Special editions of Modern Warfare 2 revealed

Infinity Ward have revealed the special edition packages for its upcoming game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which has become one of the most popular multi platform franchises this generation.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is being released later this year during the month of November, and as has been revealed, will be releasing in multiple editions each coming with its own set of goodies.

The first special edition that was revealed was the "Prestige" edition which will come in a rather large box holding more than a couple of items. The biggest surprise is the inclusion of night vision goggles that are apparently in full working condition, which can be displayed on a full head model included in the games box.

Also included in the "Prestige" edition is an art book full of game concept art and the game comes in a tin case, much like many other collectors editions.
Rumoured many months ago, a code will also be included that lets you download the original Call of Duty on either Microsoft's XBLA or Sony's PSN.

There will also be a "Hardened" edition of the game that will be released at the same time, it includes the game in a steal tin, the art book and also the download code for the original game.
Prices have been released for both packages, the "Prestige" edition will retail for $149.99 and "Hardened" will be far cheaper but without the goggles for $80.

It is also currently unknown if download of Call of Duty will be available at the launch of Modern Warfare 2 and at what price, or if it will become available at all to the general public, but it is most likely to appear over the coming months after release.

Their stated target demographic with the Call of Duty series is 15 year old boys without a PC. Do 15 year old boys without a PC even have $150 in lawn mowing money to spend on a game?

Wow, talk about a gimmick to get nerds with military mindedness to fork over a paycheck for a gimmick. So this shall open the flood gates for paying $149 for a game?

Sadly as much as the NVG sounds appealing, it looks like a really cheap 1st gen. Below average NVG gimmick. Wonder how useful it actually is when used. If you can still see in the dark, I'm all up for it but given the pricing and the toyish look, I'm not really too pleased with the extra cost.

, it includes the game in a steal tin, the art book and also the download code for the original game.
FYI its steel not steal :P
On the other hand, if it comes in a steal tin, maybe i can get one for free...

You know this how? Where's the fact behind your comment?

good night vision goggles cost more than $70

i dont see how this is a rumor since it says it's coming from Infinity Ward, the developer.

Saw this on GameSpot...it's a little crazy to buy that Prestege version, the night vision goggles and all. Now if they gave me a M-16, then I'm all in!

If they are giving away Jackhammers, count me in too!

Holy mother of god...I want the NVG! quick someone send me money.

Those are light-amplification goggles that use the same tech that is in cheap digital cameras. It's not a bad price for them though. The good ones spec ops soldiers use are thermal goggles and cost 10x as much. Just saying don't think you're getting military-grade goggles with your CoD game! LOL. Those kinds of goggles still aren't allowed to be exported to some countries. If they gave away military-grade NV goggles for $160 with CoD, it would become the most popular game in Iran and North Korea. :P

Toadeater,

Damn you're racist

SERIOUSLY!


Not at all. I think todeater suggested the governments of these countries would want the goggles for their fighting forces and not that the peoples of Iran and North Korea love to personally own military hardware. Criticism of government is not racist.
