Bloopers! Some Black Ops II players getting Mass Effect II discs


This is almost too hard to believe. Some US retail copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the PC have shipped with the second disc actually belonging to EA & BioWare's Mass Effect II.?


Eager players on Reddit, Steam Forums and 4chan's gaming section /v/ have all been complaining that the second disc found inside their retail copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops II actually contains all the data for a Mass Effect II install.?

Luckily the second disc isn't really needed to complete the install as when registered to the Steam account, the game becomes completely downloadable via Steam. Bad news if you've got a sloppy broadband connection or even no internet at all!?

BioWare have since stepped up to the plate and in a blog posted title "We're answering the call.." have announced that the first fifty fans that were incorrectly sent a Mass Effect II disc will be able to snag a copy of the Mass Effect Trilogy for free.?

Some cynics (me included) might see this as a deliberate marketing attempt for the Mass Effect series AND signing up to Steam at the same time? I never think the games industry does anything really by mistake. ;)

Funny how EA and Activision hate each other yet this was allowed to happen. On the plus side people who buy COD are getting Mass Effect 2, a decent game with it.

I do find this hard to believe lol. Most i had wrong with games is i was missing my Batman code but nothing a phone call couldn't fix. What does EA have to say about someone giving away there games im sure they must have something to say. The plot thickens.

I shouldn't laugh but this is a huge FAIL! For being such a huge seller this time of the year but to add another game completely to the second disc is a massive error! Do they not test the final copies or something to make sure??? Someone getting sacked this week then.....

I didn't think this would ever happen. Still I wouldnt mind having the ME3 trilogy for free.
