Now this is how you do a special edition. Activision and Infinity Ward look to be going all out for its Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 "Prestige Edition," with not only the usual accoutrements like a special casing and an art book, but also what is described by Community Manager Robert "fourzerotwo" Bowling as a "fully functioning NVGs -- night vision goggles." No idea how well they work, but it's got alternating modes and MW2 branding. That's pretty awesome, but we gotta imagine it's gonna demand a pretty penny -- this is definitely more than that $80 "collector's edition" for $80 GameStop is currently listing. You won't be able to get your actual hands on the game until November at the earliest, so in the meantime, hit up the read link to get a glimpse of the "official" unboxing.

You put the ingredients together and they discount you at the register. Remember to add an inflatable sheep. You get an extra 10 % for the advanced kit.

Looks like the super edition pack is going to cost $150.

Should I get a blow-up doll so I can use the HOV lane and get home faster,or would the sheep work? Teach me your ways oh great king of the kits.

well lets hope the ebgames is the game as play and game in the UK in that if the pre order price they offer to start with is less than the RRP they do not increase what you pay .. they take the hit for the stupid low price .. lol

More chance of them cancelling your preorder and adding an extra $50 just for the fun of it.

I don't think so . It's never happened before. So if it comes out here and they fuck up it will be the same as anything else.

when it does happen here you get an email saying the pre order price has increased but not too worry yours stays the same

I was thinking of how useful it would be to have a pair of night vision goggles around.

what a fucking rip off


While Europeans are sadly used to paying more for games, we don't think they're quite as used to paying as much as Britons are being asked to fork out for Modern Warfare 2 when it hits this holiday season.

The standard version will be priced at 55 (USD$90), making it one of, if not the most expensive regular editions of a game on record. But that's just for the standard version.

The fancy "Prestige Edition" - which includes a working set of night vision goggles - is priced at 120. That's just over $195.

If that's not bad enough, it's expected that Modern Warfare 2's price jump is just the first of many the British market will see over the coming months, as a weaker pound and higher development costs drive wholesale prices skyward.

See ? Someone MUST BE think that European are indeed richer than others in this planet. Or obedient. Take your pick.

as a weaker pound


I find this such a bullshit reason, don't know about the pound, but when the euro was way way lower than the dollar, PAL regions STILL had to pay more than US. Now things are different (euro vs dollar, higher euro ) PAL is still getting buttfucked!

darren

yeah ..

its nothing to do with the , $ EUro or what ever .. its just the publisher knowing they can take the piss with what will prob big the biggest seller of the year regardless

So they said the weaker pound was one of the reason?

So here we have a situation where the euro is in no way in a weak position and lo and behold;

We've also received word from a retail source that GameStop will carry the set exclusively in Ireland, where it will sell for 149 ($211).

Yeah that is even more than what british folks will be paying compared to Ireland, but then again it seems the one in the UK has gone up now.

UK retailer HMV has secured an exclusive on the Prestige Edition of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. (Y'know, the one with the night vision goggles.) The chain's online store confirms availability of the title on November 10 at a price of 149 ($243)
