Users on the Gears of War official forums are reporting that the digital certificates for the game have expired, as of 28th January 2009. This means that the game will not launch at a system date post-28th Jan.
this is why we buy games on 360 not pc
Well, some of us. Admittedly the PC version of Gears is inferior, but in most cases PC versions are the definitive editions.
PC version seemed better to me.
I meant the general opinion, but you're probably right :D
" Well, some of us. Admittedly the PC version of Gears is inferior, but in most cases PC versions are the definitive editions. " You obviously don't possess the PC version. 10x better. Higher res, more detail, higher fps(frames per second) and more maps including xbox dlc, and you get map editor with the pc version plus custom maps from the community. Only thing about PC version opposed to xbox is that xbox version has more people currently playing it.
owned! errr... not owned
So just torrent the damn thing. GoW was not that great anyway.
you can say that again. both of you.
I actually paid for the game. Spent 50% of the time playing and the other 50% tweaking .INI files, because game ran like sh!t. Finally, got it to run perfect, highest res, highest level of detail. Unfortunately, by the time it was done, I was at the last boss fight. That's what I get for NOT pirating it.
shouldn't have been on the pc anyway.
Bought it, loved it, (got a quick fix) still love it. Gears PC looks really good, trumps most games out there including Crysis. Some had trouble cuz it "ran like crap", I would say get a better rig - you got it for Crysis! LOL. Mine runs beautifully with everything turned up. Unfortunately it was handed over to another company who ported it over to PC, regardless it still looks and plays awesome. Hopefully they'll come with a fix soon. Or else my system clock will never be right. ;)
That is retarded really doesn't affect the pirate users but the people who brought it that makes sense
wow that is so sad
When will it stop!!!!
LOL. It's sad because I recently went back to Gears 1 except on PC(better) and this happens.
"Epic" Fail indeed
Maybe Epic was not expecting all of the Gears Of War: 2 hate & they were hoping that no one would notice this lol
They'll likely fix it if people kick up enough stink about it.
and if you change the date of your computer?
It'll work. Temporary fix-around
I just got my new xbox 360 controller for windows today and ordered this yesterday from Play! Thank god I seen this and cancelled my order and I will pirate instead! Ridiculous though I almost bought a dud game!
Although I don’t condone piracy, people should just do it just this one time to stick it to Epic and for all there flaws in the game and screw ups...
how do u check when they expire? i also have World In Conflict which is a Games For Windows game and i would like to know if it is supposed to expire too or not. Thanks to anyone who can help.
World in Conflict doesn't use Live, so you should be ok.
i was just going by the box which says "Games for Windows" lol. Thanks for the response.
Microsoft's PC support is worthless, maybe it was the former head of the GFW who did this as revenge for being laid off
LOL. It's a possibility but also a serious thing.
don't you just love drm....i miss the good old days, when you install a game, enter the cd key...and that was that, what happens when you computer is formatted and you want to install it again you ask?, you enter the same cd key...and the game installs...., i was thinking about buying gears on pc the other day, if it had stopped working after like 2 days i think i would have gone skitz at eb games...
