Best Buy Gives Strongest Indication Yet That Black Ops 2 Wii U Is Coming

Posted by Damien McFerran

Pre-order tags in-store now

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 coming to Wii U is starting to become gaming's worst-kept secret; although no official confirmation has been made as yet, it's looking very likely that we'll be enjoying Activision's world famous war simulation on our shiny new Wii U consoles at some point in the near future. And that's a positive thing for the system, as we argued back in May.

If you need more proof, consider this: Best Buy has begun to publicise the availability of pre-orders for the game on Wi U. While it has recently transpired that these tags are created by Best Buy employees — something which rightly got alarm bells ringing — it was later revealed by a Best Buy staff member that while the tags were indeed printed in-store, the barcode and SKU exist on the company's computer system — which could potentially be all the evidence you need that the game is headed to Nintendo's new home console.

Are you excited enough to slam a pre-order in? Sound off in the comments section below, soldier.

I hate how these rehashed fps games have dominated the industry, but let's face it, potentially having the best console version of this game on the Wii U will definitely help push sales...

If this is on the Wii U, I'll get it. If it isn't I'll hope that the next Metroid Prime has Metroid Prime Hunters style multiplayer.

Yay! Now "hardcore" gamers have no reason why they aren't buying WiiU. Nintendo is my favorite out of the big three, but I do like Sony second.
Consoles I have owned: N64, Game Cube, Wii, future WiiU owner, ps1, ps2, ps3
Handhelds I have owned: I found a green Gameboy color, Gameboy advanced, Gameboy SP, i found a Gameboy micro, ds, ds light, dsi, 3ds, psp, and psvita when the price goes down.

Watch all the morons on gamefaqs use this to say Wii U is just getting last gen ports...........which is nonsense considering this is a multiplat.

And that multiplayer trailer looked awesome might get this.

im calling it fake because every pre-order card at best buy puts the barcode on the back not the front!

@Torgo The guy in the store made the pre-order card himself, but he says it's in the computer system. "It was later revealed by a Best Buy staff member that while the tags were indeed printed in-store, the barcode and SKU exist on the company's computer system."

I got the UPC for Black Ops II yesterday from a distributor as well as some other games I was not aware of (maybe you guys already know about them but I'll list them): Family Party: 30 Great Games Obstacle Arcade, Ben 10: Omniverse, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and Skylanders: Giants — Starter Pack. I know, nothing original and some rather bland stuff.

I'm not sure if I should get this on my Xbox so I can play with my "friends" who mostly consist of people I know, but I honestly despise, or get on Wii U and play with one Nintendo fanboy I know and some people from NLife, in addition to possibly better graphics and GamePad support.

I would purchase Black Ops 2 for Wii U. I just wish they would announce stuff already so I can start to support the Wii U. :)

While i don't think i'll be getting it i hope it supports cross-platform multiplayer and / or has a lot of Wii U exclusive stuff.

At eb games in Australia they have Wii U version of Need For Speed Most Wanted for pre-order amongst the Wii U section, dummy box too. Hopefully that is real!

Except for the fact they can just play this on their PS3/360 of course! :|
