If you’re one of the many people that are planning on buying Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II physically, you’ll be in for a bit of a surprise. That’s because the game discs themselves are dummy discs, with only 72MB of memory on them.
What this means is that you’ll have to download the entire game onto your console in order to play it. This isn’t exactly ideal, but it’s something that is becoming more and more common as we move towards digital-only consoles.
Needing to download a patch for a game day one is common practice, but if you’re popped in a disc, there’s an understanding that the game itself is on that disc, meaning you could still play something, even without the day one download.
