Gears of War 2 Merchandise
by Mark R
It appears the Gears of War franchise is bigger than I thought as I found not one, but two products that are Gears of War related today.
First is the Gears of War themed Zune, which not only sports specially designed graphics on the frame, but it comes pre-loaded with 240 pieces of Gears of War and its sequel’s media including “the original game soundtrack, behind-the-scenes videos, game trailers, concept art galleries, and more”. All of this content is exclusive to this Microsoft MP3 Player.
Of course, if you really want to live Gears of War, you can always purchase the Lancer rifle, a virtual prop from the game now turned real. As you can see by the fake blood on the saw edge of this, this is no children’s toy. However, it does have one fun feature as it can vibrate, and even has a chainsaw sound.
The Gears of War 2 game is slated for release on November 7th, and this is the same day the Gears of War Zune is planned to be released. It should be about $280 for this special edition.
As for the Lancer rifle, it costs about $140, or $210 with a limited edition of Gears of War 2. It should be available sometime next month.
