UT3(shared with PC)

Just for kicks throw in Time Crisis 4 and Sing Star which is a pretty big title in Europe. Not sure if LBP is scheduled for this year but that should be out either this year or early next.

Ah... Haze. I forgot about that one. You sure Socom will be ready? The last few videos I saw of Socom didn't look very good.

The thing about Socom is that it's going to be one of those full game PSN titles. So I'm not very sure how devs go about handling the graphics. They might want to keep the file size down to a certain number while still having decent graphics. Warhawk is kind of like this. It doesn't look amazing but it looks very good for a downloadable title, especially with the level of AA it has.

EDIT: Oh crap I didn't know this but UT3 on PS3 will be compatible with mods from PC!

I watched the Nintendo and Sony conferences live and the MS conference afterwards, and I personally liked the MS conference the best, but not by much. I thought the Nintendo conference was the worst of the bunch only because the Wii doesn't appeal to me. What impressed me most about the MS conference is that they played live demos of several games. In my eyes, the lack of live demos hurt Sony's presentation, as did the performance of their main speaker, Mr. Tretton. I see a lot of people liked Sony's the best, but I think it has a lot to do with them going last, which is a significant advantage.

Prior to watching the MS conference, I had heard that MS didn't show many games. After watching the conference it seemed like MS showed more than Sony (granted several of the games were Live Arcade). I'm guessing they showed about 2 dozen.

UT3 is coming out for 360 too, maybe a bit later, but it's definitely coming. (It's not having mods/maps compatibility, whether that's a HDD issue or Live issue I don't know)

I'm still of the opinion that 360 will have the best of it for the rest of 2007; just Halo3, Bioshock and Mass Effect as (console) exclusives will just about take it for them this autumn/christmas.
Whatever Halo3 turns out like it'll sell well just on pre-orders!

Next year is harder to predict, I know that MS were concentrating their E3 showings on what's coming out soon (2007), but unless they've got something big (in terms of exclusives) up their sleeves for next year then I think Sony will begin gaining ground thru' 2008.

Here's the thing about UT3 on the PS3. If you are able to connect a keyboard and mouse to a PS3, why would you play such a fast pace shooter with anything else? At which point, you might as well play it on your PC... and most of us here have a more powerful PC than the PS3/360. The only real upside to have UT3 on the PS3 is for those who can't run it as good as the PS3, but like I said... I doubt that's anyone here.

Why so many excuses? The point is you can play it on your PS3 on a giant TV if you have one and with a keyboard and mouse.

You can do the same with a large monitor and pc. I see both of your points. It will more or less come down to preference.

That's what I do for all 360 games that are out on PC as well. I just hook up my 360 controller (which the game automatically detects and does rumble and all that good stuff) and I am able to run it at higher frame-rate, more AA/AF, and my TV's native res.
