According to the info of the box of the game in this video, it comes in a 50GB blu-ray disc. It's crazy if all games together are bigger than 50 GB!

No, the info of the box only tells that at least 50 GB on the HDD should be available (probably for the full installation of the trilogy including some wiggle room for patches).

It doesn't tell anything about the capacity of the Blu-ray (single layer 25 GB or double layer 50 GB) or how much of that capacity is used.

And even a game that needs 50 GB installed on the HDD can fit on a 25 GB optical disc or in a 20 GB download due to compression. The data then gets uncompressed during the installation.



Yeah, this ain't my first rodeo.... Haven't bought an Activision game in 10 years ( COD:WOW ). Because they suck. They sucked then. They suck even worse now. I still buy cd's too. :)

If not actually owning the things you buy and having to wait for long ass downloads is "progress" now, having no or shit internet be damned. The whole point of buying physical is NOT having to wait for downloads.

Fuck Activi$ion and fuck digital.

You can struggle or you can adapt, but stopping the progress won't happen. A 100% digital distribution is inevitable. Current generations don't even know anything else. It started with music, then movies and now games. The next step is not even having data stored on your devices anymore because it's all streamed. Music and movies have completed that step already.

That "not owning" thing is a console only problem, though. Media on PC and mobile are on your device and accessible and manipulable as you wish. Completely locking you out from the content you own is what consoles do because they're closed systems. I do very much own all of my Steam, Uplay, Origin and Blizzard games and if their services will ever go down at some point there will be ways to access your data without their involvement.

Digital data isn't the problem, after all, the data on your discs and harddrive is digital. The issue is DRM and consoles are to the brim full with it.
