    No Hardened/Prestige Editions for MW2 PC

    Yep PC users get owned again.

That edition, whic in fact is listed as a pre-order option on the Amazon.com web site, has a behind-the-scenes DVD, an art book and a code to download the first Call of Duty game.

    Well get ready for some bad news. IGN is reporting (and Big Download has confirmed via an PR rep with publisher Activision) that the Hardened Edition won't be made available to PC players either, at least according to Infinity Ward's community mananger Robert Bowling. We haven't gotten a reason yet as to why PC players are being left (again) out in the cold in regards to getting the same kinds of editions as their console counterparts will have a chance to purchase.
    Sorry PC players: No Hardened Edition of Modern Warfare 2 for you either

    still though, PC gaming is what brought CoD to the masses. this is a very lame maneuver IMO.

    i'll still be buying and loving this game (most likely anyway), but it would be nice to get a little something as a PC gaming homer.

    Pretty lame... I've never cared for special editions of any games anyway. No need for a lame art book or a different case.

    "Oh cool, a DVD".

    puts it down, falls under couch, forgotten.

    "oh, look, an art book".

    flips through it once, uses it for a coaster for Coke.

    "ooh, the first COD".

    installs it, never plays it because YOU JUST BOUGHT MW2!!!

    you know, one day all of these special editions are going to be worth a fortune. kind of like that one episode of Amazing Stories (help me out here Denny/coffee) where the dude hordes all of his childhood goodies and is considered poor and homeless until someone comes along who knows the true value if his stuff and makes him rich

    It's just another way of the gaming industry telling PC users they aren't important to them anymore.

    did you really just ask if Bo has his cwp?

    he shot his name into the application form from 1000 yards... while on a Segway... One handed with his USP in .45ACP... While doing pushups AND eating his sandwich...
