Gears of War 3 sells 3 million copies first week, drinks all around

Epic and Microsoft are in a good mood after it Major Nelson had announced that worldwide Gears of War 3 has shipped more than 3 million copies in its first week alone. Since GoW3 is an Xbox 360 exclusive that has to be the biggest feather in the cap for Microsoft who you can bet are popping open the champagne and partying this one up thanks to the over 3 million fans who bought the game. I wonder what the numbers will look like at the end of the month.

“In just one week, Gears 3 has already grossed more than any 2011 video game to date,” quoted from Major Nelsons’s blog.

With that the Gears of War franchise is now worth over a Billion dollars with only 3 games on the market, and will be growing since I’m sure there are many people who have yet to get a copy or waiting till around Christmas for the 360 console or free GoW3 present.
