Would you pay $180 for the Call of Duty Black Ops II limited edit...

It would be an understatement if we said that Call of Duty Black Ops II is one of the most anticipated games of 2012. In the past few years, Activision has launched quite a few interesting limited edition packages for the Call Of Duty games (remember the one that came with the night vision goggles?).

For Call of Duty Black Ops II, Activision is going all out and releasing a $180 limited edition of the game that comes with a lot of goodies. The biggest highlight of the package is a Remote Controlled MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone. That's right, you get a drone that actually flies. Apart from a flying drone, there are a bunch of other goodies that you get. The details of the “Care Package” limited edition are as follows.
