All pretenses of the Modern Warfare not just being a yearly cash grab has just been completely defenestrated (that’s your word of the day; Modern Borefare is for the kids!!) with today’s we-all-knew-it-was-coming-but-here-it-is-aren’t-you-surprised reveal of super expensive packages full of plastic crap you don’t need!!
In the Hardened Edition, along with the game you get the along with the Nuketown 2025 map, Nuketown Zombies map, Xbox Live Claw avatar prop, Zombies Avatar costume, limited edition Challenge Coins, exclusive weapon camo, exclusive player card backgrounds and the official soundtrack. On PS3 the Avatar items are replaced by exclusive multiplayer and zombie themes.
The Prestige Edition comes in your very own Care Package crate, which you can drop on your friends IRL to earn badges (i.e. jail time). It has everything that the Hardened Edition has along with this year’s toy du jour, an RC Dragonfire Drone you can fly around. Pair it up with your MW2 night vision kit & Black Ops RC Car to successfully remain a virgin forever!
There’s of course no pricing yet, but based on previous years, I’d say the Hardened edition goes for around $99 while the prestige edition is between $149 and $199. See you at midnight on November 13th, jerk-ass!
**UPDATE 3:25 pm 08/28/12: Hardened edition is $79.99 and the Prestige edition is $179.99
