Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition Priced: Hide Your Wallets
A few big-name titles have been delayed until 2010, so perhaps that will lessen the strain on your wallet. And with less strain, you might want to go whole hog on one of the hottest titles of the generation.
When Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling officially unboxed the super special Prestige edition for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, we learned of a "Behind the Lines" art book, a steel case for the game, a voucher for the original Call of Duty that will be on the PSN/XBLA (full online support included) and, oh yeah, night-vision goggles. Of course, everyone wanted to know how much this hefty package would cost...well, not surprisingly, it's gonna be pricey. But if you've got the cash and the desire, you can drop the requisite $149.99 when the time comes this November. Because it has a date assigned to it - November 10 - you can probably pre-order the bundle at either GameStop or Amazon.com, although unless you're a die-hard follower of the series, you'll likely balk at that price. We know there are millions who continue to play the original Modern Warfare online, and the game will most certainly sell many millions, too. However, with the holidays fairly well packed with quality releases and the country having not quite yanked itself completely free of the recession, it may be difficult to convince consumers. After all, you're talking about one game that would cost half the price of a PlayStation 3...well, you know, provided that $100 discount comes into effect before November.
But hey, maybe it would make for a nice Christmas present. Perhaps somebody owes you a big favor. Maybe you have a birthday around that time and you've got an extra generous spouse or girlfriend. Who knows? Don't you want your own pair of fully functional night-vision goggles?
