Gears of War 3: Not coming to PS3 – Confirmed at E3 2010

By Alan Ng - Jun 14, 2010

We have some disappointing news for PS3 gamers now, as Microsoft just confirmed that Gears of War 3 will remain an exclusive on the Xbox 360 console – there goes the hope that you have been clinging on to.

The very first gameplay for the game was unveiled at E3, as members from Epic took to the stage to give us the world’s first taster of the game.

It looks pretty amazing to be honest. Co-op featured heavily during the demo, and we got a look at the new cover system and a few of the new enemies that you’ll come across.

Most PS3 owners probably knew that the game wouldn’t be arriving on Sony’s console, but after the collection of rumors over the last few months – the dream was still alive for many.

Consider that dream shattered though – its Xbox 360 only. Let us know your thoughts on this – E3 keynote ongoing as we speak.

    ok for all you haters.. i dont think you realized this but i dont remember ps3 doing that well either… ps3 is doing the worse of all the next gen consoles. gears of war 3 is the most unique shooter probably ever created which is why its so successful.. ps3 has lost all creditability with the exclusive titles it released. uncharted 2 doesnt even compare to gears 1.4 million reserves and 1.4mil on the beta.. name one game on the ps3 that did that… yall mines well just get ready for your fail ps4 when it comes out cause the ps3 was absoloutly terrible

  • lil jeremy

    tjis is total bull shit cuz ive got a ps3 and i think its fucked up that gears of war will not come out 4 the ps3

  • CerberusXGOW

    I gave up on Gears when the second release did not come for the PC, the 360 over costs $640 (Sri Lanka) and it comes modified. Paying that much wasn't worth it cause I would get banned the moment I logged into XBL.
    I got myself a special edition Killzone 3 PS3 bundle two days ago, and I regret not buying the PS3 earlier, KZ was far better than Gears 1 and 2 and from the looks of it, much better than the third installment.
    I'm not surprised that Gears 3 is not going to be ported to PS3, Epic and Cliff B made their point with 2, and it would have been a mockery to all PS3 fans.

    A dying title should be played on a dying console, I'm glad Epic thought about that and made Gears 3 a 360 exclusive.

    Glad I got the PS3 :)

  • jake

    Gears of war is a horrible game anyways. The campaign for the second sucked ass. PS3 all the way!!!!!

  • George

    i thought that GOW3 wouldn't launch on ps3, but i knew there would be a console war in th comment section. everyone stick to their own console because your opinions won't affect anyone else's views

  • PSN: xLAB25x

    your all foolish. i have both systems and gears will come to ps3 ill bet u that. most likely im gunna say that ps3 will get gears 1 buy middle of next year. ps3 has confirmed party chat just not a release date. Look at mass effect for example and how long it took tgo go 2 ps3. I believe gears will come its just a matter of when for the ps3.

  • Lahcen

    the only thing i should say is that both console are good with it's accesories, the best thing to do is to have them BOTH for it's exclusives , graphics advantages, and accesories.
    for kinect haters : you're not gonna dance alone in front of you're TV you can always shares the game with family & friends :)
    For PS move haters : Playing killzone 3 (what you guys call a dildo ) is much more fun and an awesome FPS experience, don't hate ps3 owners because you cannot afford it or because, you got too much addicted to xbox360 with xbox live that you'll commit suicide if you lost xbox live or 360 try PS3 too there a lot of dirrerences.

    for me Killzone 3, Gears of war 3, God of war 3, Uncharted 2 are the best games ever made, and don't care wich one is better than the other one ^^

    • ps3lover

      What people need to know is that gears is gettin cheesey!!!! How many times do they have to kill a army of insects to not forget 1 or 2? I mean really. Gears is a good game so is halo killzone god of war and all that. The best game ever made is Litllebig Planet the xbox players r just cryen cause they want it. Thats y ps3 is the best!

    • ps3lover

      Xbox can keep gears cause Ps3 has LBP!!!!!!!

  • marz7

    multiplatform games if they keep getting ported from the 360 we will never know how much greater them games could be until xbox comes out wit there next console. i guess let bill gates pimp yall sum more developers wont be able 2 show there real talent until they stop port’n an or 360 brings out there new xbox

  • marz7

    3. microsoft got smart from a business aspect an got alot of developers an game companies to exclusive an or time limited exclusive,just like all COD limited map packs until 2012

  • marz7

    an far as games yes 360 has alot y…1. they came out 1st 2. remember when game companies thought bluray would fail over dvd hd an microsoft started a lil of that

  • marz7

    now the difference between 360 an ps3…1 360 uses a 16 or a 19x dvd drive an the ps3 uses a 2x bluray drive ok: companies make the game in 16x dvd drive then port that 2 ps3 its like psp port’n a game to ps3 the psp graphics an control will be better than the ps3 ported game

  • marz7

    this would put a end 2 it all…if these companies would stop port’n every multiplatform game from the 360 to wii an ps3 u would see the difference.

  • Juggalugalo420

    I cant believe theres a debate on which system is better. Anyone who has done there research into the hardware in the casing knows that ps3 kills 360 anytime anywhere so what theres alot more crappy games for 360 who cares? and Halo hahahahahahaha thats a game for children with no skill try Cod. Gears is great sure but not like im gonna die if its not on ps3..Ill wait for killzone 3 its all the same shit in a round about way…. besides gears has a better story!

  • both consoles

    its funny how all the people who have ps3 are complaning calling gears shit when clearly its one of the best games out and im not an xbox fanboy i have both and personaly prefer the xbox but ps3 is also good but people fight over a console chill out you fucking geeks

    • fredflop

      i agree and if it did come out on ps3 they would all be like yeh its well good but because its not they just call it not having played it

  • edddie

    I gotta hand it d only reason i have an XBOX is because Gears, but if ps3 gets gearsim switching over, je je je je.

  • ramirezr446

    OMG stop complaining GOW is a good game so stop complaining it’s all about uncharted 3 it’s going to beat GOW 3 trusts and uncharted 3 is going to be a game of the year like uncharted 2 if u would just play the game it is awsome I have played gears of war one and 2 butuncharted is way better

  • The Dude with a Ps3

    How on earth you xbox fans continue attacking Ps3 with what?? Halo and Gears of War? lol Please is that all you got? How can you beat KillZone, Resistance, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, God of War, MGS and not to mention classics like Crash Bendicoot.
    Basically Microsoft Sucks. Even Nintendo can smack Xbox to a corner.
    Xboxy sucks! 😉

  • YourFkinDmb

    I played gears when i had my 360 before i got rid of it , it was a P.O.S game.
    I wont be sad because i cant play 3. Its a joke. It would be insulting to ps3 owners if it was released for our beloved console.

    Besides we all know there wouldnt be xbox today if it wasnt for Halo.

  • gavin

    all consoles are terrible to be honest. . i tried to play gran turismo 5 on ps3. . but the graphics were so bad i had to pour napalm on my retinas

  • gaza

    wow all u hear 360 fanboys say is halo and gears give me a break how many times u gonna use that shit. the xbox have no games period how many times you all gonna play those run down games. you xbox fanboys are just as sorry as ur 360 dont hate because the 360 have reach the end of its rope and microshit gonna use that same rope to hang you'll with and take all you'll money while they at it. so man up and admit that the 360 is a failing console now thats why i sold mine and got me a ps3.

  • lolz

    Rapidkoolaid.. are your mentaly stable? Did you honestly just say Uncharted 2 has nothing on Gears of War.. You need to get your **** our of your Microsoft’s ass and go see who won game of the year… You Xbox fan boy’s are so f****d its hilarious..

    • hgijk

      gears of war2 won over 30 game of the year awards

  • chrisjordan23

    I got both of them and this is all I got to say online is free on ps3 and 360 it's not
    you get your money worth on the ps3 then on the 360 like the controllers the ps3 rechargeable
    360 not. The only thing that the 360 got on the ps3 from what i see is the cross game chat thats it. still love both 360 and ps3 tho but ps3 in my eyes is better system then anything thats come out and trust me sony will come out with big and better things then fucking Microsoft.

  • justabystander

    ya know what the funny thing all of you are forgetting to mention is that its funny the xbox 360 guys are talking about two, and the ps3 guys are talking about many, and how each system has its own exclusives but the real kicker is how many games has ps3 had to let roll over to the xbox 360 afloat? I mean come on really there have been a good dozen or so titles that were originally ps3 exclusives that microsoft cried over not having and how it was hurting there profits. just as well if you read all the comments leading up to this one its ps3 to xbox 360 two to one, so sorry xbox but it really seems like its not gonna work out for ya

  • Joe logan

    Just because a game has good graphics doesn't make it a good game. Comparing killzone to halo is a joke halo is on a whole other level than killzone. Sony tried to kill halo with killzone 1 and that didn't turn out very well with Sony. So stop bashing halo because it sells more than killzone. And yes I have a ps3 and I rather play halo reach than killzone 2

  • jan

    i understand why microsoft doesnt want halo or gears to be on ps3 but cmon why take out the pc versions they dont lose money on it and gives sony no money so why take it out by the way im largly pc and ps3 gamer. after finding out halo 3 halo reach only was on xbox i bough halo 2 for pc. i like the game not done with campaing yet.and also im glad mass effect is coming to ps3 it was one of the series that i wanted but couldnt get. but yeah gears 1 and 2 is for pc so you can atleast play those if you dont got xbox 😉

    • karl

      gears of war 2 never come out on the pc .

  • Bubba

    I have Move along with EyePet, KFR, Sports pack, Party, etc… let me say it's like a Wii and Kinect rolled together. Not EVERYTHING you do uses the "dildo" (it is squishy lol). It also uses your SOUND and hand movements. Hell, the PS Eye has been around since the PS2. Things like Aquatopia don't use remotes… like having a fish tank and you walk by and the fish dart away, wiggle your fingers near the top of the tank and make the water ripple and attract fish. Other games too. Plus Kinect is going to be sketchy since it can't track small hand movements (like pulling a trigger… hmm that remote IS handy DUH), lighting can throw it off as well as ANYONE ELSE IN THE ROOM! 3D? Is it worth it? IMO, YES! Bought a new Panasonic LED 3D and tried Wipeout and EyePet in 3D… let me just say we are SO close to a real VR experience. Images that stand 2-3 FEET off a screen, giving you a whole new depth to the game… downside is 3D is only 720p but the PS3 upscales it nicely so with a Full HD TV… never mind… go find a real store that has a 3D Demo setup and you can get a taste… most will be willing to eat noodles for a month to save up after. We also have all 3 major platforms as well… PS3 is the heart of my setup. Movies, games, internet, media streaming, PS Home, Life, etc. If it wasn't for my son playing Halo Reach all day in his room, it would never get used lol.

  • steve

    Do Dom and Marcus get married in the third installment? 😛

    • 360 money pit…..

      gays of war :-)

  • JaY_KaZaMa

    Wow cant belive how much people argue over a console you sad nerds :-S I have both 360 and ps3 and to be fair i think they both good both have differnt things about them but games on either console are great and i have to say gow is prob the best game i have ever played on but thats just my opinion. It's a shame it wont be on ps3 becasue im always on that now so look's like i will be haeding back over to the 360 for that 😛

  • JimmyJimJim123

    lol did you ever notice ps3 fans have like 10-20 games they love and xbox fans have 2 games they love? oh well who cares I have both so I play halo (not a fan to be honest) and God of War

    • hgijk

      maybe because the xbox games are games you can play for ever because they are so good, where as PS3 needs to make new games to keep their players interested

  • Gow veteran

    Gears of war 1 is simply da best game ever made

  • lucasvader

    HEY HEY HEY ps3 has MGS4 can't beat that CAN'T BEAT THAT!

  • Randomator2003

    Just wanna say for all you asses badmouthing the ps3, ive had all 3 next gens tried and tested, and am also a massive xbox fan (even though im switching back to ps3).
    and tbh, games like gears of war and halo, never ever have a chance at competing with metal gear alone, mag is another top game, what game on xbox has what is it? 150+ multiplayer? none, a few years and xbox will have nothing, and before you mention MGS: Rising, its gunna end up being the ugly duckling of the family.

  • rapidkoolaid

    haha uncharted 2, kill zone ,mag plz all of these games have nonthing on gears of war this game is going to be epic i feel sory for ps3 owners well at least you can watch us play it on youtube.

    • anybody

      u haven't try UNCHARTED 2..it better than gears..good story good coop and good multiplayer..i dont care if gear comin or not to ps3..we can play UNCHARTED 2

      • Tmaswupass

        Well i have both console but had 360 first for 2 years.ever since i bought PS3 i haven’t played anything as good as game’s on 360 the dam thing is collecting dust and i am thinking of selling it.

        Ya’ll ps3 fags keep bragging about blue ray but it’s not benefiting any games on ps3 take GOW3 4 E.G it’s on blue ray but sort as fuck.

        WTF are ppl hyped about with this fckn Uncharted peace of shyt.I have played both and the GFX it’s just shyt and don’t get me started on the AI lost 4 words

    • armageddon

      metal gear solid series only on ps3 you wont be getting that anytime soon that dumps on gow

  • aditya

    look, all ps3 owners will argue that ps3 is better, and all 360 owners will say 360's better. both are as good,so why argue. it aint gonna change the facts. so,all 360 owners can play their 360,and we'll stick with our ps3.does'nt quite matter as most probably a new console will come out next year which will beat both 360 n ps3

    • John

      i agree with you aditya who cares they are both as good

  • Maballz 'Eshari

    So what does 360 have? Halo and Gears? You already lost Mass Effect. What does PS3 have? Killzone, Uncharted, Gran Tourismo, MAG, Twisted Metal, God of War…and better graphics. Plus, while all of you 360 owners are piloting a raft down a river or jumping over hurdles with Kinect, I will be playing SOCOM 4 and Killzone 3 with Move. Have fun dancing like an idiot in front of your TV.

    • pezza2100

      lol the only ps3 exclusive i have tested which is really good is uncharted 1& 2 killzone is a massive flop after killzone And please dont try and bring graphical comparisons into an arguement because PC graphics are far superior to console graphics Fact if you can install a decent graphics card

  • mar

    ps3 can keep that little dildo crap called move and killzone 3 just like the first one wont be succesfull just another crappy game and who in the hell will buy a whole new tv just to play 3d games thats about 900dollars wasted on a tv screw pshiet im cool with ma 360

  • StuffierEye

    oh com'on you cant compare ps3 with the xbox 360 obviously the xbox is better, it have better games and GOW3 is a very good game you are just angry because your ps3 doesnt have halo or gears that are the best games of the world and well the xbox kinect is going to be the best!!!! ps3 sucks!!!

    • Obvious you haven't played a game on ps3 -.-… so you better stfu and stop talking nonsense…… I will name two games that suppasses all xbox360 game : Uncharted 2 ( not even 1 xbox360 has been able to come close to the visuals of this games ) and the second one IS GoD OF WaR 3 ( this game is purely epic)

      • CDT1971

        Not to mention MGS

    • marz7

      this would put a end 2 it all…if these companies would stop port’n every multiplatform game from the 360 to wii an ps3 u would see the difference. now the difference between 360 an ps3…1 360 uses a 16 or a 19x dvd drive an the ps3 uses a 2x bluray drive ok: companies make the game in 16x dvd drive then port that 2 ps3 its like psp port’n a game to ps3 the psp graphics an control will be better than the ps3 ported game

    • marz7

      an far as games yes 360 has alot y…1. they came out 1st 2. remember when game companies thought bluray would fail over dvd hd an microsoft started a lil of that 3. microsoft got smart from a business aspect an got alot of developers an game companies to exclusive an or time limited exclusive,just like all COD limited map packs until 2012 5. multiplatform games if they keep getting ported from the 360 we will never know how much greater them games could be until xbox comes out wit there next console 6. i guess let bill gates pimp yall sum more developers wont be able 2 show there real talent until they stop port’n an or 360 brings out there new xbox

    • Milkybar123

      Are you four years old? Its very ironic how Xbox players always come back with the argument 'well we have halo' which most players admit after the first two were absolute !£*$.

    • not telling you

      ok first of all every game for gaybox except for gears sucks and yes halo sucks while your using up your money to buy new xbox cause your old ones broke or buying online memberships or having to buy points to buy stuff im sitting back paying 20 bucks every couple of months for playstation money and im saving money with my ps3 and besides ps3 has way better graphics, the only way gaybox can get better graphics is if you buy a hdmi cord and a fucken $2000 tv while im here playing modernwarfare 2 in hd and killzone 3 in 3D, we have god of war 1,2,and 3 wich are the best games and who wants to spend over $100 to buy kinect when all you do is stand around playing gay ass kinect adventures because they dont have any shooting games for kinect yet while were here playing shooting game with the ps move and its better than standing up for 9 straight fucking hours in one spot pretending to hold a fucking gun……….if your a hardcore gamer like me and your xbox keeps breaking switch to a ps3 its got blue ray, better graphics, better games, ps3 move is cheap and worth it, you'll save a bunch of money in one year trust me i have.

  • Mike

    Killzone 2 wasn’t really for me but it was a beautiful game. Much better looking then anything on 360 I have all 3 systems.

  • gamer4life

    nah games on 360 really can't hold a candle to ps3(graphic wise) and take this from a ps3 and 360 owner…i've had my 360 for a couple years and i just got this ps3 and i see more quality in this ps3 than i have in that damn 360 which is just a money pit…if your not an unfortunate one that has to deal with RROD(which even the new ones are getting) which i haven't had….then you have to pay for that damn subscription to play online multiplayer on top of paying for over priced maps….although i wish ps3 had more titles their upcoming ones are pretty damn good… and really @blah have you even played Killzone?….if you played it and didn't like it ok….but if you haven't played it don't knock it till u try it…

    • Brent sokolowski

      1st off when you were playing nintendo 64 and all the old games that had amazing game play who cared how graphics were??? not us it was about enjoying the game last time i checked not omfg ps3 has better looks then the 360 no shit sony owns blueray.. you cant have a blue ray xbox 360 and also if you had red ring and called microsoft they fixed it for free even if you dont have a warenty…. so why do people bitch beacsue they wonder how are they going to live for 3 weeks with out a gaming console? how about go out side..

    • TheArtOfRolling

      iv got both aswell but i prefer my xbox never really have ps3 on apart from the metal gear bout but its collecting dust for now, people have different preferences and opinions and no ones ever going to agree

    • keso

      seriously it depends of what type of gamer you are.. heres how i put it.. and not in a mean way.. i play my PS3 for RPGs and single player based games and i play 360 when i want to play with my friends online. this is because ps3 does have better quality and but online is shit lots of hackers and accesability is retarded. xbox on the other hand has great multiplayer thats y i dont mind paying 50 dollars a year ( thats ****ing cheap anwyway). so my conclusion which i tell everyone who asks me what they should get is ps3 if you feel like being alone get in depth with your game ( not in a bad way of course) and 360 if your more of a multiplayer kind of guy .

    • pezza2100

      Dont even bring in graphical comparisons PS3 may have slightly better graphics than that of the xbox but there is a huge gap between a PC with a decent graphics card to a ps3 i dont think anyone can argue against this the main benefit of a console is that its simple and easy with one main priority

  • blah

    killzone lol games on the xbox 360 will forever piss all over the ps3`s

    • Jeremy

      lol killzone is not even in the same league as GOW just look at sales if playing both games won't convince you

    • Shad

      Your both RETARED!!! why do you care about sales? if your gamer. PS3 will always be better than that lame piece of cheap shit you call a system.

    • robert

      xbox is a piece of shit, ive owned every console coming from the first xbox reg nintendo atari sega g ps1 2 3 xbox360 and p3 shits all over xbox and everyother console ive played. but you can keep telling yourself xbox is better, you keep paying for every little for your xbox , ill game for free along side my far better graffics and story lines.

    • Josh

      you fn fanboy fag. i youst to like the shit box, but ive been through three of those pos.
      Im gonna buy a ps3 because it is the better of the two. Not slightly better, but extremely.
      so go f yourself you lil shit talker.

    • MarcusSoul

      Thats a joke. Haha lol. Thats actually funny. What pisses on PS3?
      "HALO"!!!!!!! No.
      "Kinect"!!!!!! No.
      "GOW"!!!!! No.
      Gamer Score? No.
      The Zune? No.

      What about the PS3.
      God Of War III!!!!! Hell yeah.
      KillZone3!!!!!!!!! Hell yeah!!!
      Infamous!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      Heavy Rain!!!! Hell Yeah.
      Metal Gear Solid 4!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      Little Big Planet!!!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      Uncharted!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      MAG!!!!!!!! Hell Yeah.!!!!!!!
      Web Browsing!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      PlayStation Home!!!!!!! Hell Yeah.
      Trophies that aren't real-but ARE!!!!!!Hell Yeah.
      PlayStationMove!!!!!!! Hell Frikin Yeah!!!!!!!

      Let me put it to you this way. The PS3 is so much better than the XBOX360
      That it would'nt even take a crap on it.

  • Luke

    who cares about gears of war 3, its outdated game. Crnt wait for killzone 3 in 3D and Move thats gona be sick 😀

    • Jon

      are you SERIOUS you PS3 fagboy

      you say who cares about Gears its an outdated game.
      i cant wait for KZ3.are you that stupid man???

      killzone is WAY more outdated then gears.
      gears started on 360 (next gen system)
      KZ started on PS2 (last gen system)

      think you moron.lol

      I own a 80GB ps3 and
      a xbox360 slim

      DONT GO BASHING GOOD GAMES
      JUST BECAUSE YOUR POOR AND CANT
      AFFORD BOTH NEXT GEN SYSTEMS LIKE ME…lol

        Dick move

      • 360 money pit…..

        galo was last gen moron!! gays of war is shite……f'kinect is overpriced i am a 360 owner wanting a PS3

    • yourgay

      3D tends to bring graphics down a lot so it's not a good idea to play it on 3D

  • Waldo

    To be honest, It's never really bothered me about not having GOW on my black box. I'm more looking forward to Crysis 2 with Move. SOCOM4 also looks rather good, so am I missing out on GOW? Nah not really, plenty good stuff this side of the fence. Much like Halo (I played 1+2 on PC) but it never really hooked me. I was pretty good, but not amazing.

    • Well once you buy gears of war 3, get ready for the rrod to go on your xbox. Then wait to buy a new xbox just to buy more internet for it. 😉

      • Brent Sokolowski

        red ring is gone on te xboxs you noob you get what you pay for and what do you pay for on ps3 for online??? nothing besides DLC that xbox gets 1st sooo whats up your ass your dual schock controller?? i think so(:
