The Who's Who of Console FPS

The consoles get their own version of the FPS-laden latter stages of 1999

Last year it was all you could do to keep yourself to yourself about the Quake 3 / Unreal Tournament frenzy, and it looks like this Christmas will be no different in the USA.. Quake 3 on the Dreamcast should be with us in a matter of weeks, but DC owners will have to wait until March 2001 in this country to get hold of it. Fortunately the PlayStation 2 version of Unreal Tournament will be out for the console's release, but if the latest reports from Infogrames are true, potential owners of the PS2 and Dreamcast might be better off to wait until March for the DC incarnation. With the extra time Infogrames have given the development team it's expected that a lot more of the original game will be converted and included than had been previously suspected. We reported a few weeks ago that the PlayStation 2 version was to be dramatically cut down to simply Deathmatch and Capture the Flag. This latest announcement hints at the possibility of us seeing further game modes in the Dreamcast version, perhaps even some original ones.
