GameSpy online technology has recently been licenced by Epic and it is integrated into Epics UE3 technology. It is allegedly supposed to offer PC – PS3 online functionality, and it will include cross-platform gameplay, communication tools and competition applications via GameSpy.
Some other games like Codemasters Turning Point: Fall of Liberty are going to take advantage of this new Unreal Engine technology, but we are yet to see how the online ladders, tournaments and such will be solved.
However, when asked about the possibility of Unreal Tournament III’s cross-platform support recently, Mark Rein said that it’s a feature that technically works today, but whether they’ll enable it or not, is still a question.
