I am personally getting both “Harden” Edition (Limited Edition) for Xbox 360, and Prestige Edition for PS3! This also gives you an idea of how things will go on sale. I think that the whole Call of Duty “tag” will only be for regular, casual people who has never played a Call of Duty game. Or for those who don’t know what Modern Warfare 2 is. On the other hand, the Harden Edition and Prestige Edition are for those people who have been passionate about Infinity Ward and COD4 (Modern Warfare).
I really don’t think that the Call of Duty “tag” should have been on top of Modern Warfare 2. Infinity Ward was smart about dropping the name from the overall game. Word of Mouth will take care of itself on top of the whole marketing and advertising blitz Activision is planning for Modern Warfare 2, that said.
I am going to go forward with my plans of launching mwarfaretwo.com, mw2forums.com and mw2boards.com – if I have to buy an existing MW2 website, I will.
