    Absolutely, I only bought the PS3 version last week, and I get atleast 10 DM servers, around 8 CTF servers. Every game type always has atleast 1 server when Im online. I f*cking OWNED every1 on the 1st match I ever played lol, I was like 10 kills above the top player, and I hadn't played UT3 since I stopped playing the PC version YEARS ago! After that I couldn't even hold 3rd place for more than 2 minutes though, LOL, it was like beginners luck on steroids.

    Halo requires some serious skill to get past rank 40 online (its pretty hard to get there in the first place but it goes up to 50), but UT requires much much more skill.
    For most people UT is probably too hard (honestly I play against the computer on level 3 or 4, I'm useless online (until I get better - and I promise you I will); most people would just give up)
    More online games need to use a system like that. One of the reasons I hate COD, is because there seems to absolutely NO beginners, anywhere, everybody is like full-on uber-killing motherf*ckers who obviously spend their whole lives playing one game. People would find it far easier to become skilled in a game, if your opponents are chosen based on skill level. You get say 30 people who are ****e, then out of them, 10 of them will become good, and move onto the next tier, instead of always being right at the deep end. It just makes me not want to bother with some online games, and play the single player mode instead, cos I cant even pop my head round a corner for half a second without being instantly killed by some "miracle sniper".

    I'm on PS3 version regularly, I love it. I don't dislike Halo Reach or the COD franchise but I always return to Unreal very quickly.

    What about on the Xbox 360?

    Having just played UT3 on the PS3 online the other day, I can also confirm there are still people playing online. There aren't a lot of people, but people are still playing.

    And of course you still have Epic's legendary bots which are capable of playing all the multipalyer modes and maps offline (and online to fill in teams) so UT3 can never really die.

    Listen to Flak!! She would know, right?! Do what many other people do and play it on BOTH the pc and ps3. Heck, even the 360 still has die-hard players so get that version too, if you have the system....the discs are all super cheap if you buy them used!

    You'll be the only person there. I sold mine and got it on PC for that reason.

    Games like halo and cod are played more. Because they're noob friendly. Difficult, skilled or games highly reliant on movement. Are too hard for the majority of console players. As such easy games get further.

    And at the same time ruin the games for those who enjoy some challenge and skill.

    Thank you,
    this sentence is probably the best thing an UT player could read nowadays
    You show that you're a player with level unlike those who give up before they even started.

    If you start playing UT online you should check out my newcomer tips thread (sticky thread in this forum section). Most of the tips refer to online matches and maybe you'll read something you didn't know before for example the SP(a)MA lock on with the Longbow AVRiL (many people don't know it. Lock onto the SPMA camera and shoot and wait for the "SPMA target aquired" message, then do whatever you want. The missile will automatically start haunting the SPMA when the message appears on the screen)

    Because I don't want to hijack this thread I'll return to the original topic now.

    I'd recommend to stick with the PC version. If anything the PC community will always be the "main community" of UT(3) since the very first Unreal and the first UT were PC games (even if UT99 was also released on PS2 and Dreamcast it wasn't as popular as on the PC).

    Dunno, the PS3 version is not that bad and has all the facilities for a good semicompeditive game. Just didn't retain a strong community. The PC version is the best and most complete version of UT3. PS3 has 80% of the features of the PC version (few existing custom maps and mods available+ titan). 360 is pre-titan so its completely ****.

    Console games fade in and out much faster than PC communities. PC communities have outlasted several console platforms. At the current rate I don't think there will ever be a console game that has a community that last longer than a PC community.

    I have no clue. I don't like it either, UT is superior to it. Halo is boring, slow, unbalanced and did I already say "UT is superior to it"?
