Gears of War 3 sells 3 million copies Epic Game's blockbuster title Gears of War 3 has sold 3 million copies in just its first week of sales.
An exclusive for the Xbox 360, the game is the finale of a trilogy that has been massively popular for the console.

Says Microsoft of the milestone:

Gears of War 3 has set the bar as the top game launch of the year, kicking off the biggest holiday in Xbox history with a bang. While we don't share sales projections, we're really happy with the results thus far and are kicking off what promises to be our biggest holiday yet in Xbox history.


The companies will also continue their exclusive relationship into the future, possibly with a Kinect title.

Concludes Microsoft:

We've enjoyed a terrific partnership with Epic Games throughout the 'Gears of War' trilogy, and the success of the franchise is a testament to the strength of that relationship and our work together. We look forward to working with Epic in the future.

3 Million copies week one for an exclusive title is pretty a good number.
