An Ipsos study of United Kingdom and United States gamers has revealed that, across both the British and American market, Gears of War 3 is the most anticipated game of the year. There were some considerable differences between the two markets, but Gears remained uniformly at the top spot.

Killzone 3 was the second most anticipated game in the UK, but it ranked seventh in the US. American gamers instead have Mortal Kombat as their second most wanted. Some of the wilder disparities include Crysis 2, ranked 14 in the UK but 46 in the US, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which is America's fourth most wanted, but comes in at 25 in the UK. 

It's an interesting little chart that shows the potentially different mindset between two very similar sets of gamers. Whatever it is, it's great news for Gears of War 3, which should do incredibly well in both markets. No surprises there.

It's a good thing Gears of War: Tactics was canceled

A few years back, it was repeatedly rumored that Gears of War would get a spinoff game built around Kinect. The project never came to fruition and that's seemingly for the best, if this alpha footage of Gears of War: Tactics ...more
