The only real advantage for the 360 version would be playing over Xbox Live I suppose.

But the lack of mod support is a deal breaker for me. May aswell go the PS3 route.

Be aware that to make PS3 mods, you need to buy the PC version and develop for the PS3. Plus, mods made on the PC by default, will not run on the PS3.

Also, in direct contradiction of what Magus said, UT3 on the 360 is likely to run noticably better than on the PS3. That is what additional development time gives you.

If you don't plan on making mods then your first point is moot. All PC mods will work as long as they are cooked for the PS3 which most mod developers are doing since its nothing more then running an extra application that recompiles it for the PS3.

As you can see most mods in development are already being designed with the PS3 in mind.

I still believe that the PS3 version of UT3 will run better then the X360 version, I can see the PS3 already having better load times thanks to having the abilty to install the game on the PS3.

You gotta love the install option on PS3; installing the game content reduced load times significantly, wish most games on PS3 would offer this

Well for those of you curious to know what route I took, I went with what most of you suggested and picked it up for the PS3. I've always been a fan of UT series, dropped UT2004 back in 2006 so its been a good 2 years since I've been in the action of it and am really enjoying UT III.

However after having played more of the game and online play, a patch is definately needed for the console PS3 version, Epic has to get on the ball and revive this game of whatever is left of it for the PS3, hopefully the 360 version will already have all patches and updates applied

Most reviews say that UT3 is simply more of the same, nothing really new, nothing really interesting. (I have not played the game).

I think he meant, why does it need patching.

Biggest issue is that EU and US players cannot play against each other on same servers, and majority of Midway servers for UT III are located in Europe, causing alot of US players to encounter the usual 'core pack is unavailable' error when tryign to cannot to EU server, happens to me about 3/4 times connecting to one, can get tiring. Many players also experience extreme server lag that is non-related to their ISP provider, so some issues within the servers for UT III that need to be resolved.
