  • Gears of War 3: Epic Edition will not be available in South Africa

    It has been officially confirmed by Microsoft that Gears of War 3 Epic Edition will not be available in South Africa as well as few other regions, all thanks to some exclusivity deal signed with Gamestop in the U.S.

    Microsoft told "LazyGamer":

    SA will , unfortunately, not be getting the EPIC edition of GOW3. An exclusive deal was signed overseas, and a few markets had to give back their allocations to allow for it to happen.

    I have been in touch with the retailers to remove their listings, so that it no longer becomes an issue of false advertising – and anyone who has preordered already, will receive an additional limited edition item.

    However, they will purchase Limited Edition, and not Epic as desired – there is just nothing we can do about it I am afraid.

    Hope that clears it up,
