Unreal Tournament 3 console vs PC

Fredrik Olsson | 07-09-27 04:10 | news

Bad news for PC- and Playstation 3-owners who hoped to kick each others asses in UT 3, in an IRC-chat with UT-fans, Mark Rein revealed that console vs PC support for multiplayer has been dropped and will most likely not be added in future updates either.

"The biggest challenge in doing cross platform play is syncronizing the builds such that the build on the PC is 100% compatible with the build on the PS3. Unfortunately (or fortunately) when you games on console you have a lengthy certification process to go through each time you release anything new...

We looked at how this would impact our ability to respond quickly to things happening at internet speed on the PC side of the equation and realized that would not be in the best interests of our very loyal PC user base because we would constantly be holding on to updates to wait until they passed cert on the console platform." - Mark Rein
