this is why we buy games on 360 not pc

Well, some of us. Admittedly the PC version of Gears is inferior, but in most cases PC versions are the definitive editions.

PC version seemed better to me.

I meant the general opinion, but you're probably right :D

You obviously don't possess the PC version. 10x better. Higher res, more detail, higher fps(frames per second) and more maps including xbox dlc, and you get map editor with the pc version plus custom maps from the community. Only thing about PC version opposed to xbox is that xbox version has more people currently playing it.

So just torrent the damn thing. GoW was not that great anyway.

I actually paid for the game. Spent 50% of the time playing and the other 50% tweaking .INI files, because game ran like sh!t. Finally, got it to run perfect, highest res, highest level of detail. Unfortunately, by the time it was done, I was at the last boss fight.

That's what I get for NOT pirating it.

shouldn't have been on the pc anyway.

Bought it, loved it, (got a quick fix) still love it. Gears PC looks really good, trumps most games out there including Crysis.

Some had trouble cuz it "ran like crap", I would say get a better rig - you got it for Crysis! LOL. Mine runs beautifully with everything turned up.

Unfortunately it was handed over to another company who ported it over to PC, regardless it still looks and plays awesome. Hopefully they'll come with a fix soon. Or else my system clock will never be right. ;)

That is retarded really doesn't affect the pirate users but the people who brought it that makes sense
