While Activision won't comment on a local RRP, retailers have today posted prices for the two limited editions.
The Prestige Edition - first revealed here and pictured above - will set you back $199.95, according to EB. It contains:
* Night vision goggles (see in absolute darkness for up to 50 feet) * Individually-numbered and engraved goggle’s stand (Inspired by Captain "Soap" MacTavish’s in-game model) * Special edition steelbook case with custom artwork by Infinity Ward * Hardbound art book, “Behind the Lines”, designed by artists at Infinity Ward * Call of Duty Classic full downloadable game * Modern Warfare 2 full game
The Hardened Edition - pictured below - arrives sans night vision goggles for
$149.95 $129.95 (Note: the EB price didn't change, this was a mistake on our part), once again according to EB. It contains:
* Special edition steelbook case with custom artwork by Infinity Ward * Hardbound art book, “Behind the Lines”, designed by artists at Infinity Ward * Call of Duty Classic full downloadable game * Modern Warfare 2 full game
Both editions are listed as being available for PS3 and Xbox 360, but not PC.
We've asked Activision to confirm whether either edition will be coming to PC.
UPDATE: Activision has confirmed PC gamers will miss out on these limited editions. Sorry, PC gamers.
UPDATE: Activision also mentioned the Prestige and Hardened Editions are both only confirmed to be available at EB... for now, at least. Other retailers may come on board, but right now it's just for EB.
UPDATE: Kotaku reader Sam has let us know that GAME will be getting in the Prestige Edition (and presumably the Hardened Edition as well), but numbers are really limited. Same price as EB, too.
So, who's laying out 200 bucks for some goggles? How do you think the Prestige Edition compares to the similarly priced Halo 3 Cat Helmet Edition? And who's being sensible and picking up just the standard game?
