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.
I feel as though the game companys are preparing us to take over the world. Bat man gives us a real batarang, MW2 nightvision, FP:DR gives us a helmet. The first one that gives me an M-16 gets my money.
hahah ! ^
lmao... @SeanScythe, hahaha. Maybe will come bundled with the next CoD for Natal haha.
Anyone who bought the Prestige edition wasted a good chunk of money. So you'll have night vision goggles, now when the hell are you gonna use them besides when you turn off all the lights in your room?
The night vision goggles are cheap! A mediocre one costs 600$ and more.. I would say yes, Activision has messed you around
Wonder how popular the next hunting game would be if it came with a scoped hunting rifle? P.S. Thanks for the laugh.
that's poor people talk for not being able to afford the Presige Edition :P
When the revolution comes and we are forced to fight for survival, I will be prepared with my night vision goggles. You will not be so lucky. Stock up now people.
I think they should re-release CoD: WaW as a special edition bundled with an MP40.............now that would be cool. I'd probably end up shooting my tv...
Considering how much flack we (gamers) get over games like GTA, can you imagine the uproar if some nut got ahold of one of these things and used it in a shooting? The Columbine shooters just PLAYED video games, just think if they had been wearing products distributed by video game companies!
Unlucky fellows, this won't sell out early. lol
and the Modern Warfare 2 wins, for actually selling it.
Actvision is the winner of stupidest company of the year.
CAN ACTUALLY BE WORN ,while playing the game :-)
They will be sat there with a Master chief helmet on, a Lancer Strapped to their back,GI Joe stuck up their ass and now a Pair of NVG wrapped round their Scrawny Neck while playing a FPS Dumb BoTs
How's life in the trailer park these days bud, is your mom still whoring herself out for crack?
I offered her a tall boy of Old Milwaukees finest and she was good to go, I wish she would've told me earlier because for one more tall boy she said she'd would remove her dentures!
Yet Love the developers of NHl 10 and Infinity Ward MW2!
i agree with you.
EA isn't that that bad. I really liked bad company, Mirror's Edge, and Dead Space and I'm looking forward to Brutal Legend and Bad Company 2. Not to mention Battlefield 1943 was really great. Actvision on the other hand just plain sucks. I wish Blizzard hadn't merged with them.
EA has come a long way sincelast gen sure they still put out crap but atleast there a respectiable company now unlike activision
i wish that they didnt merge either as i really want starcraft 2, but ill wait till its almost released.
Come on codemasters that helmet looks pathetic.
That's what the real standard-issue ballistic helmets look like, though. But they usually look cooler in real military photos because they have camo helmet covers on them, which you can buy at any surplus store for like $6.
Anyone who bought Presitge MW2 is a retard. You really think those are real NVGs? They are toys. Now remeber to turn off the lights and play MW2 from your "NVGs", its part of the pretige expierence!
why does it matter to you how any one spends their money. no one is arguing whether or not they are toys, look at how many people bought the halo crap that did nothing atleast people can use these to spy on people in the dark. maybe people should stop caring how other people spend their money and just buy what ever edition they want or can afford....
spy on people in the dark? really? maybe if they are in the same closet as you...wearing all white...crazily flailing their arms in the air. why do i get the feeling that you really think you're going to be sitting outside your neighbors house trying to see what getting laid is like?
you missed my point completely, i could careless what any one does with it, my point is theres not need to call people retarded for deciding how they spend their money. millions of people go to vegas and bet in casinos KNOWING they will walk out empty handed 99 percent of the time. are they retarded? those gamers who buy the prestige version are deciding how they want to spend their money, at least they get something for their money. i think its people who cant afford it that are calling people out, which is childish. people have the option to spend their money how they like.
these are all just fads. Halo, when you think about it really was something special. Yeah it was pointless to spend that much money on a plastic helmet but halo in terms of sales was doing something never seen before and it was the first. And no I didn't buy the special edition halo. I feel the rest of these are just fads that will eventually fade like beanie babies. No one is going to spend 150 dollars each month on a special edition game.
This is just another stupid trend that was successful for Halo, just because of how many people like Halo. Not to say that people don't like MW2 or OF:TR(I'm buying both day 1) they just should do that gimmicky stuff.
was a sad dissapointment. So tiny, so cheap looking... Not that I bought it, but I had a friend who did.
My friend was bragging how he already preordered the MW2 with night goggles. I told him he can't play the game with them on. He walked away.
I'd take that helmet over a retarded pair of barely functioning night vision goggles any day.
for the bust of Soap Mactavish. I could care less about the goggles.
You realize it's just a generic mannequin head, right? They spend like 3 seconds to make each one, as its only function is to be a stand for the crap-assed NVGs. If you look at the pictures, there's no detail on his face at all, and he's even got an unnatural-looking ledge jutting out of his forehead. Super realistic.
call me stupid if you want, but I'm pretty stoked about MW2's night vision goggles! I normally hate collector's editions but this seems really cool (use it to go camping or nightime paintballing). Besides, the other collector's edition that was good was GTA4 with the CD soundtrack, lock box (keep my extensive porn collection in it), duffle bag (use it for the gym), and I still have the Rockstar keyring dangling right now. If you're going to have a CE, put things that are actually worth a damn, not some crappy "Extra Character!" or "pamphlet of concept art" which nobody really cares about. PS: is it just me or is anybody else craving a McDonald's cheeseburger?
I have never purchased a collectors edition anything. But once I saw the youtube video of the MW2 CE i was sold.
Hope you like near-sighted paintball.
This is probably just Codemasters' way of making fun of Activision for their ridiculously-useless NVGs. Believe it or not, I'm more attracted to this than any of the MW2 sets. The game looks more exciting anyway. I think I'll get this over the CoD4 rehash.
i want the helmet.
but between MW2 and M.A.G +NHL10 and Uncharted 2...When would I play this damn thing LOL
Bubbles for you...HILARIOUS COMMENT. I am in tears...
I like the quote "It's Activision testing how stupid you all are." To be honest those who do buy the collectors edition are stupid then they wonder why games are $60 soon they will be $80. And you can blame the idiots who buy these so call collectors edition.
