Original Story

Is it even possible to not have some source at GameStop? Be it a friend, friend of a friend, or some guy you just talk to all the time at a store, we all know someone who works at GameStop. If you don’t, well then you may not know that the GameStop managers are having a little conference right now and while not much is ever announced there, this year is a little different.

To get their employees ready for the rush of November, Activision has announced the Hardened and Prestige Editions for Blacks Op 2. Hardly a surprised, sure, but news none the less. Please note, we are filing this under rumor because we will not be giving away the name of our source. As most of you know, GameStop is very strict about information with employees and far be it for us to be the cause for someone to place a call to the unemployment center.

This year’s annual Call of Duty game has a very interesting Prestige Edition. Before we’ve gotten night vision goggles and RC cars, this year… remote UAV flyer. That isn’t all, though. The following was the information given to us:


Prestige Edition

  • Remote UAV Flyer
  • Exclusive Upgrades
  • Exclusive Zombie Maps
  • Pre-Order Nuketown Map
  • Comes in a replica supply crate


As for the Hardened Edition, we didn’t get too much in the form of details with this one. We expect you’ll see everything except the flyer and special case. Last year the prices for these editions were around $80 for Hardened and $150 for Prestige so you can expect the same or at least around those price tags.

As soon as Activision and/or GameStop confirms these editions with some pretty pictures, we’ll have them posted and this updated.

    Awesome. I’m getting that prestige edition just for the exclusive zombie maps, especially with the new zombie modes can’t wait. I <3 Zombies!.

    Exclusive Zombies maps? So let me guess they get all the maps from WAW and BO, that we had to pay for already…. so fricken stupid. Activision or Treyarc whoever does this should release those maps for all, for free .

      Yeah, nobody played those extra maps because nobody else had them on Black Ops and they didn’t release them for the general public until much later on, so it’ll be the same thing here…a waste of money and hard drive space just to milk a few more bucks out of their customers until everyone can play them. The flyer sound awesome though, but it’ll probably just be a gimped AR Drone.
