Mark Rein: PS3 UT3 graphics better than Gears of War

9 11 2007

PS3 UT3 has better graphics than Gears of War according to Mark Rein, Epic’s vice president.

Speaking in an interview with Pro-G at the launch of the PC version of the game, Rein said that he was “really proud” of the PS3 game.

He said: “People are going to be pleasantly surprised. 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.”

Rein said that there is “something special” about playing UT3 on the PS3, and that while the speed of the game has been reduced by about 20%, “it feels just right to be playing it with a controller”.
