I have yet to pay the typical $59.99 for any 360 game as I always find the games on ebay for much cheaper new (30 to 50 bucks) but to hell with it... Gears of War is mine on Wednesday (along with Call of Duty 3).

I'm ...going to buy a console shooter(OMG), I even pre-ordered it. :captnkill:
Just got off the horn with my local EB\Gamestop and thier District manager is driving to NJ to pickup and hand deliver GoW his stores pre-orders so customers don't have to wait until Wednesday... I like my EB :)

Looks like on the westcoast is getting the game tomorrow, everyone else is Wednesday. MS allowed retailers to park their trucks there overnight to get the game early. Pretty much all westcoast retailers did it. Just judging by the epic forums, I've yet to see anyone on the east or mid cast that's received the call.

Agreed, tune totally suits the game in every way.

Unfortunately for us, Emergence Day isn't until the 17th so i'll be avoiding some threads to keep away from Spoilers. lol

Got a prerecording saying that my copy would be available tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to call around 1 PM just to see what time frame we are looking at here. Hope it isn't one of those 6 PM releases or some gay crap like that.

As a fellow Brit, I'm going to be doing the same, hopefully we can have 2 GOW threads; one with no spoliers, just general impressions and another where people can spoil away ;)

I'm having to be even more patient as, although I've got the Limited Edition pre-ordered, I won't be playing it until December 25th..... :(

I've got to set a good example as a dad and not touch it until Xmas ... :)

I think 10 is a bit too high imho. The review even said it had a lot of flaws (AI, poor story, etc). A 10 represents the pinnacle of gaming - a perfect work of art. Give it a 9.8, but not a perfect 10.

QFT! If you find anything wrong with the game then a 10 rating is not warranted. From the looks of these reviews it seems like that man you love to hate (aka Cliffy_B) has created a system seller. His head is gonna swell bigger then ever!!
