Spong Writes: Mark Rein, VP of Epic Games, has responded to what he calls a "negative rational (sic)" for Gears of War 2 sitting in second behind Halo 3 in the Xbox Live rankings.
This came in response to a poster over on the official Epic forums who said, "XBL stats are up and gears is in second already. this means less cash and actual decline in sales now and in the future".
Rein essentially pointed out that... well, Halo 3 is Halo 3 and everyone should just learn to deal. "Wow, didn't take long for somebody to turn Halo's huge popularity into some sort of negative rational for Gears2 but you'd have to apply that same negative rational to every single game on Xbox Live as well", Rein said.
