Gears of War Series Surpasses 19 Million Sales

IGN - Epic Games has revealed the lifetime sales for the Gears of War series -- the 19 million copies sold span three releases since November 2006. In its first week alone, Gears of War 3 sold 3 million, while Gears of War 2 garnered 2 million sales in its first weekend. Not bad. (Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, PC, Xbox 360)

Anyway, Hammerburst fans, Epic has brought back the original Hammerburst and you can now get the headshot with the new one XD

Edit: Twosouls, how old is that franchise? You should posted numbers for something like UC or Starhawk...

Hmmm, I'm having trouble with that link. Is it directly from Sony? How many is it? I'm sure whatver it is, it's well deserved because it's a great franchise. Does it include the sales of the Vita's version?

@ WrAiTh Sp3cTr3

You shouldn't be having trouble with the link, still works dandy. Quoted from the article: "The exact figure given by Sony was “over 17,320,000″ as of April 12, 2012. The series has seen main installments to date on PS3 – Drake’s Fortune in 2007, Among Thieves in 2009 and Drake’s Deception in 2011 – as well as Vita spin-off Golden Abyss earlier this year."

@ Knight_Crawler

These are comments sections for us to respond to each other. Gladly, that has been the case for a long time. So when someone says something, and I reply to them, it shouldn't be such a remarkable surprise. He said something, I replied to it.

Might not be absolutely on topic, but it's a reply to a reply.

I have never owned a 360, but I played Gears on my brothers Xbox, they are really good games.

Wouldn't 20 million have been....more appropriate.
