Here’s The Underwhelming Black Ops 2 Pre-Order Goodies

The pre-order goodies for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 have shown up on a few select retail sites and they are nothing short of underwhelming. For instance, if you decide to pre-order the game with Amazon what will you actually get? Well, you will receive a free digital wallpaper. Not exactly the best pre-order incentive I’ve ever seen, but then again, does the Call of Duty series really need pre-order incentives?

  • Amazon¬†– Free Call of Duty: Black Ops II digital wallpaper with your pre-order.
  • Best Buy¬†– Free Call of Duty: Black Ops II dog tag with your pre-order.
  • GameStop¬†- Free 2-sided Call of Duty: Black Ops II posters and free Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 prestige token for PUR members (Xbox 360 and PS3 only) with your pre-order.

Update: I’ve been informed in the comments that GameStop will have additional pre-order incentives which weren’t listed by the source. Apparently you will be eligible to receive four downloadable items which can be used in-game, if you pre-order as soon as possible.

  1. Incorrect.

    Preorder at GameStop and you get the poster and FOUR downloadable items, but you don’t get all four if you wait to make your reservation.

    If you do it now you get the MW3 prestige token plus three as-of-yet-unnamed digital items. If you wait until June, you miss out on the MW3 prestige token. Wait longer, and miss more free stuff.

  2. Just FYI, Gamestop has three additional pre-order bonuses that are going to be coming out in waves. No idea what they are yet, thought you’d like to know that.

  3. Pre-order incentives like these are meant to draw people to retailers specifically rather than to buy the game itsefl.
