Unreal Tournament 3 PS3 Mods "Aren't Quite Ready"

Developer Epic Games isn't quite ready to make user-created content available for the PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament 3--but that functionality is coming "ASAP," according to Epic's Josh Adams in a post on the game's official forums.

"The PS3 mod tools aren't quite ready yet. We are working through some final legal/release issues," Adams explained. "When it's ready, you will need to download the latest PC patch and another PS3 Mod Tools 'patch' that adds the full PS3 mod support to the PC version." PS3 UT3 mods must be created with the PC version of the game, and can then be exported to PS3 format and transfered on a flash card or USB drive.

The delay in getting the tools out the door may explain why a URL listed in the PS3 game's manual as pertaining to mod support is currently inactive. "We will be posting information soon," it currently reads. "Please check again for more information." When Shacknews checked the URL earlier this week, it was completely inactive.
