I never thought I'd be someone to like a game like gears of war, I'm not an avid FPS player and the story is too shabby for me. The thing is that it's really quite fun, I really enjoy the gameplay and I think that they did a great job on gears 2, I hope gears 3 is just as good.
Microsoft has a weak line-up this year not including kinect. Iâ€™m worried and I think instead of paying millions to get a COD map pack early they should spend the money on new IPâ€™s. Loads or people have gold accounts on LIVE but they need to add new features to keep people paying, here in the UK thereâ€™s really not much and we canâ€™t even get BBC iplayer because Microsoft doesnâ€™t want silver members being able to access free streams and the BBC does. I hear Sony might give PlayStation Pro subscribers the ability to back up games online, Microsoft should look to do the same, In another 5 years we might just have phones as powerful as the PS3, a 10 year console cycle might be too long. Iâ€™ve got to say though the windows phone 7 with kinect integration tech demo really did look kinda cool.
