Like 2 or 3 weeks ago, this seemed to be a very true statement as major retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop(perhaps others) were all sold-out with the Prestige Edition. Today it turns out that both GameStop and Amazon have the Prestige Edition again available.
Robert Bowling, community manager for Infinity Ward has said that the night-vision-goggle-equipped Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 2 will be very limited, and is aimed directly at the extremely hardcore fans.
“We’ve already been asked by retailers to up the production numbers due to demand, which we immediately denied.”
“We decided from the beginning that we want this to be for the hardcore fans and early adopters. The fact that it is actually limited is one of the coolest parts, which is why we’ve individually numbered every copy.”
Does this mean they have upped the production on what was supposed to be a "limited" product? I really hope not, or else this is going to be Halo 3 Legendary all over again.
