Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 3 Hardened Edition Details Leaked

September 1st, 2011 Michael Pica

Many of you wrote it to tell us about a wired article showing off leaked advertisement info for the upcoming Hardened Edition of Modern Warefare 3.

Call of Duty Modern Warefare 3 (SteelBook) Hardened Edition (Xbox 360) {PS3) [PAL] (Activision) (Infinity Ward)

The photo shows the BBFC rating logo meaning this is likely information on the UK release (although if past COD CEs are any indication all versions internationally are the same). While not specifically mentioned it seems that again, like past COD releases, it will include a SteelBook case for the game disc itself.

Explicitly mentioned is the following content:

  • 1 year of Call of Duty: “Elite” Membership
  • Special “Founder” status, which profiles you with exclusive:
    • in-game emblem
    • player card
    • weapon camouflage
    • clan xp boost
    • other benefits
  • PSN animated timeline theme
  • Xbox Avatar Special Ops Juggernaut Outfit.
  • A Field journal with 100+ pages of authentic military sketches, diagrams and written entries chronicling the Modern Warfare saga.

What seems most peculiar to me is that Activision has waited so long to mention details on this release and the inevitable Prestige Edition, even after this leak they refused to comment. Most likely they are simply waiting for the Call of Duty Convention occurring this weekend. We’ll post up details once they’re available.

Limited Edition Laser Cell for Call of Duty Pre-Orders

September 16th, 2010 Michael Pica has recently changed their pre-order bonus on the Upcoming Call of Duty Black-Ops from a $20 off credit to a Limited Edition Laser Cell. This is valid for all versions of the game.

The first 100,000 to pre-order since the change will receive the cell, as well as a downloadable computer wallpaper version.

By comparison GameStop’s Pre-Order Bonus is a “high-altitude flight suit skin” for your Xbox Live or PS Home Avatar.

Call of Duty Jeep Edition?

September 15th, 2010 Michael Pica

…or maybe it’s Jeep Wrangler Call of Duty Edition? Actually it’s the latter, according to the Wall St Journal. Since the Wrangler is featured in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Chystler is releasing a limited edition Jeep to celebrate.

The Wrangler will also be the “Hero” vehicle in the Call of Duty: Black Ops video game due out next month. To celebrate, Jeep will produce a limited-edition Call of Duty Jeep.

No details (and sadly no pictures) of this Limited Edition Jeep Wrangler have been release. If they were going for most expensive and ridiculous limited edition ever then they’re certainly taking the cake with this one. Here’s hoping they at least “bundle” a copy of the game with the Jeep, preferably the Prestige edition.

3 Flavors of Modern Warfare

July 20th, 2009 Michael Pica

Most of you probably know at this point, but for those of you who haven’t Activision’s upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will come in 3 different trims.

Regular Edition: The game in a plastic case, you know the drill. Retails in the US for the standard $60 but European buyer are stuffed paying a hefty £55.

Hardened Edition: Taking it’s name from the 2nd to hardest difficulty setting in the game, this version comes in a SteelBook case a hardbound art book titled “Behind The Lines” and a code to download the original 2003 game Call Of Duty from whatever online marketplace your console uses. Setting US gamers back $80 and £70 for those in Europe

Prestige Edition: Taking it’s name from the multiplayer ranking system of the previous modern warfare game, this edition includes everything that’s in the Hardened Edition but comes in a larger cardboard box with a set of functional Night Vision Goggles capable of seeing up ot 50ft in the dark, as well as a mannequin head stand to hold them.  This at about $150 for US gamers and £120 for European gamers.

All 3 editions will arrive on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC in the US and across Europe on November 10th.

Modern Warfare 2 to get Collector’s Edition

May 11th, 2009 Michael Pica

Mysteriously vague listings have popped up for a Collector’s Edition release of the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. lists the CE version for Xbox 360, Playstation3, and PC while Amazon currently has a listing for just the Xbox 360. These all have a release date of November 10th this year and a price tag of about $80.

Here’s hoping this time around the CE packaging of a COD game will live up to the stardard of quality as the game itself, I’m not holding my breath though.

COD: World at War One of First Games to Include NetFlix Trial

November 11th, 2008 Michael Pica

I picked up Call of Duty: World at War Limited Collector’s Edition today. I must say that it has the nicest case of any Call of Duty game released thus far (though the actual Bonuses for COD4 were much better).

Interesting though is that this game included the previously rumored Netflix/XBL Gold trial code.
