Not even if it was made from solid diamond, platinum plated and personally signed by Leonardo Da Vinci in radioactive gold dust.
This reads too much like a press release. "EA and Crytek also announced a closed multiplayer beta for Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system starting this fall." Xbox 360(R) videogame and entertainment systems? Really?
Real people call it an Xbox. Professional people call it an Xbox 360. What an oddly super-formal choice of words.

You guys are vaguely remembering this:
The news wasn't official back then. This update is fresh from EA at GamesCom. Also, at the time, the information based on the leak had the price at $200. now the official announcement puts it at $150.
So they have special features in the more expensive versions that will give you a competitive advantage over other players (additional starting XP presumably for every time you play, etc). That is lame, you shouldn't have to pay additional money just to compete. Bad precedent here.
