Well I never like telling people to shell out 400 bucks based on my opinion because everyone has their own tastes, but let's put it this way. Most around here know that before Gears came out I had every intention of getting a PS3 and a Wii and selling my 360. The only reason I owned a 360 was because I got an HDTV and wanted some HD Gaming to go with it and was going to use the 360 until the PS3 came out. I prefered to play my shooter games on the PC with a keyboard/mouse and most of the 360's big games were FPSs.
Needless to say, once I picked up Gears I totally switched my stance and am now firmly in the 360's court with little to no interest in the PS3 for gaming, now keeping my run going of never owning a console from the same company in back to back generations (NES, Genesis, N64, PS2, 360).
Also, I graduated and got a 9-6 job and was finally starting to weed out videogames and get responsible, actually going to sleep at 11 or so so I wasn't tired at work the next day. Since I got Gears however, I generally find myself finally putting the controller down at 2:30 once again and waking up less than 5 hours later. But it's worth it.

But if I could make one upgrade, it would be to make it from 1 v 1 all the way up to 8 v 8 and just make the 8 v 8 game on bigger maps.
I had the same worry before getting the game, especially since I was used to PC games with 20-32 players in a server at a time. Really though I think Gears' style is perfect with 4v4. It's a slower type tactical game where most kills come at pretty close range. Having more than 4v4 would turn a bit chaotic and would make for some chaotic close-range battles that just have way too many people. Having 4 people on your team is very manageable talking over the mic and coming up with strategies and adjusting to what the other team is doing, helping revive squadmates when they go down even if it's not right next to you, etc.
