Of course the biggest game of the year is going to have a shed-load of midnight launch events! 4,408 GameStop stores across the nation will be holding festivities for Call of Duty: Black Ops starting at 9:30PM the night before launch. Fans can enter the "going camo" face painting trivia contests and pre-ordering the game 48-hours in advance of the release will get you 250 PowerUp Reward bonus points.
Best Buys, Toys R Us, WalMarts and more will also be selling the game at midnight on November 9 and it looks like WalMart will have the best exclusive. 2,700 WalMart stores will be giving away the above Black Ops bandannas to the first 50 people waiting in line. Neat!
