Gears of War 2 Doubles up on Success

"Microsoft announced today that Gears of War 2 has sold over 2 million copies since its release last week.

For comparison, the first Gears of War game took two weeks to hit just 1 million copies sold (which is still a lot of games). In that same time span, around 800,000 online players got 7 million achievements."

Thank God i don't know how i would have survived without knowing 7million achievements

Lets just mod UT3 and call it a new game they said

I wonder how trophies would compare to that number? "Breaking news! Over 200 trophies have now been earned worldwide." I bet over 40 gamers have collected all trophies in Resistance 2, if it has any.

Hold it until the next console? That's a bold claim, and I doubt it'll happen. Rein has already said we'll see 3 GOW games at the very least, and probably more. No reason to delay the money train now.

I wonder if Gears 3 can sell 3 Million first week?

OOG3680d ago

whos saying gears 2 wont??? game is over 2 mill and came out on it still has another day n some change

Viewtiful3680d ago

haha That would be ridiculous if it could make 3 million in just one week. That would be have to be some kind of record...then again pokemon usually sells a billion in the first two weeks.

Epic could potentially delay the game until the next Xbox launch. Microsoft would have to pay them an ungodly amount of money to do so, but the raw power that would come from a Gears game and a Halo game at launch would probably automatically win them that console war from the outset.

One can dream ;). That would be one awesome midnight launch.
