Albert Penello And Major Nelson React To Fan Made Vid Of Gears Of War Not Being On PS4

Karam Elahi writes: "A recent video created by YouTube user The Anchorman V using the infamous “Hitler Reacts to…” clip, shows Hitler’s reaction to the Gears of War franchise not being picked up by Sony as an exclusive acquisition. A pretty funny video video in its own right, was enough to tickle the funny bones of Albert Penello and Larry Hryb of MS."

This was hilarious, seeing some of the upset ps4 fans makes it that much better. you alt they always tell XB1 gamers to have a sense of humor. we have been ragged on since June, feels good to have a week of good news. The funny part is that there was a lot of truth in that meme.

Jughead3416823d ago

I don't get the XBOX/PS4 hate. Why? It's getting old to me. Why rejoice over PS4 not getting gears? What do you get from it? XBOX owners can never play Uncharted or God of War. But so what. It's all stupid. I hope both systems do as good as possible. I have a PS4 and hope to get an XBOX this year some time. Hopefully. The better they both do, the better my experiences will be.

ZodTheRipper823d ago

The fact that two well-paid executives of a huge company are publicly making fun of a lame hitler parody shows how low they are right now.

GTgamer823d ago

@truefan of Xbox
Yup because gears of war wasn't always on Xbox oh wait it was so why would sony fans be upset that doesn't add up to me.

So you were just absent from the internet for the entirety of last generation?

HaveAsandwich823d ago

i didnt see many sony fans clamoring for gears. everyone knows its a ms thing. just buy a 360 too see whats up.

NeoTribe822d ago

Trust me, nobody is shedding a tear over not getting gears lol. Even xbox people didnt care much about the news. They thought it was gonna be something good.

Studio-YaMi822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

All I see is Microsoft throwing money at the maker of that video(like they throw money to shush gaming journalists i.e. the Machinima thing) & the Xbox fanboys damage control.

Seems legit,hahaha,I mean seriously at the end(buy an XboxOne)? that just SCREAMS desperation.

Ultra822d ago

MisterX and the clowns are circle jerking it like a victory.

The drama continues...

dale_denton822d ago

you really think ps4 fans want gears of war that bad? lol

LeCreuset822d ago

Since when does your preferred console manufacturer spending money that could have been spent developing an exclusive, and reassigning resources that could have been used developing exclusives, just to keep PS4 owners from also playing a game which you would have received, count as good news?

UltimateMaster822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

A lot of BS on numbers.
Halo 3 was just sold bundled with millions of Xbox 360. I could argue that Wii Sports is the best selling game of last gen since it was bundle with most of all Wii Consoles.
30fps for Infamous SS? Says the people who has Tomb Raider locked @30fps while Titanfall is only 720p and not 1080p.
Oh well, there's still plenty of better Hitler Video:

UltimateMaster822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Oh, and yeah, Phil Spencer is a true gamer.
Only jack-asses clowns would laugh or even think this is a good publicity stunt.
That's Microsoft PR for ya...
I don't see why these 2 still have a job after being arrogant dipsticks: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

gigoran822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Is that because PS4 users think MS making a big deal out of GOW is really really really funny because it's so pathetic? Next thing you're gonna say making a HD port of the Halo 2 (AKA: Halo 1.5, go buy the next one to get the complete game) is a console saver.

These announcements where they hold out a piece of trash and the fanboys think it's great give me a good laugh every day. So please keep them coming. I want to roll on this laugh till the next gen comes. Please enjoy playing with last gen standards on a... hahaha... "next" gen system.

NewMonday822d ago

Do XB1 fans know they were getting 2 games, the suspended Black tusk game and Gears, but they will only get one now? And they are happy with that?

Smh

UncleGermrod822d ago

I'm just glad to see MS being aggressive here. I really do think we will start to see a better flow of exclusives coming this gen. I mean, I kind of didn't care if it went multiplat, because I own both, but I also didn't want the next-gen debut of one of my favorite series to be plagued by resolution whores.

To be fair, I would have gotten it on MS either way because I prefer their online service and that's where my friends are. But I could almost guarantee it would have had a better res on ps4 and every article would have just been sad. Just kind of relieved is all.

I think certain franchises sort of have a home on certain consoles. In the end, I am not cheering because ps4 fans cannot play it. But it is pretty funny how many notorious PS fanboys will post about gears, calling it "dead", as if to reassure themselves that xbox doesn't have another good exclusive.

SonyAddict822d ago

Dude are you like 10 years old!?.

scott182822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Just like Micro executives to give props to a troll video. classy.

When did any Playstation fan ever say they thought this game would come over in the first place? It was always only on Xbox and nobody was crying over it.

AsimLeonheart822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Trust me bro, not many PS fans care if the GoW franchise comes to Playstation or not. Gears of War is already past its prime with a completed trilogy and a poorly received prequel. IMO MS bought an old and washed up race horse that wont make a difference in the console Derby.

Spartan119822d ago

@johndoe

Nice try but no where near as funny

mp1289822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

The reason this parody isn't funny is because the PS4 (unlike Germany) isn't loosing the war. Ps4 fanboys have no reason to be desperate. Its the other way around.

MazzingerZ822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

I played the real gears games on the X360 being the first one the one my friends always wanted to play most even when gow 2 was out as it was broken for a while, gears had its cycle for me, my friends are not online anymore and I have less time to play, anyone that wanted to play gears I guess have already done it. That's why Epic sold it, no future in there, spin-offs is not their style.

Cheaper for MSFT than acquiring new studios or putting a creative team to develop and create a new IP, easy cash

Not sure why people celebrates this or why Msft tries to make it appear like a big punch to SONY, I don't care and guess I'm not alone, looking fwd to inFamous, The order and the other new franchises

I'm sure noteven X1 owners went all nuts over the news reg MSFT acquiring the rights but rather killed the little hope of more new stuff this gen rather than halo-forza-gears-fable combo all over again and one new exclusive here and there

amiga-man822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Actually the one posted by Johndoe made far more sense Spartan and was funnier because of it, the one posted in the article sounds like desperate fanboys spouting M$ propaganda and the more enlightened will see it as exactly that.

The xbox is a second rate machine no amount of Hitler spoofs will change that.

X-Alchemist822d ago

I can't believe everyone on this site is taking this so seriously! These comments are facinating.

This video was funny. Who cares if it "wasn't completely accurate"

So many of you are like "omg they can't laugh at that, they're so pathetic and unprofessional, ps4 is dominating"

Lighten the fuck up, it's a joke, enjoy the video and stop looking so far into it.

JasonKCK822d ago

I helped fail the original posting of this video. Not because I didn't think it was funny, but because I didn't thing Sony fans could handle it. After reading the reactions looks like I was right.

johndoe11211822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

@spartan

I'm gonna enlighten you spartan. It's not about being funny, it's about being accurate. Now, go run and complain to your other 299 friends.

SoulSercher620822d ago

Hate to break it to you but the PS4 will be getting better games so enjoy your Gears while Microsoft runs it down the drain while we enjoy BETTER games.

Withdreday822d ago

I think we all see why you just have 1 bubble...

geddesmond822d ago

I think the people who ever cared about the gears series already owned an Xbox 360. If any PS4 gamers wanted a gears game then it was the thousands of old Xbox players who bought PS4 instead of Xbox this gen. Anyway if Epic isn't making the game then its just gonna be trash to me.

Imagine another developer took over from Naughty Dog for the next Uncharted game or EA gave the Battlefield franchise to the developers who created Brink.

tommygunzII822d ago

Am I the only one who could care less about Gears? Keep those tired games on Xbox, we have plenty over here.

TronEOL822d ago

Oh that's so sad that Xbox gamers were getting ragged on since June.

How about the entire internet ragging on PlayStation and their fans for about 3 years when the PS3 launched, and with little to reason giving that situations outcome.

The entire XboxOne launch feels like a huge build-up of bad Karma for being snotty assholes, on both Microsoft's and their fans side.

And regardless, there's not much to be excited about here. The guys handling Gears apparently didn't do a good job on the last game, that series is a shell of it's former self. PS4 gamers lose nothing. Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Media Molecule, Sony Santa Monica, Ready at Dawn, etc, are all still making exclusives for PlayStation, so we don't need to care.

GhostTurtle822d ago

Coming from someone who went from 360 to PS4, Gears of War: Judgment was garbage. It doesn't effect me at all that the game isn't coming to Sony. Keep that garbage on the one.

Dir_en_grey822d ago

I don't think "PS4 fans" would care about Gears of War in the first place anyway since nobody would even expect it to not be an xbox exclusive.

But now it's more like "Gears of War fans" would get upset by this because they know the game will be gimped compared to if it was to be made on PS4 and MS got rid of that possibility.

BallsEye822d ago

Hitler speeks the truth. Gamers go where games are.

MetaReapre822d ago

@ballseye
Yea that's why real gamers try to get every system.

But getting on topic, IDK about everyone being uptight about this lil meme thing but i actually found it pretty funny.

ThunderSpark823d ago

Um.. someone please tell the fanboy that made this video that Sony sold over 4.2 million PS4s and over 2 million copies of Killzone. That's a great attachment rate.

And another thing. Playstation has a ton of exclusives which is why one exclusive doesn't do astronomical numbers like Halo which is one of a few exclusives Xbox has. So playstation gamers are constantly buying games throughout the duration of the console, unlike the 360 which hasn't had a decent exclusive in God knows how long.

Anyway, we the gamers are winners in this battle.

Thepharaoh823d ago

Take a joke man. There's no need to downplay halo's sales either.

Gran turismo sold pretty darn well and so did Grand theft auto.

Certain games just don't have the mass appeal that other games do.

Why can't 9 million bros and gals just love halo . Do people really have to be out of options in order to enjoy halo ?

Ctiboi2010823d ago (Edited 823d ago )

@Whathappened

Well man this video was obviously a joke, but I found a chart for you to review since you are bringing up software sales being higher on the PS3 due to the Xbox 360 having no games other than a few exclusives. The chart was last updated earlier in January. Hope it is useful for you.

http://www.vgchartz.com/ana...

P.S This video wasn't meant to be taken seriously at all.

gamer2013823d ago

Sony sold so many copies of Killzone because there is nothing else to play currently.

Ctiboi2010823d ago

@Gamer2013

Don't downplay Killzone: SF, I hear it's actually a pretty fun game. Not to mention gorgeous. And there are other games to play on the PS4 with more to come.

GTgamer823d ago

@gamer2013
Combine all of the X1 exclusives sales and tell me how much it beats KZSF sales im dying to hear this.

Muffins1223823d ago

But add them all up and they still dont equal the sales of halo 3....lol if you get the reference

Patrick_pk44822d ago

What bothers me the most is the inconsistencies in the video. Kingdom of Hearts and Metal Gear are Playstation exclusives? Nope, never were. They were released on other platforms, such as Nintendo's and Microsoft consoles. It's like saying Gear of War was always an exclusives, however it was just not on PS3.

UncleGermrod822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

that is very untrue. Halo sells well because it has an avid fanbase...it has always been the true definition of a system seller. It is not simply because it's all they have.

And throwing hardware sales numbers around doesn't change the fact that someone wanted to poke a little fun after everyone made such a huge deal over the possibility of a next-gen gears.

More importantly, you talk about attach rate, but the xbox 360 had a better attach rate than the ps3 at the end of it all. So do not argue a point which you do not know about. I for one agree that PS has more exclusives, and yes they tend to be great games, but this is just a funny vid made to make people laugh. Take a deep breath, all will be ok.

TheSaint822d ago

Gears is meh, in my opinion.

I own a 360 so I'm not fanboying.

No_Limit822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Saw Killer instinct with Spinal in the MS store and conldn't resist and broke down and bought the XB1 today. I am now good with 720p/60FPS Titanfall and 1080P/30FPS inFamous in March.

geddesmond822d ago

Halos not even made by the people who made the series great. It will still have millions of fans who swear by it but without bungie it will fall short of the first 3 games. Bungies new game looks amazing which is multiplat and after that game people will be saying Halo who.

People don't grasp how when a new developer takes over a game. Their vision of the game changes to that of its creators. Sometimes new ideas work for the better, but in most cases a series gets destroyed. Just look at the many stages Resident Evil went through and now that series is beyond crap.

Also the more stories you tell in a world the more people can get sick of it.

It would be funnier if there were any real life PS4 owners who gave a damn about GeoW

This was a very funny video. Gamers are funny people. The PS fan that made the parody of the $100 off of a PS4 in response to MS's advertisement was smart and funny as well. People take a step back and you can see how silly this made up war is. Keep it light and laugh a little.

KillrateOmega822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

As a PS4 gamer, this video kind of hurts my heart, but I'll be damned if it's not ringing with truth.

I cannot deny that the PS4's launch line-up was a little thin, but I bought the system because I knew that high-quality games would be coming down the road.

Spartan119822d ago

Mate most console launches are pretty thin on the games front. I havnt played my X1 in weeks and have been going back playing some ps3 and 360 games I haven't finished. I told myself I wouldnt buy the PS4 until june but I think im caving in. The games will come though and in a few years time im sure ill have a backlog of PS4 and X1 games that I cant find the time to finish.

One_Eyed_Wizard822d ago

Spartan's right. I also bought a PS4 at launch but I knew what I was getting into. I still play PS3 and PC more and I don't care much. inFamous is worth the wait for me.

christocolus822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Lmao... that was funny as hell. Showed some of my ps only pals and they had a good laugh too.

With all the memes,jokes and videos taking jabs at ms, its nice to actually see something this creative coming from the xbox fans for once. Lmao. Nice one...

Edit: why are people upset? It was fun when sony execs and fans troll ms and the xbox but its wrong and embarrassing when its the other way round? Wth? c'mon guys lighten up. Its just a joke.

Ps4Console822d ago (Edited 822d ago )

Yeah every sports fan uses this no big deal .

NumOnePS3FanBoy822d ago

This is somewhat funny but it actually portrays the stereotypical xbox gamer. They think because their very FEW exclusive sell more than Playstation's VAST selection of exclusives, somehow make them better. It goes to show that they will forever have this logic and will be exclusive deprived. And yes, a pro xbox person made this. It's obvious

come_bom822d ago

LOL. Yes it was quite funny.
