Yea and it activates on Steam anyways, doesn't it?
Yep, it uses VAC/Steamworks.

One thing is for sure...this game will end up running 60fps/max

The one thing i am not sure is if they will let us edit the cfg file / console command to change the fov.

I should think that the mp_cfg's would be editable, if they are from day 1 mine would look like...

com_hunkmegs 1024
cg_brass 0
r_Dlightlimit 0
r_specular 0
r_fastskin 1
cg_fov 74
r_distortion 0
r_drawsun 0
cl_maxpackets 100
seta rate 2500
com_maxfps 250
r_aaalpha (supersampled)
r_aasamples 4
r_glow_allowed 0
r_rendererpreference shader model 3.0
bind F11 toggle cg_drawfps 1 0
bind MWHEELUP weapnext ; wait 2 ; weapnext (not sure if this will work in blackops, it didnt in mw2...but thats mw2)

250 fps guaranteed and nice visible maps with smooth as silk animation, reg and no lag.

Ditto.

I don't care for the MP so it boils down to $60.00 for a 4 hour campaign.

I'll pass.

$5 is $5 (being broke ftl). Id like to think they would bring it down to $45 or $50 instead of paying for the full $60.

My point is that even now CoD: MW2 is $60, and I can't recall the last time I saw a reasonable sale for it. Likely this wont be discounted all that much, if at all- come holiday season.

Seriously?

This alone might make the game worth while.
