What with all the talk about how great the Cell processor is at mathematics, it doesn’t exactly lend itself to practical gaming, and in an interview with Mark Rein of Epic Games, it was revealed that the PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 will be missing maps that will be found in other versions.
If that weren’t enough, the given reason was a slap in the face:
Mark Rein, Epic Games’ VP, said that a few maps didn’t mesh well with the PS3, “…because the system didn’t have the resources to produce a smooth gameplay experience,” and the decision was made to axe them.
Ouch. Even more curious was another quote:
Rein also revealed that players can release their maps on the PlayStation Network for sale.
So players will sell user maps to other players for money? For a “free” online service, people sure are expected to pay for a lot of normally free services.
