Two In One Bundle?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 was released on Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Many people were excited for the launch and were willing to skip sleep to wait outside in the cold for the stores to open. To their disappointment, when trying to install Disc 2 of the PC version, they got a Mass Effect 2 installation disk instead. Consumers now have to wait for the Steam digital version to download and install the game.

Sadly, the consumers can't return the disc to the retailer, therefore making their physical copy of Black Ops 2 useless and must rely on the Steam code to activate the game. How did an EA game end up in a Activision retail package? Both Treyarch and Activision have not acknowledged this problem and have not presented a solution.
