Epic Games has stated that it cannot see a time that Gears Of War will be playable on PlayStation 3 "for the foreseeable future".
ps3 should get all gears trilogy since 360 has got most of ps3 exclusive already
That won't happen, unlike Sony MS funds Gears (with advertising etc) and can afford to keep it exclusive. Sony can't afford to keep 3rd party exclusive titles since they have too many first party studios to fund and just don't make as much profit as MS. Thats why they lost every major franchise from the PS2 era and are even losing some in this gen too (like Demon Souls and the all but confirmed Agent and FFvsXIII) @belal Jack Tretton himself stated that Agent likely won't be exclusive anymore in an interview on gametrailers. If its coming from him I would say its 99% likely that it WILL be coming to other platforms. Plus I never said confirmed I said "all but confirmed"
Your ignorance is amazing, Agent is still exclusive (Until Confirmed Otherwise), Demon Souls is still exclusive, FFvs13 is still Exclusive (Until Confirmed Otherwise). Even after losing a few Exclusive Sony still pack an Exclusive Punch like non other, The competition is miles behind Sony. On Topic, i would love to see all the games to come on PS3, i have played and beaten Gears 2 & found it to be quite enjoyable (Sure Was A Little Boring At Times), but then which game isn't. =]
Gears 3 is the most exiting GFX i've seen on consoles this year and it is allways a blast to play. Seems like PS3 is maxad out. Uncharted 3 seems like Uncharted 2.5 Forza 4 is better than GT5...what a shame for Sony. They are no leaders anymore.
Agent probably isn't a PS3 exclusive anymore. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... And unless Sony is directly funding Versus XIII, that game is going to be released on the X360 as well. So better prepare yourself.
I always thought Versus XIII would stay exclusive cos of Tetsuya Nomura? I think I read somewhere that he was a PS3 fanboy himself? Eh, hope it stays exclusive.
. As long as M$ is publishing the games, they will NEVER be a part of any other platform BUT this is where things get interesting. Epic had said that Gears 2 would be the last Gears game until the " new " consoles launch and then M$ decided to extend this gen with the 360 S and Kinect and backing up the Redmond Brinks truck to Epic to make the Gears 3 game. Now Epic has said that this is definitely the last Gears game this gen...SOooooo... There is every chance to believe that whatever game Gears or new IP that Epic comes up with will be multi-platform like Bulletstorm. Epic owns the Gears franchise, not M$. Recently ( last GDC ) Epic showed the Samaritan tech demo running on Nvidia silicon. It has been widely reported the next Xbox will be using AMD and ATI so it will be as profitable as 360 and no issues with backwards compatibility....stick with me here... With Epic making Bulletstorm a multi-plat and Epic using a different chip manufacture to show off new technology, I think there is every reason to believe that Gears 3 will be the last " exclusive " game that Epic will make on 360. It's crazy to think how much money they are losing when Gears could potentially be the biggest franchise across all 4 platforms like PS3, 360, Wii and PC. Actually, you could add all the various tablets that are starting to pop up as well as handhelds. @Gus...Naughty Dog is a Sony R&D company and it is OWNED by Sony...apples and oranges. Epic is third party so other than a signed exclusive contract, their IP's could go anywhere and like Insomniac and Bungie...they will. Exclusives are a thing of the past and that is why M$ made a big mistake not announcing a new console but my tin foil hat has something to say about that...but that's another story for another time. Btw...Ziro is right, unless Sony drops major money, Agent, like L.A Noire is now a multi-plat. Jack said " he doesn't think it's exclusive anymore "...coming from Jack Tretton himself says it all.
@ziro Ohh yeah where's your proof that AGENT and VERSUS is multiplatform? NONE you just pulled that out of your wet dreams. Demon souls multiplat? where? show me the 360 version of demon souls. again pulled out of your wet dream.... You say sony cant afford to keep 3rd party exclusive? lets count how many 3rd part exclusive MS LOST shall we? *Mass effect 2 *Bioshock *star ocean 4 *Xcom *Ninja gaiden *Xcom *GTA episodes shall I keep on going? or you finally got how ignorant and clueless you are? FINALLY I just dont understand you sheeps if you really wanted to play these exclusives why don't you just fucking buy a ps3 instead of crying every E3,TGS,GC or every chance you get how "OHHH (insert ps3 exclusive) is going to xbawx just wait" for god sakes how long have you been claiming that to happen specially in MGS4 and versus case? 6 years and counting? PATHETIC MUCH? LOL @ the disagrees can't take facts I see....
@lovesony: Sony maxed out...are you kidding. I think your thinking of the 360 Sony have plenty more ladders to climb. Oh and Uncharted 2.5 LOL
@Zir0 - Jack Tretton didn't state that Agent won't be exclusive, he said that it was something that you should ask Rockstar.
@Kungfue: "You say sony cant afford to keep 3rd party exclusive? lets count how many 3rd part exclusive MS LOST shall we? " Now list the ones Sony lost this gen from last please. Will be a good laugh :D
@ Kungfue Sony lost FF13 GTA IV Assassin's Creed. These Franchises are HUGE. And not to forget, Hideo Kojima's future games are going to be multi-platform. The concept of third-party exclusive developers is slowly beginning to fade. Games like The First Templar and The Witcher 2 have small budgets, and hence they are only available for the 360 and the PC. Otherwise it doesn't make sense to limit your audience.
Then the Uncharted trilogy can come to Xbox. Fair is fair.
It's not the same. Gears is 3rd party and uncharted is 1st party.
That's the funny thing with the exclusives, gears could very easily be ported to the PS3. It would take a world of pain and headaches to get any Uncharted running on a 360 though.
Agent isn't confirme multi. FFvs13 is not either, only speculations.
I think that Gears trilogy will land on Ps3 & Wii U someday.. in one disc :)
i don't need another shooter on ps3. We got plenty of shoters coming out,and if gears comes to ps3 i wouldn't buy it because it looks like every shooter,nothing innovative and new.
Really no hope to hold on to when we're on the third and final Gears game(supposedly), but who knows.
What does foreseeable future mean? 3 years, 4 years? Could this be Cliffy B saying that Gears 4 will be a launch game for the PS4
Wow....thats really surprising /s
Its a flagship franchise for M$ so why would it?
Someone else like EA or Activision could offer Epic a similar deal but without the need for the games to remain exclusive. A third party could offer Epic the exact same deal that MS offers, but that third party deal can make Epic more money in the long run with the game being released on more than one platform.
You seriously think Micro wouldn't top EA/Activision's offers?
Last I checked, MS has somehow managed to let Bioware (along with Mass Effect), Bizarre Creations, and Bungie slip away to competitors. They also didn't publish Epic's other game, Bulletstorm. What makes you so confident MS will do what it takes with Epic, when they've let major games and developers slip away?
PS3 maybe not, Vita? well, that remains to be seen.
If you want Gears so badly buy an Xbox
Got an Xbox. Got Gears 1 and 2 and getting 3. Want that Vita port though so I can get my Gears on the go. Don't be mad bro.
agreed!! if people wanna play exclusives so damn badly, buy the freaking console and stop whining!! im not for gimped games and bad ports. F&CK THAT!! p.s- i only own a ps3. i played gears of war, must say it is fun to play. no doubt about that but on average, the ps3 has more games to my liking.
Wouldn't mind having Gears on the PS3 to be honest, I've played it at friends' houses and it's quite fun.
yeah well he's upfront microsoft pays ALL the bills all they hav to do is make the games and everyone knows about GEARS OF WAR without epic having to spend a cent on adverts
MS would buy Epic before allowing it to be on the PS3.
That would require MS to buy a studio, which they don't believe in doing anymore.
Yeah that would cause a very bad investment... What I mean is look at how many games use UE3 and possibly future UE engines on both systems. Epic makes a lot of their money by licensing the engine to say Rocksteady so they can make batman on multi platforms. If MS owned Epic this would not be allowed so what would Rocksteady do? They would use another engine and epic would lose out on all that money. So would Sooooo many other games that use UE3... So their revenue would be cut in 1/4 of what it is... Bad investment to simply keep a game exclusive.
We already have Gears clone on PS3,the name is Quantom theory.....and it sucks
God he can keep gears off ps3. He only put a woman in the new one because people thought he was gay lol what he still is by the way. And uncharted 3 blows gears Away. resistance always was better than gears. The water alone in uncharted 1 to 3 smacks gears. Epic need to just go die. There games are real bad even duke nukem is better than gears @ below, this site sucks on phone typing
Uncharted blows gears? Uhhhhh....
sales wise gears win, but everything else like critics, goty awards, graphic uncharted 2 wins... so yeah uncharted 2 blows gears, best 3rd person shooter is in sony console U2 = 96 metascores over 100 goty awards exclusives without any possibility to go multi since it is a 1st party game unlike gears which is owned by epic not microsoft
360s aren't expensive. If I wanted MS's exclusives, then I'd go to the store and buy a 360, nothing preventing me from doing so.
What is the point in having gears of war on PS3? every console needs to have its own defining games otherwise there is no point in having 3 consoles in the market. btw I am a PS3 only owner and I am happy with it.
no point uncharted is the king of 3rd person shooter... who in the right mind wants to play bulky muscular marines shooting aliens, treasure hunter theme is more entertaining
Only 6 million people. Meanwhile a massive four and half million people bought the last Uncharted game. And of course no one can play both. You have to choose between them and act like some kind of wounded idiot any time the "other" game gets any attention.
Dude shut up. Uncharted is NOTHING Like Gears. They are completely different games. I love Uncharted and I love Gears. I prefer Gears, it is more gruesome then Uncharted. When you kill someone in gears, you KILL them. Not many games have such a satisfying experience as chainsawing an enemy or a gib with a shotgun. The headshots with the sniper in Gears is by far the best experience I have gotten from ANY sniper in any game ever. Why don't you actually play the game before you trash talk it.
@thegreatindonesia Yeah, u should tell that to the ps3 community because i still see people playing Gears 2 (even glitchy supposedly) more so than UC2 online. I guess people are crazy perhaps?
I don't care about gears, its not even that good.
i recently perchased a 360 to play alongside my ps3, bought gears 1 and tbh i dont see what all the fuss is about.... maybe iv just been spoiled by uncharted.. who knows? lol
Yea gears one...a game made in 2006!
That's how I felt when I bought a PS3 and put in Uncharted. The game was still great and all, but it's was nothing to write home about. Uncharted 2 was a nice improvement.
If you played Gears of War when it first came out, you wouldn't be saying what you just said. The first time I put the game in my 360, I was blown away.
Would love to see the trilogy released on PS3. And there is no reason it can't happen. Epic own the Gears ip not Microsoft. They would need to switch publishing partners and I am sure EA would jump at the chance like they did with Mass Effect.
Cliffy hates the PS3! Gears of brown 3 is not allowed on PS3. Forza Arcade 4 is not allowed on PS3. Graphically they are both decent. But i do wish these devs would stop pushing the bullshots.
gears 3 actually looks very good way better than 2 look at the gameplay. forza 4? lol looks better than forza 3 I've seen in game footage but SOME screnshots released by turn 10 are bullshots. gears 3 isn't brown though epic finally added color to the game http://n4g.com/news/783899/...
That's "Nice" talk for NEVER GONNA HAPPEN. I already knew this and it was confirmed when Gears 3 pre sold over a million copies. No way Microsoft lets that go. They have the money to keep it an exclusive. Plus they are the ones advertising and publishing it. I think if worse came to worse, why not buy out Epic? I know Cliffy would probably prefer that anyway. That way you look up Unreal Tournament, Gears and BulletStorm franchises.
I was thinking all of that too, but if it was such a sure thing that Gears was NEVER gonna come to other platforms such as PS3, wouldn't the very confident Microsoft come out with a statement saying so, surely? Anyway, I'm sure Cliffy enjoys the success he gets from the Gears franchise as it stands. Porting to a new platform is probably too much effort for him and his team. Although they have had experience on PS3 before, offering the superior PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 3, and that Bulletstorm game, so who knows...
I wud love to Gears on PS3.
We get it FFS!! your in M$'S pocket!
Microsoft has a great partnership with Epic.
you mean the own steve blezinski right ?
Who is steve blezinski?
@omi25p Design Director of epic games
You mean cliff bleszinski?
There will never be a Gears of War on PS3. Epic developed the game in conjunction with Microsoft Studios. That would be like Zelda appearing on Xbox or PS. Wish, but it will never happen.
sony should buy epic games that would be a advantage sony would than own gears of war and the unreal engine wich is highly populer by third party studios and brings allot of profit in. but its more likley that microsoft would by epic because if microft got something its money. and gears of war is a huge systemseller for xbox brand. the future will tell who going to buy epic games or maybe not.
I'm pleasantly surprised to see this comment feed hasn't turned into a fanboy war... Yet. Give it time ;-)
Never gonna happen, nor should it. Consoles NEED exclusives. Especially the 360.
Dont want it on ps3 tbh.
Time will tell... Besides Bleszinski your not the one that is going to make the decision since your not in control of Epic, Mike Capps is the boss and he said he would love to bring it over so time will tell....
