Gears of War 3: Video shows game running on PS3

The Gears Of War franchise is almost synonymous with "Xbox". Even before Microsoft acquired the franchise, it was already exclusive to Xbox. The game came to PCs later but in the world of consoles, it remained exclusive to Xbox. But recently a very interesting footage of Gears Of War 3 running on a Playstation 3 was posted.

Epic Games then confirmed that the studio never considered launching for Playstation 3, it was just testing Unreal Engine 3 at the time. Check out the video below:

"This footage is a by-product of Epic's internal Unreal Engine 3 testing process, which used Gears and Unreal Tournament, and was never part of any real PS3 product work," Epic told Kotaku.

A curious fact watching the gameplay, is that we can see that the game was not very well polished, it seemed that if it had been released, it would not have run on the Sony machine, although the game always performed well on the Xbox 360.
