I just thought I'd share this great deal with HH.
If you purchase Black Ops through Direct2Drive it is possible to get it for US$44.96 if you apply the promo code "bigsavings" when you checkout (the normal retail price through Direct2Drive is US$59.95)
The promo code takes 25% off most games but it is "not available for pre-orders"
The sale ends "Monday @10am" (not sure which time zone)
As the NZ dollar is quite high at the moment it cost me just under NZ$60 for Black Ops when the RRP for a retail copy here is NZ$119 - So on D2D it is about half price! [:D] Through the Steam Store Black Ops is US$90 which is extremely expensive in my opinion.
The Release Date on Direct2Drive is November 9th, 2010 at 7AM PST so as far as I know D2D will send those who purchased it through D2D a Steam Key at that time so you can activate Black Ops through Steam. You can also download the game after purchasing (7.4GB) to be ready for when it unlocks! [:)]
Don't miss out! [:O]
