Is it intentionally choppy so as not to show off too much? If so, it's annoying as crap.

well, you see, they called me up the other day and said 'Hey, CeeKay, we got this guy, Erotic Midorikawa or something like that, who we really want to annoy.  any ideas?'  so, I pondered for a moment, and replied, 'well, he loved CoD4, and is probably looking forward to your new trailer for MW2.  so, I guess if you really want to annoy him, you could make it really choppy'.  so, yes, it's intentional.

I found that the windows media version was really choppy, but the quicktime version worked great. Well, except for the fact that it stopped about 20-30 seconds from the end and wouldn't go any further.

Chopped up trailers are fine. Where they stop mid animation is not.

Sweet baby Jesus, MW2 might fix the major complaint I had with the single player campaign.  Constantly spawning enemies.

Quote
In Modern Warfare 2 fighting with terrorists is much easier than the original Modern Warfare. In it, enemies will no more constantly respawn as they had been doing in previous version of Call of Duty games.

Recently the CCO of Infinity Ward, Jason West said, “We are aware of it and we’re actively trying to eliminate it.” He added further while briefing to Game Informer, “I think we agree that it’s not very good.”
It is many a time said earlier that MW2 will not be like its predecessor Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Even it will not bear the Call of Duty name. Now, if the spawn system is eliminated then it seems like it will distance Modern Warfare 2 from other COD series.

I'd be happy with a Battlefield: Bad Company type spawning system, though the maps & gameplay are not at all similar.

Exactly. Nothing good will come with the wide availability of these googles.

Still, it's a really damn cool promotion item, even though it'll be expensive as all hell.

I'm going the other way on this. I think that's the stupidest collector's edition I've ever seen. NVGs? Come on.

I'll probably go hardened as I loves me some art books.

I think the NVG edition comes with the art book too.  Plus, at least in this one you're getting something (semi)useable.  Lots of people spent over $100 on the Legendary edition of Halo 3, and the helmet that came with that couldn't even go on your cat.  The crazy edition of Fallout 3 was a bit better with a thing that could at least be used as a clock.  This one gives you a set of NVGs.  If they work even moderately well, then it's automatically the most worthwhile special edition ever. 

Unless it costs $200.  Then it's just silly.  But still the most useful tchochke ever.

Well the "Hardened" edition is going to run you $80 according to that article.  That NVG version is going to be a couple hundred bucks at least?

god damn that's a weird promo.  now, with your nvg's and gow 2 lancer, you will be a fine target for the local PD to take down when they get the call you are prowling around in your black sweat pants at night. 

i'd have to say though, as one whom firmly believes that a zombie apocalypse is rising, NVG's would be downright vital  thumbsup

According to Voodoo extreme, only $150 for the nightvision edition.

Quote
Surprisingly, that ridiculous Modern Warfare 2 special edition, with the nightvision goggles, will only set you back $149.99 (Activision must have received a very nice bulk-buy discount from the manufacturers).

I'm thinking that for $70, these are going to be pretty craptastic goggles.

Exactly, they look like These to me. There's no light amplification at all, just taking advantage of CCD camera's ability to "see" the near infrared of all of those LEDs on the front.

Maybe they'll release a Modern Warfare: Conspicuous Consumption edition including a set of these bad boys.

Some good news for MW2 from an interview with Infinity Ward via Kotaku:
Quote
But what was happening in the level we were shown from the new game was different, the IW guys explained. Absent from that level — and from the game — are the infinite enemy spawn points that were criticized in Modern Warfare. Bowling said the new game's enemies have "dynamic AI," meaning that they are designed to act more independently of what the designers map out. He said a player could expect them to be more sensitive to gamer behavior, going beyond the flanking and cover strategies of the enemies in the first game to break their patrol routes, or take to roofs. They're smarter. And they will adapt enough that a Modern Warfare 2 player won't be able to rely on the enemies being in the same places and doing the same things each time they play a level.

While enhanced enemy behavioral intelligence is a familiar promise made by shooter developers, Bowling's colleague, Drew McCoy, did say that this smarter AI was what allowed the designers to ditch those infinite hordes of enemies. Instead of needing to emit a clown-car's worth of enemies to press the player enough to run forward to a new checkpoint, the smarter AI enemies are now supposed to root out a player, which will push them along.

I figure what's been said above is the case.  This is simply a near infrared lamp with an infrared camera, which would be useless outside the range of the lamp.  The $20k versions rely on light enhancers that use ambient light exclusively and do not require an additional light source to function properly.

the PC game S.W.A.T. 4 did this- any time you fired up any given level you'd never know where the hostiles or hostages were, which made each play session interesting.
