Redmond, Washington—Gears of War® has gone triple platinum, reaching the three million units sold milestone in just 10 weeks on store shelves, ending 2006 as the top-selling game among all platforms during the month of December.

Expanding upon its reign as the fastest-selling title of 2006 and the fastest-selling original exclusive Xbox 360™ game of all time, Gears of War has captivated gamers across the globe with its action-packed single-player campaign, thrilling online modes and recently released multiplayer maps, Raven Down and Old Bones.

"Gears of War is tracking to be one of the
best-selling video games of all time."
—Jeff Bell, Corporate VP, Microsoft

The free downloadable maps were released less than two weeks ago via Xbox Live® Marketplace and sponsored by the Discovery Channel's "FutureWeapons" series. In that short time, the new maps have garnered an astounding 750,000 downloads. There have been more than 1.5 million total downloads of all Gears of War content currently available via Marketplace, including the maps, themes, and video walkthrough, by gamers who can't get enough of Delta Squad and the Locust Horde.

Another Blockbuster Hit
"Like blockbuster titles from Microsoft's Halo® franchise and the Grand Theft Auto and Zelda franchises, Gears of War is tracking to be one of the best-selling video games of all time and has established itself as the most successful new intellectual property (IP) of the next generation," said Jeff Bell, corporate vice president of Global Marketing, Interactive Entertainment Business Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft Corp.

Gears of War continues to wow consumers and critics alike, garnering more than 20 nominations for Game of the Year. The game is a truly global phenomenon—the prestigious Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently gave Gears of War the coveted Platinum award. Gears of War joins Blue Dragon as the second Microsoft Game Studios title in the past two months to receive this high honor.

Not just a gaming sensation, the acclaimed Gears of War Mad World cinematic trailer was featured in Advertising Age's Book of Tens as one of the top creative concepts of 2006. With more than 2.4 million views of the trailer online, the campaign has inspired not only tremendous sales, but also a number of hilarious parody videos currently circulating around the Internet.

Gears of War
Gears of War, rated "M" for Mature, thrusts you into humankind's epic battle for survival against the Locust Horde, a nightmarish race of creatures that surface from the bowels of the planet. Blending the best of tactical action games with the best of survival horror titles, Gears of War features cinematic, beautifully rendered interactive environments with high-definition visuals.
3 million people CAN'T be wrong, can they?

I wish I had my Box so I could download the new maps, or even be playing it I miss my GoW

Hey Stick, I am on Act 3 of Insane. It is sooooo much fun, too bad that you can't be playing it right now. I want to play insane co-op with you.
