Gears of War 3 Officially Confirmed For April 2011 76

A few days after an untimely leak on Xbox Live, Epic Games has now officially announced Gears of War 3 for next April. Details are scant (though Edge speculates on possible new gameplay features), but it will contain 4-player co-op and be an Xbox 360 exclusive. A trailer was released for the game, and designer Cliff Bleszinski had this to say: "When we released Gears of War more than three years ago, we set out to tell the world an unforgettable story of bravery and sacrifice in the face of insurmountable odds, and a year from now, players will get the chance to experience the final chapter in the story of Marcus Fenix and his companions in Delta Squad. This is definitely the biggest and most dramatic chapter yet in the Gears of War saga, and we can't wait to deliver it."

    I agree with you about the tech engine and all that, but regarding the "fps on console" issue, I somewhat agree with OP.
    It works great on console, as you say yourself, however, have you tried GoW on PC?

    It's horrible because of those exact same features.

    Don't get me wrong, I am no PC fanboi, and I got both Xbox360 and PS3 with big stereo and HD TV to enhance the experience.
    But as I've said somewhere else when this discussion came up, what works on console, doesn't necessarily work on PC.

    I prefer FPS on PC, but not if the game is specific crafted for console, like GoW is.

    ZZT? Tyrian?

    It's too bad they turned into a console developer.

The primary function of the design engineer is to make things difficult for the fabricator and impossible for the serviceman.
