@T.Rexington

I think the "GOTY EDITION" is not possible because GeoW3 doesnt have any GOTY award.

T.Rexington posted 25/03/2012, 07:32
Wow, I knew this game had hit 6 million units, but it's close to 6.5. If the boost from the triple pack keeps doing it's job, GoW2 could very well hit 7 million units. MS should release a GotY edition for Gears 3 with all the DLC included. That would make help drive retail sales and I think Gears 2 is proof of that.

The legs are actually great, don't forget about the sales from the triple pack which includes Gears 1&2. Altogether Gears 2 has sold 6.37m and Gears 1 has sold 6.17m.

wow so resistance 3 and gears of war 3 are coming out around the same time just like the original ones did at launch. I wonder how resistance will do against this. if any 3rd person shooter on ps3 can match this its for sure uncharted 3. or maybe even twisted metal.

By potential, I meant Gears 3. The potential to make the next installment a brilliant game. I hope Epic takes their time and doesn't rush another sequel out before the holidays. I would honestly like to see it released in 2011. Here's to hoping!

How can a shooter thats over a year old have amazing potential? Epic seems about finished with DLC support. I really don't expect to see much happening to the game any more.

Monges79 posted 04/01/2010, 04:38
This game has amazing potential. It is one of the best games I have ever played. The story is great, and the story is one of the best in video game history. I seriously stand behind that statement. The huge and glaring flaw is the online experience. I hope Gears 3 fixes these issues and doesn't "utilize" Natal controls. I love this game aside from the online experience. The books are also great. Epics only problem is if they fuck up the next installement.

Better campaign then the first, better graphics, multiplayer has it's flaws. The malee is broken and feels like you have to hit B 5 times to get it to work. Not really but you get what I'm saying. A lot of unfair battle exchanges. The better your connection the better you will do. where in other games, such as call of duty, this don't play a role.

I have a real love/hate thing going on with this game. Great graphics, awesome campaign and fun, addicting gameplay. But the online Multiplayer is a broken pile of steaming shit that is more frustrating than anything. I think the first game was better overall. Love Horde.
