XMNR: When Epic Games announced that the Gears of War 3 beta would be included with the purchase of Bulletstorm for the Xbox 360, they forgot to mention when the beta might occur. Now we have the timetable narrowed down to the month of April.
Gears 3 beta "around" April Gears 3 release "around" 2011 Why so secretive about the beta and game release?
Actually the release of the game is in Q4 of 2011. As for the beta, I'm guessing they don't have an exact date nailed down yet.
I want an exact date.... Uncharted 3 11/1/11 Killzone 3 2/22/11 I have a feeling the next CoD will have a release date before Gears 3... Its BS man!
There's a number of PS3 games that don't have an exact release date. Not that big of a deal.
@Serjikal_Strike Your "exact" release dates are always getting pushed around, GT5 had about 3 different "exact" release dates and LBP2, has a tight approximate date and also got pushed back. I'd rather developers give no date then get my hopes up with a fake one.
Wasn't that when the game was supposed to be released? lolololololol
Why the hell does it matter to you? Does The Last Guardian have a release date? You don't even have a 360, so what would it matter to you? You're trolling (As usual) something that is completely normal in this industry. If a release date hasn't been given, it simply means, they aren't ready to give one.
How the phuck would you know if I dont have a 360? So I guess I have the first 2 Gears , L4D and Alan Wake but no 360? Just cuz Im not paying for XBL doesnt mean I dont own a 360
Huh. Strange. Be a man then, gird your loins, and put up your XBL Gamertag. Why have both consoles, only to post just your PSN ID? At least, if you post your GT, we'll know you are who you say you are ... Because we can actually look you up on Xbox.com.
wow..now you're starting to feel like a stalker...lol I dont have to prove shit to you bud!
Aha. Then you are without a doubt lying.
talk about getting defensive
do you know how huge a public beta is yet alone a public beta for an IP like Gears of War in the Xbox LIVE community? They do not give definitive dates unless they are certain the servers and every other technical aspect are good to go because when you delay something, fans get pissed and that's the last thing developers/publishers want. That's why Microsoft didn't announce when the new dashboard was coming this year until literally the week of.
So is this game going to be multiplat? I heard rumors that it is, the reason why it wasn't announced during VGA.
if it is it won't be at launch. maybe down the line in 2012 or something.
April? They must be a fool. I'll be too busy playing the new Mortal Kombat.
they pushed it back because they didn't expect anything good to come out.....and now EVERYTHING AMAZING is coming out around that time gears and COD don't stand a chance to Uncharted, Last Guardian, Elder scrolls, and Mass Effect 3......did i forget anything?
??... You do know you're talking about Gears and COD... Right...?
yupp gears is brown and broken....COD is terrorism and broken both stupid and broken @Arup02 how is facts trolling? the 4 games i listed are more widely popular and much more fun and interactive, they give you more hours of game play the gears and Cod any day
You obviously are trolling. Gears of War 1 and 2 have sold huge amounts and are clearly very popular games. I am looking forward to Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3 and The Last Guardian with major anticipation, but I am also really looking forward to Gears of War 3. I bet they will all be good games. Brand whores like you though are too clouded by bias to understand that.
Yes you forgot, you're trolling.
They pushed it back to make room for a beta, where are you getting your facts? And what are you talking about Gears/CoD not standing a chance against U3/TLG/ES:S/ME:3? Only one of those games is even remotely close to being anything like Gears 3 and none of them are like CoD. Plus both Gears and CoD sell better and their predesessors are either rated better or the same then all those games. I'm begining to think your comment was just an excuse to list the PS3's "almighty" 2011 line-up again. @Below "Gears/CoD don't stand a chance" at what? There are only two possibilities to what you mean, either Gears/CoD don't stand a chance in sales, or, Gears/CoD don't stand a chance in quality, either way my previous comment shows that Gears/CoD are better in both sales and quality, making your comment of "Gears/CoD don't stand a chance" wrong. Where are you going with "wall street", "traded in right away" and "the circle of nothingness"?
actually aside from uncharted and last guardian me3 and es5 are being bought on my 360 and no one besides the people that live on wall st care about sales i can easily argue how many get traded in right away as well its a never ending circle of nothingness
@femshep Thanks, you made me just realized why they pushed it back. There would have been a lot of comparison articles/videos stirring a lot of fan wars, smh.
@femshep- So lets forget that the games you mention are not even the same genre. So you know Gears 3 and COD are broken without playing them? This is not a race or contest. They will all probably be awesome games...so no reason to do what your doing... Game on...
I'm definately getting Bulletstorm, That game looks really interesting. I've never seen nothing like it before.. as a first person shooter.
Never really liked the Gears of War series but they do make quality games. Having a Beta was a smart move.
looking forward to it
Trollers trolling in a Gears article. Nothing new. I'm exited about Gears 3, maybe i'll get the beta along with Bulletstorm.
man, i was really, honestly hoping this game would wait for the xbox720, apparantly the MS shareholders want the whole console thing scrapped though, no more 720....what a bunch a pukebags
I'd have thought you, of anyone, would be hoping MS and Epic do the decent thing and release the third installment day and date on PC as well as 360. Starting the trilogy on PC then having it taken away to push 360 sales was a tight move and now it's over why can't we, who started Gears on PC have two and three in one package? They nearly put it all right with Fable(even if they never allowed a PC version of F2 no matter how late) so why not Gears? Don't get me wrong Gears3 will be the game which sees me pay for a month of two of Live(the only game at that)but I'd much rather it reappeared on PC where I began the trilogy as it just seems unfair.
ohhh...i want it on pc.....i just know ms's tactics...it will happen when the 360 is at garage sales everywhere and the ps4 is out...i just don't think we will see another console from MS anytime soon, This actually makes me sad....i like consoles for the first 2 or 3 years i own them, then, they just disappoint me...ps3 has been okay...but since god of war 3 it has been a bluray player. my xobx360 was sold off long ago, after alan wake
sounds like you should just stick with pc..
I wish I could get the beta off of the ps3 version, cause that's the one I'm gettin
I hope the keys come with bulletstorm.
