They also need to put the activity feed on the main page. The XBI is by far the worst system ever for these installs. Even worse than the PS3.

30 minutes? Jose was being generous.

Seriously. This is one of the major issues my bro has against the system.

Doesn't say they will fix it. Where are you getting that info from?

Nowhere. Though, i'd understand if this were a reach out.

He addressed it. Therefore........it is getting fixed. I learned how to stretch the truth in SW. Blame the forum.

@timbers_WSU: true that, playing "fair" will get you nowhere.

Try disconnecting from the internet before you instal I hear it's like 9 times faster for some reason.

I fixed the title.
I lost my Killer Instinct install for some reason and it took 2 hours to get to 58%. Ryse freezed twice at 99% and took over an hour to do that last 1%.

The Hell? Yeah Microsoft needs to fix this problem. It is bad. I am not even sure they can.

Probably because they download any updates for the game during the install. Took me absolutely ages to get BF4 up and running.

Would have figured gamers know, by now, the install times are due to the game actually downloading from Live, instead of from the disc.

The discs only there to verify the game was purchased.

Drm lives.

While installs can be frustrating when one just wants to play their new game ; it's still only a one time event so it's not really such a big deal. Great if they can fix it, but not a deal breaker if they can't

Does the entire disk have to install first before you can start playing?

It varies from game to game. between 30-60% of the game has to be installed.

#16 Posted by UnbiasedGamerGS (32 posts) -

Watch some TV and order a Pizza on Xbox Live while you wait for the install ;)

#17 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

WOW 30 minutes....really? That's nuts.

Yeah, its a process. I think Dead Rising 3 took me 30-40 minutes before I could play.

I hope they find a way (I'm sure they will) to speed up install times. Something I really hated last gen ... Number of times I'd boot up a game for my nephew only for there to be numerous updates that had to be installed before he could even play. Talk about ruining a kids excitement.

Is this that superior next gen innovation I hear so much about?

#22 Edited by BattlefieldFan3 (341 posts) -

The Xbone is a last-gen console.

It is NOT trolling to make statements that are logical and fact-based. xbone has similar power to 360. Still suffers from same problems as last-gen consoles.

#23 Posted by silversix_ (14232 posts) -

40 minutes to install games? WOW. WOW. WOW. Wasn't the system supposed to be better at everything but graphics when compared to ps4? Because its not better at anything else but being almost twice as big and heavier than a ps4.

Yup, and lemtrash like RR360DD sticks with the inferior Xbone despite the clearly superior PS4.

#25 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (13792 posts) -

Well, atleast they're admitting there's a problem.

#26 Posted by KingsofQueens (2207 posts) -

That's $500 for ya.

#27 Edited by hrt_rulz01 (5955 posts) -

This definitely needs to improve. Takes way to long.

#28 Edited by Phazevariance (10942 posts) -

It will improve. Honestly though I would have thought that implementing the whole "play before install completes" feature would have been done right from the start.

I no doubt believe the install times but I heard different things about it that I can't know for certain what's the cause. Some people say the install pauses like at 1% or something then sits there forever, others say the game downloads entirely from an online download if it's online and says to unplug it to install and it installs fast after that, another guy says it's downloading the updates which can take forever if the update is large, and doesn't prioritize installation if a download is available (which also makes sense of the disconnect from online fix).

To me, this sounds like it can be fixed with an OS fix, allow games to install with priority over updates, allow games to launch without updates while updates download in background, and prompt user when update is ready and offer a game restart option.

As far as Dead Rising 3 only taking 30 minutes that seems rather fast as I heard the update was quite a large one, like 5 GB.

#32 Posted by killerfist (19813 posts) -

I never thought it would be possible that it would be worse than PS3 installations..

ouch

cod took at least 40 minutes to install for me

40 minutes? Non-issue.

Just make two sandwiches then.

#36 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (4566 posts) -

Remember the good old days when you could just put in a disc and play it without worrying about installing and patching? You know, what made console gaming attractive?

Thanks console manufacturers for totally missing the point.

After a generation of lems going on about the PS3 having to install games and the Xbox not there is a certain irony in this.

You mean you actually got BF4 to run?

A friend of mine and I both had game nights to show off our consoles... he with the X1 and me with the ps4... Murphy's law dictates that this would be a mess and it was.. between his X1 refusing to boot ryse and claiming he needed to by a retail copy of the game (which was sitting in the disk tray) and ungodly long install times, to my ps4 kicking us out of games (ive litererally not had that happen once) and not playing streaming videos of game pages... I've come to the decision that both consoles are filled with suck when it counts...

Maybe if the PS4 didn't have to install games ... but it does.

What did you expect? The Xbone is weak.

#45 Edited by Puckhog04 (22606 posts) -

I would honestly probably just pop in a game on one of my other Consoles and let it install. Wouldn't be an issue for me.

#46 Posted by timbers_WSU (5753 posts) -

No. Your trolling is weak
The PS4 hasn't been a picnic either. Battlefield and NBA2K are broken on PS4. PS4 analog sticks falling apart, PS4's freezing and having to reboot their systems. Not to mention the PS4's Blu-ray plyer is complete ass.

Both systems need work. And the PS4 needs games.

Lol, so you're disregarding facts now?

PS4 is stronger, deal with it.

And lol at your pathetic "bu..PS4 also has problemz". Yes it does, but not as many as the Xbone.

You can't fix weak hardware.

#49 Posted by TheEroica (13371 posts) -

and frustrating... Im lucky enough to have multiple gaming distractions, so for now I'll let sony and MS work through the bugs while I game elsewhere. My Ps4 will be heavily used again for possibly tomb raider and definitely Infamous.

Hahahaha seriously, how the hell did they manage that.

That goes beyond incompetence it's like someone was trying to sabotage the Xbone beyond just terrible naming conventions.
