Version that was on sale in Slovakia

As spotted by, what looks like a retail PS3 version of the game's Hardened Edition was yesterday being listed by a private seller on Slovakian website

The product listing in question has since been deleted.

Photos of the product that was up for sale match official images of the Black Ops 2 Hardened Edition, but there was no image of the game disc itself or any accompanying footage to prove its legitimacy. It was also on sale for just €40, about half of its retail value.

When contacted by CVG, Activision declined to comment on reports that the game is already on sale ahead of the Black Ops 2 release date of November 13.
