The French Won't Be Blocked From Enjoying Modern Warfare 2's Goggles

In a bit of triumphant news for the French, word to Kotaku via Infinity Ward's chief Twitterer is that the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition will be available in the land of the Eiffel Tower.

The tweet came out of the blue today from Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling:

fourzerotwo @stephentotilo - good news, just got word France is allowing the Prestige Edition with NVGs. I know you were worried about them. ;)

This was a follow-up to Kotaku's inquiry with Bowling yesterday about the availability of the night vision goggles in that Prestige Edition in countries where those goggles are believed to be banned. Bowling believed that there could be snags in France and Belgium.

Now we don't need to worry about the French anymore.

Less comforting for the French might be the price for this. The standard, goggles-free version of the game runs $60 here in the U.S. but 69.95 Euros in France. (That's almost $99.) No word yet on what the Prestige version will cost. In the U.S. that price will be $149.

If EnigmaNemesis was here, he'd probably say, "See, that is why these aren't high quality NVG's". I'm starting to agree with him. Expect camcorder quality night vision.
