A Little Something Extra

We've all grown accustomed to popular video games being released in "collector's editions", where in addition to the game you get a t-shirt or some other trivial doddle. Well Activision, the makers of the "Call of Duty" franchise, have raised the stakes for the upcoming release of "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2".

When the anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is released on November 10, its $150 Prestige Edition will include what's surely the most extravagant bundled bonus ever -- a fully-functioning pair of night-vision goggles.

Although I've never purchased any of the previous "Call of Duty" releases, and am not highly inclined to play this one, the addition of night-vision goggles (and for the low price of $150) does make it intriguing. (the full article can be read here)

What will be really interesting to see, though, will be the affect this will have on games of Hide & Go Seek amongst neighborhood kids now. No one is going to want to play with the kid who can spot them behind a tree at night from 300 yards away.
