    […] Is Gears of War 3 the game that means you simply have to buy a 360? One might wonder why the previous two installments weren’t enough, if that’s the case, but one would also direct you towards the Limited Edition console recently announced over on the Xbox Live blog. […]

    Major I would LOVE it if this had an EPIC version.  I’m going for the full package here, why can’t we get everything in the EPIC Edition with it too!  MOAR DLC SKINS!

    I’m not sure if I like it or not.  It looks sticky from all of the blood.

    would bee great if one of the top of the handles had another button for clutch… that would have been a real winner, though… didnt seem to work out that way… gotta love how they ask the community for their opinions, to help their business

    will the 320gig HDD be sold separately eventually?…and is that the special rotating D pad on the Gears controller?

    If the controller is sold separately I’d get that. I’ve already got my pre-order in on the Epic Edition and now there’s some new Lancer bundle that’s 70 dollars more and comes with the Epic Edition package. I cannot spend all this money although I would like to!

    I want the epic edition of the game, and my xbox just red ringed so I am going to get this when it comes out. Why can’t it include that version of the game instead, I’d rather have that than 2 controllers (I already own a bunch of controllers lol). I don’t need two copies of the game, is there any way around this?

    I like it and the extra space will come in handy, I have less then 80gb of space on my 250gb HDD.  I just want to know how you are supposed to transfer your information from a new S Model 360 HDD to this HDD, since the connector for the original HDD will not fit anymore.

    Im very curious as to how im supposed to transfer from a 250gb slim to this bigger hd. The transfer cable is for old hard drives. Will they package a new transfer cable as well? Also why do these systems still come with standard A/V cables. Im guessing more than half of the gaming community world wide has upgraded to HD televisions. Can i get some HD cables for 399$ for petes sake
