Never played Zombies in W@W, but hear that it was a mode unlocked AFTER finishing the campaign. Is this the same for Black Ops? Had originally planned on only getting the regular version, but if Zombie mode is available as a STANDARD game mode, then I may as well get the Hardened edition.
Wonder when the 4-maps will be available as a DLC and if they'll make PS3 players wait another 30-days after XBOX Live players. That would be so hobo.
I don't have my flashed Xbox hooked up to the internet, so I can't comment on online stuff, but for Solo Zombies, you can play one map right off the bat. After playing, and completing, the campaign on regular I unlocked a second Zombie map to play. I'm not going to bother with Veteran until my legit copy arrives, so I'm not sure if you get a third map after beating it on that difficulty.
