Gears of War 3 ‘Season Pass,’ props on sale todayNews
Today on the Xbox Marketplace there is a holiday promotion that covers Gears of War 3, with discounts not only on in-game content, but at least one of the soon-to-be-discontinued Avatar props. So, I’d keep an eye out to snag this before you can no longer have it.
The highlight of today’s deal, though is the Gears of War 3 “Season Pass,” which grants access to four DLC packs (two already available, two upcoming) for 1800MSP ($22.50), which is 25 percent off of the regular price. Also, there is a 50 percent discount on the “Gears 3 Skins Launch Collection,” which also was priced today for 1800MSP.
Microsoft will discontinue “gun-like Avatar items” from the Xbox Marketplace starting on January 1st, 2012. Which means this is your last chance to get the Gears of War Gold Lancer prop. Not only at the 50 percent discount of 160MSP ($2) but forever. The Gears Boomshield prop appears to be safe from this delisting, though, and it is also available for 160MSP. So, I’d jump on this opportunity to get a classic Gears Avatar item for super cheap, and before it is banned completely on January 1st.
