Gears of War 3 Sells Three…Million Copies in Launch Week

on September 26, 2011 8:00 PM

I don’t think anybody expected the very long awaited third installment in the acclaimed Gears of War series to flop. Especially when its receiving marks as high as the perfect ten we gave it. Unsurprisingly, Gears of War 3 has claimed the biggest American video game launch of the year, selling more than three million copies.

According to VGChartz, Gears of War 3 has sold more in its debut week than Gears of War and Gears of War 2 sold in their respective debut weeks combined. On top of that, it has outsold all other games released in the west this year and is expected to sell more than eight million copies in its lifetime. In short, its a big hit. Gears of War 3 is available now exclusively for the Xbox 360.
