Gears Of War Franchise Has “Zero Chance” Of Coming To PS3

Gears Of War Franchise Has “Zero Chance” Of Coming To PS3

Epic Games frontman Cliffy B has decided to come out and bury the rumors of Gears Of War on Playstation.

The franchise has become extremely profitable for Microsoft and the Xbox 360 brand, but nonetheless whispers have been heard for years about Gears jumping aboard the Playstation ship. The rumors really started to heat up during GDC, when Epic Games President Mike Capps stated that he “would love” to bring Gears of War to Playstation 3.

Speaking to Industry Gamers, Cliffy B said that , while it would make for a good news story, “I would say in the foreseeable future there’s zero chances of Gears of War being on the PlayStation 3. Can we bury that now? Seriously. It’s like, we have a great deal with Microsoft, they’re a great partner…”

 

 

When asked about Capps’ contradicting statement, he replied with, “It’s one of those things that would be exciting news. Hopefully DualShock would get tweaked a little bit, but anyway, enough about that.”

For those that don’t know, Cliffy B has been trashing the Playstation’s DualShock controller, which has raised many eyebrows recently. Sony hasn’t changed their controller design in over a decade for good reason- it’s one of the best controllers ever made. He went on to bitch and moan about why the buttons are X’s and squares and generally PMS. I really can’t see a whole hell of a lot of difference between the DualShock and the 360’s controller.

While keeping the Gears franchise tied to only one console certainly limits sales, Microsoft is surely keeping Cliffy B sleeping on a bed made of money to keep it on 360.

Gears of War 3 is due to ship out on September 20th, 2011. Cliffy thanked Industry Gamers for “not being dumb” and asking him if Gears 3 is the end to the trilogy, and said in a mocking voice, “Is this the last Gears ever?”

Wow. Success has certainly not gone to this guy’s head.

  1. Hey bro I’m going to go off topic for one second to say good job with the site. Now on this topic I must say I already knew the Gears franchise would stay on the 360 and not go Multi-platform. Me and you were already talking about this. Microsoft does not have any other exclusives lined up for gamers that enjoy Hardcore gaming. So they will spend as much as they need to keep it. They should because lets face it if the GoW franchise goes Multi-platform what would be the real reason to buy an Xbox 360 besides Halo. I also must say the comment with Cliffy B saying the Dualshock 3 sucks is shameful because we know damn well he’s lying and being paid to say that. If he really felt that way why make Bulletstorm or Unreal Tournamentt 3 for PS3? As a third party developer it’s bad business to talk trash about any CONSOLE because that’s gaming developers bread and butter.

  2. The only knock i’ll give the dual shock controller is I don’t like the placement of the sticks for first person shooters. I like the off-set sticks of xbox for accuracy and feel. Other then that they’re basically the same thing. Of course for accuracy nothing is gonna beat a PC keyboard and mouse anyway.

    As far as Gears coming to the PS3, I don’t see how anyone even thought that was a possibility. It’s Microsoft’s bread and butter, like halo. That’s like holding my breath that the next Zelda is gonna be on 360.

    • That’s true, although Xbox is getting the Metal Gear Solid HD collection this fall, so you never know. Also this whole speculation started when Epic Games’ president stated that he would love to see Gears on PS3.
