game has ever reached the triple digit million budget. Keep telling yourself that MGS is a flop, but while they're selling millions of copies of Halo, Sony will be struggling to reach 1M in Uncharted.
Are you kidding me? I've submited this here first: http://n4g.com/tt/tips.aspx Maxconsole copied this. I finally want some credits for this :D
Time will tell Blademask. But as of now the sales are NOT impressive for UT3 on PC or PS3. Right now obviously no one knows which version will sell good once all 3 versions are out unless you want to be a fan boy (like Blademask is) about it & just say your system but the fact is as of now sales are not good for the two versions that are out.
You're telling me you're going to trust some no name VG Chartz? Wait till the December NPD numbers come in before judging the sales of the PS3 version. And, also, keep in mind that it's still in limited quanitites, and ONLY available in North America. Talk to me in April when we see the worldwide sales of UT3 when its in full supply.
The PS3 version has sold more than the PC version last time I checked and it's sales figures were actually quite impressive for a game that people tried their damnedest to downplay because it was hitting the PS3 first.
UT3 is about:
Mods and the COmmunity.
Thats why I bought both the PS3 version and the PC version.
Again, you guys cant understand what good games are.. if there aren't sales to back them. I feel sorry for you kids. You guys have to try to hard to justify a CONSOLE purchase to boost your ego.
Games are entertaining. If they do their job, then thats well worth the 60 dollars + I've spent.
Epic/Midway does perfectly fine with everyone licensing Unreal's engine.
Yep... The best version
It would be nice to have online console wars, the amount of players would be massive, anyways cool for xbox360
I think it would be cool.
Well, does anybody know if 360-PS3 multiplayer is possible? Guess not, being PS3 uses GameSpy, while 360 is Live! (maybe the reason for the delay ?). Would be cool, though. Would like to play against our 360 friends. No need to buy a PS3 for that, and vice versa.
We have the game already! And PS3 is currently #6 (80gb) and # 15 (40gb) on amazon.com (america) and don't even mention the rest of the amazon sites. Go look for yourself. 360? GTAIV and HOME will be out by April, that game will overshadow this release on 360 for sure. MGS4 buzz will be heating up around that time too. It is sad to think that nearly 3.5 months will pass before it's release...."jump in, and wait"...a taste of your own medicine Mart!
EDIT..lol at disagrees, sorry really, Mark Rein (Epic CEO by the way) stated recently that it was not even started, but now 90%? April 8.....April 18....May 18th..June 18 (sounds about right)...lol (Did I mention Mark is Epic CEO?)
I bought this for the PS3 and its not even that good.
I did also and after owning a ps3 I can honestly say It is my least favorite console this gen. I haven't played any ps3 games that have made the purchase worth it. I own Uncharted, Unreal, Resistance and Motostorm all are just ok not outstanding...
