God of War 3 versus Gears of War 3 in 2010?

Split-Screen writes: "Both are equipped with their own tweaks - GoW 3 with a second playable character and new game play mechanics, and Gears 3 with it's 5 player co-op. Both are summations of the most illustrious trilogies in next-gen gaming. Hell, both of them have the same initials.

"Which leads to the million-dollar question: Are we looking at a clash between God of War 3 and Gears of War 3 in 2010?"

God of war 3 is 09 though isnt it?

BulletToothtony3598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

One game is even just a rumor!!

What's wrong with these websites... This is how fanboys wars start.

I'm sick of this, making a 2 year article on 2 totally different games and one of them is not even announced i think it's a little, no wait... A LOT out of hand..

Monchichi0253598d ago

Sony needs God of War in 09 and Gears is likely in 2010. But let's not start the whole who wil sell more now PLEASE!!!! We all remember the Gow2 vs R2 arguement now, don't we?

ultimolu3598d ago

I think they'll make a Gears 3 but its a rumor. God of War III is confirmed to be in development.

JOLLY13598d ago

I am not suprised they are trying to get hits, but I would have guessed they would have put god of war against ODST. I guess they just liked that both are considered GoW to their fanbase.

solidt123597d ago

No official date but it has been said to be a 09 release for GODIII. Last I heard it was for March but that seems to soon since we have'nt seen any gameplay yet.

Xbox Street Gang3597d ago

It's articles like these that fan the flames of fanboys...

/irony

Danja3597d ago

But seriously GOW3 and GeOW3 should never be compared

How about GOW3 VS NG3 ??

WANNA GET HIGH3597d ago

Wtf is this sh1t.They are too different games..... :/

And god of war 3 is coming out next year.(i know but i cant tell u how i know)... NDA!!!

solidsnakus3597d ago

whats so good about god of war anyways. isnt just like ninja gaiden and dmc. some button masher. i heard ng series was better.

candystop3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Did Sony ever actually give a release date for GOW3? If not then ten bucks says that it's quite possible given Sony's track record to push it back. I'm sure with the way the economy is doing and Sony as a whole that it will have some repercussions on release dates for expensive to make PS3 games. Maybe this is also part of the reason why MS let go of so many studio's to keep the flow of things happening instead of getting stuck in a bad position like Sony.

edit below: I'm not saying it's coming this year but a lot of people on this sight are. There's a good chance if they announce GEOW3 that the two could collide, but who knows.

DiabloRising3597d ago

If it hasn't been given a release date (which it hasn't) then how can it be pushed back?

Bnet3433597d ago

Hey can anyone tell me which game is better Barbie's Horse Adventure or Mortal Kombat vs DCU?

joevfx3597d ago

no they said god of war 3 end of 2009 but most likely 2010. They arent gonna release that game till its 200% done

solidsnakus3597d ago

"They arent gonna release that game till its 200% done"

really? cause sony has a history of releasing games when there done lol, say that to the socom team.

Rhoic3597d ago

Oh god I hope they make a Ninja Gaiden 3.. even though Itagaki left Team Ninja. Ninja Gaiden 2 is one of the best action games I've ever played.

The Killer3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

i think u should play a little bit more,

NG2 is the worst in the series and NGS on ps3 does better things and higher quality, so even within the same genre there is a better sequels, but what the most part i dont see how u could say the best game ever u played, there is at least 5-10 game that YOU would like more just in the ps2!! i dont need to go to the current gen for a better games!

@solidsnakus

say that to LBP,HOME,MGS4,MS:PR,R2,unchart ed,R&C:ToD,heavenly sword should i got on?

Rhoic3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

I'm pretty sure I've played through it 6 times. I own a PS2 which broke down.. yay falty disc drives. Also, I said it's one of the best ACTION games I've ever played.. not one of the best games. How about you actually play it, rofl.. Just cause there's a Ninja Gaiden on the PS3 doesn't make it better, and no.. the quality of NG2 > NGS. Even Danja agrees it's a phenomenal action game.

Quit being a selfish whiny turd and actually enjoy games instead of going by their review scores.. Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the exact same game as the one on the original Xbox with some slight added features.. why in the world would I go and RE-BUY the damn thing?

morganfell3597d ago

How can it be a proper versus when they are on the same platform?

Gears of War 2 is in development right now for the PS3. Seriously. Just go ask. Four levels of Gears of War 2 on the PC were already given out to everyone on the Unreal Developers Network.

People were asking for copies of Gears 2 on the PS3 and they finally posted a sticky on the developers forums that says "Do not ask for copies of Gears of War 2 on the PS3. We are only giving out copies of titles that have already shipped to retail.

They already have Gears 2 MP running for the PS3 using the Gamespy middleware.

There is no doubt Gears 3 will be on the PS3 as well.

Rhoic3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Morgan.. I'm sorry, but you're a moron. Considering Microsoft published, marketed, and FUNDED Gears of War 2, let alone EPIC is in contract with them.. they aren't making a Gears of War 2 on the PS3.. let alone a Gears of War 3. Microsoft has enough money to fund EPIC... forever, literally. Not to mention it has MS's publishing logo on it rofl.

http://www.shacknews.com/on...

No PC port
No PS3 port

Link please.

morganfell3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

If you will get a license and join the Network I will give you a link. Everyone on the network knows about this. And you also need to read the rules of the Gamer zone. using the word moron isn't one of the things you should be doing.

I know you are mad at the fact some developer told you something less than truthful and we all know Epic has never ever lied before.

Also it says no PC port. The PC versions were given away - the same thing they did with Gears 1 except we were playing 5 levels instead of 4 while Epic was in denial.

Also in the link you provided he never says no PS3 version.

MS did not pay for the development of Gears 2.

MS publishing Gears 2 means nothing. MS has published titles before only to have someone else publish them on a different platform. Jade Empire anyone? MS published it on the Xbox but 2K published it on the PC.

Rhoic3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Um.. there's absolutely nothing wrong with saying Moron. You're obviously breaking the rules all the time along with the 90% of the members on here, YOU HYPOCRITE.. lolz.

Point being.. the developers didn't tell me this. Microsoft did.

"If you will get a license and join the Network I will give you a link."

"The Unreal Developer Network is the official support site for both licensees and mod developers of the award-winning Unreal Engine real-time technology."

Yet it's not the official site of Gears of War 2, which is run by Microsoft and EPIC.. This is a site for people to work with the Unreal Engine, not Gears of War. What in the world would make you think that a site saying something about a PS3 port that isn't the official site justifies a thought that it is coming to the PS3?

EDIT:

I'm not breaking the rules at all.. There is nothing friendly and civilized about this site even in the gaming zone. So for you to call me a 'rule breaker' would mean you yourself are doing the same. Also, I just went to the site and looked around everywhere. The only things people can work with are maps of the ORIGINAL Gears of War with the Unreal Engine 3.. not freaking Gears of War 2 rofl.

"MS publishing Gears 2 means nothing. MS has published titles before only to have someone else publish them on a different platform. Jade Empire anyone? MS published it on the Xbox but 2K published it on the PC."

That's because Microsoft owns PC gaming.. Seriously? Is this difficult for you? Anything on Games for Windows? Hello? Tell me a title that actually went to a different CONSOLE (something other than PC/360) that was published by Microsoft.

And yes, Microsoft helped fund Gears of War 2. Just like they did with Gears of War.

I also went and typed in 'Gears of War 2' in the "Search Public Documentation" And guess what? Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Not one article, thread, blog, anything pertaining to Gears of War 2.

Gonna have to call you out on this one... :x

Gue13597d ago

Well, the X360 doesn't have anything left besides Halo and GeoW.....

morganfell3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Unreal 3 Developers License. And yes you are breaking the rules.

Nop they did not fund Gears of War. They paid for advertising but they did not fund it. Your only proof? You just say so and that is it? No. You are just making things up that fit you Xbo 360 world. Epic is one of the few dev houses powerful and wealthy enough to pay for their own development. That is how they re,main independent and still own their IPs. Gears of War is owned by Epic. MS bought exclusive rights to Gears 1 but they couldn't afford the same on Gears 2.

Things are going to be rough for you in your young life when this goes public. Even if you never visit this site again when you hear about it, and you will, you are going to think of me and gnash your teeth in anger. I will be laughing.

I will be laughing because I know what kind of resources Epic has committed to this project. Most of developers on that forum understand. The difference is I am the first one to say something about it.

You don't do what Epic has done on a whim. You also don't do that to research the Unreal 3 engine. You don't bother getting Gears of War 2 interfaces, MP, and the like up and running on the PS3 just because you are tweaking Unreal 3 for PS3 or because you are curious. That is what the Unreal 3 dev kit is for.

LastDance3597d ago

Gears of war has never been good. why would it all of a sudden be better than god of war 3.

Beast_Master3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Just keep opening that mouth! You must really hate having those Bubbles!

And Microsoft was the publisher on Gears 1 and 2, Cliffy B said it on Bonus Round on Game Trailers, last year. So Gears could probably never go multi-plat.

Arnon3597d ago

Not only are you a moron, but your ego clouds your judgment.

1. The fact that you said Microsoft couldn't afford to buy exclusive rights to Gears of War 2, just shows that you really don't know what you're talking about. Microsoft, not being able to afford something? Yeah right.. Their Publishing logo and "Only on Xbox 360" logo on the front cover of Gears of War 2 must be fake, huh?

"The difference is I am the first."

2. First off. If this was true, and the site you are showing is credible, in ANY sort of way.. Microsoft would have immediately stepped in. Also.. use your head. If this was true, it would be posted all over the site INSTANTLY. Not hidden away in some forum rofl. And you would also know that you would OBVIOUSLY not be the first to mention this, as it is huge news.

3. I was aware that there is, again, nothing relating to Gears of War 2 on the site you mentioned. Literally. I looked through all the dev kits you were allowed to use.. and none of them said you could use anything from Gears of War 2, except the Unreal Engine 3. Epic doesn't hand out multi-player maps from a game like Gears of War 2. Now, maybe someone MADE maps that looked just like some of the maps on GeOW2, but they weren't from EPIC.

4. You're still not showing me any proof that we can take this site's forum literally rofl.

SuperM3597d ago

Gears3 on PS3 can happen... If Epic wants to make more money then thats what they will do. As for MS being able to afford anything, sure they can, but MS are not interested in just spending money, they also wants to make money. There is definately a limit to how much MS is willing to pay for just about anything. Besides there is also a limit to how much resources MS gaming division has. They aint gonna poor all their money in to one division. I do however think MS will be willing to spend quite abit of money to make Gears3 exclusive aswell. The question is, will Sony start playing rough, and pay Epic to make gears come to PS3 aswell? It might actually happen. Only time will tell

morganfell3597d ago

Here is what you are missing. I don't care if Gears 2 comes to the PS3. I have played the 4 PC levels and frankly it is a little *yawn* and predictable.

But that doesn't change the facts. Gears 2 is coming to the PS3 and all of your naysaying and sophomoric name calling does not change the fact that in 2009 MS is going to take a huge hit as Gears 2 is announced as going to the PS3.

Arnon3597d ago

I'm not missing anything.. there's a lot you are missing though. Not one game with a Microsoft Publishing Logo has ever gone to another console.. know why? It's illegal unless Microsoft gives them the rights. Now mind you.. I said PUBLISHING LOGO, not "Only on Xbox 360" logo. Another thing to mention is that your logic is def. flawed when you say they didn't have to money to purchase publishing rights to Gears of War 2 yet again.. their logo is right on the front cover lulz.

Also, if people are playing Gears of War 2 on the PC right now, then that is also illegal, as it has not been allowed by either Microsoft OR EPIC.

"But that doesn't change the facts. Gears 2 is coming to the PS3 and all of your naysaying and sophomoric name calling does not change the fact that in 2009 MS is going to take a huge hit as Gears 2 is announced as going to the PS3."

Sorry.. it isn't going to happen ^_^. I understand that you want the series more than anything, but you're going to have to buy a 360 for Gears of War 2.

morganfell3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

You do not understand a publishing logo. It isn't illegal. It only means that for that period of time, that company is publishing that game for a certain platform. Unless a company paid for exclusive publishing (and a logo does not signify that) there is nothing to stop another publisher from providing the game to another platform or even to the same platform. That is the law. Do some research next time.

And I don't want it. I own a 360 and didn't bother to get the game. I could care less. it is just burning people like you up.

zethos563597d ago

How convenient that you're the first to know this. At least be a believable troll.

morganfell3597d ago

At least learn to read. As I said I am not the first one to know. Just the first one to say something. People need to think how dumb they are going to feel when this gets announced. It should start bothering the perceptive that I am being so sure this is going to happen. There should be an alarm bell or two.

I haven't posted anything here I couldn't back up before. I am not starting now. The smart people are at least saying they will take a wait and see attitude. Think about it.

Arnon3597d ago

Except.. Cliff B. stated HIMSELF that Microsoft owns the rights to Gears 1 and 2.

Arnon3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Really, now?! Did you know that Microsoft had published BioShock for a limited amount of time? Oh, but guess what? Their logo wasn't on the front cover. Microsoft, has all rights, to the Gears of War franchise.. Not to mention.. that you are a horrible troll, for even thinking that Microsoft doesn't have enough money to buy exclusivity. "But but but but but this one site has modded maps of Gears of War 2 on PC! That MUST mean it's coming to PS3!!" Guess what? You know how I know those maps aren't from EPIC? Because they're still under freaking CONTRACT with MICROSOFT. And EPIC has no rights to let the Gears of War 2 game go to a different platform until that contract is over.. oh but you're right. Microsoft is a piss poor company that cant afford exclusivity, even though they were able to buy out Final Fantasy XIII, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto IV, Star Ocean, Tekken, etc. straight from SONY. Use your head man.

morganfell3597d ago

This is going to be so good. I am making a list of all of the people that won't even be able to show their faces on this forum. I have also saved a copy of this webpage so I can post it up later.

Do you think I am just doing this to troll for 15 minutes? You apparently know nothing of my post history. I wouldn't waste this effort just for a few minutes. No. You and a lot of over eager 360 supporters are in for a rude awakening. Sure it's going to be a few months. Next year. But I have a long memory and I promise I will drag this out and watch a lot of people have to swallow their pride. When it gets announced, every Gears 2 on the PS3 thread will have me posting your names in it non stop.

I will have to wait but you can be sure I will get the last laugh on this. Everyone that has access to the Unreal Developer Network and has looked around has found those PS3 Gears of War 2 bug reports and they are being complied weekly. You had better buy some tissues.

Jessica Alba3597d ago

Action game vs a Third Person shooter? Makes no sense to me.

Sarcasm3597d ago

"PS3 Gears of War 2 "

Morganfell. That's a pretty bold claim. And obviously people have doubts because the game is published by MS.

However, you're right about one thing. Because a game is published, does not mean another company cant publish the same thing if it is not breaching any contracts with the developer.

I am going to file this under 2% possibly true.

But if for some reason in the next few months Gears 2 is announced for the PS3. Then I'll be damned.

Arnon3597d ago

Morgan.. you're entire look on this is flawed..

1. If it is true, then why not just post it to big sites so they all know?

2. Microsoft is still under contract with EPIC. It is virtually impossible for those maps to come from EPIC, as they WOULD be breaking their contract. Do you know what that means? Please tell me you do.. It means that since they are under CONTRACT, those maps would be illegally breaking the CONTRACT since the CONTRACT is not OVER. Not to mention this wouldn't be posted in the backwoods of a forum.. it would be plastered on the front page of THE SAME SITE you keep proclaiming.

3. I notice whenever I state something logical, you ignore it and keep saying the same thing rofl.. try harder. And use your head next time.

MiloGarret3597d ago

"But seriously GOW3 and GeOW3 should never be compared

How about GOW3 VS NG3 ??"

Impossible comparison because games in these series are in a league of their own and are inferior to none in different areas, you'd just come to the conclusion that both are 10/10 in their own way. GOW3 would probably take gfx & story easily, while gameplay and combat system would NO DOUBT be NG3. In the end which one you prefer is up to you. Personally I'd go with NG every time because its the kind game that you can play over and over and never really master, whereas GOW I play once, am blown away, then never play it again. Besides, NG3 wont be out this gen, I think. In terms of sales GOW would pwn NG3 because of the simple fact that its aimed at the mass market while NG is reserved for hardcore only.

likedamaster3597d ago (Edited 3597d ago )

Seriously, I have loved the God of War franchise ever since it landed on the PS2...but me and Ninja Gaiden go way back to the NES days. Ninja Gaiden would be my pick if I had to choose one or the other.

As for Gears 3 and God of war 3? I'm getting both.

U just know God Of War will beat Gears Of War in qulity rather than sales but end of the day it $ales that count, everybody knows wot Ms are like for advertising - there good, thats because they brain wash ya in2 buyin it, isnt God Of War a world wide game? i mean dont the Japs like it aswell and from wot i make out there not keen on Gears Of War (dont quote me) so that should help God Of War 3 sell better

Wizeguy213597d ago

this is stupid! we havent even seen gameplay from ANY game! Just what people have been saying about God of war, and Well NOTHING about gears 3

Raoh3598d ago

Please god no.

no more of these weak battles.

killzone 2 vs gears of war or halo? sure they are shooters.

white knight chronicles vs star ocean? sure they are rpg's

but an action adventure game against a shooter is just lame.

solidt123597d ago

Give them time. I am sure there will be another shooter in 2010 to go head to head with Geow 3. Resistance 3 maybe, I will probably still be playing Killzone 2.

Sarcasm3597d ago

"I am sure there will be another shooter in 2010 to go head to head with Geow 3."

The only one that comes to mind is Quantum Theory, yet we don't know how that's going to come out yet.

Beg For Mercy3598d ago

tryin to sound bogus or anything but isent everyone going to be tired of the same engine after all these years it looks good but plays the same as all unreal games almost some are different mirrors edge but thats a modified version

Pennywise3597d ago

Ive been begging for mercy over them to stop using the UE3. It sucks... its shiny, bulky and old. Please get a new engine and quit making games on UE3!!!!!

joevfx3597d ago

YES!!!! thank you for sayign this, i have been sayign it for ever. The unreal engine at this point is just used cause all teh game devs know it liek the back of there hand and it loooks good so they can bang out games. But for godsake, its hittign its prime, all the games look teh same. be innovative for god sake, spend some money and coem up with a new engine. Gears 3 will look and play exactly like gears 2 unless they start from scratch. God of war 3, is gonna be a HUUUUUUUUGGGGGGEEEEE jump from god of war 2. Your talkign 2 360 games to compair agaisnt each other, and a Ps2 and Ps3 game to compairs. the difference will be beyond obviose.

Sarcasm3597d ago

Maybe Gears 3 will be on the UE4?

And actually don't look shiny on everything. Wishful thinking I know.
