Uh, Britain, About Your Modern Warfare 2 Pricing...

While Europeans are sadly used to paying more for games, we don't think they're quite as used to paying as much as Britons are being asked to fork out for Modern Warfare 2 when it hits this holiday season.

The standard version will be priced at £55 (USD$90), making it one of, if not the most expensive regular editions of a game on record. But that's just for the standard version.

The fancy "Prestige Edition" - which includes a working set of night vision goggles - is priced at £120. That's just over $195.

If that's not bad enough, it's expected that Modern Warfare 2's price jump is just the first of many the British market will see over the coming months, as a weaker pound and higher development costs drive wholesale prices skyward.

Sucks. But hey, it could be worse. You could be French. They've got it worse.


    Well us Aussies are def gonna get his hard too. Def over $200 for Prestige and nothing below $99 for the standard i believe.

    I don't get why such popular games stay at such a high price. I mean halo 3 is still lerking around the $60 mark. And MW2 has only just gone to $50 with the GotY edition yet EB still price it at like 55-60.

    Best bet is to go with eBay if you don't want it straight away. I wouldn't trust buying the game off eBay within the first week or two. Give it a month or even two to three then buy it online.
