NowGamer: Microsoft has announced the release date for Gears Of War 3. Gears Of War 3 will be released on 20 September for Xbox 360, Microsoft announced today at its X11 event in San Francisco...
Sooner than I thought, but in November it would have been up against some pretty big titles: Uncharted 3 and Skyrim in particular.
Gears 3 is pretty well guaranteed to sell regardless of what it goes up against. I doubt they were too worried about the holiday competition when they picked this release date.
Oh, I agree with you but I'm also happy that the year's big games are nicely spread out now.
This is the big announcement? And its been posted twice >_>
Cool news..... UC3 and Gear3 for me......
Me too :)
count me in!
Why would UC hurt Gears sales? Last I checked those games were exclusive to each console. You just had to mention UC in a Gears article. Troll.
Has nothing to do with games not even on the platform especially games that don't even have big followings. This has to do with whatever titles they have yet to announce for this year. The holiday release was just a place holder.
Hmmm… September. That's my favourite month after July, August, February and May. And June.
That's earlier than I had expected... beats all the other main shooters that will out around then...
in sales maybe... but in metacritics uncharted will blow any other shooters out of water in my humble opinion
Hey man no ps3 exclusive get a high score even if it is one of the greatest
@elmaton98 uh... didn't UC2 get a record amount of perfect scores? (or at least pretty damn close with around 25)
Good call on the release date. November is rammed with AAA games.
GEARS OF LOL.
Sorry Mr Dyslexic. Thats Gears of War 3!! This year is going to be a cracker come Fall time :)!!
Nice, basically its Gears vs Resistance in September. Can't wait to play both
noone gives the crap about that.
Brink drops in May. That means my pants will be free of soil by the time Gears 3 is released.
..finally, Tanks of Plastic comes in. hell yeah!
I guess Forza 4 is coming out in Novemebr then.
What makes you think that? We wont know the complete picture until GDC starts and and TGS ends.
Smart move...MS doesnt want to put gears against cod because if they r released during the same month alot of gamers may have to pick one over another
I still wish it was coming out this April, but September isn't too far off.
Dont say that... Its not even summer yet loll Is that your dog? westhighland white terrier?
haha yes sir. Good eye.
my dog is a Cairn terrier, which is the same kind of dog but not white, hes yellow. The original breeder of Westies supposedly shot his favorite cairn terrier by accident while fox hunting, so he began to breed white cairns to make them easier to see.
I love Cairn Terriers. They are just like different colored Westies.
THIS. Is the surprise from Cliffy? Ok... YAAAYYYYY!
Yeah i look forward to 4 player co-op. So Nice.
....this is the "Epic" announcement?!
Well.. The announcement was made by 'Epic' studios... So, i guess anything they announce is 'Epic'
nice i can start saving $120,60 for the game 60 for live
I really hope this isnt the hyped announcement. Its still early lets give em some time.
Omg, half a year until we get a new 360 exclusive, maybe I will sell my 360 because is dusting down with no exclusive as to date this year, and that is bad for me. Exclusives for me is the prime reasons why I own PS3/360/Wii, not multiplatforms.
Yes, Gears of War 3 when I have to back to school...
