There’s no Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 3

1 min read


Modern Warfare 2 got a super expensive Prestige edition of the game that shipped with a functional set of night vision goggles. Black Ops, in response, kitted its Prestige edition with a functional spy-cam equipped RC Car.  So how’s Modern Warfare 3 going to one-up Prestige editions of the past?

It’s not.

While I’d secretly hoped that Modern Warfare 3 would have a fancy Prestige edition that included a puppy with a bomb strapped to it, Infinity Ward has confirmed that there won’t be a Prestige edition at all.

“There is no Prestige Edition, only a Hardened Edition for #MW3,” said Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling on Twitter, breaking the hearts of those who like extra swag in their games. Instead, there’ll only be the $99 Hardened Edition which, among other things, contains a 1 year subscription to Activision’s new Call of Duty Elite service. This is especially upsetting for local Call of Duty players, since we’ve gotten news that the Hardened Edition won’t be available in South Africa at all.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
