When they contacted MS for comment, a company red told them:
"Gears Of War 2 is a great franchise for the 360, and so we are putting all of our attention into making sure it stands out on that console. There are no plans to bring the game to the PC"

... Oh.. ='(

talking about Gears 2 on PC, I wonder why Halo 3 never made the jump.

Both Halo and Halo 2 were on PC too.

screw metacritic & sales, gears of war series are quality videogames!
bjornbear  +   2154d ago
I'm sorry but sales =/= quality
If you logic's were correct, then the Wii would be the best console out there and Wii Fit would be a must have game =/

Come on guys, maybe in the past sales made a difference, but once videogames have been so commercialized , sales no longer can fully reflect the quality of a game. =/

It's sad but true. However, I personally think Gears is a great franchise and the sales are justified, the same can't be said about LBP that is also an amazing game, but sold poorly in comparison which is a shame =/

Love how he said it was due to piracy there would be no pc release though as theres just as much piracy on 360 as PC thats why its selling so well as unlike the ps3 games for the 360 are FREE!!! Why pay £40 a game for PS3 when you can get em free for the 360??
DeadlyFire  +   2154d ago
I say its still possible to come to PC. Just maybe not in a way that everyone wants it to be in. Perhaps it will come to PC in a new Streaming cloud gaming service. One way for Microsoft to safeguard against piracy.

@ La Chance. Halo 3 PC is still very likely to come to PC in 2010. Microsoft has some unannounced games they want to reveal to come to Games 4 Windows Live. They didn't do it at E3, but they want to do soon I would think.

that would be a shame because I love horde mode and would love to see it with higher res, textures and more enemies on screen.

I think this is worthy news for someone who can't afford a 360 /doesn't want to have to buy one
But wants to play Gears of War 2. Its not a bad game IMO, and I believe if the 1st one made it to the PC, the 2nd one should too =)
Elven6  +   2154d ago
Someone can't afford a $200 console but they can afford a decent enough rig to play Gears 2 at a tolerable frame rate?
mrv321  +   2154d ago
Maybe he allready has a rig and can't afford the $200, like recently made un-employed.

Plus we all know Gears 2 on PC will be better than 360.
bjornbear  +   2154d ago
Like said above, people may have a high end PC and can't afford a 360
I mean, even if the person doesn't want a 360...

just because its cheap doesn't mean everyone WANTS to buy one.

Maybe people have better things to invest their money on, but since they have a PC that can run Gears 2, its good news =)
Elven6  +   2154d ago
Well if you don't want to buy one tough luck, the beauty of exclusives dude.
bjornbear  +   2153d ago
Oh trust me I know the beauty of exclusives
I have a PS3 ;) no tough luck. Wouldn't mind though, if I really could afford believe me I would =)
clintos59  +   2154d ago
I bought this game twice do to my first one getting scratched from my 360 from my surround sound being turned up loud & making my 360 shake.
Bring it over to the ps3 with dedicated servers & no worries of the game being pirated, this game would sell very well & would kick azz on dedicated servers. I can only dream lol.
ShabzS  +   2154d ago
they should bring it over.. its a great game ... maybe they can fix the matchmaking issues for the pc users as well ...

Just finished the SP campaign for Gears 2 on the 360 and loved it, but I'd buy it again for PC for updated visuals (and connections).

Gears 1 on the 360 was great, but the PC version was a step above as far as visuals & content.
MriownBOTH  +   2154d ago

Being a pc gamer,
I would love to see this game hit our shelves.
Although I do already own a 360 for this game alone, I would love to see it with some killer pc visuals. Maybe the dark corners collection would come bundled right in?
HammockGames  +   2154d ago
Good to know I'm not alone
Gears 2 (and the original) is the main reason that I bought a 360 as well. A high price to pay, but fantastic games.
MriownBOTH  +   2154d ago
i think it most likely will

@ blow

yeah i bought a ps3 mainly for blu-ray and gow3....but then after i while i realized i got it for gow3 uncharted uncharted 2 mgs ff heavy rain....many others.
i am very very excited for the end of the year.

....go drink some brews

Like the 360 has no piracy. What a stupid excuse.
darkequitus  +   2154d ago
If you are playing a pirated game, then you cannot connect your modded box to live.
Mr_iClu7ch  +   2154d ago
This is GREAT :D
Means that my gamerscore will raise 1250 Points :D :D :D

Bring it!!
I hope it gets ported to the PC
Its the only game I like from the 360.
xg-ei8ht  +   2154d ago
Would you kindly stfu about metaidiotic already, learnt nothing have you guys.

Play the games, enjoy the games and move on.
Tee7soo  +   2154d ago
i played the first gears on my pc and loved it , so i really hope there well be a port for gears 2 on the pc !
don't be a hater be a gamer .
thetorontokid  +   2154d ago
Gears 2 was so disapointing
I loved the first one, second one just ruined the franchise for me. Pacing of game was just off, and the story was just retared, they just went for shock value, and didn't work.
meatnormous  +   2154d ago
Maria and Taz were put there to try and deepen the emotion of the game but did very little for me. I loved Gears 2 but the last boss was a JOKE.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2154d ago
MS just can't win.

"Xbox 360 needs more exclusives! MS you don't have any exclusives to justify purchasing a 360!"

"MS why are you making this a 360 exclusive!?! You are dissing your customers by not putting Gears 2 on the PC. I hate you! But.... I also hate you because you have no 360 exclusives!"

Honestly, why shouldn't they keep this on the x360? They need to hold on to this as an exclusive console game, otherwise whats the point of having a console if your exclusives end up on the pc? Yes, im aware that its Games for Windows but wouldn't keeping this thing on the console help sell more 360s?

Sure, the upgraded visuals would be nice. I dont really care one way or the other but id think that all who really wanted to play this buckled down and purchased a 360.

Nice Avatar btw GEC

Microsoft don't publish PC games anymore. They haven't published anything in 2008 and have nothing stated for 2009.
Pandamobile  +   2154d ago
Wrong comment.
Mr_iClu7ch  +   2154d ago
They publish yes.
Alan Wake wil be published for Pc.
free2game365  +   2154d ago
Alan Wake was stated as a PC game ever since it was in development. It was always shown on the PC before and I believe only showed on the Xbox 360 for the first time at E3.
psbeyond  +   2154d ago
Same thing happened with Gears last time.

"It won't ever come out on PC we swear."


"Oh btw it's out on PC now, with extra content you can't get on the xbox version. Sorry for the wait."

I bet they will release gears 2 and halo 3 as release titles for windows 7
Pandamobile  +   2154d ago
I bought Gears of War for my PC. There's like no one playing online though. I like the single player and coop though.
devilhunterx  +   2154d ago
well duh. Does XB2 has real exclusives?

Yeah, it's called $50 a year subscription fees.

Neo604  +   2154d ago
seem like you don't need the 360 to play Gear games.
better yet free torrent and better graphic.
better yet free online.
Silber  +   2154d ago
Gears of War 2 is one of the best Games this Gen, i hope PC Gamers can get their Hands on it. Even if Cliffy B. stated it will not come to the PC - that was 2 years ago and now it coud be the best time.
KionicWarlord222  +   2154d ago
Bring it too pc...with cross gaming.

First game was "very good" on the 360 and "just about okay" on the PC... if Gears 2 PC is gonna be similar to the first game, then i'm not that interested and i certainly won't care if MS never release it on the PC, just like i'm not complaining about Halo 3 not coming to the PC....

One thing we have to remember is that 360 gamers and PC gamers have different expectations, likes and dislikes....something that does very well on the 360(or consoles in general) may not be so well received on the PC and vice versa. For example, Assassin's Creed.....nuff said.

Gears 2 ftl.

Really Gears of war 2 on pc? The first one was terrible on the pc, all the gow pc games were recalled. What makes anyone think this will be any different?
