The latest Xbox live results are staying fairly similar, with COD4 and Halo 3 leading the pack, but the interesting thing is that Gears Of War has made it back into the top 3.

The reason I find this so interesting is that I have been seeing similar results amongst gamers here in South Africa. While Gears of War had dropped off of the popularity list significantly since the release of Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4, there has been a huge increase in local gamers playing good ol’ Gears again.

With Gears of War 2 coming later this year, we have to ask, is this an international coincidence? Or are we seeing the power of the hype machine in full force? Never underestimate the power of hype.
