UT3 PS3 gets PC controls

Mouse and keyboard ahoy.

Unreal Tournament 3 will support mouse and keyboard on PlayStation 3.

Confirmation came on the official forums from Epic Games boss Mark Rein, who said it would be carefully implemented with a host of options.

"I checked with Steve Polge, and he said that yes, we are supporting keyboard and mouse in Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3," said Rein on the forums.

"He is confident we are doing it in a way that will be balanced without feeling 'gimped' for either side. We'll also allow people to choose whether or not they want to allow mixed controller vs. keyboard/mouse games or not."

It follows news from E3 in July that Unreal Tournament 3 will be console-exclusive to PS3 this year, and will let you enjoy popular PC mods from the PlayStation Network.

The 360 version will follow next year, and Rein recently said mod support was being worked on. And he assured us that if it didn't work and worst came to worst, then Epic would simply offer them as downloadable content.

But everything is quiet on the mouse and keyboard front for now, and Rein had "nothing new to report about 360" on the forum.

Head over to our recent first impressions of Unreal Tournament 3 to see why we've all got our knickers in a twist.
