Gears of War 3 Locking up Xbox 360s, Split-screen Possible Source

Even though it’s been out for a few weeks, Gears of War 3 players are reporting that the title is freezing the hardware entirely. The forums over at Epic are hot with frustrated players, Epic quick to respond to the complaints with a survey to squeeze out the source of the grievances.

Many of the questions posed revolve around split-screen co-op, and the answers as well. In the interm, while looking for a fix, Epic has issued a statement:

“Getting this resolved is a priority for Epic. We are collecting information internally, sourcing as much as possible from the community and exploring potential fixes. We do not have any recommendations to share with players just yet.”

If you’re having this issue, the best thing to do is hop over to Epic and tell them what’s happening. That will lead to a speedier fix, hopefully before that first DLC pack launches in November. That would be awkward.
