THE BUZZ: Microsoft has announced that Gears of War 3 sold more than 3 million copies during its first week of sales, with the publisher naming it “the biggest game of 2011.”

Gears of War 3 is now officially the first Xbox 360 exclusive franchise to pass the $1 Billion sales mark. The game has also managed to pick up more than 50 perfect review scores making it the biggest Xbox 360 exclusive of the year.

EGM’s TAKE: Gears of War deserves all of the praise it receives, we love it.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
