Desperate troll is desperate



Its so strange how trolls will casually make a topic asking things as if they are unbiased. Its like someone dressed as a bank robber is trying to make a withdrawl from their account.

Oh dear..

Theres always one.


It's just chrish. I ignored him long ago. always angry and defensive unless it's worship news for MS. Spencer himself knows it's a problem.


He can't deal with actual facts so it's just easier for him to call everyone trolls.

The install times are too long for my tastes; not unbearable, but certainly too long.

Spencer seems like a good Exec and a games guy but there isn't an easy fix for this. The only thing I'd see working is reducing the amount of data that needs to be loaded before you can start playing, but the PS4 could do this as well and if it were easy to do I think they would have already done it.

PS4 has a 6X BD drive which gives it the roughly 45-60 second start times. MS hasn't released the X1 BD speeds but speculation from tech sites has it at a 2X BD drive - same as the PS3 iirc. It's just a slow drive, MS' focus was on digital and this choice of a slow optical drive reflects that. They were talking of releasing a diskless X1 even after their disastrous E3 last year and there are fresh rumors of a disk-free X1 making an appearance as early as this holiday season.

I think this is something we are going to just have to get used to.

Cool. Glad to hear that MS is acknowledging areas of improvement. This is good news for everybody.


Exactly... I don't know why people are getting upset... It's good news

Well if he's admitting it's a problem they probably already have a fix planned. Otherwise they'd either downplay it or refuse to acknowledge.

I'm curious how do developers at MS fix such issues? A system/firmware update can improve install times somehow? such things can be "patched" like problems in a game?


They could always do a firmware update that changes the prioritization of installation files.

How many sys software/firmware updates has X1 gotten so far? What's the current version #.

PS4 recently got 1.60. don't know how MS labels theirs.

Battlefield 4 on PS4 took about 2 hours to download a 6GB file before I could even play a partial game.

Bummer. I popped it in my PS4 and was playing in no time at all.

That was probably the fix for crappy EA putting out a game before it was ready to be released and causing a myriad of issues for everyone...

You do realize that you`ll always be called a troll when your a troll right ? You`ve been uber-trolling here for ages so , essentially , any time anyone reads your posts as Ryan-06 or TheGam3925 they are never going to give any weight EVER to anything you say. You`ve burned your bridge , and then burned the bridge to that bridge. Trolling is cowardly. So you`ve made your beds and cemented your identities as online cowards. Bummer...
