Bioware Pokes Fun At MW2 Prestige Edition Unboxing

Infinity Ward turned a lot of heads when they officially revealed that unbelievable Prestige Edition for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, although its extravagance caught a bit of flack from gamers.

Well, developers are certainly allowed to poke fun at other developers, and this time, Bioware has decided to play the comedian role and release a special "unboxing" video of their own for the upcoming Dragon Age: Origins. You can view it over at Examiner.com, and it's absolutely worth seeing. At first, it actually appears to be legit but as things progress, hilarity ensues. Why more than one copy? Well, because you can never have enough dragons, of course! And the capper is when she finally unveils the Dragon Age sausage, from dwarven butcher shops; "what you do with it in the dark is your own business." HA! Well, you just had to assume that something like this would be coming along, although we're a little surprised to see it come from Bioware. Based on the games they make, one might consider the team to be a bit more on the serious side, but hey, all devs have to be somewhat playful, right? ...damn, the puns are getting worse.

Well, anyway, watch it and net yourself a few laughs. And don't take it personally, Modern Warfare 2 fans; we all have to laugh at ourselves every now and then. That Prestige Edition is a little over-the-top.

Lol that almost looks real. They should have just thrown in every edition of the game instead of those two. But I wonder, maybe they'll actually take some of those ideas and make a collectors edition now?

Oh yes, we will love to have free sausage with our new copying of dragon age! Seriously, that would be funny as hell. Hopefully the grease doesn't get into the actual copy of the game. Now THAT would be funny.

I want a real person to inspect the quality of those night vision goggles, not because i plan on getting em but just to see what people are paying for.

It's a funny video. It is nice to see developers taking little nabs at each, and making bad puns whilst they are at it ;)

a little over the top?
its the most over priced POS ive ever seen.
its 40 bucks more than the MGS4 LE and that had more content and was extremly rare.
only 4 were released here in oz

Only the ending, using that "night vision"-effect, was slightly amusing. The rest was... Well... Good for them they didn't follow a career as comedy writers (or actors).

The prestige edition is completely ridiculous, I suppose its a good deal on civilian grade edtion NV goggles. Ill stick with the regular if I ever get around to follow the COD trend. Yes the game will be awesome but it will never stop!

the LE had a snake action figure and a making of MGS4 bluray disk in a special fancy polished black and clear plastic box.
if you want to get one i think there still available on ebay, or google it.
