The Gears of War series has pushed through 19 million in sales, which is an additional one million since it the figure of 18 million was announced in July. The math comes from Microsoft via Joystiq, and while the firm would not disclose sales figures for Gears of War 3, its first week at retail saw the title move 3 million, while Gears 1 and Gears 2 were noted to have sold 12 million combined as of June 2012.

    If there is one thing Gears and Resistance have in common it’s that they are both boring franchises.

    Could you repeat that? I can’t hear you over the crunching sound of Doritos and the zappy taste of Mountain Dew.

    Whilst 3 dissaponted me a little for been to easy on hardcore I am now trying it on insane and man I am on act 1 trying to kill the monster on the bridge and it is damn tough.
    5th or 6th attempt so far and no luck but getting a little further each try.

    Good franchise imo and another good exclusive 360 game alongside a few others.

    Say what you want but until you own both consoles everything is just a sour grapes bitch fest really.

    Both consoles are great and neither has been able to out shine the other this gen imho so next gen is where the fun begins really.

    Jim Reilly: Microsoft says that 19 million sales number for the Gears of War series is sold through, not shipped.

    I prefer Gears of War to Halo,Forza and Fable.

    Gears Of War 2-3 are fantastic games in my opinion.

    The first one is uninspired piece of turd, but everything else after that is an improvement in everything.
