Re: Physical DVD Release (PC) of Ground Zeroes?
Apparently the PC version of The Phantom Pain is just a DVD with the installer for the Steam client and no game data.
I read the same thing, that it only contains ~8 MB Steam installer. That is disappointing to hear but I am unsure if that is how Ground Zeroes' physical PC release was. I would guess not, since there probably would have been backlash when that was released as well. I wonder if they only included the installer on the disk due to the PC release being moved up two weeks from the original planned release date; causing them to not be able to go "Gold" in time to put the actual launch files on the disc.
It will be interesting to see if there will be subsequent releases with the content on the actual disc (This would require at least 3 or 4 DVDs though). I am really hoping they release an Integral/Substance/Subsistence-like second revision of MGSV with additional content but that seems highly unlikely given the current Kojima/Konami situation.
