UGH! I cant decide whether to get the console or not <_<. My phat is already almost 2 years old, and im a sucker for special edition consoles. I guess after factoring out the game and second controller (Both of which i had been planning to get), it'd only be about 290-300$. (Not counting whatever i get for trading in all of my old accessories/system)

What are you talking about. I had to redo the title because the way the link is typed it says 15 Hours of Cutscenes. 15 HOURS? Lol.

I'm iffy on whether to get the 80 version or the 60 version. I preordered 80 today, but might cancel it for the regular.

As long as it has at least 4 times as much gameplay in the story.

I hope the people excited for more Gears cutscenes aren't the ones that were complaining about Metal Gear Solid 4's copious amount of cutscenes. 8-)

But yes. I enjoy cutscenes but there better be plenty of gameplay to go with it. (MGS4 in that regard was a let down).

Traded in my slim 360 250gb yesterday just to reserve the Gears 3 console. I've never owned a limited edition console so I thought being a huge Gears fan, I went for the console. I had to, two controllers, the games, some goodies, and turning on that bad boy just to hear the Gears of War theme, Fuck YEAH! I need 160 left to pay it off. I be on the PS3 more often until Sept. 20th hits.

I loved MGS4 cutscenes! I thought it added so much to the other-wise short and monotonous campaigns of it's time and here lately for that matter. MGS4 was amazing!

I hope Epic does the same with GOW3, this has been one of the best campaigns of all time!!! And I know they're gonna wrap-it-up with a HUGE amount of whipcream and cherries!!!

An hour and a half of cut-scenes? Makes me wonder how many discs it will be. Gears 2 was a great game, but the story was laughably bad.

Ahhh good news for me. I called TRU for series 6 of the gears figures and he only said they had Skorge, Kantus, and Cog Soldier. So i went to buy those, and found one Mauler hiding behind some other tall toy boxes, like someone was trying to hide it. So glad i seen that in the corner of my eye!

I also saw 1 Zeus figure from the god of war series, but none of the others. Oh well.


how much was the cog soldier?

I wouldn't get enough if I traded in my Elite 360 with a 250 gb HDD would I? I really want to buy the GOW3 360.

I'm going to call Gamestop and see how much I can get for it.

they will rip the hell out of your ass! you old system may bring in around $75 HDD another $25.. so you will be about a 1/4th of the way there. opp 4got about tax well you can give up the 2nd controller that you have that's about $10. better off to sell it on CL and save up and order on amazon. no Tax.

Did you not turn on your 360 at all the other day. Yes walmart is doing pre-orders and yes just like amazon you get a $20 egift card. but its only on the SD. and you get the Bonus exclusive Savage Grenadier Elite.

Im just going to stick with the Epic Edition. Nothing else. I would take the extra money you would spend on the console and use it towards other games like Assassins Creed Revelations and Battlefield 3. That or just save it. I added it up and the Epic Edition is $150, Console is $400, Cleaver is $100, and Lancer is $100. That is $750 + Tax. Give or take a few dollars after that is all done. OUCH!


I feel ya! I'm doing the Epic Edition and BOTH Retro Lancers - the normal U.S. version and the GOLD Exclusive U.K. version. That's enough for me - if the console looked better I would get it too...

You being a CAG and all, why in the hell would you trade in your console!? Seriously, you could make 4x more selling it through Craigslist.

Yeah pretty much TRU is where i buy mine. I think ive read they might sell them at suncoast or FYE maybe it was? But TRU is your best bet, or an online store like amazon, bigbadtoystore, and others. But they usually run a little higher than retail+shipping which is why i get them at TRU if i can.

Just wanted to let everyone know this.

If you pre-order Gears 3 Standard at Walmart, the $20 e-gift card will be mailed to your email address within 2 hours after your payment clears. If you go to Amazon, they won't let you have the $20 gift card until the game ships. BOO! I'd recommend Wal-Mart cuz you can use the $20 GC to pre-order another game like Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3! I used mine on Skyrim :whee:
