Id rather PC. Just imagine, the true HD with DX11 + SM 5.0 @ 1920x1080, hot damn, now that would be awesome.

geth1gh2661d ago

or just imagine it being developed and running on that cell processor in the ps3 :)

if they took the uncharted 2 engine to make a gears, jesus....

You a silly mofo! Btw, kick the habit man, kick the habit. I would rather someone, who doesn't create such a dumb comment, promote getting high.

What were the terms for the Gears franchise? I thought only 1 and 2 were exclusive to MS?

Imagine the butthurt if at E3 Gears 3 comes to PS3. Final Fantasy 13 all over again.

Anyways, dynamic levels and destructibility sounds absolutely amazing and is the right update for a sequel. Red Faction did it great and this would be amazing to see. Digging holes to hide in, maybe even go Uncharted 2 and add the ability to pull people under and chainsaw their face off!

If Gears 1 and 2 are still exclusive to MS I don't think Epic would want to bring Gears 3 to the PS3 without them.

JoelR2661d ago

fairly certain from my perspective that Gears is partially Microsoft funded and thus won't be coming to the PS3.

No more dexter avatar alpha? =( thats sad, i hardly recognise you lol, I loved the dexter series but breaking bad is pretty good too although ive only see the first season.

On topic gears is sounding pretty cool. Hope they really push it with the features.

Well...that sounds boring...new enemies...new weapons...real time level destruction and transformation ( think fracture only better )...all with the best graphics/physics this gen...lol...

This game could very well end up on the PS3...why not...Personally, the control scheme would give the PS3 crowd arthritis...you NEED a 360 controller for this masterpiece...Gears 2 sold 6 million on 360 alone...imagine an ALL consoles including PC...Hmmm...they did announce it on Jimmy Fallon instead of M$ E3...they would shake the walls at E3 if it happen.....

Gears is the Graphics champ...all games try to mimic its greatness...KZ2 and UC2 tried with there train, factory..etc...and failed miserably....No game on any system has the rubbery, life like graphics/physics like Gears, all in game with the best cover system out there...( Brinks FPS cover system could change that...that looks incredible as well )...I suspect they will show more variety in the environments and different lighting and shadows....Hope some game play is shown at E3...The screens of the new enemies look INSANE...

In related news...can't wait to see what KZ 3 looks like...I hope it comes out in the fall...E3 is crazy this yr...

For those who never played it, it's something that would be a pleasant surprise. This series is definitely a gem in the 360's treasure chest.

Off topic, I told insomniac in a thread that they should do the chimeran spike grenades like that using the auger; and not just in the ground, but they could be embedded in the walls or through vehicles as well.

boysenberry2661d ago

I agree, Gears Of War 3 on PS3 NOW!!

seinfan2661d ago

Yeah, sounds like you'll be able to burn someone with the flame thrower by sticking it up their ass. lol

FACTUAL evidence2661d ago

This is just ask exciting as meatsheilds! That wasn't exciting at all.....

Double Toasted2660d ago (Edited 2660d ago )

Theonetheonly2661d ago

Everyone gets all "Ima Professional Journalist now that im a contributor" and flagged the hell outta this cause i checked a few extra channels when i uploaded this a few days ago. sorry for the lateness.

8thnightvolley2661d ago

i would so play the hell out of this .. when it comes out i aint gonna lie.. i am looking forward to gears 3.. its just different from many games. once the online weapon balancing is sorted and the lag done .. i will glue it to my tray well and unglue it when i need some reach. lol

aviator1892661d ago

They've been like that since the first Gears. And it's a game. I wouldn't want some skinny looking dudes pummeling their way through locust hordes and huge monsters.

pixelsword2661d ago (Edited 2661d ago )

Marcus was in Jail, plus he was an ex-soldier.
Cole is an ex-thrashball player,
Dom and Baird are both career soldiers.

Fishy Fingers2661d ago

It's Epics design of choice, they've always been like this, from way back to the first Unreal Tournaments.

Simply put, it looks cool, they're not going after realism.

Raf1k12661d ago

Yep, it's distictly an Epic game. It's one that doesn't try to be too real and it works for the setting and style of the game.

Well if your carrying a car of armour you would probably have to be pretty large.

"While it was possible to grab somebody as a "meat shield" in Gears of War 2, the third game will also allow you to strap a grenade to a meat shield and then kick him towards his friends."

That sounds awesome.

The new weapons and executions sound pretty bad ass too.
