Games on Demand: Gears of War

 

The following Xbox 360 games are now ready for direct download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace:

 

Gears of War®Content: Gears of War
Price: Check pricing for your region
Availability: Not available in Japan
Dash Text: (Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB) This game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Chinese. Download the manual for this game by locating the game on http://marketplace.xbox.com and selecting “See Game Manual”. A Nightmare from Below. A Hero from Within. The planet lies in ruin – cities crumbling, Man’s greatest works fallen. Humanity is cornered, nowhere to run. The Locust Horde has risen, and they won’t stop coming. They won’t stop killing. The Coalition is desperate for soldiers. The sick, the wounded, the imprisoned are all that remain. An inmate named Marcus Fenix, once left to die, is now charged with keeping humanity alive. He can take comfort in but one fact: The human race isn’t extinct. Yet. Features – “Take cover and return fire!” with the intuitive one – button cover system to blind fire, evade, flank, and ultimately destroy the nightmarish Locust Horde.

    Major Nelson: Do you think its fair to have such crazy prices on old games?
    $50 here in Norway. Can someone explain the logic in this?

    Because there must be some people out there who buy them, and they make a killing on everyone that does.

    The original Gears for £19.99? F*** off, you can get the Gears 2 GOTY for sub-£13 now.
    @theuglyteradon – No, but the DLC for the first game is all free now anyway. Like old DLC should be.

    And I don’t know if this is the right place to ask, but is there any chance Gears PC will be coming to the PC Games On Demand service any time soon? I’ve been looking to pick that game up for ages but I can’t find it in stores and I’d prefer a digital download. I would have thought that Halo 2 & Gears PC would have launched with the PC On Demand service.😦

    Cant Microsoft learn to be a fair company? Really? You guys set to fail by trying to milk us of all our money. Is $50 a year for a traditionally free service not enough? Jesus.

    Ummm, why is it $40 in Canada but $20 in the US? That doesn’t make any sense when you exchange the money there’s only like a $2 difference. Seriously this Games on Demand is going very well from my point of view.

    First party game should be around £9.99 here. I can get it a lot cheaper used.

    Hmm…. 19.99$ USD for 39.99$ CAD, what kind of rip-off bank set prices/exchange rates for Live content?

    From XE.COM as of today, 1 USD = 1.04243 CAD so 20.84$ CAD would be the fair price.

    Isn’t this kind of practice called fraud or a racket? Anyone knows what legal means us customers have against ridicule pricing like that?

    THIS is what I would call holiday extravaganza (lame joke about xmas live deals…)

    Major: this is a really, really bad joke. Just give it up, already. And yes, you’ll pass on our comments, whatever. I’m sure the money-hungry marketing team or whoever don’t give a damn.

    Saw this at the store for $9.99 not even on sale. These prices are terrible. BY THE WAY All the Christmas countdown crap sucks. I was hoping to pick up Braid but you just had to be a money whore and give us some crap movie rental that no one cares about. Thanks MS Im so glad that you care about your customers enough to give them a crappy movie rental on days that other countries get great games. Thanks

    Hint: Check on average how much a game like this sells for used, match the average price and then at least make some money out this service from a lot more people. I hope the majority of players are buying their games new or used through the Internet and even in-store because the prices on Games on Demand are too high.

    I would rather be making at least some extra money (even if it is not much) from a game that has already financially done well. People are going to buy this used if they need to, which means no money for Microsoft, Epic – just the retailer/seller.

    Try and offer a fair price and you’ll be able to get more people, more money overall. It would be a win, win situation then.
