I know that for many gamers, simply having Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is a deal itself, but using a game wallpaper as a pre-order incentive is absolutely hilarious. However, that’s exactly what Amazon is offering if you decide to pre-order Call of Duty Black Ops 2 from them. See for yourself here.
I can feel the pride over at the Amazon staff who wrote about the bonus: “Pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops II and get access to the Amazon exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops II Wallpaper. We will send you the URL to access the wallpaper within two days of placing your order. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com. This offer will be extended to all existing pre-orders. Limit one per customer. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time.”
Now of course, jokes aside, I don’t really think it is Amazon’s fault for this incredibly crappy pre-order bonus for Black Ops 2. The content is offered by Activision and Treyarch, so they are the ones to take the blame. And even though they know that their game is going to be a hit, maybe showing the public that they actually care about them and are willing to offer them a more substantial bonus for paying early for a game that is still months away… maybe this would be a better way to approach things.
So what do you say? On a scale from 1 to 10 how excited and delighted are you with the Black Ops 2 pre-order bonus?
