Modern Warfare 2's collector's edition is ridiculous. It's Activision testing how stupid you all are. But it's not alone in the over-the-top military shooter collector's edition stakes! No, there's also Operation Flashpoint 2 to consider.
Codemaster's "sequel" to Bohemia Interactive's 2001 classic has a limited edition that comes with an army helmet. A full-size army helmet, that looks like it's made from metal (plus a dog tag), giving the game a box that wouldn't look out of place in the Rock Band isle. Or a stinky old army disposal store.
No word on price yet, or availability (this is a European version), but hey, on the bright side, unlike the MW2 box, this one will be made available to PC users.
Kotaku AU Note: I've asked Codies to confirm availbility in Australia. Will let you know.
