Epic Games' huge dude shooter Gears of War has been added to the list of Xbox 360 games available "on demand," in the unlikely event that you don't already have the seminal third-person chainsaw and shoot 'em up.

The damage is $19.99 USD, more or less in your currency, and takes an impressive 6 GB worth of hard drive space. That's the one potential snag in this digital distribution wonderland isn't it? I mean, I like to have an extra 20 GB worth of extra space, in case of emergency. But, hey, Gears of War is a fun bit of violence and it sure does look nice, so if you prefer your games distributed this way, have at it.
