XBOX ONE: Issues

Hey all.

So my brother was incredibly generous and bought me an XBOX One for Christmas. Holidays were crazy and I just got around to setting it up and have run into some issues/complaints on it. I hate to take issue as there are bigger things to complain about but my brother obviously paid quite a bit for it and it bothers me that it seems to lack where other consoles don't.

My issue is that I have had to update this thing 3 times before I've played a second of Halo 5 (the game my bro got for me). On top of the game and console updates, the system also informed me that the controller needs an update as well. I've never experienced such lengthy download times as well as so many of them at once.

Has anyone else had similar issues with the XBOX One?

Reason might be:

The model is one of the 1st gen releases. It's BIOS/OS needs all the "improvements" in the form of updates to enhance the performance.

Just like the PS4, there are a lot of updates plus, the game itself also updates itself. Given this is MS, there's like a ton of registering the game to your ISP account (done via those updates) and improving your console's performance etc etc.

Welcome to the future I guess 8-}

I was thinking about getting the newer Model 1TB (lower energy) version that is out in a few months time.

I would hope that they have fixed some of the "Updates" into the machine before they release the thing.

If I have one complaint that does bug me about Microsoft it is that they don't shout at the makers of call of Duty games for taking the mikey with the size of their updates and should be insisting they 1) Compress them more & 2) put the darn things on the disc so they don't need updating in the 1st pace.

I have the majority of my games on the system that I've installed having less total number of GB used than some of the Update of a COD game have - that is plain silly.

It is one of the things that is more likely to push me towards PC gaming eventually as if the Consoles keep insisting on me wasting data space on things that I don't need to then all advantages of Discs being the format in the 1st place is substantially reduced.

How on earth do they expect people to fit it all in a HDD when they are so slaphappy with the size of such updates and the number of them 1TB wouldn't even last me a year. then what - what am I supposed to do then ?

I don't even know if XBoxOne HDD are swappable or if backing the data up in some way effects its future usability in any detrimental way.

I've already heard horror stories about Updates & DLC tied to a specific console so it all only works on your replacement when signed in online - that is beyond daft. To me that just sounds like an excuse for Microsoft to go data farming more easily.

I guess that's why they made it so you can use any old USB 3.0 external HDD with your Xbox One now.

Thanks for the insight everyone. So far I've begun playing Halo 5 (campaign). It's awesome but now I just smirk when the console asks me to "update" my controller. For flips sake.
