If you're planning to get a normal copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, you might want to reconsider. This year, the hardened edition will come with a LOAD of stuff! Depending on which version you get, you will get a special theme/outfit for your system.
The photo appears to show a retail advertisement for a European version of the Hardened Edition box, so it’s possible the U.S. version would be different. However, previous limited-edition Call of Duty packages have been identical in the United States and Europe.
