    Gears of War 3 rating in Germany 'pleasantly shocked' Epic president

    Epic Games president Mike Capps says he and the company were just as surprised as anyone else when Gears of War 3 obtained a classification in Germany.
    Last week, Gears of War 3 received an "18" rating from the German USK, making it the first Gears not to be indexed in the region.

    "I wish I could give you a list, because then I could tell you I wasn't shocked when I heard we didn't get indexed. I was very much surprised, I'll admit," Capps told us when we asked what changes Epic had made to the franchise formula to get the game rated. "To me, Gears 3 is not just more of Gears 2, but tons more. ... It doesn't immediately strike me as something easier to pass through. It's not a modified version there. We have a "no gore" filter, but we've had that for Gears. We didn't do anything special for Germany this time."

    Capps is, of course, happy that Epic can finally bring its biggest series to Germany. He told us the country was the developer's "second biggest support center for Epic products," and that Unreal Tournament was huge there. He also mentioned that several members of the company's staff at the Raleigh studio are from Germany, including their engine lead.

    So, is there any chance of Gears of War 1 and 2, perhaps in their Triple Pack format, being resubmitted for approval in Germany?

    "That's a fantastic idea." Capps said enthusiastically. "We didn't try to submit it at all. I don't think anyone thought to. We'll give it a shot."

    dear god,If Germany passed it if any country actually bans it will be in a rather interesting little pickle. Like shit I'm still wondering how the Aust board will rate it considering it looks like we're going to be fucked over for R18 games again (By one cocksucking AG) and since the Beta for some reason had an R18 nsticker labeled on it, it is going to be fun to see how Australia handles it
