Modern Warfare 2 PS5 disc has just 70mb of data

Modern Warfare 2 PS5 disc has just 70mb of data

Ok, this is cheeky.

Did you purchase Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II for PlayStation 5? If so, set aside some time for the game to download and install, because the disc contains only 70 megabytes of data.

No, unfortunately, this is not due to some magnificent new-gen magic that means the game is compressed yet still looks as beautiful as possible on the hardware. As per these screenshots from MaxSchmerz on the DoesItPlay Discord server, shared by YouTuber Destruction Games, we see that there are 70 megabytes present on the Modern Warfare II disc. DoesItPlay is a community of players that do exactly what it says on the tin - it checks whether or not recent releases are installable without an Internet connection.

Evidently, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II fails this test with flying colours. It's not the only offender. The physical PS5 copies of Resident Evil: Village Gold Edition contain a disc for the base version of the game and a single-use DLC code in the box. Ergo, the DLC is attached to one account and the Gold Edition won't work for those who pick it up pre-owned.

"What does this have, the DS version of the game," questioned a player. "The environmental impact to produce the discs, cases, ship to suppliers and then deliver to customers only for it to not be usable is a disgrace," added another. Some have seized this opportunity to cancel their physical pre-order on PS5, either in protest of Activision's approach, or to swap to a digital copy of the game to save themselves the trouble. And, it's not known whether this will be the case with all physical pre-orders for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but it's still left a sour taste in our mouths.
