See you in September! Gears of War 3 Beta Wraps up.

At first you may have noticed that, unless you had purchased Bulletstorm, it was a little bit tricky to get your hands on one of the coveted Gears beta codes and many websites were running various giveaways and contests in order to best distribute them. By around May 4th players were encouraged to invite friends and by the last week, of this four week run of the beta, codes were being given away like candy; delicious, killing candy.
