Gears Patch Before Christmas

"The first update we do will be some housekeeping to take care of a few things we need to adjust. We hope to have that in the pipeline before too long,". "Unfortunately the certification group at Microsoft shuts down relatively early in December so we’re racing against the clock to try to get it finished and certified for release through the Xbox Live update system." Rein also confirmed that the patch would sort out the bug that results in a squished image on non-widescreen VGA monitors. "We’re also fixing a few minor problems and making a few small changes and improvements," he added. "I don’t want to go into too many details because we have not finalized the update but once we know what made it in, and passed certification, we’ll put some news up on our forum which I’m sure will start other passionate threads about what we have/have not gotten around to so far. There is more to come for this game in the future." Rein also revisited the recurring rumours that Gears will make it to PC some day. "There’s nothing to announce at this time. We’ve said all along that, at some point in the future, we could adapt Gears of Wars for PC," he said. "Based on past experience we’ve learned that it takes approximately five years for an [operating system] to fully take hold among the gaming population. "So unless it takes us five years to bring Gears of War to Windows, we certainly expect to keep supporting Windows XP users."
