Preorder on Gears Of War 2 - Game Of The Year Edition @ shopto.net

Found 10th Sep 2009Made hot 11th Sep 2009
The gears of war continue to turn as Marcus Fenix and his squad of Cogs go back into action in the sequel to Microsoft and developer Epic Games' blockbuster action title. Gears of War 2 continues the story of Marcus Fenix and Delta Squad, locked in an increasingly desperate battle against the nightmarish Locust Horde for the survival of humanity. The game promises to be an epic saga of survival, loss, and retribution. Just as Gears of War set the standard for high-definition visuals, Gears of War 2 raises the bar even further with the amazing technological advances of Unreal Engine 3, delivering a bigger, badder, and more intense experience as the story continues.

GOTY Edition Includes:

Fully Loaded with all map packs: Flashback, Combustible, Snowblind and Dark Corners
Complete multiplayer experience, 19 bonus maps and every multiplayer mode and achievements
"Road To Ruin" - New campaign chapter.

this is basically Gears 2 with every piece of DLC released bundled into a pack, on Xbox Live this would cost you 1600 points which is over half of the price of this pack, and the original game is still like £15-20 everywhere else.

I think this is a great buy for people who haven't bought any of the DLC.

^^^^^EDIT^^^^^: play.com have this pack listed at £34.99 ... definately a steal!!!

Was GoW 2 seriously game of the year?
Consider me blown away....

the content isnt on the disc its just a code to download it from xbox live,so if you already have the game its not worth it

I'm sure someone said Fallout 3 was GOTY..

These games all use the GOTY name to mean that it includes all the extra downloads maps etc...

Its my game of the year, superb. Nothing else like it!

Yes Fallout 3 was Game of the Year (RPG) Best Action Game of the Year was Gears 2

Hardly PS3 fanboys, as those poor, deluded souls got fairly shafted with the Fallout 3 DLC...
It is however a little confusing when more than one game per year advertises itself as THE Game Of The Year.
The Fallout 3 GOTY edition will however actually include a second DVD with the 4000 M$ points worth of DLC on it, whilst the GoW GOTY apparently only comes with a code, making the re-sale value _significantly_ lower. E.g. once you've used the code the only difference between the GOTY edition and the non-GOTY edition is ... um... the packaging?
Horses for courses either way - Fallout 3 is a single-player shooter RPG with the DLC extending the single player 'campaign', whilst Gears is basically a multiplayer shooter with the majority of the DLC being just more maps to play the same multiplayer game on.
If you're not into multiplayer then you may as well just get the original game...
BTW, I have both in my collection, and enjoyed playing through Gears in co-op with a mate - but that lasted less than 20 hours to beat it on Normal and then Very Hard, whilst I've probably spent over 400 hours playing Fallout 3, so I know which offers better value IMNVHO

Anyway, back on topic, it does still seem like a good deal at that price!

Thanks for this. Heat and reputation added.
When was this version announced? Only heard about it when I saw this post and it is out next week

I hope that shopto.net don't increase the price between now and release.

Is there a Game of the Year "Game of the Year"?

Or a Game of the Year of the Year?

I just an email to say my pre-order of this has been dispatched. 1st class recorded so should be here for the release day of Friday at the latest. Got it for 18.95 including the £1 credit that was already in my account. I check back on the shopto.net site and this is showing as in stock now but has been increased in price to £29.85 already! (same with Fable 2 GOTY) Great result. Thanks again original poster for bringing this to our attention. If I could give more reputation I would.

I'm going to click expire.
