If you follow gaming news, you can't get away from it. Countless rumors and speculation all hoping to see the Xbox 360 blockbuster title war over to the PS3. It's not going to happen so let's kill the rumor. Here's why.
I seriously thought it was God of War. They need new abbreviations. I thought God of War is the original GoW??
How many times do we have to go through this?
GoW = God of War Geow = Geometry Wars Gears = Gears of War
i also hate how God of War and Gears of War are both abbreviated as GOW. messes me up every time... i saw the title and was like, whaa? >.<
GoW = God of War Gears = Gears of War Few stragglers still left behind mixing it up from time to time.
Only an idiot would get Gears of War and God of War confused. It's simple if you read the context. Quit being stupid.
MGS = Microsoft game studios MeGS = metal gear solid... ? I mean what's our demarcation for these specific abbreviations?
i thought they were entertaining the absurd idea of God of War coming out for the 360......well the xbox fans can keep this one, we have better 3rd person shooters - Uncharted 1 & 2
Is this just his assumption?? cause after skimming through the article I might have missed the part where EPIC states that the next gears will be a MS xbox exclusive game still?! Anyway, can't wait for GOW to come out in march on the PS3!!
whew Im glad somebody finally came out and made an effort to stop this internet frenzy over gears going multiplat. /s
Well if MS is hiring developers to support Epic with the next Gears. It does sound a bit logical that it would stay exclusive. It is still a theory I guess but it does have some ground.
dude, one's a game studio the other is a game. They are completely different beings therefore can share the same abbreviation. They aren't from the same category, Gears of War and God of War are.
"MGS = Microsoft game studios MeGS = metal gear solid... ?" Nope. 1. Metal Gear Solid came out in 1998 and people have been calling it MGS since. Microsoft Game Studios were just created in 2002. 2. One is a game and the other is a game studio. 3. God of War came out on the PS2 in 2005 and was called GoW by people and the media for more than a year before Gears of War came out on the 360 in 2006. 4. We can call each game whatever we like. But the majority of people associate MGS with Metal Gear Solid, GoW with God of War, and Gears with Gears of War. For example... MJ could stand for Mick Jagger, Michael Jordan, etc. But the majority of people use it as an acronym for Michael Jackson.
Who even says it's going to the 360, my guess is the next GeOW will be a Xbox 3 exclusive!
Do we need journalists writing articles about silly fanboy rumors that we all know will never come true? I can see ME2 coming to PS3 (very unlikely however) but Gears? Never. That has been and will forever be an Xbox 360 exclusive... (and PC).
@1.6 - The demarcation is whatever abbreviation is older. GOW = God of War, because it was the original. MGS = Metal Gear Solid, because it was the original. Gears of War is GeOW or Gears, but you can still figure it out from the context, it's just annoying to have more than one game using the same acronym.
here's another one, but it doesn't concern Gears though.. ;P
When it goes to the PC (which was the rumor) it will no longer be exclusive to the 360. A PC isn't a 360, so exclusiveness will be lost; that's what exclusive means. I almost feel the need to shoot this article down, as it's creating news, not reporting it with much accuracy.
Who cares UT3 mods has Marcus Phoenix and the Cole train ,you can kill them all day!!! Plus if anyone has the balls to actually make a simple linear level and call it gears on UT3 do it!!!!! Unreal engine is there for you!!WHo needs Epic! But as far as im concerned Gears can be on PS3 and easilly beat the original if Epic knows their ASMP GPU Cell GPU code. But do they??
Also Ever heard of Quantum Theory!!! If these guys go out and get help from insomniac and others and learn how to leverage the power of PS3 this game might perhaps equal the efforts of GeOW BUt at what cost?? who's funding this game if at all?? Im just hoping the game is just as good; and im betting it will be!!! Massive bosses please !!and amazing cinematics!!!!! and variety of gameplay scenarios (drving tanks and aircraft and bombing missions, on creatures, would make it icing on the cage..GOOD luck Quantum theory!!! Take it to GeOw!!!!adn M$!!!!!!!!!! DO IT PRISE!! or FAIL and DISAPPEAR OFF THE FACE OF GAMING LIKE FACtor 5!!
The reasoning on the article is flawed though the reason people think its going multi-platform though is because Epic only have a2 game deal and going multi-platform isn't abandoning your market like the article states that's just a stupid, stupid thing to say if anything its expanding it. What a pointless article by a fanboy who s scared yet another exclusive will no longer be just that. Until we hear something from Epic we don't know anything. I think by now they would have come out and deny multi-platform though.
Xbox fans need this game so we can't take it. Without it they only have HALO 1, 2, 3, Halo wars, ODST and soon enough REACH. All those games!
GoW = Gears of War GodOW = God of War simple
Im sorry but for those who got this mixed up with God of War, open your eyes! Theres a picture!
Let's just start with the fact that I think Gears will remain MS exclusive. But IMO this makes no Logical sense whatsoever. "Rein wanted everyone to know that Gears of War 3 will be on the software giant's flagship console. Why? Because it don't make sense to jump ship, leave behind millions of fans and start afresh with a new base in the same generation." IF and that's a big IF, Gears were to come to PS3 who came up with the idea that it would abandon the 360?
I'm a huge Gears 1 fan, but Gears 2 blew chunks. The latest unreal also blows chunks. Epic is getting worse, so I don't expect much from Gears 3 More shiny wet textures, and more grayscale.
No, no. It's coming out on PS3 early next year and will conclude Kratos' tale.
Aw ya beat me to it. Bubbles for swiftness.
Thank you VERY much for killing this rumor! Because we OH SO BADLY want Gears of War on the PS3! OMG we are SO crushed by this news!
Yeah you're right. Marcus Fenix doesn't have long enough hair, and he's not wearing enough eyeliner for PS3 fans to want Gears on their console.
Actually, I beleive epic have stated that the next Gears will come out on next gen consoles, plus, they only signed a 2 game deal w/ MS initially. Whether or not they are going to work out another deal remains to be seen...
man this blog sucks so much it's hard to believe, even the name is lame. It's worse than HHG.
wtf does a PS3 owner need this game for anyway? We have more than enough AAA games out now and in the future.
As long as we got the Uncharted series it's all good.
Yeah we have a lot of great titles on PS3 but we'd also be damned fools to not except other solid titles as well. Quit acting like such a stuck-up prick and start acting more like someone who likes to play games.
Even PS3 fanboys are allowed to dream.
Don't want this game on the PS3.
people seem to give it to others when they approve of that person's comment...

You know Bubbles. MJ's old Monkey.
No offense, but I'm pretty sure allot of PS3 owners aren't that bothered about Gears. If i wanted to play it i would have bought an Xbox, it's not like i don't have the money. Xbox can keep gears, i got more than enough games to play. What's all the fuss about?
Both have great games and go both ways. I'm more than happy with my gaming log. I have non stop gaming since day one. Only one game that I would love to have on my 360 from the ps3 library and that is Demon's Soul. I love hard core games. But seriously, I'm behind as is. Gears of War is the biggest new franchise of this gen. I'm sure some ps3 owners that aren't stubborn would love to have this.
"Gears of War is the biggest new franchise of this gen" Wii Sports.
you are right!

it's almost clear that microsoft inflate their numbers in pr statements.
sony fans talking bout sales? god plz no
Whatever happened to; "we play games, not sales!" Hypocrite.
You got some great games among them "flops".
B-b-but teh PC!? Is not teh eksklusivs if on teh PC!?!
that's right soda. It's PC exclusive, not 360 exclusive... by your logic anyway.
Hmmmmm. I haven't heard any rumors about Gears coming to PS3 this year. I think that's pretty much a true XBOX 360 exclusive. I don't believe PS3 owners are sweating over Gears coming to the PS3 anyway That's what I have an XBOX for. Have I missed an article or rumor about PS3 owners "hoping" that Gears 3 is coming to the PS3 or something?
I don't think there are any articles about it, but a lot of forums have posts about people wanting it to go multiplat. Theres a few people on N4G that insist that Gears 2 will go to PS3 and Gears 3 will follow. Morganfell started the whole thing back when Gears 2 was coming out. He stated that he had "inside info" about it coming to PS3 and that he saw it running on PS3. I think EPIC actually had it running on PS3 but only for UE 3.5 purposes. I don't know if Gears will go to the PS3 or not, and frankly, I don't care. I just want Gears 3 to come out eventually.
GoW? God of Wars? *opens webpage* ohhhh Gears of wars. should have been GeOW. So its exclusive to xbox 360? good. i dont want that junk on PS3.
Junk? How so? Don't even mention the lag problem because it's gone unless the host is across the world from you. EPIC has kept it updated with title updates, and will continue to do so. But yes, I would love for you to please explain to me how the Gears of War franchise is junk? EDIT: No, sorry to you because Gears 1 and Gears 2 are my two most played games on the 360. If you play it often, you'd notice the HUGE improvements that have fixed some major issues Gears 2 had when it first launched. I'm American, and you know, it's funny, but I don't experience lag. You'd think I would, since I'm one of those "americans".
sorry buddy but gears 1 and 2 are just as laggy as day one, the only time it aint is when there are no americans about and even then its iffy, i play it almost weekly and have never noticed the improvments you speak of.
Maybe you should upgrade from dial-up.
There's no dial-up in Europe.
its not time exclusives u have wrong list ninja gaiden 2 sold more then 1 millions link http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... & http://www.videogamesblogge... much much better thin ps3 version sells only 300k hehehehehhheeh same flop in markting demos souls and R&C ..u say AAA title ??? My ass
1 million - 0.96 million = 0.04 million A -4% difference is significant to fanboys BTW, 1 million is flop according to you retards, that's what you said when infamous crossed 1 million sales
But who wants GoW in PS3?
plz crapstation fans keep dreaming of gears of war coming too ur suckStation 3
Gears of War.... Hey! Isn't that the game that killed a bunch of 360s back in 2006-2007?!
