My thoughts exactly. Gears is such a different experience on-line then Halo. Those who are playing Gears will continue playing. Also, I think the latest expansion pack will be a free download in September so you should have a new crop of interested players in a few weeks.
I actually didn't care for Gears MP. It seemed like every game I played had the same formula: sprint to power weapon, duke it out there, team that obtains power weapon, wins. Also, I didn't like no respawns or the lack of gametypes and customizability. Just my 2 cents.
