No Black Ops for Germany unless authorised by Steam

Germany’s strict game rating system has claimed another victim; EU versions of Call of Duty: Blacks Ops have been banned. That’s pretty huge news for what’s probably the biggest release this year. However all is not lost for German shooter fans; you can still get a localised version of the game that’s authorised by Steam.

This method does require an activation from Steam though, so there’s no chance of importing a copy on PC. We guess PS3 players might still be able to get their hands on it, but aside from that it seems like fans are a little bit stuck.

Perhaps there will be news on an edited version before the game’s launch of November 9th.
