Well fellow UT3 fans, I was in quite a dilemma earlier tonight. To cut a long story short (or not), I went into Circuit City with the intent on upgrading my PC for UT3 (basically lugging my entire rig there).
After arriving, I also decided to take a gander over to the PS3 section, being that my itch to play UT3 in all its glory on a 40 inch Samsung, was taking over any logical reasoning stirring within my cranium.
Anyhow, I'm an extremely loyal Xbox fan - but tonight, I was willing to turn to the dark side because of my love for Unreal and UT3.
After much debate and a little employee persuasion, I ultimately decided to upgrade my PC, rather than purchase a PS3 for relatively the same price.
Honestly, dropping the dough on a glorified Blu-Ray player just didn't make sense - especially considering the only game I care about (and would even play) is UT3.
I mean, if it's a matter of being patient until the 360 version is released, then so be it. My Unreal console itch will then be cured with 1080p visuals and a superior online service.
In the mean-time, I figure that my PC gets daily use and will serve to benefit the most from this upgrade (eVGA e-GeForce 640MB 8800 GTS and dual quad processor I believe).
Otherwise, in a couple months when UT3 arrives on the 360, a PS3 would serve no further use (much). So basically, a slick PC upgrade will last for a good year or two - while the PS3 would only get a few months worth of play-time.
Just outta' curiosity, has anyone else had the UT3 itch so badly, that they were in a similar predicament? I'm not gonna' lie, but UT3 is PS3's system seller at the moment.
After all, I almost made an expensive impulse buy, just for this game. Thankfully, I was already meaning to upgrade my PC anyway, so buyer's remorse won't be an issue.
Geez, sorry for my long rant.
