Is "in the same class as PlayStation 3"
A Gears of War game for NGP? It's not like MS owns the IP. It will be hard for a Gears game to get hype on a Sony machine since its sitting right besides Uncharted. It may turn some 360 people to buy a NGP and/or PS3.
Nice, does this mean Cliffy B becomes one of the Dark Side? Last year he seemed pro-PS3, really loved Heavy Rain and GoW3.
Gears of War Sigma coming
Oh my gosh. I could care less if Gears came to PSP2 or not, but it would definitely be funny. I wouldn't buy it, but it would get a few 360 heads to pick up a PSP2. I just wonder if MS is ever going to make a real dedicated portable gaming platform or not. I mean, yeah sure, there's the Windows 7 Phone, but that's not the same as a PSP2 or a 3DS. Any thoughts?
"Nice, does this mean Cliffy B becomes one of the Dark Side? Last year he seemed pro-PS3, really loved Heavy Rain and GoW3." Loving Heavy Rain and GoW3 doesnt mean you are magically "Pro PS3". Its just shows he likes GAMES, unlike the mass fanboys on this site who cant enjoy anything unless it came from Sony. Us gamers play GAMES not SYSTEMS.
Square Enix - esque Megaton betrayal confirmed for E3??
@ Vinnepaz How can we play Games without Systems ????
"Nice, does this mean Cliffy B becomes one of the Dark Side? Last year he seemed pro-PS3, really loved Heavy Rain and GoW3." You can tell that he have had a changed of heart and is now slowly embracing the PS3, first in secret, but more and more open recently. Soon he will be consumed by the Darkness and he will kill his Master, the Microsoft join forces with the Dark Master, Sony.
would love gears on ngp
i would not... sorry, not a GeoW fan here. felt like i wasted my money on both the first and second. won't be making that mistake with the 3rd
your choice, who cares
@joydestroy If you weren't a fan of the first, why did you buy the second...?
@ Esena.....LOL So true.
he did it because he thought the second would be improved?
It seems that they really like the NGP and the "cross-platform" option between NGP and PS3 users, hopefully they will do a game with that option as well. More games = more fun for everyone.
there they go teasing us again smh, im looking more forward to SOCOM on the NGP now ive lost hope for gears being on any Sony system
...if they pull off gears on that thing i'll be interested if it looks better than any gears before it i'll get it =)
*SPOILER ALRET* Marcus dies in GOW3 but not before he makes sweet love to the locust queen. Expect a Gear of War spin-off game with Marcus Locust Jr.
Gears of war never coming on a sony product epic president pretty much kill that dream along time ago.
they can make a new ip always. Bulletstorm on this would be pretty cool BTW.
Gears of War is owned by Epic not Microsoft. Epic can put Gears anywhere they want. The reason why the Gears trilogy(The 3 main games) is exclusive to the 360 is because of their contract with microsoft. Gears 3 is supposed to be Epic's last exclusive game for the 360(They can extend the contract). They can make a Gears spin-off on the NGP or PS3 if they want. They can star Cole "Train" and Baird on that one.
Actually,it's the first 2 games that are exclusive to the Xbox. The 3rd could be on any platform Epic wishes it to be.
@baseballkid really? then how is it possible I have Gears for my PC?! =O AM I GOD?!?!?!!?!?!?
You'll be surprised...
Yes... Gears-style gameplay... not Uncharted-style gameplay... *confused*
I'm confused because they're very similar as third-person cover shooters with melee attacks. Seriously, if a game like Uncharted can be played on the NGP, then any other third-person shooter can be played on it. Honestly, no need to make it seem like it's some sort of revolutionary jump here to have Gears when tons of other games have been done on former PSP models as well.
See the difference between Uncharted and Gears is the "feel" of the game. I'm not talking atmosphere or guns, just how your character controls. Uncharted is more "floaty" like inFamous or Littlebigplanet, where your character stops a little bit after you let go of the stick. It's more realistic, but it's also a little less precise. Gears is very "tank" like, sort of like Resident Evil, where you are always over the shoulder and cannot see the front of your character. Very slow and deliberate. They are two very different games.
I agree Cheeseknight28, but none of that is specific to the technical requirements needed to play any of those games. Those are designed differences in the code, that's all. So, Epic saying it's great for Gears-style gameplay... really just means they would consider putting another TPS on the platform. It's a statement made, though, to think that they couldn't put it on most platforms already, since they can.
They are heavily different in terms of gameplay... Gears plays nothing like Uncharted. Sure, they are both third-person games and the use guns. But those are about all the similarities.
Having played Gears of War and both Uncharted games... gotta disagree. Sure, the weapons are different and the opponents are different, but the core concepts never changed. In both, you can adjust weapon capabilities and mob capabilities, but that doesn't change what they are, only the specifics of each item, which is expected.
I've played both too... In Uncharted you platform, in Gears you do not. They are different genres of games. There are more differences that similarities.
Microsoft is doomed!! No More Exclusive For You!!!
You do know that epic is big right and 3rd party. If they wanted they probably could release Gears 3 exclusively on ps 3 wasn't it a 2 game deal? But then you have to deal with shitty sony marketing and have to make 2 version. So a 3rd party exclusive deal is nice because of one you get microsoft marketing machine behind your ip. Only have to worry about one system. Less cost overall. Dont get me wrong i just see gears as a 360 franchise i rather have a new ip on psp 2 but im not getting one if it's over 300 then 3DS is a better option for me nintendo nostalgia can't help it.
Lol, everything with dual joysticks are good for Gears type games.
well said bro this is a waste of article people are so stupid nowadays
MS and Epic have an excellent relation. Sorry, no gears outside the 360.
..apart from that time they fell out over Unreal Tournament III
PC says hi.
Epic should create a new Trilogy of GOW on the PS3 Marcus Fenixs story is coming to an end but it would be nice to see a different character take the lead. Hopefully it's the COLE TRAIN :D
So the Gears series might become available for PS fans. What does that leave Microsoft with? Halo?
its possible, the Gears on PS3 I mean, wasn't there a deal with MS and Epic for a certain number of Gears titles or something like that? Not sure if it will be Gears specifically but a game in that style could come to NGP (sony please change this codename) or the PS3. @below Thanks for the intel, it will be interesting to see what Epic does after the 3rd game.
Yes. The contract was for three gears games. After that they could either renew the contract or not make it exclusive anymore (or make is PS exclusive which I kinda doubt). P.S. NGP is just a placeholder. It wont be the final name(thank god). :)
i never liked gears but the first one, bored the hell outta me
Love you Epic!
You know it doesn't mean he will bring the Gears series to the PSP2. He could just make another third person shooter using the same type of dynamics as a Gears game. There is no rule saying he can't do that. @ Shackdaddy836. If we get Gears it would bring down Microsoft's exclusives down another notch. With the PC games looking better and Nintendo and Sony with so many exclusives, it raises the question 'Why buy a 360?'
pretty much anything is possible on the NGP coz it has dual analog sticks and a hell of a power to boot so gears style... FPS style---RPG.. fighting... whatever the F* u want can be done on it pretty much ... a console control plus all the touch loving gimmick of phone devices is all in one now.. so pretty big diverse ways to control a game .. on it.. so spin it anything it works.. NGP ftw! iMO.
Looks like Sony has got a winner, Epic's drooling.
Gears ain't coming to ps anything unfortunately. But he might want to make a new ip that's all. "it could run on the new psp". Microsoft owns the rights to gears...that is why it says Microsoft real big when you turn on the game...not to mention it's right on the box and the gears of war website. It's like a dog pisses on all the fire hydrants that are his. That 3 game deal is bullshit thought up by some pinhead and people keep repeating it except the guy made the rumor a 2 game deal meaning 3 would be multiplat....is it.??? No. Exclusively on the Xbox 360. Unfortunately. Trust me I'd love to dump my 360. Once I beat gears 3 on insane both the 360 and the game are outta here! The only rumor that is true is sera California not planet sera.
wow they must really be impressed with the system in order to say that
I think Gears is much better suited for a portable device like NGP anyways
