Epic has revealed that Gears Of War 3 will not have a theater (theatre) mode - and you won't be able to take and share in-game photos.
Why would they remove such an awesome feature , so much potential greatness from the community now eliminated
But the photo mode is a loss, sad about that. Won't pretend I never use it, I use it daily. Then again I'm on a fanboy of the other console so I wont claim I never used a feature just cos it was removed
@sejiour yes no one did,..because linux and flash don't go hand in hand,.. I tried to mess with gnash,.. but I couldn't make it to work so no youtube,.. so it was useless,.. even ps3 browser is way better in that sense,.. but if you really could not find a pc ,.. and needed something to write for collage ,.. maybe it might be useful,.. I used it 3 times,.. than was pissed because it took space and had to format,..
If you could play PC games (in a playable framerate) through PS3 linux, I would give a crap. But since 90% of the PS3 was locked off in other OS mode, I really couldn't give the slightest bit of a crap. http://www.youtube.com/watc... (Skip to last 10 seconds - unplayable)
No any other reasons.
It has nothing to do with space. Care to tell me how Bungie fitted all those features including theater and picture taking on one disc?
Release it for PC and I'll use FRAPS. :D
I used yellow dog linux on the PS3 when I could use it.
Agreed. I have some Epic vids and pics from Uncharted 2 that I shared with my friends, pretty cool feature.
they seem to be cramming more new stuff in so this feature was probably the least used out of the ones they could of canned. Im sure they wouldnt of wanted it to ship it on 2 disks. Im sure the elements that replace this will improve the total package
space issues ehhh blu ray is not need huh i joke i joke i kid kid if I offend Im sorry please please forgive
It just code i would guys it doesn't take more then 10mb to program something like a picture mode or videomode.
It's not a space issues. It's the only a small percentage of people used it. Near six million copies of the game sold but only 2 percent of gamers used the photo feature. Many times I used it, it was totally be accident after I had died and waiting for the next round, I click B accidentally while cycling through the cameras. It's a novelty. And the title of this article is misleading. A game can't lose something it never had.
My ass couldn't care less about that feature. Just give us a working online mode ffs and we will be happy.
Perhaps they needed more space,.. though I don't see that a reasonable answer,.. It is just a code,.. but it is quite possible,.. because they pay royalties on every dvd,.. and ms takes of atleast 3 gigs for protection,.. I hope in the end, it will be in the game,.. they have enough time,.. hope online works properly this time,..
No one used the picture taking mode because it was garbage. If the mode can't be on par with Halo 3, Halo: Reach or Uncharted 2, then it shouldn't be in the game.
dat sux for you guys
geez, first MS delays it 5 months, now they are removing features. i hope this trend doesn't continue, i am really looking forward to this game.
Do you even what your talking about that mode in Gears 2 sucked so much monkey balls. Wasn't even fun at all. How do you take pictures in gears 3 when death match is now life based like every team has 30 lifes instead of one life you die wait till round is over in gears 2 the time you waited in gears 2 for the round to start again was the only moment i knew you could control the camera and move around to take pictures.
Removed? People were asking for theater and Epic said no. It was never confirmed to be part of the game. Just wishful thinking. Epic did say there would be no dedicated servers and look what the game has now. They are saying no to make people forget about it, but I'm sure they will put it in if they have adequate time for it.
never took pictures in gears 2 to begin with.. it was a pointless feature
so was that the "silver linning" for the delay?
Beta and dedicated servers. The other info was nice too.
i was just trying to be funny, it didnt work. lol.. i heard they was doing dedicated servers, didnt think that was true though. i really dont under stand why all high profile games like this and halo etc. never had dedicated servers on a service that we pay for (live). just boggles the mind.. im very much looking forward to gears3 .dedicated servers is more of a platinum linning to me, about time epic!
It never had it in the first place. And if you're talking about the picture mode in Gears 2... no one really used that.
lol at people saying theyve 'lost' something, despite the fact that Gears never had it in the first place. and let me tell you something - they didnt remove the screenshot feature because they ran out of space lol. a screenshot feature would be a hundred lines of code at the very very very very very most. itd be <2kb of space on the disc. they took it out because noone used it. i love gears, but even i barely used it.
