Gears will be going against the PS3's shooter Resistance. Is there room for both? CliffyB thinks so:
"I played Resistance at Digital Life last week but looking at the way the game is played with your backpedaling shooting at lots of these little spider guys and you're, you know, you're running around all crazy and rushing right up to these guys and going through these kind of concrete pike filled tunnels; that's it's own game.
Gears is just not that game. Gears is much more about hide and go kill and flanking your foe and dealing with the scenario that we've proposed of enemies bursting forth from beneath you all the time, and they really feel like drastically different games. So, I mean, to play fair and be honest, I think that there's plenty of room for both products."
