Default CliffyB asked about Gears 2 on PC: "Never."

Joystiq follows-up on the Fable 3 port news by asking CliffyB is Gears 2 is coming to PC after all:

Quote:
So, Fable 3 is coming to PC -- and you've said in the past that Gears 2 won't come to PC. Is that still not a possibility?

It's not. Ever.
He does go on to say the outlook for PC is changing though, and hints to a possible Gears 3 port:

Quote:
I have a feeling though -- and this is nothing to say of Gears 3 on PC -- I have a feeling in the next few years, you're going to see PC gaming come to rise in the next few years.
Whether this is due to mumblings he has heard around Microsoft or simply the greater PC gaming presence Steam and MMOs have garnered is up to speculation.

Whats the point of 3 if we've never played 2? Idiots, idiots, idiots. And when sales suck they will blame piracy... not the fact they are just f'ing morons.

Hey CliffyB....I will never play Gear of war on a console. I won't. Ever.

this comment probably belongs in the other thread, but it seems bleedingly obvious that microsoft is losing the "cool" game in the PC space to the mac, and the biggest "cool" thing that the PC has over the mac is gaming. I would be exploiting this if I was Microsoft.

I would give the first game a 7... I beat it, it was okay. I heard the second one was a lot better single-player wise.

I wasn't interested because it was 3rd person view. it's a just personal thing.

They want to give us an excuse to buy a 360. ::

I hate it when series skip a platform then come back.

I really think they assume we will all play the 360 version if they don't release it on PC. I don't think the concept of "core" gamers who only play on one platform dawns on them at all.

I enjoyed gears 1 on PC, despite what some people say about it being a terrible port.

I wouldn't buy gears 3 on PC if gears 2 wasn't on PC.

It wasn't a terrible port, but they failed, when they tried to launch GFWL with it. And the whole, it's not coming even though some material leaked approach didn't help them either.

Not to mention underestimating the PC gamers, that announcing "the best" X360 game is all they have to do.
