Is PC getting fucked over with the prestige edition again?

#1 Posted by crusader8463 (14415 posts) -

I was curious to know if the PC version of this game is getting fucked over like last time and not getting a prestige edition. I tried looking on ebgames.ca but they are notorious for not listing the PC versions of games, and I couldn't find anything googleing around that didn't just link to some news article about the 360.
 
After the disappointment that was MW 2 I don't have any real interest in the game at this point, but I'm curious to know if they are continuing their tradition of doing this.

Pretty sure it's getting fucked

PC gets standard edition only.  I don't see why they would because it wouldn't sell well, especially when the majority of sales will be on Steam seeing as the game is exclusive to it.  Either way the more expensive versions are a ripoff so I'm fine with having only the standard edition.

@crusader8463: Lucky PC Gamers, they don't have the possibility of wasting their money of Limited Edition garbage.

Its not a huge deal but its kind of weird that they don't do the same with PC versions.

@Lukeweizer: I don't understand this mentality. If you don't want it fine, but why be happy that they have taken away your choice to buy it? I have no interest in the silly RC car, but I don't like knowing that should I change my mind the option is not there or that for those that did want to "waste their money" as you put it don't get to.

@crusader8463: 
I gave up on limited editions after Arkham Asylum was a waste of $90 when I could've bought the game, brand new, day 1 for $40.
 
Limited Editions are a waste of time. Most the time they come with toys that are just cheaper to buy from Toys R Us or something. All the included DLC that's ever with special editions will be released separately. They'd be stupid to refuse money from people who didn't get it. All the other crap will just sit around your room and never be used. You're going to be playing the game too much to bother playing with the toys or other junk they throw in there, don't waste the extra money. 
 
That all being said... I do like to spend money of ridiculous editions. I bought the replica lancer for Gears of War 2 from Amazon. And I would've bought the Prestige edition of MW 2 just to say I was dumb enough... but just couldn't justify it.

Some people are actual collectors though, so the collectors editions work fine for us.

I didn't realize that not having the ability to purchase some shitty RC car would affect the quality of the game on that platform :S

So you're saying that you actually wanted to pay $90 for a remote control car?

I thought you were making a post that actually had a point to it.  I didn't realize that it was just a troll post whining about something trivial. 
 
I gave you the benefit of the doubt and I guess I shouldn't have done that.

@REIGN:  I was trolling? I wanted to know if they were doing it this time or not out of morbid curiosity and couldn't find any info on it. I guess that's trolling now?

@crusader8463: I say trolling because it seems like the only reason you posted the thread is to in some way slam Activision. 
 
First of all, you say "fucked over" which is pretty strong language, which is a little much when talking about an r/c car video game bundle. 
 
And secondly, you say "continuing this tradition." I wouldn't call one game (MW2) a tradition. 
 
In summation- chill out duder, it's just a dumb toy for kids.  Most gamers that would be interested in this are kids, and the vast majority of them play consoles.  Also, PC gamers are pretty likely to buy the game over Steam, so it doesn't make much sense for Activision to offer a PC bundle.

When you say a version is getting "fucked over" it makes it sound like you're talking about the game...not some crappy pack in.

I wouldn't really call it being fucked over. PC gamers aren't being enticed to pay way too much money for a cheap toy that may give the purchaser 7 minutes of enjoyment. 
 
I am guilty of buying "collectors" editions occasionally and I've regretted paying the extra money for every single one. They're just being nice to PC gamers.

Who honestly cares about these tiered packages for games? 
 
From everything I've learned about black ops, the pc version is actually getting the proper treatment in needs by treyarch. We get ds support, dev consoles, an sdk somewhere down the line, and plenty of other features a pc game should have.

collectors are shitheads.  Less packaging/worthless junk = empirically better. 
 
There, I'm trolling/keeping it real.

PC gamers get all of the in game content included in the hardened edition(zombie maps.) The only things we don't get are the physical items from the prestige and hardened editions.
