so for the day one patch

Not patching via connection to internet would leave the xbox vulnerable to hacking. Someone could probably easily make a disc that acts as an update disc which exploits vulnerabilities in the preliminary OS installed on it.

of course its possible.. They would easily add the patch to the system but even if they didn't want to do that, they could put the patch on a dvd very simply, a blank dvd would cost them next to nothing. pennies even

They just won't do it, so people (like 3 of my friends) who have no home internet at all, can't buy an Xbone even if they wanted one.

Epic job Microsoft. *golfclap*


So your three friends can't use your internet? A friends internet? An internet cafe? A library? A relatives internet?


The point is that this problem shouldn't exist in the first place. We should be good to go after plugging everything in. But no... Microsoft wants to make sure that everybody has an internet connection they could exploit.

Most people that get the Xbox, or PS4 will have internet....

A simple solution is to wait until either a disc is shipped with the update, or waiting to buy a system until Microsoft starts shipping them with a already updated OS.

It wouldn't be hard to put the patch on a disc but it would cost money that microsoft probably doesn't want to spend and won't spend.
No internet=Xbox One a brick.

IIRC, only half of all 360s connected to the internet ever. Half of something isn't most of something. It's half.
Could be wrong on the numbers though.

It would be hard if they finish the update after they shipped the consoles.
Microsoft have shipped OS Service Packs on discs in the past, so I don't think they wont do it now because they are "cheap".

No. They won't do it because they would get hacked to hell and back if they allowed firmware updates via USB or burnt disc. Thats why 360 amd PS3 were so easy to hack.

Personally I want my consoles to be as hack proof as possible. Places like gamestop should allow patching in store and MS should support it.

Fail on your part for not knowing when they went into production

No, just no...
Do you know how people hack their 360's?
They reflash the firmware in the DVD reader.
As in removing it from the console, hooking it up to a SATA cable to their PC and run a program that replace it with another firmware.
It got nothing to do with Microsoft allowing the system to install software updates from USB/burned discs.
If it was possible to hack the system with the updates, then we would already have a way to install custom firmware on every console and not only on consoles that allowed you to jtag crack them,
