by Victor ‘rOgue’ Vieira


Gears of War 2 DLC –Was going to be‘Dark Corners’ on the Live Marketplace and the retail pack: ‘The All Fronts Collection’. This has caused such a stir because of DLC cost in MS points, that it’s resulted in the scrapping of the retail pack.

The Dark Corners DLC Pack included seven maps and an extra campaign chapter was originally going to be priced at 1600 MS points. Due to many complaints from those who purchased the current map packs available to download because they were to be included on the retail ‘All Fronts Collection’ for free, ‘Dark Corners’ will now be priced at 1200 MS Points.

The retail pack containing every piece of downloadable content was going to be released on July 28th for $19.99 US / £14.99 UK / €19.99 EU. So every single piece of DLC included was going to be priced around the same as just ‘Dark Corners’ on the Marketplace – so it was a ‘score’ for those that had not spent a MS point yet, which seemed to outrage the Gears fans that bought everything as soon as it was available.
