Epic just announced that they will be featuring Gamespy online multiplayer functionality to add seemless intergration with their leaderboards, ranking and player profiles (stats and other things). This could lead to crossplay platform thanks to both the PC and PS3 having open networks which would make communication easier between the two.

Nothing is official on the crossplay part of things but it sounds like its getting closer. PC Eliteist this is not bad, more copy of the game will be sold this way and would populate more servers (UT2 was barren). Remeber PS3 users can use a mouse and keyboard so it will be fair gameplay all around. ;)

Depends on the developer, Sometimes they have a great server browser, other times they are rushed and just feel poorly put together. Mind you gamespy just provides the network and technology, everything else is done by the games developer.

The UT games have always used gamespy servers even in game.
