And what do the PS3 gamers who buy Bulletstorm get? Epic...you better give us something! @CandyCaptain- lol..so mean
You will get beta access too. Only to dangle it in front of ya, teasing ya,....taunting ya! Zehahahahaha!!!
like how crackdown 1 was fun yet included halo 3 beta
There NOTHIN teasin about a Gear 3 beta imo, if it was a Hitman V beta instead (4 example) id hav a heart attack and buy a 360 in a heart beat
Your opinion plus your 1 bubble = EPIC WIN!!!.................../s
I don't see why they would need to I mean gears is exclusive to 360 so whats the point? Plus it does make sense anyway Epic? Gears????
I agree, i hate it when developers do that..well, they favor xbox because they feel sorry for them because Gears3 is the last good exclusive coming to xbox and ps3 has countless coming so microsoft is shitting there pants...whats gonna be there savior?? Kinect? hahaha what a joke
I'm sure Sony will come up with something. Maybe free DLC? Tough to say though.
Well done Microsoft & Epic Games. A perfect way to go about bringing the sales in for Bulletstorm. I mean, It worked for Crackdown with the Halo 3 Beta..
so you think its great job on MS part to help EA make more money? lol think before you speak, in this case write
Yep, MS really have little to gain from this. They'd be using their second biggest franchise, to promoted the one belonging to Epic and EA.
...Agree...I love Gears and think Bulletstorm will be a breakout hit BUT I hate the idea of Bulletstorm making money for a parasite like EA and Peter Moore. It could of been a big hit for MGS if M$ published the game but I guess Epic wanted to take it multi-platform...too bad. They should include it in Forza or any game that is exclusive to xbox and 360. As much as I want People can fly to get some easy sales and Bulletstorm to do well...I want nothing but poor sales for EA and there greedy " pay for demo's and used games fee's " mantra.
Ok, Well done to EA aswell then. :)
Im over the Gears series. I tried to like it, even bought it for my brother for christmas to play with me, he never got past the first level of it cause it was boring. I ended up beating the game several glitches later, tried to really get into the online, really I did. But after playing Uncharted 2 online, I really cant go back to this slug called Gears of War.
I played Gears 2 but never the first. I found it to be ok/average but nothing special IMO especially when compared to UC2. Again, not saying Gears is bad but UC2 is a masterpiece and every other TPS kind of pales in comparison. Also, Gears 2 online was more or less unplayable though when I tried it. I just sat waiting for a match for about 5 minutes before getting in one. I'll sit and wait for my disagrees now.
I personally prefer Gears to uncharted. Although Uncharted 2 is by far the pretty one of the two, I am a huge fan of the comic book violence of Gears 2. However it was only so long i could put up with shitty connections and lag out games before i stopped playing. Gears 3 and its dedicated servers could well win me back to the franchise.
Not sure what you thought would come of this post, maybe change someones mind? Convince us that UC2 is better and to switch?
The term, foolhardy, comes to mind =)
I was planning to get BulletStorm on the PC. It should look amazing. But if this is confirmed I might just be tempted.
Yeah, good news for 360 owners but what about PS3/PC guys? @too pawned - Yeah I know but what do we get? @visualb - no, it would take some incentive for me to buy this rubbish looking game.
i doubt they care about gears
you are talking about BUYING A GAME, and you are asking "what do we get" as if you deserve anything YOU GET THE BLOODY GAME YOU PAY FOR. isn't that enough?
Why should you get anything? Gears isn't being released on the other 2 platforms as of yet... So there is no sense in a Gears beta test is there?
They really don't need to entice me any more then they already have, Bulletstorm looks phenomenal and if it does come with Gears 3 beta then it will be a brilliant purchase.
Completely agree. The beta would just be a nice added bonus to what already looks great.
I don't see how this would make any sense. Microsoft would be making EA a lot of money by doing this. Unless they create some sort of partnership, I guess it would increase their relationship with Epic. I guess if it is included in Bulletstorm I might pick it up, it does look pretty fun.
Double win. Keen for Bulletstorm
Forget the beta just bring out the game looking forward to both Gears 3 and Bulletstorm.
And it's great news, because I was going to purchase Bulletstorm in the first place and I also get access to re Beta for what is set to be my next favourite game (taking over from Gears 1 & 2). I thought it would happen because Epic stated they wished for Bulletstorm to sell a's much a's Gears of War would, and, with them being the parent company of People can fly, they want the best for them...
they can't include it with bulletstorm because bulletstorm is published by EA and Gears is published by Ms. I don not think microsoft is going to let EA make profit off of them
