SegmentNext - Some Halo 5 Guardians fans who preordered the game are reporting that the files are being downloaded too slow.
Oh boy man that sucks. That it why I preordered on an physical copy folks.
Yeah i pre ordered digitally... no issues here.
Same with me, I preorder and preloaded digitally and my game unlocked and ran just fine at 12:01 am last night. Not sure who was running into issues, but if anyone started downloading yesterday after 6 PM I could understand there may be a lot of stress on the servers providing the content.
I bought the physical copy and it took forever to install particularly the last 10% of the game. The disc didn't seem to be spinning during the last 10% of the install. Installs from disk seem to take a long time on Xbox One but this one was excessively long. I could have downloaded the game much faster.
i digitally preordered and everything worked fine no issues whatsoever. i had no matchmaking issue either!
Not heard a single peep about matchmaking/multiplayer hosting problems. Commendable for such a big launch. We should expect a good online experience while we pay for the service, but with the way the MCC released there was reasonable cause for concern :)
I wish things were that smooth for me. I bought the $250 version of the game. No one said it doesn't come with the disk. So I called MS and they said they would ship me a disk. But they have no idea when it will arrive. So I'm stuck, buying their most expensive version of the game, but unable to play it (since they make you give them the download code so you can't redeem it). MS screwed this up badly.
Should of used the code then just bought a physical copy in a year for $10. Also everyone said it did not come with a disc, maybe when you spend $250 pay just a little bit of attention. MS was more than open about it being digital
Seriously Lawson? You are siding with Microsoft on this? Talk about blind fanboy-ism. I have pretty much every collector's edition of every game I've ever bought (if they have one), and I've never once not had a physical game disk. In the Amazon description (which I read, but the way), it never said anything about no disk included.
I have to side with Microsoft on this one too. It was plainly stated that it came with a digital code bro. There were tons of articles regarding this...
@masterofwiiu3ds I agree ms should have a disc in the most expensive version. However i cant side with an uneducated buyer (no offense). Im sure next time you'll do a little research before putting that much cash down
Why did you spend so much without knowing what you were buying? Sorry you feel bad about the purchase but it was well known that there wasn't a disc with that edition.
If I were the only one out there who didn't know - sure. I'd accept the blame. But when I got my game and couldn't find a disk, then realized there was just a code, I googled it. A LOT of people were upset too (because they didn't know). That tells me that Microsoft screwed up. Also, I haven't seen anything on this aside from people being upset - so it being "widely known" is false. It may be known by you, but that doesn't mean it's widely known.
OMG THIS SITE ALWAYS. ON SOMETHING. WITH XBOX game is running flawless
Go to link and see it yourself. There are several people complaining about these issues.
Mine downloaded slo fact of the matter is it finished and game is running flawlessly but let's nitpick
Yeah, you don't have any issues means no one does.
I'm gonna be honest...xbox one download times are ABYSMAL! The Uncharted Collection is about 44gb total and I downloaded it from PSN in like 4 hours or less (don't remember exactly, could have been even more like 3 or less). I literally ate some dinner and played another game for an hour and it was done. Halo 5 is about 54gb total download. I stared it at about 445pm eastern time yesterday...it is now 1135am the next day...65%. To be fair, the download stopped over night at some point. But what I know for sure is from 445pm until about 1am it moved to about 30%. Last game I downloaded was when I reinstalled Destiny in August. That was another 24 hour ordeal. I always loved xbox live as a service and I remember the 360 was lighting fast with updates and downloads (relatively speaking). How can it be that xbox one is so...damn...slow?
What are your dl speeds?
Well I have Optimum in NY area. I know the downloads are 50mbps. I rarely see it hit that when testing but usually can see at least 30. Also, my uploads usually land somewhere near 20. I have been meaning to call customer service because I get the sense that for the last few months I've been slower than normal. But that's something I noticed months ago. Meanwhile, I was able to download the UC Collection in a few hours no problem. So I have to suspect this is an issue on their end (MS), not mine.
If you take in the whole of the comment... How would DL speed instantly be the issue when they point to the fact they don't have the same issue on PS4/Xbox 360?
It's no mistake. The PS4 has a secondary processor dedicated to networking, which is why more often then not PS4 stuff downloads much faster than XBO. A lot of PS4 games can install and update at the same time in the background, and for some reason many XBO games have to download the complete update first before it can begin installing, which makes things on the PS4 significantly faster than their XBO counterpart.
I am not sure that makes a difference in UncleJerry's case. I believe he just leaves the consoles alone when they were downloading.
@testerg35 It's exactly one of the reasons why it's taking so long. There's even a notice for people downloading Halo to takes specific steps to improve download speeds. Halo slow install & download fixes: 1. If you’re installing the game from a disc, disconnect from the internet before you begin. If you don’t, it will try to install the game and download the 9 GB patch at the same time, which will slow it down a lot. XBO simply struggles with doing updates and installs at the same time, this takes 1 to a few minutes on PS4, but on XBO it can reach double digit minutes to simply download the update if you're trying to install as well, and it slows down the install, making the overall download take much longer. 2. Many people who bought the digital version of the game are reporting slow download speeds. A bit of fiddling with network settings might help. Go to Network Settings: Change Primary DNS to 18.104.22.168 Change Secondary DNS to 22.214.171.124 Enter Advanced Settings and click Alternate MAC. Press Clear It's almost always recommended to keep your Xbox on a dedicated IP address, because it has a nasty habit of jumping to a strict settings or simply end up with a much slower connection than you should. A hard reset can help with this sometimes, but changing your network settings and opening your ports on your router, can make your speed and status jump significantly.
I was able to play the single player campaign at 9PM PST last night without any issues. I preloaded my copy a few days before hand.
Wait what?? I smell rumor and me too trolls. I downloaded it days before on the overnight and it was done when I got up. Nice try trolls. Do we have any Real links to back it up??
Dude say what you will. If you look at my comments, I generally favor xbox as it is my "main" platform. But I have always been disappointed with the install/download times on the xbox one and it seems to be getting worse. Again, the only proper comparison I have is that on my PS4 I get games in several hours average. All my consoles are wired and I have a quality router. Overall, I spend lots of time/money making sure I have quality equipment. Home Theater and video games are my hobby. So I am upset when despite my best efforts, I have to download a game for a whole day. I know...first world problems, but I pay well over $200/mo. for internet/cable and seem to have no issues steaming HD movies (from any source) or downloading games from PSN. If anyone is trolling anybody it is Xbox trolling ME!!
The only issue I had was I had to redownload the day 1 update. Other than that, my digital copy is working just fine. Hope other people get their fix asap :)
There was an issue with people who preordered real early microsoft sent out the wrong files. It does suck because unless you go on gaming sites you would never know because they did warn about the bad files. But if you had the correct download it worked flawless at 12:01 for me on both xboxes
I have had zero issues since launch, played for 5 hrs without a single hiccup. It is kind of hard to believe
Relatively quiet on the connectivity issues at launch end. That is a good thing
I havent had a single issue with it.
My buddy pre ordered at 9 EST and had it DLed in no time. Wasn't a problem with servers or anything.
I had no issues. Isn't this why preloading exists? perhaps they should have downloaded it sooner. I downloaded mine on Sunday and it was ready to go Monday night.
