It takes a few hours for the game to get going, and share the frustration of the wait.
A few hours? Seriously? 15GB patch? Make a sandwich....or 100. And to think last gen MGS4 had so much crap for an 8 minute install.
It took three and half hours to download so I could play online, even the I have still not to play online as match making is broken. Game is really buggy has some frame rate issue the disc is not loading every time especially if I have been running tv. At the moment feel I have wsted my money! This for me has been as bad as bf4 and driveclub launch.
Took me 2hrs. A bit anticlimactic for a midnight release. I went to bed and when I got up servers are down. Ive only been able to get into 4 games total since release.
To be fair, you can start playing Halo CE pretty quickly and go from there. As part of the update, the game is patched and that's why you can't play online till it's done. But if you're waiting you can start playing single player pretty much straight away.
It took me about 3.5-4 hours to install the game and 15gb update :\ no idea why it took that long to install off the disc or why it took that long in general. It happened with Advanced Warfare too from the disc it took about 2 hours to install and from the download (my brother has the disc I have the download) it took about 6 hours. This is exactly why I do not want to have to delete games/reinstall them when I run out of space.. I have the Advanced Warfare 1TB console so hope it last for a while, after that gonna grab a 2TB external drive.
I have the 1TB AW edition too, along with a 3TB. I wont need to delete anything. Ever. I can still add a second even bigger HDD when I max out the 1tb internal and the 3TB attached drive. But i dont think that will be needed, anytime soon.
i could have installed the game 40 times in the amount of time it took to find a match... Oh wait, I still haven't gotten one.
I would kill to have had it done in 4 hours. Mine took a little less than 2 days to install the patch. I mostly blame my ISP for that though. Pro Tip: Avoid Frontier like the plague for your ISP.
It's probably because sometimes when you're connected to the internet, even if you have the disc, Xbox tries to download it from the internet. All you have to do is turn off your wifi or take out your ethernet cable and then install.
It was weird I got the unity bundle and that took around 8 hrs to download. Slow as hell. Was thinking it would be fast because how great I hear xbox live was. Ps4 would finish that 3/4 and even maybe less the time. But I got Halo and installed it and downloaded the 15gb patch about 30-40min. That's pretty fast. Guess it was due to xbox live having issues.
I assumed that being the case I figured maybe everyone was congesting the servers and what not but its not always the case. For example I got the Advanced Warfare bundle the day before Halo came out and installed Advanced Warfare and it took so long..like 6 or so hours. I doubt that it was a congestion issue since the game was out for a good week before I installed it. I have 85 down and 45 upload so I dunno what it could be.
I made a few beats and ordered a pizza.
Got a six pack of mountain dew and a pizza and done:)
If u guys think the wait time is bad for the install, wait til u get a load of the matchmaking...ridiculous
I smoked a few doobers with my buds and reminisced about Halo in the old days. Then we went coop and had our minds blown by all the improvements.
Maybe it was the doobers that blew your mind.
You simply press the Back button on the X1 controller and you can see the improvements plain as day. I've never been so faded that I can't work the controller...
i suggest starting campaign in halo 1 or 4,those are ready to start in nearly 5 mins. I played a few levels then hoped into halo 4 matches,i had no idea how long the install took i just busy with game in general.
Does it take long to install games on xbone? AW installed in like 15 min on my ps4. If that
Depends if there is an update or not. My AW installed in about 15 to 20 mins but I turned my net off so it would install faster.
I've heard xone is pretty much the new PS3 when it comes to dl and game installs.
This games has improved a shit lot but downloaded in 40+ I guess I should've bought PS4 man I'm stupid$-$-$-$-:(
Fuck halo 5 isn't in ps4 gayyyyyyyyyy:(
