You know those night vision goggles that came with the Modern Warfare 2 Prestige Edition? Well, there's something for those looking to get the Prestige Edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops as well.

If you saw the multiplayer video, you probably caught a glimpse of an RC car carrying some explosives. It's called the RC-XD and that's what you're going to get with the Black Ops Prestige Edition. The car's got a range of up to 200 feet and has a camera on board to send back color video and audio.

The Prestige and Hardened Edition of the games do include four extra cooperative maps so there are some things that will be included in the game as well for you to play around with. The special editions will come out for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 while the PC gets the shaft again.
