UT3 Won't use Live

Well, the PC version of the game at least unless things change. Here's a post by Epic's Mark Rein:

UT3 does not use Games for Windows LIVE. We have not decided about cross platform play between PC and PS3. We're not 100% sure that users want that feature but if we get time we'll play around with it and see how it works. In the mean time we plan to be able to serve the PS3 from PC servers so that should help us gets lots of great servers going.

I've got Xbox live, it's great for a console. But for PC it's just a BS rip off.

Hope they don't do it. keyboard and mouse vs controller is liek wtf

PS3 version is rumored to support a mouse and keyboard though too...

as long as not every server is both PC and PS3, I think it could work pretty well...I have a good bit of friends that are getting this for PC...and a good bit for would be cool if we could all kill each other over and over again regardless of what hardware we are long as it works right...

The Live service is really crap for large multiplayer games, since the avergae persons upload speed is far to low to deal with anymore than 4 players. It's a good move to stay with dedicated servers, games like The Darkness have suffered badly in multiplayer due to the limits of peer to peer tech.
