Gears of War 3 officially launched on September 20, but the celebrations started on September 19 in the Best Buy Theater in NYC's Times Square.

We learned some very interesting things about Cliffy B's experiences in his long tenure in the industry. Check out the video to watch the charismatic developer chat with us about this and more.
