Why does Epic keep Gears of War a Xbox 360 exclusive?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why does Epic keep Gears of War a Xbox 360 exclusive?

I think Gears has been so successful because it has remained an exclusive. It helped the 360 and the Xbox brand as a whole establish itself this generation. Microsoft REALLY pushed it as their own and developed a strong fanbase accordingly.

Because of this, I doubt it'll ever be a multiplatform franchise.

IP is owned by Epic but MS is a publisher of Gears of War series keeping part of the rights to this IP just like it is with Mass Effect.

What he said I think you can also put Halo and PGR in the same category.

Its Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 not exactly the same game.  Also Ninja Gaiden goes back to the NES and the arcades and never was a MS exclusive.

You didn't prove anything wrong really I say it again Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is not the same game as Ninja Gaiden 2 on the 360.  Also the Ninja Gaiden franchise existed long before MS entered the gaming industry.  GoW, Halo and PGR wouldn't exist withouth the original X-box and the 360.

So there u go then they could just easily make Mass effect sigma or somthing....



So why is it surprising that Xbox games stay exclusive but there's no talk of why God of War 3 can't go to 360 either. Anyways, both are "GoW" :)



Currently loving my Wii x2, Xbox 360 Pro & Xbox 360 Arcade, and Final Fantasy 7 Advent Children Limited "Cloud Black" 160GB PS3

GAMEFLY & GOOZEX FTW

I highly doubt that since MS signed a deal with Bioware to keep Mass Effect exculsive to the 360 when it comes to consoles before they got bought by EA and I highly doubt that EA wants to get sued by MS.  Ninja Gainden on the other hand was never exclusive to MS the IP always belonged to Tecmo.



1. Gears 1 and 2 are on 360, and have sold VERY well on 360.

2. The Gears fanbase, is primarily on the 360.

3. Epic and Microsoft have a good business relationship with MS willing to publish the game.
