Black Ops Gets a Pretty Lame “Limited Edition” Re-release
Usually, when a game is re-issued many months after its initial release, it’s bundled with piles of DLC, making the new package a legitimate bargain. Look at Fallout 3 GOTY, which came with $50 in extras, or Borderlands, which included $40 of DLC.
The CoD: Black Ops “Limited Edition” isn’t anything like that, though, probably because Activision is still raking in dough on the game itself and new map packs. This re-release, which will cost you a full $59.99 eight months after the game was released, comes with the game and the $15 First Strike map pack. That’s all.
The re-issue hits next week, right as the new Annihilation pack is released on Xbox Live, so I can understand that not being included. But no Escalation? That’s just cheap, Activision. My face is so obviously sad right now I bet you can see it all the way from HQ.
