You knew the rumor had to be at least partly accurate.

And mere hours after that supposed GameStop leak, Activision came forward with the official details outlining the Hardened Edition and "Care Package" (supplanting the Prestige Edition) for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 iterations of Call of Duty: Black Ops II . They also announced a special Deluxe Edition for PC, which you can check out at the game's official site .

Here's the loaded Care Package, which will retail for $179.99:

— Call of Duty: Black Ops II

— Remote Controlled MQ-27 Dragonfire Drone – Command cutting-edge technology, exclusively for this once-in-a-lifetime combat collection.

— Nuketown Zombies Bonus Map – Battle hordes of Zombies in this beloved 1960s nuclear neighborhood.

— Nuketown 2025 Bonus Map – Relive the close quarters chaos of this classic fan-favorite map re-imagined in a 1960s visionary depiction of the "model home of the future."

— Collectible 2-Sided SteelBook – Limited edition game case featuring exclusive artwork.

— (2) Challenge Coins – Limited edition challenge coins that serve as your key to exclusive digital content.

— Weapon Camo – Rank-up in style with an exclusive multiplayer weapon skin. (2) Player Card Backgrounds – Liven up any killcam with two exclusive player card backgrounds, inspired by Nuketown 2025 and Zombies.

— Official Call of Duty: Black Ops II Soundtrack – A digital copy of composer Jack Wall's epic in-game score with Theme by Trent Reznor.

— Xbox LIVE CLAW Avatar Prop – An exclusive avatar prop, deployable to a dashboard near you.

— Xbox LIVE Zombies Avatar Costume – Show off your pride with an avatar costume built exclusively for fans of the Call of Duty undead.

Note: PlayStation 3 versions include a dynamic multiplayer theme of the Turbine map as well as a dynamic Zombies theme that shows off Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies.

And here's what's in the Hardened Edition, which will go for $79.99.

— Call of Duty: Black Ops II

— Nuketown Zombies Bonus Map – Battle hordes of Zombies in this beloved 1960s nuclear neighborhood.

— Nuketown 2025 Bonus Map – Relive the close quarters chaos of this classic fan-favorite map re-imagined in a 1960s visionary depiction of the "model home of the future."

— Collectible 2-Sided SteelBook® – Limited edition game case featuring exclusive artwork.

Well I might not really be into call of duty and I kinda only buy 1 every 3-4 entries lol But I really like the fact that they give you such awesome packages for collectors. I wish all games would release a couple of extreme collector editions like that.

I was going to get the Hardened Edition but no Elite means I'll stick with the regular version.

Lol!! So they want you to pay an extra $100 for that Remote control Dragonfire thingy?! That's the only difference between the two packages it seems!
