Do you need help making a poll? I'm pretty sure you can still add one...

Anyways, Epic Edition for me. :)

Console edition. Kind of need a new console anyways because my current unit is on it's last legs. Also, getting 2 of the "new & improved" controller and a 320GB hard drive. It's a hard to beat deal...

I am sad that I won't get the COG flag and Octus medal, but I guess I'll survive without them. I doubt the wife will let me hang them in the living room anyways. LOL

i might get the controller too since i've been needing a second xbox controller for ages because when ever friends come round, never get to do co-op or anything it sucks. i wont buy in until after sept 20th because i dont want to suddenly find out i went over budget by buying the controller too.

Honestly, from the reviews I've read, I want it just for the D-pad alone. Gears is a game that requires a lot of D-pad use (unless you never change weapons... ;)). So getting the improved pad makes a difference to me. I have definitely died a few "what do you mean I'm still holding [insert weapon here]" deaths. I hope to avoid those in Gears 3.

what do u mean it blows? Epic edition isn't US only, it's available in the UK and australia too.

edit: steel book edition blows, it's just the normal game in a different casing, no other extras.

Gettin Epic & The Console

i'd get the console if i could, but i would also get it with the epic edition, not alone. want that statue.

edit: i'm gonna get the controller now on top of the Epic edition and retro lancer. come into some money recently which will buy me that controller. i might go out tomorrow and get one tomorrow. giving the code away to a friend.

I'm getting the regular edition and the controller because I want the IO skins from the EE but I don't want to spend the extra $30 on adam and a statue that I don't want.

Would have got the Epic Edition, but I honestly don't have that much money to go towards it, considering all the other awesome games coming out this year.

So, I went with the Limited :)

I am still torn between getting the normal edition or a whole new console. I need new controllers and want a bigger hdd (120 gb now).... but it's a good chunk of change and major vet bills have been putting a burden on my credit card lately.

Still undecided for now.

Regular edition for me. I'm fine with it and found a good pre-order deal. There's few games out there that are LE buys for me.

Got to use the new Gears controller at Toronto FanFest this past weekend with Horde 2.0, bloody nice!

What, that atrocity? Hell no! :D

What I mean is F1 2011, Halo Anniversary and AC: Revelations. I would have also got Skyrim, Forza 4 and Saints Row 3 if I had more money, but alas, I don't :(

(And please, no-one hate me because I'm not getting Skyrim day 1. It was a hard choice, but I figured I would get the most enjoyment out of the games I chose. I will get Skyrim eventually though.)

Picking up the Epic edition and literally paid it all in full yesterday evening. First time I'm picking up a special edition of any of the Gears games, but this one is so chalk full of stuff I couldn't resist. May not have my veteran gear yet, but at least I know I'll have my Gold Lancer and Hammerburst transfer over from Gears 2.

Picking up the Epic Edition. I wanted to do the retro lancer bundle, but we only get regular colors, I want a gold one.

Limited edition, for me I had to atleast bump up from regular as it's the end of the trilogy but I couldn't afford epic with the amount of games I'm looking forward to this year.

Epic and the Console. Then I'm broke. Luckily, I've already paid in full all of the games I plan on buying this year. Which, are few (This, Halo, & Arkham City Collector's Editon). But the rest can wait for the inevitable price drops.

I need a new one anyways, all three of my old ones are on the way out (Doing the annoying 'Left Analogue stick always pointing slightly left' thing -__-)

why would u want an action figure when u've got the marcus statue?

edit: in my eyes, it defeats the idea of action figures as it makes a better ornemant than any of them for obvious reasons.

originally i was going to get the console and epic edition but i just cant afford both which would be 370 so i settled for the console. Ive still got my original 2005 release day 20gb console. i can install 1 game at a time to the harddrive and im constantly deleting stuff to make way for new demos etc Im planning on buying the statue off of ebay (some idiot will be selling theres) as it looks fucking awesome! :Bounce:

Console edition for the win. Was gonna get Epic but then I saw console includes all the exclusive DLC. This is good because even though I wanted the Epic Edition I need a new console because my 250 GB hard drive is full.

Well, since there is no option for picking more than one...We are getting the Console and the Epic Editions...Been trying to preorder the Retro Lancer ever since it was first listed too, but our gamestop is retarded and wouldn't let me preorder it and their website is retarded and wouldn't let the order go through(several tries on both locations) and now it shows unavailable altogether...:mad:
