    Edge confirms with Mark Rein that Gears of War 2 has just inched past the three million mark, notably faster than Gears took to pass the same milestone.

    Meanwhile, IGN points out that Halo 3 remains king of the Xbox LIVE heap, relegating Gears 2 to the second spot. Mark Rein explains in a forum post

    Yes Halo 3 remain, also W@W overtook Gears 2. Obviously.
    Mean time COD4 will catch up, then maybe L4D. MAYBE.

    Why be so defensive over selling 3 million copies? Pathetically needy.

    Do you hear that? That's the sound of one more nail being driven into the coffin of Epic's support for the PC platform.

    Here's what bothers me the most.
    They were so full of themselves after what gears 2 really was. It's a problem with Epic Games, they're so unthoughtful about what their game really are in the end.

    Yes, I wish I hadn't.

    3 million? Most games are lucky enough to even hit 1 million, let alone 3 and yet Epic still has to act ungrateful. Curse Epic's inflated ego.

    I just wish one of the Unreal games(including the Tourny games) could do that now.
