GearNuke: "Hopefully you are not the victim of this pre-load glitch on Xbox One."
physical version 4ever! among other things there just something about opening a new game case youve been waiting forever, for the first time. its like a treasure box and digital is like treasure delivered into your pocket. convenient but far less exciting
But if that 'treasure box' costs $80 (in my part of the world) and the Digital versions costs $60-$70,then what would that person do?
well the disc version can be resold and make that difference back easily when you are done with the game, COD games hold their resell value for a long time, try doing that with digital.
What part of the world do you live that digital is cheaper then physical? I have never been able to purchase a digital copy for a lower price than physical close to release.
@ annoyed the evil within was just on ps+ for cheaper than retail version.
All Digital since day 1, never had any issues and never looked back= waaaaaay to convenient to go back to physical, ewww, next you'll tell me to buy my music on an 8 track, lol. PRELOADING FTW.
Nearly every game is more expensive digitally in Australia and they stay at that price for a lot longer. JBHiFi has pretty decent prices on physical copies and they drop fairly quickly too. I'm never going all digital.
In my part of the world, digital versions are more expensive. Where do you live?
with me if its a yearly sports game etc i would go digital if it was cheaper. but digital has gone from claiming it would cost less and we wuld save,to charging more as its suposedly more convienient. by law digital should be cheaper by at least 20% because of the savings.
Alot of people I know(living in Europe) are Creating U.S. accounts for the sole purpose of getting games cheaper 60$ us, beats the physical price in ANY EU contry.
Buy online. I was buying digital for awhile at 70 euros a game because my work schedule is always different and picking up games can be hard as Sunday could be my day off and just buying and downloading was so easy. Thats until I bought 4 games this gen at 70 euros digital that were crap so thats 280 euros I'll never get back. I then noticed that games are 75 euros in shops here in Ireland and I said F that. Went online and so far I bought Shadow of Morder for 58 euros including delivery, The Evil Within for 60.53 including delivery and I just bought COD AW on Amazon for a total of 58 euro including delivery. Walking past gamestop on Saturday they had a sign outside with how much they pay for trade ins and Gamestop are giving 40 EUROS for SOM and TEW.
In my part of the world, a digital game costs $100, but I can find physical for around $70. Add that to the ability to resell for $60 easily and I have ZERO reason to buy digitally.
in canada al digital games are 8-10 dollars dollars cheaper cos psn charges no tax :) im all digital i have yet to even insert a disc into my ps4
Digital is the way to go sir.. It's the future.
A future that was widely accepted by consumers when Microsoft announced the Xbox One. -sarcasm- Really its consumers who have to accept it first before it becomes standard in the console gaming industry. Firms can't force consumers to accept it.
Thanks, but no thanks. :) You're gonna have to pry physical media from my cold, dead hands. To me, physical easily provides the most sense of "ownership," freedom to sell, trade, loan to a friend, etc., and nostalgia. Putting a new PS4 game on the shelf next to the other PS3, PS2, and PS1 games is just something digital will never be able to replicate. I'm a collector and want the security of knowing I can play any of my games 10+ years out into the future, if I so desire. Once again, something that's easily achievable with physical, not with digital.
for you maybe but not for me. i bought sunset overdrive and beat the crap out of it then sold it on craigslist for 50 bucks. so I pretty much paid 14.00 to play the game.
^What are you talking about? It was in the description plain as day. Playstation users can access their cross buy version AFTER the game releases on TUESDAY.
There is nothing exciting about opening a game and then waiting to have it install on your console( it's not like they have expansive manuals anymore to read), preloading is the way to go now.
Some people have ISP caps and/or heavy unavoidable ISP throttling. Also, can you guarantee that you'll be able to play any of your digital games in 10+ years?
not only that but that new game smell (*o*)
If that happened to me on launch day I would rage against the machine :D
I just wouldnt buy any every year annual franchise digitaly. And that shit would make it suck. Gawd i couldnt imagine
I can testify on that. I'd rage like bulls on parade.
Lol nice reference
How does stuff like this ever get over looked?! I'd be severely annoyed if this happened to me >:( Then again I'm one of those physical > digital :) But still, I feel sorry for anyone who get gets this glitch.
Oh man that sucks. I would probably cry if that happened to me. Kind of makes me to worry about the MCC digital version.
My downloaded just fine
So did mine then I'm back to 0%. I'm not in the preview program either. Started to download it again I turned my xb1 off when it got to 2% just turned it back on and it's at 1%. Fucking stupid if you ask me!
I spoke to soon last night 11pm central time my game wen to update/stuck. Reinstalled and played the first campaign level and let it finish overnight. I am in the preview program.
Lol. Sux. After I reloaded no problems. I see cod still refuses dedicated servers.
Been fine playing and no problems with Online play for me. I have had no disconnects. The only issue I have is sound cutting out in single player. Probably due to being in the preview program. They are quick to get it sorted out.
Its only happening to people who installed the latest update from the preview program.. Im currently on 2311,and dont have that issue
I didn't have an issue with it, i preloaded when it was first available and all is well on my end still
Mine downloaded without a problem. I'm on the Xbox Preview too (latest update). Must be very rare cases or something. I have played the game since 12.01AM (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
£40 physical or £40 digital? best go with physical at same price
£40 for digital?? Where?? On the PS Store, it's £49.99. I've ordered mine from tesco for £35. Won't deliver on launch, but worth the discount.
It's £54.99 on the PS4's store for me, it's cheaper on the PS3 and you get a last and a current gen version.
I had zero problems downloadIng to my WII U ..game plays great & looks even better😜
Humor isn't your strong point
And your user name is not yours lol,nice try little guy
*In Gordon Ramsay's voice* Get out!
Come on guys it was just a joke bubble for funny ;)
Glad I predownloaded it before this glitch
I'm strongly considering buying this. I have not bought a cod since modern warfare 2. When I played a friends Black ops and saw a death replay of me getting killed by a skipping tomahawk I was confused. The 5th time I was like no thanks. It's kinda like Halo. I'm starting to wonder have things gotten good again and am I missing out.
I havent played a cod online more than an hour since mw1 and crazy unfair mw2. My first time standing in line for one. This has me interested . After this one,,,i retire.
Tell me how it is. Send me a message on your system of choice. I'm Deathdeliverer on everything.
To tell u right right now fps are what im best at . Top 10 -top 1000 on the original xbox live and 1 game on 360 . Grew tired or bf4,,this seems to be the only alternative for a while. But ill try to get to ya. Ps4.._my handle is what you see here.
im in the preview program an my pre load went tjust fine..it took awhile to download the 46 gigs but other than that no problems
I had 46% or more downloaded on friday and just disappeared the next day, and reset. I kept my x box 1 on all night for it download on Sunday its ok now fully downloaded. Never happened before seems to be issue with this game.
I have never had problems on X1...... so far with preloading but it sucks for those that did, I have only preloaded 1 games so far Sunset Overdrive and Dragon Age Inquisition! That said for Annualized Games like COD, I would think most people would get them physically and trade in when the new ones comes out?
The inevitable "bumps in the road" for digital pre-orders... Actually surprised that things have been going so smooth so far. I digitally pre-ordered and downloaded Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, Just Dance 2015, Alein Isolation, Destiny, Disney Fantasia, Sleeping Dogs, and The Evil Within all without a single issue. Also have Assassin's Creed, CoD AW, Halo MCC, Dragon's Age, and Lego Batman 3 digitally pre-ordered and downloaded... My 4 TB External drive is already 30% full!
I'm thinking I need to go for an external HDD - which did you go for?
I went with the 3TB WD Pocket Drive (USB powered, rather than external)... Just bought two more 4TB WD Pocket drives today... (Planning ahead) They take two USB ports but, the lack of need for wall power outweighs the port usage.
@NeoGamer232 Thanks! I'll check them out!
omg not good keep those discs going like i am.
Xbots were teasing Sony fans over Evolve Alpha. I would rather have my evolve alpha problem than have this COD AW problem. At 12 I will be playing with my friend in 1080p
This is awkward, I did both...
This is why digital is NOT the future. Only idiots would want that kind of future.
Guess what? Digital IS the future. Haven't you ever seen any sci-fi movie? It's coming and you can't do anything about it.
You mean when one of the crew extracts a disc from the Event Horizon? Digital my ass.
So I bought my call of duty today on the store and it's downloading now at 23% am I one of the people who's going to have to be concerned about when it installs that it's going to make me re install it?
Mine reset AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRR RRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH
Mines is stuck at 100% for the last 30 mins. It just says installing update. Its starting to piss me off. Ive reboot my X1 still no go.
whats funny is that these ps fans trashing xbox ,but the same problem is happening on ps4,just check twitter
If you have physical disc version: 1. Totally un-install any updates or game progress. 2. Disconnect from internet. 3. Disconnect from power source. 4. Re-connect power source. 5. Install game as normal. 6. Then re-connect to internet. 7. Then install update. Worked for me. Pain in the rear but it worked and is playable. Don't know what to say for digital version.
Ok so here is the solution! I am in the XBox Preview Program...had a hell of a time getting my Day Zero Physical COD installed...first got Free Space notifications (had plenty of free space) then got Installing/Qued Installing/Qued back and forth then got Installing 1% 2% slow as hell and would restart randomly and frustrating as hell so what to do? 1. Uninstall the game (Manage the game and just Uninstall it) 2. Hard reset the XBox One 3. Turn on the XBox One and when prompted "This game requires an update to play online 249MB" DO NOT INSTALL THE UPDATE Instead select Install Later 4. Install the game from Disk 5. Now Install the Update to play online There you go!
If that happen to me I'll be so pissed, it took me 3 hours to download just 13GB to day, this would probably take a day.
discs for life, digital will never kill physical copies
