and the game's release date and I'll be fine.
That wouldn't seem like "big" news.
PS3 or NGP version !!!!
Haha...Gears of War will never appear on the PS3 or NGP.
gears of war can appear on the ps3. its not impossible. its just unlikely. gears of war is not owned by microsoft.
Let's just say that it is unlikely to the point of basically being impossible. I think those of you waiting for Gears of War on the PS3 are going to be waiting a very, very long time. Gears of War and Xbox are practically synonymous and I bet anything that Microsoft would do whatever it takes to always keep it exclusive.
That and the fact that Gears of War 3 is published by MS. We all know what happened to the original Mass Effect. So in short, Gears of War as an IP might come to the PS3 in another form, but Gears of War 3 is very unlikely to the point of you more likely to win the lottery. ... but hey, it doesn't hurt to hope!
what makes you 360 dudes think we want Gears of War on the ps3 anyways? LMAO!
@DragonWarrior - Killzone 3.
@gamingdroid uh.. i think gears of war 1 and 2 is published by Microsoft. not 3. the contract ended with 1 and 2. epic is free to do what they want from this point onwards.
Because vsr a few comments above asked for it? DUH! @kreate Gears of War 3 is published by MS. Quick Google Search: "Publisher Microsoft and developer Epic Games announced today that Gears of War 3 has been bumped back to holiday 2011, giving the designers roughly seven additional months to work on the game." Source: http://xbox360.gamespy.com/...
I'm not silly enough to believe it's gonna happen, but a PS3 version is not out of the question for definite. Microsoft will kick up a fuss, but Epic owns the IP and are not wholly dependant of Microsoft. @ Starchild - that's what people said about BioShock and Mass Effect. @ gamingdroid - as it stands, the 360 version of the game is published by Microsoft. If Epic wants to make a PC or PS3 version, they could. None have been released yet and license agreements may not be finalised. If Microsoft doesn't publish it on those 2 platforms, someone else might. It's not impossible. I'm surprised Microsoft doesn't have a stronger hold on Epic and the Gears franchise.
Yay, I hope it's a beta too <3 I wonder if they'll bring back GeOW to PC this time around?
All I can do, is buy Bulletstorm on PC and cross my fingers. But Epic needs to make something awesome in DX11 if they want to stay a major graphics competitor...
they are moving the release date earlier?
I think the holiday release was just a place holder. Microsoft said they have some big titles up their sleeves. I think Kingdoms is a higher profile game to Microsoft for this year and god knows what else.
PS3 version confirmed!

Its Gears Baby OOOOO YEEAA ( Cole Train Voice)
Looks like Gears is coming to Nintendo Wii and Ps3
I can see you PS3 guys really want it bad.
Coming soon dude
Why wouldn't they? Its a great series and I would love it to come to the PS3. When it comes to games the more the merrier.
Exactly, it's a good thing when the PS3-only or Wii-only owners want the game. Only shows that the game is quality. But I can't wait to hear what they are announcing tomorrow.. BETA DATE :D
It would be great to have it, yes! But it's certainly not ranking anywhere near as high as others on my 2011 wishlist.
Beta incoming most likely and probably very soon.
Yeah, it's gotta be something to do with the beta.
Another MS announcement? It looks as if Sony has been in the spotlight a little too long.
360 fans did say this on Mass Effect 2 "never it will come to a PS3, Bioshock they said the same", but this is different since Epic Games supports 360 quite long now. But I think they have made more money if they went multiplattform with the Gears-series Epic Games have lost about 1000000$ and more just to be on the 360 within terms of sales. Each Gears Of War game had at least sold about 9-11 million copies if it had been for multiplatform I belive :)
I disagreed because you wasted your time posting that crap. Microsoft is the publisher of Gears 3. Is any PS3 game I choose coming to the 360 because PS3 fans said MGSR, FF13, LA Noire etc were not coming to the 360?
Woah. A whopping 1 million dollars! I'm sure Mark Rein and his pals are weeping over the lost sales. As tobysims have already pointed out; Gears of War 3 is being published by Micrsoft. Bioshock and Mass Effect 2 was not. Besides, the marketing campaign for the first Gears was insane. Who knows how well it would have sold if it wasn't for Microsoft?
I hope the announcement lives up to the hype. We know about so many things already: 4 player co-op, Female Gears, beast mode, improved horde, weapon skins, mutaters, new story writer Karen Traviss I believe, multiplayer beta, alternate multiplayer appearances. I dont know what they could announce. I dont think a beta date deserves this much hype, Gears 3 will NOT have kinect support. The only thing that comes to mind is that we will find out what Gears:Exile is! Im excited.
Don't forget the most important: dedicated servers
Yeah seriously! Good one man, thanks. Can't believe I left that one out.
Cant be anything suprising since we have seen a ton from the game already
If that were true 80% of articles on N4G would vanish.
Well I dont want a ps3 version of Gears 3, although it is my fav platform. Why? Its been developed as a 360 exclusive up until this point, making it multiplat would not make it any better that is for sure. Might not become any worse, but it could be because they would have to share time and resources between two plattforms. Unless they do it sort of like 2k and Bioware did with Bioshock and ME2 and released their games later on. Gears 3 day one.
Announcing the announcement?
