Gears of War sells two million copies


In only six weeks Gears of War managed to sell two million copies worldwide. That makes Gears the fastest selling Xbox exclusive game of all time. Besides making money on software sales Gears of War has increased the number of people who signed on to Xbox Live. Since the game’s launch paid registrations per day have increased over 50 percent. More than a million gamers have logged on to play Gears online and there have been ten million matches. A game that sells millions of copies, systems and Xbox Live memberships is the huge cash cow the Xbox 360 needs until Halo 3 comes out next year.
