A new video compares two of the biggest games in 2011: Killzone 3 (PS3) and Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360). Which of these two exclusives will win the race?
but both will be fun games period
Kz3 is better, especially graphically but gears will sell more cuz of its fps loving fan base. Simple @below- you're right. My mistake.
Gears is a TPS
Your logic might have made sense, but if only gears was an fps. Gears sells well because a game like that has its main market base in the US. Also the US happens to be where the majority of 360s are sold.
Gears.. the only game i want from 360's library... but getting KZ3 first day!
Guide on how to get your article featured as the hottest story on N4G. 1) Consult Hiphopgamer for title 2) make article talk about "Any PS3 game vs 360 Game" 3) Add a picture with a hot girl = auto 1000degrees :P
I hope GeoW3 is better than GeoW2 and more like GeoW1.
Because we all know that Graphics=How good a games is going to be. There is no way to tell which one is better until you play both. A better question would be which ones are you planning on buying? KILLZONE 3 on day 1!
if it was just about the graphics then GT5 would never have got good reviews.
Odd, considering all the nit picking was about graphical issues. Standard car details and damage. So what your saying is it should have gotten great reviews.
I'm not at all impressed with KZ's engine and don't really know what the fuss is about. To me its all hype, but that could go for anything.
I much prefer Gears' gameplay over KZ. The single player cover system on KZ fucked me off most... but character design and boss fights were also a hell of a lot better on Gears (not to mention they know how to make a decent looking flame thrower). If gears has improved the multiplayer experience (lag etc) then the third iteration will be immense!
I plan to get both but there is no touching KZ3's graphics. Unreal engine just won't compare.
What a fail troll.
^^^ Really? I think Gears 3 looks better than KZ3. But to each its own I guess...
The anti-PS3 german site full of nonsensical ads. -End of Line
with the tron references oh... and I'm looking forward to both. My gaming community consists of more gears players to KZ3 players. I found it a lot easier to build a community of strangers on the 360 than on the PS3, i was hoping my time inKZ2, MAG or Uncharted 2 would have changed that but alas it did not happen. so I'm putting out a friendly request. my psn id is Rowsdower1979 if you play any of the above ps3 games and plan on getting KZ3 send me a friend request, I'm looking for folks who play on line and like teamwork, so mics are a must. Thanks. if any of you play MAG, KZ2,
deja vu all over http://img177.imageshack.us...

what a stupid comparison -________-
lol i know considering both games are BETAs
I hope i don't come off as a fanboy but i probably will. I love gears of War and I'm getting Gears3 but How many players can you have in a game match online? It's like only 8, or 10. Killzone3 is suppose to have the 32 players for the really large maps.
Hmmmm... one looks like a Team Fortress 2 ripoff, but with awesome graphics.
"Impressive Video Comparison Emerged" theres nothing impressive about this video and adding the word "emerged" is clearly trying to convice us that the footage is brand new or something.
No fanboy-ism... both look loads of fun.
It provides no technical commentary and no proper side-by-side comparisons. This video comparing the Killzone and Gears engines is much better: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
To be fair, that guy seems to not have played gears too much. It's a dead give away when he compares the pistols. He compares a strong magnum from killzone to gears weakest no-recoil pistol. He should have just compared both magnums from the games. There other things that hint at him not knowing much on gears throughout that video.
killzone francise compared to Gears of war? lol killzone not even same league of Gears Of War francise. Just got better graphics.. Killzone 3 has to do somthing amazing to be compared to the big boys as Gears Of War. Gears Of War most critically acclaimed and more famous and hugely better game then Killzone in all angles. Killzone? ermm i cant say that is even known to anyone lol apart from die hard fans...I mentioned you play killzone 2 to a fan of PS3 he said " whats killzone? I play call of duty. " its really sad killzone 2 multiplayer is really fun with classes. BUT sony fanboys can speak all they want THEY DON'T EVEN PLAY IT THERESELFS. Yesterday i was checking online in the world there are probably 20 lobbies open. No one plays this game.
one thing i dont know why killzone 2 is even 18. Killzone 3 yes will have finally some brutality, But Gears Of War violence makes Killzone look like a kids game. perhaps because of ricos f bomb every single sentence.
Lol Gears is for kiddies. Dumb Protoganists who have taken an overdose of steroids. The Helghast make those morons look like pussies that they are. Gears looks so last gen compared to KZ.
Riping Helios head off with your bear hands makes Gears look like a Kiddy Game. Or grabing a poor centaur and ripping out his intestines. I find God of War 3 to be more brutal than both Gears 3 and Killzone 3.
Woah! What's with all the blind killzone love!!? Did we watch the same video!? Gears looks awesome! I wonder how many people watched the video!
UE3 is a toy compared to KZ3's graphics, "PS3" it only does awesome exclusives.
you got to be kidding me? Killzone 2 what some gray ass graphics. so generic and bland. Yes awesome gun detail and this will continue to Killzone 3. But in terms of technologicalview. UNCHARTED OWNS KILLZONE 2. The graphics in Uncharted 2 is so colourful and vibrant with awesome effects as water snow and more. The way Uncharted 3 sand and fire and water are described. Uncharted 2 was best looking game i played this freaken gen. Uncharted 3 WILL BE FREAKEN AMAZING. nah Killzone 3 grey graphics don't impress me even Gears Of War graphics is better and more colourful.
Moron is using another ps3 exclusive to downplay a ps3 exclusive and then concludes gears is better. Jesus no wonder a lot of immature kids play gears. Seem to def lack brains
Your comment is so critically misinformed that it's almost laughable, I'm afraid that my laugh failed to prevail over my cringe though. Killzone is technically more impressive in terms of many aspects than either of the games mentioned. The ability to render some of the volumetric (3-dimensional) smoke effects along with it's real time dynamic lighting is really quite breath taking at times. chapter 3 whilst with Rico and Natko waiting for Garrza you see a Helghast run through the smoke which dynamically reacts to the lighting in the environment and your gun fire. It's just so astounding that you cannot say anything negative about it. Also you have to consider that KZ is a FIRST PERSON GAME. if i was to stand next to a wall I'd be looking at the wall from a foot away, if it was from a camera behind it would be 2-3 foot away, hence it's easier for a TPS to look sharper. Also Art direction does not equate to graphical capablities. If I turn on the black and white filter in Uncharted does it make it bad graphically ????????
duh, unreal engine sucks.. no contest here killzone won in all categories.
Except gameplay. and Badassedness! Edit: "Gouging eyes isn't badass." Not as Badass as ripping peoples arms of or cutting them in half with a chainsaw. In fact, gouging eyes is a bit girly. Will KZ4 feature Chinese burns or nipping?
Gouging eyes isn't badass. ok.....
@The Meerkat You know since you have already played gears 3 right?
lol @ "badass" competition... pathetic BOTH ARE BAD ASS. and neither compare to the most bad ass game ever...i don't even need to mention the name. one is more "realistic" the other is more "ludic", but both are damn bad ass just stfu already both of you geez, you all fall for the same trap all the time...
I know right Visual, nothing compares to Sackboy in badassness (just look at my DP) EDIT: Or maybe Sankemustdie (poster a few main comments below) captures two badass characters joined together, probably what you were talking about ;)
you have problems dude...
meerkat - a knife to the eye is definitely badass. (and i can't EVER recall a newsstory of a girl jamming a knife into someones eye. - so, you're "girly" comment is a MAJOR fail)
This generations "with attitude".
Unreal engine doesn't suck.. it producing shit loads of great titles all the time. Fuck it.. why bother, you're called hellghan666 - nothing smacks of fanboy dumbfuck prick more than that, sorry to waste all your sony feltching time.
Can't bother with half of the fanboys on this site. Which is why I try to stay clear of the comment section.
Getting both so I guess it really doesn't matter.
If Uncharted 3 came out it would have been a better comparison seeing as they are both 3rd person shooters. KZ3 is an FPS, different type of game.
It bit unfair when you compare TPS with FPS. it easy to understand that they comparing the ENVIRONMENT. Both of them very gritty and use "real is brown" color technique. but sorry xbox Fanboy, there is no competition here. obviously Killzone Graphic is in different level compare to UE3. it simply a fact that wroth nothing to argue
I thought Gears 3 was very impressive graphically, but of course PS3 fans adopt this ALL PS3 exclusives are gods and cannot be even remotely touched by a 360 game... I see gears 3 is just as impressive graphics wise. KZ3 does have amazing environmental effects i will give it that!
like its already been said the unreal engine cant compete visualy with KZ3 tbh, but i must say it does look good and fun as hell :) i'll be getting Killzone3 day 1, and i'll enjoy gears 3 when thats released also
I don'' known why you get the disagree, but you made a good point.
@units opinionated or factually speaking?.. :)
Its too early to compare both games. The beta of kz3 is not the representation of the graphics of the final build. The graphics might improve if kz2 is any indication. Furthermore, we have yet to have a Geow3 footage other than the ones shown at E3 so its kind of hard to compare the graphics until we have both the final build of both games.
killzone 3 looks and plays better Gears of war always looks the same still good tho If uncharted 3 is shown this weekend i feel ND will raise the bar and kill both games in looks and maybe gameplay
gears is waaaaaaaay bettter!!!!
We are comparing trailers and gameplay videos now.kz3 is beta and gears 3 isn't out yet.
too early to compare both games
to ask which game will be better is subjective but which game will be better on a technological level is killzone 3 in every way. i'm in the killzone 3 beta at the moment and i can say that the game is above and beyond any shooter available at the moment and its all done on a high quality level to which it seems like the game is rivaling crysis on high settings.from the sounds, the animations, the physics and the graphics, killzone 3 is in a league of its own because its all done of very high quality. no offense to gears of war but it seems like the gameplay and quality are all flawed in a number of ways. the first game was good but we all know it had a lot of glitches and problems but people overlooked them because it was the best shooter on the xbox 360 at the time. a lot of fans couldnt wait for gears of war 2 but it had worse problems than gears of war 1 which is puzzling for the sequel to be worse than the first game. my point is that with two very flawed game, i dont think its even logical to compare gears 3 and killzone 3 alongside the fact that they are both different games with the only similarity being that they are both shooters. listen, i know some people are partisan because of these plastic boxes but it seems as though people will live in the big river in Africa rather than saying the truth because it seems as though they are going against the console they prefer. i'm a big gears of war player which anyone can check at anytime, but the game suffers a lot from glitches , lag and slow downs. a lot of times you try to talk to other fans of the series about the problems which mars the gamplay but they completely deny the problems which is insanity. my belief is that the reason why gears of war 2 was such rubbish is because of the ignorant fans that said the first gears was flawless which wouldnt make the developers update the game engine of the sequel. gears is a good series but its illogical to compare these games on quality when we all know killzone 2 and 3 are often times lokk at for being games for the next gen or that killzone 2 being an old game hasnt been matched in anyway on any other console to date.
Your argument should be applied directly to the Killzone ip. I love and play both. I feel the same way you do, but about Killzone. Nothing pisses you off more than your character feeling like it has a broken leg or is walking though syrup. Both games, fanboys, and development teams are guilty of exactly what you said.
THANK YOUUUUU!!!! I am in the Killzone beta also and I was SHOCKED at how just three maps in a Beta could be more fun than ANY FPS I have ever played... This is just my opinion but the Jet packs and exo skeletons are the funnest thing in any fps.... I would compare this game more to Battlefield than Gears because the quality of machines guns and objective is that fun and intense... While Gears is more of a casual unrealistic shooter thats fun... The team options are second to none in kz3... Basically your team has 15 players and you can creat a team of 4 within that team where you can see where your teammates are in the map! All problems with Killzone 2 controls have been fixed completly... except ADS (needs work) But this is a NO CONTEST! yOU WILL BE hUMBLED WHEN YOU SEE THE REVIEWS!
is far from impressive.
Gears has better textures. Killzones textures was pretty bad. Gears will have the better gameplay with more intensity and fun. Killzone looks to be stealing a lot from other games like team fortress. Gears brings new ideas and originality. The killzone franchise is small fries compared to the giant gears franchise.
A very nice unbiased comment there Skadoosh /s
I dont think that many people play gears anymore specially when you got call of duty every year. Gears will not be as big like it used to be.
I agree with Skadoosh. The biggest innovation that i enjoy from the Gears franchise is its refreshing take on the lead characters and how they embrace their brazen homosexuality. Marcus in particular with his camp trimmed goatee and his rippling torso, the man is an icon to the gay community. Dom too. Its obvious how special the relationship is between him and Marcus and you can see the relief in his face when he kills off his wife thus unburdening him from living the lie of heterosexuality and opening the door for him and Marcus to be together as big strapping bummers. Innovating stuff indeed.
I know it's painful to see Gears of War blow away Killzone in every way possible...the pain must be tremendous for you. I like how Guerrilla continues to rip off Gears...Rico now looks like dom...lol...Killzone melee looks like child's play compared to Gears. It's not Guerrillas vault...blame the garbage supercomputer. As for all the gay projecting your doing, maybe you could write Cliffy B a letter asking for a gay character to make yourself feel better about yourself??? They can even call him Nicarag-in-the-A$$.
