TXB: The Potential of Gears of War 2

VIA TXB- At Microsoft's GDC 2008 keynote address, the rumors circulating the Internet regarding Gears of War 2 were finally confirmed by Cliffy B himself-who chainsawed his way on stage. With much excitement, he let everyone know that Gears of War 2 is currently planned for a November 2008 release exclusively on the Xbox 360. While we weren't able to get a glimpse of the game itself just yet, we were treated to a stylistic teaser trailer for the game. Earlier in the keynote, though, there was also a tech demo of Epic Games' latest Unreal Engine 3 features, which helped us form somewhat of an idea of what's to come in the Gears franchise.

The potential is huge but some new weapons should be introduced and some more DLC if i recall GoW1 had only 2 map packs and its been i dont kow 2 years!But enough of that lol im pretty sure this will be a blockbuster for the story alone.

First - I think this game helps level the advantage that the PS3 had up to now on the releases for 2008. Some may still say the PS3 has a better line up but the difference is no longer significant IMO. If MS can just fix the reliability once and for all it will be in great shape.

On a more global note - wow - what a time to be a gamer. There are so many good looking games coming out that it is hard to believe it - exclusives, cross-platform games, etc. Doesn't really matter which gaming system you have - there are some great games coming. I just feel sorry for the poor devils that have both a PS3 and a 360 - don't know how you would possibly have time to play all the good exlusives for both in addition to the cross-platform games. The nice thing is that regardless of your choice you can probably just play one system and still have a ton of games - I personally am not going to be able to play all the good games coming out on the 360 (same seems to be true for the PS3 owner). But then, I work too much so perhaps others game a little more and will actually enjoy both systems. Must be nice.

Anyway - 2008 is going to rock - and just think about 2009 when all the games start having the great production qualities that the improved engines are bringing. It is going to be sweet.

Exactly what I was saying. I do feel the ps3 lineup is slightly better. However someone at gamefaq's posted another rumor that the makers of Tales of Symphonia have a 360 timed exclusive coming in. I'm waiting for someone to confirm this but it sure is a great time to be a gamer. And the Ninja Gaiden demo shown at GDC looked amazing as well. Can't wait.
