Gears: Exclusive to 360 Now, PC Port 'Eventually'

Speaking to Team Xbox, Epic's VP and co-founder Mark Rein expanded on the possibility of a PC version of Xbox 360 mega hit, Gears of War. The short, nebulous answer: it'll happen, but not yet.

If this is PC news... why is it in the console section? hehe

If this were recent or there were a timeframe given, it might seem important.

The real question is how long before it hits store shelves?

Gears of War 2 for 360 same time as Gears of War on PC maybe?

I don't think Gears on PC was ever a matter of "if" but more a matter of "when."

And when it comes out it better have some Dx10 features and much sharper textures..In one interview I read that Mark Rein loves Dx 10 for it will be easy to implement super high res textures :)

most of all let it be a good game not a total console port that will be a pain to play because of the controls and so

We already know that UE3 is designed to take advantage of DX10, so it wouldn't suprise me if Gears uses DX10 for improved performance.

If halo is any indication, we'll get some unique weapon and a few maps; graphics will remain relatively unchanged. They even got rid of the reflective effect on the assault rifle. I will hope for DX10 improvements though, and an FPS mode :D

Thats true and I really hope for more higher textures and so.
As they often said they like to push the envelope and Unreal 3 (tournament) will do that so it will be exiting to see the differens betwen the Pc vs the 360/PS3 versions :D

Hmm.

Theory:
They release the games on PC when the XBox sequel is released in hope that people will buy the console to play the sequel.

They did this with both Halo and Halo 2.

I was truly impressed by the 2 year old graphics of Halo 1 that ran like crap on my top rig back in 2003, and I deeply look forward to play Halo 2 on DX10 even if it looks like DX8.

True... Microsoft had the worlds leading game console before they released xbox... now they managed to run their own leadership to the ground. Im glad they start to see that themselves.

I'm a PC gamer first and a console gamer second, but I don't think GoW will do good on the PC, Especially for multiplayer.

Agree on that.

Prolly PC version will need 2x times more hw power & it won't feature 'cooperative' mode, like always.

Haven't they been saying that since the game was first revealed? I seem to remember that when they were asked about this around E3 2005 time, they basically said that a PC port wasn't unlikely but that they were focusing on making the Xbox 360 game first. I figured it would get a PC port at some point, but I'm not expecting it anytime soon. Hell, if it follows the Halo/Halo 2 port progression, we won't see a Gears of War on the PC until Gears of War 2 is on the horizon for the Xbox 360.

I don't think it will need 2x more HW, UE3 is a very powerful engine if put into the right hands, I saw UE3 running perfectly 3 years ago on a 6800 Ultra :o

yes, and they already started testing it, that would explain why about 4 months ago gears of war profile showed up in nvidia driver
