Verno is 100% correct & people need to STOP blaming Valve for this. Once again Activision/IW screw the folks that purchased it digital distribution. The PC Gamer that purchased this game deserves everything they get & I have no sympathy for them.
I don't think it so much a matter of Activision trying to screw people over since Steam clearly stated the game was only available a few days after the release date. Its more a matter of Activision still needing the retail guys to be happy enough with them to continue sell their plastic instrument music games, _______ Hero X, etc.
