I doubt it -- Despite the "overhype" machine. This game is short and only 8 players online. Once this dissapointing news is realized - people will wait for something bigger - with more players; options.

THWIP4459d ago pathetic.

MS is obviously being extremely conservative here. This game will sell that many TODAY ALONE. Hell, preorders are likely well over the 1 million mark.

you must have mental problems

Resistance will look like a Wii game compared with this beauty. COD3 will kick resistances ass even. Deal with it.

that HAS been known for some time now, yet people still are looking forward to it? this uproar about 8 online is stupid. it's based on the style of play. i guess fight night sucks because it's only 2 online. there should be like 30 boxers in the ring at the same time randomly hitting people. last man standing wins. a lot of games are short, yet still good. also judging from the reviews, once you unlock the higher difficulty, it will extend your experience and challenge.

You are a genius. Perfect analogy... FNR3 with 30 people in the ring... lol.

Try 2.5 mil on the first day by Halo2.

THWIP4459d ago should be comparing Gears to Halo, not Halo 2. Halo 2 set that mark, because of the insane fanbase from Halo. ;)
