PC gamers have long considered consoles to be "behind the times" since customization of games was either not possible or flatly denied by the parent company via a series of cease and desist lawsuits. We've known for a while this was going to change now that the current generation of consoles have harddrives and other functionality which allow indie developers to "try stuff" out, but it seems things are finally starting to happen. Epic has just announced PS3 modding support on the Sony Blog so lets hope other companies follow their lead, realize the benefits of modding and open up too.
This is great news for modders, especially if their creations can be easily ported onto different platforms and are compatible with one another (i.e. PS3 UT3 gamers can play PC UT3 gamers online), as this presents the mods with a chance to reach an entirely new market of people who either consider PC gaming too complex or too expensive and stick with consoles only.
