Default Limited Edition Laser Cell for Call of Duty Pre-Orders

Amazon.com has recently changed their pre-order bonus on the Upcoming Call of Duty Black-Ops from a $20 off credit to a Limited Edition Laser Cell. This is valid for all versions of the game.


The first 100,000 to pre-order since the change will receive the cell, as well as a downloadable computer wallpaper version.

By comparison GameStop's Pre-Order Bonus is a "high-altitude flight suit skin" for your Xbox Live or PS Home Avatar.

LOL - Only 100,000 this is going to be super rare.

I stand by my decision to boycott the entire series, it's fast becoming another FIFA, madden, tiger, re- run after re-run.

I'll pick up the cell for £2-3 about 2 weeks after the game releases.

Activision wants more money. Recently they suggest to charge extra for Starcraft II cutscene. LOL. Those guys are the worst of the worst.

^not just StarCraft cut-scenes....

the impression I got is that they'd like to do this across all of their games and just used StarCraft as an example.

So is the cell a tangible wallpaper kind of thing? Also how would you know if you're the first 100,000 anyway?

Also, new to the forum, been visiting for awhile to check on CE/LEs. Collector myself. (:

The pre-order bonus is exclusive to Amazon, when the first 100,000 stock allocation has been pre-ordered, the bonus will be removed from their listing.

Also note that anyone that pre-ordered prior to the unveiling of the bonus ,will also get the cell aswell and they are at front of the queue.

To be honest I wouldn't worry about not getting the Cell, I mean 100k copies is a hgh amount for one store. Even if they run out they will be dirt cheap 1-2weeks after release.

Oh really? Where would I be able to purchase one of the cells you think afterward? Thinking maybe Amazon or EBAY?

Ebay will have plenty afterwards, Amazon Market place is unlikely to have them.

I think the best place will be forum classifieds, they tend to have the lowest price.

By forum classifieds you mean this forum?

It's unlikely you will get it from this forum.

It depends on which country you are from, for the UK avforums is good.
