"Most of you would have read the title and screamed "Blasphemy!!" but if you read on you will see there are many a valid reason for Epic games to release Gears of War 3 on the PS3." ~Badassgamerblog
*grabs popcorn* This is going to be fun.
I think if Gears of War was a multi-plat game, it wouldnt get as much attention as it gets now, same with any exclusive really (same with Resistance). It would just be another good game to play and not a big block-buster exclusive. Games get ALOT more attention if they are exclusive, more advertising and attention etc.
Firstly you can say the same about any exclusive selling better if it was multiplatform. And as for the other 2 points they are completely void anyway. If the game was multiplatform you couldn't get the most out of the ps3 and blu-ray would be irrelevant. Most pointless article in a long time. Typical of badassgamerblog I must say.
This article fails... why not have at as a 2D side scroller while we're at it?
nice !!.. loving the obvious headine... fight minions fight
Gears on PS3 article # 2304914839201 Next Please.
at this rate the Gears to PS3 articles will never pass the MGS4 to 360 articles.
What makes you think that putting it on the PS3 would be any better? The game is still f*cking broken. Here, let me chainsaw this asshole, dive roll away WHILE he's getting chainsawed and run across the map in 5 seconds. That's the kind of game BREAKING glitches they have.
This "article" is completely ridiculous... a complete waste of space. It offers nothing either in concept or in content... it is another example of a blogger thinking of some way to garner hits... I am not dissing Gears, but there are soooo many other games that I think are far superior (not just the "usual" PS3 exclusives that always get mentioned, but multi-platform titles as well, that I have no desire or care to see Gears on the PS3.
Why should Epic put gears 3 on the ps3. When exclusive that do come out on the ps3 don't really sell. Why throw money away on a system that only Internet fanboy will ever buy. Look at KZ2,LBP,R2,ect. Games sell on the 360 because it's a game system. So every 360 is used for that very reason. Where as more people use the ps3 as a blu-ray player. I admitt maybe they should put the movie of gears on the ps3. Since it will be the only thing that will sell.
why play mgs4 on any console when you can play it on youtube?
Quick cook so more popcorn this thread is building fast!!
it looks like badassgamer is possibly becoming the next hiphopgamer site. All they are is speculation and why something SHOULD happen. Absoulutely no news whatsoever.
They are working with a unified memory on the 360 and they have issues. What makes this guy think that Epic would get it right on the PS3's split RAM. They would have to totally change they way they develop the game to make it cross platform. Remember those 360 lead development games don't work so good on the PS3.
If we're using bada$$gamers logic, we should demand Insomniac games make Resistance 3 multiplatform. Why not? It sounds just as bad. Some games/franchises should stay platform exclusive.
I Think Thats What Is Meant By The Article I Think They Shouldn't Bother Unless There Going To Bring Out On PS3 First & Then Ported Down To The 360 But Like Most People Said It Would Be Good Addition Either Way
UT3 for PS3 looks exactly like GeoW 2. Same amount of Anti Aliasing and everything. Also, when comparing the UT3 for PS3 and 360, the PS3 version honest to God runs better. It has an optional install, but its about 1.2 gigs, and it cuts load times in almost half.
Isn't Gears of War one of the few IPs that Microsoft actually owns? Why would the 2nd sequel be on Sony's system when Microsoft owns the IP?
Gears on PS3 is as likely as Resistance on Xbox 360. So forget about it. MGS4 on the other hand, has been a multiplatform title in the past, that's why it has all chances to meet the same fate now.
I'd like to know which fanboys disagreed with my comment. Please, give me some feedback. Maybe its the badassgamerblog people defending their abomination of a website.
Another on of these worthless articles? When will see "Why Killzone 3 should be on the Xbox 360"... What part of "exclusive rights" do these people not get?
Quote: Thirdly, with the Blu-Ray disc, there is no doubt EPIC games would have less constraints on what they can offer the player, larger levels, better sound, more content in every area of the game, it would be a real shame for Gears of War 3 to launch on the Xbox 360's DVD9 disc, and due to size constraints become a shadow of the game EPIC would have wanted it to be. Think about it. Costs mean more to developers than merely making a game "larger, with more content in every area of a game" - just because of extra disc capacity... no developer is going to make a game LONGER gameplay-wise if the costs associated with it are too exorbitant. BEFORE this generation launched, many Publishers/Developers said games WOULD-NOT-BE longer concerning gameplay, because of the high costs involved. Instead, many stated that they would be more concerned with quality vs quantity. As for being "larger"... that depends on the game and the gameplay design... not just for the sake of being bigger. Larger gameplay areas also use up more memory... so developers can't just make everything larger. There's a memory budget to work within.. along with many other considerations. There's always going to be trade-offs... either graphically, or in another processing area. How many 1st party PS3 games - that aren't RPG-type games have OVER 12-15 hours of actual gameplay?
@Whitto you are correct sir! This game is only good as an exclusive and should hopefully stay exclusive to the 360. I am not a 360 fanboy I just like to have good exclusive games on each platform its just good for the industry. If not there will not be a console next gen or only one console and pure videogame companies. I hope that is the case and that if you want you can get different services and the like however I don't think that will happen yet. In addition I seriously think that the PS3 audience will not gravitate towards this game like the 360 audience. Shooters aren't important to Sony's fanbase so this would end up just another great among many and really its not life and death to play this game plus if you have a PC get Gears 1 cause its really hasn't evolved above and beyond from the second to the first, just more of the same stuff.
I would like my bubble back. Please and thank you. TGSI
I DO NOT WANT GEARS ON MY CONSOLE. gears is something geared for the 360 pardon the pun. It's last 2 games were on the 360 so why should it be on the ps3? the PS3 dosen't want or need gears at all. its like if resistance 3 went on the 360 people would be like WTF? so no I hope gears stays on the 360 I personally played gears on the 360 and thought it was only okay but to be honest Gears is one of the defining xbox games like mario going on a different console its just not right besides as someone stated earlier it would not get as much attention.
keep the unreal engine on the dated pc/console hybrid.
behalf of ps3 owners ,GEARS OF WAR NOT INTEREST US:)
Dude, you dont speak for every PS3 owner. Just yourself. Some people can only afford/warrent one console, I'm sure there are plenty of PS3 owners who would love the opportunity to play the game. We're not all fanboys, some people just like playing games. Hard to believe I know. Still, it wont happen.
i remember sony fans saying the same about ninja gaiden 2, then when it was announced they came in there pants
Dont speak for all of us.....I would love Gears on PS3, its a brilliant game. We're not all fanboys and we can appreciate good games when we see them, and Gears is one of them.
Yea, there are easily a couple games I would pick up really fast if I could play them on my ps3.
i'm a PS360 owner and if I didn't have a 360 already I would have bought one for Gears. Games should be exclusive to one system at least just to maximize the potential of that system. I don't think MGS4 would have looked as awesome as it did if it had been multiplatform.
There a quite a few games I would love to come to PS3, Gears, Mass effect, table tennis and some other third party games...
put fishy boy.although i own both its good to see gamers like yourself who like playing and enjoying games and not sold to the fanboy BS.
Go to the Epic forums. Just about everyday you see a PS3 fan make a thread asking for it to be ported to PS3. Fishy is right, I'm sure some PS3 owners wouldn't mind playing Gears on PS3. It's a great game.
id like gears of war 3 on my ps3. epic makes more money and make a better game. therefore everyone is happy.
i don't think we will see the gears games on the ps3 plus if you want the games so much play them on the 360. yes it would be great to have them on ps3 but there are enough games to play if we never get it on the system. they are amazing games though i remember playing the 1st gears on my bros 360 at the time there was nothing like it. but 360 has gears and ps3 has uncharted so its not like we don't have an amazing game ourselves @Crematory lol m8 you speak for your self not for all the Playstation community if gears was announced for the ps3 i think alt of ps3 owners would be happy as i said they are great games @air1 m8 what are u talking about honest question? sony fanatics? not all people with a ps3 are sad some just like playing games next time you label people a fanboy look in the mirror you hypocrite
Even though it would be extremely satisfying to watch the little 360 kids throw fits, it just wouldn't feel right. That's like God of War 3 going on the 360 but the only difference is that they could use a AAA exclusive or two lol. Edit: disagree troll on the loose lol.
Actually the main difference there is God of War will NEVER come to 360 as its a Sony game. Just like Halo will never come to PS3 as its a Microsoft game. Gears however is possible on PS3 as its not owned by Microsoft at all. Just how final fantasy came to 360.
there is a troll on the loose...and he edited his comment to complain about well deserved disagrees.
The Graphics are not Good enough for it to be on the PS2 No Thanks The BoTs can Keep this Sluggish,Outdated,Overated Pile of Crap
Sounds like you actually have to play the game. sony fanatic comments and youtube videos shouldnt count as some form of review. god knows that a game cant be good if it doesnt have the best graphics.
@nelson since you hate the 360, would love to take a game form them. even just for the bragging rights
because it would save it from dying.
gears *looks* like it would feel clunky on the ps3 controller
not this again
gears of war 3 should be released on the next xbox.
5. . .4 . . .3 . . .2. . .1 . . . .
i honestly couldn't care less if this game came to the ps3 or not. honestly i see a gears of war 2 review i think its very similar to killzone 2. Pretty graphics and repitive, cumbersome gameplay, with too much american culture infused into it. For some reason i really hate shooters this gen.
thats the problem with you sony fanatics you see a review or watch a youtube video and then talk down about it as if you actually played the game.. i mean really how the hell do you know that the game play is cumbersome when you never played it? what happened to gamers this gen??
Yeah shooters have had a real strangle hold on this gen, it's nice that the genre is progressing but jeez I'm sick of em. If only other genres could enjoy such a rapid progression, the fighting and rpg (becoming a shooter at the expense of role playing kinda defeats the point) genres are particularly stuck in their ways.
@8 epic is a us based company and guerilla games is based in europe(i dunno go figure)guess the scripts and voice acting for both was done in the us. Too much american culture infused into it :P. I did like how in resistance 1, you got to hear britsh soldiers bsing and cursing. Considering most shooters are made by us based devs, get used to it.
what kinda gamers are you sony fanatics this gen, seriously... no wonder sony isnt doing good on the software you ppl get stuck on 1 game and assume that every other game sucks. why wouldnt you want the option of another game? thats just stup!d..
smoking BUD is bad for you kids.
"Why he's overrated: Speaking of 'roid rage, check out this loser. Marcus Fenix is the kind of muscle-bound buffoon that makes even guys like Kratos seem like introspective philosophers. His personality consists entirely of grunting, shouting, and shooting. As much as Epic Games has tried to fool gamers by licensing tie-in novels and comic books, we all know the truth. There is no real story to be had for Marcus in Gears of War, aside from arm up, take aim and go on a bug hunt. It's all about big men with bigger guns shooting generic aliens over and over again. Calling Marcus Fenix one of the definitive gaming characters of the current generation is technically accurate, but also misleading. There isn't any real character to be had here." http://stars.ign.com/articl... This is why I say "meh"
And it did have AWESOME graphics..FOR THAT TIME. Now though, from what I've heard Gears 2 is just crap with the new online matchmaking. That's what drove me to play gears so much was the fantastic online. That and the campaign, which I heard was pretty sweet for Gears 2. Wouldn't know though, too busy playing Killzone 2 on veteran. ;)
Something tells me MS needs Sony's games a whole helluva lot more than Sony needing something as mediocre, yet fun, as Gears of War.
you honestly believe that? even if the sony exclusives are better, they don't sell as well. and since these big corporations have one central responsibility...appeasing their stock holders, i'd say it's likely the other way around. with that said, i'm sure both companies would be happy to get each other's exclusives. but who are you to make such an outlandish claim? even halo wars, which didn't score as well as killzone, is the best selling exclusive so far this year. *just to preempt any attempt to call me a 360 fanboy cuz i said this guy is clearly biased. I never said i think xbox is better. I simply said that a companies motivations are profit, and this "gamer's" motivation to make comments like that is based purely on his or her biased opinion.
They don't sell as well? You mean in week 1 or YTD, since you want to play analyst? "and since these big corporations have one central responsibility...appeasing their stock holders, i'd say it's likely the other way around." Why do you think SONY has vested some much in SONY 1st party titles? 3rd party success does sh!t for their stock, but 1st party success means what? Halo Wars was the best selling 360 exclusive puppet. My bias is only because every 360 I've ever owned has broke. You'd call a duck a duck, right?
you are still using bias. i don't care if your 360 breaks 20 times, that doesn't change the FACT that halo 3 has sold 10 million, gears of war 1 is 5-6 million, gears 2 higher than that. meanwhile even the top selling ps3 exclusive is around 3 million, and most are about 1 million or less. and you see how there's a difference between a fanboy and someone who can use facts to support their claims. you like the games better, and that's fine, but that doesn't mean everyone does. "Halo Wars was the best selling 360 exclusive puppet. My bias is only because every 360 I've ever owned has broke. You'd call a duck a duck, right?" -puppet? so again..you're arguing a selfish point of view. i was simply talking about sales figures. not quality. i don't care how you feel about it, i don't think anyone cares about your personal game preference. but the FACT is that is has sold more copies than killzone 2 in total and week to week. but total sales is all that matters for the stock holders. so as i said, it's about profit. not what YOUR wishful thinking. the FACT is there's no question MS is having major hardware issues cuz of RRoD. nobody is disputing that. you can't have a very high failure rate and not lose money on your hardware. but as far as software sales are concerned, they're sitting pretty. and your sole claim was that MS wants sony's exclusives more than the other way around. if you look at the numbers, it's clear who's moving more software units. so again, i ask, what are you basing your claim on if not your ridiculously apparent prejudice?
The top PS3 exclusive is 3 million? MGS4 at 4.5 mil is waving to you. Tell you what...when you know anything about this topic and can debate it with something factual, reply back. Almost forgot, there is another fundamental difference in Killzone 2 and Halo Wars. Mainly, KZ2 will still be on the charts next month where Halo Wars will not. Selling a lot, fast, is nothing special. Just selling a lot should suffice.
dude come on now...you can't be serious. that's your third idiot statement in a row. you keep trying to argue but you are just saying garbage. you don't know how sales will be in the next month. that's a prediction that is, again, based on nothing but your dim witted perception. and thank you for pointing out MGS's 4.5 million. so i guess i stand corrected. after all 4.5 million is more than 6 (gears of war)...and definitely more than 10 (halo 3). i don't know how many times or ways i can say, i'm not arguing quality. i happen to love a couple of sony's exclusives and a few of microsoft's. i am talking about sales ONLY. i'm glad this is my last bubble cuz i'm tired of talking about this. it's senseless to ever try to make a point based in fact when dealing with a blatant fanboy.
What does the sales of Gears vs MGS4 have to do with anything? Oh, Gears sold 6 MILLION (with double the US install base) compared to MGS4's 4.5 MILLION. Do you see that? MILLIONS. It's like whining over a wrinkled $100 bill. GTF over yourself dude.
Killzone 3 to be on Xbox 360 .More News at 11:00. (See what i just did there)Just let it go . Gears will allways be on the 360 , nuff said.
"(See what i just did there)" Made an idiot of yourself?
the dog got pwned. again
I have no idea what you did there.
