poor epic :(

im sure it will not effect this game much, ive been waiting for a 360 exclusive to play on my dusty 360 and im not letting this get me down.

NYC_Gamer2335d ago

the game will sell millions regardless of the leak anyway

"not representative of what fans will enjoy when the game launches worldwide"... then what the hell is it. It may not be the final build, but I'm sure it's pretty similar. PR people are so full of it.

Here is comparison between leaked build and trailer build(sp trailer few days before E3).

So...for final build we can definitely expect more polished and non buggy experience.

guitarded772335d ago (Edited 2335d ago )

I wasn't talking about visuals... I'm talking about story and gameplay. The core of the game! I see the disagree clan is out in full force... free of independent thought they carry on.

No Way2335d ago (Edited 2335d ago )

I'm sure the gameplay still has tons of glitches, still, as well..
As for the story, I heard that the last few chapters are missing.
Therefor, yes.. you will be missing out and it's not the final product.

guitarded772335d ago

Oh Jesus Jumping Christ... I am well aware that it is NOT the final build, but to say it is not a representation of the game that we'll be playing is September is stupid. How you gonna walk into court and say, "We have a lawsuit of IP theft, but it doesn't represent the actual IP that we are working on". Case dismissed. This is just some BS PR statement to play down the fact that some a-hole leaked something very significant to MS's biggest holiday exclusive. I know many on n4g take everything literally and don't understand things like legal definitions, and/or take everything ANY major publisher says as the truth.

No Way2334d ago

lol, it's not really a representation when their are still things missing.
Now, if this statement was made having the game gone gold, that's different.
Just like demos, they say the same thing (or similar) most of the time.
That it's not a true representation of the game that you will be buying ..

deadpoole2334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

Epic ... Take my money god dammit and gimme this game like RIGHT NOWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!. Why the fuck would u delay release of this game.:(((

dredgewalker2334d ago

Hacked or an inside job, either way someone has to pay.

gamingdroid2334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

I believe what MS are referring to is the unfinished and buggy game. Some people will think this is the final game.

When Gears 2 came out, people gave it a lot of flack even until today, despite the fact that they fixed a lot of what was wrong with the game. It is a much better game... so yes, a buggy unfinished game IS NOT necessarily representative of the final game.

Now was that really that hard to comprehend?

It was leaked and i downloaded it and ive finished the leaked version..But i will still bye the full version when it comes out.

@LocO_o(Above)..The ban and bubble system on N4G is very flawed...U get bubbled down for saying ur opinion..If u say u hate a game thats a exclusive people call u a fan boy even when ur not a fan boy and take ur bubbles....I got bubbled down for saying i like COD.

Any way people who take bubbles and ban serious are only internet geeks.

JokesOnYou2335d ago (Edited 2335d ago )

No worries, I think every 360 game is leaked, still Gears has a huge following of dedicated fans, its almost like Halo. No big deal really because sort of folks who'd settle for a buggy unfinished game rather than wait for the real deal are an insignificant minority of gamers who don't *pay for most of their games anyway. The beta was awesom and really showed the world that Epic will once again continue to outdo themselves with Gears3= Confirmed the game will sell millions, as you can tell even Epic's PR doesn't sound too worried, lol I'm still not sure they didn't leak it on purpose.

kingdoms2335d ago

Based on your rabid trolling you're no more going to play your "dusty" 360 you supposedly own than I'm going on my vacation to my summer ranch on the planet Mars.

I find it stupid that the pirates that have done this are posting their videos on youtube and using fair use as an excuse. It is stolen, So it isnt their property to use.

Narutone662334d ago (Edited 2334d ago )

Maybe they will say the hackers did it. They've been an attention whore lately.

SoulramonNL2335d ago

I hate the hackers they ruining everything

LocO_o2335d ago (Edited 2335d ago )

I dont think this has any thing to do with hackers but more of an internal leak.

I hope theY find the guy who released it and fire his a$$.

Edit: Then again EPIC was hacked a few weeks ago and maybe the hackers got something out of it - dont think EPIC or MS will admit that hackers got a game build of GOW3.

catguykyou2334d ago

This wasn't the same event. The only thing hacked before was their forums. This is a case of someone getting a hold of one of their old builds and putting it online for people. It is a pretty old build. We can tell by the bugs we see in it that were resolved a while ago.

Parapraxis2335d ago

I don't think this has anything to do with hackers.

Brash_Attack2335d ago

It looks like it's the same build that was used at E3. Maybe someone snagged it off one of the computers during the expo? Not sure if it's hackers or not.

Foxgod2335d ago

Should have leaked a lot later, all games leak eventually, but the later the better.

However, this game will still get amazing sales, this might be the first gears to get near halo 3 its sales.

LocO_o2335d ago

Hopefully this will make EPIC and MS release the game earlier.

I was ok with waiting till Sept but now that I know other people are playing it I can help to think how unfair that is.

Foxgod2335d ago (Edited 2335d ago )

Who the hell disagrees with you, hoping for something.
I hope this site is not representative for the average IQ of humans.

mastiffchild2335d ago

There's been a few REAL idiots disagreeing in an almost offensive manner here today and, unlike the normal disagree fairy it seems this one JUST enjoys disagreeing and not along normal fanboy designated lines.

THC PRITCHARD2335d ago

this is sad man, i mean what is the point.. i am not a big gears of war fan, i just think it harsh.

I will play the game when it comes out, as i have finished the first 2, may as well see how the story turns out.
