Gears of War Finally Reaches Platinum Hits Status... In Asia, At Least!


Microsoft’s 2006 blockbuster, Gears of War, has finally gone Platinum… in Asia, at least. Gears of War, which was released exactly one year ago, has become one of the best-selling Xbox 360 games to date, and is the fourth highest-rated Xbox 360 title on Game Rankings (sitting at a highly-impressive 94% average).

While Gears of War probably won’t become a Platinum Hits title in the U.S. for quite some time (despite being released for a year, it’s still selling steadily on this side of the pond), you can still import a brand new copy at Play-Asia for a mere $29.90. Even better is the fact that the Asian version is region free! Regardless if you call the world’s most popular sport soccer, football, or, perhaps, fútbol, you can still play this title on your console. However, here’s hoping you know how to speak either English or Chinese, because language settings are strictly limited to those two.

I wonder if the dialogue in the Asian adaptations of this is spoken in a foreign language.

Funnyman, you can chose either Chinese or English and the entire game will be in that language.

And Elderly... maybe you can learn Chinese by playing Gears of War! Yeah, probably not... but that sounds good...

What's more, Xbox 360 finally started making a dent in the Asian market. Also, I hear that the PC version of Gears aint that shoddy either...

I hope they re-re-release the PC iteration for a console.
