OMG! There arethings called "game magazines" that have "reviews"?!?

Wow! Not of only thousands of other mags across the world would do the exact same thing, but not have their finding reported like this! Then this article would be stupid to post! Exclamation mark!

solideagle16367d ago

which game is this ? never heard of it

frostbite066367d ago

Its a mainstream japanese magazine so it gets priority.....as for the scores, at least Gears got high marks though it probably wont matter

mellowspaz6367d ago

Damn, Gears of War got great scores from Famitsu. Wow, totally didn't expect that.

Lordimus6367d ago

Since Gears is a 3rd person shooter and full of great gameplay and graphics I don't see how it couldn't score high on Famitsu. Japan typically doesn't enjoy standard 1st person games.

HaKeRsCanRotINHEL6366d ago

they sure do like first person dating simulation games!

Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this.

Stuart5756155d ago

Every article, console fanboy trite, all these years later. Let me explain it AGAIN, in simple terms for the fanboys. Sentient human gamers do have their preferred platform, however they will buy and own multiple platforms so they can enjoy the games they want to enjoy. I own and have owned multiple platforms, Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and now Valve, simply to enjoy a wide range of games across a broad spectrum of platforms. It's great. You don't have to pick a 'team' and cheer them on through thick and thin, dissing the other 'team'. And for you 'VenomUK' to state 'Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this', proves that you're a bit behind. Learn, enjoy, live, develop, trust and coexist if you can, life is better that way.

Blad3runner00155d ago

Well said.
This is why i never understand fanboying over hardware. This is not like a sports team, its just hardware. Why some people have this mentality to pick a side and stick with it and refuse to look at other platforms, therefore depriving themselves of games that are only available on those platforms. They are suppose to be gamers after all?

FinalFantasyFanatic155d ago

It's practically guaranteed to come to PC as well, if that's the case, I might pick it up after it gets a discount or two.

TheEroica155d ago (Edited 155d ago )

Thank goodness for pro gamer companies like Microsoft.... It's about time we unified platforms where now only corporate suits benefit! Pro gamers all the way. Thanks Microsoft!

Yup ... bring Gears 2, 3 Judgement as well as Fable II and Halo 5 to PC

phoenixwing156d ago

Online portions would be a bonus.

FinalFantasyFanatic155d ago

I'm really shocked that Halo 5 still isn't on PC yet, almost everything is ported over and that's the only Halo game that hasn't been ported.

Profchaos156d ago

Take it with a grain of salt this leaker has been wrong many Times

The connection has been rumoured in the past so there's some credibility but it's more if it's actually in testing or not

Father__Merrin156d ago

tell u what gears 3 on series x same 360 game but in 4k and 60fps is a dream it looks crystal clear

Sciurus_vulgaris156d ago

The Series X enhanced versions of Gears 3 and Judgement can at times look like Xbox One titles.

Concertoine155d ago

Yeah i got into Gears 3 multiplayer last year. People still play it a lot. Tons of maps and looks great with the 60 FPS.

Brazz156d ago

It would be funny to see Gears of War collection on Nintendo Switch.
