Unreal Tournament 3 PS3 Mods = Pain in the Rear

Loot Ninja is sure you've seen Tycho over at Penny Arcade rant on the modding in the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3. Basically, he thinks it's crap that you need a USB flash drive (or other memory card type) to copy the mods from your PC to the PS3. Loot Ninja could care less about this. Who doesn't own a PC and some sort of memory card these days? It's not that big a step. It's not completely necessary either. If you try to play online with someone using a mod, it will be automatically downloaded to your machine.

What bugs them is that you need to copy one mod at a time via your USB drive. Imagine wanting 25 mods, but needing to make 25 trips with your USB key. Not very fun.

This has nothing to do with the PS3 being good or bad, so it shouldn't turn into a flame fest (but when has that ever worked here).

This is Epic's implementation of mods for the game on PS3. It's the first time it's been done, so there are growing pains involved. Just pointing out some optimizations that need to happen sooner rather than later for mods to become more mainstream on consoles.

Man, this is just drivel... let's make something out of nothing...

What they fail to point out is that most UT3 players will be adding mods as they come out -and it's not like there are many right now -nor will they come out in a flood.

Another useless article. Kudos to you.

actually, imo this isn't making something out of nothing. It is a pain and I've read numerous complaints from people who are having problems getting the files onto their PS3. For some reason when booting Unreal 3 it wasn't reading the mod files from my USB drive even though everything was done accordingly... So a better way of implementing these mods into the game should be configured; at least imho. And You should be able to download multiple mods onto your USB Drive/Memory Card and download all at once if you want to. Instead of having to go back n forth... But as someone else mentioned, growing pains, and that's all this really is. I just hope Epic takes it upon themselves to implement a better way of distributing and getting these mods onto a PS3 from PC... But it's certainly a valid point imo, and something that needs to be brought to the attention of those who can do something about it...

Bu..but..buh..TeH RROD ZoMG!!

The simple fact remains : Mods are batter than no mods at all.

Cell has nothing to do with the PS3 + UT3 Mods. Try actually reading for once in your life.

Heard that joke already, funny the first time, second time not really.

More like Bu-bye Xbox 1.5. Epic hates Xbox Live. Say goodbye to Gears of War after the second game is out. Can you say PS3 exclusive? I bet you can.

As for the crybabies, give Epic some time. One mod at a time is still better than the 360 will get, which is zero mods.

but then again if mods weren't an option people would be complaining as well. [eye roll]
