From the moment you take it out of the box, until you configure all settings and accounts and calibrate the kineck and everything, how long does it take to set your Xbone up?

Also, will the average parent be able to set it up correctly in the first go?

its easy. hook it up, configure connect, DL your xbox live tag, and done.

The longest part was the live tag forr me, cause i forgot the password.

but ya, clueless parents will have no problem.

its harder to make a sandwich if thats any comparison.

It might depend on your skills. I would think that a soccer mom would have much more experience making a sandwich than setting up a computer or a video game console.

Anyway, nobody has replied how long it takes to set everything up.

Took me about a half hour from the time I had everything out of the box until I was connected on the dash with my account.

If you can hook up any A/V equipment then you can set up X1. I had everything connected and the update installed within 10 minutes of opening the box.

you must have a very fast internet connection then, most videos on youtube show it at around 40 minutes.

You turn it on and it is self explanatory, pretty much does it itself. Not sure how that would be hard at all.

I buy DLC. If that makes me a "sheep" then oh well. Don't like it? Oh well, get over it.

I was watching a video on youtube where it took 30 minutes to install and play a game, can anyone confirm or deny this?

Not super fast, about 25Mb/s download.
