For the uninitiated, last week was similar in terms of players getting frustrated by the increased installation size of Modern Warfare 3. Early reports claimed that it would consume around 220 GB of space on all the supported platforms, thanks to the ‘High-rez’ assets alongside the main content of Campaign, Multiplayer, and Zombies.

Later, however, it was clarified by the makers themselves. They stated that players can reduce the file size according to what they want to keep. The devs mentioned that the final overall size of MW3 will be actually smaller than the previous COD titles combined.
