This game is going to be a beast!!!

Edit: Disagrees? Silly pups, dont hate. Jump on board...

this game is seriously gonna rock though... the first one was simply amazing despite it basically teasing the story along for us. I know the MP was pretty sick and this go 'round it won't just be tacked on as an after-thought... which I really hope means they'll catch all the glitching that plagued the first Gears.

Delay Unreal III all you want EPIC... I can wait for the good stuff.

Thats going to be asking a lot out of the 360. If they have to do 720p and add in more action to the mix.

The 360 has no engine like what we have seen in the tech demo, that runs at 1080p. Let alone 720p. Sony has set the bar for 720p & Streaming visuals with Uncharted. Without a serious upgrade to the hardware. It will be interesting to see what compromises are made.

TheExecutive3467d ago

Yeah yesterdays demo was a tech demo of the UE3 engine, not Gears of War. They just used it for hype...

VirusE3467d ago

"Lets remember that HD starts at 720p" So what about COD4?

You realize that in the grand sceam of things 720p is a joke right? 1280x720? I was playing pc games in 1280 x 1024 when you were still playing ps1.

Going by your higher res means better game philosophy the ps 3 must suck because my PC does 2560x1600 and 1920x1200? Does your ps3 do 2560x1600 or 1920x1200? Well god it must suck then, what sad hardware. My pc pushes out over 4 million pixels and your "ps3" at 720p is getting 900,000 so then by your logic pc games are 4 times better than ps3 games?

Games make a good system not what res it plays at but you dont have many good games to play yet so you need something to justify your purchase.

lol....nothing against GOW but is this all we're going to hear about now?

mintaro3467d ago

after all the format news, its good to hear about something else

socomnick3467d ago

Next to halo , gears is the most hyped franchise so im sure your gonna hear much about it.

BigKev453467d ago

Yes, gEnKie - tell me what game is better?

Mu5afir3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

Bioshock
Call of Duty 4
Uncharted

We don't know much about Gears 2 so I won't compare that.

TheExecutive3467d ago

meh, I wont get into what games are "better" but it is refreshing to hear something about a new game in the works, I hope they announce more new stuff about Resistance too.

What I really dont understand is why they didnt show an in-game trailer of GeoW2. I hope it comes out in time :/

beavis4play3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

COD4,bioshock, uncharted, HS, R&C, KZ2, MGS4, ReFOM2, GOW3, FFXIII,FFversus, GTA4......how many do you want? if you aren't a 360 fanboy; there are many games that do more with story, weapons,level design...etc where gears is excellent is visuals, but i question just how much of a jump can be made with no hdd support and game being crammed on a standard dvd.
and gears is 9 months away but they couldn't release a 30 second trailer or some game screens with the release announcement?

mintaro3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

its really hard to compare which games are better, especially since Gears 2 hasnt even come out yet

TheSadTruth3467d ago

GoW is good, but many games are better. The multiplayer matchmaking system killed the original imo.. it eventually devolved into a bunch of lonely preteens abusing host advantage versus randoms and lack of client side hit detection makes it retarded...

Daishi3466d ago

Let me explain why they didn't show an in game trailer for those of you who don't understand. The teaser was to show us that they are emphasizing story far more than last time. I called the anouncement months ago and now I will bet that Gears 2 will be playable at E3, albeit behind closed doors (aka Halo 3 style).
