Gears Of War 2 LE, LittleBigPlanet and Other Titles Cheap!

320w ago - I like getting my video games cheaper. Especially when I don't have to wait for three months till everyone else doesn't care about the game.

It looks like ToysRUs is trying to get an upper hand on pre-orders this year with Gears of War 2. The limited edition is listed on the site for $59.99 instead of the regular $69.99 found at many other retailers.

If you do add the shipping costs to the order, and the possibility of the retailer receiving the game late then you may have a problem, but considering the site is selling it for 59.99 I don't see why they wouldn't sell it for 10 dollars less at their stores which would eliminate the shipping problem.

On the other hand, Amazon Canada has been slashing off $5-6 price tags on many upcoming games such as LittleBigPlanet, Dead Space, and Fallout 3. Even though the $5 dollar difference doesn't seem like a big deal, you have to realize that these products are available for free shipping meaning in this scenario you actually save money....

323w ago - A bullish Microsoft has declared it's happy to go toe-to-toe with rival Sony products, as the two companies prepare for another bloody battle at retail this Christmas.

Speaking exclusively to GamesIndustry.biz, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Games Studios, has declared that first-party publishing has always been about exclusives, and he's confident his titles can better anything his bitter rivals at Sony can turn out.

"Let's start from the beginning of both consoles - PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 - which first party has had more success on their own platform? We have Gears, Halo, Forza, we're continuing to push existing IP while bringing new IP to market. I'll line up against Sony's first party any day," offered Spencer in the first part of an interview published today.

Despite closing internal studios such as Ensemble and FASA, Spencer says the company has spent the neccesary time building franchises, allowing for a yearly roll-out of exclusive, triple-A product every Christmas season.

"Now the news, when you're talking about something like Ensemble, that's us building that franchise pipeline that you've seen come to market for the last three Holidays. I remember last E3, sitting there, people looking...
