      lol, thanks for the warm welcome. that would be great if pc people can play ps3 people, and even xbox people! that would actually make ut3 extremely popular because its the first game to do that! so what game modes do you pc users usually play? and do u use mics alot, and do they work? ps3s mics dont work, not yet.

        Eh, don't really use mics, mainly cause PC ingame voice is kinda broke. I have come across a few servers that use Ventrilo (a voice chat program) to talk.

        I play all modes. Usually I play more vCTF and Warfare. Of course, if they would put a Scavanger in more levels, I would be a lot happier

        Half the time I end up mapping instead of playing. Who knows, mebbe you will play one sometime (if i ever get one finished), and you can say... HEY I KNOW THAT A$$HOLE!!!


        *also there has been official chatter about enabling cross-platform in a later patch. but nothing official has been announced

                  Th gameplay between PC and consoles is too different. Consoles are roughly 20% slower to accommodate the controller.

                  Sony and MS are direct competitors, so I wouldn't expect they'd be keen on people being able to cross-play; on top of that, the PS3 network is wide-open (or in other words, probably crawling with viruses and malware) and I don't think MS will be too excited about exposing their network to that, via stuff downloaded when joining a server or such.

                      Epic has stated that there nothing preventing it, but certification on content for consoles prevents updating the titles like they have the flexibility to do on PC, so the stumbling blocks are still there. Cross platform PC/Console has been done with SHADOWRUN. Still, not the place, but Keyboard/Mouse vs Controller is still the biggest problem. There is just no comparison.

                      Ultimately, welcome to the community. Just take everything here with a grain of salt, you may be new, but remember that many of us have been a part of the UT community for over 8 years, and with a long term love or obsession the opinions are varied and some extremely passionate...which is why you see a lot of "absolutes" thrown around...and a lot of strong opinions on every side and every issue around the game.

                      Ultimately, the frustrating thing with all the vets and strong opinions about the game is that you have a faction of players the legitemately don't like the game or have legitemate beefs with it that feel that they have to come to forums like these thinking that they convince those of us that play and enjoy that we SHOULDN'T like or play the game. Well, I speak also from an 8 year Unreal Vet perspective...the series has had it's ups and downs, but I love UT3. Yep, a lot of the gripes are legit, but almost none of them are really gameplay related. The game top to bottom is solid as hell and fun. The UI is a problem and there are technical issues and mis-steps from Epic and Midway outside of the actual gameplay and mechanics itself. But as soon as the countdown starts and the match is underway, we're still dealing with a top class FPS.

                      Just have fun.
