Call of Duty Black Ops II CEs announced

As many of you let us know, two CEs have been announced for the upcoming release of Activision’s Call of Duty Black Ops II. slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 13th, its very likely that both of these editions will be available in large quantities world wide.

Call of Duty Black Ops II Hardened Edition (PS3/Xbox 360) [NTSC] (Activision)

The Hardened Edition will retail for about $80 (USD) and feature a fancy box along with a SteelBook (G1 for 360 and G2 for PS3), a Soundtrack, some “Challenge Coins” and some bonus content: “Nuketown Zomebies” and “Nuketown 2025″ among some additional in-game weapons and other bonuses.

The PS3 release will also include some dashboard themes, while the 360 release will include some Avatar items.

Call of Duty Black Ops II Care Package Edition (PS3/Xbox 360) (Activision)

The Care Package edition will retail for about $180 (USD) and includes everything from the Hardened Edition except it looks to come in a massive crate to house all the content along with a remote controlled quad-copter based on the  “MD-27 Dragonfire Drone”. Pushing the gadget envelope even further than past releases.

    No really. I did a quick order simulation on my Amazon US account and it comes to:

    Items: $179.99
    Shipping & Handling: $12.48
    Total Before Tax: $192.47
    Estimated Tax To Be Collected: $0.00
    Import Fees Deposit $38.49

    Order Total: $230.96 which is about £146 on the good ol' FX conversion

    Im wondering, will this be overproduced like the previous CE's, or will it be more limited. I imagine stores will want to clear left over stock soon, due to the space this CE is taking up.

  7. vyvern:
    the box actually looks really nicehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey-21QYm5XY

  8. Twisted:
    this franchise is overhyped and huge!!!!!!!!!!!..there gonna churn out millions worldwide..and watch the price crash to $99 right after new years day...the company will milk the franchise for as much money as they can get,...yea borders 2 loot is somewhat limited, but that franchise is 1/10th of what call of duty is for marketing/branding sake'

  9. CollectingCanuck:
    ^: I am somewhat worried by that potential turn of events
    That's my one qualm with collecting - will an item you preorder out of panic retain its value or will retailers slash the price to hell when they don't sell. My judgement on the Darksiders and Borderlands Collector's seems to have paid off but Call of Duty doesn't exactly have a fabulous track record

  10. vhal_x:
    A lot of the bigger CEs I've seen have dropped to less than half price (or close) within a month or two. I'm looking at you, Skyrim, SWTOR, Killzone 3, Call of Duty, etc xx

  11. Chris:
    Care edition is sold out in the US

    Amazon.com
    Gamestop.com

    are all gone

    only place that you can still get this in US will be Bestbuy.com

    I believe this edition will have similar effect as Borderland 2 ultimate loot edition

  12. Lemur:
    WTF call of duty NEVER sells out

  13. Twisted:
    this happened last year..and it was restocked with the hardened edition..it's just artificial holding back so there's lots of anticipation and pent up demand..it's marketing..they will make more since they can profit pad it.

  14. Murtera:
    So I went and ordered the care package... Only concern I have is the value holding. Thought about having them hold it for a few days to see how the prices on eBay went... Any thoughts on this?

    Why would you bother about prices on ebay? Anyway from experience COD and holding value just don't go together

  16. vhal_x:
    This is definitely gonna drop, isn't it? I can't afford it haha xx

  17. Twisted:
    my gut says once they see how immensley popular care package is..they will make many more!!!..activition is not one to miss an opportunity to cash in!!!!!!!!

  18. Monstermug:
    It's sold out in game UK as well now.

  19. Twisted:
