Slow install times on the Xbox One have launch buyers upset

Welcome to the next-generation. The Xbox One requires that you install games to your HDD, but apparently it’s an arduous process for most launch buyers of the new console. Social media has been lighting up with reports of slow installs for a number of different games, leaving users with nothing to do on their new toy but watch TV.

These disc-based games seem to be the biggest problems for Xbox One users, with many claiming the installation process won’t even move from 0%. Hopefully, if its a problem on Microsoft’s end, they’ll get it fixed soon so those who jumped in first will actually be able to play games on the new console. (Xbox One)

The website doesn't provide any sources for it's claims, it just says social media has been flagging up these concerns.

It wouldn't however, surprise me as traditional Xbox 360 owners arent usually used to mandatory installation. I know I despise them.

stevehyphen  +   305d ago | Helpful
From what I gather by reading gaf:

The reason it doesn't move from 0% for a while is because it downloads game updates before installation. After that it sounds like the games are playable at 3-5%.

You can probably get into your games quicker if you turn off your internet, let the game install, and then reconnect it so the patch downloads after the fact.

I'm not an Xbox owner, so I have no idea what I'm talking about. Hopefully it helps!

His point was that you spelled Mouth wrong (moth).

Anyway, I'd like to hear from N4G Xbox One owners, about their experience with this issue.

I haven't had a problem yet( knock on wood). I thought the load times were gonna be faster but I was able to play ryse around 20%, same with bf4 single player. I couldn't play the mp till it fully downloaded. I don't have a ps4 yet so I will compare it to ps3 load times. To me it's faster but not greatly. I just play Killer instinct while the disc is downloading so minor wait time solved. I also haven't had a disc ejecting problem. I was worried especially after last gen but I'm just gaming.

The PS4 has a x6 Blu-Ray player and the Xbox One hasba cheap x1 or x2.
Yeah, that makes a huge difference.
The download of a PS4 game is 3 times faster if not more than the Xbox One is.
Why didn't people read the specs beforehand?
Do people just buy a console because of a brand?
How dumb is that.
Finch  +   304d ago
Mine is working fine no issues. The down load game toke a while, but really not to long since I was able to play as it went. Think it toke maybe 45 minutes for a full DL and 15 minutes before it let me play. My disc game BF4 installed really fast and it pretty much let me play right away.

If disk drives are the same speed it must be the read times of the BluRay. I thought both new consoles were 6x speed. It is news to me that XB1 uses 1x-2x BluRay speed.

But regardless a massive congratulations to all new owners of XBox One. Here's hoping you have many, many great and awesome hours of next gen gaming in the years to come.

I gotta wait until next week for my PS4 in the UK. It's great to see both consoles have launched pretty much unscathed. This may be the first and last time I say this but Well Done Microsoft!

Its a great day for XBox lovers.

I've found that an installed game runs better than on the disc. Yes it means you have to wait but in the long run its worth it.

Plus I think you'll be able to predownload games before they're released and unlock them at the midnight of release. This would be fantastic!

Anyway, this isn't a bad news story - just says that people are desperate to play their xbox one
DARK WITNESS  +   305d ago
hummmm.... trying to install a game and it's not moving past 0% is bad in my book.
mixelon  +   305d ago
Its pretty bad if they have to wait hours to play a game they've bought on disc!

Im glad a solution was found in the comments though. (Unplug the internet and start installation again)
LAWSON72  +   304d ago
It does not sound better these games are quite large what would I do when I run out of HDD space on a Xbone? Replace the HDD? Nope
Delete games seems like the only solution and I personally think that is worse than load times.
And just thinking about a HDD failure sounds bad that means sending the console to MS just for them to tell you to wait for replacement when you could have fixed the problem yourself.

I was able to play RYSE after 3% installation. I didn't have to wait as things claim around here. I think it has to do with how well your connection speed is.
Benchm4rk  +   304d ago
@Agent1

I too was able to start the game at 3% but once I did I was prompted to download a 1024MB update before I could continue. The installation process was halted until the update finished. After the update it was around 20-25% before I could get into the campaign. Had a similar issue with COD Ghosts. So as stated in comments above the reason their installation wont move beyond 0% is because its downloading the update first

Yeah dude no games on 360 made u install them. The same exact versions on ps3 had mandatory installs. It was kind of rediculous how slow the installs were. Ps4 is mad quick with that GDdr
DiRtY  +   304d ago
I just played with my Xbox One for a couple of hours and I thought I had the same problem. :-)

Actually all the games come up with a FREAKING huge Day One Patch (CoD Ghosts, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 for me) and these patches are like 1.3 GB or something.

So if you insert your disc, it starts to install the game and it seems to stand at 0% and you might think it did not even start. What it really does is downloading the huge patch, so the first 0-5% of the install is actually a download and it might take a while, depending on your internet connection. From this point on the install is much faster and you can start the game way before the install is even finished. While you play, the install will happen in the background and you won't even notice.

So no panic needed.

That would be a connection issue with the server that you are getting the COD patch from. It needs to download and install. I imagine with COD being the most popular game on PS4 and Xbox One that the COD servers are being swamped.
kneon  +   304d ago
I agree with KingDadXVI, it can't be the console, it has to be a server side issue if it's taking hours. Or you have really crappy internet.

GutZ31  +   305d ago
It does have play as you download, but it needs a pretty big chunk of the game to start playing. From my friends play thru's with it, you can start to install around the 4-11% mark, depending on the game size.
Problem is that at that point, trying to play the game will just leave you with a loading game screen saying "Downloading Game Data, Please Wait", so when you finally get to play, if you go to far to quickly, you can be seeing the "Downloading Game Data" screen much sooner than you would like.
Ashunderfire86  +   305d ago
On my PS4 when I play a game like NBA 2K14, it only took as less than 5 minutes to play the game while it downloads! My friend and I were treated to the season finale teams, Heats and Spurs until the download was finished.

The Same thing for games like Killzone Shadowfall and Battlefield 4. I could already play them after less than 5 minute downloads! Warframe took 5 to 10 minutes than bam! started playing.

Xbox One is a next year system for me when the problems are iron out. I don't want to wait an hour for a game? Man that's worst than the PS3 Installs. I guess you get what you pay for.

So far, only a couple of failed disk drives. If you're looking for a failure rate, I would blame the oversized heat sink for there not being one (yet).
GusBricker  +   305d ago
Yeah, it takes some time. Especially Ryse.

Assassin's Creed took like 5-10 minutes or so.

Dead Rising 3, like 10-15.

Ryse? Like 20-25 and when you launched the game, it took a little longer before starting a new game.

And yes, Xbox One lets you play as it installs in the background, but it has to install about half way before it allows you launch and play.

wow! That's a pretty long time in comparison to the 360 and even the ps3, granted you play after 30-50% is installed, that isnt as instant as I thought it would for xbo games!

I think this has more to do with Xbox users not used to mandatory installs. The ps4 and Xbone have the same type of drive that can only read at a certain speed so.. there shouldnt be much of a difference when comparing install times.
OrangePowerz  +   305d ago
I have a feeling that the Xbox one doesn't play from the disc at all unlike the PS4 and only from the HDD. The system was designed for the disc to only be there to install and afterwards play without the disc when they still had the DRM and it is likely that this part of the function wasn't changed.

Yes, i can confirm game installs are slighly slow, other then that the XB1 runs perfectly and very cool. Had it on for six hours last night, barely even warm.

Downloading Killer instinct now. I see there is lot of trolls on the web, saying the XB1 is faulty, i don't buy it, i thinking people are posting false reviews because their sad individuals.

Obviously there is genuine issues with some XB1's, but overall, i think the number of genuine people having issues is very low, even lower then what the Playstation users experienced with PS4

That's the only issue you had with his comment?!?

@Legion?

I had no problem with anything else he said. Sounded like a pretty good comment to me. No hate on either side and helpful information to those who may need it.

EDIT: just re read it and spotted the false review thing.... That's an issue lolz is anyone really that sad to take time out of their day to make up lies to defend a corporate company? If so then just WOW.

I can't say what system has more or less issues but I can say it's a stealth just like the ps4. Hardly any warmth after a night of healthy use. New systems will have issues, it's to be expected, but damn am I lucky. I personally have never gotten a dud system. Original ps2, 360, ps3 and a host of other launch systems still alive and well at my house. I feel for the PS4 and X1 users that are having issues but my flawless steak continues.
