Zzz...*Fart* Zzz...

and ps3 gamers don't buy 360 games for their ps3s....NOR will they say anything good towards them, because there on 360 right?

CViper3551d ago (Edited 3551d ago )

Like most people did with Gears1, and the rest of the 360's exclusives. No need to upgrade since they appear to be using the same Unreal Engine from decades ago. Gears2 is sure to be a fun game, but its literally a rehash of the first one. I mean G4TV has to pretend "Wait if you think it look just like the first one.. buh uhb.. hold on'

Because it does.

Making the action take place on little Island maps that are no bigger than the maps in Gears1 isn't fooling anyone. WOW look at that amazing backdrop. That you are never going to venture to.

I'll be happy after everyone gets gears2 this year, and realizes that was the last good game the 360 put out in its lifetime.

When is the PC version coming out?

What are the specs for your PC?
Does your PC boot up a game as fast as a console?
Will the PC version have screen tear...no matter what settings you put it on?
Has your PC recovered from that time you told it you were going to buy Crysis?
Does it support achievements?

CViper3551d ago (Edited 3551d ago )

No Live. You won't have to pay to play online. Peer to Peer is free everywhere in the world except some places where idiots don't know any better. Gears of War(PC) came with achievements, not sure why they wouldn't repeat it this time around. They were the same as the 360 one, well minus the Brumak fight.

Jenzo, you are bull$hitting up the wrong tree with me.

I have my PC hooked up to my 5.1 theater & 1080p Projector. It stays on all the time, and yes. Games like COD4/Bioshock/UT3/Gears load very quickly because you install most of the game on your HDD.

There is no screen tearing in Unreal Engine titles with a basic videocard its not that advanced of a game. Stop trying to bash PC gaming, you just come off sounding completely retarded.

You can use your 360 controller with most Games For Windows, and it works fine.

Crysis is one of the most amazing things to experience in the world of gaming. Its a shame everyone cant, but thats life. I mean, you get to pretend Gears of War is the best looking Unreal Engine game out though, right? lol.

I mean Jenzo, are you really trying to bring up screen tearing? I mean.. honestly.. do you think the 360 is amazing hardware or something that trumps a PC powerful enough to run Crysis? Please dude. Tell me you are joking?

"He like most people will probably pickup the exclusive PC version which will have more features and run in a higher resolution."

Well... For Gears 1 PC gamers had to wait a full year.

I am not into playing old stuff, I want the new games. But I guess PS3 owners are used to play old games:

Lost Planet --> 2 years after 360 version
Oblivion --> 1 year after 360 version
Bioshock --> 1.5 year after 360 version
Dirt --> 0.5 year after 360 version

Plus you forgot this:

Epic isn't very happy with sales on PC. UT3 sold sh!t compared to the console versions. They even said that Unreal Engine 4 will be console only. They haven't announced Gears 2 for PC and MS just declared they want more 360 exclusives to really drive the sales.

1+1=2

Epic will be happy with more 360 sales instead of PC piracy and for MS it would drive the PC owners that played Gears 1 and want Gears 2 to buy a 360 for that game.

Too bad PS3 kiddy. You fail over and over again.

CViper3551d ago (Edited 3551d ago )

I remember playing a better version of Bioshock on PC, I remember Playing a better version of Lost Planet on PC, I remember playing a better version of COD4 on PC as well as a better version of Mass Effect. Which matters to me, because I'm a gamer, but I also have a job. So I can afford to wait for the superior version of PC titles to come out of the quick out the door console port.

I think you just stumbled into your own BS trap mate. Its called self ownage. You can pretend that you are an insider at Epic, but you aren't.

You are just some dude that trolls n4g with different names.

1 is Power of Green, and the other is "Themartatxboxkings" a joke of a website. So I understand why the delusions run so deep.

InMyOpinion3551d ago

@CViper - Even if their games get pirated they are still cheaper to develop and sell in much larger quantities on the 360 than on the PS3. Has your beloved MGS4 even reached a million yet?

TheMART3551d ago

@ Vipi

So you haven't read Epics own comments on the Unreal 4 Engine probably being console exclusive? mmmmhhh

"I remember playing a better version of Bioshock on PC, I remember Playing a better version of Lost Planet on PC, I remember playing a better version of COD4 on PC as well as a better version of Mass Effect. Which matters to me, because I'm a gamer, but I also have a job."

Right. Ofcourse the PC versions will always stay on top with resolutions also compared to the PS3. Question is not which version is better, question is which platform brings in the $$$$$

And fact is that the PC doesn't have to many paying customers. DMC4 is another game that suffered, we just read recently. Companies will go console exclusive because of that. No need to get the PC version out anymore if it just kills sales. Doesn't matter if you specific pay for them.

"I think you just stumbled into your own BS trap mate. Its called self ownage."

You sound like a very angry teenager that thinks he is always right. You're also comparing your scooter to your friends which one has the most bling bling right kid?

"You can pretend that you are an insider at Epic, but you aren't."

Again, go read up their own words about Unreal Engine 4.

"You are just some dude that trolls n4g with different names.

1 is Power of Green, and the other is "Themartatxboxkings"

And again, you're wrong. But as I said, because your weakness of your posts, you need to grab on something you believe in. If that what makes you feel better while you cry yourself into sleep, be my guest. You sound silly dude, and you probably are.

Go watch your MGS movie again on your BluRay player while we 360 owners keep playing the best games. Oh and one thing: Little Big Planet is the only interesting game on your console although it looks a bit kiddy.

This game does look great.

hazeblaze3551d ago

The game looks as great as the first one did. Unfortunately, it doesn't look much better... I guess I was just expecting more since it's coming out 2 yrs after the first one? Gears was the sh#t when it first came out b/c there was nothing like it on current consoles... but after the release of Uncharted & MGS4, this footage doesn't look quite as exciting. Still looks like it'll be fun though.
