Clarification: No Microsoft-made US$ 130 Gears of War 2 lancer bundle
Earlier, we had reported on the possibility of a US$ 130 Gears of War 2 bundle that supposedly would come with a replica of the lancer weapon from the game. Microsoft has clarified the matter though and, sad to say, that bundle may have been a misunderstanding. Learn more after the jump.
Earlier, we had reported on the possibility of a US$ 130 Gears of War 2 bundle that supposedly would come with a replica of the lancer weapon from the game. Well, Xbox 360 Fanboy managed to get some additional clarification from Microsoft and, sad to say, that bundle may have been a misunderstanding.
Microsoft said the following about the bundles they’re offering for the game and the US$ 130 lancer business Cliff Bleszinski mentioned at Comic-Con 08:
“We have officially announced a Standard Edition (US$ 59.99) and Limited Edition (US$ 69.99) for Gears of War 2, which will both be available on November 7th, 2008 worldwide. Retailers often create their own bundles to appeal to specific customers. The ‘Lancer’ bundle referenced at San Diego Comic-Con is not a package being offered by Microsoft Game Studios.”
We suppose that CliffyB was simply referring to the awesomeness of the lancer replica that was put on display at Comic-Con, and not necessarily an actual bundle. That said, it’d be cool if someone packaged that up with a Limited Edition of the game and sold it for a reasonable price.
That way, we’d have something to use for our Marcus Fenix Brokeback Mountain cosplay skit. Zing!
