So no Call of Duty Elite included this time? I figured as much. That was the main reason I got the Hardened Edition for MW3. It was a pretty good value given the cost of map packs. I guess i'll be doing the Best Buy $20 promo pre-order deal which is likely to be the best deal available. Anyone know if Best Buy is doing the $20 promo on these Hardened or Care Package versions?

That care package does look pretty cool. Ive learned too many hard lessons buying the expensive editions only to see it on close out at my best buy for $40.

I'm not a fan of zombies mode, at all.

Play it maybe 2 or 3 times, it feels like a drag.

Even played with friends, I can't stand it. Any horde mode type of game to be honest.

Didn't catch my interest in World at War or Black Ops. I love the MP though.

Now that exclusive camo and playercard catches my interest, but I wouldn't pay an extra $20 just for that.

They still have CoD Elite, just isnt included with hardened/care package.

I didn't realize Trent Reznor is doing the theme, that's pretty cool. Dunno if I wanna drop an extra $100 for an RC drone. I'm in for hardened edition though.

Looks like a toolbox to me. At that price they should send a real soldier a care package on your behalf.

Eh, do they divulge how much from game sales actually goes to this endowment? Or how much they donate a year? I still would much prefer a "Order this version, we will donate this" type commitment over a vague charity commitment.

Well, they did do this last year, with 100 percent of tickets sales going towards it.

That sounds like a cool event/great idea by them. So it seems their charity is more than just a formality.

Still, at $180 for a care package themed edition, I think an actual care package commitment would be good.

Looks like Elite is not included. I would have bought the Hardened, now I'll just wait for a good deal on the regular copy.

It's more likely that they will be on clearance and easier to get since they don't come with elite. At least that's wht I think will happen.

That explains why it is only $79.99 for hardened compared to $99.99 for MW3 hardened.

The care package will probably take up a nice chunk of shelf space, so yeah it will go on clearance.

You (we) may luck out and get a bizarre clearanc cycle on these similar to the Black Ops Prestige Editions but when was the last time that a COD: CE just sat on a shelf for a year after release?

That just doesn't happen. There is too much gloabal demand for these games. Most likely these will go OOS prior to release---even if for just a few days and people will be paying significant money on eBay to obtain them. Then any left on store shelves will be bought if just to make some profit.

I would put a preorder in if you are on the fence because you can always cancel later

I'm already good with the standard version from BB with $20 RZ. Not going to pay $180 for anything COD. ;)

preordered one of each for the ps3. Hardened edition will sell out on day 1, and I hope the care package hits clearance racks. But you never know these days, especially if people are willing to drop $150 for the Borderlands Ultimate Edition. Almost $200 after taxes is pretty ridiculous for a video game.

Oh you know they will...the "exclusive" (read:recycled from WaW) zombie map DLC from the first Black Ops Prestige/Hardened editions were eventually included in a map pack.

Going to upgrade my GS preorder to Hardened. I remember what a BITCH it was to find a Black Ops 1 Hardened Edition after lauch...not going to take chances this time. The Care Package looks nice but I have too much crap in my house as it is and my kids would destroy the drone anyway.

For now, it does seem like its exclusive to those packages and not a pre-order bonus.
