In about 6 hours, the highly awaited release of "Gears of War 2" comes to stores for a midnight opening. The Microsoft Game Studio published game developed by Epic Games Inc. comes on the heels a highly successful "Gears of War" which sold more than 5 million copies. We have started seeing signs that the video game sector might not be so recession-proof, but some of the weakness may be due to the high-demand spending for this game at $59.99 or the collectible limited edition for $10.00 more. The figures are going to be hard to compare, but "Gears of War 2" has a shot at being one of the top video game releases of this year. The game already achieved Gold Status early last month.
