Four Ways to Justify Buying the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition

"The Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition is easily the most epic collector's set this side of the Halo 3: Cat Helmet Edition. In fact, it tops the H3:CHE considering that it comes with freakin' night-vision goggles that you and your cat (or dog, for that matter) can wear. The Prestige Edition is so epic that it's turned most of us into giant hypocrites, myself included. We've all complained on message boards and comment threads about how unnecessary special editions have become lately, but now we're all trying to find legitimate excuses to justify integrating night-vision goggles into our everyday lives. Well I, for one, don't like being called a hypocrite, so here are four ways to justify buying the Prestige Edition this fall."

You have too much money and have something against giving to people who need it like Affricans... in which case you should seriously consider learning more about culture you 12 year old American!

I have another reason...
With that money (150$), you could buy:

Assassin's Creed 2 +
Modern Warfare 2 +
Uncharted 2: Among thieves/Splinter Cell: Conviction

I don't think people realize you could buy a refurbished 360 at that price. I wouldn't buy a game worth the price of a fixed console.

If we were actually getting a deal on those nightvision goggles I would get it. But I am betting you can't see more than ten feet in front of you they are so cheap.

actually the Modern Warfare 2 prestige edition doesnt really look that epic, id rather have the Gears 2 full sized lancer rifle than a pair of cheap goggles.

You can buy two games and dinner for that price. I would go with the two games.

If you need reasons to justify a purchase, then it's not worth it.

Especially when the reasons assume the NVGs will actually be decent in any way.

Is an exploitation of a popular franchise because activision sucks at making great new IP's. Hell COD was dead until Modern Warfare came out. Everyone was playing Halo. Modern Warfare is awesome, its just too bad they're milking it like this. These are the tactics that turn people off to products.

The best part is the people who buy the prestige editions are going to be the ones screaming and yelling online cuz they're getting smoked by the guys who bought the regular version.

Kleptic3467d ago

well 'dead' is a pretty strong statement...the games still sold very well, but I agree...CoD 2 and 3 had next to zero competition at the time of their release, especially the 360's launch lineup was completely empty accept for that...

but CoD 4 was pretty much the unanimous GOTY for 2007, which is what everyone said Halo 3 would be...

I agree though...activision is definitely the new 'old' EA...they sort of switched spots in the industry for the time its just crap movie tie ins, crap guitar hero spin offs, and more CoD...MW2 will be great, but I highly doubt it will be as 'fresh' as CoD 4 was...

jeseth3467d ago

I just felt like COD 3 was where I really started to hate WWII shooters.

As far as the rest of your statement, I agree completely. Guitar Hero, DJ Hero ?, Band Hero (Doesn't that kill the while Guitar Hero idea? Especially that GH has all instruments now), and COD. Like you said, Activision is the new "old" EA.

On that note, I can't wait for teh Dead Space sequel.

lloyd_wonder3468d ago

meh. I'll buy COD if I feel like it.

The-Director3467d ago (Edited 3467d ago )

I Have no shame in saying that COD:MW2 is one of my most anticipated game of the year, but i will never pay that much money for a CE, i would rather buy me a PSP which will cost a little extra !!
