‘Gears of War’ dropping Nov. 12

Turns out Emergence Day occurs roughtly around the PS3 launch. Via GameSpot, we have learned that Microsoft has confirmed the release date for one of the 360′s most-hyped titles, “Gears of War.” While North America gets the game Nov. 12, the UK gets it on the 17th — right smack on the release date of the PS3.

Nov. 12 falls on a Sunday, which could mean I could have a football/Gears weekend. I won’t say anymore — don’t want to jinx it.

I’m sure this’ll get discussed on AGI, so I won’t pontificate more on this until after the show.
