Unreal Tournament 3 user created content causing PS3s to crash

Unreal Tournament 3 - Image 1We all rejoiced when Epic Games finally announced that the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3 (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) was opened for user modding, but there’s something that may dampen those cheers of delight. A PS3 UT3 gamer reportedly suffered a game crash, which was reportedly caused by user created content.

As always, more details in the full article.

Unreal Tournament 3 - Image 1Several gamers rejoiced when Epic Games announced that Unreal Tournament 3 (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) was opened for user modding, but it seems that the gaming feature is causing headaches for several gamers who downloaded and installed user created content.

According to a poster in the Unreal Tournament forums, his game crashed while playing campaign mode. He restarted the PS3 in an attempt to fix the problem, but once he booted his copy of UT3 he only saw the following message:

It appears that the game either lost power or crashed, potentially due to user created content. Would you like to disable user created content? You can still delete and re-enable them in the My Content menu.

This poster also said that he imported all available PS3 UT3 user created mods, making him unable to pinpoint which mod is causing the problem.

Sounds like a serious problem indeed, and we hope that this will be fixed immediately so it wouldn’t mar an otherwise spectacular feature. More updates to come!
