    Gears of War 3 Hits A Million Pre-Orders

    Today Epic Games announced that Gears of War 3 has topped one million pre-orders worldwide. This makes the game the fastest game in the history of Xbox exclusives to reach this milestone number for the company. The Gears of War 3 beta, which just ended, housed some pretty incredible numbers. Over the course of the four week beta, Gears of War 3 let 1.29 million players take the game out for a test drive.

    Epic has also released some statistics from the beta:

    - 145 different countries participated in the beta
    - 249 years worth of matches played
    - More than 11 million matches completed
    - More than 927 million kills recorded
    - More than 131 million executions performed
    - More than 23 million deaths by chainsaw
    - Nearly 23 BILLION bullets fired
    - 4.9 billion ribbons and 291M medals earned
    - 435K people earned the Beta exclusive Thrashball Cole skin to use in the retail game when it launches in September
    - 234K people earned the Beta exclusive Gold Retro Lancer to use in the retail game when it launches in September

    Gears of War 3 is still available for pre-order, and the recently announced Epic and Limited Editions have been added to the fold. The full release will launch exclusively on Xbox 360 this September 20, 2011.
