Medal Of Honor Limited Edition Won't Cost You Extra

EA's modern take on the Medal of Honor series is getting a special Limited Edition version that costs exactly the same as the regular version. Of course you get what you pay for.

It's hard to figure out what the angle here is. The Limited Edition version of Medal of Honor, now available for preorder at retailers everywhere, costs exactly the same as the normal edition. The only difference is the packaging, and a couple of extra weapons to help players battle their way through the ranks.

The package contains one exclusive weapon, the MP7, which is described as "a unique weapon utilised by Tier 1 Operators in the field".

"Access to a weapon like the MP7 will allow players to experience a tool developed with the Special Operations Community in mind," said Greg Goodrich, Executive Producer of Medal of Honor. "With its light weight, high rate of fire and its ability to penetrate body armour, the MP7 handles like a pistol yet allows targets to be engaged like a rifle."

Those who purchase the Limited Edition will also gain early access to the TOZ-194 and 870MC2 shotguns, two weapons that normally have to be unlocked through ranking up in online multiplayer.

Is this a push to make sure more players pick up the game on its October 12 launch date, a special bonus for early adapters? Why bother? I am so confused.

    Maybe they know it's no good, and are trying to boost sales before it tanks into the bargain bins...?

    Battlefield BC2 was the same- Ltd Edition came only with DLC codes, which were also later found inside some 'standard' cases anyway.

    Dont forget the Sniper comes unlocked for BC2 players too.

      Nah it was different with BC2, special editions were given out to people who pre-orderd and bought it early.

    It says "Limited Edition"... so it's so much better and Limited!

    Kinda like Malibu Stacey syndrome... "But she's got a new hat!"

    Obviously, this is another strategy in the fight against used games. Offer people extra goodies, said people want extra goodies, can't get them if they buy it used so they go for a brand new copy, which is where the 'at no extra cost' thing becomes a plus.

    the re-mastered version of frontline a ps3 exclusive? i think i would rather play this on PC but that extra is enticing ;)

      Yeah, that's PS3-exclusive. I thought that was supposed to be part of the limited edition, too? But no mention of it here, and given this is the same price I'm wondering if there's a 3rd even-more-limited-edition?

        The article doesn't mention it, but the image of the box has it up in the top right corner.

    Due to the silly delays on the 360, I don't feel like picking it up, maybe down the track if anything decent comes from it.

    no mention of MOH frontline download thats clearly on the box?

    seem to be on the right track not paying anymore especially with psn game, doing much better than MW2 last year with special editions. EA have a decent heart unlike Activision

    Hey if you going to buy the game anyway, you'd might as well get it with the shiny cover.

    guess EB already broke that EA promise, they are charging $10 more and dont mention Frontline download
