Weekend Confirmed 78 - Gears of War 3, TGS '11

By Xav de Matos, Sep 16, 2011 12:00pm PDT

Weekend Confirmed and the 8-4 Podcast have merged into one during the Tokyo Game Show once again! Garnett Lee and the crew at 8-4, Ltd.--behind such games as Shadow of the Damned--discuss their experience in Japan during TGS 2011. Then, Jeff Cannata and Xav de Matos take over from sunny, southern California and talk about Gears of War 3, the nefarious pricing structure of Crimson Alliance, and a handful of other games before ending it all with a few Twitter questions. The US segment was so quick that the WC Crew didn't even have time for Finishing Moves!

  • Will the Vita reach psp #'s hell yes!

    More and more I see the future of gaming taking shape in the form of these new handheld expierence's. As the gap between what they can do and what consoles can do closes, why bother being stuck to the TV.

    The WiiU and Vita are deffinetely the starting points for this, neither are the full step. Both are half steps trying to keep it viable to sell 2 platforms. The WiiU tablet can not go and play games away from the console, and the vita needs a functioning console to stream to the TV. Marry these 2 platforms and that is where the future of gaming most deffinetely is.
