    This is great news, thank you!


      * Dedicated PC server support for PS3 clients
      Wow that is huge. Been hoping for that for a long time.

      Definitely loading this game up tomorrow when the patch is up!


        There's still a long way to go but this is a nice start, it would've helped if you had told us you were working on a patch though

          WarTourist, please clarify. Does this mean that PS3 players can now play on the same servers PC players play on?

            I know I'm not WarTourist, but I was under the impression that that means that you can host a server from a PC for the PS3. You know how you can rent servers and host PC games? We could see the same thing for PS3 (i think)


              This is amazing. Just when I thought Epic had given up on PS3 users, you come out with this. Thank you. BTW like Tails said it would have helped a ton if we were notified of future patches.


                Nice to See Epic Has Not Abandoned Support for the PS3.

                It is good to see that Epic has not abandoned support for the PS3 version of UT3. If only Epic would work together with Sony to publicize UT3 more on the Playstation Store and on . What about creating a demo and new videos for the Playstation Store? Last week I found a UT3 video on the Japanese Playstation Store. It appeared to be better than the one that's on the US Playstation Store because it shows off more of the different weapons & vehicles.
                Also, why not get an in-depth presentation of UT3 and some trailers on an upcoming episode of Qore? The holiday shopping season is coming up fast & it would be foolish on Epic's part to misss the opportunity to stimulate interest (and sales) of UT3.


                  Do any of the stability fixes correct the Demo guy bug or help with Mod Support? Also, please clarify what is the truth of the matter regarding what Grinchy/Martinblank said. Also, Thanks! Anything is great.


                    Happy to see they still work on UT3 for PS3 to some degree but I don't see anything I really care about. I see a lot of really minor tweaks.
                    What does this mean?-"Dedicated PC server support for PS3 clients" Someone said u can set up a pc server for PS3 games but why does that matter if you can just use your ps3 to do that?

                    I don't see anything about helping with the game freezing up when you join a server; No text messaging so we can feel like we're actually interacting with human players. the voice chat kinda sucks.

                      Out with the laggy servers, in with some good *** whoopin!!
                      i dont know what you're talking about. I host game servers on my PS3 and they seem to work very well. Guys with I play with say the same.

                      But if it means more good servers and more people to play, I'm all for it of course.

                      Other than this, the patch looks like a lot of really minor tweaks I never even notice in DM/TDM


                        nothing for not being able to replace the bio rifle in weapon replacement....****!
                        isnt this patch supposed to be live by now
                        i still havent been prompted to download it
                        and theres nothing in the psn store


                          I've downloaded it

                          its up here in EU at least


                            Hi again, one of my friends who can't come here wanted me to post this for him:

                            "complain about the lack of mod features and custom sounds, not to mention factions and fpv arms and gibs."

                              Hello, shane1v. This is AJGamer from the PSN. I can attest to the excellent quality of service your PS3's server provides. Likewise, I have never received complaints about my PS3's server when I run it. I routinely request feedback about it and have yet to receive any negative responses. I know that one of the players who uses my PS3's server is located in Germany and he too tells me that it runs virtually lag free and without issue's.

                              What I don't understand is why the dedicated Midway servers have such problems (boots and freezes) when our PS3's Listen servers do not. I would like to see that addressed in a future patch as it would greatly enhance the online service that is provided.

                              Epic Games,
                              Thank you very much for continuing to support this fantastic game. I was starting to believe that you were abandoning us and am ecstatic to discover that I was wrong. UT3 is my first experience with the Unreal Tournament series and I have enjoyed it despite the few nagging issues that remain. I have owned nearly every shooter available for the PS3 and this is far better than all but Resistance:Fall of Man. By this point in time I have sold every PS3 shooter other than UT3. Many of the shooters are designed for below average skilled gamers to be good at and include ridiculous features such as Aim Assist (many including CoD4) or even Target Locking (Warhawk). There is no point in playing a shooter, in which the goal is to be more accurate and efficient at aiming, that has the aforementioned features. Thank you for not bowing down to the masses and including such genre purpose defeating features.

                              As for the patch which is launching today, it is a wonderful surprise despite not addressing what many consider the most pertinent issues (dedicated server and Mod issues). I just checked and the patch is still not live here in the U.S., but I look forward to receiving it.

                              I hope you guys continue supporting the game on the PS3 and consider what B5GkarNarn mentioned or some rendition of that with a similar goal. This game is extremely fun and could greatly benefit from a little push to the PS3's user base. Some exhibition of the extremely talented and dedicated Mod creators you have here, too whom I am extremely grateful and pleased by, would not hurt either. No shooter on the PS3 can compete with this feature and look at all the buzz that Little Big Planet is receiving for what is essentially the same thing. Best wishes and thanks for the support.
