  • MeisseN

    Why no PC….

    • James K

      Looks like they’re a little slow revealing the PC version(check now)

  • Crumeo

    Pretty meh. If I wanted a remote control toy I’d buy one. I’ll save my dough for some maps.

  • Shadowking58

    YES IM GETTING PRESTIGE!!!!!

  • Ryanwil22

    Will Hardend Edition of Black Ops 2 Have The 4 Zombies Maps That They Said or will be just prestige edition?

    • Tjcars21

      THe only difference between the two is that collectors edition (prestige edition) has the care package and the remote controll dragonfly

  • MakeZ

    I have a question, in MW3 with the Hardened edition we had the elite maps “for free”. With black ops 2 that doesnt happen? We have to buy the maps/elite also? :(

    • ??anonymous??

      Yes

      • Lo

        no

    • Ethood1999

      We don’t know yet, Elite for Black Ops 2 is being announced next month and they’re changing some things according to @CallofDutyElite and @DavidVonderhaar

  • Miau :))

    Nothing for PC Gamers again.. RT and wait for a response https://twitter.com/luis_sdasfsd/status/240431523776577536

    • PHAT PETE

      dedicated servers

      • Idiotposteraboveme

        This. PC has almost zero reason to complain.

        • ugly_bob

          Apart from the crappy port, no option of even having Elite (exclusive to consoles for MW3 at least), and 0 support with the game unlike the consoles, not to mention the no show PC special edition versions here.

          • Murid Laly

            Pc has a dedicated team this year :O But after MW3, I’m not expecting much, so for me, it can only get better. XD

  • BADENGRISH

    Soo Trent Rezor only made theme song?

    • Elektrobanq

      It sure seems like Trent only created one song. I was really looking forward to a whole soundtrack by Trent. If you go back to the behind the scenes video that talks about Reznor and Goyer, one of the main guys from Treyarch says, “Trent Reznor is creating the score for our video game,” which makes everyone assume that he is doing the entire soundtrack just like he did for The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. I guess Treyarch just wanted to get NIN fans excited about BO2 by making them believe you would be listening to Trent’s music throughout the game, which is a crappy move. I wonder if Treyarch just asked Goyer what kind of suit the villain should wear and decided to make everyone believe that he created the essence of Menendez.

      Also, why couldn’t Treyarch tell everyone months ago that there was a Prestige and Hardened edition of the game in the works? They didn’t need to tell us many details, but just let us know whether or not we should pull the trigger and pre-order the only version of the game or wait until the other editions are revealed. It just seems like a big scheme to make more money on pre-orders because everyone who is in the dark about whether or not there will be other editions have an impulse to pre-order the only version they think will be available.

      I’m still getting the game, definitely not the prestige edition, but Treyarch needs to stop deceiving the gaming community in the future.

      • Elektrobanq

        I did some more research about the soundtrack and found that earlier posts on this website said that Reznor was doing the “theme,” so I take back that comment about Reznor and Goyer’s involvement.

      • Ethood1999

        For starters, Treyarch doesn’t control when these announcements happens. It’s all a part of Activision’s marketing campaign. Secondly, you can easily upgrade your preorder… it’s not a big deal. It takes 5 minutes to do on the phone or in store…

        • Elektrobanq

          I see your point. I just cancelled my original order with Gamestop. Since I placed my order online, I had to call their 1-800 number to cancel, but it wasn’t much trouble. Amazon is easy to cancel as well. (I have cancelled my pre-orders with Amazon multiple times now in less than a minute.)

      • Boris Guyon-Pelfrene

        Don’t sully the idea of “only the theme tune” being Trent’s as a bad thing. If you think back to Crysis 2, Hans Zimmer composed the theme of the game, but the rest of the soundtrack fit right in with it. A theme means a lot.

  • Shadowking58

    no wait… i think i’ll get hardened because the prestige edition doesn’t have the CLAW avatar item… but i want that care package SO BADLY!!! decisions…decisions…

    • GibsonD90

      Heads up buddy. They both can come with either option. They just wanted to show off both the 360 and PS3 options. If you preorder the 360 Prestige Edition you would get the 360 items. I agree it could’ve been explained better though.

      • Shadowking58

        in that case im getting prestige, YEEES IM GETTING PRESTIGE!!!!

  • xHDx

    haha bet its over £200/$300.Not worth it.lol

    • PHAT PETE

      ITS £15O , I THINK ITS WORTH IT MYSELF

  • ronald dadzie

    will you get

  • ronald dadzie

    will you get any acsess code for call of duty elite 2.0?

    • Victorezem

      might be on the coin

  • Derp

    No elite means im getting the regular edition!

    • ??anonymous??

      If you pre order you get better content than this crap

    • peppercorn

      They’re getting rid of elite, dumbass.

      • iShadowz

        theyre making elite 2.0 dumbass

        • Mmkay

          It might not involve maps this year

        • Roflwhy

          Get a life… iShadowz is correct, THERE WILL BE ELITE 2.0

      • Ciaran Mccallion7

        no their actually not elite will be in black ops 2

        • some people…

          elite is free

  • RedmenNL

    Oh yea! They posted my Intel! I have done something useful for the gaming community! Well sort off… :D

  • Coolkyledude

    Is nuketown zombies part of the preorder bonus?

    • Ethood1999

      No, only Nuketown 2025.

  • Tim Betow

    So lets see. NO ELITE. A collectable coin lol, Two themes or avatars lol, a soundtrack that ppl will get from pirate bay, nuketown 2025 which is already a pre order bonus, and nuketown zombie which will be released anyway. A metal case and cheap flying plastic drone is not worth it. No impressed by these. I rather take the 110 and buy the game and elite. Just saying.

    • peppercorn

      “nuketown zombie which will be released anyway” that’s what people said about the WaW zombie maps for Black Ops. I’d prefer not to wait 10 months.

      • Tim Betow

        So you would spend an extra 20 bucks for a map!?!

        • Ethood1999

          Yes, I will. Like the other person said, I’d rather not wait until August to play it.

          No one is forcing you to buy these, it’s okay if you don’t want to, just don’t call people idiots or insult them if they want to. Everyone is different.

          • YouAreRetarded

            I agree with Tim, you are a moron for spending 20 bucks for 1 zombie map which will eventually suck. I Suggest you go buy a PS2 game instead because Treyarch are easily grabbing your money away from you.

      • manB3ARpig

        Like many out there I love the Zombies game mode, and glad to see they will have a bonus map for purchasing either collectors editions. I could care less for the other crap that is included. I’ve been patiently waiting to pre-order for Hardened and Prestige editions to be announced, and now I feel a bit let down. WHY Treyarch? WHY? I am upset that, unlike MW3 where all future DLC was included in the Hardened edition, future DLC is not included in either Hardened or Prestige editions this time around. In a way I just feel like they let the hardcore gaming community down. Regardless I am still purchasing the Hardened edition for the extra Zombies map, but deep down I will feel like I got fisted.

      • Avatarstate7

        Id rather wait 10 months and get nuketown zombies+4-3 other maps for 15 bucks then buy 1 zombies map for 20 bucks and dont forget tax.

    • TimBetow<3

      Lawl you’re cool you like to complain and point out the flaw in things. I hope you get a trojan Bumat!rts for your idiotic music downloads. Get a job and stop complaining on the internet. Good day sir.

  • Double M

    Anyone know the price for the Hardened Edition?

    • 1993ni

      $79.99 prestige edition- $179.99

  • ??anonymous??

    • Giovanni1289

  • Brickbuilder

  • Brickbuilder

    • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

      im with you … sigh.. why do it on cod… man these ppl are mean.. why cant sony buy a contract… well you know bf3 game devs love ps3 that why we get maps guns ffirst..

  • http://twitter.com/CanvasSpots Canvas Spots

    Elite Announcement is coming next month, news via the CallOfDutyElite twitter feed:

    “Details about ELITE integration with #BlackOps2 will be coming next month. Stay tuned.”

    Edit: I just felt like adding that so far I think the Elite Beta (for Black Ops 1) has been better than Elite 1.0… If it isn’t included in one of these packages, I think I’d rather just wait, especially since there are like 3 months before DLC content comes out usually…

  • KellsyHD

    I honestly think this looks amazing especially the care package alone!

  • lm Panax

    Fuck that.. I have it pre orderd, but just the game.. Why spend an extra £20 on a zombie map which will be released anyway.. And them.you already get nuketown 2025 for pre ordering.. Kind of pointless? I want to hear more information on elite..

    • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

      there not giving out elite…

  • Brickbuilder

    Why did they insist on making hardened edition? why not get theat crap if u pre order normally?!?!?!?!?!

  • duhbullb

    does the dragonfire have a camera on it?

    • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

      no not this thing… my dad was like nooo i wanted a camera…

    • Andersnoack

      ahhhhhhhhhh :’( troede at der var kamera i den!!!!!
      nogen som har nogle links til et trådløst kamera selvmontering……

  • WhoAskedYou

    Will the hardened edition be on amazon?

  • http://twitter.com/DeathJr96R Isaac Fink

    the challenge coins apparently get you special content, so maybe it’s not as crappy as it seems

  • Elektrobanq

    For all those who are thinking of pre-ordering either the hardened or prestige edition, Amazon is advertising same day as release day delivery for both editions if you select two-day shipping. (If you have Amazon Prime, the shipping is free.) Just letting you guys know, because Amazon was not offering same day delivery a few hours ago.

  • Kevin Anthony Seepersad

    my mom think its too expensive.. could it.. imean um the game is 60$,the remote controll is probably 50-60 since its not actually 1:1 scale like the fpsrussia, the the two maps .. idk mom its pretty good… forget her im saving every penny.. i want something to show imma cod fan :D

  • STARWESTSIDE

    I’ve heard a few people say how MW3 had an elite subscription. It did NOT!! The only thing it had was a “Founder” card. It didn’t give you elite membership. All it does is give you founder status. You still have to pay extra to get the elite map DLC membership. Not to sound like a hot shot, but I own all the hardened/prestige/veteran/collector editions of ALL the call of duty games that’ve been released. So I know Modern Warfare 3 didn’t have Elite membership to download maps.

    • Stevetaylor1981

      Ur either a liar or stupid I bought hardened edition I got all the dlc for free because it came with 12 months premium elite membership either u are so stupid that u bought it and all the dlc or your a liar and u just bought the regular edition so what are u dumb or a liar

  • NEON

    wow £160 for all this. That is way not worth it. The quadrotor looks fun and all, and the nuketown 2025 and nuketown zombies sound fun, but the rest is pretty much useless crap. Oh yay special coins! I don’t care if they have a code on them, they are useless. A black ops 2 theme! Yay! Who the fuck needs a theme? and It all comes in the most expensive part of the set, the care package. That and the quadrotor are probably the reasons why the prestige is too expensive. Why do you have to go fancy. Just put it all in a box. Doesn’t need loads of manufacturing. It’s a box. Apart from the Quadrotor, Nuketown 2025 and Nuketown Zombies, this is useless to me. Do not want. Not even gonna pre-order, I’ll buy the game alone when it comes out. I’d already lost hope in Infinity Ward, with their useless maps and their inability to take ideas from their fans, but now I’m starting to get that feel from Treyarch too.

  • Bubba821

    i wanna it i have 150 $ i going 2 saving up i was just going 2 buy the game but i saw this i like it so i need 50 more $ and i can it get

  • Prenix_gk

    Wow both bundles are rip offs. NO elite, seriously? waste of money. They should change both editions, the carepackage 40$ less, and the hardened edition 15% less

  • Jace

    I rang Activision yesturday and asked if the black ops 2 hardend is the same as elite on mw3 and he confirmed it is.

  • Irishdan89

    this is such a rip off, hardened edition is 90 euro and all you are getting extra is one map, if you preorder the game you get nuketown and if you get hardened you get nuketown zombies so you are paying an extra 35 euro for one map and all the other crap you dont want. f**k off treyarch im not falling for the hype this year

  • GIANT2354

    Do you need xbox live to use the bonus zombie map or does it work without?

  • Jerry Boothe945

    Hi,
    Are you able to get dlc for black ops hardened edition for a used game and re-enter them
