A cynic would accuse ratings boards of restricting information, but considering how many details about a game have leaked from public ratings in the past, one can't say they're that restrictive. This time, it's the turn of Gears of War 2 to have its contents revealed, as the BBFC has made all of the bonus disc's details public.
God bless the obsessive compulsives who troll ratings board Web sites, hitting F5 twenty four hours a day to find the latest fresh intel. I really can't fathom that level of dedication to knowing things about videogames, but I thank those lifeless souls willing to put in such legwork for the rest of us to enjoy.
Anyway, hit the jump for the BBFC's bean spilling.
