The only way I seem to be able to get myself a MW2: Prestige Edition is to buy one from the US, although, you probably guessed, I'm from the UK, As HMV has entirely sold out all copies, I was wondering if anyone had any idea about if the US one would work on my UK 360? It's probably a stupid question and 90% likely to be a no, but I'm still asking anyways, Thanks. :)

MW2 Prestige Edition (http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=75518)

You can get an international pre order on it if you want.
They ship by UPS Express for $20 I think it was.

But the Import tax when it gets here will end up costing you about 50-60 when it gets here btw. (That's over and above the end price of the game).

Haha yeah I noticed that.

And maybe you could.
It might be region free it might not.
All of the other IW CoD games are region free though according to Play Asia, so chances are this one will be too.

They base price of getting it would end up at about 105 so really only maybe 40 more.

But imo it would be best to just risk it and still get the Prestige Edition if you do really want it.
If it isn't region free then all you need to do is buy a regular edition over here and swap the discs about :)

Sorry dude, us Brits play PAL games, American games are NTSC.

You could always get the PAL Hardened edition and buy some night vision goggles somewhere on the internet. It probably would end up cheaper.

Ehh, sorry but didn't you read the thread before you posted?

Just go to Play Asia and you'll see that plenty of 360 games are region free even if they are branded on the case as NTSC or PAL.

I came up with a plan, I'm gonna buy a Prestige Edition from the US, and buy a standard MW2 from the UK, then I'm gonna change the discs, and then sell the US MW2 to one of my overseas mates (Or just anywhere I can find)..

I seem to be having the same problem.. But it's even more important since the COD games sold in the french part of Switzerland are completely dubbed in French :S
So my only solution to get my hands on the Prestige Edition is to buy one on Amazon.com... Any updates on the region-free thing?? I might end up buying the hardened edition from Amazon.co.uk.. but no NVG n no cool package !!!
