Gears of War 3 Limited Edition (Xbox 360) for Only $2.99!

Though definitely not a rare title whatsoever, this Gears of War 3 Limited Edition I found in a local department store’s bargain bin is easily one of the better deals I’ve found outside of a thrift store in quite a while.

Though the outer box has some damage from sticker residue, the inner box is in fantastic condition – surprising as it was sitting at the bottom of a metal bin, below a few dozen pounds of the worst Nintendo DS shovelware I’ve ever seen. I would be surprised if anyone had ever dug all the way down to the bottom of the pile.

The inner box featuring the goofy metal “gear” that has something to do with Adam Fenix, whoever that is.

Dr. Adam Fenix – For Service to Humanity. I confess, I’m not really a Gears of War fan so I have no idea who Adam Fenix is/was, nor did I know that he was a doctor. There’s an Xbox Live code on the back, along with some gibberish about “The Coalition of…” something or other. I’ve not redeemed the code so I’ve no idea what it’s for.

The game disc case is clear rather than the usual Xbox 360 green and sits on a blue flag with a (you guessed it) gear on it.

In the case itself are the GoW 3 disc, some stickers, and an insert that will let me download the aforementioned Dr. Adam Fenix for online multiplayer.

A slightly closer look at the flag. I wonder how many people have actually unfolded this thing and hung it on their walls.

Finally, a look at the back of the box. I’m not sure if it’s much different than the standard version of the game as I don’t have a boxed copy of it, only digital (and I only have that because it was free with the Xbox One GoW Remaster), which I rather liked, but not enough to finish it.

Three bucks!

Not bad at all if I do say so myself. Similar condition box sets go for about $30 on Amazon, which is way too much for such a common game, regardless of the included gear paperweight.
