Gears of War 3 Nabs 1 Million Pre-Orders
MAY 18, 2011 • Microsoft and Epic Games announced Gears of War 3 surpassed one million worldwide pre-orders, making it the fastest pre-ordered Xbox exclusive title to reach that milestone in the history of the platform.
Impact: There is simply no question; if you are into first-person shooters you need an Xbox 360. The core base of consumers for the exclusive franchises Halo and Gears of War have been huge for Microsoft. The amazing point is this level was reached four months before the game officially launches in September. One thing that is very interesting to know is how many of the Limited ($79.99) and Epic ($149.99) editions will be sold.
