Modern Warfare 2: Prestige Edition

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMSS12iY1X0

Basically just the game with night vision goggles for $150.

Waste of money? yes.

Will I buy it: Probably. Though it will be a guilty please buying something like this for so much.

Your thoughts?

Well, at $150 forget it, an extra $90 over the regular game price for some cheap goggles, a case, art book, and a COD download worth less than $10. I'll be buying mine as the regular edition or at most the hardened edition, I mean $150 is two brand new PS3 games at $60 and an older game at $30.

I doubt it, unless you paid $150 for it, it's probably the Hardened edition (or Collector's Edition, the Prestige Edition is the equivalent to the Special Edition), which I believe is just missing the goggles, at least that's what been announced, so if that's all your missing is it really worth $70 for a pair of goggles and the head to go with it.

How much do you guys reckon Activision paid for those goggles?
They arent hyping it as coming from any notable maker, gotta assume theyll be pretty poor

They are probably plastic like all their other periphials. I also notices the end that has the night vision on it is only one hole and its very small, so your not going to be able to see very far infront of you at all. Probably even has a light in it or something like the generic 20 dollar toy ones you get at walmart.

Put it in simple terms. Real night vision goggles new go for at least 100 bucks. Just buying them used at local army shops for movies was costing me like 80 bucks.

And we expected anything less from Activision, nothing but that quality plastic stuff, made in China for pennies on the dollar and yet they charge us $70 extra, can we say major mark-up here, over 90% of that $70 extra is probably pure profit.

Even if they didn't work I'd still think it's cool. If it's plastic it's not a big deal too. It looks badass still in my opinion. I'd pay a lot to have my favorite band sign my guitar just like some people would pay a lot for a collectors baseball card. It's all about memorabilia. It's perceived value not the actual cost of the goods.
