Hey, what can I say? People love to chainsaw, curb-stomp, and all around maim each other. That's gotta be the only explanation behind Gears of War 3's startling sales numbers. With a week nearly all to itself, Epic Games and Microsoft Games Studios had no trouble selling more than 3 MILLION copies of the Gears trilogy finale.
In just five days in the United States and Europe, Gears of War 3 achieved 50% growth over Gears of War 2, outselling both previous Gears games combined. As the biggest launch of 2011 so far this year, Gears of War 3 continued its sales run into this week and is expected to top the previous Gears games in lifetime sales.
