After the pretty much unexpected "OK" from the German ratings board USK for the third Gears of War, there now seems to be a possibility to bring the first two games of the popular franchise to Germany too. According to the Epic Studios boss Mike Capps, Microsoft now is looking into releasing the first two games in Germany, even though they are already indexed. The fact that Gears of War 3 is going to have a German release certainly took their marketing department by surprise, but they still managed to have a presence at gamescom at least.

Capps thinks it would be amazing if they could bring the first two games over to Germany, maybe as part of a compilation. While this is certainly are great news for German gamers, I kind of doubt it will be a huge commercial success, since most German gamers will have gotten their hands on the title by importing it from the United Kingdom or Austria. But even then, it would be the first time for them to have access to the full multiplayer experience, since it is impossible for them to buy the map packs on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
