"Gears 2 is going to be bigger, better and far more badass than the first one." This November, 2008.
"game community" is the more important news from MS. Gears2, is still good news. this can go head to head with resistance2 for the big holiday fanboy flame war
Gears of Wars was crap. Resistance was even more crap. Coming from PC Gamer.
One of the biggest titles for XBOX 360 and there's not even footage to showcase the true power of Microsoft's Little Dumpster Juice Machine that couldnt. It's because the truth behind the power of 360 isnt too pretty. $niper
ohhh no... fanboy don't go there... lol... People are still scared with the PS3 Kill Zone 2 CGI for years... They just announced this game and it already has a release date... They don't need to show in game footage on the day they announce the game... Do you have a Kill Zone 2 release date? Though so... specially when one conciders that this is the 2nd Gears of war since Sony announced Kill Zone 2.... pray that Kill Zone 2 does not endup competing against Gears 3... lol.. Remember the CGI movies Sony used to compete against Gears 1? well... you are still waiting...
Still makes me laugh, Killzone 2.. Yeah I want Liberation for my PSP, but, after playing Killzone 1 I just can't bring myself to it... Crap. Can't wait to see the letdown from KZ2. Hey, I'm just here for the fight...
This story is wrong. They showed the new UT in-game with Gears of War 2: http://www.n4g.com/events_g...
How delusional are you? They said its the UNREAL TECH DEMO. NOT GEARS OF WAR 2 TECH DEMO. Find me where they specifically said "THIS IS GEARS OF WAR 2 IN GAME FOOTAGE." I'll delete my account right now. Edit @ Below; Epic did the same exact thing with the previous engine. Still no 100 player battles.
yea looks like they just showed a tech demo. If gears 2 can pull of crazy battle scenes with crazy amounts of enemies on screen count me in
cool, and why are you in this thread?! Good to know, i will take your opinion into consideration when i go the shop and buy Resistance 2 and GeOW2 when they come out.
That PS3 lineup is starting to look realy "small" poor droids.
Small as far as what? Screens from Resistance 2 dwarf any tech demo for the AMAZING AWARD WINNING UNREAL ENGINE (L O L) Seriously.. whats your 08 lineup? I mean I'll give you credit if it even numerically outweighs PS3's 08 lineup. No Multiplatform titles please. Only 360 titles. Here is your list of non multiplatform titles for 08. 1. Too Human 2. Fable 2 3. Halo Wars (not sure if thats coming to PC. Is it?) 4. Banjo Kazooie I'd say gears, but Gears of War is a multiplatform title. Wow.. now thats epic. Edit: INYOURMOM. So I cant play Gears of War on a PC right now? With Windows Gaming? Good job owning yourself. How about you get a list of your super exclusive 360 titles! Not all of the ones that can be played on the PC. Yeah MS gets money from multiplats. And Sony Gets money from ps2/psp. So I guess with that logic. Sony just owned MS again. And MS can NEVER catch up?
Not even Cliffy B running out on stage and saying "Gears of War 2 in Novemeber ONLY ON XBOX 360" will sink into that thick droid head of yours. You also missed Ninja Gaiden II in your list.
you are totally contradicting yourself. Are we not talking about 08 here?? You are talking about Gears of War which yes is now on the PC after almost a year after the 360. Gears 2 has not been announced for the PC and who knows, since Gears 1 sold like total ass on the PC it might not see 2. Still, let's just stick to what has been said and unless I'm blind Cliffy said ONLY ON XBOX 360. I am not going to argue the semantics of what is considered exclusive but will just say that the PS3 will not see it. If you want to play these games on a console you will need a 360. They call it a console war for a reason. I think you are so concerned with hating that you will say and twist just about anything. Why are you so angry?
I think we know gears 2 is coming
Still trolling fanboy?, I knew it was a PS3 fanboys that posted this thread due to the wording of the title. Somehow the fact that the title says what it does must sooth the pain rabid idiots must go through. The event phase of GDC just started today theres much more to hate on. lol Don't get all worked up over stupid sh*t all you need to know is there is vast improvments visually and technically and this will sell millions. Still havn't announced the "serveral exclusives yet", No Alan Wake etc. lol
Time to look in the mirror, dipsh1t.
you can still call people a fanboy even if you yourself are one-heck everyone does it, im sure you included
Gears 2 should be really good. Hopefully we can see some footage at E3 at least. Would like to see what they have done so far to try and surpass Gears 1.
Gears vs. Resistance - Round 2
Yea they both were good games but the crown went to gears. I think this time around it will be a fair comparison because Resistance won't be a launch title.
Gears of War is a bigger franchise than resistance or Killzone or metal gear solid, it will hurt sony this christmas I think imo sony needs to announce some new game to compete with Gears
bigger franchise that MGS? Where is your dunce cap?
wow disagrees im a sony fan because of Ps2 (ps double ftw) but Gears just looks cool graphics and is violent and funny and has chainsaws and it sells better than the sony games because of that GEARS is a lot bigger than metal gear solid, sorry but its true nowadays
GT5 to MGS as well. Hopefully you can toss in some FFXIII with that too. Although ... even I am aware that's looking more like a 2009 deal.
Either your a nOoB or just plain retarded! Gears Of War kicks royal ass but MetalGear is a WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY bigger as well as a better respected franchise. Its one thing to Love your 360 and its games but its another to just not know what the hell your talking about Metal Gear has been around since the early 1980's. You sir have earned yourself a Red-Ring-Of-Dumbness dunce hat, now go stand your ass in the corner til you figure out how NOT to be stupid!
MGS4 is more for the hardcore gamer, the storyline is just ridiculously complicated, and the franchise itself is bigger only because its the fourth game. BUT GEARS 2 is hands down the game to watch out for this year, and will most definitely sell more than MGS4. It will have more hype than any other game released on PS3 this year. FF will not make it this year, and GT prologue is really just a big demo/ teaser of what to expect for GT5. Resistance lost round one against Gears, lets see Round 2 and KZ2 has potential but based on previous game, its still the underdog.
Highest selling MGS game-7 million on a 100 million install base over what? 10 years now.... Gears sold 5 million on an install base that was lower then 10 million in 2 years..... lets not forget the other MGS games also did significantly worse....You might as well face the facts overall Gears sells better per system then MGS by a significant margin.... but even then GTA towers over both of them.
It's like comparing a great rookie NFL player to one from the Hall of Fame. Sure the rooking might be the best talent seen in a long time. But it has to prove it self more than one season. Now don't get me wrong. I freaking love gears of war. And I'm personally looking forward to number 2 more than MSG. But saying GOW franchise is bigger is just ridiculous. It' might become bigger, but for now there is no competition.
Not a huge shocking suprise on my end... However, if it's one thing Microsoft has that Sony just hasn't had yet, it's product placement and timing. But, stay tuned naysayers... Sony's got some big things in store for everyone. Big things.
GDC has only begun. people need to settle down until it's over and then start flaming... lol (and it looks like i'm banned from the Gamer Zone for 4 more days :P
GamesBlow Well it has been 3 days since GDC began so i am getting little sceptical about Sony showing "big" things. Resistance 2 to given but rest of the stuff is big ???
i see there's on one must buy for the 360 in 08
Agreed. I cant lie... I'm getting a 360 jusr this and Gears 1. As much as it pains me to gamble on buying a 360, theres just no way in hell I can pass this up. I loved the 1st and I'm sure I will feel the same about 2. So a core 360 and 2 games(GOW 1&2) it is and that will be the extent of my 360 collection until 3 drops. I aint Investing heavily in the 360 due to its "issues"
I love Gears of War, I really do but "Gears of War is a bigger franchise than resistance or Killzone or metal gear solid, it will hurt sony this christmas I think" It's not bigger then MGS, that's going too far. As for RFoM and Killzone, we'll see how Killzone 2 does on ratings, if it's great then it's not going to hurt but it does have to be great, RFoM has a fanbase but GoW is bigger, RFoM looks to be great and have some great online, we'll see. Still, we all know GoW2 will do great.
@ vanquish below... Is that why MGS 1 & 2 sold more than GeoW?
besides internet forums metal gear solid is not a popular game at all Most people have no clue what it is dog, its just some weird azn stealth single player game on ps2 lol
Metal Gear Solid - 7 Million Metal Gear Solid 2 - 7 million Metal Gear Solid 3 - 3.7 million Give or take. Yeah, NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT TEH METAL GEARZ. Please.
yea dont mind this vanquish dude he doesnt know what he is talking about.....but Gears has the potential to be bigger down the road but you couldnt say that right now..... it only has 1 game its not even a franchise yet
MGS-7 million w/ what? 100 million playstations? and 10 years to sell? Gears-5 million w/ 10 million 360s at the time and 2 years to sell.
*WHAT other games were there on the 360 during that first year for Halo-starved 360 owners to show off on their new 360 *EXCEPT Gears of War? lol. nice try at spinning that, but the truth of the matter is that the MGS franchise is *HUGE, and will continue to be huge, especially as MGS4 is Hideo Kojima's "final" Metal Gear. expect sales to go through the roof.
awesome gear 2 was announed....too bad the Xbox community could have gotten something totally unexpected... oh well...
I enjoyed GoWar 1 even if it was fairly short. I have a feeling in my gut they are going to try to fight with Resistance 2 for online superiority though. At this point in time I still feel strongly about Resistance being a bigger hit this time around, but I am sure GoWar 2 will give it a run for it's money. Time will tell. I love competition for this reason. Makes for much better games in the long run.
Good Point. Anyone who just blows RES2 off as noncontender obviously never played Resistance at all or not long enough to get in to it. If you have then you know what a Awsome game Resistance is. Same goes for GOW, even though my dislike for 360 runs deeper than still-water. I cant and wont hate on Gears. This game ranks in my all time top 10 and its edged out over Resistance to me because I prefer 3rd person shooters over FPS's Atleast everyone has something to be excited about, rather it be MGS4, RES2, or GOW2. I personally will be enjoying all 3 :D Vote Obama!!!
its about time
No ingame footage, not even pics? This can only mean that there will be some delays. Nov release is a little optimistic when there is nothing to show.
more then likely means that they would wait for E3...ya know something that can generate a little more hype?
no, Cliffy B just talked the other day about how its all about timing to announce a game to build momentum. GUARANTEED, at E3 the closing video will footage of Gears 2.
LOL theres more PS3 fanboys in here than 360 fans and GOW is a AAA series. LOL Maybe its time to leave this site no more 360 fans due to what you see here. Got all of the most rabid and pathetic kids and mental case adults all flocking to this site.
POG - thepriest is here.. Fear no more.
Good for 360 owners they deserved a title that was worth on 2008
already had it with Nina Gaiden 2, Too Human, and Fable 2. all of matter of games preference, really
The original Gears of War saw some of the best graphics ever saw on a console. This was back in 2006. Since then, there has not been no game that has surpassed Gears of War in nearly a 2 year span. What this shows is that the muscle of the 360 has been maximized to it's fullest potential. Gears of War is the best that your platform can do. Deal with it. Furthermore, with no in game footage. This proves that Epic is more than likely not ready to show footage due to XBots world wide being unimpressed with the visual quality and gameplay due to it being surpassed by the likes of Heavenly Sword, Ratchet & Clank and Uncharted:Drakes Fortune in every facet. Q: Will Gears of War II surpass the original in visuals and innovation? A: Not with the XBOX 360 it cant. $niper
Q: Will DarkSniper ever stop talking to himself and making himself look like a plank ? A: No... Carry one, you make me laugh...not !
you cant be serious. 360 lineup gears 2 - tripple aaa ninja gaiden 2 - tripple aaa splinter cell - double aa. (looks like sh!t so far but i'll give it the benefit of the doubt alan wake - not enough to enough info yet too human - lol please dont make me laugh. double aa though halo wars - a rts? ahahahahah riiiight........ banjoo - to be honest i dont even know what this is grandturismo 5 - tripple aaa resistance 2 - tripple aaa little big planet - tripple aaa final fantasy (japan first) tripple aaa mgs4 - tripple aaa tekken 6 - double aaa - tripple aaa socom - double aa - tripple aaa whiteknight story - at least double aa killzone 2 - im not holding my breath for this one so i'll say double aa motorstorm 2 - double aa
both system's have a good lineup this year. It's just getting old to keep hearing that the 360 is done and it's used up all it's thunder, etc when just by the response the Gears 2 announcement is getting on all the gaming sites I think the 360 has plenty of gas in the tank.
its either triple-A or 'AAA' not both haha-but you spelled triple wrong 4 times, not sure if it was intentional
Gears 2 = Halo's hype beast replacement. :thumbsup:
*piano* GREAT DAY... *piano* GREAT...DAY... WOW...Gears of War 2 November 2008...GAME ON!!!!!
dude.............DONT EVER SAY GEARS IS BIGGER THEN MGS. mgs is a highest selling franchise. it sold 7 MILLION. its HUGE in japan, its big in europe and in america. the reason why you might not hear about it as much is because it wasnt based on MULTIPLAYER where everybody talks about it. its a single player game at core. you are a dumbass for even saying that. i could tell you're just some 13 year old child who hasnt been gaming for very long. nobody knows what metal gear is? ahhahahaahahah please dont ever comment again for you're own good. people will eat you alive for that comment. @INYOURMOM. yea you're right , the 360 does have a good lineup this year and im not disputing that at all but to the guy that said the ps3 lineup is looking small is pathetic. and isnt it funny how ps3 is getting BIG SHOOTERS and the 360 is getting BIG 3rd person games.lol
So it sold 7 million on a 120 million install base over how many years? Gears 1 has 5 million with what? a 10 million install base(now closer to 17 million) over 2 years, and you're also quoting the highest selling MGS, the other games did significantly worse.
There's no reason for anyone to own a Playstation 3 now. Gears of War 2 easily smashes MGS4.
Especially with that 4v4 multiplayer action no game can beat that with halo3 out of the way.
Geow is bigger than any PS3 game except for FF13 , it sold 5million with a 8 million install base MGS sold as much with a 100 million install base half the owners of 360 have it. Now show me a PS2 game that sold to half the install base like geow did or a ps3 game that sold to half the install base. There you go , Geow is the BIGGEST game of this generation just checkout the sales and compare the install base. Whoever disagrees give a constructive respnos Thanx and see you later.
It was the first AAA FPS (what makes Xbox) on the 360. Of course GoW will sell amazing. What else would you be playing if u didnt have this when it came out...Perfect Dark 2? LOLZ It will be the same when FFXIII comes out as Playstation usually goes the RPG way. This winner of this console war will not be decided for atleast 2-3 years...so lets keep the fight going on! Just own both..will get good games on both!
I can't wait to see the trailer.
The King returns!!!!!! yeah baby, im downloading the free gears of war 2 stuff off live now, take a look.
huh!? free gears stuff!
watch out for the gears theme Pred, it turns the guide background so red your TV bleeds
