for those who did not know, hardened edition details for europe have been leaked. like with COD upper tiers of the past, there will be unique case art, the steel case, and a xbox avatar code (heres hoping this one works on female avatars so i dont have to spend half the morning on the phone with MS and activision). bonus for this edition include 1 year membership to elite, founder status on elite, exclusive in game emblem, player card, camo, clan XP boost and other exclusives, and a limited edition field journal with "100 pages of authentic military sketches, diagrams and written entries.” PSN users will get the same, except their version of an avatar outfit will instead be a theme. article has noted that in the past european editions of COD upper tier products have been the same as their american counterparts. also, everybody in attendance at the XP event is receiving a copy of the hardened edition, so this should be shortly confirmed. pics and more at the link:
so the $1M question is: do these bonus make you want the upper tier products? me personally, i was holding out for more time in the elite, but 1 year is a start i guess. the founder stuff doesnt really do anything for me. if the exclusive camo is hot pink im all in.
