Gears of War 3 (game)

Time to "gear" up, gamers! At midnight on September 20, Gears of War 3 will officially go on sale at the Causeway Bay branch of HMV, The Park Lane. To mark the occasion, Xbox Hong Kong will hold a special lucky draw with some fabulous prizes.

Up for grabs are 500 sets of the exclusive, limited-edition Gears of War 3 320GB consoles; they come with Gears of War 3-themed wireless controllers, and both a limited-edition and standard-edition of the game (HK$3,269).

There will also be a Special Edition Epic package available, that includes a 7-inch figure of Marcus and a card with a download code for either Commando Dom or Mechanic Baird (price TBA). The first 100 people to buy the Epic package will be put into a lucky draw for a chance to win a 1:1 Retro Lancer Replica, a T-shirt signed by GOW3 creative director Cliff Bleszinski or a Gears of War 3 Special Edition T-shirt (unsigned).

The first 10 people to buy the Epic package will also get a limited-edition Marcus portrait; a 96-page behind-the-scenes book by journalist Tom Bissell titled The Art and Design of Gears of War, containing interviews, photos, and manuscripts. Also included will be an "Infected Omen Weapon Pack" download code for the multiplayer mode, giving gamers access to weapons including the Lancer, Gnasher Shotgun and Hammerburst.

The queue starts at 3pm tomorrow (September 19). Be there: the fate of the human race is on the line!
