Major Nelson: "I have just learned of a decision to postpone our planned Gears of War news from Epic Games for the Spike Video Game Awards this weekend."
that is embarrasing
They have probably seen the Uncharted 3 game play trailer.
@Ghost, 3000 people commit suicide each day, talking about it in funny way ain't cool man
what sort of message does this show to epic? 'we dont want your game to be overshadowed by u3 so we are pulling you from the show' ms really dont no how to treat their developers from ensemble to bungie and now epic....and you wonder why they are pushing kinect so hard?....all about money with giving very little for ms, after gears im not paying for xbl again.the only game worth getting next year for 360 and ms act like scared bitch*s because of sonys line up ,STOP WORRYING ABOUT SONY AND SHOW LOVE TO US 360 OWNERS,i was really pumped to see new gears footage after enduring all this kinect nonsense . next year looks bleak as hell for AAA exclusives and any 360 owner whose not a 10 year old fanboy cannot deny this how did we go from 2007s line up to this?im still getting gears but this has really pissed me off....wonder what epic are feeling right now? epic own the gears IP ms funded the original gears which im sure epic are thankful for but this move will backfire disgruntled and VEX 360 owner not scared to tell it how it is..so fanboys go crazy with the disagree button i care not
Ah good, the entertainment has arrived.
Why dont you just postpone hardcore gaming on the 360, Microsoft? Since that is what you mostly seem to be doing anyway. The only hardcore game I am looking forward to for my 360 and it gets postponed and now info I have been waiting on about it gets postponed too.
Well, come on. Nobody wants to "show-off" their game when graphics is it's major selling point, but have it next to Uncharted 3. I can see it now: Cliffy B - "The best graphics you've ever seen!" Naughty Dog takes the stage right after - "Until now..." *Cliffy B cries in corner*
Lol everything related to M$ embarrasses me
Then PC games that are years old still beat UC3 graphically. Have fun playing UC3 for "graphics", I'll be taking a break from better looking games to play both Gears 3 and UC3 for their gameplay. I'm eagerly awaiting for gameplay and story news on both games, too bad I'll have to wait a little for more on Gears of War 3. Within a week we'll get a Gears 3 announcement too time consuming for the VGAs. Then there will be silence from all the fanboys bashing now.
I actually did LOL on that one. "Until now. . ." Classic!
LOL! Wow TGSI
MS made the call, not Epic. Didn't want to be background noise to other announcements apparently. Really not sure how I lost a bubble...but OK. Someone with ties to the event gives you info and you take a bubble from the. FU N4G
WTF! I was eagerly waiting to see some Gears 3 footage! Or at least some info.....grrrr
wow seriously.. they are just taking the piss.. first you take it from april now this..f*** u. epic...
this is pathetic! thank god i own both consoles, im sick of MS always pulling things at the last moment, just show what you have, its gotta be better then showing nothing. as usual ill rely on seeing what sony has, at least they have real games coming out, i love kinect but im sick of the way MS focuses on it and totaly neglects the core gamers that want real games. at this point sony has already won 2011 just by announcing uncharted 3.
lol no 360 game. Probably they run away because Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3 were to make them look bad
i have to agree sadly :)
huh?if thats true(because of graphic,right?),MS should never announce any game in any time
Or maybe console gaming can just die because of how vastly inferior it will look for the remainder of this gen... I'd actually love that... Gears of War 3 PC ftw!
When it said Gears of War announcement I thought it was a general announcement not a Gear 3 announcement. I was expecting a new book or models of the characters or what I saw on another site a PS3 version of the first two games. Which will never happen. Anyway there is plenty of other announcement to look forward to.
But the game will still be released, so no panic
It's a panic because that was the only ammo MS had for the VGAs. Now Sony is going to clean house at the VGAs. If they just show Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, and one more quality exclusive (prays for Starhawk), then it's a wrap. I see aLOT of people going out and buying a PS3 this holiday and the beginning of next year once word is out on all the exclusives coming for the PS3 next year. I can't wait. Sadly, I won't be able to buy them all.
i dont know what MS will do in VGA but maybe we still get some Codename:Kingdoms info/trailer Maybe,i say again,just maybe
No one said it was gears 3. Trust me, a Gears 3 announcement wasn't delayed.
Well darn....hopefully we still get some BF3 news (assuming the planet teaser is about BF3) as Gears and BF3 were the big ones for me besides the PS3 exclusives we know about. I WANT MY BETA INFO on Gears 3 and BF3 (lots of beta goodness next year)
resistance 3 sly 4 uncharted 3 = another sony show award
I would like Jak 4 more. Sony could get one of its smaller studios to work on it and have Naughty Dog watch over the project. It worked for Castlevania.
I would love another Jak and Daxter game :) One of my favourite series on the PS2!
I wouldn't have even minded if Naughty Dog announced a new Jak game and put Uncharted 3 on hold for yet another year to make it even more epic.
They could at least release some news on the Beta. I mean Gears 3 isn't coming out until the Fall, so they still have like 10 game conventions to include E3 to show off whatever they want. But if all the 360 releases at the VGAs is Kinect games, they better be the hardest of core, or GTFO.
There is something to be said about waiting and releasing more if the other side will flood the show with stuff. It's the same reason IMO why Sony waited a bit to release GT5 after Kinect. It would have been lost in the hype of Kinect. Instead they waited a few weeks so it had at least a bit of it's own window. Let's face it. This show is going to belong to Uncharted 3 and Sony. MS will probably release info when they don't have to compete with the next GotY candidate. :)
wow a logical explanation....I think this makes perfect sense Gears 3 is their big hitter and there's no point going up against UC3 and R3 if you don't have to....hold the news a bit and let it leak a bit later on
can wait to see all those 7/10 games next year except uncharted 3. Sad delay for Gears 3...
I use reviews for toilet paper :)
Oh so you agree that uncharted 3 is awesome. is pleasure to see that hardcore xbox fanboy praising sony exclusive game. by the way, ps3 game have more higher ranked review that xbox. you gotta to admit that epic it self embarrassed to be in same show as uncharted. even xbox exclusive know that ps3 have better exclusive
which ones? alan wake, fable 3? oh ok btw god of war 3 is higher than reach in metacritic, heavy rain is above all 360 exclusives except reach pwnd
Exclusives: KZ3 Resistance2 LBP2 Infamous2 The Last Guardian FFvsXIII Agent D.C.U.Online and of course Uncharted3 Multiplats: Crysis2 Bulletstorm Mass Effect3 L.A. Noir ??????: Starhawk The Agency FFXIV Most of these games look more like 9/10 to me.
Maybe they will show off one of their other great upcoming exclusives instead. Like... uh... that dragon game... or um... uh... Never mind.
lol..... Bubble for u Mrbeatdown
This is called 'the Naughty Dog effect'.
MS: "Gears 3 will steal VGA spike and overshadow the rest including sony exclusives resistance 3" *announcement of uncharted 3 will in VGA* MS: "**** you sony, quickly tell VGA that Gears 3 will not appear in VGA. we don't want it been overshadow by Sony exclusive games"
We won't know the real reason they pulled out (we might when the announcement finally hits) but I would venture to say there's just too much revealing going on and they want to have more undivided attention for a Gears 3 announcement.. Think about it...they would have to compete with the hype of Arkham City, ME3, UC3, R3, BF3 (hopefully), Prototype 2 (just needed a joke one) and a few unknown reveals....it makes sense from a marketing standpoint
twitter.com/GearsViking/status /13664582337822720 hmmm we still get MS announcements,but don't know what now
I was really looking forward for the gears announcement I'm happy as long it's worth the weight
They have to show stuff at gdc too in 2011 feb 28
yeah MS will have to show stuff @ GDC. . SONY will too. . MS better delay showing anything ever again and just stick to TV commercials marketing to the sheep.
i hope they dont postpone codename kingdoms too
bad move, in my opinion. the VGA's have basically became Sony's show and what a show it'll be with Sony unleashing a huge number of high quality exclusives. With exclusive games like LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3, DC Universe Online, Twisted Metal and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, 2011 will be Sony's year. Microsoft needed to plant some seeds tonight and failing to give us something about Gears of War 3 could be a fatal mistake.
Maybe the reason is that we've all seen the game in action. Sony may have a few never before seen trailers for some VERY HEAVY HITTING franchises. Wowing an audience with a game that's been seen before is very tough indeed. Hell, some people have already played Beast Mode. I'm a huge fan of Gears, but interest in the PS3 exclusives seems to be at an all-time high. I'm sure MS has seen the list of reveals, and decided to "live to fight another day".
LMAO! losing GDC,losing E3,losing GAMESCOM,losing TGS,and now losing and getting their @ss whooped on VGA announcements. but hey,at least you got forza,the most definitve racer on metacritic but not to gamers and kinect. i can understand waiting until maybe E3 to go BIG,but as kirk said to scotty at the end of star trek to get away from the time distortion: WHAT ELSE YOU GOT!!! LMAO!...all those billions but no games and no real developers to announce games.pathetic.
wow you must be monetarily invested in Sony.....it's a crappy awards show with some trailers...."winning& quot ; this is about equivalent to beating another car to the drive thru at taco bell...sure it's nice but it saves about 1 minute in the grand scheme of things and that goes for either company
xbox 360 exclusives @ VGA: Wa Wa Waaaaaaaa.....
I think its pretty safe to say Gears 3 will outsell Uncharted anyway, so I doubt that's the reason. Could just be the game is too buggy to show right now.
Sorry what does sales have to do with anything here? Oh it's just another fanboy comment to say 'hahah my X sells more then your Y so it must be better'
i dunno about that mate. The figure of gears of war selling 5 million was included with PC and with the amount of hype of uncharted 3; I mean come on even 360 fanboys are kneeling down to the greatness that is uncharted 3 just look above.
You have gears of war 2 on your PC? for real. Lucky you to have a game that was never made. @verminox. The article is about why did they delay it. You provided a reason and i said no, said why i don't think your reason is correct, then provided a reason of my own. I simply provided the reason that MS will not really be afraid of Uncharted. Good game...but not in gears popularity circle. Therefore, the reason may have been internal such as the a bug that would be embarrassing on the scale of nba elite's 'jesus bug'
lol they probabaly saw uncharted trailer,and they said: ''wow this is... andrew go tell to ppl that we won't show gears of war today'' sleepy3 so what if gears gonna outsell uncharted! first of all gears game is shooter,and shhoter selling ubergood this generation! uncharted is adventure game,same as alan wake exclusive to xbox,and now if we compare same genre,let's see numbers: ALAN WAKE-app 800,000 Uncharted 1 - 3,5 million Uncharted 2 - 4,2 million and now people gonna call me troll because i telling the truth,and that's why i lost all my precious bubles :(
I am going down that path too like i give a shit about my bubbles. All i need is one bubble :)
I will give u a bubble also.......
You will get a bubble from me........don't fret..
LOL Why am I not surprised to hera this one.I love GEARS and all but I only can imagine them going up on stage and trying gears on the worst new gimmick called Kinect.It wont work and will never work.Plus Cliff has a bad track record for stuff going wrong in front of millions.Kinnect=fail which makes gears of war great again.If I had to see him go up there and make an ass of himself again I would just have to boycott MS for good due to the lack of knowledge they have in the gamming world.
Good point.......MS does lack knowledge of the gaming world.....they are getting better... --But Sony...really knows games...and their consumers..."Gamers"
They should just hold all news until a week before release :)
Aww, did you wet your pants in panic when Uncharted 3 was confirmed, I wish it wasn't so Gears of Dis-kinect could have been shown. COME ON we all know that's what'll be.
This is grave news, everyone in forums is hyping the vast PS3 library (even though i dont care much for it) and saying 360 has nothing in 2011 and zero exclusives Also dismissing Kinect and XBLA games Just stating the general climate in forums, which may or may not mean anything much, but gives me a dissapointment every time i visit them I think it is very bad to not have announcements at all, when PS3 has so many exclusives announced and many more planned for VGA I am making a XBLA game myself in XNA, and i really hate to see 360 bashed like that in forums, just takes away much of my exitement making my game and is rather bad phycology Anyway, 360 is my best system by far and i plan to buy far more games in 2011 than any other system, if only it had more news on some exclusives, so morale returns :) Labwarrior is going in the defense:P
