I like the youtube comments:

"At least they sent you a good game."

"Disc 1 is the wrong one, obviously."
jony_dols  +   1187d ago
It's made even funnier by the fact that ME2 isn't even an Activision published game!

This one is good :

"Luckily you now have a campaign to play."

Epic WIN for EA!!!! EA game in Activision game.

LMAO this is awesome. this has to go down as one of the biggest eff ups ever.
jadenkorri  +   1186d ago
the blame is def understandable towards treyarch, but its the manufacturer who's at fault. Sucks thou for those who got on midnight release, not being able to play it right away.
DeadlyFire  +   1187d ago
At least it wasn't Black ops 3 then we would see Mass Effect 3 ghost child pop up laughing at you.
badz149  +   1187d ago
that is hillarious!
funny how it totally happened as both games are not even released closely to each other
STONEY4  +   1186d ago
What's funnier is that the Mass Effect 2 disc actually has the Black Ops 2 disc art printed on it. It looks exactly like the correct disc, until you put it in your PC. MAJOR screw up.

The Aim assist is toned WAY back in black ops 2.. It's a lot more challenging.

This is crazy, how does something like this even happen o.O?

I'll never forget buying a brand new copy of Need For Speed: Most Wanted for 360 (the 2005 version) at a Walmart BRAND NEW, getting home, ripping off the plastic and the stickers, and upon opening the case itself, saw a "AOL 500 hours free" disc.
I had a bitch of a time trying to explain the situation with customer service....

Blastoise  +   1187d ago

Maybe if the 2 biggest publishers actually OWNED their own plants, screw ups like this wouldn't happen.

well all pc versions uses valves steam so type in serial,game is activated on steam and from that point you should be able to download the game.
vitullo31  +   1187d ago
Steam saved me from extreme frustration because of this thank god for steam
BlaqMagiq24  +   1187d ago
Wow them PC owners are gonna get a shock when they open that box.
Norrison  +   1187d ago
Nope, steam downloads the rest, even though that was an epic fail
Moentjers  +   1186d ago
Well, lots of funny arguments but imagine this happening with a multi-disc XBox360 game, N4G would look like a warzone right now.
snake_eater  +   1187d ago
Pedoface right there
DeadlyFire  +   1187d ago
umm...I don't know how to answer this.

Didn't know EA and Activision shared same production lines.
pandehz  +   1187d ago
Blame the reapers
vitullo31  +   1187d ago
I was so pissed off last night when I noticed that thank god steam downloaded the rest of it! What a shock that was hahaha
kenpachi  +   1187d ago
It could have been worse.

It could have actually have been BLOPS2 Disc 2.
PS-ADDICT  +   1186d ago

What self respecting PC gamer who has possibly spent money on a good machine would want to limit the features of their own PC and buy some console port of a COD game.

Too bad the first disc wasn't Mass Effect 2 as well.
dragonrage00  +   1187d ago
does anyone else think shepperds face on the picture kinda creepy?
iamnsuperman  +   1187d ago
The guy in the video shouldn't point the blame a Treyarch. This is an extremely funny production line error by the production line company. How does an old EA game go onto a disc is beyond me
majedx9  +   1186d ago
Blu-ray FTW
TuxedoMoon  +   1186d ago
Why does a disc manufacturer mess up this badly? At least they can get the rest of Black ops 2 on steam.
Godmars290  +   1186d ago
Gosh, with things like this happening I can't see why EA got voted the most hated company in the US.
Canary  +   1186d ago
I don't think the manufacturer is owned or operated by EA. That's why this mix-up involves games from two of the biggest publishers out there (Activision-Blizzard and EA) who are in -direct- competition.

And, as many other here have stated, getting ME2 instead of Black Ops 2 seems more like a good thing than a bad thing, aside from, you know, the fact that ME2 is dirt cheap these days.

Well, not that Black Ops 2 won't be dirt cheap in a week or two.
Voyevoda  +   1186d ago
That is totally F'd up. I would be really pissed off.
Alos88  +   1186d ago
Wow, when they said the game was futuristic they meant it!

This reminds me of the way you could overwrite Famicom Disk System games, so a second hand Zelda disk might actually have Castlevania.
SITH  +   1186d ago
That is messed up big time! Lol!
Klonopin  +   1186d ago
For disc 2 I got a ps3 copy of Black Ops 2. I use it as a cup pad protector for my coffee table.
Perjoss  +   1186d ago
I'm Commander Shepard, and Blops 2 disc 2 is my favorite disc on the Citadel
