Gears Of War: 10-Year Plan?

At New York Comic Con 2009 this past weekend, Gears of War writer Joshua Ortega gave some tiny hints at where the series will be going in upcoming years at a panel dedicated to the game.  When asked whether there would be a prequel to the events of Emergence Day, Ortega gave the following answer:

"You will not be disappointed in the next ten years," Ortega said. "It's a ten-year plan. Gears is long-term. The lancer is the new lightsaber."

Another question that came up during the panel was about whether there would be more single-player Gears of War downloadable content.  To this, Ortega gave this rather typical, enticing answer:

"Keep watching," Ortega said. "You won't be disappointed."

Are you looking forward to seeing more Gears of War content on the radar?

Looks great! I've always been wondering why companies don't make the BIOS more user friendly. Now I need an MSI mainboard to use it on. :)

Luigi did you have speakers plugged in when testing it? If so you will have heard the annoying noise it makes when you click back :D

This seems quite similar to Asus Express gate, which is an internet and email program built on a very light linux core which allows booting in 5 secs. Not quite the same, but i think we will start to see a lot of these GUIs that are a bit easier on the eye on boot.

Yup, its certainly a step in the right direction. The layout in EFI makes it much easier for clocking etc, with all the options nicely laid out.

I would hope EFI supports XFI as a lot of the high end MSI boards come with XFI based cards:o.

that looks sweet!
i always get a headache from the oldskool bios blue and white...
this is really user friendly it seems :D

only downside is that it only is for those three MSI boards, would be better if it was also for the I7 based boards was.

An X58 EFI board is in the works apparently :)

There are a bunch of "non-establishment" efis out there for doing some stuff that are pushing to work on every make of mobo.

To this point they've been working to install the firmware to a usb device, like a flash drive, that can be attached to an internal usb header - and turns ur 'pc' into whatever the device wants the software to think it is.

I know a particular one that is claiming to be on sale, but I only know of a few confirmed deliveries. What it did is turned the 'pc' into another particularly well known fruity personal computer, and the software couldn't tell the difference.

Interesting stuff. I still maintain people like nvidia and ati should be pushing these for full manufactured pcs with a whole internet/gaming machine with no-need for a typical OS.
