How the hell is this a "Triple Pack"? It's two games.

They might as well just call it "Gears of War X3" if they want to mislead the consumer like that...

Gears 2 rang completely hollow for me, but this is definately good value for whoever hasn't yet tired themselves of Bender chainsawing underground aliens.

I wonder how many people think it will have the third one in it.

Love Gears, but like every other fan I have everything already.

enough people to make it worth it for Microsoft.  sadly.
 
Not a GoW fan myself but getting multi-chainsaw kills going online is pretty damn funny.  Everyone just standing around chainsawing each other and then wave 2 behind them chainsawing the chainsaw-ers err whatever.  Hilarious gameplay.  shotgunning in multiplayer is satisfying too.

I can't see who'll go buy this since they've been down in price for such a long time. But good if you recently got a Xbox 360.

I don't understand why this bothers people. You know it doesn't have GoW 3, who cares about idiots who can't even read the front of the box?

I like this idea. Only so I can get if for my brother and he can play these games with me. But he doesn't need Gears 1, so I should just get a GotY Gears 2. Done.

Talk about a misleading news piece. All three gears games this is NOT. This is sorta crazy, but not really that out there. Once Gears 3 comes out, your not going to see a lot of people picking up Gears 2, let alone the original. Damn good value, but this is just the kind of thing that should happen more often.

I just have a question to ask, how many discs are included in that triple pack because to my knowledge all of that content cannot be on a disc due to storage limitations.

" No one else caught on that this is exactly a copy of God of War? 3 is coming out, first and second on the same disc, both have the same acronym (GoW)... "
The did it with Halo before, as did Nintendo releasing OoT and MM before Windwaker and Metroid Prime Trilogy.

I was mainly aiming at the acronym, but w/e I knew this has been done before.

"OH, so people will accidentally but this when they're looking for Gears 3 that didn't come out on time. "

This guy's onto something. It reminds me of Band Hero.

I've had my 360 for more than 2 years now and never get around to playing these.  I guess now's the time...

Nobody caught onto that because nobody else is that petty. (I hope)

It's the same name as the HALO triple pack.   Same name, even similar box art.   Are people forgetting that?

Genius marketing! :|

@benjaebe: 
 
Have you heard the writing/dialogue in Gears of War?
 
In short: yes it was.
#71 Posted by Gonmog (580 posts) -

im buying it!! :/ im one of the slobs that never got it before lol 

#72 Posted by fearthephins (148 posts) -

This will work nicely for me. I never bought the first game and my brother sold the second game. I also found myself really wanting to play Gears lately so I will most probably get my hands on this.

#73 Posted by dcgc (878 posts) -

I think you can get both games (collector's edition, or something like that) separated and cheaper, in the UK...

#74 Posted by Branthog (7340 posts) -

So . . . by "triple pack", they actually mean "double pack".

#75 Posted by MysteriousBob (6272 posts) -

@  Perhaps the coolest bit of DLC the Triple Pack offers is the “Road to Ruin” campaign mission for Gears of War 2, which gives you the opportunity to play as Marcus and Dom dressed as Theron guards. The mission itself revolves around getting into the Nexus, and you get two options for the approach: go stealth with Theron outfits or bust in with guns blazing. 
 
What the hell are you talking about? It wasn't cool, everyone hated that shit.

i count only 2 games

#77 Posted by Lucidlife (107 posts) -

I don't see this big issue with the name.  Find something more important to worry about.  Jesus.  If you can't read the CLEAR description of what the pack contains then you deserve to be disappointed when Gears 3 isn't in the box.

#78 Posted by Ortep (13 posts) -

Gears 2 1/2 pack would be better.

#79 Posted by MrKlorox (11198 posts) -

Cool. Might pick this up. The name is super misleading though.

#80 Posted by RidleysLieutenant (21 posts) -

Meh, I already own all this stuff. Can't wait for Gears 3 and Coalition's End, though.

Hey, that's me!

Too bad Gears 1 was so unbearable to play.
