But dude, guess what? Check this out:
"The launch of “Gears of War 3” on Sept. 20 is still a few weeks away, but Microsoft and Epic Games are already announcing that there’s more to come by the way of multiple game add-ons for the year’s biggest blockbuster. Revealed today, the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass entitles you to the first four installments of downloadable content that will roll out over the course of the next year, with the first releasing this November.
Adding hours of campaign and multiplayer mayhem, these game add-ons will be must-haves for any “Gears” fan, and the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass is your ticket to getting them at a discount the day they release. Available Sept. 20 for 2400 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, the season pass represents a 33 percent savings versus purchasing the add-ons individually, and also includes an exclusive Liquid Metal Weapon Set."
So for $30, you can basically pre-order DLC that hasn't come out yet for a game that hasn't come out yet. Sheesh. Being the sucker that I am though, I'll probably buy it because I don't want to be the guy without the new maps. I did that with Gears 2 & just waited for the All Fronts Collection. Sure, I saved a few bucks, but had to go a while with just the shipped maps while my friends dogged on me for not having the new maps to play Horde on.
