Epic's Mark Rein's confirmed that Gears of War 2 won't be shown by Microsoft at Games Convention next week.
Gears 2 wasn't the reason Microsoft won E3... it shouldn't matter whether the King shows it now. Although at this point I think it's a safe assumption that GOW2 will be GOTFY.
What will they shown then? I mean I heard Sony has 12 or more announcements to make (Heavy Rain presentation included) but I hope Microsoft has a good show too. Hopefully they'll announce some new exclusives. E3 sucked for them since I was hoping to see some NEW games. At least Sony showed God of War 3, M.A.G, InFamous gameplay, R & C: Quest for Booty, Killzone 2 multiplayer footage, and Fat Princess! ^_^ My guess is that they will show off a trailer for the next Halo game. (The trailer that was pulled from E3)
You're right, nothing helped MS win E3 because they didn't win it.
a LBP rip-off theyv done singstar and buzz
"Although at this point I think it's a safe assumption that GOW2 will be GOTFY" GOW2 was released for the PS2 already :) If you mean GeOW2, then it's going to be: Game Of The Fictional Year. ;)
haha nice whop! You're coming along nicely EDIT - What is a buzz and where can I get some?
lol if you think MS won E3, you are damaged.
What else are they supposed to show? Gears is their biggest game this year.
Maybe they have something else they want to push...Mass Effect 2? Alan Wake? A brand new IP? Those "secret" Rare titles? Maybe not though. Maybe they'll just go for a subdued show. Edit: I think solidsnakus is right.
..I remember this like 3 years ago. Oh well
i guess you guys dont know, but the tards in germany banned gears 1 from being sold, thats why gears 2 wont be shown there.
This is the most logical answer.
So Microsoft giving up on Europe already? They not even going to showcase their biggest game of the year at the largest gaming event in Europe? Soo much for trying to "Win" Europe.
thanks for the comment nasim.
He's so delirous. You call him out and then he disagress with you 4 times. As if anyone else would. Nasim your a moron. Get a life bro. PLEASE. Please leave this site. Everyone can point out your stupid Fat princess Micheal Jones Yoshida stupid same NASIM agenda- delusional with reality comments. Everyone can tell Nasim.
His avatar and name are just too cool for me not to give him an agree and i really dont think he is nasim he never goes off on a tirade its usually funny quips asking people to take a seat.
Trust me. I guarantee you its Nasim. 110%
Apparently games4fun is Nasim too.
You're pulling off an 18th Century witch hunt, right? Nobody cares who this 'nasim' character is.
tell that to the 18th century women being hunted as witches. lol. anyway, i agree, nobody but fanboys care who nasim is, or who anybody who obviously have multiple accounts are. i'm a huge Playstation fan, but even I put nasim on my ignore list. cahlil, or whatever his name is, is also a top contender for my list, as i have no tolerance for blatant twisting of facts and numbers, and just outright making sh*t up. goes for the 360 fanboy side too (ie, Power of Green). on topic: Gears 2 isn't at Leipzig because Gears isn't sold in Germany. end of story. there's no fanboy, or console war conspiracy here.
I wouldn't be surprised if Gears of War 2 now has the same Release Date as Alan Wake,that is,Nevuary the 40th http://dyackflop.ytmnd.com/
When will u get a life? Let me guess the same date as Alan Wake. It was Nevuary the 40th right?
LOL @ Viktor E. Bookmarked + Bubbles. Stop crying Arsenic.
Well lets see who really is the ones crying ohhh the DRoids on the gears of war article. lol lamo ^^ wow Viktor E ur so cool man just the fact you listen to BoYz II Men lol wtf .............................. ............................... ............................... ................installing please wait.......butt but.....
One review and you are calling it a flop? Wow! I know you are a typical mental fishhead with last place syndrome but damn you are bordering on pityful by how hard you are trying. Being in last place is really hard for you isn't it? I would say play some games but when you've only had 1 exclusive retail game released this year I understand why you spend all day long here. When is your next exclusive? Oh yeah, at the end of the year. You wanna talk about flops let's talk about "The Year of the PS3". hahaha what a joke flop that was!
No Gears 2? Wait...this can't be right. What the hell are they going to show then?
Juuken They are going to show the next Halo game.Remember they did'nt show it at E3
Microsoft is showing the next Halo game.That would explain why they did'nt show up at E3
easy to flame i'm not even going to. Gears 2 will be awesome and the people saying they cant show it because Germany outlawed it actually sounds like a plausible story. You guys should be happy you can see that new Halo game you guys always go crazy for.
Guess they don't want anything to detract from the new Halo title.
Its because there is nothing good to show.
HAhahaHAHahahAHAHahahhAHAHahaH AHAH!!! good one.
to quote: “Microsoft doesn’t show Gears 2 at Leipzig because they don’t sell the game in Germany,” Rein told VG247 this morning. The game would get an AO rating in Germany anyways, and MS does not sell AO titles, hence its not gonna be released in Germany. As the GC has no Age restriction for entry you can not show AO content in public. Hence the 18+ titles can only be shown in private meetings that certainly will occur between the distributors and press representatives.
Who cares? I got Gears for PC and this game simply blows balls.
...sometimes to mention Gears,the PC version, and being unimpressed by it because Gears on PC doesn't do anything special or different. It would kind of be like bringing Resistance to the PC. On consoles these games shine brightly on the PC they're interesting not dullish but not as shiny either...wish I could articulate this better :/ ...I still sound kind of harsh...
You're a PS3 owner so you should be used to games blowing balls(or sacks!). I am not going to convince you to like Gears since that is your opinion but winning GOTY, huge sales and the fact that people still praise the game and use it as a benchmark to this day makes me think that you are in the minority. Gears of War kicks ass and Gears 2 will kick even more ass. I am optimistic that if MS isn't showing Gears 2 they have some new stuff to give the spotlight too.
Better ONE ultimate game than 2 or 3 solid games. Gears is still one of the best games out there. Word up!
...they need to show us some new stuff, things they've had tucked away in their back pocket in that pair of pants way back in the back of the closet, things like Alan (cough) Wake.
It's nothing to do with wanting to show new stuff, it's that they physically can't show Gears of War 2 in Germany.
...new stuff for 360 is good stuff for all. Blessing in disguise...and Alan Wake disguise I hope :)
They shown it a E3 plus germany s laws on violence stop this game entirely but what else are they going to show the only thing they have in there pocket that wasn t at E3 is this new Halo. And if what they said at E3 about not showing Halo there maybe a reason to debut it at Leipzig. Gears 2 will be the 360s GOTY not THE GOTY in my opinion.
i mean, i understand tradition and all, but hasn't there been a Halo at nearly every E3 since MS entered the gaming industry? lol. anyway, if we're lucky, they'll show off Alan Wake (but god forbid it doesn't look as good as Heavy Rain), and maybe a few more surprises. i'm not saying Halo shouldn't be at Leipzig, just that it doesn't really have the WOW factor that it used to. gamers are just as excited about new IPs as they are about their returning classics.
gears of war is the only good x-box 360 game the rest can go to hell 360 sucks ball PS3 4 LIFE
