Activision announced last week the night vision-tastic Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition is coming to Australia. But only for consoles, not PC.
But it seems there is a way for PC gamers to get their hands on a
novelty toy pretty cool limited edition bundle, after all.
Kotaku reader Brett tells us he was at an EB Games store in Sydney to pre-order the game and asked about the PC version. EB staff apparently told Brett if he really wanted the Prestige Edition for PC, there was a "workaround".
Basically, it involves purchasing an Xbox 360 or PS3 version of the Prestige Edition, and a (regular) PC copy, then on release you can immediately trade in the Xbox 360/PS3 copy of the game for $80 cash back.
The key is that when you trade in the console version, you're just trading in the game - not all the swag that came with it. Sure, you might end up spending slightly more than the $200 RRP of the console Prestige Edition. But at least you can play Modern Warfare 2 on your PC and wear night vision goggles at the same.
Any PC gamers out there interested in testing this "workaround"?
