Black Ops sold early for £200

Critical Gamer writes: Are you one of the millions of people looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops? If so, just how excited are you? Two people were looking forward to it so much, they were prepared to pay over £200 each to get a copy just a few days early – as these pictures prove.

Somehow, one UK gamer managed to get hold of not just one but two copies of Black Ops for the Xbox 360 to sell on ebay. We’ve hidden his/her ebay ID here, but it will be easy enough for anybody – including Activision – to discover it by searching Completed Listings.

Would you spend that sort of money just to get it a few days early, I hope they know they can't play online

They can play online, there have been leaked videos of Zombies being played in online co-op, as well as competitive multiplayer. I agree, I wouldn't spend that much to get any game early, but lucky for me I have a mom and pop store on my block, so I might be able to pick this up tomorrow :)

Didn't know that, thought the server were down till launch

Na every online MP game has the servers turned on well before launch to ensure they are up and running properly come release. Reach's servers were up and running well over a week before it was released. I got Splinter Cell Conviction almost a week early and the servers were up. It was pretty cool though because since I got it so early, the only people I kept playing with were the developers, apart from the few random people I got paired up with.
