Wonder how good or bad this will look to games like Crysis and Hellgate?

Hopefully its still up to par, definately going to be different on PC in a lot of ways I expect.

About time they got it on PC.

what is your system specs?

[edit] I bet you dont have a system that can play this game decently, if so you are just a Sony fanbot(being a fan is different), else enjoy it on your Vista

@DrPirate, are you kidding me? Epic is also one of the best in performance optimization, I was able to play UT2004 on a P4 3GHz, FX5200, [email protected], the day it came out March 2004(where the announcer guy said "Holy Sh!t"). I am sure this will run well if you have a 8800GTX and E6600 upward oced. If you just spent 3000, I hope you got a 8800GTX or HD2900.

One of the advantages of PC version, its going to run silky smooth on a high end system

Hmm, I'll agree with Darthboy on this one.

I'm sure the PC version is the ultimate version of Gears of War however. I just spent 3 grand on a new gaming PC and I still don't think I'd be able to run it on medium settings :\.

Epic's PC games usually carry technology that make it's highest settings unplayable for a couple of quarters until a powerful PC is released that can play it. I could've only ran ULTRA on UT2k4 2 years after that game came out :(

Excellent, my PC was not up to spec for UT2k4, that's the reason. I hoep to enjoy the new content in this game either way.

@Json: Dude, I so would. I had all the parts ready at Unfortunately, I don't possess the technical abilty and knowledge to build my own PC. So I settled for a pre-built voodoo performance PC. Top of the line, I got it in hopes of being able to play Crysis actually :p.

JsonHenry3944d ago (Edited 3944d ago )

I have a PC that should be able to pull it off. AM2 Dual Core, 8800GTS, 2 gigs DDR2 800mhz and a 160gig HDD. But I already played it on the 360, so I won't be buying it for PC. If I had known it would come out for the PC I would have just waited since the games all look/play better on a PC anyway.

Edit- Dude! Build your own PC! I spent 1200.00USD on a gaming rig that would have cost me $4K+ if I bought it from a retailer.

no way people move the mouse exactly side ways...and up and looks fake to me. if i am using a mouse i move it anyway other then just straight up/down/side

@ DR.Pirate its easy...just dont have any electro static electricity and just read the manual alot! its easy. and i noticed u said where do you live? if near toronto might be able to help u out.

Mostly any computer built right these days can run the newer stuff easily. My system specs: 4200+ Dual core AM2 OC'ed to 2.9Ghz, 1Gb of Ram(OC'ed Too),8600GT XXX Edition Clocked to the MAX, 250Gb HDD, Fatal1ty AN9 32X, and all the other crap and everything works around 100+ frames for older games and around 60+ frames for the newer games on MAX settings. It's all air cooled too. Liquid cooling still leaves room for more overclocking.

You know i wouldnt be suprised if the PC version of Gears turns out to be just as good or better then some of the "Top of the line" PC games.

Also, does anyone think that PC users will be able to play cross platform with us Xbox live folk?

That would be pretty sick, Shadowrun is soo fun because of it.

We have my friends on PC and friends on Console playing against each other.

look like leak footage, and was pretty damn cool. That big beresker with missiles (i thought it was for gears of war 2) look like an awesome fight with new cut scences. It look like a episodic content that would be release for the xbox 360. I don't know if that was for the PC though considering they would just port gears of war to the pc instead of make a new version or part of a episodic content.

I could be wrong though because there is a achievement unlock sign on the video which i m unfamiliar with. Does anyone who have shadowrun confirm this?

Rybnik3944d ago

I really hope you are right that it is soon-to-be-announced episodic content. I just realized NOBODY mentioned the possiblity that we would see single-player episodic content b4 Gears 2..This could be a leaked E3 secret..and it would be awesome!!!

ShiftyLookingCow3944d ago (Edited 3944d ago )

the achivement unlocked is from Games for Windows, so it is confirmed PC

[edit] Since Gears is owned by Microsoft, I am sure Microsoft will release any extra content as DLC to be purchased, after all its another oppurtunity to get some money, I hope its reasonably priced and I hope they make PC gamers pay 60 bucks otherwise it would be unfair

Rybnik3944d ago

Ah, I missed that part (too excited by the idea of more Gears content imminent). that means the PC will have extra content the 360 version doesn't have then?? If so that pisses me off a bit.

Cook1eMan3944d ago (Edited 3944d ago )

I play Shadowrun on PC since I sold my 360. The achievements pop-up on top, but I think Halo 2 Vista's Achievements pop up down on the bottom of the screen. To me it looks new and could be 1 of 3 things:

#1:Gears of War PC
#2:New content for Xbox360
#3:Gears of War 2 (Not likely)

Anyway I bet we will out find out Tuesday July 10, 8:30pm (Microsofts Press Conferance) Pacific Standard Time

O_O I don't rememebr any of that! How do we know it's not a sequel?

TheXgamerLive3944d ago (Edited 3944d ago )

I think we'd here something on PC works before a video would submerge.

I'll wait til I hear otherwise, until then this is Xbox 360.

This could be pre footage to be shown at E3 for the 360.

DrPirate3944d ago

Look at the achievement unlock. It's a Games for Windows Live Achievement unlock emblem popup.

ChaosKnight3944d ago

I've heard scribbles bout this from a couple sources... didn't think it was true cuz my source was better known for his work at Sony o-O Anyways, COOL! Think... no Gears 2 announcement but DLC of extending the first game would be awesome... come on, don't leave us 4 million Gears owners hanging XP
