DAILY MANIFESTO

Black Ops Special Edition Is Ridiculous

Posted on Thursday, August 12 @ 09:15:08 Eastern by
Black Ops is set to meet the absurd standard set by Modern Warfare 2. How exactly?  By being packaged with some stupidly useless crap that'll entice the rabid yearly CoD consumers just enough to plop down the expected price tag of $150.



$150?  Am I the only one who thinks that that is an absurd price to pay for ONE (1) game?  This is really how Activision manages to secure the top sales spot each holiday season.  When consumers pay twice the price of a game for their product, they certainly don't have the spare cash around for a second.  Enough about the price though because honestly, it hasn't been confirmed yet, but Gamestop's guess is as good as mine.

How about what's in the package?  If you checked out the multiplayer footage I posted the other day, you'd have noticed that a new killstreak is a controllable RC car.  Yup, that's in there.  Apparently it even shoots video and captures audio too.  Can't imagine the actual production cost for that little bonus, but it's definitely covered in the asking price.  The prestige edition also comes with contents of the hardened edition, including a metal case, 4 additional co-op maps, an Avatar outfit, and a medal for all your virtual exploits.  Oh yeah, the game comes with it too.

I got suckered into ponying up the cash for the Hardened edition of MW2, but I'm going to be spending my money on something other than Call of Duty this year.  You revolutionaries are too smart for this too aren't you?  Aren't you?  If you need more technical details, check them out below, straight from the Gamestop product page linked to above.

Edit: Here's a trailer for the Prestige Edition too.
