Activision has upped the ante this year’s Hardened edition of Modern Warfare 3, usually ringing in at $80, this one will cost a hundo($100). The reason for this isn’t as obvious when seeing what’s included in the box, but hidden in there is a full year of DLC packs that will cost you nothing, while being estimated at a $60 value. Before I explain, here’s what’s included:
- A year of Elite
- Elite perks: in-game emblem, camouflage, clan XP boost, player card, and more
- Exclusive PlayStation Network theme or Juggernaut outfit for your Xbox Live avatar
- Steel case
- An art book including 100+ pages of sketches and other military source material
- Unique disc art
Worth it? I definitely think so, even if only to get the DLC at a nice discount.
