Basically they take franchise that has already driven itself into the ground, and continue to drive it even further into the ground until it doesnt sell anymore.

Why is that. They brought a game that still has a a lot of fans and is a staple for the Xbox brand.

So by your logic, there should be no more uncharted, KZ, Mario, Metal Gear, God of War, Halo, Zelda, etc. No?

It means more Gears on Xbox...

Seriously, what else is there to say?

World domination

You never heard this "Gears is on a decline" stuff while there was a chance of it going multiplatform but now that fans from the other console know they won't be playing it they're going to try to bash it

It's a franchise that has sold more than 95% of Sony franchises with only 4 games under it's belt

System seller!

It means that we'll see a lot of Gears of War sequels.

The story is going to be entirely different, thats a given. To be honest the main focus will be the story campaign not online.

I just hope they don't tweak it that much that doesn't feel like gears anymore.

Important, wallbouncing is kept, cover system still there, weapons still there.
