UT3 on PS3 gets first user-created mod!

349w ago - As Epic explained on its forums delays dotting the i's and crossing the t's held up the tools needed for modders to make their content PS3 compatible. While it usually takes a little while for the mod scene to really cranking anyway, that sparked some disappointment that PS3 gamers wouldn't be able to start adding user-created mods to their game right out of the box.

We've got it hosted for you right now on our FileFront site: Download DM-Shrine for PS3 here.

The public release of those tools remains in limbo (don't worry; it shouldn't be too long our sources say). In the meantime, Epic themselves have stepped in and using their developer version of the tool have packaged up a surprise Holiday treat for PS3 UT3 gamers. The first ever user-created, not to mention FREE, map for Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3 is DM-Shrine by Thomas Browett, who goes by the name Setheran on the official UT3 forums.

And here's Epic's Mark Rein with all the details from his forum post on their official site:

Epic Games is proud to take the first bold step in a new era! Today we're releasing the very first user-created content for...

Porn Industry Warms Up to Blu-ray

349w ago - A while ago, Digital Playground and others in the porn industry have strongly avoided Blu-ray as it is more costly to produce for and because the Blu-ray association themselves have expressed reservations on publishing such content.

However, in realizing how much money and power is involved and the fact that the format war is far from over, the porn industry has decided to put its stuff on both formats. A spokesperson for Digital Playground also revealed that a lot of Playstation owners were asking when their content would hit Blu-ray too as a reason for making the Blu-ray move.

To quote: So why go with Blu-ray? Joone explains, "A lot of people were emailing that bought a PlayStation and they were basically saying, 'When are you guys going to release Blu-ray?' They really have no preference in format yet because it's so now. When it comes down to image quality, there is no difference between the two."

The first Blu-ray title from Digital Playground is Pirates, which has garnered awards from all of the major industry outlets. Adult Video News says that Pirates, in its standard and HD DVD formats, holds the record for highest sales and rentals of XXX video.

So splendid is "the most expensive adult effort yet produced," according to Digital Playground, that the Motion...

Windows XP SP3 RC Is Now Available For Download

349w ago - Microsoft had just added the much anticipated Service Pack 3 Release Candidate ( The closest stage of software development to the final version) for the Windows XP Operating System ( OS ) to their download center last night. The Windows XP SP3 RC is now available for all Windows XP users, and it seems that even those with ehem.... " Un-Genuine " Windows XP OS installed in their systems can also download and install the RC, but I'm not quite sure about that, since mine is genuine.

The SP3 RC was in private testing for quite sometime, and now that Microsoft had moved it to public testing, I think Microsoft is very confident with The RC's integrity, otherwise they wouldn't had released it to the public. And I also think that it is almost guaranteed that Microsoft will release the SP3's Final Version at the early next year.

During the SP3 RC's private testing, many testers claimed that the RC brought about 10% performance boost to their Windows XP systems, something that Microsoft still has not officially confirm and publicize. If you ask me, I would say that Microsoft does not want people to have a renewed interest on the last generation Windows XP, now that Microsoft is busy trying to get more people to use it's latest but not very well received Windows Vista.

Beside the performance...
