In an interview published today, President of Epic Games Mike Capps was asked several questions about the future of the Gears of War franchise. Most importantly, Capps shed some light on the franchise’s exclusivity to Microsoft.
"Epic Games President Hints at Gears of War Franchise to Stay an Xbox Exclusive" LoL at the title. It's a rumor to smash a rumor. RUMOR SMASH!!!!!! An Xbox exclusive is hinted at staying exclusive? The title is full of 'lol'.
cant see why PS3 fanboys want this when they got uncharted
More games the better thats why
Because in no PS3 game can you chainsaw people with a gun.
once again just because they are tps and use cover doesnt make them similar. They are EXTREMELY different and have nothing alike other than the 3rd person view and the use of cover.
Uncharted and Gears are two different animals. One is kind of slick and the other is kind of ferocious...
ps3 fans want gears so they can laugh at xbox fanboys for only having 1 game left in their library
The xbox is bleeding exclusives so quickly that the heads of companies have to take time out of their busy scheduals to confront rumors. lol SO SAD. http://i.imgur.com/pYk23.gi... “Time and time again, when it came down to figure out what we do next with Gears, we sat down with Microsoft and they’ve given us really good, compelling reasons to work with them again,” $$$$ whore that ass of yours Epic(even the name of the company is lame. damn.)
uncharted lol Most people would take gears any day. Uncharted is a favorite of reviewers, Gears is a favorite of the people.
@shooterexpert Really? I hear more praise from "the people" for Uncharted than I do Gears.
Just out of curiosity, why "hint"? Why not just balls out say "nah nah nah, Gears iz 4 teh xbox 4life yo!" ..not quite sure if I got the lingo down but you understand what.. I be sayin' lol... sorry :(
WTF Gears and Uncharted are totally different games. Just because they have a cover system, don't make them the same.
Gears stays exclusive.....well isnt that just dandy....*facepalm* and if it does its not hurting sony
Seriously if you played Gears 1 that is enough Gears for you. Trust me it was overated when it came out and nothing has changed. Played Gears 2 at a friends and played co-op which is pretty cool. Cole train is the reason to play single player but he is not always in every scene so you have to deal with the boring Marcus Fenix and Dom. The running is cool though I just love that and of course the chainsaw. Other than that I dont remember the plot just that the graphics were good. Utterly forgettable save for the graphics when the first game was released in 06 and honestly some tight shooting mechanics that work well for a game like ME without a jump button. ME2 is a better game in everyway save multiplayer. ME2s gameplay and story have rendered Gears obsolete.
In other news the sky is blue and the grass is green.
Lol yup pretty much
Whoa! Hold up! Has any of that ever been proven! J/k
I could care less. Generic soldiers wearing "nano" armor, and carrying big guns can be found many places -- But most predominantly in Cliffy B's wet dreams.
You know I never understood..why these guys wear all that armor, but have no helmet...just makes no sense. I hate the first Gears, but the second I liked. I got it on the cheap so I can't complain. But...the lowest score I'd give Gears 2 is a 8.5 and highest 9...maybe 9.2 Def not a 10 game. Then again a lot of games are getting that 10 spot without actually doing anything that warrants it. But seriously though, if your going to wear that heavy armor...put on a helmet, otherwise just makes the whole concept stupid.
If you played Gears 2 you would know why some Gears wear helmets and some don't.
@ Guigsy Actually even though I played at finished it I don't recall. Then again I wasn't paying much attention. Do I really need that kind of comment. You know you could have just explained to me why they do and I would have been better for it. But thanks for the comment just the same...
Well duh! Microsoft has that tiger blood and will pay whatever it takes to keep Gears on the box. Now the PS3 fanboys can go back to hating, unlike the other thread where they were all like "Oh I'd get Gears day one if it came to PS3". I mean if Microsoft spent Five Hundred Million on Kinect advertising, they would have no issue spending millions on keeping their second biggest franchise exclusive.
I'm glad the article could soothe your troubled mind.
Doesn't mean jack to me, I own all the consoles, no exclusives for me, though I prefer playing the 360. I just know Microsoft isn't stupid, they aren't going to let go of their second biggest franchise.
true that, seconding gear3 is getting such a high amount of input from ms with the dedicated sever farms they have set up across the world... ofcourse its staying exclusive.. ms aint having sony's hands on this pie.
Vanquish better anyways lol @ Gears.
im a sony guy i have to say the other article was terrible all the fanboys turning around saying oh that would be awesome gears is awesome etc was just sad. I prefer halo as a shooter on the 360 spent many hours online on that it was great fun, i bought gears and it wasnt for me. agree from me good sir
I always thought Microsoft owned the rights to the 1st 3 games so this was a no brainer?
it was the first 2 acutally.. the 3rd, MS gave the franchise a tramp stamp.. this is my b****
Epic owns the rights to the Gears franchise they have stated this several times M$ only publishes the games.
I think when home consoles are involved, Gears belongs on the 360. I honestly can't see Gears on the PS3. Handhelds though. Different story. I'm not a big handheld gamer, but if they get Gears on the NGP or even the 3DS, that alone will make me buy that handheld.
Good! It will stay where it belongs.
In the garbage?
I can see you're going to hate it when Gears 3 comes, lol.
I dont thing so, Gears is coming to PS3 soon, very soon
I find it difficult to trust someone who can't spell "think".
Deal with it
if ms was to let gears go multi i would not take their next gen console serious at all i would look at it like a wii and would be the last console i buy out the 3 even if i was to get it.. ms needs more than just halo to seperate them selves. im starting to think ms may not even come out with another console. i just dont se them being serious when it comes to exclusives
c'mon dude... just for keeping that one game u would take microsoft seriously???? u should have stop taking them seriously a long time ago... they have nothing
in a sense, if they kept it yes i would. its not just about that one game really though, its any of the remaining, very few, exclusives they have left. imo i think ms should be the ones growing their first party the most, not the ones loosing games like ME2 and shutting down studios and letting others start to get comfortable working with the ps3. i will continue to take them serious untill they completely start doing a wii thing.. contrary to ps3 fanboy beliefe, micro has plenty of ip's they just have a problem getting them done, if they are even trying to get them done. f.y.i im sure sony takes them serious... and im aware epic isnt a 1st party studio and ms is crazy for not trying to buy them and valve..
i will just say that this new fanboy thing thats become soo competitive between sony and Ms its the only thing that can save them honestly... reasonable gamers would have stop paying attention to MS a long time ago.. with soo many mistakes i dont see why u need to wait for them to make every single one of them.. if they lose gears thats it.. what else could go wrong after that? and why they needed to be push to this limit? im sure they could have avoided this if they wanted to im not calling u a fanboy but people is just too patient with them.. instead of supporting who truly seems to be investing in what we want and kinda offtopic but MS business model would totally ruin valve and the awesome games they release valve takes their time... too much fucking time .. although i will keep waiting for half life 3 if MS were to own them we would be having a half life 12 before 2020 and seriously franchises like portal would have been too risky for them im glad they dont own them.. seriously
Uh, what about BulletStorm? Either EA offered Epic a better publishing deal than MS did, or MS didn't even bother and doesn't give a crap about securing core exclusives. I wouldn't be so confident that Gears would remain exclusive.
Bulletstorm is a forgettable game full of corny gimmicks .... and tripe compare to Gears. If Gears4 doesn't come to the Ps3, then the franchise never will.
