Modern Warfare 2 has a premium strategy guide, seriously

Not content to have two special editions of the game itself, Modern Warfare 2 will also have a “Prestige Edition” strategy guide. Yeah, aren’t we going just a little overboard with the whole “premium” thing now, guys?

Brady has revealed two versions of the official Modern Warfare 2 strategy guide, a normal one and a more expensive one. The main differences are the fact that the Prestige Edition is hardcover and includes information on how to obtain the game’s Achievements and Trophies. Apparently that makes it worth £20 in the UK, while the inferior “Signature Edition” costs £13.

This is absolutely amazing, and I really don’t know what else to say about it. Hit the jump for the press release.
