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.


It has everything to do with not understanding. There is plenty of info out there.

49GB installs (COD) take a long time
13GB downloads take a long time (on most connections)

It works the same on the best gaming pc out there.

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

Then why doesn't the PS4 have this problem?

Same game sizes, yet you can play within minutes.

Explain away.

Now you're confusing initial installs with overall installs.

The PS4 has a better focus on initially installing a playable portion of the game. Takes just as long to do a full install. I believe Microsoft has said they are developing a plan to prioritize initial installs on upcoming releases.

You can install a playable portion of most XBOX One games in less than 10 minutes btw.

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.


Thanks for the smile.

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..


This is totally a lie
