First Edge reports that it's heard from a trusted source that Gears of War 3 will be released on April 8, 2011 - the game to be teased in trailer form only weeks from now - and now 1UP says it's heard the game will be going up against PS3 exclusive first-person shooter, Killzone 3.

While not pinpointing a release date, 1UP reports: "We've heard that the next Killzone game, Killzone 3, is scheduled for a release in the same time frame as Gears of War 3 next year."

The two gritty action titles would certainly make for an exciting Easter, with Marcus Fenix going up against Thomas 'Sev' Sevchenko.

You know what neither of these franchises are particularly exciting to me at the moment so can I be indifferent to both without being a raving Nintendo fanboy?

KZ3 id like to see some co op a more innovative story, and of course some gorgeous visuals. @karl/Ninjutsu you guys really cant be serious,i think why you argue so much is due to the fact that your to much alike(in a gaming sort of way) but its really none of my business is it :p

Killzone 3 and Gears 3 would be pretty awesome, love Gears and enjoying KZ2 (currently playing atm), be interesting to see how they can improve with the 2 and a half years dev time they would have had since 2 shipped.

I love it when you instantly think that when one person dislikes an xbox 360 exclusive game over a PS3 exclusive game that it makes them a fanboy. You always go to your little fanboy hovel and pull this crap out. Grow up.

It would only be a competition if they were both multi-platform games. But they're not so this so called "rivalry" is really naive and based on stupid sales statistics.

Killzone 3, co-op co-op co-op!

would love to see them take a few lessons on the story front rather then generic ard blokes wipes out helghast.

I can see quite a twist from the way they ended the 2nd game tho.

Gears I'll reserve comments till I have finished the second.

It's one of those times when everyone will be slagging the other one off out of ignorance and jelousy - as I truely believe that both games will be the mutts nutts!

If that situation does arise, I think all videogame sites which take user comments should just shut down for a few weeks (months). It won't be pretty...

KZ2 was a decent game good graphically but didn't offer much else to what's already on the market in my opinion but still good. I'll be interested to see how the third will turn out one thing I'll guarantee is the visuals will be amazing.

I think irony is definately an under used tool in humour, well done for using it. TU
