Gears of War For $44

I just pulled the trigger on Gears of War, after about a week of staring at various prices. The reason: Google made me an offer I could not refuse. Google Checkout is taking $20 off almost anything over $50 at a bunch of shops, including Buy.com, which makes the $60 Gears of War just $44.39, including shipping. Who could resist?

Other things you can pick up (before shipping):

  • Obviously, any $60 game for $40
  • Rainbow Six Vegas for $35.79
  • Xbox Live Wireless Headset for $35.74
  • Wireless controller for $35.74 (after $10 discount)
  • Wired Controller $25.32
  • Wifi adapter for $79.99
  • Xbox Live Gold 12-months subscription + wired headset + Live Arcade game + 200 Microsoft Points for $39.99
  • Xbox 360 Hard Drive for $79.99
  • Xbox Live Vision Gold Pack (Vision camera + headset + 12 months Live Gold + 3 Live Arcade games + 200 MS Points) - $51.02

In other Gears of War news, the game has sold an amazing 1 million copies already, easilly on track to be the top-selling 360 game yet. Microsoft’s Gamerscore blog reports:

The battle continues to rage on Xbox Live as well, as more than 850,000 unique gamers have engaged in 10 million gameplay sessions while unlocking an impressive 7 million Achievements. On top of being the #1 title on Xbox Live, “Gears of War” has also driven new members to the network, as paid registrations per day have skyrocketed more than 50 percent since the game’s launch.
