Gears 3 Biggest Launch of 2011

Xbox 360 exclusive, Gears of War 3 hit shops with all guns blazing and now dominates the UK charts. After two weeks at number one in the UK, Dead Island has finally been usurped, making Gears 3 the biggest launch of 2011.

Gears 3 has almost sold more in its first week than Gears 1 and 2 combined did at launch, making it the seventh largest 360 release of all time.With FIFA 12 out this week in the UK, the reign of Gears 3 could be short-lived, but a great feat nonetheless.
