Gears of War 3 sells over 3 million copies in first week


It’s no secret that critics loved Gears of War 3, and now with news breaking that Gears 3 sold over three million copies in its first week alone, I think it’s safe to say that gamers are loving Epic’s latest installment in the series. With over three million sales, that makes Gears of War 3 the biggest launch of 2011, and the sixth largest Xbox360 launch week.

Figures like that are definitely a win for both Microsoft and Epic, and Gears 3 seems set to follow the critical and commercial success of its predecessors Gears 1 and 2. The series now has over 15 million copies sold across its 3 released games.
