Epic have been getting a lot of bad press lately, but one thing is for certain and that is that the Unreal developer certainly hasn't been neglecting the console market lately, as proved by the efforts being made to get Unreal Tournament 3 working on the Xbox 360.

Unreal Tournament 3 was released on PC late last year and the PlayStation 3 version followed soon after, but there's still no sight of the Xbox 360 port of the game - odd given that the game was said to be finished a long time ago.

The reason for the delay apparently is down to the mod system, which Epic is keen to get working on consoles as well as PCs. Mark Rein assured fans that the company is still working hard on the project though in a recent interview.

"We're still trying. We're working with Microsoft to try to figure out how to support it, but regardless of what happens, mods will play a part somewhere along the line. We'll make sure we get a fair share of mods working. We'll figure that out."

Mods have been a surprising success for PlayStation 3 gamers despite some of our concerns and it's good to see that Epic is trying to give the same experience to all platforms. It seems only fair - though you do have to ask where the Wii version is.

Are you planning on picking up a copy of Unreal Tournament 3 for the Xbox 360, or are you firmly attached to your PC? Let us know in the forums.
