    If you think this is a 5 minutes job for any programmer (developer, level designer, code sanitizer, playtester, graphical artist ... the list goes on) - then you are sorely mistaken.

    And the reason why this is being released on the PS3 before the Xbox 360, is because because work on the PS3 version was started before the 360 version. There is hardly any point in having 3 incomplete versions of one game when you can release 2 versions, get some cash coming in, and work on the third at a later date.

    I don't believe that Epic games would be silly enough to release anything as a PS3 console exclusive - it's just not financially viable (or good for marketing, come to think of it).

    It's working now because they probably did it at the same time as GoW.

    Personally, I'm getting dissapointed by UE3 games. They should have forced a seal of quality on.

    Yes, but I thought that the whole point of XNA was that Xbox games could be developed alongside PC games. Surely it would have made more sense to release PC & Xbox close together, and spend more time on the PS3 version because the architecture is so different. But just because it sounds logical, doesn't necessarily mean that it is...

    TBH, I've never really paid much attention to the UT games - I'm not much of an online player (mainly because I get pwned so quickly), and the engine's already been used in so many other games that even the technology isn't exciting any more.

    sony have a poor catalogue compared with the 360 so why would they not pay for it...... they gave rockstar a shed load of cash to stop the 360 version of GTA 4 coming out before the PS3 and the 360 version is complete, it just the silly PS3 version that is holding it back till easter

    according to you maybe....for only being a year since it's debut, I think it's got a very good catalogue of games.....that's not considering PS2 games that you can also run on it....o & btw nobody should buy Logitech's Cordless Precision PS3 controller because they are now denying that it can do rumble even though on the box itself and on it's website (until Sunday morning) it said it did. Just a head's up.....

    They were meant to be out this year (announced about 12 months ago) but I think the poor uptake is affecting it
