Gears of War 2 Game of the Year Edition is happening. GameStop is now taking pre-orders for a newly packaged version of the billion-year-old shooter. Priced at $39.99, this edition’s value stems from the ten s--tloads of downloadable content thrown into the mix. The "All Fronts Collection" -- nineteen multiplayer maps and the ‘deleted scene’ campaign mission -- ships with it as (update) a redeemable code.

If you’ve been looking for a way to get into Gears of War 2 on the cheap without going the “Used” route, this seems like the best way to do it. The game is a rollercoaster of awesome and the multiplayer component isn’t too shabby if you stay away from the majority of public people (read: cheaters).

Gears 2 GOTY hits GameStop September 1st.
 
 
Personally I think that's a great deal, since the DLC itself is 20 bucks your only paying 20 for the game itself.

This is the edition I picked up, since it has been in my "Games to Get" backlog since it was released. Playing games a year late does have its benefits. I'll be getting the GOTY edition of Fallout 3 next month!

First there was Fallout 3. Then there was LittleBigPlanet. Now Gears of War 2.
 
Seriously, how many fucking GOTY editions are we gonna see? And more importantly, how many GOTY awards does a game need to warrant a GOTY edition?

Fable II, L4D, and possibly some others I'm forgetting have GOTY editions.
 
And...it clearly only needs one GOTY award from any publication.
