Unreal Tournament 3 may support cross platform play

Unreal Tournament 3Everyone knows it’s possible to play games on an Xbox 360 against PC gamers. Shadowrun might not have been great, but at least it showed that it’s possible. What most never really considered though is whether or not the PS3 will keep pace and pursue their own cross platform ambitions.

The question of whether or not UT3 will support this feature popped up on the Epic forums recently, and Epic’s own Mark Rein popped in to answer:

"Cross platform play isn’t decided yet."

Well it’s not a denial! It also means they are considering it. Personally I hope that it doesn’t make it in, or that the player has the option to play against only console users. I find it hard to believe that console gamers would ever be able to compete against PC gamers while being gimped by a controller.

Also revealed in that forum, is news that the PS3 will support a keyboard and mouse. This would obviously level the playing field, but I hardly think Epic wants to make the keyboard and mouse set up mandatory.
