Today, Xbox Canada announced the launch of a new contest for Gears of War 3, with some great prizes leading up to the game’s launch. The Gears of War 3 Training contest pits players against a series of missions, three in all – the first is playable now, while the other two will be opening over the next few weeks – challenging them to finish in the fastest time. The five players with the best times on all three missions will win a grand prize all-expenses paid trip to the exclusive launch party in… oh! Look at that! Right here in Toronto! The grand prize includes airfare, two nights hotel accommodations, $500 spending money and a Limited Edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360.

There are also some other great prizes available, including Microsoft Points and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. If you want to increase your chances at finishing the fastest, Xbox Canada will be posting hints in the Xbox Dashboard and its Facebook page each week. For more information or to enter the contest, go to www.gears3training.ca. The contest page also includes an exclusive partner pre-order code to get $5 off the game when you purchase it from Future Shop.
