Gears Of War’s first two entries contained memorable single player and co-op modes that few other games could touch.

The online multiplayer for both left a lot to be desired, being riddled with balance problems and lag. Even when they were fixed, many in the community had moved on to other games. Epic is making a huge effort to insure Gears Of War 3 ships with a great multiplayer out of the box with an actual beta test this time around.

The unspoken truth of this preview video is that if they did a beta for Gears 2 as well, it might not have been unplayable shit for the first 2 months after release. Here is hoping Gears 3 might spin a little longer in the disc tray and have an online game worthy of its single player.
