It's Gamepro. Get real. It's probably just some rumors, and they put that on the cover in the hopes of increasing sales.

Seriously. If they the exclusive debut of the game, I find it hard to believe they'd give R6:Vegas the cover.

Meh. If they actually had any info, there's no way in hell the cover picture would be Rainbow Six. I think they just have some rumors and decided to put it on the cover to sell copies of the magazine.

Edit: Huh, beaten. You read my mind?!

Misleading thread title. The cover story is Vegas 2. Gears is only a special report, who knows what info they actually have. Probably less than Famitsu's FFXIII reports..

Basically. I bought a UK 360 magazine with 'hot new Alan Wake info' last month, only to find it was 2006 info.

If they had a huge cover story for Gears of War 2 then that would cover the entire front page and not Rainbow Six 2. They probably just searched NeoGAF, saw a few comments and wrote a paragraph long segment about those comments and then stuck the name "Gears of War 2" on the front cover to sell more issues.

Damnit! You got my hopes up for nothing. Boo!

It'll just be something like "Hey, it's exists"
I think even that is optimistic.

"Hey, it probably exists and...umm....it might be shown soon. Suckers!!"

I've seen British magazines touting Gears of War 2 news, and it amounts to little more than "We're sure CliffyB and Microsoft won't want this title laying dormant for too long".

I got my issue today, basically their saying how Gears 2, while not confirmed, should be set to get a fall 2008 release because Microsoft wants it to be out. And they stated that there should be some small changes like good matchmaking and other things... mostly things we already assumed.

RS:V2 wootage

Gears was amazing, but I got more playtime out of Terrorist Hunt mode in RS:V. The shooter fan in me is overwhelmed with awesomeness from every direction.

Well, that was disappointing.

I wonder if we'll see anything at GDC.

Unless another mag has the cover story, and they just give little details inside. Never know.

But it's about time that epic will release screenshots of gears of war 2, because insomniac showed a lot of screens of resistance 2.

I'm not too sure because I really haven't kept up with R6V2 too much, but it's basically showing all of the screen shots that have been posted on here before and it talks about the weapons.

Gamepro still exist?

do they still use the crazy face review system?
Nah, they now use the 4.5-5.0 scale. They tend to include large screenshots, and a rambling, pathetic excuse for a review. That's all you need to know.
