THE BUZZ: Gears of War 3 is the biggest and most talked about game on the Xbox 360 right now, and the numbers certainly reflect this.

Yesterday, September 20th, Gears of War 3 launched worldwide and was enjoyed by thousands of gamers. At one point towards the end of the day there were a total of 300,000 people playing the game’s co-op campaign and online modes, and that figure doesn’t include those playing offline.

EGM’s TAKE: For a launch day these numbers are pretty impressive, and we can’t wait to see the first week sales figures when they come in.

What are your thoughts on the game so far?
