Cliffy B hates Bill Gates

Cliffy B eats puppies for breakfast!

... and eats puppies! Ok, those statements might be exaggerated, but Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski has been quoted as talking about porting Gears to the PS3.

So far this is just noise, and Microsoft isn't having any of it. Sources say that this is the result of the recent fights between Microsoft and Epic, mainly Epic keeps wanting to put out free content for Gears of War and Microsoft keeps wanting to charge for it.

While overall, Epic's give free shit away strategy has made them a fan favorite, but this talk of helping out "the enemy" with a port is causing some fanboys to rebel against Epic.

And this might all be a case of wanna be rockstar Cliffy B shooting off his mouth when he shouldn't have been. After all, everyone knows you don't cross Mr. Gates.

I thought Epic and Microsoft were under contract for 2 Gears of Wars. Or at least that's the word on the street. The rumors I hear are that Epic is bringing GoW 3 to PS3 and 360. I could care less if they bring it to the PS3. It's a great game and right now PS3 owners are dying for a great game.

I concur.

No chance that it goes to the PS3. I'm sure the contract with Microsoft is pretty firm and I doubt that Epic will risk breaking it. Sounds like Cliffy B is back to complaining about stuff again.

Yep, Mark Rein of Epic is doing spin control today, telling everyone that PS3 port rumors are complete bullshit. He's even e-mailing sites asking them to take any reports of the rumor down. Did we get an e-mail, Josh?

We did get an email from Mark Rein. I told him that our fan base of over 6.9 billion readers wouldn't appreciate us pulling down such an important news story.

I think your monitoring program is malfunctioning. 6 is not 6.9 billion.

It's accurate.
