Modern Warfare 2: Prestige Edition

Basically just the game with night vision goggles for $150.

Waste of money? yes.

Will I buy it: Probably. Though it will be a guilty please buying something like this for so much.

Your thoughts?

Well, at $150 forget it, an extra $90 over the regular game price for some cheap goggles, a case, art book, and a COD download worth less than $10. I'll be buying mine as the regular edition or at most the hardened edition, I mean $150 is two brand new PS3 games at $60 and an older game at $30.

I am calling it my economic stimulus package. I plan on buying all special editions this season.

is that the same as the Collectors Edition because thats what I pre-ordered, if thats so, then it is kinda cool

X_Racer1 14-07-2009 08:16 PM

I doubt it, unless you paid $150 for it, it's probably the Hardened edition (or Collector's Edition, the Prestige Edition is the equivalent to the Special Edition), which I believe is just missing the goggles, at least that's what been announced, so if that's all your missing is it really worth $70 for a pair of goggles and the head to go with it.

How much do you guys reckon Activision paid for those goggles?
They arent hyping it as coming from any notable maker, gotta assume theyll be pretty poor

Dustin S. 14-07-2009 10:43 PM

They are probably plastic like all their other periphials. I also notices the end that has the night vision on it is only one hole and its very small, so your not going to be able to see very far infront of you at all. Probably even has a light in it or something like the generic 20 dollar toy ones you get at walmart.

Put it in simple terms. Real night vision goggles new go for at least 100 bucks. Just buying them used at local army shops for movies was costing me like 80 bucks.

X_Racer1 14-07-2009 10:51 PM

And we expected anything less from Activision, nothing but that quality plastic stuff, made in China for pennies on the dollar and yet they charge us $70 extra, can we say major mark-up here, over 90% of that $70 extra is probably pure profit.

I wouldn't be surprised if they were pretty cheap goggles

trediddy 15-07-2009 12:23 AM

they probably r cheap i was watchin the vid when they were talking bout the stickers on the goggles they look like they would rip off so easily

but that mctavish head model is pretty cool

Dustin S. 15-07-2009 08:37 PM

Found the toy ones
http://www.amazon.com/EyeClops-Visio...pf_rd_i=507846

But the normal COd with those and you spend what 110 bucks lol. Then im sure you can get a MW2 Sticker somewhere to slap on it.

trediddy 15-07-2009 11:14 PM

they look realistic until u see the guy using them lol

Jordan 15-07-2009 11:28 PM

Even if they didn't work I'd still think it's cool. If it's plastic it's not a big deal too. It looks badass still in my opinion. I'd pay a lot to have my favorite band sign my guitar just like some people would pay a lot for a collectors baseball card. It's all about memorabilia. It's perceived value not the actual cost of the goods.

trediddy 16-07-2009 12:19 AM

i dont really care bout goggles but i want the mctavish head

Dustin S. 16-07-2009 12:43 AM

Im just gonna stick with the hardened edition lol. I think the goggles are badass but thats just too much money for me.

trediddy 16-07-2009 12:49 AM

i kno cant they have the economic package lol

SaintAvi 16-07-2009 02:01 AM

Im interested in seeing just how well this will sell, It will likely set precedent for future activision limited editions

trediddy 16-07-2009 02:06 AM

i think it will sell but not a bunch

EDIT: but believe me for christmas a bunch of kids will want that

Dustin S. 16-07-2009 02:53 AM

I wish i still got presents like that for christmas lol. Wouldnt even bother buying it and just wait for christmas, talking about it everyday lol.
