epic edition is an epic fail IMHO.....

Wish they would start coming out with better items for the C.E.

Finally, an unboxing video without a sweaty, overweight, and/or obnoxious guy.

It seems strange that the statue would be of Thrashball Cole, when Gears of War is about soldiers and action. I would have expected Marcus and Dom, weapons raised, side by side. Something that presents action and confrontation. Thrashball just seems so indistinct towards representation of the game.

Seriously, if you had that statue out, people wouldn't get the reference. You'd have to explain Gears of War, then explain that it's a shooter game, and then that Cole's a character in it, and that he once played a sport called Thrashball. If it were a statue like the one Halo: Reach had, all you needed to say is that, "these are the characters from Halo: Reach."


Agreed, if that is the one in the epic edition it is the dumbest thing they could have done. Perhaps they are making a "collection" of figures to be sold separately but not the one in the epic edition (hopefully).

I hope they have a nice collection of figures from the game at some point. The Halo ones are so cool... I'd like to get a set of Gears ones. I freaking love this series of games...

Epic edition so far looks like it's not worth it

Since this Gears of War published by Microsoft game studios and not Gears of War published by Atlus it's safe to say this will probably end up like the Reach Legendary edition.

If they were smart, they would just include a bad ass Gears of War 360 controller with the epic edition. Like a blood red color with the COG symbol where the Xbox button is or something like that. Now that would be epic and worth the price.


Id prefer a controller over a statue/figure of either marcus or cole. If thats the only difference between LE and EE, im downgrading my pre order because id rather have 70 dollars than a dust magnet. Hopefully the announcement is soon, like before LA noire comes out!

Would love a controller, and I'd probably pay MSRP (or close to it) through Amazon for some great Gears swag. Can't wait for the goodies announcement.

Yeah, I can't wait either. I'm guessing they'll announce it right around the time the beta ends to give their players something to look forward to. Hopefully it's high quality.

I pre-ordered the Epic Edition with hopes that we would get another replica weapon. Anything less and i'm downgrading for sure.

I have the standard edition pre-ordered from Amazon to take advantage of the $20 credit, but do have my eye on the other editions. I too, would be disappointed if the epic edition includes a custom figure. I like the controller idea!

You would think game publishers would learn their lesson and realize these stupid statues are useless and they don't sell. They just end up being marked down because the boxes are obnoxiously large and take up valuable retail space. God forbid they actually include something practical that will see usage.

Amazon is taking pre-orders for it now, but there aren't many details on the item page.

Where did you get your avatar.


It was on the gamestop gears 3 page that showed the beta tester medal you get in the beta. Not the regular game pages, but some special gears 3 page that showed different stuff.

Holy good grief, this epic edition looks awesome! I'm looking forward to the game, no doubt, but the content of the epic edition is just way too cool, even for the $150 price tag. It's loaded with tangible and virtual goodies. Cannot wait!

Another paper weight, some crazy medal and some pieces of paper for $150. I'll stick to my standard with amazon credit.

That link isn't working anymore, oddly. I think this is the thread (http://forums.epicga...ad.php?t=795206).

I'm not liking all of this pre-order DLC being showcased while the game is still months from being released. I would have preferred more weapon and player skins as unlocks for kills, wins, or something game related.

And Adam Fenix has the Beta Tester emblems on his knees and shoulder armor. I wonder what the significance of that symbol is.

I dont really like TDM. Reason is half the time we get down to the last 5 lives, i die right when we hit that so i cant respawn. Im also the one that usually has the least deaths. So im sitting dead with 6 kills and 3 deaths while someone who is 1-10 gets to play in the final moments.

O man I have tons of Walmart money. I hope that the skin is great for them. Waitng to hear about what they'll be before I order EPIC!!

I gotta say though, I don't see ANY preorder bonus for Epic edition on Amazon. They still valid? Don't tell me they wouldn't do the 20 bucks and Savage Kantus for actualy giving them MORE money

Will this tack on to previous pre-orders? I already put my order in place for Amazon, can't undo & redo if I still want the release-date shipping.

Yes. Just like the LA Noire preorerder deal. If you preorder ahead of time you will get what they offer and if they change it you should get what they change it to also. Some people who preordered LA Noire got a $25 Gift Card because it was first $10 and they changed it to $15 and they got both. Hope this helps.

thanks for the peace of mind

me too, but i dont think they do that normally. 10-20 credit for 60 dollar games, limited editions dont get that offer.
