The Hut have certainly outdone themselves with this one. A tenner is all they are asking for in their latest price cut, bringing down the latest instalment of Epic’s TPS to its lowest price yet. A difference of £3 separates it from retail partner Zavvi
Overall, Gears of War 3 was a suitable send-off for Marcus Phoenix and the rest of Delta Squad, containing refined controls, an entertaining single player campaign and a robust multiplayer suite in one package. If you have yet to experience this one, at £10 it’s something of a bargain. Thanks to tinodz @ HUKD!
This one's packed full of action, it's great to look at, and the story behind this instalment of the series is the best yet! It's hard not to enjoy this one whether you're charging around the campaign or joining a couple of friends for a chaotic multiplayer battle. The Hut are currently parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £19.95, which should make you a saving of just over £2.50 on the next best offer coming in from Cool Shop UK. Thanks to DEALofaLifetime @ HUKD.
The Hut no longer have the lowest price for Gears 3, as Simply Games have undercut them by over a quid. One of the standout titles of last year, leading the way in terms of sheer content overload, Gears 3 proved a fitting finale to Fenix and Chums' trilogy of TPS action.
Zavvi have brought down the price of the third entry in the Gears of War series down below the magic £20 mark, which is the cheapest the game has fallen to. Not only that, but there’s a saving of nearly a fiver over the next best offer from ShopTo.

I'm not the biggest Gears Of War fan in the world, but I can recognise I good game when I see one! As you'd expect from the previous games this instalment of the series is action packed and has a pretty good story behind it. Also, it's great to look at and has an enthralling multiplayer. Grainger Games are parting with the limited collector's edition version of the game for £29.99, which should save you about £8 on the next best offers out there. Thanks to ettienem1001 @ HUKD.
If you're a Gears Of War fan then you might want to pick up a limited edition copy of the latest instalment of the series instead of the bog standard edition, seeing as it comes with a few little extra bits and pieces. The story behind Gears Of War 3's the best to date, the multiplayer is highly addictive and thoroughly engrossing, and it looks stunning. Game are parting with copies for £27.99, which'll make you a saving of £2 on the next best offer coming in from Gamestation. Thanks to Edward_Nigma @ HUKD.
I'm not the biggest Gears Of War fan, I never really got swept up in all the hype, but I can appreciate a good game when I see one and this instalment of the series looks great, has a brilliant story, and the multiplayer's an absolute joy. If you want a more detailed breakdown of this one's highs and lows, then you should take a look at Felix 's review. Zavvi are parting with copies of the game for £24.96, which'll make you a saving of almost £3 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. Thanks to TheMetalMan @ HUKD.
I'll be honest with you straight from the start I'm not really a big Gears Of War fan, so if you want all the nitty gritty details it's probably worth checking out Felix's review. The campaign's a fairly decent length, the multiplayer's great fun, and it's easy on the eyes. The limited edition also comes with an Octus Award Bow with Octus Service Medal, an Exclusive Unlockable Adam Fenix Multiplayer Character, a fabric COG Flag, and The personal effects of Adam Fenix. Game are parting with copies for £29.99, which'll make you a saving of around £13 on the next best offer. Thanks to adam1998 @ HUKD.
Felix is currently chainsawing his way through Gears 3's review build in order to bring you our verdict, but for now, I can safely tell you that it's going to be good. If you're a fan of the series, you'll be in for a masterful campaign, great pacing and a multiplayer mode that actually works. I'd suggest trying out 1 and 2 before getting involved with this one, though.
Best Buy (who are run by The Hut group, I believe) are currently charging £32.99 for an 11th hour preorder, which is pretty good going by our reckoning.
If you played the Gears 3 beta, you undoubtedly earned yourself a few weapon skins. I was particularly fond of the 'Flaming' variant, which gave your weapons a wonderful molten glow. A whole range of unlockable skins can be found in the full game, from 'Gold' variants to 'Onyx' options, that require you perform a set number of kills or executions before they can be unlocked.
However, if you're in the mood for a quicker albeit more expensive cosmetic upgrade, Epic have announced 21 premium skins will be available upon release to download for an as yet unspecified price. These range from standard visual switches like Deadly Cute (hot pink gradient) and Garish (flower print), to the more visually extravagant Thunderstorm and Team Pulse (red/blue depending on team). Me, I'll be opting for a Tiger Stripe skin. Because nothing's more deadly than a gun painted like a tiger. [MTV]
