Microsoft announced an interesting promotion today. Each of the previous Gears of War games has had a rookie, from the Carmine family, that meets their doom over the course of the game. Whether or not this happens in the third game in the series is up to you. Starting July 29th, you can purchase one of two avatar t-shirts, one stating to save Carmine, the other for him to meet his demise. Whichever shirt sells the most is what will happen in the game.
Now before you start yelling “Money Grab!” like I almost did, all proceeds will will go to the Child’s Play charity, which if you are not familiar with is a great organization.
Lucky enough to be at Comic-Con in San Diego this week? You can grab one of these shirts in real life, at the NECA booth (#3145) for $20. I kind of hope he lives, but that seems unlikely.
