Rein: UT3 PS3 Graphics Better Than Gears

How good does the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 look? Well, according to Epic Games' Mark Rein, it's gonna look even better than the fantastic Gears of War, which looked pretty damn good on the Xbox 360 last year.

During an interview with Pro-G, Rein said he was "really proud" of the PS3 version. Considering Sony's console is still supposed to be the lead platform - along with the PC - for UT3, this certainly makes sense. And while it seems clear the development process didn't go quite as smoothly as expected, as indicated by the possible delay the game has been facing, things are definitely looking up.

"People are going to be pleasantly surprised," said Rein. "It's a really high end experience that pushes the graphics bar up even higher than Gears of War. There's more polygons, there's more stuff going on, there's more explosions and there's more things happening, so we're just really pleased with the way the game runs on the PS3."

Sounds good to us. He did mention the speed of the game had been reduced by about 20%, but it still feels "just about right" when playing with a standard controller. Well, Rein keeps saying good things about the PS3 version, so can we finally assume it will indeed arrive this year? Perhaps December, as Epic said was a possibility after Midway prematurely delayed the game until 2008? Let's hope so; this would be huge for the holidays, no doubt about it.
