Gears of War 3 is Not Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

200°
289w ago - I don't know how many times it has to be repeated, reiterated, redundantly reinforced and repetitively reproached, but gamers really, really need to understand that despite the hype, despite the news, despite whatever they hear or read from anyone else, GOW 3 is not coming to the PS3.

The rumors have been put out there but they also need to be squashed, and [Register or Login to view links] has aptly done so.

There was a lot of talk about Gears of War 3 coming to the PlayStation 3 ever since the Gears of War 2 writer, Joshua Ortega mentioned that the Gears of War series could expand as a video game franchise for about ten years. Sony often says the same thing about the PlayStation brand, which started the rumor that Gears of War 3 was coming to the PS3.

Just like God of War - and how Sony owns the rights to it as trademarked property and that means it won't be appearing on the Xbox 360 - so the same applies to Gears of War and Microsoft ensuring that it will never appear on the PlayStation 3.

Added to this, the rumor killer above pretty much lays out why Gears 3 won't be coming to the PS3. Besides, the only way it would happen is if Microsoft forfeited...
 

Sony Almost Responds to Lackluster January NPD Results

100°
289w ago - Sony's PS3 slump continues. The high price of the PS3, coupled with a weak economy, has proven a one-two punch against Sony's current home console.

PS3 sold 203k units in North America in the month of January. While this may sound good, a look at 2008's results shows a grim trend for Sony. While both the Wii and Xbox 360 have gained momentum from 2008 to 2009, PS3 has actually dropped down.

Things may change for Sony, especially with another year of fantastic exclusives planned for the system. Peter Dille, SVP of Marketing, ignores the January NPD results entirely and instead looks towards the future.

"The PlayStation brand experienced a record year in sales in 2008 and we have every reason to believe our blockbuster line up combined with PS3's position as the best Blu-ray player and most sophisticated entertainment device out there, will continue to fuel increased marketshare and momentum into 2009.

We've truly upped the ante this year with an unmatched software lineup ahead, kickstarting with the much anticipated and platform-moving title Killzone 2 later this month. We're the only company to offer three viable platforms today and will continue to deliver a seamless and comprehensive entertainment experience to our customers for many years to come."

Sony Pledges to Reinvigorate PSP in 2009 with New Titles

100°
289w ago - Sony UK product manager Claire Backhouse has stated that significant new titles heading to the PSP this year will essentially revitalize the PSP.

Although a number of these titles are currently unannounced, Sony feels they will aid in attracting greater interest from new customers.

To quote: 'SIGNIFICANT' NEW titles are heading to the PSP this year that will revitalize the format and attract new consumers, Sony has told MCV.

Now over four years-old, the PSP has steadily established itself throughout the current generation, selling over 40 million units globally - 3.2m of them in the UK.

But software sales have been less consistent. In GfK-ChartTrack's monthly report for January, the format accounted for just 3.6 per cent of the UK software market in unit terms - a stark contrast to Japan, where 2008's biggest title was PSP game Monster Hunter.

Speaking to MCV, UK product manager Claire Backhouse said that comparable titles are on the way over here - a number of them unannounced - that can help turn around the format's current standing.
