Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

Now compare it to MW3 or Call Of Duty or even Far Cry I from 2003...see the difference?


I do see the difference - they are worth playing for a few of hours and then they are a throw away item (hence the used game market.)

The irony of your argument is astounding. The big-name outfits have been rehashing the same ideas for years man! And you can bet they don't all use their own bespoke game engine either.

To just lump UrT into the "another Q3 rip-off" is doing it an extreme injustice. UrT doesn't play like anything else and it has fantastic replay value.

Dude its very first page says, and I quote " that (thanks to the ioquake3-code) does not require Quake III Arena anymore". Delude yourself all you want, its yet another Q3 Arena DM snoozefest. If running like a chicken with your head cut off is all you need to be entertained? then i'm happy for you, but you are gonna be awful lonely as most of those players are either in TF2 or the latest Call of Dooky.

Again its like saying Tux Racer is gonna take on Gran Turismo, its not even funny, its just sad. Its built off of VERY old code with an even older engine, it looks awful, and it offers absolutely nothing over Cube and a bazillion other Q3 Arena DM crap. let me guess, without even looking at the page, its DM, CTF, and a few team modes, yes? Wow, how did I know that? Because its the exact same thing the OSS world has been rehashing since the Q3 code was donated. I'm sure when their latest engine is released to the OSS community we'll see a bazillion DM/CTF games released using it too, same old same old.

I'm not denying for a moment that UrT based on the Q3 engine. But how is this any different the upteen different commercial titles built on ID or Unreal technology?

Give the game a try ... It might surprise you.
