    If you can’t even get Epic to make a Gears game it may be time for a break in the franchise.

    • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      Or they could manage to make a better gears than Epic.

    • http://twitter.com/HotDanceTrax Alex

      Epic made the multiplayer, people can fly worked on single player

      • Russell Gorall

        Sure. This just would mean the game is going to be even more haphazard.

    • http://twitter.com/Keymaker2005 Zbigniew Borowski

      Dude, People Can Fly actually IS Epic Games so what’s the problem?

      • Russell Gorall

        How dense are you?

  • Brett Johnson

    People Can Fly is a part of Epic, and a fantastic part at that.

    Great timing, 8PM ET is only 2AM on Monday for European mainland… There are gamers that also have a regular daytime job…

    More disapointment for people outside the U.S, there are other places in the world you know…..

  • http://twitter.com/pannekoken Alex

    why just US and canada streaming?!
    somebody should really hire some good P.R. people at microsoft. I feel everyday that Europe (especially “hardcore” european fans) are always looking down the barrel :(

  • http://twitter.com/MrXBob Mr XBob

    Europe has the highest number of Xbox 360 consoles sold. And yet we get treated like second class fans.

    Thanks, Microsoft.

    • relevance

      Sony for me next gen…fed up of ms now

      • http://twitter.com/dibils dibils

        if you think MS treats Europe badly cant wait till you experience Sony. its gonna be hilarious

        • GmailIsDown

          Sony treats Europe badly? Take a look at how many free game rentals Europe PS+ users get. And take a look at how many US PS+ users get. It is sad.

          • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN Bennijin

            On the other hand, XBLA games launch simultaneously when EU PS3 users can be waiting for months after US PS3 users get their PSN games.

            (And on an inexplicable third hand, PSN+ users often get 10%+ discount on new downloadable games at launch.)

          • http://twitter.com/MrXBob Mr XBob

            I like how you say “free” when you’re paying a subscription to rent them. You’re paying for a rental service. You’re not getting free games.

        • relevance

          U have no ide what ur talking about…I own a ps3 and sony give far more for my money.

          • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

            You speak for yourself and yourself only. You definitely don’t speak for me.

    day 6 isnt working! wtf ><

  • chris

    You can post this, but not fix the prices for day 6 or even explain what is happening. I .hope we dont get screwed over and miss a day

  • http://www.facebook.com/blueonblack Eric Rhoades

    Why would you hype another crappy game? Every Gears game has been terrible. I know you all agree.

        I’d be all over Left 4 Dead 2 right now. I COULD get Orange Box but I already own what’s important from it already, Portal 1.

    Damn, this is quite bad. Still no Sale day 6?

  • http://www.facebook.com/MoveToMars Jesse Meating

    You guys need to fix the sales prices for day 6. It shows the games like The Orange
    Box for a cheaper sale price but when you click to download it they are
    for the regular full price.

  • http://twitter.com/CryBigboy Cry bigboy

    What a joke no day 6 deals!!!

  • Warcinder

    I want to buy Left 4 Dead 2, come on, I’m Mexican, please put the game in the correct price!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.fulmer Брайан Эванс

    Can you at least tell us when the sale prices will be live?

  • kyle murphy

    I love how people are more interested in day 6 of sales than the latest Gears game.

      Damn straight..gears of who?

        call of what?

    • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN Bennijin

      Gears was fun at first but they’re all the same. It got boring.

  • My Mahalo

    This “Ultimate Sale” has left me with a very bitter taste in my mouth. Enough to change platform in the next gen. The Sale has been very one sided. Seems like we’re on the end that pays for the discounts the U.S. are getting. If it wasn’t bad enough trying to pass off the $ as equal to €/£, The real insult was when Downloadable games are priced more higher ($2.99 = €14.99??) around the globe and more expensive than the store (Physical edition) in some cases. May Piracy reign supreme with attitudes like that. Major Nelson, Major Fail, Major Disaster.

    • lethargicj

      I have already started saving up to grab a PS3. I figure my current 360 and a PS3 can keep me gaming for another couple of years and then I’ll see how the next gen is going and decide what I want then. I have been a hardcore Xbox fanboy since the launch of Xbox 1. I despise everything about Sony. Buying the next Xbox used to be a no brainer. That I’m considering going PS4 really says a lot about how badly MS has boggled a lot of things the past couple of years.

    cant believe UK people cant watch the stream.. ITS A F’ING STREAM why cant you just open it to everyone in the world??

  • http://www.facebook.com/brian.fulmer Брайан Эванс

    What the heck is going on with Day 6 of the game sale? Can you give us an update on that?

  • Sanglant

    I wonder if MS realizes how important this game is in saving them from bankruptcy. Think about it – the only core gaming exclusive franchises they have that set them apart from Sony is Halo and Gears. Gears 3 was a big letdown, campaign-wise and MP-wise. Horde was well done, but 1 out of 3 ain’t cutting it. IF this Gears is a well-received success (and I mean by the summer gamers really still care, not 1st week sales), MS stand a chance of keeping their solid gamer base going into the next-gen; however, if this Gears is another failure like Gears 3 was (again, 1st week sales don’t mean much in the long-run), all they have is Halo and Forza which is mitigated by a $60 annual fee that gives the user no tangible benefits – that ladies & gents could be how Microsoft’s Xbox brand dies in a single console generation because I can’t imagine many gamers paying $60 annual just to play two franchises when they can pay no additional charges for 5 different exclusive AAA single player franchises. MS, are you listening, its time to come down off your perch and get a dose of reality…you need to change Xbox Live for the better or risk consumer damnation.

    • http://www.facebook.com/cleiton.m.santos Cleiton Santos

      Had to lol on this.

    • Darth Stewie

      Bankruptcy? Come on. Really?

      • lethargicj

        Yep. Obviously a game series that has made over a billion dollars will lead MS to bankruptcy.

    • lethargicj

      If all they have is Halo and Forza than what are all these other 100+ games sitting on my shelf? I must’ve been duped.

      • http://twitter.com/NAVARiN Bennijin

        He’s full of s**t but I’m pretty sure he meant exclusive games.

        • Sanglant

          how am I full of it? Sony is adding the features Xbox Live has for free. with PSN+ you get free content while your a subscriber, Xbox Live gives you nothing. Xbox Live had party chat and MP exclusives that mattered to me, now only Halo is relevant (hopefully Gears: Judgement will make Gears relevant again). Why pay $300 over the course of 5 years just to be allowed to play 2 more Halo games? You see the list of games MS first party studios are making? 1 new unknown supposed AAA FPS that is rumored to be having issues, Halo 5, a new Forza, maybe Gears 4, and a bunch of Kinect kids games. MS is too focused on kids games IMO, or at least needs to expand their first party studios to make more core-gamer exclusives because, financially, I need more reason to continue paying $60 per year for “access” to games I already paid $60 to own. Idk if MS has structured themselves to rely upon Xbox Live subscription fees, but it seems they have based on an MS exec’s interview earlier this year. you lose gamers, you lose your revenue stream, you’re done. MS could obviously bail its Xbox brand out, but it doesn’t mean they would, they might focus on other things and sink the ship…business is business.
