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?

Like I said before…this is exactly the reason that Activision is crying over the price of the PS3. Lower the price of the PS3 so that they can schill more of their own crap.

Some people will buy this, but consider it a pass for me…

You could probably wait a few months on this and the price will plummet. All of these overmade limited editions end up sitting on store shelves, e.g. Halo 3 and GTA4's.

This is bull! Only stupid people would buy this junk, the only reason why someone would buy it was because they weren't informed that the goggles were sh*t!

Oh that's funny. Accusing kevinater321 of contradicting himself and then on second glance you can't see the contradiction and claim he's edited his comment. That is one epic fail on your behalf MarvelZombies.

I would rather buy the Beatles Rock band full kit if I am layout down cash like that. I already have the RB kit, but I would love that new kit. Just love that bass!

Is that bundle only for Xbox 360? All the pictures i see, including that one in the article are Xbox bundles.

No, it's for both the PS3 and 360. We just can't find any pics of the PS3 Prestige Edition.

Xbox 360 pics have been the default for pretty much any multi-plat this gen. Same as the last gen where you'd find ps2 covers as default on almost all if not all websites.

I know a couple of places where they have that Halo 3 thing with the helmet for $50 or cheaper so I'm sure the same thing would happen here with this. If you think about it everyone will pretty much the standard then on the shelves or the back room of some places the PE will be sitting there for months, and then that's when I'll jump on this.

like I read somewhere
Hardened Edition $79
Prestige Edition 149$

sorry, I'm a die hard Modern Warfare fan but this is just ridiculous. "Sony, lower ur prices or else" then this…. no thanks.

Thats money better spent on other games. At least with the Tekken 6 controller bundle for the same price, you get a damn good joystick which can be used for other fighting games, unlike Activision's peripherals or this NVG which is bound to be a crappy model

It's not truly refreshing enough to be GOTY I reckon.

Okay I don't know what I'm talking about but we'll see..

I am getting this game period…now as for the prestiege edition, I will wait to see if the goggles are crappy or pretty good before I pick it up…and there is no way I would pay that much for that stuff even though it comes across as a decent deal to me, good thing christmas is so close to the release date lol

Kotex is a hypocrite. Activison wins the award of "Company with the most over priced crap". $200 for Guitar Hero and now this? Ha! What a joke. This makes me hesitant to buy the regular edition out of spite.

ffs, if you dont want to pay for it dont get it. Its that simple, they've even released a special edtion without the goggles, no one should be complaining.

Not so much a complaint. More of a pointing out of the obvious hypocrisy in kotex's threats toward Sony for a price cut. This just piles onto the "they're one to talk" statement. They cry for a price cut yet they sell some of the most over priced games on the market.

I don't really see it that way, with all the stuff it comes with in the regualar special edition and the night vision googles it seems like a great deal…unless the goggles are crap…then it's a rip off…we'll just have to wait for the reviews to come it I guess…

Damn, as I was reading this, my jeans flew right off and dialed 911 for my local seamstress.
I leaned in real close, so I was able to overhear my wallet pocket ordering a zipper, and one very large Anti-vision pick-proof lock.

And now all my jeans are doing a victory march while holding up all their "Anti-vision equals Anti-matter" signs.

"Right on, right on…..power to the wallet"

I don't know why Activision goes all out with the ancillary stuff. I rarely buy a Special Edition unless I'm a fan of the game as is.

No one will have a use for them, well Buffalo Bill had a use for them but that's beside the point, I don't understand how anyone would need NV goggles. They are killer but if I really wanted a pair I would join the marines. They would pay me to use them.

They would be much better quality to boot. I bet these are cheaper then the ones that used to cost 200,000 tickets at Dave and Busters.

You also get a free download of Call Of Duty one… if it's not too limited edition, I'll see if there are any available around Christmas time and ask for it… I loved Call Of Duty, the whole WWII era times, not the modern ones, but after I tried Modern Warfare I realized it was just as good as COD2 and even better.

I don't know why. But i have a hunch this appeals much more to Xboxers. They seem to like wasting their hard earned money on junk. 😮

Some dick head at Activision: …."Sony, your console is way to expensive, lower your prices or we wont support you…."

Some dick head at Activision: …. "buy our game with some crappy night vision gogs for 150$. Sorry we cant put it on the market at a reasonable price, because we would loose money.

I think Im going to take your initial stance regarding value for money and skip this "wonderful" offer. Just hope I can get hold of a normal version without selling a kidney..

Activision keeps givinng me reasons why I should never buy one of their games.
