Dead Rising 3 receives massive 13GB update

But what does it actually contain for the open-world zombie mulcher?

Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 has received a whopping 13GB update.

Xbox studio manager Mike Ybarra took to Twitter to say "wow, a 13GB DR3 update? Holy... good thing I have 110mbps."

The game's first DLC pack, Operation Broken Eagle, is scheduled to be released on January 21. There's a total of four packs arriving, and many people have speculated that the update is packed with content to prepare for these.

Capcom has not yet officially detailed what the update contains.

Users who have downloaded the update are reporting that the update does not add 13GB to the game's installed size.

That's like a whole game, or a dozen, depending on what year you're thinking of. I still play games that are far less than 1 GB.

And Microsoft wanted to go all-digital online-only...

It's embarrassing that I've had a 900Kbps connection since 2004 (Verizon DSL). Time for me to finally upgrade to Verizon FioS :D

Capcom gets tired of on-disc DLC so they're trying a new thing called on-update DLC...

I live in a small town in west viginia( no jokes please) just upgraded from 30mb to 50 on my internet ,fastest i can get here. Plus the conpany put a cap on the data a couple months ago. I get 250gb a month used to get unlimited. Man after the last steam sale and and free games off psn and xbox live im going over this month. Plus i download some movies off the internet maybe a shouldnt but its so damn easy. They charge you $10 for every 50gb you go over not to bad, your average person wont even come close to there limit. Last time i talked to my cable company they told me that me and one other person went over there limit in my area . Digital copies are going to be hard for consoles to switch to if they keep limiting are bandwidth, and games getting to the 20-50gb range

Streaming, might very well be the best thing for console people in the future then. Are console gamers willing to go and buy 5'000 - 10'000 GB's of space?


I do on PC, but are console gamers willing to do this?  Games are only going to get larger.

In 2020 maybe a significant number of gamers will have access to 110 mbps and 13 gb of data will be really nothing, but right now this sounds absurd to say the least.

the x1's 500gb is just like the 360's 20gb back in the days… seemed like okay at first… a couple of months later it's already overloaded...

They couldn't figure out how to make patches, so you're going to have to download the entire game again. On the plus side, it totally fixes, like, four typos in the game's script.

My friend told me about the update last night and I assumed it would be in preparation for the DLC, I really should blog my shit sooner...

Step Two: Spread cheeks

If there was a "NO THANKS, LET ME PLAY COOP WITH MY FRIEND WHO ALSO DOESN'T WANT THE UPDATE" option, it wouldn't be AS bad but this is honestly ridiculous if it's not just an optional DLC thing. If MS wants to provide limitless bandwidth and HD space, fine. But don't make mandatory updates that if declined render online disabled. "Here's a 500GB HD, now we're going to clog it up with crap you don't need." You'd f'ed people enough already without adding that to the list. 

This Gen is off to a pretty terrible start with these kinds of things. I for one have a 20GB allowance for the month because 4G is the only gaming internet around here. I could bump up to 30 but still that's half of the month gone for something I have zero interest in. Only reason I got the X1 was for a couple exclusives. KI and DR3. If the PS4 has the same sort of thing... ugh, I might just roll NES and DC. The X1 is already slow as crap trying to save a clip or read a message or do anything. It won't let you do anything but launch a game without a connection. Can't even make an offline profile. And right now, KI just crashes to the dashboard because I haven't gotten the 3+GB update I guess. No idea. I was going to delete my save file but I see there's no way to see your files. The storage info is nowhere to be found. How much room is used? How much room is left? Where are the installs? Saved games? Updates? I have no idea. So basically it's just being used for BF4. And all of these huge updates and limited bandwidth mean a bunch of "Hey man, can I bring my XBOX over to your house this weekend? Yeah... the F'er needs another 38GB update." A real pain in the ass for a couple of games. I don't expect the X1 collection to get very big unless things change. And I don't expect they will, at least not for the better.

These next gen consoles needed to be fitted with much MUCH bigger hard drives. More storage isn't even optional... you NEED it.

please correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that there's actually no such thing as unlimited bandwidth. I was told that the ISP's that supposedly provide 'unlimited bandwidth', or no bandwidth cap, just have an arbitrary undisclosed cap, in which when the consumers pass this limit, they just begin to throttle the data transfer rates. If you read the fine prints in your contracts, all ISP's reserve some kind of right to upgrade your internet plan, throttle the connection, or suspend the account.

@zzz802 could be truth, I have to deal with that on Steam when a new DLC is released.

@blkgsr I envy you sir. I live in a rural area of a big city in Brazil. The best deal I can get here is 1mbps with a 20gb download limit.


If updates of this size become the norm, the X1 and the PS4 are out of my league. :(

@blkgsr not sure what's worse, having high speed bandwidth with download cap or unlimited download with lower speed…. (in my case I'm stuck with 10mbps and unlimited bandwidth, no download cap whatsoever… but 10mbps is way too slow nowadays……)

@Rheinmetal the absurdity are that the facts the HDD is not enough for the standards the "next" gen has set, for blu-ray games install and such, and the obligatory updates that we all know that is "optional" DLC that some may have not interested in getting…

@TheWatcher000leave more free space, so your comment can get more audience, next-gen commenting.

@devilzzz2014 im up to 7 TB's right now. lol and its almost all full, my STEAM games alone take up like 1TB. Which isnt that much, because almost all of them are older games.

@GlaciusXL Not to crap on your parade but Xbox One 500gb HDD is really only about 360gb of free space not 500gb... so yeah... there is that.


Hope MS sees the error they have made and quickly release the Xbox One Elite with 750gbHDD so I can buy that one as well, in time for Dragon Age 3 or Witcher 3.


Sadly Xbox is my prefered console over PS4 but you have pretty much said what many of us have been thinking, and with companies forcing hugh updates (hugh in terms of limited space not comparison to other more liberal mediums like PC) and filling much of the patch/update with DLC filler leaves a sour taste knowing this flaw will be exploited later on in system cycle.

@Oogazi Of course.. but what unlimited bandwidth does mean is that you'll always be able to browse or play games.. The only thing throttling will affect is big downloads, it won't stop them, but it'll slow them down.

@NTM23 They're not and I can tell you this as an Xbox One owner. Installs of the games themselves are absurdly slow with something like Dead Rising 3 taking upwards of 40 minutes to install, one of the faster installs actually Call of Duty: Ghosts was 75 minutes. Updates take even longer to download. I had a Forza 5 update that was 5GB around Christmas and it took a good 3 hours to download. Now I have a good internet connection, I can download something like Max Payne 3 (36GB) on Steam in about 2 hours so it seems Xbox Live just isn't configured right for downloads like this. So far Xbox One for me has been issue after issue with most stemming from crap like this..

@Breyant if a game needs a mandatory patch the console will automatically download it while in sleep mode

@Toplinkar I live in Curitiba, and although I can get up to 150mbps, it's completely out of my budget as of right now…. 10 to 20mbps are what is affordable and what works for us mere mortals that likes unlimited bandwidth, no download limit crap...

@KidsNDad@GlaciusXLIt's pretty much the same over here in PS4land. I guess the installs are faster, but the 500 gig PS4 HDD is really only 408 after the operating system. With my three launch games installed (not like I have a choice, unless I want to delete them and reinstall every time I play), a couple of PS+ games, and a dozen Battlefield 4 movie clips, I'm down to 300 gig, and I've only had the console ... six weeks? Two months? It's ridiculous.

@Azubedo @santinegrete @Toplinkar @blkgsr I know it's dumb, but I still find a relation because when you purchase a game on Steam, it douwnloads fully. But when Borderlands and Metro Last Light got paid big DLC, my games requiered 1 to 2 GB updates. When I purchased those DLCs, download was not required.

@MrZilch @KidsNDad @GlaciusXL Yeah I had the same happening to my old PS3. I was give way too little space to begin with (40GB). 


The capacity a hard drive is always a bit lower than what is stated. The file system you format the drive with uses the ''lost'' space for a bunch of things, such as security, file management, error correction, performance reasons, compression features and so on. In addition you have the operating system. I think it's understandable for PCs since you have a lot of freedom of doing whatever you want with your hard drive. With consoles, I think this rule shouldn't apply since you're forced to use a certain operating system and file system or the console doesn't work. Sony should have stated the amount of free space, not total capacity.

@MrZilch @KidsNDad @GlaciusXL I do prefer the X1 over PS4, but the easiness of switching the HDD on the PS4, I gotta give it that, I wish X1 had that… I replaced my PS4 500gb with a 1tb HDD and I wish I could do the same with my X1 on day 1 without voiding the warranty…


so little room for installing games… and most of the games I have are on discs…
