OK, this is a weird one. Gamers of a certain age might remember compilation packs. Usually only released for home computers in the 80’s and early 90’s, compilation packs from certain developers bundled together several titles which had reached budget price points, with a loose theme like the movies, or sports etc. Getting four or five games for the price of one new one was a great idea for cash-strapped parents, and Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amiga owners used to receive them usually as Christmas presents. Anyway, enough nostalgia! These days the only bundle packs we tend to see are HD re-releases or special editions of the same game series. That is unless you are a PC owner who decides to buy Black Ops II…
Yes that’s right, for some strange reason several purchasers of the PC version of Black Ops II are receiving the correct version of disk 1 in the box, but disk 2 is actually the PC version of Mass Effect 2. This would be a great deal of course, if Black Ops II actually installed with just one disk, alas it doesn’t – leaving PC owners with a 2 year old RPG instead of the cutting-edge shooter they actually wanted.
This issue doesn’t seem to be restricted to a few users, as many people on several forums are reporting it. No statement has come from Activision as yet, but it appears to be a production line issue. Anyone out there affected, or are you all playing Black Ops II on console?
