I wasn't planning on buying Gears 3 when it was released. I wanted to save my money for November. But this is very tempting. If I were to buy this though, I would definitely be selling a couple consoles to get it. I have 5 right now and really don't need a sixth(hell I really only need two maybe 3!) but it looks awesome in my opinion and I really don't like Gears that much.

Thoughts?

Yeah just saw this on Joystiq. Console looks very sexy and very tempting. And a 320gb Hard drive?!? Damn you Microsoft/Epic!!! Isn't $250 for the Retro Lancer and Epic Edition enough??? Now your tempting me with this? Guess I will be spending more on Gears 3 then I will during the month of November. Guess I will be taking advantage of that 50% extra trade in at gamestop this week.

Can we use a link cable to transfer our saves from our current slim models?

I hope they announce what the sounds are. Regardless, I'll probably be snagging this up. That is a GREAT deal.

OOohhhh mmmyyyy goooodddddd... i want it so bad haha..

But i currently have the Halo Reach console... as well as the Epic Edition and Replica Lancer on preoder. As much as i want it, i dont want to spend upwards of $1000 just for a different looking console and a special edition of a game...

but at the same time... i bought legendary edition reach and reach console.. D:!!!!!!

BUT IT LOOKS SOOOO MUCH COOOLER THEN THE REACH CONSOLE D: ...

That console does look quite sick! If you're not that into Gears then maybe give it a miss and save your cash for something that really makes you want it.

Yep, going to cancel my Epic Edition pre-order and get this instead. I need a bigger hard drive, and I feel that my current 360 is on the way out soon anyway, plus this comes with the LE and EE content. I'm sold!

How can you be on a xbox 360 site looking at awesome gears consoles and say you want a Nintendo 3DS ?!? - Madness!! lol

I think it looks great but my xbox is fine thank yee very much. I would however gladly pay 40-50 pound for the gears controller (or however much they are these days?)

I'm currently buying the epic edition plus the lancer so that totals around $240 and i think this is probably the best looking special edition xbox to date an I think i'm going to have to get it... that or at least one of the sexiest controllers.

Anyone know if you will still get the store exclusive pre-order skin by pre-ordering the console instead of just the game.

I talked to a Gamestop employee myself, and he said that even if it didn't come packaged this way, they could just print you out a code, which is what I figured. I'm more concerned about Best Buy and Walmart since these two stores have the skins I like best, and I don't think they can just print out pre-order codes like that.

Yea I wouldn't buy the Gears console at walmart or Bestbuy just because the Employees are so lost and don't know anything about the gaming industry.

Just pre-ordered mine today. I have the old model and figured now would be the best time to move on up to the new model. Was also thinking if they would make one for ME3 and or MW3. But the GOW logo was too much for me to pass this up. Like a moth to the flame............

Yea I can't wait!! I doubt they make a MW3 console, because they always make a console for a game that is the most anticipated(I probably spelled that wrong but oh well lol).

Once they see how well the GOW console does I'm sure someone somewhere at MS or IW will propose that they do this. Could be wrong though so don't quote me on this.

Then just get the console, much better of a deal if you ask me, mostly because I was going to buy one of the new controllers with the new dpad to use on mortal kombat anyways.

If I end up buying this bundle, I'll have to sell my old one to help finance the purchase.

I'm trading in my Halo Reach console in on this. I wish that I could keep my Reach console, but unfortunately I can't. I like my Reach console, but compared to the Gears 3 console, the Reach console is so plain Jane.

It really sucks that everywhere else pretty much can pre-order this already and it hasn't been announced where in the u.k is even stocking it yet :(

I was trying to butter up my boss to tell me if we were having it (be hella stupid not to) and he honestly didn't know!! :(

WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT WANT!!!!!!!!! Will look sweet next to my res evil console :)

Sucks that staff discount only applies as 5% to consoles..meh. Better than nothing :)

The console looks pretty cool, and I'm a die hard gears fan. But i will not be purchasing the special console simply because it just seems like a big waste of $400 and i don't personally need it.

To many great titles coming out this year no way I can dish out money towards this console (even though it looks sick). I already have a slim so if I didn't I would have probably purchased...

Didn't you hear, September 20th is the new Christmas.

OT: The console looks amazing, but I'm spending 220 on Gears 3 as it is. If, once I've sold my three extra copies of the game that I'm getting for the character skins, the console is still available I'll be picking it up ASAP. But for now, unfortunately, I am forced to pass.
