Gears Of War To Release November 12

Microsoft has announced that the hotly anticipated Xbox 360 exclusive title Gears Of War will release on November 12, 2006, a day the marketing folks are calling “Emergence Day”. Considering Gears is the first possible 360 blockbuster (and possibly the only hot game to drop this entire year), the whole industry will be watching those sales figures. A flop by Gears will have a lot of repurcusions, as will a success, both on the 360’s place in the console war as well on the direction of the industry as a whole.

In case you are wondering, the PlayStation 3 will drop five days later. Also, the 11/12/06 date isn’t exact, since EB and GameStop (and possibly others) have said they intend to have their own trucks parked outside Microsoft’s warehouse on November 7, five days before the game ships, and will get the games into their stores ahead of their typical shipping channels. A very cool idea, and shows you how important this game may be. Where that warehouse is located may determine what date you get your copy on.
