Who said consoles are maxed out? You said that? Okay, just give Epic Games and People Can Fly a few more months and watch their respective games blow that notion out of the water. Because according to People Can Fly founder Adrian Chmielarz, Gears of War 3 and Bulletstorm will be “proof” that there’s yet juice in the PS3 and Xbox 360 to be squeezed out.
When asked by NowGamer recently whether the current generation of consoles had already hit a ceiling, or is there more to come, he replied:
“Thereâ€™s a lot more to come,” he said. “I donâ€™t want to sound like a peddler, but hopefully both Bulletstorm and Gears 3 are going be a proof of that.”
EA Partners boss, David DeMartini said recently Bulletstorm could have “Gears-like sales”, adding “Itâ€™s (a) new IP, so letâ€™s hang that around its shoulders if you will. But itâ€™s a great game.”
As for Epic Games, the studio’s gone completely mum on Gears 3 for now, but rest assured more details will come as the game’s release date draws nigh. The latest screens released are extremely beautiful, however. In fact if they could speak, their utterance would simply be: “buy me“.
Bulletstorm comes available on February 22nd for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, with Gears of War 3 seeing a release on April 5th on the Xbox 360.
