    Default Yes we will have PS3 keyboard and mouse support

    Folks,

    I checked with Steve Polge and he said that YES we are supporting keyboard and mouse in Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3. He is confident we are doing it in a way that will be balanced without feeling "gimped" for either side. We'll also allow people to choose whether or not they want to allow mixed controller vs. keyboard/mouse games or not.

    I think you guys are going to love UT3!

    More details to come later.

    At least a good news for consoles players and maybe cross platform! I play on PC but I'll really enjoy to play with consoles players to have the biguest community as possible

    The word I've been waiting for!

    Please allow us PS3 users to flick on a "computer gameplay" mode....computer speed, computer aiming. That would be best!

    360 Users: please do not hijack this thread. The game is only coming out on PS3 and PC this year and then will appear on 360 next year. As soon as we have a better idea on 360 release timeframe and features we'll announce it but don't expect any news on it before the end of this year.

    IMO that would be a bad idea

    Cross platform play isn't decided yet. Please keep this thread about keyboard and mouse for PS3. There are other threads on cross platform.

    This will be great for all the people that ditched the endless PC upgrading and got a PS3, but still miss old school competitive UT.

    Also pretty nice to see a big announcement like this hit the forums instead of being saved for pay-per-read magazine interviews.

    Go Epic!

    Great news, cause I was getting worried I'd have to learn to move with the two oddly placed analog sticks. But I wonder if we'll be able to configure the keyboard keys??? Its cool if not tho, I'm still really psyched about this news as it is.

    I am soooooo happy to hear this. Thanks for the update! I have one small follow-up question to this news:

    The keyboard and mouse support will reach into the bluetooth and wireless arena, right? I have seen the keyboard and mouse speculation for a while, but I always saw it described as, "usb keyboard and mouse," or similar. Will bluetooth keyboards and mice be supported also?


    [oops. that was actually two questions. but only one answer is needed ]

    I have a question about this. Earlier Mark or Jeff said they'll slow down the game speed on the PS3/console version. But considering that keyboard and mouse support works with PS3 for UT3 now, we'll we see a change in that? I'd very much like the speed being the same on the PS3 and PC, if they were different it'll be difficult to build custom maps that would flow great on both for gameplay.

    I'd be very thankful if the speed on the PS3 is as fast as the PC version, it'd make designing maps and mods alot easier if they were at the same speed.

    Awesome job accommodating for the keyboard and mouse people, but I really hope it can be done without giving them an advantage... any ideas how they plan to "make it even"

    Thanks, that is great news:P ...I really don't know how do people use the analog stick for FPS! KB/MS is the way to go for all FPS! hope other games follow up on this :P

    & yes Mr.Rein I hope I would love this game as much as I did love UT99 :P

    well there really only 3 ways to do it, adjust hitbox's for mouse users to make them smaller and harder to hit, MAke mouse users do less dmg or mess with the aiming system so your not as acurate. If you want to play on a mouse and keyboard and not deal with any of those options well you gotta get it for the pc

    Mark,
    First of all, this is great news, thank you for this. Secondly, I've always wondered if this was a difficult process to implement, or does Sony's inclusion of the keyboard and mouse drivers make it a bit easier?

    This is good news for the PS3 players that like PC style gameplay.
    It is also another sign that the line between consoles and PCs is thinning... fast. I'm not sure whether that's good news for anyone.
    Oh well, at least for real console style gameplay you can still get a Wii.

    Epic - Thank you guys so much. This factor will get me to buy this game, as I was planning on just having WarHawk as my mutliplayer game for a while, as I can only really justfify one console vehicle based futuristic multilayer shooter per year. BUT, if one is all six-axis and one is keyboard and mouse, well, that is totally different!

    My PC can't take the current games well, so am looking forward to some nice keyboard + mouse gameplay to bring me back to my UT / UT2004.

    Good news indeed for PS3 owners, UT is meant to be played with KB/mouse. I *really* hope this does not indicate PS3/PC cross-platform play, but that's already OT

    Yeah maybe it's OT, but you could think about that with the decision to have both SIXAXIS and kb/m on the PS3, it'd form two sets of communities on the PS3 only. It'd be foolish not to merge the kb/m community of the PS3 with the one on PC. In UT there has always been community problems after a while of the games life due to the many different gamemodes anyway. UT3 don't need to split it up to like, three times as many small gamemode communities. Which is what will happen if cross play isn't in it. ;f

    Anyways. Thanks Epic! Great news!
