Amazon.com have already given an indication of when Gears of War 2 should be hitting store shelves in the US when it started taking pre-orders for the new game and set a release date of the 15th of Nov. 2008.
November seems like the time the game will come out. First game i played on my 360 was Gears of War. Who cares if it was short, I loved every second, just like Uncharted.
killzone 2 will prob come out around that time 2 lol
Uh SO? KZ1 got reviewed between 6 and 7 average Gears 1 got reviewed at 94% average Guerilla never made one great game (Killzone on PSP also only was allright with an 8 average). Epic has made many killer apps. Gears of War sold over 5 mln. copies with an installed base at that time around 10 million users. Don't even compare that overhyped KZ product of a Dutch developer that has to learn so much before it even gets close to what Epic makes. Gears 2 will chainsaw KZ2 into a bloody mess. It'll be funny to watch your face at that time!
How the f*ck does Mart always do that?
but please you really cant equate what the sales will be for gears 2 vs kz2 thorugh pre-orders and first day sales, I can't imagine. who knows sony is still looking for that 4million+ game and it wont be Kz2. gears 2 will be like halo 2 sales. and if they take some ques and make it better, if not rushed like ms rushed bungie after halo 1, gears 3 will b close to halo 3 sales.
but gears of war will sell at least a million in its 1st day
SNAP!! I really hope Sony have fined tuned their strategies when releasing Killzone 2, because anyhow it clashes with GOW2, there's going to be literally millions of dollars going straight down the drain (again). I almost think MS have planned this specifically, just to completely fuc up Killzone 2. I hope not for the sake of us TRUE sony fans, eh lads?
would be cool 2 huge titels against each other .
They are almost like Gamestop. but with Amazon once they do get close to a real date. they'll try to retract the order and pretend it wasn't there ;3
I find it funny... how when Gears came out... Sony used Kill Zone 2 to spoil Gears... and Sony fanboys kept saying that kill zone 2 was better than gears and how it looked better... who was going to say that very same game will go head to head with Gears 2.
i guess bots do have something for next year lol.....still can't pass up sonys amazing 08 line up, and i think it would be cool to see how Gow2 and KZ2 clashed, but i don't see that happening.....if gear 2 was hitting next year why didn't M$ announce a teaser or trailer at E3?
theres another e3 coming next year? ?? ?????
MS always says that they don't like to release information about games not coming out until the next year. They figure why hype a game when a ton of other good games are coming out in the current year.
GEARS 2 is going to really kick some @ss. Nov. 2008 is the best time.
if you read the article after the link it actually says the UK version will be released 30th december also look here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gea... and it shows you a release date of 30th december, but i dont understand why they would release an amazing game which could easily sell a million + copies in the UK for christmas after christmas :S so i guess i am saying i hope this is wrong, and we get it within the same week as the US :)
lol someone disagreed, well obviously the date i wrote up is correct cant disagree with that, and also with Gears of War selling over 5 million copies and still i see some people picking up a Gears game case when i go into game shops, obviously the UK is a big part of the market so i really do think in the UK alone Gears of War 2 if released in November could easily sell more then a million copies. [EDIT] lol and again, at least say who you are, or do you not have a reason to disagree except for maybe being a hater of Gears?
Well it looks like more than just a killzone 2 gow2 battle because amazon also says that God of war 3 is coming for nov. 15.
Expect Gears of war 2 at the end of the XBOX360's life cycle. Not in the middle of it.
2 years is plenty time between sequels, considering the engine and gameplay are pretty much complete to start with, except for some tweaks and improvements
GeOW will sell more obviously, but Resistance 2 will probably be the #1 PS3 game of 2008.
Resistance 1 wasn't that good, especially stacked up against today's shooters. I'm trading it in.
Metal Gear will be their big one.
the firsr resistance had no competition with other games for sales. you know how many good games coming out for ht eps3 in 2008. resistance was a shallow shooter that sold while gamers waited for lair which was a disappointment. gta4, mgs will be he biggest games of 2008 for sony.
I really hope this game does come out in 08 it will give us consumers/gamers some good company compition and every one know company compition means price cuts and price cuts mean happy us =D.
GEARS of WAR is like a half hour sitcom... seriously... it last about a half an hour...
Actually, Gears is a tad bit longer than God of War. Let me guess, God of War sucks, too? Where do they find you morons? Too bad your mom wasn't on The Pill...on or around the year 1988... Poor child.
Gears 1 remains the #1 game out. Gears 2 is highly anticipated by all, and should be even better. KZ who?
@Gitpwned..Fanboy?? For your information I played gears of war and happened to like it..for its online play..gears of war long?? what is the game too hard for you on insane to beat it in a two hour sitting?? hahaha Try beating god of war 2 in a two hour sitting on the hardest mode. We'll see what game is longer. Please dont tell me about fanboyism. Your support for a one exclusive game the year of 2008 for a 360?? please..get a life or maybe get someone to have one for you.spending your time on here talking about a random persons mom that you dont even know..very mature
Does it actually matter that KZ1 got bad points and Gears of Wars did good. First of all I can bet my balls that KZ1 was compared with Halo 1. Second of all, DMC1 was a kickass game but DMC2 was crap. You know what Im saying? This doesn't mean that Gears is going to be a bad game (i hope not) but it can. And KZ2 might be a good one. Who knows really.
