Xbox One: Download Your Day One Update Now

Use your PC to grab your mandatory system update ahead of time and be ready for launch day.

Updating an Xbox One using a USB stick allows Xbox users to avoid possible network connection during the day one rush. Since the Xbox requires a mandatory out of the box update, pre-downloading an update helps guarantee you'll be able to play games with your Xbox One as soon as possible.

Update:

Microsoft has pulled the customer support page that offered an option to download Xbox One’s day-one patch on a PC to update your console via USB.

Microsoft Pulls Xbox One Offline Update Page

A Microsoft representative provided the following explanation to IGN:

“The site was not an alternative way to take the Day One update and customers still need to connect to Xbox Live for the update. Because of the complexity of this customer support process we’ve actually removed the page and we will work with customers directly to make sure they have a smooth experience.”

The Update files are 1.2GB each in size and its recommended that you download both because there is not way to know which one you need until you have the box in hand. I am thinking its not simply an update but an entire OS. I imagine in the immediate future the Xbox will ship loaded with an OS.

Apparently you only need the one labeled Launch. The one labeled flash is the factory os

Bit odd that they waited the 11th hour to announce and release this.

But at least its a good thing for people w/o internet at home, if they can get access elsewhere.

Well i guess they could still have been tweaking some things right up to now.

Not a big deal. Spread the word and everyone will be good to go as soon as they get home.

Or they could have announced this rather obvious option before suggesting you could pair a cell phone to a console to DL the patch. That would have solved nothing, just add more complication.

I just got an email that my X1 console plus two free games(free version of Fifa 14 & NBA2K14),Forza 5 LE, Ryse, DR3 + 2 Charge kits and an extra controller have now been shipped and are now on there way to me. I am in New Zealand and it's 4.40pm Thursday, 21st Nov as I type this, so in approximately 15 and a half hours I will be setting my X1 up to my 55" LED Samsung TV :) Exciting times. Enjoy your new consoles peeps :)
