Why does it take so long to install games on the Xb1 ?

#1BruceLee1974Posted 11/27/2013 5:41:37 PM
I was just reading this article at a site called KOTAKU, and this is a brief thing to what they said:

We tested six multiplatform games on both consoles and every time, the PS4 was under a minute while the Xbox One install was several minutes long and required downloading an update before beginning the installation. When you include downloading those updates for each Xbox One game that happen in the background on PS4, the install times can get as high as fifteen minutes before you can even launch the game.

For anyone that wants to watch the video of it and read it themselves, just go here:

How Long Until You Can First Play A Game On PS4 And Xbox OneP

[Since this has been asked in the comments a lot: We recorded these times with the consoles hooked up normally. Even though having the PS4 plugged into the Xbox shouldn't affect anything, we only did that for the video]P

Assassin's Creed IV:
Xbox One (offline, no update): 5 minutes 50 seconds
Xbox One (with update, fastest connection): 7 minutes 2 seconds
Xbox One (with update, 10Mbps connection): 10 minutes 32 seconds
PS4: 42 secondsP

The rest of these were tested on our office Wi-Fi which is around 9-11Mbps. It may have been faster on a wired connection, but you can compare your own connection speed here. These are our results:P

Need For Speed Rivals:
XBO: 09:25 (including update)
PS4: 00:32P

Just Dance 2014:
XBO: 08:48 (including update)
PS4: 00:45P

NBA Live 14:
XBO: 16:26 (including update)
PS4: 00:35P

FIFA 14:
XBO: 16:06 (including update)
PS4: 00:34P

Madden 25:
XBO: 9:38 (including update)
PS4: 00:38P


These are some of the games they tested with actual times.

Xbone is way too slow compared to the lightning fast PS4.

Ur really convinced the ps4 caches all games dont ya and thus playing the game will result in longer load times?

I didn't see any on the front page and why is it trolling ? Is it called trolling when you ask a question. I just want to know the reason.

I don't understand why people take offense so easily when someone is asking a question as that's what message boards are for.
