Epic Games are sorry but the plans they had to have unlocks in Gears of War 3 come from their past releases like Shadow Complex won't be happening.

The studio "can't read" all they need to from their past catalogue on Xbox 360. It's to do with Xbox Live data restrictions. Previous Gears titles will still unlock.

Cliff Bleszinski has revealed they won't be including a 'theater' mode in Gears of War 3, and no more taking in-game shots of the action to share.

It was "really great for the super hardcore" but few others used it and time is a factor. These features are "probably not going to happen" unfortunately.
