1UP preview: Gears of War PC looks sharper and lasts longer

"Remember Chris Rock at the 2005 Oscars, right? The comedian and his camera crew go to an L.A. Magic Johnson Theater and ask, what's your favorite movie this year? Everyone agrees it's either Alien vs. Predator or The Chronicles of Riddick." Producer Rod Fergusson underscores the populist idea: "We weren't necessarily working to conceal every rough edge from game critics. It's always about what resonates with the audience you're trying to reach." Whether or not Tinseltown tastemakers argue the other way around -- that those movies are more like videogames -- Gears of War is an interactive Jerry Bruckheimer flick. As the Xbox 360's fastest-selling game, it's triumphed at the "box office" to boot.

I think we all knew it would, didnt we? It was announced that it would have added content (not that I'm happy about it, but I knew it already) and it only stands to make sense that someone who spent $1,000+ on thier gaming PC rig would manage better graphical output than the 360, no?

Marceles4064d ago

Oh no, I can hear the fanboy comments now. "They should make this DLC for 360 users as well. Nice way for MS and Epic to short change the loyal 360 fans. Oh and from these screenshots, the 360 version still looks better."

So I guess you'll just get them start by providing the key topics for them to flame about right?

but PS3 fans still acnnot play it even 1 year after that while i can play madden @60fps while ps3 fans play it @30fps and EAT MY PORTS

Marceles4064d ago

It's nothing they haven't thought and I haven't heard from them already

SofaKingReetodded4064d ago (Edited 4064d ago )

does this have to do with PS3 or its fans??

my god you xbots are pathetic.

btw how's it feel to have THE DEFINITIVE VERSION of your FLAGSHIP TITLE on something other than a crapbox??

bwahahahahahahahahahahhahahah hahaha

my pc runs circles around the 360, between that and the PS3 I have absolutely no heavenly reason to buy that abortion of a console.

gman764064d ago

Don't you think that someone who owns a PS3 more than likely owns a kickass PC too? And 90% of the gaming community knows that third and first person shooters are better with a keyboard and mouse.

...on the 360! Wow, certainly goes to show if you have the money for a high-end gaming rig that you get to see the different on screen. My only real complaint re: the 360 version was there was no big climax. I remember the trailer where the main character dived through a window into a darkened room only to be confronted by what looked like a star lit sky when it was one of the creatures from the GOW universe. Nothing like that in the 360 version of the game. When you did come across the creature in mention it ended up being a wuss!

Bring on GOW2!!!!!

I remember finally finding the corpser and being psyched up for an intense battle and it was, what?, a couple of clips in the mouth and two bolts on the platform and it was toast, so unfulfulling... oh well, the game rocked overall.

Dr Pepper4064d ago

I beat the corpser in less than a minute (on insane difficulty by myself). One of the easiest bosses I have played against.

felidae4064d ago

then it would look much better ;-)

1: 15 FPS
2. Get rid of the colors, make it grey and black
3. Ai would get lost in a square room
Hey, but atleast it's 1080p.

Evil0Angel4064d ago (Edited 4064d ago )

i bet the "climax" will take cove

Close_Second4064d ago

...the PS3 could do GOW but keep your fanboyism out of it. The fact of the matter is that the PS3 still has no killer AAA games which is the only real difference between the two system at present.

Bnet3434064d ago

you need 512 MB of unified RAM, according to Epic. And MS own the IP so yeah.Back on topic, if it wasn't faster I'd laugh, this game came out a year ago on Xbox 360. I'll stop playing Gears as soon as Halo 3 comes out.
