Premium Price In The UK Like Everything Over Here.

Somehow they've managed to bag exclusivity of the, admittedly overpriced, Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition. The combo which includes everything but the kitchen sink will retail for £150 in this part of the world (which, get this, is nearly $100 more than the American version if you do conversions and stuff). Despite the price hikes, the package is sure to sell like hotcakes, and may well be the only thing HMV sell all year... Ouch!

If you're Irish you can only get the package from GameStop where it will cost you 149 Euros ($211).

The standard Modern Warfare 2 will be the first British game to carry an RRP of £55. Nice one Activision.
