German Call of Duty: Black Ops EU Ban

German website PC Games reports that German players will not be able to install localized versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops instead of the censored German edition of the military shooter. The game requires Steam activation even for retail copies, and word is that users located in Germany will not be permitted to activate versions purchased elsewhere. Thanks MCV.

huh, so the laws at fault when steam doesn't obey the age control laws for ADULT ENTERTAINMENT which exist for nearly 60 years now?

Steam is legally NOT ALLOWED to sell Adult Games or Content in Germany, 0 - Zero - Nada. And why? Because they refuse to install one of the many (even federal) age verification systems Germany has in place, because they are just too lazy, or too dumb.

I bet on the latter.
