While speaking about the forthcoming launch of Epic's Gears of War 2
, Phil Spencer, general manager of Microsoft Game Studios has declared:
"Each holiday season in this current console generation, Xbox 360 has led the industry with the best lineup of blockbuster video games, and we are poised to lead the charge again in 2008 with Gears of War 2
Now then, does this seem a tad provocative? Or is Phil right on the money? Also, is leading this generation including the Nintendo Wii? And when all is said and done, how does this gen fare against the PS2 or even the handhelds? The PSP and DS don't seem to be suffering. Answers to the Forum please.
For those of you who absolutely must have Gears 2
as the release day hits, Game in Kingston Upon Thames (!) will be having a 'special event' opening at 00:01 on November 7th. The specialness comes courtesy of "Gears of War
comic book artist Liam Sharp and Microsoft Game Studios staff (who) will be on location to participate in the launch activities and give away Gears of War 2 merchandise."
Nip over to L.A. and you'll get to meet Xbox LIVE?s Major Nelson, Cliff Bleszinski, voice actors John Di Maggio (Marcus Fenix), Lester ?Rasta? Speight (Augustus Cole), and Carlos Ferro (Dominic Santiago) but it's no Kingston Upon Thames is it?Source: Microsoft
