OXCGN reminds Aussie gamers that we get Gears 2 earlier than most of the world as midnight tonight brings in November 7th sooner due to world time differences:
"Rivaling the media spectacle and fan anticipation of a blockbuster movie's opening weekend, the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system is set to launch its exclusive title, 'Gears of War 2' this Friday, Nov. 7. Many fans and critics around the world are predicting that 'Gears of War 2' available only on Xbox 360, will be the biggest gaming blockbuster of summer 2008.
In addition, all copies of the game come with an Xbox LIVE token to download the Flashback Map Pack as a bonus. The Flashback Map Pack will be available immediately at launch and consists of five popular maps from the original 'Gears of War' including Canals, Gridlock, Mansion, Subway and Tyro Station. Each map has been specially updated with new graphics for 'Gears of War 2'."
