Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Retailer Incentives Are, Well, Eh

Another year, another Call of Duty, another round of pre-order incentives brought to you by the retailers. This season, Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop are trying to woo customers to their side with a variety of different pre-order incentives that aren't, well, groundbreaking:

  • Amazon: Free Call of Duty: Black Ops II digital wallpaper with pre-order.
  • GameStop: Free 2-sided Call of Duty: Black Ops II posters with pre-order.  Free Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 prestige token for PUR members (X360/PS3 only).
  • Best Buy: Free Call of Duty: Black Ops II dog tag with pre-order.

It's also important to note that GameStop has several additional incentives in store (if you go to the link) that will be revealed at a later date. I mean, when does GameStop actually "lose" these pre-order incentives, anyway? They are called GameStop for a reason.

But I wonder, do any of you really care about these pre-order incentives? Do they actually make you pre-order at one retailer over another?
