Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition Given Suggested Retail Price
Written By
View author's profile

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.

Call of Duty XBLA Multiplayer thanks for the confirmation now i just wait for the price on that, 1200 would be great although for some reason i think it's going to be 1600. I hope not. Although after BF 1943 we can hope.

As for the goggles, i will have to pass, i have to many games on my MUST HAVE OMG list right now.

At current rates, $149 is £91.31. If this is RRP and with generous game retailers, I am hoping for £90 or less haha!

@18: considering LOTS of people picked up the shatty Halo Legenday for $150 that came with a stupid Master Chief helmet, id say at the very least the nigh vision goggles are worth more than a plastic head.

Lets be honest if it's 150USD, that will translate to UK retailers as 150GBP. There is no concept of exchange rates here when it comes to games, I think we've learnt that much by now.

ok now everything completely depends on what everyone says as soon as they unbox their goggles. if they are as awesome as we all hope, then i will probably get prestige... if not? well the goggles are the only good part and CoD is not worth $20... i'll go with basic if the goggles are anything but awesome

$149 is a crazy amount! I'm sure there are other budget-minded people out there, and in this economy that is some serious cash for a mindless diversion.

i think that these goggles will most likely not be what people are expecting it to be, and most will be let down and feel ripped off by the fact that its plastic with a cheap "version" of night vision goggles inside the lenses themselfs.

risky investment i'd say..

I'll just take the game.

I wonder if they're going to make it so you can use the goggles in a stealth mode in-game.

$80 for Hardened and $150 at Prestige means they value those night vision goggles at $70. There's no way they can be any good. Just turning already visible things green isn't going to be worth it...

@58 With you 100%.

Be just like the SAS! Wear a pair of plasticky video game branded night vision goggles!

No, sir. I, for one, am an overweight, unfit gentleman with no practical use for ANY night vision goggles. My house has lights built in and for emergencies, I have a torch (or "flashlight" for our colonial cousins).

Anyone NOT overweight and unfit with a serious need for night vision goggles could find a far better price.

Also in the UK, it will probably be a direct translation in price - i.e. £149.99. We get regularly shafted. It might also have spikes in the eyes to ensure no enjoyment can be gleaned.

I've had the "Collector's Edition" aka Hardened edition pre-ordered for the price of $59.99 since 06/02/2009. Hopefully that price sticks. I'll probably sell it and get the Prestige edition if I start seeing people say the goggles are worthy... or just pick it up on clearance a few (or several) months after release. :)

I only want Modern Warfare 2. These NVGs are such a waste of money, Infinity Ward are going to make so much money out of this crap. I cant see why everyone wants them so bad. When you get them you'll be excited for all of 5 seconds before the novelty wears off. Total waste, get another game instead.

They are GEN I NVGs, which means not so great. Basically they are goggles with LEDs, a mirror, and a green filter. Definetly not worth $150 in my opinion. If you want cheap NVGs, go buy the Eye Clops by Jakks Pacific. You can get those cheap on eBay.

Considering an elite pair of NVG cost around 2 - 4 grand US and you may find a shitty pair for around $300, I think I will pass on what is sure to be a worthless piece of plastic. I am pretty sure the sculpted head does not come with it either. I already got burned on the World at War Prestige Edition or whatever you call...getting a Fricking Flask that doesn't even open. Plus I the stupid guns...none of the kills counted toward the in game challenges when you used those guns....BOGUS...Don't get burned. Do the smart thing and buy three games instead.

*Puts on NV Goggles* *walks around with NV Goggles on head for 10 minutes*
*realizes he wasted $90 on crappy NV Goggles 11 minutes after opening box*

I'll stick with the regular version for $59.99. Every time i've bought a "collectors" or "prestige" or whatever they want to call it I felt stupid for buying it.

@75, Infinity Ward did say the sculpted head will come with it. I also agree with the fact that this is a pretty shitty pair of plastic goggles probably with just green lenses with a light.

Have any of you actually stopped to think what these googles will actually be like? i just took the whole of 30 seconds to search for night vision goggles online, and you can't pick up a pair for much under 500 Pounds, no stop and think what a pair bundled with a game for a extra 50 quid or whatever it will finally be, will be like, my guess is utter shit!

I find it truly hilarious that game companies can now make double the profit on one game but bundling it with some total tack and charging me, and total morons actually fall for it!

Also what is the point of getting Call Of Duty XBLA "free" in this bundle, so OK, it was a great game for it's time, but seriously, you've just bought the new COD, as if anyone is going to stop playing that online to play the original COD instead!

$150 for night goggles? Doesn't that mean they are cheaply/poorly made?

You'd have to be a serious fucking nerd of Potsy like proportions to spend extra cash on a pair of goggles that make things go green...

Unless you plan on jacking off over your Soap head while your parents are asleep...

...then I understand XD

That Hardened Edition is way too pricey. I'm thinking it should be more along the lines of $69.99. They keep raising the prices for these things and it's becoming pathetic. Now knowing the price of the Prestige Edition those Night Vision Goggles are going to be cheap plastic toys not worth their weight in shittiness. You can easily buy a great pair of NVG's at a reasonable price in any sports store. This is a marketing ploy to get people to buy something that is worth absolutely nothing except to the idiots who buy it.

And why was it ever a question on whether or not Call of Duty for the Arcade would have achievements? All XBLA arcade games have achievements. That's just the way it is.

Hardened has everything I want in a special edition... a better case, artbook, a CoD code, so I'll stick with that one.

I have picked up a few of the "special edition " games that have come out and this doesn't sound like a bad price considering what you get (working night vision goggles).

how much was the legendary halo when it came out....and you didn't get anything as cool as NVG.

NVG's!!!!!!! I've wanted some since way back when I was like ten =D my mate says he got some for like £100 so roughly 100 for NVG's + MW2 and all the other bits n bobs sounds like pretty reasonable price to me

Ok, I understand, however much I may not like the fact that the prestige editon could be £100, but hardened edition for £80.... slightly overpriced me thinks....

Prestige Edition is actually cheap when you'll think about Legendary Edition of Halo 3 which cost something around €100 and Prestige Edition includes working, usually expensive night vision goggles, along with the games of course.

Don't go pre-ordering it early.
Chances are it barely works and prob has problems.
And seriously why do you wan't Night vision goggles?
Well where I live it's full of lamp-posts so I can see in the dark but have no reason to go out at night and look like an idiot with these

Yo and people I said this is my last post about this crap. These are going to drastically drop in price just like the Halo 3 Legendary Edition did. I remember Gamestop here in the states dropped the price on the Legendary Edition of Halo 3 to under Fifty Dollars just so they could get rid of it. The same thing is going to occur with those dollar store Goggles. If any of you buy this and except it to be worth something down the line or actually think it's going to be cool after you own for it awhile think twice. IT'S A WASTE OF MONEY AND YOU SHOULD LISTEN BECAUSE PEOPLE THAT ARE AGAINST THIS ARE JUST TRYING TO SAVE CONSUMERS SOME MONEY!!!!

thing is tho if these goggles do cost £100 is still think it would be entirely worth it because the CoD series has almost become a house brand as most people have either heard of the game or played/own it

Well... if you get the Call of Duty XBLA and the Night Vision Goggles with the Prestige Edition, then I might consider it.

But that's only if it translates to somewhere around £100. Because that's double the price the game would cost.

Actually, isn't it usually like this?:

Retail Price

UK - £40
USA - $70

But this game is going at:

UK - £45
USA - $75

So, if it's $149, that's double the price of £75. So, in English Pounds, it's gonna work out as double the UK price.


That sounds alot better. It's the cost of two games. Or:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 = £45
Call of Duty XBLA = £10
Night Vision Goggles = £35

Sounds right.
