It seems that the game will be one of the first games to use the new Xbox disc format (XGD3) which as reported adds 1GB of extra data compared with the current format.
can't wait for the game.
same here, hopefully the multilayer won't be as buggy as the 2nd one when it first came out. They had plenty of time to work on this one!
The beta itself was flawless. There will be no problem with the final build.
Good to hear! Gears of War is one of my favorite franchise this gen...."eat sh!* and die!" lol
The beta was pretty [email protected] good. I felt it was ready for release, but they had an entire 3+ more months to work on this. With dedicated servers, this is going to be a fantastic experience.
I always install my games, and so far it's been working. Funny story actually, my 360 RROD'd about 2 years ago. I was pissed off but it just sat around for about 3 weeks and when I was about to send it off to MS, I tried turning it on and it WORKED!! I was so happy and now 2 years later it's still going strong. I hope it lasts a few more years.
great to know that devs can use more space now while creating games for Xbox360. Gears 3 is going to be massive.
I doubt it will be massive. Sorry to be a buzz kill but that's my honest opinion, might have alot of content compared to the older 2 but massive is a big word in the gaming industry. @ Fluffy If he was talking about popularity and not game size then fair enough! I suppose he weren't specific enough. The best game Epic have made this gen for me was Unreal Tournament 3. All those vehicles that transformed and done crazy shit plus the mods! O_o
I think he may mean massive as in a big hit which it will be. And if he is referring to overall size well Epic said it's their biggest and longest game they've ever made.
Unreal Tournament 3! Really? Really? Really? That game was horrible. It didn't even have a story.
Should I take a day off work?
i am lol cant wait goin to a great game
See you guys there!
The Sony gremlins have disagreed that I will be playing this game on the 20th with my fellow Gears fans. I guess that means they will intercept my order from Amazon as well.
How is it on this site you can get away with calling people Sony gremlins but people get marked for trolling instantly when it is the other way around??? And people say this is a pro Sony site.
@buddymagoo Trolling? I simply commenting on the voiceless imps who leave disagrees for no reason at all. In this particular case, as it usually is, it is Sony fanboys disagreeing with somebody for saying that they will be playing an Xbox game. I referred to them as gremlins in good fun as that is what I imagine them to be when they disagree with the most irrelevant things.
I cant wait for this game either, but come on your gonna take a day off work to play a video game, why not just play it after you've finished work
11 more days to complete the series. Co-op will be awesome.
its one gig extra people. get real. lol
its significant dude. I am sure lots of developers appreciate the extra space
But i thought 2 discs? If it's 2 discs and 1gb extra on each then good, if it's just 1GB extra on 1 Disc then forget about it.
If it ships on one disk it shows how useful having all the data on one disk is. I can now see that some now appreciate the extra space that wasn't 'needed' before...you gotta laugh but this is GOOD not BAD and it shouldnt be downplayed. Spreading games over multiple disks doesnt affect all games but it may hinder some in one way or the other. Stop telling us about playing fallout 3 for 92 ours off one disk when its obvious that approach doesnt work for all games or there would never be games shipping on multiple disks at all. Day one for me...time to dust off the 360, get a cheap live and trade in my resistance 3 for credit to put towards this once ive completed it. Crammed year end incoming...grab your tools people oh, ill be installing this anyway, great feature.
From what I 've seen and said myself I dont think anybody has ever seriously debated whether or not more space(bluray)is better option than having less space(DVD), but speaking specifically in terms of what devs NEED, I think its still a very fair statement to say bluray is NOT needed/a neccesity. Still with Skyrim and 98% of games on 1 disc + this game itself is proof of that, even without the 1gb extra space, at worse case scenario it would still be the same game on 2 discs, much like BF3, devs achieve the same end result contained on 2 discs vs 1 and yet the angry mobs didnt riot in the streets after hearing this disastrious news, lol sorry Why o why, I know I just went too heavy on the sarcasm, but you know how I roll.
Please find an article on N4G that supports your claim or comments that people have said that. "extra space that wasn't 'needed' before." Your just one of those people who cant help them self's and has to throw in a flame bait line in every comment. Why wouldn't any1 welcome extra space?
I think you'd be a little more appreciative of that extra 1GB if you yourself were a developer.
Just got me a oem 60gb for my slim just for installing games on my hdd & playing old xbox games, damn good deal $25 with the slim case. :) Screw you microsoft $110 for your 250gb ofical one.
If you have a 360 Slim, you can get a 250GB HDD off Amazon like I did for $44. Works great, and I've had no problems with it!
True but i wanted backward compatability so i could play the games from last gen. I had seen the $40 250gb on amazon but its a generic hdd, i wanted OEM :) Truth be told there isnt a whole lot to store on the hdd since you cant save media there, so i just got this for storing games & playing old xbox games!
I bought a 250gb for $50 and enabled the backwards compadability myself ;)
250GB HDD I'm good to go.
ready to install this in my 320 gb gears of war xbox in september 20!!!
Add me for Gears 3 MesonicShadonic
I'll have to install the game before I play it, its going to be the longest 10 minutes of my life.
I was extremely excited for this game...until I found out that you have to pay for locked content on the disc to get the full experience. Yes you read that right. Epic has decided to lock some content from the disc (weapon and character skins) and if you want to access the locked content you have to pay for it. I was never a really big fan of DLC, but this is just taking it to another level. Making us pay for game content that is already on the disk? I'm sorry but that is bullshit!
sure microsoft do that already by making you pay to play online. why would a few skins/weapons change your mind? you either like the game in which case youll get it or you dont and you wont. sounds to me that your stealth trolling.
Crap, I really need to upgrade from my old 20GB hard drive!
"It seems that the game will be one of the first games to use the new Xbox disc format (XGD3)" -lol and they say they are gaming journalists,what a big fail this article is when they are talking about XGD3,GEARS 3 isn't the first game,Deal Island(the EU version is not using it),Driver,Space Marine,all of these are already using XGD3 ,at least if they are making an article about this the should get their facts straight
Its the first game to use the extra space.
gears 3 will be better than battlefield 3
