Call of Duty: Black Ops Prestige Edition Comes with RC Surveillance Vehicle


Just like Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops will be available in two special editions — Hardened and Prestige — when the game ships on November 9th. Official prices haven’t been given, but retail listings set the two SKUs at $80 and $150, respectively. Those are the same prices as MW2, in case you were wondering.

If you ask me, the Black Ops Hardened Edition is a slight downgrade from MW2, containing a collectible medal with display case, a SteelBook case, an Avatar outfit, and four exclusive co-op maps. That’s opposed to MW2, which came with an art book and a download code for Call of Duty remastered in HD.

However, the Black Ops Prestige Edition, which also includes all content from the Hardened Edition, definitely trumps MW2‘s, swapping out the night vision goggles for a fully functional RC surveillance car with an on-board camera and microphone capable of transmitting audio and color video back to the remote’s 2″ backlit TFT 220 x176 color screen from upwards of 200 feet away. The RC-XD is modeled after the one featured in the game’s online multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Hardened and Prestige Editions will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 only. Standard editions will be available for DS, PC, PS3, Wii and Xbox 360.
