Less multiplayer maps for Xbox 360's UT3?

ut3According to a speech from Mark Rein at this year’s Edinburg Interactive Festival, Epic is planning to trim down the number of Xbox 360 multiplayer maps due to inefficient disc-storage for the upcoming online FPS Unreal Tournament 3.

He stated, "We’ll compress some things. But you know, we may have fewer maps on the 360 version…Blu-Ray has definitely given us a lot of legroom."

The rest of the article just goes to show that Rein is really supporting Blu-Ray Disc. "…Blu-Ray has definitely given us a lot of legroom. And what’s reallycool [sic] is if you think forward and think about what we’ve done in the past with UT. We had UT 2003 and then we had UT 2004, which was everything in UT 2003 plus a whole bunch of great mod stuff that we went out and purchased from mod makers."

Heck, shove all of that onto a Blu-Ray disc in a package (or on Steam, *hint*) for the ultimate, extreme, gold medal, platinum package with two fluffy kittens that spring from the Disc. I’m sure the UT fans would love that from day one.
