This game doesn't need marketing, it's an established franchise. But, LBP does, and right now it's now getting any. Sad....

sack: that depends on where you live I've seen an LBP commercial probably 20 times in the last week. It's a very simple and straight to the point ad. Actually done very well.

MS always has big marketing campaigns for their "big" titles.

But out of all the games coming out on the 360 year, this is the game i am most looking forward to. Exciting time to be a gamer for sure! :)

Anyone going at "midnight" to pick up their Gears of War 2 game?

I went at midnight to pick up Halo 3 special edition and like next day my friend told me there are lots Halo 3 in store around my area.

So Gears 2 I will pick up next day...but I was very excited about waiting to midnight to pick up Halo 3 :D First experience at a midnight release :D

Can't wait for Gears 2.

Yes it will sell crazy. Yes PS3 fans it'll even outsell Little Big Planet.

its a shooter and shooters sell best on 360, but your need to bring up LBP in a 360 gears 2 article just doesnt make sense,cant you just enjoy games?

etownone3657d ago

Of course it will.... you shouldn't even put LBP in the same league as Gears. Gears is a proven blockbuster AAA 2006 GOTY, while LBP is all hype and promotion.

We'll see if the sonykiddies pony up for LBP.

felidae3657d ago

... and what exactly is your problem with LBP not selling as much as Gears 2?

have fun with Gears 2 .. i'll have fun with LBP.

you are just sad.
