'Call of Duty: Black Ops' Collectors Editions Revealed

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ Collectors Editions Revealed

If you thought the night vision goggles of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 were a tad extreme, you haven’t seen anything yet. With Call of Duty: Black Ops coming soon, it’s no surprise there are going to be two collectors editions, the Hardened and the Prestige, coming out exclusively for the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

First, the Hardened Edition. With the Hardened Edition, consumers will receive four exclusive multiplayer maps, a Black Ops Avatar costume and a custom Black Ops limited edition medal. Gamestop.com is listing the Hardened Edition for $79.99, the average price for collectors editions of games.

With the Prestige Edition, this is where things get a little crazy. In the Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer trailer, we saw for the first time the RC-XD. The RC-XD is a remote controlled car that not only lets players shoot through levels at blinding speed avoiding enemy fire while relaying video of other parts of the battlefield, it also gives the player a chance to detonate a small bomb at the feet of their opponents.

With the Prestige Edition which is being listed at $149.99, buyers will receive a working RC-XD remote controlled “Surveillance Vehicle has a fully-functioning remote camera that transmits both TFT color video and audio to its operator.” The RC-XD will have a range of up to 200 feet, though sadly it will not come loaded with explosive charges.
