Generation Rewind 06: Gears Of War

Generation Rewind is back with another look at some of highs and lows of the past decade of gaming.

Episode 6 sends us way back, the beginning of the Xbox 360’s life, to 2006, when the console was very young. This year saw Google start it’s world domination with the $1.6bn purchase of YouTube, Bird Flu was rampant and Apple sold it’s billionth song on iTunes. Good times.

Back then Microsoft didn’t have a great deal of competition in the console market, the PS3 was yet to come out in Europe and Nintendo’s Wii was a few months off release. This was a great time for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft were working hard with a number of developers to get some new franchises off to a great start of this new generation of consoles.

One of these developers was Epic Games, well known for their creation of the Unreal Engine, now a must for many developers. Outside of Unreal though their big budget franchises were scarce.

That was until Gears Of War.
