Gears of War On The PS3?

The prognosticator we’ve all come to know and tolerate, Michael Pachter, is at it again. In the latest edition of his ill-named “Pach-Attack” segment on Gametrailers.com, he answers the question on whether we will ever see any of the Xbox 360 exclusive titles ever jump over to the PS3. Give it a watch below.

Money, of course, is the driving factor behind most decisions of exclusivity. This generation has seen a lot of money change hands in the name of exclusivity, or the lack of it. Microsoft paid out 50 million to Rockstar to get some exclusive GTAIV DLC. The Gears of War and Mass Effect franchises have done very well for all parties involved due to being exclusive to the 360.

Gears of War

But, would CliffyB ever bring Marcus and the gang over to Sony’s black box? Personally, I think Gears of War 3 will remain exclusive to the Xbox 360. It makes sense to finish the trilogy where it started. Meanwhile, Bulletstorm is confirmed to be on the Xbox and PlayStation. Let’s not forget that Epic also showed the PS3 love with Unreal Tournament III, so we know they aren’t married to Steve Ballmer.

Personally, I would like to see Epic do something like the God of War Collection and throw the first two Gears titles on a blu-ray disc for the PS3. That’s the only way I see them bringing the horde to the PlayStation.

What do you think? If you only have a PS3, do you secretly wish you could chainsaw dudes in Gears?

  • Is not Cliff Bleszinski’s call to bring it to PS3 is Tim Sweeney and Mark Rein the shot callers. And is coming is just a matter of legal exclusivity time.

    Game series coming soon to PS3:
    Gears of War
    Mass Effect
    Left 4 Dead

  • True about Cliff, but I’m sure he has some say.

    Left 4 Dead would do very well on the PS3 I think.

  • Ummm, MGS hold the rights to the Gears of War franchise.

    It’ll never happen.

    Just like Halo Reach on the PS3 will never happen. lol

    • Tell that to Mr Pachter! lol!

      News Flash;

      Epic owns the rights to all things Gears of War, not Microsoft.

        I dont know if this would or would not happen . but the two titles on blu ray would make perfect sense. too bad Micro sucks does not have BD drives on the 360. much love to both consoles though.

    Uh, with Left 4 Dead, it’s Valve just not wanting to program for the PS3. They don’t like how programing for it works, which is why they out sourced the PS3 version of Orange Box and they did not like that version which is why they did not make a PS3 version for Left 4 Dead 1 and 2.

  • ……

    It’s not Epic’s call. Microsoft would be the ones who made the final decision.

    Would Cliffy and Epic like to bring Gears to the PS3? They’ve talked about it before and mentioned they strongly considered it.

    But, since MS is paying the bills for Gears… there’s very little to no chance they are going to let one of their exclusive IPs go play on the competitions system.

  • Notice the little thing to the left of epic that says Microsoft Game Studios?
    That should be your first clue to a never gonna happen……

    I wish they would put gears of war 1 2 and 3 on the ps3 I would buy them

    • Feral

      I would even wait a year for gears of war 1 2 and 3 to come out on the ps3. that would be sweet if they came out with a collectors pack 3 in 1 for 90 dollors I would buy it for the ps3.

      • FERAL

        let’s face it the reason you wanna be on xbox 360 is just to play gears of war and halo thats all I use my xbox 360 for.i am a ps3 man now
