Gears of War and the VGA’s

 

Gears of War 3

I have just learned of a decision to postpone our planned Gears of War news from Epic Games for the Spike Video Game Awards this weekend.  I wanted to share this with you and let you know that while these are never easy decisions, we can tell you that what we have to share for the franchise in 2011 will definitely be worth the wait and we look forward to working with our partner at Spike on sharing this world premier news when it is ready.

 

 

 

 

Gears of War By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

    To people complaining about the lack of 360 exclusives for 2011, just keep one thing in mind…
    -
    IT’S NOT 2011 YET
    -
    Microsoft has never really been a company to hype their games for years on end before release. Heck, most first party 360 games aren’t even announced more then a year before release (Gears 3 would’ve been about a year before release if not for the delay). If E3 comes and goes and there have been no announcements, then you can be worried but just because nothing has been shown yet doesn’t mean Microsoft won’t have anything for 2011.

    Not really sure why you guys keep kicking Epic and us in the B@lls when it comes to Gears 3.

    I wouldn’t be surprised or shocked if the next Gears game after 3 went multi-platform and I wouldn’t blame Epic a bit.
    I’m seeing Activision/Infinity Ward all over again.

    And thanks Major, It’s gotta be hard working for M$.

    Pretty meh show. A much better improvement but the corny jokes and celebrity appearances are still holding it all back.

    Kinda wish Cliffy B. and others would’ve done a horde mode live demo or something. That would’ve been really awesome to see and would be a great replacement for any new announcement.

    I’d be lying if I said Sony isn’t looking 100x better in 2011. Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Twisted Metal, Socom 4, LittleBigPlanet 2, etc. That’s just the exclusives. Come on Microsoft! I want some big exclusives besides Gears 3! I loved Gears of War but Gears 2 was simply awful online so I expect very little from Gears 3 online.

    BTW: I can’t stand Cliffy B. What a liar.

    We’re complaining about this why exactly? I swear some of you get really antsy if you don’t have anything new to complain about.

    How long have you known Cliff Bleszinski?

    The VGAs? Oh yeah, that… thing.

    Venom,

    I think its obvious that I don’t know him on a personal basis. However, the promises he brought upon us about Gears of War 2 was full of lies. For example, he said Gears of War 2 has virtually no lag. In reality, it was laggier than Gears of War (1) by a long shot. It was unplayable most of the time. And this is coming from a huge Gears of War fan. Later articles stated that they never did ethernet tests but rather LAN tests. I wish I could find the article. For the record, I am not saying he is a bad person outside of the gaming world.

    “Not surprising, MS has stopped caring about their core audience for a while now.”

    Amen to that. Remember when Mattrick screwed over Bungie at E3 2008 by pulling their ODST announcement for a bunch of horrible “You’re in the Movies” type garbage. That was the start of the decline and now that Kinect is actually selling….

    Not good.

    I guess one good thing about this years VGA’s is that we didn’t have to hear Geoff Keighley say “world exclusive” eight thousand times

  • Grumbledock

    As long as MS doesn’t loose gears too :/
    I don’t know shat MS are doing, they got a lot of great hardcore IPs and studios, and leave them to rot or sack them :O
    What about Age of Empires (no browser clone), Freelancer, Mass Effect, Perfect Dark, Bungie etc, etc.
    Gamers made sure 360 would live, gamers can make sure it fails and MS is out by the next gen too. We need exclusive core games, not only multiformat and Kinect-stuff… ;)

    Beta release date?

  • Uzumaki15

    Well watching the announcments during the VGA’s I could care less that they pulled it, with Forza 4, ME3,and TESV they made up for it.

    Uncharted 3 gets teased, Gears announcement gets delayed. Coincidence? I think not.
