Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition Given Suggested Retail Price

Whilst watching the Prestige Edition unveiling last night for Infinity Ward & Activision's Modern Warfare 2, I was hit with two emotions.
Straight off the bat when I saw the goggles, I was hit with a slight feeling of elation, because seriously, who doesn't want a pair of night vision goggles!? I know I do.
My second, and more overpowering feeling was more of an afterthought that really made me doubt the package. Of course, I'm talking about the price point. Quite simply put, I was sat musing to myself ... "if they're packing a set of night vision goggles in there, how much is this bad boy going to cost!?"
Infinity Ward, via Twitter (I'm kind of getting sick of saying that now), responded to the price point questions by stating that the "Prestige Edition suggested retail is $149." What that would translate into pound wise makes me shudder to think at the moment, but I'll cross my fingers for a circa £100 price. Otherwise, not too bad. Too rich everyone else? Speak now or forever hold your peace.
As far as other Modern Warfare 2 tidbits go ...
- The Hardened Edition is around $80.
- Both the Prestige and Hardened Edition will ship with Call of Duty XBLA.
- Call of Duty XBLA will have full multiplayer and achievements. It's an arcade title, achievements are a necessity.
