With a happy bit of ‘coincidental’ timing, Microsoft has announced that its hotly anticipated exclusive shooter Gears of War will be available on the 17th November – exactly the same day as the PS3 launches in the UK. So get ready to fight for your place in the queue amongst all the Sony early adopters.
Plugging a big Halo 3 shaped hole in the Xbox 360 games catalogue, Gears of War is a futuristic shoot ‘em up which lets you pop caps in the asses of a range of nightmarish insect scum bags – number three in our favourite past-times behind sword fighting and space travel.
Anyone who’s played the massive Unreal Tournament series will know what to expect from Gears of War: incendiary fire fights, planet-busting weapons and eye-blistering action.
We’re locked and loaded in anticipation.
