Considering that the Hardened Edition and Care Package Edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 were only just announced, it’s pretty amazing that they’re already in the Top 10 list of games sold on Amazon. The Xbox 360 version of the Hardened Edition is currently ranking at number 4 while the PlayStation version of the Hardened Edition is in spot 8. The Care Package Edition for Xbox is ranked at number 6. The PlayStation version of the Care Package is in spot 11.
This is really the only response anyone needs to the COD haters who have cited the $180 price tag of the Care Package as unreasonable. Surely no one would ever pay that much just to get a video game. Clearly there are a ton of gamers who beg to differ. The numbers prove where the gaming community stands on this one. Considering that the basic version of the game is retailing for around $60.00, it’s actually pretty surprising that the Care Package at around triple the price has reached the sixth and eleventh spots on the video game sales ranking list! This proves the devotion of fans to the franchise, as well as the excitement around the next game. Those video game analysts who were worried that Call of Duty is past its heyday had better rethink where they stand, because this is hard evidence that the best days for COD are yet to come. Black Ops 2 will undoubtedly be a hit when it comes out on November 13th.
Haven’t reserved your copy yet? Remember that collectible editions are limited edition and will sell out, so get in there before they do. After November 13th there won’t be any more limited editions left to buy new, and you also won’t be able to get the great pre-order bonuses like the Nuketown 2025 and Nuketown Zombies maps!
