Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition Unboxed

Gaming is party to many sub cultures of geekery that sometimes border on the worrying.  Collectors can quite easily step over the boundaries of what’s considered the norm but that doesn’t stop the great publishers of our beloved industry providing us all with some crazy special/collectors/obsessive compulsive edition tat to stick on your mantle.

With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 not being your standard shooter but rather the sequel to what is widely regarded as on of the best games of all time, Activision couldn’t exactly make do with a 6 inch metal figurine.  Oh no, they went ten steps further on this one.


As is illustrated in the video below, you’ll find three versions of the game.  The standard, the steel book, and the Prestige edition. Here’s what you’ll find in the rich mans version in bullet point form.

  • A copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • As rumoured in March, a voucher code for Call of Duty 1 for either platform
  • A molded plastic bust of Soap McTavish…
  • …to hang your working Night Vision goggles on

Uh, yes, you read that right.  Here’s the proof.

No price at the time of writing but expect this to be available only to those who wish to use two limbs as currency.  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be in the shops this “holiday” but I’d expect to see Call of Duty 1 perhaps a wee bit sooner.
