First User-Created UTIII Mod Created for PS3 28

For the time being, mod creators have to jump through an official 'hoop' with Epic games to see their content made available to Unreal Tournament III PS3 players (something Tycho lambasts Epic for at Penny Arcade). Just the same, content is beginning to trickle out, and Eurogamer has the word that DM-Shrine is now available for download for holiday-bored PS3 owners. "Epic didn't make this map. Thomas did and he already released it for PC users of UT3. We didn't do any editing or changes to it. All we did was bring it into the editor and "cook" it into the proper format for the PlayStation 3 and tested it to make sure it ran properly and was good fun. We're waiting on some paperwork from Sony that will allow us to release an editor update so mod creators can do this cook process for themselves. We expect to have that very soon."

    The problem here is that in the near-impossible hypothetical situation that anyone will create a mod worth playing in before the cooker is released, we won't be able to play it until Epic has found it. Console gamers are not interested in beta software, as long as the software is out before the mods are, there really is no issue here whatsoever outside of the minds of the indignant few.

    With the amount of games that come out these days that plain don't work until the fifth patch or so is out I don't see why everyone's getting so pissy about this. Battlefield 1942 managed to be quite successful despite not running for more than 15 seconds on most computers at launch. I remember buying Crysis a few weeks back and all I got is eyeballs floating in the darkness, now that was annoying.

    Dear Jerry Holkins, I love your work but you've really gotta let this one go, compared to the multitude of sins that are committed in this world (often also involving the PS3), this one doesn't even warrant a footnote.
