Black Ops 2 released early by retailer
News of an early release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 gives us the impression that retailers are starting to get their stocks of the upcoming blockbuster game ready to release worldwide. It seems that a Slovakian retailer has been selling the game prior to expected launch date with a customer acquiring the Hardened Edition for PS3.
Some may feel this is a leaked of downloaded copy but apparently this is a full retail Hardened Edition packaged with all in tow. This is reported on the Black Ops 2 forum as they also wonder whether other retailers have their copies already, and if any bans or suspensions will be imposed considering this has been legitimately purchased. Last year when K-Mart sold MW3 early in the US, there was news that Microsoft threatened bans for playing this prior to its release, although this never come to fruition.
This has caused some gamers to wish they were Slovakian, expecting other countries to pre-release Black Ops 2, before Slovakia, as others countries generally get these games first. In other relative news, a couple of weeks ago we spoke about the leaked copies of Halo 4, although these have not been obtained through a retailer, so those intending to play the game on-line will see an inevitable ban. This comes from Microsoft who will issue permanent bans to those stupid enough to experience the game through their Xbox Live setup.
In addition, our latest Black Ops 2 post we wrote about how games like this are being used to promote a new range of LG 3D TVs, as this seems like the ideal way to show off their product. With the first Black Ops game being released on 3D, we expected more, although we can guarantee the experience is much better than it was 2 years ago. The footage is from the single-player campaign showing their TV’s are one of the best ways to enjoy the game, yet some gamers would rather use the 2D option, due to the higher frame rate.
Out of all the TV’s on sale what is your ideal set up to play games like Black Ops 2, do you prefer other TV’s like Samsung, Sony or Panasonic?
