But when I checked on COD Black Ops the same amount of points was only worth $12.00 off of $59.99
So I'm still going to wait and buy it used most likely from Amazon in a couple of months.
Till then I just reloaded MW2 and started paying it again while I wait.
Buy the 360, sell the 360, use the profit to buy the game, now you have a free game.

Win7 Ult 64

There are some issues with the game on the PC which is true, but people seem to forget that NO software on release is perfect, not even Win7 was perfect. They have done two updates and with a couple of other steps I am almost where I think the game should be as far as performance for my machine is concerned.

First, delete your config file, then reload black ops, it will regenerate the config file with all the new settings and changes from the updates. Second you need to modify your config file ESPECIALLY if you have a multi core processor such as myself. There are two lines that start like this "seta r_MultiGPU 1" and "seta r_Multicore 0" these are set for a console not a PC. You need to change the GPU to 0 and the Core to 1 then save the file.

After I did these two things I went from a 57-99% CPU usage to a steady 55%, and FPS from 30-40 up to 95+ FPS on any map. Also I would be keeping an eye on these two forums for more info as its developed because I think within a week, this game will be running smooth, lag free and stutter free easily.

ohh and i didnt know u could get out of the chair, will try that, seems cool.
The problem is that consoles are one type of hardware and are fairly easy to make games for and not have major issues worked out prior to release. With PC's there are thousands upon thousands are hardware configurations that could cause issues that would be missed. They need to design for pc and then port to console so that common configurations can be QA'ed and fixed prior to release. The console ports also are typically watered down games because of the lack of depth and functionality that a pc offers.
