Gears of War getting price drop, special edition emerges June 24

With Emergence Day: Part Deux on the horizon, Gears of War on Xbox 360 and PC will experience a pricing curb stomp on June 4th, with the Xbox 360 version going down to $40 and the PC version dipping to $30.

If you haven't jumped into the Gears of War emulsion pool yet, it might be worth waiting a couple more weeks until June 24, when the special two-disc version of Gears is released for $40. The special edition contains the multiplayer map packs, along with several other extras (listed after the break). This new Xbox 360 version will not have the PC-exclusive Brumak battle, but we can wait until this holiday for GoW2, when the longing for a Brumak showdown on our Xbox will become but a distant memory.

Gears special edition:

Disc One

  • Gears of War (game disc)

Disc Two

  • Gears of War - Map Packs 1 & 2
  • Gears of War - Theme - 'Emergence Day'
  • Gears of War - Gamer Pics - 'Gears of War,' 'Emergence Day'
