New Gears of War Deal Reminds Us That The Price of Games No Longer Makes Sense

The first wave of "launch" copies of March 19th's $60 Gears of War: Judgment will come bundled with a bonus $19.99 "value", according to a Microsoft press release e-mailed this morning.

That "value"?

A download code for the original Gears of War, which the company says "more than half" of the players of the last Gears game—Gears of War 3—didn't play. That late-2006 game launched for $60 and goes for $19.99 if you want to download it to your Xbox 360 now.

It's nice to get a free game when buying another game, right? Even if there's a strong chance that nearly half the people buying this new game probably already played it. After all, that's as valid a way to interpret Microsoft's research stat as Microsoft's way, no?

So what's a game that maybe nearly half of the Gears faithful already played really worth? Twenty bucks? Zero bucks (complete with an order for the $60 Judgment)?

It's notable that Microsoft is even trying to sell the original five year old Gears for $20 these days. Who thinks that's a good price for a game that has enjoyed two iterative sequels and is about to get a third? On Steam, on PSN, games that old often go for far less. And over at GameStop, you can buy the original Gears of War, on a disc, for a scant.... $2.99. What a bargain!

Get 1600MSP and 3 Months Xbox Live when you pre-order Judgment (USA & Canada only!)

That's awesome.  However it looks like the USA only gets 1600 MSP.  Still an awesome deal.

I've posted the full list of qualifying games HERE.   :)

Thank god for that!

Looks like an easy but time consuming 1000 to be fair, no more level 100 so i'm guessing the XP gaps up to Level 50 might be pretty big, Gears 2 style I hope!   8)

The Declassified Missions on Insane might take a while but if 4 of us get together I reckon they'll be a breeze.   :)
