I seriously thought it was God of War. They need new abbreviations. I thought God of War is the original GoW??

Gandalf3441d ago

How many times do we have to go through this?

LordMarius3441d ago

GoW = God of War
Geow = Geometry Wars
Gears = Gears of War

itsralf3441d ago

i also hate how God of War and Gears of War are both abbreviated as GOW.
messes me up every time... i saw the title and was like, whaa? >.<

Megaton3441d ago

GoW = God of War
Gears = Gears of War

Few stragglers still left behind mixing it up from time to time.

Feral Gamer3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

Only an idiot would get Gears of War and God of War confused. It's simple if you read the context. Quit being stupid.

Xi3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

MGS = Microsoft game studios
MeGS = metal gear solid... ?

I mean what's our demarcation for these specific abbreviations?

Ravage273441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

i thought they were entertaining the absurd idea of God of War coming out for the 360......well the xbox fans can keep this one, we have better 3rd person shooters - Uncharted 1 & 2

AKNAA3441d ago

Is this just his assumption?? cause after skimming through the article I might have missed the part where EPIC states that the next gears will be a MS xbox exclusive game still?!

Anyway, can't wait for GOW to come out in march on the PS3!!

Consoldtobots3441d ago

whew Im glad somebody finally came out and made an effort to stop this internet frenzy over gears going multiplat. /s

barom3441d ago

Well if MS is hiring developers to support Epic with the next Gears. It does sound a bit logical that it would stay exclusive. It is still a theory I guess but it does have some ground.

Final_Rpg3441d ago

dude, one's a game studio the other is a game. They are completely different beings therefore can share the same abbreviation. They aren't from the same category, Gears of War and God of War are.

rockleex3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

"MGS = Microsoft game studios
MeGS = metal gear solid... ?"


1. Metal Gear Solid came out in 1998 and people have been calling it MGS since. Microsoft Game Studios were just created in 2002.

2. One is a game and the other is a game studio.

3. God of War came out on the PS2 in 2005 and was called GoW by people and the media for more than a year before Gears of War came out on the 360 in 2006.

4. We can call each game whatever we like. But the majority of people associate MGS with Metal Gear Solid, GoW with God of War, and Gears with Gears of War.

For example... MJ could stand for Mick Jagger, Michael Jordan, etc. But the majority of people use it as an acronym for Michael Jackson.

Sarcasm3441d ago

Who even says it's going to the 360, my guess is the next GeOW will be a Xbox 3 exclusive!

Guido3441d ago

Do we need journalists writing articles about silly fanboy rumors that we all know will never come true? I can see ME2 coming to PS3 (very unlikely however) but Gears? Never. That has been and will forever be an Xbox 360 exclusive... (and PC).

gaffyh3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

@1.6 - The demarcation is whatever abbreviation is older. GOW = God of War, because it was the original. MGS = Metal Gear Solid, because it was the original.

Gears of War is GeOW or Gears, but you can still figure it out from the context, it's just annoying to have more than one game using the same acronym.

theEnemy3441d ago

here's another one, but it doesn't concern Gears though..


pixelsword3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

When it goes to the PC (which was the rumor) it will no longer be exclusive to the 360. A PC isn't a 360, so exclusiveness will be lost; that's what exclusive means.

I almost feel the need to shoot this article down, as it's creating news, not reporting it with much accuracy.

Xgamerzus3441d ago

Who cares UT3 mods has Marcus Phoenix and the Cole train ,you can kill them all day!!!
Plus if anyone has the balls to actually make a simple linear level and call it gears on UT3 do it!!!!!
Unreal engine is there for you!!WHo needs Epic!
But as far as im concerned Gears can be on PS3 and easilly beat the original if Epic knows their ASMP GPU Cell GPU code.
But do they??

Xgamerzus3441d ago

Also Ever heard of Quantum Theory!!!
If these guys go out and get help from insomniac and others and learn how to leverage the power of PS3 this game might perhaps equal the efforts of GeOW

BUt at what cost?? who's funding this game if at all??
Im just hoping the game is just as good; and im betting it will be!!!
Massive bosses please !!and amazing cinematics!!!!! and variety of gameplay scenarios (drving tanks and aircraft and bombing missions, on creatures, would make it icing on the cage..GOOD luck Quantum theory!!!
Take it to GeOw!!!!adn M$!!!!!!!!!!


vhero3441d ago

The reasoning on the article is flawed though the reason people think its going multi-platform though is because Epic only have a2 game deal and going multi-platform isn't abandoning your market like the article states that's just a stupid, stupid thing to say if anything its expanding it. What a pointless article by a fanboy who s scared yet another exclusive will no longer be just that. Until we hear something from Epic we don't know anything. I think by now they would have come out and deny multi-platform though.

D4RkNIKON3441d ago

Xbox fans need this game so we can't take it. Without it they only have HALO 1, 2, 3, Halo wars, ODST and soon enough REACH. All those games!

-GametimeUK-3441d ago

GoW = Gears of War
GodOW = God of War


IaMs123441d ago

Im sorry but for those who got this mixed up with God of War, open your eyes! Theres a picture!

Mr Logic3441d ago

Let's just start with the fact that I think Gears will remain MS exclusive.

But IMO this makes no Logical sense whatsoever.

"Rein wanted everyone to know that Gears of War 3 will be on the software giant's flagship console. Why? Because it don't make sense to jump ship, leave behind millions of fans and start afresh with a new base in the same generation."

IF and that's a big IF, Gears were to come to PS3 who came up with the idea that it would abandon the 360?

Foliage3440d ago (Edited 3440d ago )

I'm a huge Gears 1 fan, but Gears 2 blew chunks. The latest unreal also blows chunks. Epic is getting worse, so I don't expect much from Gears 3

More shiny wet textures, and more grayscale.

No, no. It's coming out on PS3 early next year and will conclude Kratos' tale.

koehler833441d ago

Aw ya beat me to it.

Bubbles for swiftness.

Trebius3441d ago

Thank you VERY much for killing this rumor!

Because we OH SO BADLY want Gears of War on the PS3! OMG we are SO crushed by this news!

AngryTypingGuy3441d ago (Edited 3441d ago )

Yeah you're right. Marcus Fenix doesn't have long enough hair, and he's not wearing enough eyeliner for PS3 fans to want Gears on their console.

Defectiv3_Detectiv33441d ago

Actually, I beleive epic have stated that the next Gears will come out on next gen consoles, plus, they only signed a 2 game deal w/ MS initially. Whether or not they are going to work out another deal remains to be seen...

robotnik3441d ago

man this blog sucks so much it's hard to believe, even the name is lame. It's worse than HHG.

theDutchFella3441d ago

wtf does a PS3 owner need this game for anyway? We have more than enough AAA games out now and in the future.

CrippleH3441d ago

As long as we got the Uncharted series it's all good.

NoBias3440d ago

Yeah we have a lot of great titles on PS3 but we'd also be damned fools to not except other solid titles as well. Quit acting like such a stuck-up prick and start acting more like someone who likes to play games.
