Because Young Clifford wants to put a lancer in the PS3's back.

I think because the Metal Gear series has appeared on a variety of platforms in the past, some players who deviated from Nintendo over to Xbox360 feel that MGS, like Final Fantasy, could eventually come to the 360. Gears of War on the other hand, has begun its life as a Microsoft exclusive and has never been anything but this. I would like MGS4 on the 360 but I don't ever expect to see it happen.

Because it's published by Microsoft, Maybe we can see a Gears of War Sigma in the far off future.

Reasons why Gears 2 will not come to the PS3:

  • It's published by Microsoft
  • CliffyB doesn't like the PS3
  • Just, no.

Reasons why MSG4 could come to 360:
  • Konami, not Sony owns it.
  • President of Konami expresses interest.
  • 360 has a larger userbase at this point.

I'm just being realistic.

Gears is a MS only franchise, just like Halo.

Cliffy Doesnt like the Ps3

For one thing, the MGS franchise has never been  totally EXCLUSIVE to the Sony consoles (even though MGS is most commonly associated with Sony). For example, Nintendo got Twin Snakes and Xbox got MGS2: Substance. On the other hand, Epic is pretty firm about keeping Gears on the 360 and Microsoft has the paycheck to keep it that way.

Not possible. There are two many things that either directly or indirectly talk about the PS3 or other things. It's possible a METAL GEAR will come, but SOLID is impossible.

1. Cliffy said he hates the controller CONTROLLER
2. Microsoft owns the IP

It's published by Microsoft. Even if the contract is for 3 games only, Microsoft will sign a new contract to a re-license, if more than 3 games in the franchise are to be made. Microsoft would not let go of Gears.

Because Unreal Engine games have a history of running badly on the PS TRIPPLE

#21 Posted by atejas (3057 posts) -

That's another reason, it just generally doesn't work as well on the system, but Microsoft would never let Gears go, its their new Halo. So no, there is no chance of it happening. MGS on the other hand is a problem of space first I'd say, and just time in the long run, so there is a much more possible chance of it happening on the 360, its just unlikely.

Gears of War 2 is published by Microsoft. HOWEVER, Microsoft does not own the rights to the Gears franchise and Epic only has a two game deal with Microsoft. So, we could potentially see Gears 3 on the PS3.

Of course, if you haven't played Gears 1 or 2, why would you want to play 3?

#25 Posted by pause422 (6179 posts) -

Microsoft will probably just sign another several year deal after that, or buy the franchise rights after this though, because Gears 3 is 100% coming of course, and this just like halo, is one of their big boys that makes them a lot of money. They aren't going to let it go, so I would say its chances of hitting the PS3 are very nonexistent.

Yes and I'm sure you got this information directly from Epic or MS and not some analyst that just assumes that Microsoft only has a 2 game deal.

Seriously this comes up a lot and not one person can point towards conclusive evidence that it is fact, I mean wikipedia even says that the franchise is owned by Microsoft but then Wikipedia isn't exactly a reliable source.

And, if I'm not mistaken, Mr. Kojima doesn't think the 360 could handle MGS4, and/or has an irrevocable love for the PS3

It'll never come to the PS3, but that doesn't make trying to convince jerks on Home that it will any less fun.
