Videogames can be an expensive hobby, so who can blame you for wanting to get the latest title without hurting your wallet? Gears of War 3 is imminent but if you find yourself without the cash to pick it up then turn to New Street, Birmingham, UK for a cheaper alternative…if you’re committed enough that is.
Fans of the Xbox 360 exclusive franchise can go down to the New Street branch of Gamestation between 9am and 3pm on launch day to get the games iconic skull logo shaved onto their head – all for a free copy of Gears of War 3, provided you’re one of the first ten people to turn up.
Neil Ashurst, head of UK public relations for GAME, revealed the promotional event, saying “We know that gamestation customers are committed gamers and Gears of War fans are some of the most passionate out there. We wanted to give these fans a way of showing their commitment on the day Gears of War 3 launches and look forward to seeing how many fans are willing to take this ultimate hair challenge.”
Gears of War 3 – which our own Mark Fajardo praised as “no doubt the best Xbox 360 exclusive game this year” – releases in American and European territories on September 20th.
