HMV has priced up Modern Warfare 2's Prestige Edition at £119.99.
that is beyond ridiculous
From now on I'll be boycotting Activision! (after MW2 that is)
This is beyond pathetic. A arcade 360 costs about 130 quid. Who do they think they are scamming?
Without a price drop on PS3 they can't continue to overprice stuff. . . . . On a serious note, I hope they're not trying to start a trend with this. And It's not like they spent 5 yrs making this game either.
this game has become a rent only for me, with the rrp of 55 quid they can shove it. cod 4 i only liked for the single player, multi was alright, but bad company is better, and bad company 2 is out next year
jesus christ that's almost 200 USD... 195.80 to be exact.
Sheesh. What does it come with? Your own war?
Agreed! Have a bubble for making me laugh lol!
Hahaha! Seriously, just take a bubble. You made my day =D ...Classic!
No Thank You
Only crazy people would buy the game at that price...
But I hardly think they're professional quality. This is just some gimmick devised by the developers to eke more money out of gamers.
I still think they're going to be a pair of binoculars with a torch built into them...
Some people are going to be pissed when they find that out.
ACTIVISION ARE A RIP-OFF!!! :-/
Hehe... That's going to sell like hot cakes!
ps3 games dont sell. Cause their fanboys and install base would rather whine and complain, than buy cool sht.
your comment is redundant, since the ps3 costs more than any other console anyway.
if Operation Flashpoint is as good as i hope its going to be, i may just give this game a miss... at least till early next year. lets see what prices they will be talking about then. I usually not one to say this, but i actually hope a lot of gamers don't buy it at launch... just to show them we are not mugs! I think a lot of people will miss this and prob just do for the regular or the other edition. we are gamers, not holly wood stars !
Actually, this price isn't as bad as I feared. I mean, we're paying £20 more than the US for the base version of the game by itself, so £30 more than the US for the Prestige Edition isn't as big a markup as I feared. Despite the price being absolutely effing ridiculous, obviously.
I'm sure all those "night-vision" goggles are, are a cheap infra-red LED optic inside a pseudo-realistic housing. It would be nice to be proven wrong, but that's just my feelings on this whole thing
And Activision had the nerve to tell Sony to lower the price of the PS3. They have got to be kidding.
This doesn't bother me too much, it's the price of the standard and hardened editions that do. Hardened is £70!!! Normally a steelbook/colelctor's version of a game comes in at about £40 when you shop around. The cheapest I can find this for is £65, ridiculous. And talk about being hypocrites, after the fiasco made about Activision calling for a PS3 price drop they go and hike up the price of MW2, purely because of the success MW had. None of the other publishers are marking their games up, and even if they do, you can guarantee it won't be £15 above the usual RRP.
i completely agree pal, they are saying the ps3 needs a price cut, COD 4 is still £30-£40 and COD5 is more expensive than most games. they need to take alook at there price margins and realize that they can sell more copies by bringing the normal edition of MW2 to about £40 instead of what some places are charging £55. and lower the price of MW1
Good luck to all of you buying this game.
There is some hope in that you can pre-order from Argos for £35.99 (use code GAME20 at checkout). But I wanted the hardened edition, and for that I'm gonna have to pay almost double the price of the standard, no thanks :(
i wasnt gonna get this game anyway, let alone the "Prestige" pack but with a rediculous price like this only the hardest of the hardcore will get it
Imagine what you could do with £120... Do a weeks shopping for family Fill your car up with loads of petrol Buy 3 brand new games for £40 each OR ... Go to amsterdam for a weekend and get fuked outta your head!!! I know what i'd choose
Option 4! ;D
When Rock Band was released it cost £120, and that was with the game and the band kit. So, I'm not buying this. No f-ing way.
Honestly. Well.. I won't be buying that, How in the living hell..?!
No chance. i think ill just buy the Aluminium Box edition depending on what price that is :D
£69.99 RRP, cheapest it cane be found at the moment is £64.99 :(
Time to get used to those prices for English people... The pound is worth nothing right now. Every European from the continent buys his games in the UK, it's half cheaper shipping included. I doubt the publishers could continue without raising game prices in the UK... Sony got crazy about everybody buying games in UK recently, so they shipped different languages on the Infamous Bluray to make people buy their own country version. I didn't care, I understand English well enough to play in that language.
For £120 you could buy a goddamn Nintendo Wii, a whole new game console people!
I rather burn the money than to get the Wii
Yeah you can count me out. I'll just get the standard version sicne the others add nothing meaningfull to the mix...
looks like i was right, i made a £120 prediction for the UK. i said GAME but HMV was first. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
good for you, would you like a medal for that guess?
