The PS3 gets some Epic love

Gears of War 3

There are certain PS3 owners out there who like to whine about the Gears of War series. This particular band of fanboys like to point fingers and laugh at the game and its fans, hurling insults and obscenities every step of the way. In doing so, they accidentally make it undoubtedly obvious that they’re just extremely sad that the Gears series isn’t on the console they’ve chosen to go all fanboy over. It turns out that Epic Games would love to give these fanboys some Gears love, but Microsoft complicates things a bit with all the compliments, candy and sweet, delicious money they keep throwing at Epic.

“Do we wish we could take all those Killzone and Resistance fans on PS3, and get them to say ‘Gears is awesome’? Yeah, sure I’d love to ship the Gears trilogy on PlayStation,” admitted Epic president Mike Capps. “That would be fun. I want to be there; I want to be everywhere.” Then he provides the reason for that not happening: “Time and time again, when it came down to figure out what we do next with Gears, we sat down with Microsoft and they’ve given us really good, compelling reasons to work with them again.”

We’d love to know exactly what those good, compelling reasons are…
