Surprise! Call of Duty: Black Ops Prestige Edition Announced

Those of you who thought that Modern Warfare 2’s Prestige Edition was the Holy Grail of collector sets will now bow down to the amazement that Activision has announced. Night-Vision goggles are cool and all if you’re into nighttime naughty activities or creepily spying on your next door neighbors while they undress, but it isn’t something that would perpetuate the word “fun.” It’s more of a molester gadget than anything else. But if molester-esque gadgets are your thing, you’ll love what Activision has in store for you now.

With the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops right around the corner, Activision has announced new and intricate editions of the game to release with the regular launch title. See that picture above? That’s the Prestige Edition for Black Ops which comes with a working RC car complete with a camera that provides TFT color video and audio to its operator (which is shown in the game’s multiplayer trailer).

Now that you have your “Do It Yourself Pervert Set” almost complete with the Night-Vision goggles and the sneaky RC car, you’ll want to shoot your attention away for a second and also glance at the pictured Black Ops medallion, an exclusive Xbox Live Avatar outfit (not too sure what the PC and PS3 versions will get instead), and four co-op multiplayer maps for you and your friends to go nuts in. The Hardened Edition will receive just about everything pictured above with the exception of the RC car.

What are you expected to pay for this? No price has yet been listed, but retailers have placed the Hardened Edition at $79.99 and the Prestige Edition at $149.99. Once we get details on the actual prices, we’ll fill you guys in. Now, any takers on what the next Call of Duty will have for its Prestige Edition? Since they’re going for this whole mobile perv thing, I’m aiming for sticky and/or worm cameras that you can use under doors, or place in bedrooms a la Splinter Cell. Any takers?
