70 MB on Call of Duty MW2 disk and that’s it

And as much to say that it is ridiculously weak. As players have noted with bewilderment, the cake only contains… 70 MB of data. This represents either 0.07223% of the total capacity of a BluRay. However, if you know the games in the series a bit, you know that the latest Call of Duty are not known to be featherweight. Between the packs for Solo mode, Multiplayer mode, Special Ops mode and Warzone, the weight of the previous Modern Warfare easily exceeded 100 GB and this MW2 is no exception to the rule.

In other words, gamers who preferred to opt for a physical version in the hope of saving storage space on their console will still have to download tens and tens of GB of data. Unsurprisingly, players cry foul at this unfortunate discovery: “I know people sometimes say that the discs only contain the licenses and you still have to download the whole game, but this is the first time that’s actually been the case. Even the previous few CODs contained some game data. Huge shame on Activision for falling so low and also shame on Sony for allowing them to print this.” blasts renowned insider Destruction Games on Twitter.
