Post Malone’s gamertag and Warzone stats revealed
Austin Richard Post, known professionally as rapper Post Malone, has enjoyed much success recently in the music world. It turns out, however, that the rapper has another alias in the gaming world where he goes by the gamertag PostMaloneSucks on Xbox Live.

Call of Duty: Warzone brings standard solo mode back in update
After a short period that offered only the Buy Back mode for solo players, this week’s regular update for Call of Duty: Warzone brings back the standard solos mode.

The latest update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Xbox One is a whopping 66GB
The latest update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on Xbox One requires a whopping 66GB download, far larger than the required download sizes of its PlayStation 4 and PC counterparts.
The update, which applies several general fixes, including the removal of some maps from certain game modes, requires only a 1.2GB download on PlayStation 4 and 1.83GB download on PC. Infinity Ward blames “an unforeseen bug” with Microsoft’s patch delivery process for the excessive download size on Xbox One.
Infinity Ward assures Xbox One players that the 66GB download will not affect the overall install size of Modern Warfare or the free-to-play battle royale counterpart, Warzone, which will take up to 183GB and 99.5GB, respectively, after completing the update. This issue is a result of Xbox One players being required to re-download certain files, not add more files to their console’s hard drive.
