Gears of War fans will want to tune into next month's Spike TV Video Game Awards, when something new, something Gears of War related will be shown for the first time.

Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski says the VGAs will be "showing off some new Gears of War gameplay," while also guaranteeing the following: "It's awesome. You're gonna love it. It's not what you're expecting."

Gears of War creators Epic Games are rumored to be creating an unspecified product in the Xbox 360 series that features some level of Kinect control. But since we're already expecting that, according to Cliff's rules, it must be something else. Plus, Cliff is sitting down during the Gears teaser, all but ruling out Kinect controls—but not ruling out Locust Tickers as playable pets in Kinectimals.

Bleszinski has flatly denied that Kinect controls would be included in next year's Gears of War 3.


When will we know for sure? When the Spike TV VGAs airs next month, December 11.
