Gears of War 2 surpasses 3 million milestone

After hearing word about Gears of War 2 selling a few million units its first week at retail, Epic Games VP Mark Rein just confirmed with Edge Magazine that Gears 2 has reached the 3 million unit sell through milestone. Wowzaz!

Rein announced Gears 2's 3 million sell through success late last night, noting that Gears 2 achieved 3 million in sales in four weeks. In comparison, the original Gears (which ended up selling around 5 million copies) took ten weeks to tally up the same amount of sales. Now, Epic, we just ask that you not forget to keep supporting your lil' money making gem with regular DLC and as many title updates as necessary. Congrats!
