Gears of War 3 Golden Wings Week (first week) gold skins never unlocked.

I pre-ordered Gears of War 3, bought it on 9/20 the day is was released. It was posted all over the internet on the game that when players play online during that week, they will unlock the Gold Lancer and Hammerburst. It seems like the entire Microsoft Support team and Epic Games was unaware of the first week event as non of them are able to help me. I keep getting told about achievements both when I call, or email, even though I never say the word achievement. I even reply back that I'm not having problems with achievements, yet they continue to reply back telling me about achievements.

Now I did play online several times that week on various game modes, including the main story, but the gold weapons never unlocked.

I played online with a friend, and the old weapons did unlock for him. What the hell, that isn't fair.

We both played the beta, and never unlocked gold weapons in previous Gears of War games, so the only explanation is there is a glitch on my saved game somewhere.

Why did this happen to me? Why did I have to pay full price for a game and not be able to access all the content in the game?

I guess this just enforces your point, but I didn't know about this either. Do you have a link to a site advertising this?

this skins NEVER unlocked. The first week Gear of War 3 was released, they had the golden wings week event. It was listed on the in game event calender, Epic announced it on Facebook on their page, it was also announced on the Gears of war fan page. It was listen in forums, and gaming sites all across the internet. I even seen it on Xbox.com a few times.

The event stated that to unlock the gold lancer and hammerburst, simply play an online game by 9/26. I've played several online games, the gold weapon skins never unlocked.

I played with a friend, and they unlocked for him, so a glitch in the game prevented them from unlocking on my end.
