Why does it take forever to install games on X1? I've been waiting for an hour

It's because it's downloading the update for the game at the same time. Slow internet doesn't help either.


but.. ps4 does the same and the games install in less than 2 minutes..

Wow dude, wtf. I live in a city, and pay like $150 a month for average cable and internet that sometimes spikes to 20mb/s download. If Time Warner Cable didn't have such a monopoly :/

TC the first thing you need to do is increase your level of dedication to Microsoft, this is important. For some reason the most loyal of fanboys are able to install their games in a matter of minutes.

I will say that NBA2k14 was worth the wait.

TC I was just like you. Got xb1 5 days ago, wait 20 minutes for initial console set ups and updates. Have to wait while downloading digital titanfall. Figure hey I got Nba on disk hell yeah, nope. Took like an hour to install, im not a fan of this install nonsense, but I guess thats the future of gaming.

Oh, this topic again.

I think if you're going to be a gamer you should start to learn about the file sizes and hardware instead of complaining about something you don't understand.

So do tell professor, which games on consoles have had 13 gig patches?

None ever, except for Dead Rising 3, which you need to install to play online. It has nothing to do with "not understanding" and everything to do with the boneheaded installation process.

Because it's downloading from the cloud, disconnect from the internet and the install will take 20min or less.
