Default Should I get UT III for PS3 now or wait for Xbox 360 Version?

I've recently rented UT III for the PS3 and IMO it looks awesome, runs so smoothly and is so much fun to play. I am not looking for any opinions on whether the game sucks or how 1337zors it is, just wondering if its good to pick it up now for the PS3 or wait until Xbox 360 version comes out and see how much more better (if at all) it runs on that system.

I could pick up the PS3 version used at my local gameshop for a little cheaper than what I would pay new retail for a xbox 360 version and Xbox Live is not a big factor in this case as I dont have many friends that log on for this game anyways. Thanks for any opinions given

Go PS3. Least you have the option for keyboard and mouse if you want.

I believe UT3 on PS3 can use mods, and there is no assurance the 360 game will... knowing MS it won't... go PS3.

Or PC, but... I assume you don't want that answer.

Wow... I came in here with the intent to tell you not to buy it at since it sucks... but I guess you actually played it first and enjoy it... Get the PS3 version, you get it now and it supports mods.

The game looks pretty decent IMO. It's not Crysis, but it was never meant to be. Besides, I can live with 60fps @ max details on my system. Heck, UT2k4 couldn't even run that well on my P4 system, and UT3 runs smooth as silk while looking pretty damn decent.

I do think they could have done a little better job with visuals, but they're not bad.

When Oblivion came out on the PS3 one year after the 360's version, it looked and performed better.

Would this not be the case with the 360's version of UT3? Surely the extra time they have to work on the 360's version would = better visuals and performance?

If not, why not?

Because the PS3 version of UT3 ran and looked better then GoW which barely ran on the X360 at some points.

Even if you ignore that Epic already stated that the X360 version would have fewer maps and no mod support (as of right now, MS isn't budging). The X360 will also lack K&M Support.

I really think the X360 will be lacking when it releases... I don't think EPIC has much care for it. Theres no news coming from it at all.

Very sorry but that is such a lie. I played it a lot over coop I never experienced this "barely ran". It however did have occasional texture pop-in.

When I had it the "occasional" texture pop in was about every time you turned a corner aswell as the game had some slow down on a regular basis.

I never had an issue with GoW on 360. I think it's just your machine |MagNuS|.

Been playing through GoW and no issues on my end with performance that I can speak of.

Wrt UT3, I am in the same boat, cept I am likely going to get it for my PC.
