Default Expensive COD Black Ops 'Collector's Edition'

And I thought paying more than 100.00 for a special edition for any game was ridiculous. This one raises the ante a lot.

Awesome!?

I hope it has a console built in with the game and that would make it even better.


Reading things like this , reminds me why I hate marketing so very...very much.

Well, I want to buy a Jeep like that because it's a good ( probably the best ) off road beast but I wont pay more just because there is a COD sticker on it. If they want to really sell it then they haev to make it a good deal and add some great fonction.

Activision is at it again setting a new standard. I so want the COD series to die off but idiot masses keep buying the dam game.

Jpeep probably don't mind. They get a sponsor from activision to do it and you pay for the option so they are double winner. I am curious to see what are the difference from a standard jeep.

Thats not really a huge increase over the base jeep, it really depends on which jeep this badge is attached to but the tires and rims alone COULD justify a $2-3,000 price difference if you go by how much jeep charges for rims and tires.
