Aside from linked achievements, the Gears of War 2 panel at Comic-Con mentioned that there will be a bundle, ala Halo 3: Legendary Edition, for the game that will include a replica of the Lancer rifle. However, Joystiq reported that Microsoft denied the existence of the Lancer package, stating that the company only mentioned two editions of Gears of War 2: the standard $59.99 and limited edition for $69.99.
But is seems that the uber-Chainsaw bundle exists, as Amazon.com is confirmed to sell it exclusively to the U.S. The folks at Joystiq spoke with the online retailer and gave them a few details about the package after the cut.
- Amazon is the exclusive U.S. retailer of the GoW collector's lancer.
- Amazon will offer the lancer as a bundle with GoW 2.
- Pricing for the bundle is not yet confirmed.
- A detail page for the product bundle will go live on the site this week and if pricing is still to be confirmed at that time, customers can sign up to get an email notification for when the product is available for pre-order.
Gears of War 2 by Epic Games will be revving up in stores this November 7 exclusively for the Xbox 360.
