Tis the season….and it seems like gamers are showing their spending power in full force as Microsoft have recently beamed out the good word on how well Gears Of War is doing sales wise.

Tactical shooter ’Gears of War’ has earned it’s self the crown of the fastest-selling next-gen game of 2006, along with the fastest-selling exclusive Xbox game of all time! Quite a feat!

Microsoft and Epic confirmed that the hit title has now sold over 2 million copies since its release six weeks ago, and of course Xbox Live has seen a nice boost in numbers also!

Micheal Capps, President of Epic said: “We’ve always held high hopes for ‘Gears of War,’ but we never expected such an overwhelmingly positive response from critics and gamers all over the world…”

No doubt Microsoft is looking towards many more copies being sold, especially in the final run up to Christmas, and deservedly so!
