Gears of War design boss Cliff Bleszinski, speaking to Das Gamer, has refused to be drawn on comparisons between Gears 2 and Resistance 2, saying the two are completely separate entities.

“When you break it down and look at each game, it’s largely apples to oranges,” he said.

The designer added, however, that he keeps a close eye on Insomniac’s output.

“I think it’s important to know what’s out there in the shooter genre on other consoles,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for Insomniac. Ted (Price) is a wonderful guy and I think they do great work.

“Everybody loves this dynasty shit where they want to see Ted and I fighting in a fountain pulling each other’s hair or something like that. Sorry, but it’s not going to happen. They’re making their own sci-fi extravaganza, as are we.”
