Gears Of War Reaches 3 Million Sold

Some more happy news for Microsoft: Gears of War has now sold an amazing three million copies. Microsoft has completely set the bar for games sold in this video game generation. Also announced: the multiplayer map pack for Gears of War, released about ten days ago, has been downloaded by 750,000 users, showing off well just how many Gears buyers are enjoying the online play of the blockbuster title.

And while Gears of War received plenty of high marks in the U.S., garnering Game of the Year nominations and awards from multiple outlets, it’s also worth noting that the shooter is one of the few Western video games to gain some acclaim among Japanese press. Famitsu has given Gears a Platinum award, making it the second Microsoft Games Studio title to receive that honor in the past two months following Blue Dragon.
