PS3 Unreal Tournament 3 will be missing maps

ut3collectorsDespite the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 utilizing supportive hardware like a keyboard and mouse and containing map-building tools, it looks like the game will ship with a few less maps then its PC counterpart, according to IGN.

Mark Rein, Epic Games’ VP, said that a few maps didn’t mesh well with the PS3, "…because the system didn’t have the resources to produce a smooth gameplay experience," and the decision was made to axe them.

While the number of cut maps isn’t known, I’m sure players won’t notice a dramatic difference.Also, PS3 owners will be able to create their own maps, so in a sense, those maps can easily fill the missing maps’ place.

Rein also revealed that players can release their maps on the PlayStation Network for sale. With the PSN, Epic Games is planning a future update using the PSN that’ll contain current popular mods and maps.

Lastly, Gamestop posted up details on the collector’s edition of UT3. Folks who purchase it will not only receive an exclusive in-game character, the female Ironguard (shown above), but also a collectible hard cover UT3 art book and a bonus DVD containing 10+ hours of Unreal Engine 3 toolkit videos, the history of UT and behind the scenes of UT3 all in a snazzy collector’s tin.

Unreal Tournament 3 ships in November for PC and PS3.
