Rein enthusiastically announces in the video, "And don't forget, we're also doing Macintosh. Yes, Gears is coming to the Mac and so is UT". (Gears of War, PC, Unreal Tournament III)

Microsoft gets screwed over again
Seriously, Microsoft should stop giving away money to second and third-party developers.

Instead, Microsoft should put those money into buying/setting up first-party studios and developing first-party IPs, which is a much wiser investment.

...
what is this, every major game for the 360 is going to be on a personal computer, why even buy a 360?

yeah pretty funny, that the best game, the xbox has to offer is a multiplatform game :) and i thought, that the exclusives are the system sellers, i was wrong then...
socomnick  +   2839d ago
Better to have a awesome game thats multiplatform like gears of war than to have the best game on the ps3 be mediocre = resistance.
nextgengaming18  +   2839d ago
Best game on xbox 360 and ps3 is oblivion
Not rfom, or gears of war.
aiphanes  +   2839d ago
Well if Gears of War is comming to the Mac then it might come to the PS3...and Wii
Now we know the wii can not do Gears of War...but i just had to say it.

Mark Rein has already said that is BULLSHIT
Not this BULLSHIT again. Mark Rein PERSONALLY came out and posted in a forum to debunk the persistent rumor that Gears of War would come to PS3:

"This story is complete bull****. I emailed the site and asked them to take it down. We're very happy with our relationship with Microsoft. If it weren't for them Gears wouldn't be the huge hit it has become."

Here, the source, see for yourself:

Here's Epic message to developer.
"Use My Engine, you get XBOX 360, PS3, Mac and PC. One Engine does it all.............f*ck linux......"

Developers would be wise to not draw any attention from the open source terrorists
If Epic puts its game out on Linux, all the open source evangelists will constantly harass Epic to "share" and give away the source code of its 3D engine.

And if Epic refuses to "share", those evangelists will just whine and complain and threaten and even terrorize. I see them in forums of major game developers asking (or more like demanding) companies to publish their source codes from time to time. Those people really think of open source as some sort of religion.

you mean kinda like how i can play ut2004 on linux? stfu before you talk.

Well the PC version of Gears is gonna have all the original content plus 5 new stages and 1 new multiplayer mode, and none of it is gonna be available for 360.... Gorilla turds..
gnothe1  +   2839d ago
its gonna be availble, just not right now!! there trying to give PC users an incentive to buy gears now. I think just about around the time the new gears maps go free in sept, this may become availble!! they dont want to spoil the potential sale of PC buyers!!
Groo  +   2839d ago
I hope you are right man, but by the way they are taking, doesn't sound like its going to happen.

Now then..
if they can get it for ubuntu i'd consider it :P
until then, my mac is for multimedia purposes only.. and picture editing, and audio editing, and video editing, and of course... my sexy mac mightymouse with an 8gb flash drive built in that sends files through it via bluetooth, or usb if i have to ^^

Anyways, bad news for microsoft, great news for apple, great news for sony(gears to ps3 of course) i might get this game for my MacPro though, 20,000 dollar computer at the time but its a mighty fine computer, 16GB RAM, 2 terra hard drive, NVIDIA 8800 graphics card, Intel Xeon Processor Quad-Core.. all of it is water cooled... its so awesome!

I'm slightly confused
Microsoft own the rights to Gears of War along with Epic, right? So, why are Microsoft allowing them to port it to the Mac? And, if they haven't allowed it, how are Epic doing it?
Tsukasah  +   2839d ago
Well..
From what i hear, microsoft only bribed epic, not under a contract or rights ownership, i honestly did think that too, but i guess this disproves of my theory, my guess is the only reason gears is exclusive is because the 360 was the only console out at the time.

If there was a contract, the thing microsoft did to epic, which had something to do with XBL, possibly broke the contract perhaps, hence allowing epic to do what ever they wanted

Geez here I thought it was all cool for this awesome game to be out on more PC's. Seriously guys it's Mac another PC that marketshares mean very little to Microsoft. Just think they let Rare make a DS game... Gears on a Mac doesn't spell doom for Gears on 360 or MS.

How come...
...Epic can port it to Mac, but not to PS3? How does porting it to Mac benefit more than it injuries Microsoft? Doesn't Microsoft prefer people to buy Windows in order to run Gears? It's not the same as the DS games made by Rare, since MSFT has no portables, but MSFT has the most marketshare on PCs (And the most to lose).

i don't think Microsoft and epic are sleeping in the same bed anymore.....epic is really mad and they have started sleeping with the next door neighbors, that Microsoft never liked in the first place....
