    PS3 vs PC

    I've posted this question in the Valve's Support and they sent me to here...

    I've purchase the PC and PS3 Versions of the game.

    Actually is not possible one player from a PS3 Console play together with a PC player right?

    Will it be possible in future?

    And... Can I, at least, create a server in the PC (with Linux) to play via LAN with other PS3?

    Thanks!!

    PS3 vs PC

    I don't think PC and PS3 players can join the same servers. This is obviously because PC gamers have an unfair advantage and would clearly dominate anyone playing on a console because a mouse allows for a much better aim. Most FPS games are like this, and it's a good thing too.

        isn't UT3 ps3 slower than the PC version? PC still has an unfair advantage.

          Yeah, that's another problem, both technically and practically (the PC players are used to higher speeds and therefore probably are better than PS3 players in general).

            Looks like that problem may have been solved - http://www.ut3mod.com/2008/03/mutator-pcspeedx.html

              I think that my post title was unhappy...

              It should be PC AND PS3 and not VS!!

              All I want to do is play against my wife.... me in PC and she in PS3... and vice-versa...

              Somebody have the epic's support e-mail contact?

              Thanks!!

              PS: I have Keyboard and Mouse to play in my PS3!!!

                Cross-platform support is not possible, and never will be, for obvious reasons.

                  lol, of course not. I'm not a console gamer. I used to be; in the era of non-mouse/keyboard consoles.

                    But mutators are server side so it will affect PC as well

                      PC and PS3 cannot use each others servers. So PS3 players can play just as fast as PC.
