Slow install times on the Xbox One have launch buyers upset

by Al McCarthy on November 22, 2013


xbox-one-release-date-november

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.

Making matters worse, the Xbox One dashboard doesn’t really have a good way to tell the users just what kind of progress they are making in the download and installation process, aside from a small square that says how far along the entire process is. The launch games that we’ve tried have all had massive day-one patches to go alongside the installation, so we’ll have to wait and see if this is just network congestion, or a rude-awakening on what we’re to expect when playing a game for the first time on Xbox One.

Say Something
  • Lanks

    It is just ridiculous. Call of Duty Ghosts is sitting at 4% installed after a half hour. I’m pretty disappointed so far…

    • Dave Hunter

      I have tries everything from assassins creed 4, dead rising 3, battlefield 4 and ryse… Cannot play a single one. Inhad dead rising 3 installed and then i got the Needs an update request… And then it just said failed and to keep retrying!!?? So fucking angry!

      • Cat

        Turning off the internet and then the box – using the controller, then turning the internet back on and the box worked for us. Ryse went from 4% (after 2 hours) to Ready. Then got to the first in game loading screen – been stuck for about 15 minutes. Considering turning it off again…*sigh

        • The Wolf 47

          Xbox Decided to go with a slow bare bone Blu-Ray Disc Player.
          PS4 went with a higher end x6 disc reader, around 5 times faster than the Xbox One when installing.

          • creampie

            yeah, i had BF4, KZ shadowfall, Ghosts and AC4 downloaded in about an hour on the ps4. The best part was, after about 5 mins i was able to start playing AC4 the entire time everything was downloading. PS4 is super fast.

          • Datignantmofo

            SO TRUE SO TRUE

          • Trevor Gowe

            Sure dude.

            They’re both 6x. Bored of your PS4 already eh? So you’ve decided to troll the internet?

            P.s. You can start playing Xbox One games when they’re at about 9% installed.

          • GK15

            It takes 2-3 minutes to start playing some games.

          • xdgrpa

            Theif is on 18 precent and I still can’t play it what do I do

          • mop bucket

            The installation is from the internet, read speed is arbitrary.

        • tigerlily

          This works like rebooting internet. Thanks been waiting for 4 hr on download. Wait it has stopped loading again on game screen. trying to reboot again.

    • X1ultimateGamer

      Your shit internet connection is to blame

      • Lacerz

        Or it’s the console. Just sayin’.

        • Frank

          How can it be the connection when it’s installing from a disc

          • Lacerz

            From reading these comments, people that disconnect from the internet aren’t having these load issues. Perhaps this is a result of the DRM/24 hour check-in changes.

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        yeah it’s probably the console, maybe the blue ray drive will break next….

        • GK15

          You’ve gone full troll

          • dave mcnair

            Lol gk15. Never go full troll!!

        • Trevor Gowe

          Nah… it’s only PS4’s breaking guy. 10,000 of them.

          • knight45

            its only been 1 to two days out with Xbox 1 out. and you’re sure that ps4 is the only one breaking right now.

      • Not A PC Gamer

        Actually no it’s not dummy thats a console feature.. You xbots are clearly beyond saving.. No wonder you are the scourge of this industry that supports these scumbags at microsoft.

        • Brandon

          You’re a moron.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            No son you corporate slaves are inept, gullible, naive and puppets ready to get bent over for another decade.

            Let me know when that DRM (which is currently hiding inside your console’s innards) makes a full return and you are forced to pay $70 a year in the US for XBL Gold how that works out for you MORON.

            You sorry pathetic Microsoft supporters are the scourge of this industry kid. Get a fucking grip and wake your ass up please.

          • Use common sense

            Uh oh, looks like someone has a bit of a temper, calm down jackass

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Oh look.. someone can run their mouth on the internet without any reprucussions to his face… Typical message board nerd.

            I strongly suggest you come up with a reason to dismiss all the wrong that Microsoft and their deaf, dumb and blind supporters are doing to this industry,.

            Silly kid..

          • skypilot1992

            Ad hominems are the lowest form of argument and demonstrate an inability to articulate in a civilized way. Defenestration of the predeliction is recommended. I would say this to your face if you care to Skype. There is an adage concerning discerning a fool from a wise man which I believe your missives have met abundantly.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Actually no you wouldn’t much more say it to my face on the real. Also the next time you speak to me use English please. You make about as much sense as screendoors on a submarine and even less sense than a corporate slave xbot.

            Either way everything I said is the truth, your mellennial baby generation loves to hide behind the keyboard son.

          • skypilot1992

            Interesting and you prove my point. Oh yes, you ASSUMED the wrong generation…not even close. The 1992 is an event if that number was your “clue”. The first part, skypilot, comes from a generation that may call you “son”. AND, may I recommend a good English dictionary web site for your education. Also, might you be interested in expanding your metaphor base? That last one is a dinosaur.

            Interesting that the invitation was neither declined nor accepted, rather avoided. There is a term..a noun actually..for one who carries on such and yet avoids. It’s not in the form of an ad hominem either.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            And I recommend speaking english. I absolutely refuse to look up 3 words I’ve never heard in the English language in my 39 years on this planet over someone on the internet that speaks in riddles. This is your second post that makes no sense to me or the average person.

            When you can start talking like a normal human being I’ll converse with you.. if you have something you needed to discus that is. 1992 was the year I graduated high school and it’s a safe assumption when someone puts a number in their names (in video game handles at least) that it indicates the year they were born.

            Again, this post makes absolutely no sense to me just as your first post. I didn’t understand anything (if there was any point you were trying to make here) you are trying to say.

            Meanwhile the Mellennial generation continues to hide behind their keyboard. The internet has an entire generation of post born 1986 babies by the balls. End of story.

          • skypilot1992

            This has been fun. 1992 was the year of receiving my Masters; 2009 would be my Doctorate. Skypilot? I was serving in combat on the rivers in VN-’70-’71. LOVED OUR CHAPLAIN…SKYPILOT was an award winning endearing song about chaplains in ’67-“68. 1992 was also my ordination. Soooo “safe assumption” wasn’t safe. The assumption wasn’t close and once more was just another example of willful blundering ignorance. Btw..graduated from HS in 64 where I learned in a public school what you never heard, much less learned. Am sad that a 1992 HS grad wasn’t interested in expanding English. That says a lot as well. Appreciation of literature and composition ….the way to develop and appreciate ones English …..needs a wider knowledge. Could have really had fun. I’ll save you the effort and just say goodbye “son.” Not interested in having a battle of wits with one who comes unarmed. Happy New Year

          • Not A PC Gamer

            How bout a battle of fists eh? If you think I’m sad you should see what the fucking LAUSD is teaching all these wetback spics in our schools in my hometown.. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I consider myself 2 steps ahead of this younger generation in every aspect there is and that includes social interactivity.. something they clearly know nothing about.

            No son, i know for certain 98% of the american population would take one look at your fucking posts and not have a clue as to what you are even beginning to talk about.

            While a respect your service for our country, you clearly talk like a nerd and every man woman and child who reads this nonsense would be just as dumbfounded as I am.

            I did have a feeling you were going to come back and pull the intelligence card when intelligence has nothing to do with knowledge but more so about the ability to learn. I have no interests in literature other than american history and spend the majority of my time with my 2 sons and my game consoles.

            Matter of fact the smart asses of the internet are usually the biggest assholes. I used to know a girl on here just like you who claimed to have this big Harvard Education when she was nothing more than a Narcissistic and Jaded Right Wing Republican cunt who doesn’t give a damn about others and should be put in her proper place regardless if shes a female or not.

            Besides your big words, there wouldn’t be any battle of wits when it comes to Microsoft and their supporters as I can clearly school you six ways from sunday on the kind of Captialist scumbag corporation they are.

            Goodbye son.. and remember.. boasting about intellectual prowness based solely on one’s vocabulary is ignorant to say the least and not only does this make you look like a pastey faced nerd with the personality of a roof shingle it makes you an “Undesirable” as well.

            I’m also not too sure you served in NAM either. You sound like one of these pathetic Mellennial babies on youtube who have these huge narcissistic and self absorbed egos.

            You want to debate Circumcision, the stupidity of organized religion or Karma, Illegal Immigration, or Microsoft’s position in the game industry.. I’ll show you a battle of wits SON.. :) And if you like, I’ll even go as far as to make a Skype account to talk with you. Just leave a name and I’ll do it. In the meantime though, You’ve used up your 3 chances already here unfortunately and I fucking warned you already.

            And yes, this will be a happy new year! :)

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Couldn’t reply eh? Probably can’t defend yourself worth shit physically either.. I’m not surprised.

          • skypilot1992

            Cute…..now you go for the physical … typical. Every time you try, you prove my point. No real wit with bite? You turn to the fight. You prove the essence of a well known (except for you?) phrase from Act II Scene II “Richelieu”. Here’s a clue…pen and sword???

            The more you accuse others of ignorance, you so superbly prove yours. Did you even go to your high school English classes? Are you able to express yourself without the overuse of invective…oooops sorry, you may not know what that word is- please see
            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/invective

            Defending myself physically? I’ll let my SERE and river rat days speak for me. A time before you were even conceived.

            This is sooo much fun.

          • skypilot1992

            I agree but be wary of using such descriptors see my comment below

      • Not A PC Gamer

        Your shit brain is to blame for your ignorance towards Microsoft as a whole. I think it’s time you grow some balls and grow some principles.. both of which you stupid xbots will never possess.

        If you support Microsoft you’re quite simply a corporate slave as you have no clue of their history of abandoning their products.

        • skypilot1992

          Now why is a “not PC Gamer” even bloviating in this arena for gamers? I came to this site to get a perspective on a gift and hints for methods to get past 6 barbarians in the arena. Instead”…….obscenities and character assassination seem to prevail.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Again none of your fucking posts make a hit of sense, maybe you should run along jackass to some deserted Island with the rest of the undesirables. I also left you a pretty nifty response here only to have my long reply deleted by these cocksucking moderators.

            I told you you lost your chance to converse with me because you speak like Poindexter from Revenge of the fucking NERDS.

            Your only hope now son, is to leave a skype account. I don’t like using it but I’ll make an account just for you and delete the NSA spy service upon putting you in your proper place.

          • skypilot1992

            Ok…..you win. Ur the best. You’ve got the world figured out and must be prospering. I envy your life of game consoles and the boys. I’ll just go on suffering in my own matrix world,. Yours has got to be soooo much better. Enjoy whatever life you’ve got left. This exchange has really been well received by all in the class. You are a superb example and played well.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Blah fucking blah..if anyone and I mean ANYONE ever came off to me like a smart ass in this real world trying to tout intellectual superiority to me, it wouldn’t end well for them. Consider yourself lucky this is just the internet.

            Also seeing as you failed at leaving a skype account this all ends here. Again you had your chance at a face to face sit down with me but you blew it. Goodbye Poindexter… :)

          • skypilot1992

            You still don’t get it. This was catch and release, fish. Did enjoy the time, Though river carp are pretty easy to hook. Oh Lordy it was fun playing the line.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            You’re right and 98% of the general population of english speakers wouldn’t understand a thing you say. I would have loved seeing you face to face though and actually witness your nonsense first hand.

            Meanwhile you speak like an undesirable pastey faced nerd from Big Bang Theory and Revenge of The Nerds. I wouldn’t be surprised if you had pastey skin, ingrown nose hairs and the personality of a roof shingle.

            Either way you had your chance to run your mouth to me on skype and you lost it. Have fun on the internet because you are a bigger clown than my Captain Spaulding avatar.

          • skypilot1992

            game, set, match – you probably won’t understand that either troglodyte,
            which is a compliment considering what you have shown in this
            “repartee.” At least now you have risen above the obscenities/invectives which you laced in abundance through your earlier writing. Your second paragraph
            was much better. Well done.

            BTW the original Captain Spaulding (Groucho Marx) would have been truly aghast at your limited vocabulary. Well “get along little doggie,” it’s time for you to be on your way.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Again showing you are a pastey faced nerd. Lets get something straight you Undesirable piece of shit. NO ONE in the real world talks like you.. And my entire office floor has read your comments to me and called you a typical
            UNDESIRABLE.

            AND SON, I don’t have a limited vocabulary kiddo. Throughout my entire life I’ve noticed my vocabulary to be pretty leaps and bounds over most people I converse with almost to the point that they are nearly always asking me, “What does that mean?”

            You on the other hand are a special case… because the Hybrid Cylon talking in riddles from BSG makes more sense than you. Continue to chalk this up to being uneducated because you are a deluded and out of touch fuck who spends his days behind a keyboard trying to feed what little ego you have the ONLY WAY YOU KNOW HOW…… OVER THE INTERNET.

            Had this actually been a face to face physical encounter I would do more than just bruise your ego. Now you tell me SON… You gonna bark all day little doggie? Or are you going to bite?

            I believe the latter..

          • skypilot1992

            Had to show “it” to others did you? Not impressed. Just confirms your working environment. BTW all that bluster in your last note? That’s impressive—in the waterfront bar after beers.

            Since you are so sure that what I write is not understood by over …what was it you said… 85 or 90 % of the population. You placed my writing in the upper 85 to 90 percentile—at least in your know world (the office floor and the home with the two consoles?). Yours on the other hand?….. not so much. I also get a kick out of another characteristic of yours. You just can’t resist answering replies even though you have repeatedly signed off. Addictive compulsion. One thing is true, we’re both probably narcissistic.

          • lance

            Fucktard. You are a trolling bitch. No gf, lives at home in moms basement, fat, and flips burgers. I know im late to the party but holy shit batman. Had to hope you see this.
            One question though? Do you have naked pictures of your mom? If not do you want some?

          • Not A PC Gamer

            Those are nice assumptions Timmy dipshit. I’ve been away from home now for 20 years and Married for 6.

            Your childish comments only prove you’re another gullible Xbot and as much of a nerd as this “UNDESIREABLE” as Skypilot.

            When you get done trimming your ingrown nose hairs and actually am able to feed yourself every morning let me know kid.

          • Not A PC Gamer

            LOL kid.. if you’re going to reply to the adults.. I suggest you leave Romper Room once and for all. Oh that’s right.. you never heard of Romper Room before? Try google kiddo!

          • RainbowRoad

            You just wont shut the fuck up will you? Enough with all you’re stupid fucking comments that no one wants to listen to, other than yourself. Yea Microsoft are really fucking annoying sometimes but that wont stop all the people who are continuing to go along with it. Besides… You are supposedly an “Adult” so stop fucking being a child and act you’re age mate. Haha fucking “Timmy Dipshit” grow up you piece of shit.

          • Esteban

            Dumbass ranting corporate slave racist,SHUT THE FUCK UP! Peace from a wetback,you melanin challenged neanderthal.

          • Bitgangster

            Uh you graduated from high school in 1964? Which was 50 years ago. Which would make you 68 years old and on a gaming site trying to figure out how to get past 6 barbarians? Ya I highly doubt that. And you have very clearly spent a lot of time making sure every word you said had 4 syllables in it. So while I think the other guy is a big tool I’m afraid I’m going to have to lump you in with him as well, because both of your guys dialogue was so ridiculous I actually took time to respond to them. No reason to throw every word in your thesaurus coupled with a few Sonnets at me either because I will never see your response. So enjoy your banter on forums Mr. 68 year old troll.

          • skypilot1992

            Hi Bitgangster. Actually I will be 68 in April coincidently graduated from Oregon State in 1968. But I’m not real sure why you decided to climb on me. I was honestly looking for a site which could provide an opportunity to exchange ideas. I was just given an xbox1 after not having played a real game since Duke Nukem. Xbox was A retirement gift. I got sick and tired of somebody’s rancid responses and decided to have fun and the hook was taken. And, no it didn’t take me all that much time to write responses to him. Troll??

          • Girl gamer

            Wow. I just wanted to see about download times. This is like a soap opera!

          • skypilot1992

            Yeh… it is isn’t it? Ever notice how it’s always the same thing, different channel? Thought I’d have at least a bit of fun. On the other hand, still haven’t figured out how to get past that first set in the Colosseum. Much better luck with Battlefield 4. Haven’t had much problem with downloads. Not sure if it’s because of being next to Redmond WA. Good luck.

    • epic beast

      Ryse son of rome took like 20 minutes, call of duty ghosts was done in 10.

      • Tyler McCartney

        Troll

      • Clate

        That sounds about average PS3 times which honestly werent that big of a deal. People blow things way out of proportion. (I am a Playstation guy and own a PS4)

      • evans

        for me its not the install from the disc its the stupid updates once in game that take forever with mine

    • Ruben

      wired,..cause I installed BF4 and it took me like 6 minutes for it to be ready ( but multiplayer wasn’t ready till like 20 min later)

    • Tyler Davis

      If you are downloading it and not installing from a disc – you and the world are trying to do this right now.

    • Ajay

      It seems to boost after the 4% mark

    • Dubination

      heres what worked for me: Cancel download, then disconnect internet in settings or unplug ethernet. then turn off modem. Next turn off your box and boot up again and retry installation offline. This for some reason worked

      • DIRK

        How do you cancel download?

      • DanielTourtillott

        I miss my ol nes

    • Tyler Davis

      Sounds like you are downloading it and not just installing from the HDD.

    • GK15

      Just download the day one patch and then disconnect from the interwebs, restart your console and install all of your games offline for now. You can start playing less than 5 minutes (about 5-10%) into the install while the rest of the game installs in the background.

      It’s a launch bug, but easily countered.

    • Cat

      I agree, it takes waaaaay too long. Really wishing I had a PS4….

    • Guest

      The xbox one really sucks bro. I spent an entire day with it myself.. So glad I didn’t buy that POS.. They ruined everything.

      It appears the roles are definitely reversed this gen aren’t they? Last gen the 360 had download and installation speeds that wiped their ass with PS3. Now this gen, it’s the polar opposite.

      Consider this Karma for all Microsoft supporters.. I know I do.

  • Mark Danger Hopps

    Well I can’t say I didn’t see this coming. I predict a number of reports of failures, online not working, OS issues and more…

    • Whitbizzle

      I have also said this all along. PS4 announced in Sony’s own time, Microsoft panic and don’t want to be left behind, announce Xbox One and then struggle to meet a unrealistic deadline for the Microsoft staff.

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        yup

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        It’s typical M$, they know about these issues, they must have yet they still release the console with no warnings to their consumers at all.

        • Whitbizzle

          Why is the Xbox taking the game data from online and not the disk? Sort of defeats the object of having a disk at all. Also this would mean Xbox One does need to be online to play games

          • 27enemies

            Nope it wont need to be online as the license is on the disc. alternatively the license is downloaded for offline play if the whole game is downloaded. people are only having issues now that everyone is trying to download from the cloud at once.

          • JP

            this shouldn’t happen because of the cloud

          • TheEmoRat

            What do you think their original goal was? always online, no disc with drm

        • Cool dude

          What the?? What the hell dude?

          You have an inflated standard on XO because its the competitors, so much so that you expect their console release to be near flawless? And when they get one thing wrong, you make a huge deal out of it?

          Honestly man, its not like Sony warned everyone of the unresponsive PSN servers on day one or Nintendo on their own online servers.

          Seriously, what you do is simply not cool. You need to look at both competitors with the equal standards.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            I think you’ll find I said that the failure rate of the ps4 was unacceptable, your argument is invalid.

          • Jeremy

            Less then 1% is more then acceptable. Out of 1,000,000 only around 10,000 have had repairs issued.Considering they may sell another 2,000,000 world wide having 30,000 console’s out of that dead to me is a pretty successful launch when you look at the past with the 360’s 54% failure rate and I believe the PS3’s peaked at 23%

          • raine204

            Im with you 100% Jeremy. But with a launch like this, it’s so scrutinized that that 1% might as well be 54%. Especially to trolls.
            And I realize that even in a semi-perfect build environment with ideal work conditions and ideal knowledgeable caring workers, your still going to get probably a 1% failure rate just due to materials, nothings perfect 100% of the time.
            But a launch like the P$4 & M$ XB1 its under a microscope….and even some winners who “claim” they were forced labor interns spitting/breaking products with no verifiable back up WHATSOEVER can damage a launch.
            And for the record I feel bad for who ever does have a damaged P$4 and its unacceptable for a unit like XB1 to take forever to install off of disc (so I feel for you too XB1 gamer bro’s).
            Game on.

          • Chris

            Agreed. Sony had issues too. Any global console launch will. It’s a result of trying to please all of these assholes at the same time.

            Yeah i worked for a top Notch Electric Motors company for 21 years and we specialized in custom Control Boards and are Quality team always insisted that if we kept are returns under 1% that we would be successful. And they were Right.

          • Cool dude

            No, I NEVER said anything like that. Don’t pull out words out of the thin air for argument’s sake.

          • JP

            I’m not hating on Microsoft but Microsoft brag about the cloud that is so fast and power it can handle so many people at once so this shouldn’t happen.

          • Tdognson

            I totally agree CoolDude! i used to be a constant gamer but My internet is very poor so cant really play the games I would like to but I think youve hit the nail on the head dude. Both microsoft and Sony have some answering to do but the bottom line is we are all just slaves to the industry and we all feel the need to purchase the consoles and the games. The companies do what they do so peeps like us can enjoy their fruits as it where, however. with todays technilogy this should be easier for example why not have the first initial xbox one update support the games so we dont need to wait about on the install/update and if the install is from disc why does this take so long? anyway, I love xbox but i think i would just be as happy with PS4.

        • GK15

          Yeah because PS4 didn’t hav any issues at launch.

          My XB1 should arrive in a few hrs and I can speak to all this soon enough.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            At least Sony came out with an expected failure rate before launch

          • GK15

            Of .4%?

            God bless them in their infinite wisdom and their general concern for consumer everywhere!

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            I don’t see your point?

          • Lacerz

            Enjoy your console! I’d love to play DR3!

          • GK15

            You too Lacerz! Enjoy your PS4.

          • Lacerz

            Thanks! I have to wait ’til Christmas, but I unboxed it and tested it to make sure it works… and it’s updated and loaded with games. I love system launches and all the crap they bring!

          • GK15

            I know right!? There’s something about getting a new console. Especially when they only come around once a decade. I always thought you were in the UK for some reason.

          • Lacerz

            Stateside, but I’d love to visit my neighbors across the pond! Hopefully your console is issue free. From what I’ve read in these comments, disconnect your internet after installing the D1 update. Fingers crossed!

          • GK15

            Thanks dude! Likewise, I hope yours goes smoothly as well!

          • raine204

            I did the same thing with my P$4.
            No games for it yet…waiting on dreaded Black Friday sales.
            But ya…wrapped, sitting in the closet waiting for Christmas….sigh….it calls to me…yess..my precious calls to me…..my…..Precious!

          • Lacerz

            I’m going digital this time around, so I’m going to be checking Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals on the PSN storefront. I’ll need to upgrade the HDD, but being able to play one game on two consoles at the same time is a huge plus for families.

          • raine204

            Im actually looking forward to your review.
            Truth.

          • GK15

            Typing this from my XB1. All is well so far!

        • Ryan

          It’s lauch day, so there will be a problem or two, if you are telling me the PS4 lauch day went smoothly then gohead.

        • jb223

          The big warning stickers expressing that users must not move the console w/ a disc inside coupled with the talks of disc drive issues shows that they will warn their consumers about any faulty issues….but only after they’ve bought the box.

      • Kelvin Roy Leek

        But how come the ps4 has loads of problems then

        • Boz

          I didn’t have any load problems with my PS4. I put disk in, update game took me one minute and I was playing with no other wait time. I believe the issues are all due to crappy shipping from Amazon.

        • Mark Danger Hopps

          It doesn’t, it had a less than 1% failure rate (still to high in my opinion though) and obviously that effected a very small number of people

          • Joseph Lan

            If you think a 1% failure rate for an advanced piece of hardware is unacceptable, then you’d better not buy any electronics item ever again.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            i’m usually in the 99% so i’m still getting a day 1 ps4

          • creampie

            i hope you’re in the 1% this time just for acting like a moron

          • Kelvin Roy Leek

            Less than 1% so Sony says Sony has a track record of lieing.eeven there sales figures wont be right as they go on items shiped
            not sold

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            Put it this way I haven’t seen anything to suggest the failure rate is higher, if you look at the thread on here regarding the ps4’s issues you’ll find very few people commenting with issues. This thread about the xbox ones issues has over 400….

            says it all really

      • Lacerz

        True. All the “Not available at launch” disclaimers were signs that this was a rushed product. Makes you wonder what other serious QC/QA issues will arise.

    • GK15

      I don’t think so. It’s been 8 years since the 360 launched. They’ve been planning this for sometime. They were even able to manufacture nor consoles than Sony apparently. Launch issues are inevitable.

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        So why didn’t they launch in as many territories? why did they actually delay territories they had originally announced?

        I think they were planning on a later release date

        • GK15

          They cited Kinect voice compatibility issues. If they had come out with it anyway people like you would have loved it and bashed them for that. I imagine a few “typical M$’s” would have been said.

          Xbox Live has issues for a few hours and the evil empire has planned this and screws the consumer again. PSN goes completely dead, blue line of death, etc. and all you say is a gentle “unacceptable.”

          Seriously you used to have good opinions, but your bias is getting old.

          • kevydee

            kinect voice still doesnt work so thats a spin.

            microsoft were not ready, and they always play this game. xbox launched after ps2, had time to perfect.

            360 came out when it wasnt ready early to beat the ps3 and it cos them a billion (max desperation)

            now theyre releasing a week early to try and beat ps again, its sad. also maximum back peddles on drm.

            theyre always either waiting to see what sony does or trying to beat them out of the blocks and its never worked for them, theyre always second best

          • GK15

            Lol! Almost all of what you just said is complete conjecture. Do you just make this sh*t up as you go? Or do you believe every internet rumor/conspiracy theory about the console you love to hate? Both perhaps?

    • RafaelX

      Lol just got on here, The problem has been fixed, calm down fanboy

      • Mark Danger Hopps

        Not what i’m hearing….

        • RafaelX

          ? Have you not read the top comment?

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            have you? that aint working for everyone

          • jaskdavis

            Ok guys calm down, it will get sorted out :) Im glad I did not have this problem with BF4.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            The blue ray drive issues are more worrying to be honest

          • jaskdavis

            Well I have not had problems with it and Im sure many others don’t, stop discouraging others and being a negative nancy Mark! I know your Pro Sony and anti MS, but this is a big deal for people, and some don’t have the will power to reassure themselves that it will get sorted out and that it’s not the end of the world. You are too quick to stomp out any hope that any Xbox One consumer on here has.

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            It’s just a bit of anger dude, since The Sony launch and the xbox douche bags jumped on a less than 1% failure rate as if it was the end of the world i’ve been waiting for the launch of Xbox one because i knew there would be problems.

            Venting my anger but it’s pretty justified i think especially given how wide spread this issue seems to be and how many reports of the faulty blu ray drives are coming in

          • jaskdavis

            I feel ya guys, I did not realize they gave you guys crap? Most PS4 articles maybe had 10-15 comments, where maybe half complaining, this is well on it’s way to 300 comments. Not trying to hide the fact, but MS gets thrashed ten fold compared to sony on any article on any site and you guys know it. Im glad PS4 had a smooth launch (yes it was smooth) but I just wish people had some patients and look for fixes or answers (Like Clinton) instead of just saying “Fuck MS, My game wont install, returning Tomorrow!”. It’s just silly, If clinton did not address this issue, then imagine what the comment section would be like now?!

          • RoadShow

            Dude we have been attacked about every tiny thing on PS4 regardless of how fast it gets fixed and the 99.4% to 99% good PS4’s out there.

            Freaking logik whatever his fking name is deserves to get thrashed and bashed until there is no tomorrow.

          • logik893

            What happened fanboy… YOUMAD? The only one I ever get into is with you. I am sure more than half of the people on this site dont like you, go cry in a corner.

          • RoadShow

            Man are there a lot of pissed off xbots out there. All these problems with the xbox one are getting to them.

          • logik893

            Im getting my console later on tonight… Cant be pissed for something that hasnt happened to me yet. Your desperation is funny.

          • RoadShow

            Yeah well good luck installing the day 1 patch and any of your games.

            The OCD part of my brain doesn’t like the xbox one disks on the left side of the cases.

          • logik893

            LOL, this sucka said he has OCD. explains why you post the same ish over and over and over and over again. Copy paste much?

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            Lol, the “Xbots”…

            =D

          • RoadShow

            LOL, you are the pathetic piece of $hit acting like the PS4 hiccups were some huge deal that would hamper it the entire generation and relating it to RROD which is completely absurd.

            I never came to this site to be liked. I came here to school xbots spewing disinformation and have succeeded. I now come here because I enjoy the community including the xbox gamers. But pieces of $hit like you, Facts First & IHATEHIPSTERSSS are nothing but idiotic trolls spewing disinformation. You add nothing to the community and should be banned.

            I now go to other sites to school xbots and am well liked wherever I may go.

          • logik893

            Lol… Just how you take your time copy and pasting the same thing over and over and over and over again, I am sure you took your time making up most of those accounts? Correct… Get a life bro. You say you have a “wife”, spend more time with her than you do here. Look how many posts you have here, you’re an embarrassment to human society.You show that you have no friends outside of the internet.

          • RoadShow

            LOL whatever makes you feel better than you know you are wrong and the majority of the world agrees with me.

            Just the dumb xbot trolls thumb me down because they don’t want to accept the truth. No matter where I go not one of you idiotic xbots have a leg to stand on. You have to sit there and take my $hit because you are the one with a POS console. It’s just a fact, if you support xbox anyone can come in and bitch slap you with some facts that are going to leave a bad taste in your mouth.

          • logik893

            *yawn* Youhave a pathetic sad life… You waste your time here sitting here arguing with people. I take you as a joke just like most people do.

          • RoadShow

            You mean like what you are doing right now?

            Son I can do more with 1% of my brain than you can with 100%. I’m better than you on my worst day and your best. I school idiots like you multitasking at work it’s nothing and it feels good to keep the good world good.

            People just need to know these things and obviously they care.

          • Facts First

            You should use the other 99% of your brain to learn how to write complete sentences. Your grammar would indicate that you have the intelligence of a 9th grader.

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            How so?

          • James

            Guys, guys chill out.
            Roadshow, I don’t see logik as a troll. Nowhere near idiots like Fact first , Blarg or Hipster. No need to take everything to heart. I think you can have serious discussions with him as he can praise Sony or bash MS when they deserve it.
            And logik, no need to get personal and comment on family members. That was low.

          • logik893

            I know man… I apologize on that. Was having a slow day at work and was anxious to get out of there. I am now calm since I picked up my XB1 and luckily I dont have a broken disc drive.

          • James

            Cool. I think just like the PS4 issues last week. This is blown out of proportion. And there are fanboys who actually lie about stuff just like some did last week.
            Have a good time with your X1.

          • JohnPaulGremlic

            LOL RoadShow got 96 votes on one comment. That’s about 25% of all the votes you’ve ever had.

            I agree with RoadShow. You are just a pathetic xbot

            ROFLMFAO

          • logik893

            Did he call one of his internet friends for back up? Dont know who you are, therefore I will not reply to you after this.

          • Facts First

            No, that’s his other account.

          • jonas

            The XBox One comes with two free games Fifa 14 and Killer instinct.

          • RoadShow

            Killer instinct is not a free game, only 1 character it’s a very incomplete game without paying.

            But what the hell, I’ll give it to ya for trying.

            Xbox live games with gold does not exist for xbox one. I found out that it will eventually but more info to come in 2014. So while xbots are waiting for more information playstation gamers will be getting free game after free game.

            Then when it does finally come to xbox one they will likely be garbage like what 360 has been getting. I mean some good games have come to 360 via games with gold but they literally are 6-7yr old $5 bargain bin games. Still better than nothing though!

          • Lacerz

            Can’t we all just get along???

            ;)

          • GK15

            You get yours get? Mine should be arriving any minute. I’ve got Ryse, KI, AC4 and BF4.

      • Scott Hall

        Already returned this piece of American made trash. LOL! the problems have been fixed you say? As soon as I opened the box I had gash marks all over the box itself which is unacceptable for a “brand new” product. Like think about it for a minute, how in the living f*** do you get gash marks over a system. If I was blind and deaf I could assemble a pc without problems. Second, my blu-ray drive didn’t even work. It actually sounded like a hard drive clicking over and over again indicating it has failed. WOW! I am actually fuming, whoever is the lead for quality control should be regarded as a moron. The best part is after all the claims that MS made about manufacturing more consoles than Sony, I was still left empty handed. It took me 3 hrs on hold just to speak to some retard at MS customer service to tell me I’m shit out of luck and have to wait “until they find me a replacement unit which will take anywhere from 2-4 weeks” LOL!. I simply decided to take my cash back and not even bother, thanks to Wal-marts lax return policy.

        • jaskdavis

          So your blaming MS for your “Gash Marks” (lol) even though it was probably from shipping or store handling that did that? Good Luck with life…

          • Scott Hall

            Shipping wouldn’t have anything to do with it you dip shit, especially sonsidering it was already in the box that it was shipped and hence protected. It was the individual/machinery that packaged it at the manufacturing plant. But thanks for coming out, P.S. good luck with logic…

          • Scott Hall

            No the problem would result in who packaged the item in the factory, hence it would be MS’s problem you stupid dipshit. Thanks for coming out though, good luck with logic…

    • jb223

      Yeah I’ve read Microsoft sources (can’t remember if it was “official” or off the record) say that they didn’t expect Sony to drop as soon as they did, so they had to push up their time tables…The proof is in the pudding though, look how long it took MS to reveal their release date, and the Ryse devs talking about how bad their crunch time was, and the Kinect’s voice commands being a bit lacking. I feel like the One would have much better sales if they had just waited until early 2014, or whenever the console was perfect for launch. In this day & age, it doesn’t matter who launches first, just who launches better…look at the wii u sales.

    • Frostwall

      no more or less ready than sony. Just bugs and tech probs just like every launch sony and microsoft have ever had.

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      Yep!

      “Xbox One” = Failbox One

  • Clinton Lundberg

    yer an hour for forza 5 at 0%

  • Clinton Lundberg

    yep an hour on forza 5 at 0%

  • Curtis Kazee

    Ryse son of rome took an hour to download 3 % and then it let me launch the game, after setting everything up and launching the campaign it went to another install screen and has been setting there for 20 minutes. its 321 in the morning and ive been trying to play games since 1230. im a die hard xbox guy but if this is whats to be expected ill eat the loss and trade this thing back to gamestop as soon as i can get my hands on a ps4. this is crazy!

    • Villanoushebrew

      Been sitting waiting for ryse to get to 3% for an hour and a 1/2 now I’m at 90% for the campaign been waiting 30 min

  • Mr Titus

    If i have to downlad the Forza 5 31.76 Gigs as an ‘UPDATE’ on this DSL connection i have… it’s going to be just mind numbing anytime an update occurs… If I have to download all near 32 Gigs of data, it’s going to take me over a day of solid full-bandwidth downloading…

    • jake

      my calculations say that you will be sitting there waiting 33 hours for your game to download.

  • njb

    This is bad, I can’t believe they have released the xbox one In this state. It was bad enough the 360 was rushed out.

  • Emanuel Fuentes

    Yeah, I’m heated right now. BF4 install is sitting at 2% after about 45 minutes. Why is it trying to pull the data from the network and not the disc that is sitting in the bay, I have no clue. This isn’t even counting the massive update that I know is coming once the game starts. I have 2 other games to install after BF4. MS & XB1 are pretty fail to me right now.

  • abs

    Its a disgrace how far we have progressed in tech and yet they still cant get it right. Cod patch been installing for 3 hours. Im over it

  • Duke

    My mate picked his Xbox One up at 8am in the morning for a breakfast launch. Only just got COD Ghost to start playing like an hour ago… Its almost 5pm now.

  • abs

    These guys for real? Wtf is goin on

  • Corcoran

    6% on 2k through 45 min wtf

  • Clinton Lundberg

    found a solution guys.

    Disconnect it from the internet completely, reset the xbox cancel the download and retry, while the internet is still disconnected…it went from 0 % to 20 % in 3 mins

    • lars1280

      So does this work? Im glad im sitting back right now, knew there would be problems, i hope there not to bad, im a hardcore Gears fan and hope for Gears 4, Judgement dont count!! the controls are way better then ps3 too

      • Phil

        This does work however as soon as you re connect to the Internet it asks you to install an update which then won’t let you play the game

    • hechittes

      This works. Disconnected. Canceled all updates and clicked install disc. Went to pee and cam back to 11% now at 40 after about 2 minutes

    • hechittes

      Thanks clint. Strong work

      • Cat

        Thanks for this hey. Totally worked for Ryse. Was stuck at 3% for about 2 hours. Read this and turned the internet off. Turned the Shitbox One off with the controller. Internet back on, box back on. Went from 3% straight to Ready :)

        Call of Duty installed in 10 minutes without a problem

        Still. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s a pretty disappointing situation we find ourselves in

        • Cat

          Hahahahaha okay now been stuck on first in game loading screen for about 15 mins…bar not moving…

          Not Happy

    • Albi

      So turn my router off, reset Xbox, dont reconnect and resume you say?

    • GK15

      So basically, don’t have it connected to the internet? Do you have to download the day one patch first?

    • EP1C

      Thanks man, It worked! People need to stop freaking out, Hiccups are bound to happen. IT’S A LAUNCH

    Actually mines mines moving pretty good now. While it was installing I went to the store an acted like I wanted to buy it but hit cancel an the download started moving right along. At 21 percent for ac4 an it’s only been 5 minutes

  • Weezy F Baby

    I own the ps4 and just got the Xbox one at midnight. This load time is so ridiculous fuck Xbox if this is how it’s going to be the ps4 is way better. It’s not even close. I am a die hard Xbox player and fan but this is not right considering the price an launching a week later. If this is not fixed I will be returning this shit box that they dare call next gen gaming all in one worthless shit

      Ohh man

  • lars1280

    Did you find solution yet? This is crazy,i heard something about blu ray drive sounds like a Garborator too..

  • Justin Mittelstadt

    My COD: Ghosts is stuck at 4% and has been for at least 40 mins. So far I am regretting this system already. Hopefully it’s installed by time I wake up in the morning or it’s going back to Gamestop.

  • headly

    Will the game install off the disc without internet?

  • Jfcarp92

    100 percent downloaded. Only took about 15 minutes. Lovin this!

      Your not alone buddy where in the same boat except for the weather part why did I take my 360 down 8-(

  • omar

    This is ridiculous

  • Freddy

    BF4 on 2% been downloading for about 40 min already :/

    • jose

      Reset ur xbox and install it again and will go faster

  • hopes

    Yay rise finaly at 1% after 3 hrs jesues christ

  • Jason Tarr

    After waiting for AC4 to install for 3 hrs to 7% I tried to cancel the install, disconnect the Xbox from the network and reinstall. Now 10 minutes later I’m at 30% installed. For the initial install of a game looks like you want to disconnect from the net, install, re-connect and update then play.

    I’m sure Facts First won’t be having these same issues so hold tight and he will have a solution for this minor hick-up

          stick your overheating blue light gaystation up your candy ass

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            LOL

          • Shunbagwell

            Less than 1%? haha I wonder what percent Xb1 has with install problems, let alone with actual hardware and software problems. Don’t be ignorant, Sony made a better console

          • mathMaticks

            whaa??? Beast Station you mean,, Thing runs flawless. and fast. You look like a guy, that likes to stick things up his ass.. Kinect is definitely for you.

        • Blarg

          Lol you take these people seriously? There is a reason few sites are reporting this apart from here – because it’s not an issue and it’s been largely fixed!

          • Mark Danger Hopps

            just the blue ray drive problems now then?

          • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

            xD

    • KO4LA

      Or you could disconnect it from the internet and install so it goes 50000 times faster from the disc and just… be happy with your console, I mean, you went out of your way to get it first day

      • mathMaticks

        Why wasn’t it designed that way.??? to go 50000 times faster from disk???

  • Bhawk312

    I just want my time and money back 2K has not left 0% in an hour. This is truly sad I feel like Ivd been robbed. I will be returning this POS tomorrow morning. (Truly Disappointed)

  • headly

    Mine keeps saying paused and wont start

    • Tired

      As bad as obama care

  • headly

    Now says queued can anyone help??

    • hopes

      Got the samething only happens to me when im offline but when I get back on it goes back to my 2%

    • Julian

      go to the games section while you are disconected then highlight the game and press the “start” button (or thats what it used to be called) then cancle the whole instalation then retry it. make sure you are disconected from the internet! it should only take bout 4 mins :)

  • hechittes

    Disconnect from internet guys. …restart xbox. Cancel all installations and then select to install disc. Playing RYSE after 12 minutes and I have shitty DSL

    • bigbry7090

      How do you cancel all installations?

      • how

        yeah

      • trevor

        Go to the my games and apps option on the home and hover over the hames u have tried to install hit the start button and choose the option cancel installation

    • trevor

      Can u play online when your done?

    • Samantha Johnson

      Thank you

  • watcher278

    Sounds like the problem is most of these games download thier patches before they install and that will depend on how fast your internet is and how congested their servers all, which probably are overloaded. Hopefully they figure all this stuff out soon.

  • Freddy

    Yes disconnect from Internet then restart BF4 was stuck at 2% then suddenly started jumping up now im playing campaign while the rest finished installing

  • hopes

    I see alot of us are having troubl with the same thing im hopeing this will be fixed by some patch

  • jj1287

    im fuckin pissed off i just wanna play 1 of my games but i cant coz i gotta wait hours to install

  • The F’N Rock

    what the fuck is this bullshit i got fifa14 and cod ghosts and cant even install any of them grrrr

  • Noworries

    To be honest, i never ran into any problems with the installation of games, even while my Xbox was logged onto the internet. Ryse took about an hour, but i was playing it after a couple of minutes. Killer Instinct took a while, but only because it was in que. Dead Rising 3 took half an hour at most. Maybe i am just lucky lol.

    On another note, i have no idea how to actually quite out of a game. I also have no idea how to alter a game’s position in the installation que…

  • Zipp

    Whoever had the amazing thought to disconnect and restart the reinstall THANK YOU!

  • headly

    Will be going bak to shop tomoz this is fukd

    • jkwasy

      People, just disconnect from internet, and restart the download. It’ll be done in no time. Settle your shit. This stuff is to be expected on launch day. Just be glad we actually have a solution. The PS4 guys that had bricks had to send them out for replacement

      • mathMaticks

        Naw,, my and all my friends -PS4 are working flawless bro.

  • trevor

    It works if u do it offline then your all set

  • headly

    I cant cancel it

  • marcus

    hey guys my xbox keeps saying installation stopped when i try to instal the 1.2gb update for call of duty ghosts, can anyone tell me what’s going on?

  • Golf face

    All you have to do is install it offline. Mine was done in twenty minutes.

  • headly

    How do I cancel it

  • bdlckkd

    Every thing works fine on my console…no problems..installs take less then 15 minutes before I can play them…the day one update probably took 20 minutes wasn’t really that bad…

  • typical allstar

    i feel bad for the ones who are having problems I’m at 40% for ghosts and I’m running a two bar right now and it has been around 30 mins so hopefully it won’t take as long for dead rising 3 when i pick it up tomorrow. if you cancel the download does it completely restart it?

  • Kelso

    I’ve had the xbox for 8 hours now and have not played one game since none will install words can’t explain how disappointed I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • mxadam

    EVERYBODY , do what Clinton Lundberg suggests below. Install times are fine then, I was stuck for ages then done what he said and it was fast after that!!!

  • Golf face

    I can’t even figure out how to install that update.

  • Bigworm

    Im at 100% and working flawless on my PS4

    • Golf face

      Touché’

  • Samantha Johnson

    Cancel all downloads, Disconnect from Internet, restart and then install. Installs with in minutes

  • InterVe

    Yeah Im really pissed I tried Battlefield 4 and it doesn’t come up in the games and apps area for a while which scared me it then popped up randomly after it was 9% done and it was stuck on that percentage for the whole day so I put in Forza 5 that freezes at 13% instead and completely dies then. WHY???? Stupid Xbox. I knew I should have gone with the crowd for PS4.

    • bob

      My battlefield 4 is the same, stuck at 9% and not going anywhere

  • headly

    U guys are the best 27% after 3 mins thanks heaps

    • strobezdaily

      Easy Right ? I was Mad Af ! lol

  • Messi

    Disconect from the Internet restart ur console and it should install faster mine jumped from 4% to 15% in 2min

  • Golf face

    Can anyone tell me where the update is lac aged for cod ghosts? Having trouble finding it

  • strobezdaily

    Guys !! Cancel Download ! Disconnect from Internet. Restart your Xbox ! Then Put install again !
    Mines before stayed on 0% for like a Hour .-. now after i did this, in 5 mins it went up to 15% !!

    • Annoyed!

      Did you reconnect to the internet again? I’ve tried this & it still won’t work!!!

      • strobezdaily

        No, you download it again without reconnecting to the internet

        • Annoyed!

          Yeah I did that, didn’t work :( frustrating! I wonder if it’s an issue in Australia? But then other people r playing it with no problems..

          • The F’N Rock

            nope in england theres problems

          • Smelled

            Sure is in oz however installing offline seems to work…going to try and play ghosts now

          • strobezdaily

            I installed it offline and when i tried to play multiplayer,’only local play appeared .-.

          • Smelled

            No idea on that one considering the install delays it’s probably unlikely any one can make it online

        • The F’N Rock

          doesnt work with digital copies that come with xbox as you need to be online

  • Messi

    40% now been 10

  • Pete

    Ghosts. Start install. Disconnect from the net. Turn off Xbox. Turn on Xbox. Reconnect – because you can’t install Ghosts without it – pull disc out. Put disc back in and install starts again. Sped mine up.

    • Golf face

      For some reason it won’t let me play multiplayer on anything but, local. Anybody know what thAts about?

    • mathMaticks

      sounds like a lot of steps, to play your brand new game.. What are they making you do a dance?

  • Pissedoff

    That moment when I spend all my money and I can’t install one game on this stupid console.

  • Clintlfc

    Brought the one at midnight, after queueing for 5 hours only to get home and have to wait 3 hours for ghosts to load, then uploaded my FIFA code started at 5am it is now nearly 11am and I’m at 68%. This is going to stretch my loyalty to the max! Not happy

    • strobezdaily

      Cancell download. Then Disconnect From Internet, Then Restart Console, Re Install it without connecting it to the internet. it will go faster :)

  • flopper

    You should all just do what should have been done a week ago…… Buy a PS4

  • Djcarnage

    I let the game install approximately for 4 hours (fell asleep). Progress was at 23%. I ejected the disc and put it back in and all features were available with no more downloading.

  • Gibby

    Quit the bitching after 15% the download speeds up

  • The F’N Rock

    is the ghosts multiplayer server offline or something?, im connected to the internet, the game is downloaded but all it will let me do is local play on multiplayer

  • Golf face

    When I try to get on the multiplayer for ghosts it will only let me play in local. Anyone have a clue why?

    • The F’N Rock

      same here am getn annoyed

  • Clockwise

    Can’t you play the game while it is installing?

  • strobezdaily

    Only Shows Local play When i Go to Multiplayer .-. does anybody know why ? or what to do ?

  • $500 cable box

    Ps4 installed same game in5 min ???????? Now we know why they made a DVr / cable box and not a game system

    • Guest

      My notifications lag so does the keyboard sometimes, when i view all notifications it comes up super slowly with massive lag. Any ideas?

  • Steve

    My xbox one has massive lag/slowdowns even offline. Notifications come up really slow and laggy and when i click on the notifications bar where it shows all of them its SUPER slow and lags massively same as all keyboard use. Help?

    • Steve

      Am i only one with lag problems :(

      • The F’N Rock

        nope

  • Annoyed!

    I’ve tried what everyone is saying & have cancelled the download, disconnected & tried downloading again & it just sits at 0%. I’m in Australia.

    • Smelled

      Have you tried installing without signing in to xbox
      Iive ?

  • Dave Hunter

    I have tried everything from assassins creed 4, dead rising 3, battlefield 4 and ryse… Cannot play a single one. Inhad dead rising 3 installed and then i got the Needs an update request… And then it just said failed and to keep retrying!!?? So fucking angry!

    • mathMaticks

      That sucks, I had a few rounds of Kill Zone Multi-player..The night I got my Ps4, -BF4, AND GHOST, as DL’d and installed soon as I woke up, from digital download in suspend mode.

  • Wizard of Peace

    I hope Xbox fixes their problems. Hope you have a fun day with your new console Xbox fans :D

  • Mugzy

    This is a bunch of bull crap…. i have had call of duty ghost installing for 5 hours now still at 0%… i dont understand really M$ Why sell disks if we have to install them any way????

  • Ellison Scott

    Waited a hour for forza 5 13% and I could play it?!?

  • Smelled

    We’ll it seems going in an installing without connecting to xboxlive sped up the process dramatically it went from one percent after two hours to 60% in thirty? still pretty pathetic considering all you had to do previously was insert a disk so much for early adopters..

  • ehayze

    I have a day one editon xbone and I have cod and nba 2k cod took a while but not what some are claiming. Im happy and contebt with my new box but then I didnt run into problems except for cod at 0 % for like 5 minutes any way Microsoft thank you for the next gen im gappy.

  • Matt Challinor

    We shouldn’t have to use internet to install a fucken game

  • Matt Challinor

    Ya can play while game is downloading

    • strobezdaily

      but it wont let me play online ? other apps start to download

  • wraith

    Got my xbox one an hour ago. Install games while its not connected to the net. Ghosts on 25% in 4 mins

    • strobezdaily

      Lets see if you can play online tho.

  • Beatts

    Does anyone got COD and xbox live wont load up in multiplayer?? Or is this just me

    • strobezdaily

      Same here .-. just local play right ?

      • Beatts

        Yeah, got any idea on how to fix it??

        • strobezdaily

          No .-. This better not be any hardware issues tho -.- this better be the online they have to update.

  • Den

    Disconnecting xbox from the internet seems to help get the games installed

    • Annoyed!

      By disconnecting do u just mean signing out? I’ve tried that but it STILL hasn’t sped up the process!

      • strobezdaily

        Turn off your wireless in settings also

      • Den

        Find in settings, or turn off router, restart xbox then install

  • Jackson Pilbrow

    I’ve been tryna install Call Of Duty Ghosts for 10 minutes. 18%, getting there, but slowly.

  • Larrit

    Where do you even find where to see what sort of progress you have made downloading a game from disc?

    • BillyHoWCR

      You don’t download a game from disk. You download from internet and install from disk.

  • Divine Infinity

    Thanks to you forum folks, year on year, the information and tips written on forums only becomes more reliable. Fury inspiring 0%. I cancelled it, disconnected took out disc turned off xbox then back on disc in again told it to install and slowly it now is while im still offline. It says ‘queued’ initially but this is temporary.

  • Larrit

    Trying to instal ryse and it won’t even show up in my games and apps section as actually downloading

    • BillyHoWCR

      Which are you doing… trying to install or trying to download?

      • Larrit

        We’ll I was installing lol. But now it’s on my xbox. But the update is stuck at 96%

  • elsinisto

    48 minutes into battlefield 4 and still at 1%. Looks like no games tonight. God damn you microsoft, way to ruin a Friday night!

  • Larrit

    Help plz?

  • jake

    well i reset my console to factory settings to see if the games would acually show up after i redeemed all the codes for my games will they still be on my account

  • Mtfisther

    This thing is a piece of shit installed ghosts and cant play online. Fuck you microsoft this piece of trash is going to gamestop i will take my loss

    • spideynut71

      Just how stupid are you exactly? If you indeed purchased an X1 from Gamestop, you don’t need to take ANY “loss”. They always exchange or refund on new or used opened items , or will give you store credit back, if you paid for it with part cash/credit and part trade-ins. If you lose any money on the deal, it’s your own ignorant fault.

      • Mtfisther

        I did not buy it from gamestop moron.

        • spideynut71

          LOL….you’re returning a BRAND NEW PRODUCT to a retailer other than the one from which it was purchased, and you DARE to call someone else a “moron”??? Oh, that’s just too funny…..

  • strobezdaily

    Microsoft said “We are sorry about all these installing issues. We are trying our best to make this process simpler and faster.”

  • Kelvin Roy Leek

    Well we got three and they all work fine , they take time to install but you don’t have to wait for full install to play ! some moaning Muppets on hear that would complain about anything even update was quick downloaded in less than 5 mins

  • TheEmoRat

    Well now we know why they were pushing the snap to tv function so bad. That way you have something to do while installing games

  • Fire

    This is what happens when you buy first gen consoles. You are going to experience launch issues. In essence your paying $349 or $499 to be a guinea pig. Let this be a lesson. Wait a couple of months before deciding or buying a new game console. The glitches will be worked out or the repairs & adjustments will have already been made on the new set of consoles being shipped out. Everyone is in a rush to have that shiny new toy. Smh

    • Mtfisther

      Your an idiot

      • spideynut71

        Ooooh the irony….

      • Fire

        Lol I’m an idiot? I’m just stating the obvious. Take a look at the pattern over the years. RROD, PS3 overheats, going as far as to flip your PS2 upside down to get it to read the disc. All launch issues. You are an idiot for being ignorant to issues that have been long in play.

  • Kelvin Roy Leek

    Battlefield was ten mins b4 i could play it,forza was the same as well my sons have been playing dead rising and need for speed fine

  • JT

    Tried both forza 5 and ghosts. Both were still at 0% after an hour! This is embrassing to think I picked up a console at midnight, only to crash hours later without even playing it.

  • Chris

    My Call of duty ghosts only took about 15 minutes, and it let me play at about 50% or something, and carried on downloading/installing whilst i was actually playing the game.

    I’m also downloading Forza 5, but have found it doesn’t download if your already playing a game, that said I’ve left it on the dashboard whilst typing this comment, and it’s at 8% already.

    I suppose it could just be an overhaul of new users, and will probably be like this for a few weeks i guess.

    I’be only got a 10MB Connection too.

  • Facts First

    This sounds like fabricated lies from the Sony haters. I haven’t had one issues at all. I download Forza and Ryse from the store in 45 minutes at 1:00 am. Then started playing right away. Sony will stop at nothing to make the Xbox look bad.

    • Mtfisther

      I think you are the liar, sir.

    • Mark Danger Hopps

      lol i love you man

    • Boz

      Then why aren’t you playing? You must not really have yet or else its broken and your just going through denial.

      • mathMaticks

        Exactly, when I got my Ps4, I didn’t comment on the web, for a week. To busy Beast’n

    • zpoccc

      i know reading is hard, but this article is about installing FROM DISC.

      i’ll let you read that sentence a few times and let it slowly dawn on you what’s different about your experience (i’ll give you a hint… YOU DOWNLOADED THE GAMES).

    • Shannon Novosel

      Yeah the media and places that reporting are all lying stop with your stupidity.Also if your gonna correct people on spelling and grammar learn to do all right yourself.

      Boom

    • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

      Xbox Done

  • John

    Do ppl recommend installing while connected to the net or not?

  • matty

    Restart your consoles making sure quick start is off and reset internet installing normal time now I think its were the xbox is not closing everything properly

  • Jake

    My Fifa 14 installed within 30 mins…

  • Bethh95

    My Xbox installed Battlefield 4 then updated it to 97% got stuck for an hour then went back to installing the disc, AGAIN and now it’s stuck on 0% and has been for about 45 minutes. Any advice?

    • Mtfisther

      Take the piece of shit to gamestop, trade it in and take your loss. What a joke.

      • Kd

        It’s frustrating but that is too big of loss.. It’s a first gen so of course it will have problems.. Microsoft is good at fixing there problems.. But taking it back for a mediocre as PS4.. Smh good luck

        • Shaggs138

          That’s why they continued to have red ring issues for HOW many years?
          And the PS4 has more hardware power than the XB1, making the XB1 more mediocre.

  • matty

    Wooooooo 50% on ghost after 10 mins ready to start fifa done in 20 mins just do what I said before it will work ps still a beast of a console

  • Tom

    Mine is fine….took battlefield 15 mins then went on said campaign was at 50% five mind later it’s fine…..

  • TristanPR77

    No offense to anyone but my PS4 installed Ghost and BF4 in less than 2 minutes. Now I see the PS4 is really a powerful beast.

  • Milo

    Battlefield 4 update gets stuck on 97 percent been like that for an hour anyone else have the aame issue ?

  • Matt f

    I’ve found out that if u sign out the install happens alit quicker still slow but at least it’s working I hope this isn’t the case with all games my god ! I will be sending it right back if that’s the case

  • X1ultimateGamer

    STFU you sony sheep posting this story go play crapstation 4 and stfu

  • tubz

    Haha at all you xbox fanboys

    • mathMaticks

      When they finnally get their games running, I was wondering,,,, How is life,@ 720p?

  • tubz

    450 pound for a console that plays in 720 and runs at 30fps and to top it off updates take forever

  • Zac

    Sucks to be all of you my XBO installed games like a boss and I am enjoying COD as I type..

    I guess I’ll wait for Xbox1 SP1 (service pack 1) to be shipped with the product. Windows update even has problems to this day. I hope they can square it away for everyone sake.

    Nothing worse than what PS4 experienced.

  • Focus

    Can someone tell me how much space I have on my HD…. Oh wait that’s right

  • jacob

    Ok guys to help you out with your problems my ghost went form 0 to 100% in about 20 min or less im hardwired when i was wireless ryse took forever then i hard wired and it went much faster hope this helps.

  • Svengoolie

    The problem is that people are trying to play games. Xbone isn’t for playing games, it’s for watching football.

    • Lacerz

      This made me laugh.

  • jaskdavis

    Is this on all games? I have had no issues with BF4 installing? Can I say how amazing BF4 is with 64 players!? AMAZING!

    • Lacerz

      Is it pretty sweet? Can’t wait until Christmas and I.. errr… the kids get to open the PS4. Hopefully EA has all the kinks worked out by then.

  • blackelite095

    I will say I’m am missing all the settings you get with the Xbox 360, because there like no setting on Xbox One. God took me like 15 minutes to find if second assault was downloading for BF4. Kinda miss the guide instead of it being your dashboard.

  • Chelseablue22

    How do you cancel a download? Trying to install BF4 offline but just says Queued…. :$

    • Mtfisther

      Forget it. Just take it outside, grab a sledgehammer and beat it into a thousand pieces. Face it this thing is a pile of warm shit.

    • Dave

      Go to my games and apps find the install and press start. It’ll bring up a menu.

  • peeevd off

    definately the way to go is to disconnect from the internet as people have mentioned before on here, thanks to you guys its saved me some anxious waiting time. if only MS would have instructed us all to do this in the first place!
    teething issues but im sure there will be a fix very very soon from the MS people otherwise a lot of these consoles are going to be going back to the shop.

    • jeremy lockard

      how did u install with out being connecetd to the net? nba 2k14 wont let me intall with out being connected to the internet

  • Chris

    Pretty disappointed in the process. This is a huge deal, why can’t the machine just run the games off the disc. I can only imagine a kid gets xb1 for Xmas and has to wait two hours to play it. If this isn’t required by PS4 sony will win, if it is, wii u could make a huge comeback

    • 3rdworldgamer

      obviously you were not reading/researching on xbox news. you need to download an update whicch will allow you to play games offline

  • bdlckkd

    Get a better internet plan, I had no problems from the time I got home at midnight to now, my xbox1 is perfect and the experience is incredible

  • hank

    Its so u can have amazing graphics so everyone just calm the F down

  • Modi84 .

    KZ:SF 40gb .. just takes under 3 Min!

  • CJ

    It’s because of the patches and the seemingly overloaded XBOX Live. Unplug your ethernet cable and AC4 will be playable after about 10 Minutes.

  • Larrit

    Much rather have a slow updating xbox than a sony any day.

    • plcn

      them there sony’s got them cooties i see

  • Steve

    My ghosts has been downloading all night. I wake up and it’s at 44%. I watch it, it starts going up. So go to the store, come back it flashes to like 55% than down to 0%. Now at 3%… This is bullshiznit!!!

  • KOpwn3r

    It looks like after the first 5% the installation picks up pretty quickly. It makes no sense at all why I even purchased a disk…..

    • mathMaticks

      dat DRM, always online.. would have been the Glorious Future.

  • Ryan Dickinson

    Killer Instinct is installing at a decent pace. I bought it digitally. But the disc based games like BF4 it got to 9% and stopped installing. Ghosts won’t go past 0%. The system is so quiet I can’t even tell if the disc-drive is working. So I popped in a blu-ray and that app downloaded fast and it the disc plays fine.

  • Trasidious

    Right so i did what everyone said and got the game installed, played campaign for a few hrs, full game installation complete but then turn the internet back on, drops out Midgard and back to the start sitting on 0%…. Have had to reinstall the game and cannot resume the campaign………WTF!!

    • mathMaticks

      ??? that makes no sense.. That means the file is getting corrupted some how.

  • wraith

    Installed all games updates done now playing ghosts online no problem

  • Stracciato

    I’m trying to play forza while it installs and it keeps saying i need to update it. any ideas on how to do it?

  • ddub

    Run the xbox one offline when installing disc based games to improve install speeds

  • shockey22

    Huh, that’s weird cause I can start playing disc based games in a matter of seconds on my ps4!!

    • jeremy lockard

    how are you guys installing games offline? 2k14 wont let me

  • Brad

    I haven’t been able to play a single game on mine yet. Won’t go past 0% it just stops right away

    • jeremy lockard

      have you tried offline cause mine wont let me install offline

    • Joey

      Like this so it gets viewed. Some are having problems with installing games and getting stuck at 0% have fun guys!

      It’s pretty straightforward, thankfully. First, disconnect your console from the internet (unplug it, turn your modem off, disable the console’s connection in Settings, and so forth). Then, switch off your console by holding the power button for 10 seconds, switch it on again, and try installing your games without an internet connection. Assuming you’re able to do this, you’ll then be able to reconnect once installation is complete.

      For safety’s sake, we suggest you don’t switch off the console while an installation is under way – cancel it using the menu first – and that you don’t switch it off while it’s downloading and installing the day one update

        Yes it does work! Ive already installed forza and madden is at 70% its going pretty fast.

  • JP

  • Stan

  • Dumbo

    That’s what you get for paying 500$ for an inferior product. Well deserved indeed while my PS4 takes a few seconds to load up as I get a coffee then bam playing while ur stuck at maybe 2% lol

    • Dennis

      Nice troll man. 10 for effort, -1,000 for taking a dump on people who didn’t pick your choice.

  • Bethh

    Any advice for games that get stuck at 97% for updating? Been like this for hours

  • thuglove68

    Loveing the XBOX one a great system

  • Erik Kennedy

    anybody have tips for speeding this up?

  • Dave

    I was having trouble too. I turned off my wireless connection, powered the system off and started back up without connecting to the Internet again. Actually before turning it off I canceled all installations. Put in nba 2k14. installed in 15 minutes. Same with Ryse, Dead Rising and Assassins Creed. I think the problem is, is that when your online the system wants to download a game update for each title and since everything downloads in the background it’s running slowly because of server overload. I really don’t know, just my theory but now everything is running smooth.

  • Kalebtheone

    I av my xbox one an I can’t seem to play on any of my game cod ghost has been downloading for ages an it hasn’t even moved of 0% am not happy what’s so ever does anyone no y

  • Kalebtheone

    I have found away to get it to install quicker disconcert ur internet from ur xbox cancel ur download an restart ur download I have just tied this an my call of duty has downloaded in minutes

    • logik893

      Getting my console after work in a few hours. I am going fully digital since I have a 1 year old who loves to destroy discs. I will then check out the install times they take me. And in another note, I know the broken disc drives out there are a few, but I hope I dont get a broken disc drive.

  • Mike

    So the solution of disconnecting the internet and re installing has worked but the trouble I’ve been having are the updates. For Dead Rising and Ghosts, I get stuck at 97% and it goes no where. It sucks when I cancel an installation it has to re download the whole thing. Also when I was playing DR3, the update appeared randomly when I was playing.

    • James

      I think I’ll always prefer having a physical support. Especially if its at the same price as digital copies. Love to have my games/movie library. Its always nice to unbox new games… Plus its much easier to share or borrow games with friends, and to sell off games I really didn’t like.

      • logik893

        It’s true, and I totally agree on the unboxing and selling. My friends and I mostly get the same games, so we good there. I also like displaying my physical library to people when they’re visiting.

        But once my son started walking around the house. He has destroyed 3 games and a controller. Not to mention the other stuff he has broken. But just to be on the safe side, I am going digital for now, maybe until he undestands not to mess wiith my stuff.

        • James

          3 games and a controller? lol. You’ll need to keep everything out of his reach, until he understands how great games are.

  • Anonymous

    I got COD Ghosts. Its slowly but surely installing. I’m sure the installation process is taking longer than that on the 360 because of the updated graphics but that’s just my guess of one of many problems that are probably causing the long wait. I wonder if the system having to update as soon as u first turn it on might be a problem as well? My XBOX ONE started making a weird noise while it was updating the system initially. It sounds like the processor maybe? Anyone else have the noise issue?

  • Gary moore

    Can anybody explain why call of duty ghosts is stuck at 4% on install not here for an argument just some friendly information thanks guys

  • Rick Murphy

    You know, it’s frustrating, but my disc drive works fine, so I will sit here as long as I have to no complaints here….”Xbox Watch TV”..boom.

  • chandler

    Bf4 and COD ghosts is not moving from 0%, how did they not see this issue??????????

  • Mike

    I got my DR3 to 100%, go to launch it and it says it needs an update, go to update it and it’s stuck at 96% i really dont want to cancel it because I would have to re download it. Any help??!

  • Stall

    I had the same issue but after 10 mins decided to disconnect from the internet. The game then installs quit quickly. The problem is that when you select install the xbox is actually only reading the licence on disc and downloading the game from the cloud. Disconnecting forces the box to install from disc.
    A simple patch could fix this issue.

  • Yeah…

    It took around 20-25 minutes to install Dead Rising 3 on mine.

    My brother installed NBA 2k14 and Ghosts on his, it took around 35-40 minutes for 2K14, and 20-30 minutes for Ghosts.

    It took 5-10 for Assassin’s Creed IV and Killzone to install on my ps4.

    Not sure what the issue is…

  • Mike

    Shit keeps freezing at 97%, it’s not like i can skip the updates and play offline but you absolutely need to do it. I honestly hope Microsoft patches this up.

  • Billy mcknight

    DISCONECT YOUR INTERNET AND DOWNLOAD YOUR DISKS AND QUIT PANNICING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • goon234

    sending xbox one back. ps4 it is

    • Mtfisther

      I agree. Garbage

  • Mike

    yeah i did but when you connect back to live it requires an update.

  • Frostwall

    Love my xbox one. i had ryse,ghosts,battlefield done in an hour. I got to the game install problem looked online and after 5 min found fix. Take game out. reset system to default redo setup. when setup complete disconnect xbox from internet. install games. then reconnect internet. I have heard instead of reseting to default you can hold power button for ten seconds but i didnt try it. There is a prob with a patch bug or live congestion that hits if a game isnt installed before patching. Good luck. Have fun.

  • Tyler Davis

    Haven’t had a problem yet. Sorry to hear some people are having issues :/ My ghosts installed in like 15 minutes..

    • Surging

      my ghosts was done in 10 seconds :) on ps4

      • Mtfisther

        Lol thats funny xbox one is trash

      • Tyler Davis

        Nice! Maybe MS can figure out a way to make discs install faster? I bet it’s because this is the first blue-ray player they’ve used so not really used to writing from them to HDD. Seeing as Sony is the owner of Blu-ray I would hope that they’re much better at using the tool :)

  • Ajay

    How come after i installed ryse i still need the disc even when I’m online?. I wouldn’t mind waiting for cod to load if I could play something In the meantime

  • Consider

  • Huntertf

    Okay so I disconnected from Xbox Live, then stopped the download, restarted my system, and reinstalledit. It went faster and got to about 56%, then it said it was ready to start. So I started it, then it said I had another download to download which had a size of 1221 MB or something. So I tried to sign back in online to download it, and when I did it went back to the home screen and was stuck at 56%. And now it has taken about 25 minutes to go from 56 to 57% while I am signed in to Xbox Live. Can anyone help me please?

  • Jay

    Started installing Ghosts at 1PM and its only at 4%. Its 730pm now. WTF.

  • Troy S

    It downloads patches before installing data from the disk. Xbox traffic is congested from everyone getting online so patch downloads are somewhat slow. If you disconnect from the internet for a second, load the game, then reconnect, it will download the patch in the background. As more people get their day one patches, this will resolve itself. Just remember the iPhone’s releases and it not being able to activate.

  • Benjamin Anson ツ

    Meanwhile it takes me about 10-15 minutes, many be less, to download 10% of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and then I’m able to play.

    I love the download/install and play feature.

  • One one one

    My ryse took 5 minutes to get to 3% then I was notified that I could start playing it, which I did. Super simple and fast guys. Love my xbox one so far.

  • Jose David Yacaman

    Just want to say thanks to Microsoft for using the consumers as their crash test dummies as usual. They do the same with all of the software launches

  • Jaysee

    Extremely dissapointed on launch

  • Jaysee

    has anyone had any luck trouble shooting the game download issue??

  • GK15

    This trick really does work. Just download the day one patch and then disconnect from the interwebs, restart your console and install all of your games offline for now.

    I guess it’s just a launch bug, but easily countered.

    • mathMaticks

      Glad to hear it’s an easy fix.. I feel pain for anyone with issues, . no matter what they play on.

      • GK15

        Same here dude.

        Nothing worse than getting a shiny new console and not being able to play it.

  • logik893

    Got my Day One XB1 a few hours ago… I am glad that I didnt get one of those busted units with the broken disc drives. I also ended up trading in my NBA2k14 on X360 and got the $10 upgrade to digitally download NBA2k14 for the XB1. And I decided to buy Forza 5 on a physical disc since the guy at the Gamestop said that MS’ servers are overloaded at this time, and it’s best to just install the disc offline first.

    Well, I turned on my console with no problems.The 500+mb update took about 12mins and then I went on to set up the kinect and other settings. Checked out some apps and finally decided to install NBA2k14. It took me about 16 minutes to be able to play the game without commentary, replays and other features of the game, but the good thing is that I was playing. And it took another 20mins to have the game fully installed and ready to play. So, it took about 35mins for the whole game to install. The game update which was downloading on the background while I was playing some exhibition games took about 14 minutes. I dont know what it was for, but it was a game update.

    Been playing NBA2k14 with no problems at all. I am opting to not play and install Forza till tomorrow since I dont want to be stuck waiting for the game to install and update while everyone is on the same servers.

    Overall, I am very happy with the console. The snap feature is friggin awesome, and I cant wait to use it in a few hours to play NBA2k and watch NBA games on snap mode. Now I am disappointed about the slow servers, especially since MS “added” the 300k extra servers. But who knows…. Hopefully everything will be running smoother tomorrow.

    • GK15

      Glad to hear you got yours man.

      I’m loving mine as well.

      • logik893

        What games did you end up getting?

        • GK15

          I got Ryse, BF4, AC4 and downloading KI now. I think we get a free character with the day one addition.

          • logik893

            How’s BF? I am still debating between BF and COD, problem is that most of my friends ready got COD for the xb1 or they’re planning t get it.

  • David Kane

    My initial update for the Xbox one is taking a very very long time. My Internet speed is a tested 85/35 so it’s not me. I’m hoping its just because the entire planet is doing this right now. Btw… I also have a PS4. Great console and very fast. I’ll see if the Xbox one is hopefully as smooth once this update completes.

  • AllShallFear

    The ps4 and xbone are the biggest PoS of consoles I’ve ever seen. Such a terrible launch

  • Govdubz

    I got home after work at 6:13pm. Set up the Xbox by 6:50pm. Turned it on after dinner at 7:23pm and am almost playing a game now but it’s 10:12pm. 97% dead rising 3 so far

  • Govdubz

    U can’t play while the game updates though @trevor

  • Govdubz

    So no one at Microsoft really seen this as a slow issue or as a problem at all?? My 360 seems faster…

  • Govdubz

    Guess what?!?! 10:33pm and I am playing :)

  • kid

    the fact that you can’t set up the Xbox, insert game disk and play within a reasonable amount of time and without going to the internet to troubleshoot is a problem; the irony of “day one” when you can’t actually play until “day one” plus X hours (still unknown), good thing i’m old enough to find it more comical than disturbing…freebie for me, giving away as a gift and getting a PS4 for myself…In the couple of hours I’ve been waiting to play I’ve had the opportunity to read the reviews of Xbox v PS4 – the PS4 is winning / has won in all categories…adios to Microsoft, stick with Apple and Sony (and Toyota). join the movement

  • chris

    That didn’t happen to me, I put in battlefield 4 and after five minutes it was at 9% which was the point where it let me play the game. I could only play the campaign at first but after playing the first to missions, the rest of the game was downloaded

  • Bud

    My call of duty has been downloading for 12 hours only on 50%

  • jason

    Dang this sux i still have not been able to play a game online i got battlefield4 tryed to download it and it was all the way to 99% then stop and cant get it to the 100% mark then i download ghost and it makes it and now i cant even play mutiplayer what the sh it i paid a lot money for this and cant even play it not cool get it together i have been a fan of the xbox for along time

  • jay dog

    Same here. Ryse son of rome at 2 percent! Counting 2 hours now… This is crazy. I am just so happy I didn’t pay for this garbage! It will only be used for blu-ray play. And maybe some youtube watch. Guess ps4 is were its at. Getting that soon… For now xbox 360 is king …

  • DrunkenWookie89

    Seriously for both PS4 and Xbox One installing a game is ridiculous….they have very fast blu ray drives that will allow the data off the disc to be read quite fast. I have BF4 and COD Ghosts installed but it was anoying gota wait for forza and fifa 14 now to install. But then again i have ADSL 2+ with telstra and its shit house! Im enjoying bf4 and cod ghosts but i want to download the new bf4 dlc and its taking a while….even though i got adsl2+ i can download 2-3 gig patches in an hour or hour and a half through my pc for games like rome. Hopefully MS sorts it out. And installing games is ridiculous for both platforms i would have rather had propriety 15-25 gig dvds with one or two discs instead of installing every fucking game of a blu ray disc

    • DrunkenWookie89

      for the blu ray drives part i meant ms and sony could have gotten better blu ray drives that can actually read the data very fast

  • Drunkenwookie89

    Forza 5 massive patch is a load of shit

  • billy

    That’s strange it displays in my dashboard how far its installed and it only took me 5 minutes for cod I downloaded bf4 it took me half an hour to download and 5 minutes to install all clearly being displayed on the dashboard I could play my games at fifteen percent but campaign only.

  • billy

    And people do blow things way out of proportion I got 3 games downloaded in an hour.

  • matty

    All games installed if its taking to long disconnect net reset xbox reinstall of line then go bk on online click play it will say needs installing again but it will start from 97% which the last 3% us a online update :) so it will take a bit longer

  • Paul

    I have the Xbox One Day One Console and am ver pleased with mine I have had no issues with it and my download times are very quick (I have fibre broadband), also one the download gets so far you can then play the game while it finishes the download…so far I haven’t spotted any issues, i have also tested the blueray drive with an audio cd, a dvd and a blueray disc and the drive seems great and pretty quiet too…(I hope that any of the few unfortunate broken PS4/Xbox One owners get their replacements very quick) i know that i would have been annoyed too if it happened to me..good luck to everyone and Xbox Live is Awesome by the way :)

  • Fedupxb1

    Cod ghosts installs, sometimes with or without connection. Then when you play disc it says you need to update the game. Then it goes back to installation 97% and does absolutely nothing. Ridiculous.

    • Mike

      The same thing happened to me with Dead Rising 3. It did eventually update but it took about 1-2 hours. Either way it’s ridiculous.

  • guinness70

    Maybe they are trying to make time consuming updates like the ps3. For people who want to turn the console in and play a new game, this is the worst. Let the buyers remorse begin.

    It’s sad that consoles used to be a way to avoid problems you get with PC gaming and they USED to be plug and play. Now you get all this crap, games that get released as borderline beta code, all the stupid online/server based junk that can’t handle the amount of people (really corporations…you guys want to push everyone to an online world yet your infrastructure can’t handle it….give it a rest!) and inferior performance to gaming on a PC. It’s why I am converting to PC gaming as I don’t need to deal with all this crap.

    I’m so glad I didn’t give in and buy a PS4 or XBO. Maybe down the line I’ll change my mind if/when both companies get a clue and sort things out but so far all these issues seem like a huge frustration.

      Anyhow it’s nice to see some of us have a brain and can think for ourselves by standing up to these cocksuckers at MS and not supporting their products and services again.

      Microsoft’s definition of success: Use the Xbox platform as trojan horse to promote MS’s other products and services… They don’t give a fuck about gaming as the while premise of the console itself was designed to be a jack of all trades and a master at none… pulling resources away from gaming due to their fucking stupid multimedia and kinect functions.

    i can say that,when it comes to new system releases, Nintendo is #1 as far as low to no failure rates. my nes,snes,Wii all worked out of the box and still do. When i bought Xbox 360 i got 3 DOA systems.ps3 i still have original fat 60 gig version with no problems.My ps4 worked perfect,all though amazons packaging scared me on how unprotected it was inside the big box.

    This Is bad. I mean come on i bought the xbox one to play and have fun I didn’t buy it to watch a percent to go up every single hour. I’m trying to download Ryse Son of Rome and it says ready to start at 4%. I don’t know what to do? start it or let the percent go up every hour. I hope they fix this as soon as possible or I might switch to Ps4.

  • ps4 dick riders

    Funny how these gay PS fans talk shit *clap *clap you finally have a console that is superior in one way

  • PISSED OFF

    I just paid 800 bucks for the console for my kids bday and this thing won’t install the games I bought with it. How can you charge that much for something that doesn’t work? Xbox, you suck ass.

  • duggan

  • parveen

    I’m on my 3rd Xbox one the first 2 were day ones and none of them will install my games ive tried disconnecting and it jus says queued immediately after you click install

  • dustin weber

    Disconnecting WiFi tht is

  • Tdognson

    The reason for install is fair enough but we should not need to wait and we should have been told of installation required! Very disappointed…

  • Tdognson

    Would also like to say that My Forza 5 Install only took about 48hrs lol and im not joking!

  • Eddie Sarphie

    If you open “My Games and Apps” during the installation, you CAN see exactly how far along the installation is… plus most games seem to be playable at about 30% installed.

    It’s definitely annoying though.

    500$ and after an hour it still hasent moved past 0% I’d say a refund is in line for this “next gen” console!

  • mainah1990

    Are people still having this problem I have been waiting for quite awhile for madden 25 and I have ghost ??????? What do I do

  • Marty

    Ryse: Son of rome is at 2% after nearly two hours, I know my internet is slow as fuck, but god damn xD

  • roy1ee

  • Just some regular guy

    Wow that argument down the page was awesome but sky pilot deff won(if he was being honest) both of you need to call your sponsors

    • Not A PC Gamer

      That Undesirable never won shit.. He speaks alien and perpetrates being a war veteran when he clearly wasn’t. Maybe you should quit wasting your time with other’s business eh?

  • ben

    It’s so slow 4 and ahalf hours to do 42% wtf xbox

  • Stuart Floody

    Installing thief on the xbox 4 hours and it’s at 40%. I’m going to sleep now

  • ahmed

    Its been 2 days but like 19 hours of playing with my new xbone titanfall edition and in that 19 hours i only have 39% of the game installed fml

  • gummy

    xbox is the worse console…. if i’d did known i get a ps4 instead

  • Neoplatonist

    I started installing Ryse 4 hours ago and still cannot play it. Gave up after 3.5 hours and decided to uninstall (it claimed it was installed for like an hour during which time I could not start up the game), unplug the internet, shut down and reinstall. Hope this works. I was really looking forward to this and instead I’m just so pissed off!

  • XBOX One Sucks

    “XBOX ONE Next-gen console!” more like “XBOX ONE Last-gen console!”

  • Jake

    Seriously, I bought Wolfenstein: The new order at 12:00am, it’s now almost 7pm and that shitty little green bar is at 9%. What. The. Fuck, get your shit together Microsoft

  • elchopchop

    total shit – I bought my console at 11am today with 3 games and by 9PM i’d managed to play on just one as the second one I tried has been installing for 7 hours and still isnt done. tomorrow the console will be returned and replaced with the PS4

  • eden

    GTA 5 has taken me 7 hours to get
    to 23%

  • Joe

    This was funny as fuck to read. Good work guys giving others such a laugh. Keep it up!

  • curvz2daleft

    Sped up the process of install by going offline,but now the updates are stuck around30% and ive been updating for about45min! Any ideas?

  • robert

    Killer instinct been installing 9 hours only at 56% , about to take the damn thing back and get a ps4 this is the stupidest crap, spent $400 dollars on a system to wait 24 hrs to play one game is just ludicrous.

  • Josh

    I bought a used Xbox one and when I downloaded my profile I notice there was 15 games in the “ready to install ” part all new games cod gta5 destiny dead rising 3 and more. So I downloaded them and they all work and now im confused ???
