So as you have probably guessed from the headline, the release of long awaited Gears of War 3 has been pushed from its April 5th, 2011 all the way to holiday 2011. For those of you who don’t like figuring out the math for how many months later that is, it is 8 months delayed, now being over a year away. Unfortunately, we should all have seen this coming as this same scenario played out last year. Many of the holiday releases were pushed back into the spring and some even into the summer and now it looks like this process is starting again.
As quoted from Microsoft, “”The teams at Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games have done great work thus far readying the title for release in the Spring of 2011…However, we’ve elected to move the launch of Gears of War 3 until Fall 2011 to make it the marquee title for the holiday season.” I’m sure some/most of you are saddened by this news, but worry not! To cheer you up, go watch this silly video of two japanese guys (one playing and the other simply aiding in commentary) playing tag with a 1up in Super Mario 64. 😛
