Gears of War 2 hitting Games on Demand Oct. 12

Do you enjoy laying waste to hordes of locusts but hate having to pop in your Gears of War 2 disc to do so? Thankfully, that problem will soon come to an end.

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson today revealed that Epic Games’ Gears of War 2 will hit the Games on Demand full-game download hub on October 12. That’s next week! Sadly, he didn’t note if he was speaking of the regular version or the content-bundled Game of the Year edition.

No price was listed for the digital version of the game. Its current MSRP is $29.99 (that’s the Game of the Year Edition, too), so it would be nice if the Games on Demand price was close to that mark.
