After a month at retailers, Epic Games' cover-heavy action sequel Gears of War 2 (X360) has sold over three million copies around the world, the developer has disclosed.

"[Publisher] Microsoft confirmed to me this afternoon that Gears of War 2 sell-through surpassed 3 million units as of last week," Epic VP Mark Rein confirmed with Edge.

Following its November 7 debut, Gears of War 2 sold over two million units in its opening weekend. The original Gears of War has sold 5 million copies, claims Edge.

    finally got a chance to start playing it this past weekend (SP), and i must say, even though you'll never see me asking for clffy's autgraph, this game kicks ass, even in comparison to the first one. beautiful graphics and fun/visceral combat, story's pretty good as well.

      The story is great but the single player gameplay is nowhere near as good as the first one. The bosses are just frustrating and there was too many vehicle section. MP is great fun though.
