Do you remember when Modern Warfare 2's special edition came with those overpriced, essentially useless kiddie night vision goggles? My, how far we've come. The games may have gotten progressively worse (at least in my humble opinion) but the licensed gear is getting slicker all the time. Munitio is the first to throw their hat into the ring with their Modern Warfare 3 branded Billets 9mm earphones
These guys retail at around $90 MSRP but I must admit the styling is pretty cool. The earbuds look like little 9mm cartridges and they're decked out in MW3 green. I may be sick to death and back with Call of Duty at this point, but that doesn't mean I don't salivate at the swag now and then.
