The Veteran Edition package of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will retail only in Game and cost about £119.99.
Game and Activision has unveiled another prohibitively expensive retail package of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
, dubbed the Veteran Edition.
According to Eurogamer
the Veteran Edition package will be exclusive to Game stores in the UK. It will also cost a whopping £119.99, which is more than double the price that the regular game will be selling for at retail.
Activision recently raised a controversy by revealing that the retail versions of Modern Warfare 2 would cost around £55
across all platforms, to help compensate for the fluctuations in the strength of the Euro and the Pound Sterling.
The Veteran Edition of Modern Warfare 2
will contain some extra goodies though, the centrepiece of which is a 12" tall model of Captain Soap MacTavish that comes with interchangeable weapons - dual pistols, dual ice-axes and an M14 rifle.
The package will also contain the 'regular special edition', or Hardened Edition of Modern Warfare 2
, which includes a steel case, artbook and code to download Call of Duty: Classic
on Xbox Live or PSN. It will go on sale alongside the full game, November 10th, and will apparently be console-only.
"Fans of Modern Warfare will want to get their hands on one of these very limited statues,
" said Game's Tricia Brennan. "There are a limited number available worldwide and we are proud to offer it exclusively here in the UK.
