    This is probably reaching, but did anyone pick the game up yesterday? I thought "what the hell" and Finally bought Assassin's Creed, and then UT3. The campain sux.... It's a bunch of matches linked up with a story-scenes (which look nice BTW). But the gameplay is fun, as are the weapons. It's also a great-looking game, ala Gears of War. Is anyone planning on playing this online for some more TFW gaming goodness?

    No, but I'll get the PC version.

    Console FPS FTL.

    Awesome, just what I wanted to hear. So I guess I'll see everyone on Halo on Thursday for some console FPSing :D

    Is it a FPS or fighting game? Can you enlighten me on the plot?

    It's a first person shooter, multiplayer focus, there is no need for a plot(even though it has a weak one for a campaign, it's irrelevant).

    And I'll only give it a shot on the ps3 to check how it plays with a keyboard and mouse out of curiosity.

    It's definitely fun, but like Halo3, it would probably be more fun playing with people here. IGN did a recent preview on it and said that the keyboard mouse combo work very well, as do the motion controls, though not required. The hoverboards are FTFW!

    I'm getting it, but I don't know when. Is it worth it? or should I wait for 360.

    Well lately, games built on the 360 and ported to the PS3 haven't run well on the PS3 (the same happens in reverse... see Devil May Cry 3), but this game has a smooth framerate and no issues that I can see off-hand. But truth be told, if people here get it, you will have more folks to play with on 360. If I enjoy it long enough when the 360 version comes out, and enough people here get it, I'll replace mine with the 360 version.

    Well I think I might wait for 360, I like FPS with that controller better anyways. Plus money is tight cause of the holidays, I'll just get Uncharted for now.

    Without a doubt Uncharted is a better purchase.

    Believe it or not I have too many other games I want to get for PS3 right now. But it sound like the multiplayer is pretty good.

    LOL glad you didn't take offense. I occasionally get the same feeling, just really nauseating. Sucks, I got it a lot while playing Bioshock.

    So UT3 for the ps3 finally showed up from gamefly.

    With the mouse and keyboard, it is the best console FPS I've ever played, especially since it's on my big ass TV.

    However, the input isn't all that smooth, and the framerate is at like 30 fps. It also doesn't look anywhere near as good as the PC version. To top it off, the sound seems to be really low quality too.
