Rumor Busting: Gears Of War 3 Won't Be Found On PS3

Despite the obvious fact that the third-party exclusive is all but dead this generation, there's always plenty of debate surrounding franchises like Gears of War.

Recently, Epic Games head man Mark Rein made a statement that caused everyone to explode in a series of "what if" discussions that focused on the possibility of the excellent action franchise going multiplatform. During this year's Tokyo Game Show, Rein said that if they were to do a third Gears installment, it would be "for the next console generation." However, these guys sometimes tend to trip over their own words and as Games Thirst pointed out (citing a Eurogamer interview), Rein admitted he misspoke and issued a clarification: the next Gears will be released within the next four to five years, and it would certainly be for this generation of consoles. The idea of a multiplatform release also seems very much out of the question as Epic has never once entertained that possibility and remain loyal to the 360 fan base. After all, it's 360 owners who have made the franchise in question so popular; at this point, it'd be like taking God of War multiplatform, and that just won't happen.

As much as I love Gears, I figure the 360 can keep this one. There are so many PS3 exclusives I want, and so many I've already played, my 360 collection has been at zero growth for a while. And when Gears 3 comes out, it'll be mine immediately, so it can stay exclusive for all I care.

What I think he meant was that even though Msft published Vampire Rain it also appeared on the Ps3 not that Msft published it on the PS3.

I think the key thing people need to remember here is that Msft only published Vampire Rain and Ninja Gaiden and that Tecmo owns Ninja Gaiden and whatever company developed Vampire Rain owns the rights to Vampire Rain, which is why those games appeared on the PS3.

Gears may be developed by Epic, but I believe Msft owns the IP not Epic, the same way Msft owns the Halo IP, which is why you won't see those games on the Ps3 -- the same way Sony owns GOW, Resistance, R&C, etc...

Would it really even matter if this franchise made the jump to multiplatform? The ps3 already has an extremely similar game like gears coming, in the form of Quantum Theory.....it's exclusive too.

Gears may be good, but exclusive wise I think we all know who's got the goods on that. They probably weren't expecting to have to make another Gears until next gen. Microsoft is short on games and long on cash, so I'm sure they said "Hey Mark we are spending all of our efforts doing Project Natal, we dont have any games right now, can we get a rush on Gears 3?, don't worry we can release Halo sequels to give you time."

developers strike again!
he has said so many times along with clify B that gears of war 3 WILL NOT! be out till the next generation of consoles.
because it will be running on unreal engine 4 and thats not due to be completed till late next year.
and here he is now saying no it will be out on the current system in 4-5 years time.
1 CAN WE PLEASE MAKE UP OUR FU***NG MIND!
2 im willing to bet my left nut that a new 360 will be out in 3 years time MAX! and within 5 years time the 360 will be dead in the water.
look how long it took M$ to ditch the original xbox.
is it just me or are developers THE pros of contradicting themselves?

Everyone already knew it wouldn't come to PS3 any time soon since is an Xbox 360 exclusive deal for the Gears of War Trilogy, maybe when the deal is over after the third game it might happen. And the comment you made about God of War III going to multiplaform was awful since is own by Sony of course it won't happen unlike Gears of War is own by Epic Games not Microsoft. And why is it that this website loves the Xbox 360 so damn much every time i come here to read one of your post i see you talking about it. Might as well change the name to PS3 and Xbox. Also it will be awesome having Gears of War on PS3 i would love to see that, to shut up every Xbot in America NYC 4 LiFe LoL. Microsoft can't keep this game. And yes PS3 has the most and the best games duh. TIMED EXCLUSIVE DEAL EXPIRES ONE DAY.

Ivan, that was painful to read. Seriously, learn some grammar.

Also, your points of view are exactly that, YOUR points of view, unless you have statistics and research to back it up, don't go on about knowing everything cos you clearly don't, and this is exactly why I trust Ben and his word cos he specifies when he is giving facts and opinions. Big difference.

Also, completely agree with Kangasfwa.
Gears is fantastic and was part of the reason I bought a 360, just like why I bought a Wii for Mario and a PS3 for God of War, Gran Turismo, Uncharted 2, etc.

I guess the game that should've been compared to Gears in terms of exclusives is Uncharted, its by Naughty Dog, not Sony studios (unless I'm wrong there) and therefore has equal chance of going multiplpat as Gears.

@FFrulez,

You're right about Gears being a second-party game; but GOW is a Santa Monica Sony game, which means it is a first-party game.

I'm sure you meant to say Resistance and Infamous were second-party games, but those IPs are Sony-owned too.

While Ivan's tone is totally uncalled for, he is technically correct about the Gears franchise. I got a 360 because i was told NG2 was published by MS, unlike NG1 that was published by the same guys who developed it, and so what happened? A year later, it came to the ps3. No one really cared at that point, and unfortunately, no one (with the exception of myself and a small following) really cared about the game to begin with. So really, there is nothing legally impossible about Gears coming to the ps3, but I think at that point, no one will really care. I mean after the success of COD4, and the let-down that the online performance of Gears2 was, it has even lost a good deal of hype amongst the xbots.

This news made me a bit sad because nothing on the PS3 plays the SAME as Gears of War.

EDIT: Guess I'll explain why, because Uncharted and Gears of War are 2 different games, that's why.

For a second there I thought you were serious on your first line.
Yes, nothing plays the same as Gears on the PS3, Gears is purely shooter, the only game that's gonna be the same as Gears is probably Quantum which is as good as a cancelled project even though I looked forward to it for the release date in June until they delay it into 2010 and now no news of it.

Gears sucks @ss dude. Uncharted is a much better 3rd person cover shooter.

Nothing plays as good as gears on the ps3? Seriously? Gears is no technical achievement, has a lame story, ugly graphics and characters and the game play stinks compared to uncharted. Yes they are different games but they fit the same catagory as they both are 3rd person cover shooters with platforming thrown in in uncharted.

Yawn...who cares. Gears is boring, ugly and over rated anyways. We don't need more Unreal games on the PS3. We need less. Xbots can keep it. They have gears, we have uncharted which is obviously a better game in every way. If Epics wants limits on what they can do by staying with a last gen method of delivery(DVD) then so be it. Lol. Don't need Queers of Bore.

Also this game is hardley MS exclusvie. My friend has both of them on his Mac.

gears is not ugly or boring or overated. i have both uncharted games and there graffics are good but in my opinion gears is a funner game to play. uncharted 2 online blows. especially compared to gears of war. if gears was on the ps3 i would dust mine off.i think it could be a better game on the ps3. also epic would probly give the new map pack out for free like they did on unreal 3.

i will have to wait to play god of war 3 thats my next ps3 game. i am buying final fantasy but for my xbox360.not the ps3.

i wasnt camparing grafics of the games i was talking about online play and gears is awsome online period. i do like the uncharted series there grafics are better than gears2 but the uncharted oniline doent even come close. and in my opion is not goog at all. i stoped playing the online 30mins after i started it. it was just stupied to me. they are 2 diffent types of games you cant campare them one is a shooter and the other is action adventure.

i have both consoles and i watched the trailers of final fantasy many times . and it looks a little better on the 360 more detail. not so dark .the ps3 version is 720p and the 360 version is at 1080. it also is going to have extra content on the 360 that the ps3 wont. check twitter they are giving away extras now .and i dont care if it has 5 differnt disks .and i dont care that microsoft has the rights to excusive content fot ff13. and for your info the grand theft auto is better on the 360. as many articles on the web stated it looks/runs/plays better on the 360. like most multiplatform games./assasigns creed for example. you need to do a little home work jawknee. dont get me wrong i love my ps3 but i buy the multi platform games for the 360. because most are devloped for that system then ported over to the ps3. but i am looking forward to god of war3 and heavey rain. cant wait for them. by the way i think the halo seris sucks.if you own a ps3 you are not missing anything. also killzone was pretty fun and looked awsome graffic wise. but to bad for it. the call of duty seris is just to much compition. even though i like kilzone no one really plays it any more.

and if gears or war came out on the ps3 it would diffently be very popular so dont kid you self. and if i didnt own a ps3 now and gears came out for it i would sell my soul to get one. 95% of my friends that play online on the 360 would dump there 360 in a heart beat if it went multi platform.

uncarted 2 is a greatlooking game but to me it doent look any better than the first one. it is funner thatn the first one to play though. sony better get some game dev. to put some games in 1080. resolutin for gods sake. i am beginning to think it just wont hadle it very well. hope im wrong about that though.
right now and in the future cod monderwarefare seris rules the online play world. and i am thatfull that it is on both systems. so themore games we have multi platform the better.

I really hate to break this to you, but there will be NOTHING in the 360 version that's not in the PS3 version. If there is, it won't be significant. Furthermore, the White Engine the game runs on was designed specifically for the PS3. The 360 work had to come later, and in no WAY is the 360 version displaying at 1080 while the PS3 version is at 720.

I haven't the slightest idea where you're getting your information, but it's ALL wrong. The bottom line is that if you have both consoles and get FFXIII for the 360, I'd have to say there's something wrong with you. Most times, it doesn't matter - multiplats are usually mostly identical - but in this case, absolutely nobody is predicting the 360 version of FFXIII to be BETTER than the PS3 version.

Sorry, but that's just absurd.

Ben, does that mean SE never had a problem developing on the PS3 when the White Engine was designed specifically for the PS3?

Then I'm really confuse because there's no Square Enix games at all on the PS3 for the moment and PS3 is already 3 years old.

@ Ben,

Don't you know every single 360 box lists the game at 1080p.

This guy kind of reminds me of the kid I saw at GameStop on Saturday as I was browsing. I overheard him talking to another customer. Actually, I heard the customer first, repeating so "You're saying Msft over Sony." The kid said something back that I can't recall, and I tried to ignore him (as I normally do).

But, then he said something I couldn't ignore; and I felt like I was back in 2006 again.

"When Sony gets any good exclusive games, then I'll give them a chance. And I own a PS3."

Like, every Xbot who is an Xbot doesn't make that same claim so they don't look like an Xbot!

Well, I was stunned; I couldn't ignore him anymore, so I interjected "Are you kidding me?"

To which he replied, "When Sony gets 10 good exclusive PS3 games I'll take them seriously."

Well, after that it wasn't pretty as I told him to stop talking out of his ass and I and another customer put him in his place, quickly listing the Ps3's good, exclusive franchises.

By the way, when I mentioned Gran Turismo, he replied, "Isn't Gran Turismo coming to the 360?"

You can't make this stupidity up. Seriously, where do they hear this crap?

@Anaconda,
After reading your post above, there's only one word to describe all that dribble above, and that one word is........"clueless"


BTW, I think you'll probably need to set up a appointment with an eye doctor, quick, fast, and in a MF'ing hurry, cause I really don't think you're seeing the big picture!!!!!

Now that you mention it Jawknee, the Gears characters look like steroid junkies.

Who's dumb a** even suggested they would make gears multi-platform? One of their biggest names? Even though i would be interested, that would just be plain silly. Thats almost like resistance or little big planet getting a 360 port just more unlikely lol. The only 360 port i had any hope for which still would probably never happen was MassEffect.

sorry to upset you but if you had both consoles you could see for your self that when you go to download the trailers of ff13 it clearly states what video resolution they are in.and info on the game. on the 360 it clearly states the trailer is in 1080 and when you go to download it on the ps3 it states it is in 720. maybe the 360 upconverts it. but it is 1080. i will callange you to a freindly wager for a dollar on that. if your up to it.

as a admin of the article and so called know it all for us ps3 gamers you would have aready know that.
i can try to take a pic of it on the 360 to show you or you can just find a 360 and download it your self. better yet buy one so you can trully compare games in the future after all you are the author here. i find it a little absurd you dont own both
do what id did play them both multible times on both systems set up with hdmi cables on a 1080 tv and you will see it does look a little shaper and better on the 360. and no mater what i will be buying it for the 360. its to big of a game for me not to pay attention to the video quaity and detail of the game. and i dont care how many disks it on. i have been swaping disks alot of times in the past on the ps2. so it not a problem at all.
you are right about multiplats are usually (mostly) identical but in this case it is not. also go to the gamespot webpage and they have a comparison of the 2. you will see that the trees and smaller detail in the backgrounds are blocky and on the 360 there not. just more detial is avail in the 360 version. well let me know on the wager
and yes i still would like to have gears come to the ps3 but it wont.

Errr ben does have both consoles. I don't need to reply to your nonsense, Ben said it best. You xbots crack me up. There's no way in hell the xbox version of ffxiii is going to be better then the ps3 version. As I said. The ps3 is the lead platform.

How stupid can you be? Just because a trailer is rendered in 1080p doesn't mean the game is in 1080p. And if you paid closer attention your able to download te 720p or 1080p trailer from the psn.

Why do I get the feeling your a pimple ridden 14 year old?

Jeez Jawknee I didn't think u were so dumb. Everyone knows that if a trailer plays in 1080p that the game will have that resolution! Honestly, this is such common knowledge.

There's very old saying...
"Ignorance is bliss"

But I'm sorry to say that in your special case, even though you're proving the former...
"NO"....you're just not even remotely blissed in any sense of the word in regards to the latter.

Actually

"Gears of War, Gears of War 2, the Crimson Omen logo, Marcus Fenix, Unreal, Epic Games and the Epic Games logo are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Epic Games, Inc., in the United States and/or elsewhere."

So as you can see Epic owns the the ip, it could go wherever they want it to.

Yeah, but Microsoft put a ton of money into the game... Cliffy isn't riding in a 100k dollar car because of Unreal 2009

i actually dont care since it will come out for pc. i basically see the 360 as useless since i have apc and can get my games there. also have a ps3 since the games that are exclusive for it never come out on pc

for you info i am 44 years old i know thats sounds pretty old in the video game world but i have be playing since before the atari. and have owned most systems i am not a xbot or a fan of any one system. but i do own a ps3 for the last 2 years great system but i am loyal to none. i think people get to hung up on a dam piece of electronics to be objective.
i like palying all the great games i can. but i read you comments and i seen a error in my post. i went and turned on my ps3 and checked out the trailer and it is the 1080 hd one. that i did compare the 360 to. good catch.
But i was thinking about what ben said about the the game being in 720. and hurried my reply to the post. and i stick by my descision, it still looks a little better on the 360. and the guys that post replys about how good the games look on the pc are correct. they are really great on a high end pc. but i dont have the funds to build a real nice gaming computer. if i did and ff13 was on it i would probley buy that for it. i mean to offend no one. this is just a opion of mine everone will have to make a jugment for them selfs. no since this started out to be about gears of war. i stick to my opion on that only. i am sure when ff13 comes around there will be plenty to talk about then.
Happy Gaming

I bought a 360 for the sole reason of playing Gears... I loved the game and it was worth the investment. I have not played GoW2 yet busy with other stuff but at some point I will pick it up. I am all for it staying as a 360 exclusive. Makes it worth owning the console.

It doesn't matter if Microsoft put money into the franchise, the simple fact is that it is not theirs(nor is it CLiffy B.'s). Will Epic take it to other platforms is anybodies guess.
