Gears of War 3 PS3

You can play Gears of War 3 on a PlayStation 3. That is if you have the devkit associated with the console. After it was leaked over a year ago that Epic Games had tested getting the third iteration in Marcus Fenix's story up and running on a PS3, which was then confirmed to be real by the developer, the full game has now been released onto the internet. This marks the 10th anniversary of the data being built, with leaker PixelButts saying: "I no longer plan to release prototype game stuff after this, as this was the last one I was sitting on."

The reason the game can only run on PS3 devkits is that they contain more RAM than the systems released at retail. PixelButts (yes, really) says this version may be playable on the RPCS3 emulator in the future, but it doesn't boot beyond the title screen as of right now. The build was never designed for the public; it was instead merely a test of Unreal Engine 3 at the time.

"This is an archive of the original data built by Epic Games on May 19th 2011 for Gears of War 3 for PS3 systems. Originally created during an engine test, and leaked 10 years ago and remained unusable data while circulating between collectors and exchanging hands."
