Gears of War Price Drop and Two Disc Special Edition Announced

Gears of War, the chainsaw revving, shotgun toting, bestselling game for the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows is getting a price drop on June 4. The Xbox 360 version will drop down to $39.99 while the Games for Windows version drops down to $29.99.

On June 24 the Xbox 360 will get a special edition two disc version with the first disc containing the standard game (along with multiplayer add-on Annex) and the second disc featuring the two map packs available on Xbox LIVE, the Emergence Day theme and gamer pics, and Gears of War gamer pics. You’ll also get Gears of War 2 trailers, a theme, and gamer pics.

One thing to note is that while you will be able to score 250 more achievement points to inflate that gamerscore of yours, this will not feature the PC exclusive level and ensuing boss battle.

    I wonder why they decided to give the Emergence Day theme and gamer pic away in this package? I thought those were exclusive to people that played the game the first weekend Gears of War was out and it kind of makes them less special if anyone that buys this version can have them. Especially, when the people buying the game now were not diehard supporters of the game at launch. Maybe they should given a different theme and gamer pic away with this one, but they shouldn’t give you the special one you could only get if you had the game at launch.

    I missed getting the special Emergence Day gamer picture back on launch weekend even though I had the game. I wish I would’ve gotten it, but I don’t think it will be as special if anyone can get it by buying this version of the game.
