The 360 will finish second in sales behind the Wii in 2010. Don't let 2009 fool you with the PS3 getting the edge over the 360, but Microsoft had no games. It was a just a filler year because they were holding out until 2010. This will be the PS3's strongest year yet, but it still wont be enough.

Only time will tell, I suppose.  If I had more time, I'd consider picking up one of the 360 arcades that I've seen on sale recently for $99, but I can't even get through the PS3 games that I already have, and we hardly touch the Wii, so there's so point right now.  One thing I know is that both PS3 and 360 owners should be thrilled with the large list of quality games coming out this year.

The Wii's 2010 will be its best yet by far, as well. It's a crazy year for all home consoles, I suppose. Add to that some great PC games (most notably, Starcraft II), and it becomes clear one cannot possibly enjoy everything within this year... I certainly can't, anyway.

I'm kinda disappointed with the initial news (as great as that vid was), I wonder what his "face melting" news turns out to be.

As much as I love Gears, I hope they're working on something new. One every 2 years is kind of pushing it, I much prefer the 3 year cycles.

Imagine if Halo Reach, Gears 3 and Natal all release this fall, that would have to be the best lineup ever right there! not sure it will happen though.

Epic lead designer and director of Gears of War series. It means the first announcement of Gears of War 3. A huge meltdown if Gears of War 3 is a multi-platform title. Microsoft had secured only exclusive rights to the first two Gears of War games. Gears of War 3 could be heading for the PS3 as well as the 360. Possibly late 2010 or a 2011 release.

Gears of War 3 will have stiff opposition when it is released. In 2006 and 2008 the first two Gears of War faced two WW2 Cod games made by Treyarch who are considered not in the same league as Infinity Ward in regards to making games. COD 3 and COD:WaW IMO were average FPS games.

Epic's decision is to release Gears of War 3 against Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 3 in 2011 or take on the mighty Bungie with Halo:Reach in 2010. Either way it will be a tougher battle to win. Making the best shooter game of the year means a lot to the game developers.

Halo:Reach being launched in the same year as Gears of War 3 would adversely impact the sales of both games.

"megaton news" could be referring to a multiplat GeoW3. Interesting.

That wouldn't make much sense though, would it?

I imagine most people following CliffyB's announcements would be 360 fans, as both Gears and Shadow Complex are exclusive to the machine.

edit: Forget what I said. Wasn't really thinking.

"megaton facemelting"


Very interesting...

Hopefully it's not this, because my face has not melted:

Milling about the room after Apple’s presentation Wednesday was Mark Rein (pictured), vice president of Unreal Engine maker Epic Games. He said his company would seek to bring “the big-boy console gaming experience” to iPad, which he gushed over after getting some demo time.

I wonder though, is Gears 3 a 'face-melting megaton'? Now, don't take this backwards, I'm a heavy Gears fan. But I mean, this sounds like something more, something REALLY big! If it is Gears 3, I wonder when it would release. I can't see releasing a Gears and a Halo in the same holiday period as a good move, especially with the likes of Call of Duty 7 being present as well.

I guess we'll find out soon enough.


Umm, wasn't this known to just be the Gears of War characters in Lost Planet 2 thing??

This tweet was Jan 25, and that "announcement" was Jan 26. Am I missing something???

If not, maybe it is Gears 3 at X10? That would be amazing, but I doubt it. And if it is announced, it will probably just be a worthless teaser trailer that reveals nothing but a logo, though it would still be huge news.

Wow Sony is in trouble if Gears and Halo come the same year LOL. 360 will outsell PS3 2-1.

It would be funny if Gears 3 is multiplatform, then suddenly the game would be "cool" again, whereas now it is looked on as trash due to being X360 exclusive.
