If it's true, then that's pretty awesome.
I played the original a while back and have sold it since then, but this would definitely be a nice bonus.

The original Gears of War was the reason i brought the Xbox360. Its multiplayer took skills unlike the noob freindly gears 2 & 3. Gears of War 4 has to be like Gears 1.
Walker  +   647d ago
If it's true, Judgement will be way better than Gears of War 2 and specially 3:).
Godchild1020  +   647d ago
Is it because Gears 1 was better than the other 2? I personally like Gears 2 myself, but I can understand why a lot of people would like the first one more.
Oh_Yeah  +   647d ago
I always thought 2 was the worst of the trilogy.

Gears 2 was fucking laggy eapecialy if u live outside US. The game was very noob freindly. People who first got into Gears with Gears 2 or 3 before playing Gears 1, youd get ur ass whooped i the original Gears. The original Gears of War took skills. The wallbouncing, shotguning and the sniper all took skills that a noob would cry there heart out. Gears 2 & 3 soften up so noobs can get more of a chance.

How does the inclusion of the first game have any effect on Judgement's quality?
Godchild1020  +   647d ago
I have 2 Triple A Microsoft exclusives to look forward to this year, so far.

That's a pretty cool extra
ayabrea93  +   647d ago
I've never played the original so this'll be a perfect extra
JohnApocalypse  +   647d ago
Nice
BigBoss1964  +   647d ago
I already have Gears 1 but this is good incentive to buy
Belking  +   647d ago
Awesome! Even though I already own it it's a nice addition.
Excalibur  +   647d ago
That's right, there is plenty of room left on the disk for it because of GOW:J's lack of content.
IronFistChinMi  +   647d ago
It's a digital copy...

Humor is truly lost on the internet, I was being sarcastic....
TekoIie  +   646d ago
Oh its sarcasm now? I really just thought you were trolling every Gears article that gets posted here... Oh wait -_-

@ Pekolie
Before you run your mouth why don’t you check my achievement list.
If you did you would see that I have played and completed all of the Gears games on insane.
Doing a stare and compare of mine and your achievements I see

Gears 1
Me 58% complete, you Not Played

Gears 1 (PC)
Me 60% complete, you not played.

Gears 2
Me 100% complete, you 59% complete.

Gears 3
Me 100% complete, you 95% complete.

I, my friend am not trolling Gears.
I on the other hand am VERY disappointed with Epic and the direction they are taking the franchise.
kr4tos  +   647d ago
Awesome!
Eldyraen  +   647d ago
Personally I thought the first was most "pure". I didn't really care for the introduction of sticky grenades, a bunch of super weapon pickups, etc (beam, mortar) and especially the sawed off. I really enjoyed 2/3 for campaign and coop though and both had some enjoyable multiplayer but just not quite the same (but atleast they removed active sniper downing... best thing they ever did).

I'm hopeful Judgement will be good and want to see where they take it with Baird (smart ass, sarcastic commentary and all). He was always the type that just seemed he could never keep a rank when promoted to me so Judgement sounds perfect for the name.
Tontus  +   647d ago
lol, Microsoft are now desperately trying to help this game sell. First they give away 1600 Microsoft points to those who pre-order it and now they're given Gears 1 away with it too?

There's no hype for this game at all and the pre-orders (in the US) are pathetic. It's because this game is releasing too soon after 3, changed things nobody wanted changed, different developer and it's just that same exact experience, there's nothing new at all. Also, who want's to play as Baird? He's a dick.

Gears 1 & 2 were so awesome, 3 sucked and Judgment looks awful.
Zechs34  +   647d ago
Gears 2? Awesome? Ok...

Clearly you didn't even notice the 6 major title updates which finally ATTEMPTED to make the game playable.

Worst sequel this gen. By far. My biggest disappointment, AND I bought into the hype and bought the LE.

:'(

I agree. 2 is what killed the series for me. gears 1 was one of my favorite games of all time. Then 2 came out and the MP was damn near unplayable. Never got back into the series.

Skips  +   647d ago
Wow, your second paragraph is SO damn true. I couldn't really figure out why interest in this game was so low at first. lol

Not one person I know is even remotely excited to play as Baird. And I know a lot of hardcore Gears fans. The game should've been set during the Pendulum Wars. Not some back story or whatever for some crappy character that nobody cares about.
Drian-kun  +   647d ago
OMG that's a great gift. Judgment is the precuel of Gears of War so it coincides.
MizTv  +   647d ago
I played gears1 like a freak
Then I played 2 and haven't play 1 2 or 3 since
Gears 2 I just did not like it at all
LAZL0-Panaflex  +   647d ago
I do think gears 2 graphics were cartoonier. But i think gears 3 graphics were improved but the damn environments were so drab. Gears 1 at least had buildings.
LAZL0-Panaflex  +   647d ago
All the gears were good but i didnt like the story change in part 3. The locusts went from a lab experiment going haywire to being an ancient civilization. And somewheres in gears 2 they were talking about "the female" subject displaying telekinetic abilities then somewheres else they mentioned marcus' mom disappearing and last being seen near a dark hollow. So all this time youre thinking the cog gvmt made the locust and marcus' mom is the queen and adam fenix is some mad scientist. The queen also knew marcus' name.

Getting off track. Gears 1 multiplayer was plagued with disconnects, bad host advantage, shotty, and damn chainsaws! Gears 2 was a better playing game but did have a bad lag problem for a while, but i did play alot of guardian, annex and king of the hill. Also loved river jacinto and blood drive.
Gears 3 is the best playing gears, but after playing all the call of duties, battlefield 3, medal of honor 1, uncharted 2 (not 3), and killzone 2&3 multiplayers,crysis 2,.......its hard to go back to gears after playing those.

I think gears is best left as a campaign or co op campain in my humble opinion.
HacSawJimThugin  +   647d ago
Say what you say but The Gears franchise has been one of the few gems this gen. Look at the influence horde had on every game since its inception...*coughs*...zombies , firefight, etc...yea Gears made Devs do that. I know Gears didn't invent it but the damn sure got the formula right with it. With that said, I can't wait for Judgement.
Kingdom Come  +   647d ago
I've been playing the Gears of War franchise from Day one, and say to those of who are yet to experience the franchise, this is a brilliant deal. However, it unfortunately acts as a further reminder that "Judgement" is targeted at an audience seperate from the "Gears" Community, and instead, those of who have yet to experience it.
ECM0NEY  +   647d ago
I hope this revives Gears 1 online!!!

2 was so trash online and 3 was to noob friendly
