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.

    let me guess this was due to Business reasons? the same way that GOW3 got pushed back?

    Im sorry.. but this is stupid… Sony Is having a Resistance Trailer, Uncharted, most likly another 2 Sony Trailers… I will seriously be disappointed if I see a Kinect reveal that ISNT a Hardcore Title…

    You guys really suck.

    This reminds me of when you postponed the Halo ODST reveal after having a countdown for E3… WOW!

    I thought it would be best to let you guys know now, before you sat through the entire show and said ‘WTF where is my GOW3.’ I hate being the bearer of bad news, but sometimes it happens.

    I think the real question here is – who cares about the VGAs?

    Major Nelson: I kind of respect you a lot… except for the fact that I missed Code Friday yesterday. And I do understand that it is your job and that you find no pleasure on telling us this bad news. So here it goes: Thank you for doing such a hard job and taking the flame.

    Maybe you can clear something major. geoff said there would be 360 announcements at VGA. As in plural. Is there any reason for 360 owners to watch now?

    The question here is … WHY ??? What happened?

    This is a good reason not to announce, tease, and hype an announcement, and just announce it when you/they/the involved parties are actually ready to do it. Hype be damned. I like surprises anyway.

    I don’t really care either way. Sure I’ll play gears 3 when it comes out, but does it matter if they make an announcement now or later on? I bet most you will end up playing it some way or another. You know what really sucked? was the story in Black Ops, but that usually what you get when you start buying into the hype.

    @Van Faulk – Maybe Mass Effect 3? Oh wait no… This game is multiplatform now lol! I just hope the 360 stuff is not just some crappy retarded Kinect games.

    This is grave news, everyone in forums is hyping the vast PS3 library (even though i dont care much for it) and saying 360 has nothing in 2011 and zero exclusives

    Also dismissing Kinect and XBLA games

    Just stating the general climate in forums, which may or may not mean anything much, but gives me a dissapointment every time i visit them

    I think it is very bad to not have announcements at all, when PS3 has so many exclusives announced and many more planned for VGA

    I am making a XBLA game myself in XNA, and i really hate to see 360 bashed like that in forums, just takes away much of my exitement making my game and is rather bad phycology

    Anyway, 360 is my best system by far and i plan to buy far more games in 2011 than any other system, if only it had more news on some exclusives, so morale returns🙂

    wow a whole lot of whining for a show that doesn’t really make a damn bit of difference. Odds are if you are posting here you have the internet. When there is an announcement you’ll be able to see it. GearsViking said on his twitter that it was Microsoft’s decision and not Epics to delay the announcement so odds are they are waiting for a bigger venue or for a more polished build to show. Besides, Sony can have all the announcements they want. Won’t make their games suck any less… So in other words quit whining just because you can’t see a 30 second spot for a game that is, more than likely, a year away…

    Frankly it is not about Gears, i just want to see anything, like some news for Codename Kingdoms, or videos of the Kinect titles from Japan, anything will do for me, just something, than nothing, that is all i would ever ask, a glimpse of the future, does not have to be Gears, anything will do🙂

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

    Hmm, there are a lot of tweets about getting ready for CES and an announcement that the GoW3 news delayed. I wonder if the two are correlated? If so, could this be a push to have more games “stuff” at CES?

    I really wonder whats wrong with you guys? First the delay and now this. Cliffy once again stands their as a liar. I think Epic Games will go the Bungie and Bizarre Creations way and Jump Out.
