Gears of War 3 vs Killzone 3 - comparison of the system sellers

Cynamite compares the two coming system sellers Gears of War 3 and Killzone 3: graphics, gameplay, story and more.

The story is too old to be commented.

to be honest this comparison took longer than i expected.

Jamie Foxx3032d ago

they are both still a year away in development, seriously....

Independent_Charles3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

exactly my point no one evan knows the story properly on both games.


BeaArthur3032d ago

Fanboys and idiots approve these articles. Just another example of why this site is laughable.

Dance3032d ago

this is stupid should wait till at least month b4 release date... since they come out the same time basically... at least wait for the e3 trailers

WhittO3031d ago

I think we should be comparing Gears 3 to Killzone 2 TBH lol.

mad-dog3031d ago

indeed. some of those sites....

can't wait for both. Personally i love the atmosphere a bit more in Killzone (lighting of the Dutch masters). But both games are great.

Useless article

Both looking to be beast games

"There can be only one!" )))

Don't really care, I'm getting both =D

The title is a fail as soon as i read it. How can a third Gears game and a second killzone on this generation sell significant amounts of machines, to new buyers? Not likely....

Maybe if Killzone 3 incorporates move controls, but a third gears wont sell machines

basicsameh5143032d ago

we all know gears 3 will outsell killzone 3.. but killzone will be slightly better

lociefer3032d ago

how about if u like fps get kz2 and if u like 3rd person get geow ?

Ult iMate3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

oh crap!
You've ruined it all!
Here's your bubble, wise guy.

BannedForNineYears3031d ago

Or how about if you have a 360 get GOW and if you have a PS3 get Killzone 2. And if you have both, get both!

ShinMaster3031d ago

If you have a PS3 you'll get KZ3 or maybe even R3 if announced soon. And if you have a 360 you'll get that Halo game.
That is if we're talking FPSs only.

karl3031d ago

what u guys dont understand is that fighting over which one is better is even more fun than playing the games!...

vhero3032d ago

*yawn* The pictures they using for gears aren't even in game... Why do sites have to resort to tactics like that?? Are 360 semi-exclusives that bad now compared to ps3 exclusives graphics wise? I don't think so.. I mean sure we all know KZ3 will look better than gears 3 but tactics like this to make them look comparable make it look like there's something wrong with the 360 game when there's not it will still look good.

Volomon3031d ago

Ya I noticed that too, only a hand full of them are in game, and in those screenshots you can tell because the background looks like crap. The DOD is huge in Gears of War 3 apparently but I always thought it was that way for any Xbox360 game. Killzone 3 you can see the background as clearly as the foreground, because the PS3 can render both at the same time in as crisp a detail, Xbox360 not at all.

corneliuscrust3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

By DOD you mean DOF? Depth of Field?

And in gears you can see the background CLEARLY. IF you focus the reticle on it! The DEPTH OF FIELD changes depending on what you focus on...sort of like.. a camera! If you played Gears2 you'd know this.

Is the point that because screens were released for KZ3, there HAVE to be in game screens of gears3?

These pissing contests are getting old. Expecially here at n4ps3.

If you like the game, awesome, if you don't, awesome.

The sad part is that you got agrees. You're right, the 360 can't render crisp backgrounds at all, not in any game ever. This site is full of champions.

Both games are looking great. Im not talking about eye candy I'm talking about added features and game mechanics. The point of a sequel is to outdo your last installment, not just look around at what everyone else is doing and making sure your dick is bigger.

raztad3031d ago

WTF is this article? come on, cynamite is pretty desperate for hits.

8thnightvolley3031d ago

stupid stupid article... both are ages away and both are incredible ips.. so this flamebait is just stupid.. seriously.

SuperStrokey11233031d ago

I forgot how impressive KZ2 really was until i watched that again. Might have to give it another go after seeing the release date for KZ3 to get brushed back up on it.

Immortal3213031d ago

.... bummer!

I didnt like kz2 demo(mainly the control), so idk about kz3.

I didn't play gears2, but I heard the campaign is hella short.

Immortal3213031d ago

but I doubt gears3 images are ingame shots.

gtamike3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

killzone 3 the winner, hell the other consoles can't top killzone 2 graphics :)

Heisenberg3031d ago

till it's actually possible to compare the two.

NYPunk883031d ago

misleading bullshit... whoring for page hits I see.

BkaY3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

i am still getting both.. so keep the hate and comparison coming,

@above somewhere .... where user added the screenshot for KZ2 and GeoW1 or 2

honestly... i have no idea how do you get this screen shot of cole.. coz when i was playing it was way way better than that...


SaberEdge3031d ago

They both look damn good. That is all.

TROLL EATER3031d ago

system sellers?? both good games but only gears 2 sold like 2 mill in one day expect gears 3 to do more of da same . killzone 2 didnt really shift ps3's??

Double Toasted3031d ago

Gears 3 wont have any competition! It exceeds all levels!

fuckitimout3031d ago

killzone is not 'system seller'

XactGamer3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

Both look a little outdated to me "at this point" but they still look fun as hell.

Independent_Charles3032d ago

but in all seriousness, just enjoy the damn games once in awhile instead of nitpicking bad textures and jaggies. i have no doubt in my mind both games are system sellers and will be really worth the purchase.

jesuisankit3032d ago

Bubbles for you man.. very well said. The graphic war is really going nowhere and there is nothing fruitful out of it.

Interesting ... KZ3 seems to be leading graphic-wise

D4RkNIKON3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

Was there ever any doubt about KZ in the graphics department? The game screams holy ****

Dance3032d ago

major facepalm for you fella

Giriath3032d ago

Those GoW 3 pictures aren't even really screens. I very much doubt they've paused the game and moved the camera around. First of all they've placed the characters in animations that don't exist in the game, so it's not a stretch of the imagination that they've edited the graphics a bit too.

The Killzone 3 screens are straight of out gameplay, with a detached camera.

lowcarb3031d ago

The gears3 pics look much better but it could be because KZ3's beauty can only be realized in 3d. Both game look great but claiming KZ3 looks better is far fetched.

Ju3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

Sure the GeOW3 pics look better, because they are bullshots. Are you kidding me ? Same story over and over again. But some are seriously arguing this here.

Gears 3 isn't even gonna be as good as KZ2 let alone 3. BTW, the only reason why the Gears franchise got big was because there was really nothing out when part 1 came. Everyone was like,, ahhh teh gore, ahhh teh graphics. Ive yet to see anything using the Unreal Engine that looks better than Uncharted 1. BTW, I thought KZ2 controls and movement was utter shit, well I thought that Gears was even worse than that. I really dont know what you guys see in this series?

BeaArthur3032d ago

I'm sure some people feel the same way about games you like. It's a matter of preference.

BabyTownFrolics3032d ago (Edited 3032d ago )

and someone could make the same complaints about KZ2, but like you they would be wrong.

I wont try to explain why myself and so many others enjoy gears, it really does not matter why. I also would not demand that anyone justify their gaming choices to me. That sort of thing is pointless, "Explain to me why you like something I dont."

I spent countless hours and made a ton friends on xbla playing execution.

I miss those days, the old simple multiplayer interface was awesome, all it needed was party support.

I'm looking forward to both games, lets try leaving the fanboy shit at the door. If your not interested in one of the two games thats fine, but dont be so self centered that you come to the conclusion that that game must now suck because you dont like it.

thief3032d ago

I personally found Splinter Cell (despite its lower resolution) and Batman: Arkham (played on PS3, I would assume 360 is comparable) to be better looking games than Gears 2.

N4PS3Fanboys3032d ago

Both Gears 1 and 2 are higher rated and better selling than Killzone 2.

Ju3031d ago (Edited 3031d ago )

I have to admit, never played Gears 2 and never will. I like how you guys hype that game. Gears 1 was one of the most boring games I played. I don't like the characters, I don't like the dialog (what dialog ? Stereotypical short phrases or what's that?), dump story (at least as dump as most other shooters which get marked down for story) and, wtf, what happened to the color ? I took screen shots, and I could swear I can convert them to 8bit grey scale and they would still look the same. But, it's OK to troll other games for being "grey", I know. So, no way Gears will beat KZ, let alone KZ3.

nycredude3031d ago

I have to agree I just don't see what the fuss with the Gears franchise is. had both and sold both back to Gamestop. Very boring and clunky as hell controls, bad story, and the graphics are overhyped. RE5 was better looking!

DA_SHREDDER3031d ago

Okay let me rephrase myself cause I dont wanna be considered a fanboy. lol. The Gears and Killzone series both need revamps to their controls and totally redo their thoughts for their online. Both games can be stellar titles, but you guys over hype these games, that dont even play good. I consider both titles undeserving of your money. Im not against you guys, I just dont approve anything that can be done better.
