Gears of War 2 sells two million copies

Well folks, it’s finally happened (after about five days). Who would’ve thought that Gears of War 2, one of the most anticipated games of the year, would have its sales through the roof?! Even though it’s only been out for less than a week, Microsoft officials have stated that Gears of War 2 has already sold two million copies. Adding to this, the officials have also said that out of the two million, 1.5 million have already been played on Xbox Live. Although these sales are incredible, I wonder… who is actually surprised by these stats?
