UT3 looks better than Gears (with extra bonus PS3 love)

To say that Epic’s Mark Rein may be proud of Unreal Tournament 3 is something of an understatement. Just watch our exclusive chat with the man to find that out. Lately, he’s been bigging up the graphical power of the game, claiming it to be better looking than Gears of War. Ouch, Gears fans. Ouch.

Rein also continued Epic’s latest trend of saying really, really nice things about the PlayStation 3.

“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.”

Claiming that the PS3 version of UT3 is “something special,” Rein praised how “right” it felt to play the game with a controller — surely blasphemy to the weird and unsavory PC obsessives out there. Rein also went on to say that there were no greater difficulties developing for the PS3 than any other console, despite what some devs have claimed.

Mark Rein hearts the PlayStation 3, I think.
