Rumortoid: Pre-order Gears of War 2 from Best Buy, get remote controlled tank

According to a Kotaku reader and Best Buy employee, the big box retailer will be offering up a pretty sweet pre-order item for Gears of War 2 — a remote controlled tank. 

The vehicle, a “real-life” remote controlled version of the Centaur COG vehicle is supposedly only being offered up as a pre-order item through Best Buy. It looks like the pre-order program will begin starting on October 5. 

The Best Buy employee slipped the information out a recent pre-holiday meeting, and Microsoft or Epic have yet to confirm the remote controlled tank, so hold on to this as a rumor until they actually do. Speaking of which, hey Best Buy employees, we have a tips line, too!
