UC3 wins in a sweep! Everything they said was true, I'm surprised the kotaku guy not only picked UC3 but actually said what everyone is thinking about the Gears series; that its gone stale.

If Gears has gone stale, that would mean less people will buy it, right? UC3 will do fine, but expecting it to beat Gears 3, is setting yourself up for disappointment. I am not saying which will be better, as I have no idea what that outcome will be. What I can say is that it will comes down to personal preference. Gears is a more aggressive and gory type of game. UC is more feness and style with jumping and climbing.

From where I stand they look to be to great games coming to your console of choose. Grear will sell more because the US is the biggest market, for both of these types of shooters. Americans will choose aggression over finess shooter. That and 360 has the bigger user base here. Same for UK.

going stale doesnt mean that less people would buy it. look at cod for example, the game is basically the same every year, yet each game sells more than the last one...O_o

There's also a problem with PS3 users.
They don't buy so much great exclusives of the console. Clearly there are more exclusives big AAA game on PS3 than XB360 since couple of years now, but still PS3 users don't go to fully support their great licence.
They are all on forums for the console wars but they don't support the games on the market. Really sad.

At a moment in the emission, one intervenant is talking about God of War, very famous licence in the US. The other superproducion of Sony is Gran Turismo, but it makes more sell in europe than the US. Thos two licence are top scorers there's no doubt about it. Gran Turismo is selling more than any Forza outhere. What makes those licence so famous when great games like Uncharted are clearly top notch exclusives.

When you see pre-order for Gears of war 3 growing and going over the million, at the same time Uncharted 3 is just making 130000 preorders.

Supporting a game is not make quote wars on forums on wich game is the best, has the best graphics or anything else. Supporting game is buying it when it's released.

There are about 55 millions PS3 users in the world and only 130000 have preordered what is considered by Gametrailers a potential GOTY, and somehow a better experience than Gears 3. That's a shame.

The game will sell well some would say it's not a big deal, it's gonna be bundled and after 12 or 15 months it will be over millions, but nothing for the moment that show that PS3 users are supporting game at the moment they are released except for some games and i think Uncharted deserve the same treatment, i totally agree with gametrailers about it : Uncharted is far better than gears series, and i like gears of war. But as it is said in the emission, narration in gears is a mess....

I really hope PS3 users will go for it day one. It's clearly something that will confort Sony by allowing ressources to their first parties and then continue to make great blockbusters like Uncharted.

We're not all thinking that Gears of War has gone stale. What I can't understand is how both Uncharted and Gears of War are both in their third iterations this generation, yet only Gears has gone stale.

Your statement reeks of fanboy bullsh*t.


Sorry Gears doesn't look stale to me, maybe its other way around. I know, you could blame it on the Economy. No that won't work either. Maybe there are more Jocks than NERDS!! That's it lol!! Yeah ya'll can have your classy GOTY. Good luck with that by the way.

Pre orders 16 July 2011

1 Gears of War 3 X360 1,191,301
2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 X360 531,687
3 Battlefield 3 X360 256,875
4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 PS3 236,083
12 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception PS3 137,646

anticooper2497d ago

Thank you for the factual post!

Add Game Trailers to the group punked by SONY Super Fans. The question should have been: what game would you guys like the revenue of? That panel was afraid of being attacked, period.

They had nothing concrete to say that made U3 better than Gears 3.
Gears 3 can say:
4 player story mode campaign co-op
New Horde Mode
New Beast Mode
Just that alone is enough!

What can Uncharted 3 say?:
Nothing...Oh, kickbacks...

Reviewers are weak & can be swayed. However, when someone has to spend an hourly wage on a product; thats the true test of a game being worth the purchase.

Bottom Line:
Game:...................Score :
Gears of War 3......1,191,301
Uncharted 3.............137,646

Please, Gears is going to chop U3's head off!

Also people, this is the 3rd iteration for both games. Sales will not arrive by luck or hype, sales will be gained off the quality of the first 2 iterations!

Game Over!

As usual the Xbox fanboys are playing sales. End of the day, as much as I loved the Gears beta, and will be getting it day one, I know that multiplayer is all it will deliver on. Uncharted 3 will have the unparalleled campaign, and judging from the beta, an extremely feature packed multiplayer.

In terms of package, Uncharted will win. In terms of graphics, Uncharted will win. In terms of story, Uncharted will win, In terms of gameplay/variety, Uncharted will win. In terms of sales Gears of War 3 will win. And ironically when you look at that, the one factor that shouldn't matter to gamers at all, and only the devs/publisher and shareholders, is the one Gears wins at.

It's a great, fun game and will sell a fuck tonne. But as a game, Uncharted is better. And the reason I can say that is not only from the fact it has much wider universal praise than Gears, but the fact that the only thing you zealots can seem to gloat about is the sales. Not the graphics. Not the gameplay. Not the campaign. It's tragic.

A few of us like myself will be playing both Uncharted 3 and Gears 3 this fall. Don't hate.

Bottom line, Buying Gears, borrowing Uncharted.

The pre-orders say it all. Gears has NOT lost their community due to the bad online multipler lobby system for the first couple of months of Gears 2's release despite what those "nerds" on GT think.

Sales for Gears 2 went UP from Gears 1 and now Gears 3 is the setting records for most pre-orders for an exclusive.

Those 3 nerds on GT may have picked Uncharted over Gears....It's Gears that is showing which of the 2 games consumers are willing to put their money down on pre-orders and which one they are looking to borrow or rent.

Matter of taste for me. Uncharted 3 has more class.

jwk942497d ago

For me it's:
Gears 1> Uncharted 1
Uncharted 2> Gears 2
and from what i've played so far
Uncharted 3> Gears 3.

I don't know why, but i just dont have the love for gears 3 that I did for gears 1.

RedDead2497d ago (Edited 2497d ago )

Gears 1 was the first great Tps cover shooter, that could be why...I haven't played Gears 3 beta so I can't comment. Anyhow it was this for me...

Uncharted 2 > Gears 1 > Uncharted 1 > Gears 2

For multiplayer, Gears 1 by a long shot

For single, Uncharted 2 by a long shot

I'll be getting Gears 3 since it's out with barely any competition, Uncharted 3 will have to see, since Battlefield and Elder scrolls are sort of my favorite franchises

iGaMei2497d ago (Edited 2497d ago )

Uncharted 3 looks like a amazing game and since I have a PS3 and 360 and these games come out far apart and both deserve my money for the DIFFERENT experiences that they give me both day 1 purchases for me.

GoW 3 by a country mile for me, while UC3 will have another epic sp campaign the mp, in the beta, just didn't float my boat. GoW 3 has great co op campaign, Horde 2.0, Beast mode and dedicated servers for the mp. It doesn't get better than that.
