Do PlayStation 3 Owners Really Want Gears Of War

PSExtreme: This is more of a poll question, really, but given the number of headlines dedicated to Gears of War 3 recently, we're wondering how many PlayStation 3 owners really want this stellar franchise

I think there are a number of things to consider when examining this question: firstly, we all have to admit that a lot of the "no" answers out there are simply based on bitterness and bias; i.e., the Xbox 360 has a great series that you don't want to acknowledge is great, and because it's not on your system of choice, you - by default - hate it. I know you're out there...just admit it

If it is then yes, I like good games. If it isn't then no, I don't.


FangBlade3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Gears of War 3 on my PC would be nice.
Why waste a good game on a sub-hd console?

ThatCanadianGuy3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

I would imagine some PS owners would love to have it.
But the majority of them, myself included, really could care less.

The series is overhyped in my opinion.

dangert123203d ago

But i'm still give know when i am with my mates and were talking about games.the ps3 owners always say GeOW is heavy and get excited not halo fable n3 etc it's always gears of war so i'd say yeah they want gears and sony should hurry up and make there version...theres cash to be made

Sunny_D3203d ago

You mean Epic right> Sony doesn't make Gears...

dangert123203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

since gears is epics and exclusive to ms atm theres a gaping hole waiting for sony to fill the void on ps3

n4gn4gn4gn4g3203d ago

an so many IPs that they still need to get on there during its lifecycle.

Don't need another shooter.

cry from the sky3203d ago

and we have what...killzone 2, socom 4, didnt mag come out? what about resistance? does the 360 want resistance?

Government Cheese3203d ago

I'm a 360 owner and even I don't want Gears 3 lol. I actually have never played the first 2, but it seems like everyone I talk to says its really good. I guess i'm just not into hardcore gory shooters.

3203d ago
iamtehpwn3203d ago

Since we don't, I really don't all.

Reibooi3203d ago

I would say alot of fans would be stupid to just out right say no. However it's true that the Gears games are no where near as good as other PS3 exclusive games like Uncharted or Resistance and so on.

That said it would just be another addition to the already incredible PS3 line up and that's never a bad thing.

The problem is that PS3 exclusive owners will tend to have higher expectations for the game and it may quite frankly not meet them.

TheTwelve3203d ago

If Gears of War was a hot, awesome Japanese RPG, I would want it. But another shooter? Nah.


MazzingerZ3203d ago

Is this an article from 2007? why would the PS3 gamers benefit from having Gears other than the X360 losing one of the few real AAA exclusives it has for those that care...

I think Mass Effect is a more accurate game for that question as it is a more complete game....Gears was a hit due to the wow factor of the graphics, it's not there anymore or better said, it's not alone anymore in that department which makes other departments as story and gameplay become more relevant and honestly Gears is only good there.

TrailerParkSupervisr3203d ago

why would someone not want a game to come out on a certain platform? Excluding a crappy port or something...

I have both so I don't care but if someone only has one console I would love for them to be able to play a game that sounded cool to them. That's the point to gaming. Play games you like.

sikbeta3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

How much time since the First Gears, 4 years and knowing that you can Play it on PC, Gears2 is x360 exclusive but again, how much time, 2 years and with Gears3 it's going to be the same, if you have a Pal with an x360 play it, What I'm trying to say is that, IF Epic for some unknown reason wanted to release a PS3 version Now (everyone knows it's not gonna happen) is just Pointless cuz it is too late and with the Awesome Games and Support for the PS3, no-1 will whine for 1 franchise...

I Prefer my Best Game This Gen IMO, Uncharted 2

Official General3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

The answer for me as a PS3-only owner is NO. I've played Gears of War 2 and I thought it was quite good. But it did'nt really wow me in any way. To me it's just another decent action/shooting game with beefed up space marine heroes blasting away at aliens. I dont mind that stuff, but those kind of games like that and the Halo series just dont really bowl me over anymore. Killzone 2 is doin me just fine for that scenario.

And for any fanboys who think I'm lying and jealous of 360 owners having Gears, then fine go ahead and think, I aint bothered. I'm just here to share my real opinions as a gamer.

EDIT: Someone's comment on here reminded me, thanks to whoever that was. Now if we're talking about the Mass Effect games the yeah, I may be interested in that coming to the PS3. I'd like a PS3 version of ME 1& 2. I just thought Gears of War 2 was slightly overhyped after I played it.

boodybandit3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

and a huge shooter fan. I own both consoles and I always say the more games the merrier. With that said "I am not" even looking forward to Gears of War 3 after Gears 2. I have lost all faith in Epic with this franchise. The first one had issues and Epic fixed some but not all of them. The 2nd (Gears 2) was and still is plagued with too many issues and it was never fixed.

Why would anyone be sitting on the edge of their seat waiting for a sequel to a broken game or wanting it for their console?

I don't see Sony fans wanting or needing this title and I can't see MS not doing what ever it would take to have it remain exclusive. Sony has enough shooters already. They surely don't want this one. At least not in it's current form.

Although Gears is one of those games that is screaming for dedicated servers. So maybe if it came to the PS3 it would get them.

TOO PAWNED3203d ago

Day 1 if it came to PS3. BTW Resistance 2 single player is pure junk

Timesplitter143203d ago

Anyone who says no is a god damn retard

WildArmed3203d ago

Do they want it?
Yes. Who doesn't want more games to thier library?

Do they need it?
No. They have games that rival gears nicely. But Gears is one of it's kind if you play it.

Gamers would want to experience Gears if they havn't. I dont see why you wouldn't want to. If you have played gears and didn't like it. Thats fine.
But I"m sure there is an eager base that wants gears

vickers5003203d ago

Most people saying that they don't want it have probably never even touched a 360 controller, let alone played it. Gears of War 1 was one of the best third person shooters of all time, and the multiplayer portion of it was miles more fun than uncharted 2's multiplayer.

It's the only reason I bought a 360 after selling my first one, and it was extremely worth it. If the game were a ps3 exclusive originally, then I would literally bet my life on it that people would be praising it as a great game, and I would be right. I didn't like the second one because it sucked, and ruined the game with that matchmaking bullsh*t to where you couldn't even find one game, but the first one was extraordinary (multiplayer wise, story was ok). Those people who are big fans of third person cover based shooters would love Gears of War, but they would have to take off their fanboy glasses first to appreciate it.

Christopher3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Sure, why not? More options, not matter what you think of the game, are always welcomed. Perhaps not 1 or 2, but 3... that would be something I think a lot of PS3 owners could get into.

I don't think a GoW game on the PS3 will do anything to sully existing IPs like Uncharted or Killzone and will only add to the options gamers have with a PS3.

Blaster_Master3203d ago

I dont want that turd anywhere near my beloved ps3.

Larry L3203d ago

I completely disagree. I actually think it would come out better on PS3. Epic has shown 1st hand the results they can get on PS3 with the UE3 with Unreal Tournament 3. It came out FAR better on PS3 than it did on 360 and the 360 version had 6 whole months of extra development time. It had better visuals, better performance, and even controlled tighter along with having more features. Mark Rein and the UT team all had high praise for PS3 hardware, and stated even they were surprised with their results.

I think Gears would come out better on PS3 if Epic wanted it to. It could have better lighting, better textures and better particle effects. But, that being said, Gears will NEVER be on PS3 for 2 reasons. 1. MS would never let it happen. I know they don't control the IP, but the fact is, MS would make sure it never happened with a check that Epic couldn't refuse. And 2. Gears is Cliffy B's baby. He makes the decisions. If it were up to Mark Rein, I'm sure Gears would be on PS3, but he, nor the UT Team have basically nothing to do with Gears, it's all up to Cliffy, and Cliffy doesn't like PS3, he's stated it publicly.

HolyOrangeCows3203d ago

I just want Gears 3 to have a working online. Gears of War 2 couldn't have been a bigger slap to the face with its laggy to heck online. MP was the only part I played of Gears 1.

Bring it to some console. Just bring it working.

DaTruth3203d ago

Only because it would be kind of stupid to give me 3 after not giving me 1 and 2. And I don't want to buy 3 Gears games at once unless there is an amazing deal on the first 2(like GOW collection).

olLANDSHARKlo3203d ago

Who cares, maybe they don't want it. But I don't want gods of war, talk about a series being overhyped, I don't like button mashing games, they get boring in like 5 minutes.

PaLaK-3203d ago

If it ever came I'd buy it, if it didn't I wouldn't lose any sleep over it - I think most ps3 owners who don't have an xbox will agree..

If it ever comes however, the loss for xbox360 will be bigger than the gain for the ps3 as the ps3 already has plenty of great exclusives, and GeOW is one of the 360's main games.

Foliage3203d ago

I liked it up until Gears 2, it's obvious the original was dumb luck, since Cliffy is an idiot and the series is taking a nosedive from this point onward.

Now... NO! PS3 fans have no reason for mediocore shooters, when they have some of the best shooters exclusive on their platform that are much better.

goflyakite3203d ago


If I had to choose an exclusive to take it definitely would not be GeOW.

Automat3203d ago

i'd rather have haze2....

Beefstew4u3203d ago

I personally would love to have the Gears franchise on the ps3. Gears 2 is my favourite 360 game and i would love to play horde mode with my psn friends. Gears 3 should be a great game too and I'm gonna buy it the instant it comes out.

Couldn't care less about the first Gears though. Bought it used last week cuz I needed something cheap to play. 4 Hours into it and it is the most laggy, glitchy and boring game I have ever played. And it doesn't help that I get disc read errors every 30 mins.

I also can't stand the compressed fake surround sound in 360 games. Hopefully get uncompressed 5.1 on ps3? =)

pixelsword3203d ago

and canceling Gears of War PS3.

Pride cometh before the fall.

Raz3203d ago

Sorry - Gears of what, now? Is this an old 360 game? Sorry, I'm too busy contemplating whether to buy Heavy Rain, FFXIII, God of War III, or Battlefield BCII. I could care less even if L4D went multiplat.

Immortal3213203d ago

hate admitting that ps3 have better game than the 360.

princejb1343203d ago

i would buy it
even dou cliff messed up gears 2 with that stupid patch

lelo2play3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Games like Gears of War... every gamer would like to have in their console, and who says other wise, is a big fat liar... or have really bad taste in games.

Same thing can be said about Uncharted, God of War, Mass Effect series of games. Every gamer would like them in their console.

Chubear3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

If it comes to the PS3 library, great. If it doesn't,.. great. Either way, whatever. I know this may seem totally impossible to many 360 gamers but after the incredible exclusive experiences on the PS3, PS3 gamers don't really feel like they're missing out on much at all.

Heck, it's murder keeping up with these PS3 exclusives talk less of the multiplats. They're just too many in just too many genres.

Perhaps in the launch window of the PS3 or maybe the 1st yr you would have seen more PS3 gamers willingly open to it but now? nah. We've seen the youtube play throughs and there ain't much there to desperately want but hey, it's gamer game so if it comes to the PS3, great; if not, great. Doesn't matter one way or the other.

mal_tez923203d ago

Gears of war is a great game.

The gampleay is kind of like Uncharted, but with an annoying locked camera angle, horrible melee and no platforming. But still it is fun.

BYE3203d ago

It would have been nice if it came out with the PS3 but now it's too late.

The PS3 now has such a massive library to choose from another shooter wouldn't really stick out.

Anon19743203d ago

I love the Gears of War franchise. I'd love to be able to play it on my console of choice. I play these games on my 360, but I'm always concerned it's going to die for the 5th time in the middle of a game now that the warranty is gone. I don't plan on replacing it if it dies again, so I generally tend to buy all my games on the PS3 now. I think the last game I bought on my 360 was Fable 2, and I probably won't buy another 360 game until Alan Wake comes out. It's just not worth the risk for me. Nothing sucks more than having a library of games you can't play because your hardware is busted again.

zoonie3203d ago

Seriously wtf is wrong with a lot of you. You don't want an awesome game coming to ps3? Doesn't matter I can guess your reason why you wouldn't but I doubt they're good reasons.

BkaY3203d ago

i dont think i want it for my xbox... then why would i want it for my ps3..


inveni03203d ago

Played the first on PC...wasn't impressed. Would never play another...wouldn't even waste $5 on a rent.

nycredude3203d ago

I have a 360 also, and I have Gears 1 and 2 and I haven't finished them cause they imo are way too overrated.

captain-obvious3203d ago

why would they want GeOW when they got uncharted ?

Lord Vader3203d ago

Nah - Ps3 gamers aren't into competitve MP, just read the comments. HaLo & Gears wouldnt really fit. I rarely get a room half full of mic's on KZ or UC2 MP, Gears would be a distaster on Ps3, it's really more of a SP console.

vhero3203d ago

Funnily enough its the game I enjoyed the most on my 360 when I had one (or three however you wanna look at it) Although I only ever had the first game I loved it. One of the best online shooters I ever played and would love it on PS3 I will be truly honest about it.

Theonik3202d ago

Well i will only be speaking for myself here but...

Does the PS3 need it? No, there are enough games on the PS3 to even come close to needing 1 game.

Should the PS3 get it? Yes, the more games the better.

Would i buy it if it came on the PS3? I would never buy it. Having played GeOW1/2 i found them to be absolute crap, i expect to hate this one too.

rawmetal3202d ago

do not need gears on the ps3. the ps3 is more of a intelligent crowd than 360 where you can not just put 3 steriod indused retards in there with there only form of communication is to swear at each other and expect people to be entertained. it suits the type of tards that use xbox live perfectly so it can stay where it is.

tonsoffun3202d ago

Any PS3 owner would love to have Gears on their platform of choice. If they say otherwise, it's just rotten eggs...

Shepherd 2143202d ago

Why wouldnt you want it? Because of graphics? Because it runs on the Unreal Engine and many consider that engine to be aging, completely ignoring the rich gameplay? If Gears of War was exclusive to PS3 all along would the opinions be the same? Ive never played a TPS that had a better cover system than Gears, the only thing that is equal or better is Uncharted, but it came a year after Gears did.

Gears of War was a great game, but its sequel was a bust if your a hardcore fan of the first. Im looking forward to seeing what the fixed and changed for the third game.

If you say that you never wanted the first Gears of War for the PS3 back in 2006 when it was very impressive, then you may want to step back and examine whether that opinion is created out of bias and ignorance.

You haven't played Quantum Theory either

So everything you are saying is ironic and baseless

LMAO I saw your edit, wow you are stupid. Good thing you got rid of that.

cereal_killa3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Yes God of War rocks (the real GOW)

:nice stealth edit Muppet

Gears was great (the reason I own a 360) the sequel was good but wasn't much of an improvement from the first better lighting, different monster here and there thats it I really hope Cliffy B waits to release Gears3 on the next system take you dam time with it and bring back the greatness that the 1st one was.

mrv3213203d ago

Being banned is funny, when you get to the gamer zone you start noticing that in the open zone people aren't so serious, like in the open zone you truly find fanboys, in the open zone you find aggravate-rs.

Another silly zombie droid has gone down the list again disagreeing with every anti ps3 comment.. i feel bad for him/her/them

cyborg69713203d ago

I loved the first one never played the second one. The sniper headshots were sweet great gore. Maybe if they fix the lag for MP I would go and get another 360. If it's the same host advantage crap then no thanks.

Mo0eY3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

Played Gears 1 on PC - didn't think it was anything special
Played Gears 2 on my friend's Xbox 360. Laughed at all the glitches he taught me. Still wasn't impressed

Gears of Snore.

Chubear3203d ago (Edited 3203d ago )

PS3 gamer: Well if it did come to the PS3 that would be great but if it didn't then that's alright. No biggy.


PS3 gamer: Meh, not really. It's a good game but not something I desperately need.

360 gamer: O.O.. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! *head explodes*

PS3 gamer: Oh dear. Clean up on aisle 2 *steps over mess and walks out*

Why say no? Wouldn't a real gamer want every possible good franchise and game to come out on their system? Only a fool, fanboy, or game player (not a gamer) would no want it so.

Oh wait, I am on thw wrong site, N4G is all fanboys
