Gears of War Triple Pack hits retail on Feb. 15

A previously rumored bundle containing the first two Gears of War games is now official and headed to retail, several months before the debut of Gears of War 3. The Gears of War Triple Pack includes the brotastic original game and its sequel, along with the Gears of War 2: All Fronts Pack. On top of the 19 multiplayer maps in All Fronts, it has Marcus and Dom playing dress-up to get into the biggest Locust party of the year in the single-player DLC, "Road to Ruin."

The story is too old to be commented.

a game like gears of war would be in everybody's collection by now so not sure if this is going to help much. they should have prolly added the beta of 3 or something

RedRedSuitSDF2499d ago

They are adding the beta for 3. So I've heard.

@Ksense
Well Gears 1 and 2 each sold less than 8 million and there's over 40 million 360s out there, so there are a lot of people who don't have the games.

likedamaster2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

The game's not for everyone. Still did excellent numbers for a shooter of this type.

ReBurn2499d ago

I didn't buy either the first or the second, so if the price is right I might consider getting this.

If Epic would get off their @ss an release the PC version on console I would triple dip that puppy.

sp1deynut2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Gears 1 on PC was a MS experiment...and it failed miserably. They have no intentions of making that mistake again...same goes for Halo.

EDIT: @ EVO...

Yeah...that's what it was. They added a couple DX10 effects, and a new level...and it took them an entire YEAR for THAT? NO. MS knew something extra would be needed to entice PC gamers to try a "new" IP, that was actually a year old...so EPIC added some sparkle to it. It didn't sell NEAR what the 360 did, and overall, PC gamers expressed a collective "Meh" over it. So, no more Gears for PC.

EVO-OM3GA2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Gears 1 on PC wasnt an experiment Gears 1 on PC was EPIC finishing the game. The 360 Version was not the complete game.

@sp1deynut

Dude honestly read up on it 2years back, Gears 1 on the 360 was not finished they had to release it early because of MS, the PC version is the finished version of the game

Ares84PS32499d ago

Or maybe release the trilogy on the PS3. That would be pretty cool.

Kon2499d ago

That would never happen. Not in a million years.

EVO-OM3GA2499d ago

Hey Kon didnt you see the sign

*DO NOT FEED THE TROLL*

Infernostew2499d ago

Epic's contract with MS is up after Gears 3 so unless they made another deal for the Gears series, you never know...

@EVO-OM3GA

I'm not trolling.

Just because I like Gears of War and I happend to only own a PS3 and would like to see it on that platform doesn't mean I'm trolling.

I did not say anything negative about the game nor did I say anything negative about the 360.

Also, as far as I know Gears of War franchise is owned by EPIC not MS. Or am I wrong?
Kids these days.....

EVO-OM3GA2499d ago

Ok you only own a PS3, well I use to only own a 360 and i said to myself you know what I wanna get Versus and KH3 and Zone of Enders 3 when the release so rather than wait I went out and got a PS3 and I currently own over 10 exclusives yes I might rarely play my PS3 but never once have I said Oh I wish Uncharted was on the XBOX or KillZone.

If you wanna play the game Buy the console!

Ares84PS32499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

I'm sorry, I will not buy a 360. I rather buy games if I have $200 in my pocket. I can wait it's not a problem.

I'm a patient man. If it comes great, if it doesn't than oh well.

I played the first on on my PC anyways.

Oh and by the way, nothing what you said justifies you calling me a troll.

multipayer2499d ago

I hope a part of epic still wants their games to be top of the line, because that's just not going to happen vs the lineup of pc games that look next gen this year.

Also, I've played alot of Gears of War on PC and honestly I think there is more human players on it than Unreal Tournament 3.....

AJ Hartley2499d ago

the game maybe owned by epic just like bungie owned halo but microsoft have the rights of the game as the contract will state so if epic made a game for ps3 it would not be gears just like the talk of bungie doing a game for ps3 its not halo related as MS own the rights.

Infernostew2499d ago

That didn't stop ninja gaiden 1 & 2 from being on ps3. Also MS don't own the Gears IP. I mean it's highly unlikely that we'll ever see a Gears game on ps3 but crazier things have happened.

EVO-OM3GA2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

I have Gears 1 I sold my Gears 2, But I will pick up this double pack i hope they have all the DLC

Raven_Nomad2499d ago

Nice deal, I know quite a few people will be interested in this. They have done a lot to fix Gears 2 online recently, I might pick it up just to have in my collection.

On a side note, The Gears games while owned by Epic have a agreement with Microsoft, much like the one with Bioware and Mass Effect 1, which can never be released on another console. So the Gears franchise much like Halo is Microsoft based. Also, Epic and Cliffy B are huge Microsoft fans. Doubt they'd ever want to burn that bridge.

If you are wanting to play Gears bad enough, pretty much everyone can afford a 360, I mean refurbished ones are around $99 and then this set is $30. Cant beat it.
