    Default Gears of War 2 to be released Nation Wide on November 9th?

    http://gearsofwar.com/gearsofwarcom/index.html

    If you look at the properties, or save the image, you get this

    033-116-117-126-071
    If you run it through an ASCII Table, you get...

    ESC NOV 9
    Wierd name for an image, right? ''ESCAPE NOVEMBER 9th''.. (ESC Is the escape key on the keyboard, in case you didn't get it). Gears of War 2 may come 11/9!

    Most stores had it listed as november 1st, so november 9th is actually really believable

    Guess we'll find out come E3

    (Just noticed this being discussed also in this topic: http://gearsforums.epicgames.com/sho...=616684&page=2)

    As I said in the LocustQueen's thread. ESC Makes more sense as an acronym

    "Everything Starts, Come November 9th."
    OR
    "Evacuation Starts, Come November 9th".
    Cause The Locust already Emerged so the E could be Evacuation cause Cliff did say that the Coalition is trying to evacuate the out lying cities. Those two make more sense than Escape Nov 9th.

    Does it matter? The underlaying message is STILL That we can purchase and play Gears of War 2 starting November 9th

    As I posted in the main thread about this, I think it's pure coincidence my friends. November 9th is a Sunday, meaning it is impossible for it to be a ship date or a release date.

    I bet Epic is laughing at everyone becuase we are making all of this up in our heads. Or maybe not....

    I would not be laughing if Epic came out and told us that we are crazy and november 9th was just some sick joke. I would possible be crying, unless they release it earlier.

    Super Smash Brothers Brawl came out on a Sunday.

    Gears of War 1 came out on a Sunday too, or so I read on the first page.

    It's not uheard of.

    Gears of War 1 did NOT come out on a Sunday. It was November 16th in the UK (a Friday) and November 7th in the US (a Wednesday).

    While Super Smash Brothers Brawl did release on a Sunday in the US, it's one of pretty much zero games to do so. And I highly doubt Microsoft would do that strategy since they have never done it before, even with their big monster title Halo 3.

    I'm not saying this has no meaning, but I don't think it's the release date. Maybe it's the release WEEK (week beginning Nov 7th). Who knows!

    November 7th was a Wednesday. So this is fact I kid. I'm not saying it's not to do with the release, but I highly, HIGHLY doubt it's a Sunday release. Maybe I'll be proved wrong this Monday. Who knows! I'm just saying it's super unlikely to be the ACTUAL release date.

    I sent it into xbox360fanboy.com and they were the first to post it up there and I had gave credit to Dark Infinity but they didn't include it in there, they only gave me credit . Sorry dark, I do have the original email if y'all dont believe that I gave him credit either.

    I believe you, just figures that Major sites thank the person who submitted the info and not who actually found it and figured it out.

    At least they gave someone credit. Some places mention the Epic Game Forums as the source. I really don't care all that much but if they give you more than a cookie I want my cut.

    It was actually Tuesday, which is a normal ship day (It was Wednesday in 2007).
    I've never actually played Gears of War. All details of the game are being relayed from an IM conversation with someone who does.

    I don't see the problem with a sunday realease and besides Gears is M$'s current MONSTER so I wouldn't be surprised if EPIC realeased it whenever they want

    How about the fact internet preorders wouldn't be able to be delivered on the same day for starters? It just makes absolutely no sense.

    Everywhere is mentioning it's possible because its spread around the net from this thread. I just think it's highly unlikely Microsoft would release on a Sunday - it would ruin online preorders which many of us like to do. Think about it - they couldn't ask them to send it so it got to you early since then the release date should be Saturday to be fair to everyone - and they can't wait for it to be shipped for a Monday because then online preorders have to wait a day.

    I just really can't imagine that situation being a good choice. Sure, it's possible, but I just think it's majorly unlikely. Look at GTA4. They managed a worldwide simultaneous release on a Tuesday, the normal shipping day for a game in the US and different from the UK normal release day (Friday). If anything, I think we'd see a similar situation with Gears.

    I just hope this time there isn't over a week delay on Europe getting the game, which was downright nasty. In fact, it'll be downright nasty if there is any sort of delay, even a day is too much. I should be able to play a blockbuster title the same day as anyone else, regardless of country. What if I want to co-op the game with an American friend on launch day? He's sure not going to wait a day (pssht, I wouldn't either, even for money) and why should he?

    I really hope if it is a true simultaneous release this time ala GTA4.

    So I signed up over at GearheadsOfWar.com so I could make some comments as well. It thinks I'm logged in because it has a logout button. But it won't let me post anything because I have to login first?

    Say it with me WTF?
