Bad news for PlayStation 3 gamers who were holding out for Epic Games to bring its Gears of War 3 franchise to the Sony do-it-all box. Cliff Bleszinski or “CliffyB” as he is so often called says the third-person chainsaw-gunning series will remain an Xbox 360 exclusive for the foreseeable future. Why doesn’t the man want to bring it to more powerful PS3 console? Here’s a hint: it involves him not liking the Sony DualShock3 controller design.

Speaking with Industry Gamers, here’s what CliffyB had to say about Gears of War for the PS3:

“I would say in the foreseeable future there’s zero chances of Gears of War being on the PlayStation 3. Can we bury that now? Seriously. It’s like, we have a great deal with Microsoft, they’re a great partner…”

“It’s one of those things that would be exciting news. Hopefully DualShock would get tweaked a little bit, but anyway, enough about that.”

Another reason for no Gears on PS3? Microsoft must be paying him and Epic Games a boatload of cash to keep the series an exclusive. The next installment of Gears of War 3 comes out on Xbox 360 on September 20. PS3 owners, you’re out of luck, sorry.
