    Besides the fact that with the 75k I'll be dumping into it, I'd better get something from it...
    Heh... There IS a reason we were suggesting a slightly (in our opinion) better use of the $75k in the form of a slightly more general degree that'd help you accomplish a bit more if things went sideways on you for any reason.

    It's not that it's a bad choice. It leaves less room for error.

    Well, of course SCEA isnt an altruistic company as opposed to the loathsome M$, just take the results of these companies' efforts in beating the competition and modify them. Which brings me to a cool idea. What if we all buy a ps3 to play ut3 on it? Then install linux on the ps3 and run the ut3 ps3 mod tools on it with wine, to create mods for ut3? I guess thats the closest thing to ut3 on the linux platform so far.

    You know... If it's not on Linux, it's just not worth all of that. Seriously. You're jumping through flaming hoops, buying a title for a different platform from the one you WANTED it to run on from someone that had a serious release date slip on you.

    If they ship here soon, I'll buy. Otherwise, it's just not worth all of that to me.

    Didnt you say a few posts ago that you would mod the xbox360 so that it serves a completely different purpose? This is more or less like that too!
