    Hey everyone, i have tf2 for ps3 and noticed watching a tf2 vid on youtube that the pc version has WAY more maps than the ps3version. I wanted to know(because there is an internet browser on ps3) if i could some how get maps for ps3? there isnt ne in the playstation store, and i just thought it was unfair how the pc version gets more maps than xbox and ps3 does. Thanks for the help!

    Nope. Blame Microsoft for being moneywhores and preventing the content being released to consoles for free, which is what Valve wants and is still trying to make happen. I don't know why not being able to give it to Xbox users is preventing a PS3 release... but oh well.

    (At least this is the explanation I've heard.)

    This is why the PC is superior.

    EDIT: Misunderstood Nineaxis's reply

    I don't think this has anything to do with Microsoft, the 360 port was done directly by Valve and is being supported by Valve, the PS3 TF2 port was done by EA Games. I really doubt if any of the custom content will make it's way to the PS3 any time soon, if at all. I don't think it's as simple as downloading a file anyways, I imagine something might have to be done to the map files before they would be compatible with the PS3 version.

    Don't feel too left out, though. Even though there really is a lot of great custom maps for the PC version, most of them never get played, ever. There's only a handful of servers running a few of the more popular custom maps, and even smaller handful of players playing on these servers. Sadly, the overall TF2 player base haet custom maps. I only wish I was kidding you...

    Gabe Newall hates sony, so the PS3 will never get any new content so you made a pretty stupid decision in buying it for that. Its more likely to see new stuff on the 360 since thats at least running the same operating system as 99% of PCs but they're not likely to port every new thing to the 360 and not the PS3 since that would likely cause massive uproar from PS3 players.

    Simple answer: buy the PC version, every time, no matter what game it is the PC version is far superior. (with the possible exception of anything on the wii since the interface system is so revolutionary and doesn't connect into PCs, unlike 360 controllers)

    Ps3 being externally developed will cause some issues..

    But it appears the Xbox and PC versions are pretty identical and map files should be compatible after a recompile for xbox..

    recently They mentioned additional content coming to xbox .. but stated the ps3 version might be delayed longer due to it not being inhouse..

    I would guess with all these class updates, they are holding up any expansion on the console versions until this process is completed.. given that it likely will not be a free update for xbox as we all know they are greedy and consoles seem to like to make you pay even if its a buck or two.



    either way, I have tf2 for PC and ps3.. tf2 isnt nearly popular enough to be used on a console as far as i can tell.
