Microsoft is sending out tokens for Gears of War and Gears 2 early.
Great news and another benefit of BC.
Especially for a Gears of War virgin like me. I only played through the tutorial of ultimate to ensure my codes. I hope the difference between GOW:U and GOW2 isn't too jarring, but I've heard they were quite graphically impressive at the time of release, so should be fine.
Its fine but just be aware there is an input lag issue for all the 360 gears using BC at the moment. I have no doubt it will be fixed with an update but for now it feels a little floaty with the controls. Great games tho and judgement is fun dont believe all the hate its a great game in its own right.
What are these tokens exactly? I will be getting the Xbox that comes with the ultimate edition for Christmas and would really like to know. :P
Its a message with tokens and under the message you click redeem code 1 or redeem code 2 so you dont even need to enter the codes. But... Sorry to say if your getting gears ultimate for xmas it will be too late. You have to have played it before dec 1st or something to get the old gears free
You have until Dec 31 to get the free games.
As long as you play Gears of War: Ultimate Edition online before December 31st then you should get the franchise codes for free. You won't get them immediately as it might take a week or two but you should definitely still receive them.
You can have my codes.Gamertag daBUSHwhaka.Got the collectors edition on all sitting there.Send me a msg
Yeah i got these tokens for gears of war 1 and gears of war 2. http://i.imgur.com/UkmLtaH Gears 3 came before days ago in my library.
Same, its because you downloaded it when it was GwG on 360. At least that's how I got 3 early.
lol, hope you used those codes before some one takes them
Yup! Got mine few hours ago :)
Just got my two Gears codes then along with the special preview member-avatar item =) No complaining here!!!
I thought Judgement was included as well?
It is. I played just before few minutes. You'll have your code if you didn't get already.
I got two codes, one for 1 and 2
Got mine. Just waiting for judgement! Does this sign you off your 360 if you play on your one? My friend uses my account on 360 for Netflix, and no one wants to be signed out on wave 50 of horde (again..)
Did you give him a nice funeral?
Not yet. He owes me money.
Nah you can play both 360 and xb1 at the same time with the same account.
he should create his own profile, you dnt need gold for apps anymore
Will I get judgement? I only got 1 and two. I already had 3 with GWG.
gears of war 2 the best one!!! hopefully it doesnt have the input lag/frame rate issue!
These games have aged xo poorly, poor graphics and laughable AI. After the gears ultimate edition, so many shortcomings came to light.
I'm getting gowu tomorrow I'll still get the codes right? What if I wait till black Friday?
if only they did this with Halo master chief collection instead of making you buy all the games, or at at least give you Halo Reach for free as a download
I'm giving away my Gears 1 and 3 if anyone wants'em. If you have any gold trials that you don't need that would be great. GT:SHINROCK
