Originally, it was believed that Epic wouldn't include cross-platform play for Unreal Tournament 3 , but apparently, the idea isn't totally out the window.
Mark Rein made a post on the Epic forums, saying they haven't yet decided on whether or not cross-platform play will be available between the PC and PS3. I mean, we think it's a great idea, but we're sure it presents more than a few obstacles.
"We're not 100% sure that users want that feature", Rein said in a post, "but if we get time we'll play around with it and see how it works."
However, if Xbox 360 owners are thinking they might see the same thing, we must inform you that it can't happen. Rein also mentioned that UT 3 on PC doesn't use Games for Windows – Live, so cross-platform between PC and 360 just isn't in the cards. But PC – PS3…now that's possible, and a great possibility.
We'll see if Epic makes a decision on this soon, and we'll let you know when they do.
