Modern Warfare 2 Collectors Editions Announced

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2009 by exclaiminggamer

In what will probably go down as one of the most epic packages ever offered in a collectors edition, Infinity Ward announced on their YouTube channel that the “Prestige” edition of Modern Warfare 2 will be coming with fully functional Night Vision Goggles.  You can check out the video here.

Now, usually I don’t bother with collectors editions, but if I have the extra cash, I may be forced to let the uber-nerd inside of me come out to play.  So what about you?  Will you fork over the extra cash for NVGs that will probably be lackluster at best?

Oops...Guess we shouldn't have tried to host the game on our tank server...

As you may recall from the podcast, I was considering picking up Battlefield 1943 this weekend for review.  The main reason I decided to wait was an unsettling volume of people stating that they were unable to connect to EA’s servers.  Apparently, DICE and EA did not have servers ready at launch, so players were unable to connect to a game until someone had left.

Today EA & DICE admitted that these problems exist and promised that they were in the process of expanding their server capacity to meet the higher than expected demand.

As of this post, many players are already reporting a vast improvement in their ability to connect to the servers, so hopefully the issue will be fully resolved soon.
