Xbone shitness

Someone gave me a code for Gears 4 so I dusted off the xbone to give it a go. It hadn't been turned on in months so I expected a lengthy update and wasn't disappointed, left the console for 40 mins and finally it was unusable, onto the game download I thought, 55gb ouch! So I set it going and play my PS4 for a few hours...

Finally I go back to the xbone, ready for some Gears action. Oh wait Microsoft has kindly added a 'feature' that has turned the console off because there was no joypad input, the game is only 25% installed. That ended day 1.

Day 2 I let it download for a while longer, waggling the xbone joypad now and again while I play on the PS4. After an hour or so I take a look, the game is now 40% done but it says it can start. Finally some Gears action! Oh wait, I hit start and there is a 5gb mandatory patch before the game will start, that's a mandatory patch for single player content - non of that nonsense on ps4. I'm very frustrated by this point (patch for a game that is still downloading wtf?!). Fuck it I think and hit update, go back to PS4. Then the bone turns itself off again after a while cause I forgot to waggle the pad. End of day 2.

Day 3 is today. I turn it on and let the patch finish. The game is still only 50% done but it can start so here we go, finally! I hit start and the game loads woo!!! Oh wait once I get to the title screen the campaign is only 80% downloaded and will not start.


TLDR - Fuck you Microsoft. Fuck your shitty console in the fucking ass. I will stick to PS4 for the remainder of this gen. I paid nothing for this game and I still feel robbed.

I never start games before they are finished loading. I tried that with Wolfenstein on the PS and it was a mess. It said I could play the game, but the game crashed during the first level. Then I had to reboot the entire machine, restart the download, then play the game only to have the same thing happen again. Then i let the entire thing download, but that download was corrupt. I had to delete the entire game, then re-download it and wait for it to finish before playing.

It's not worth it.

That was a good read. Thanks for that. That sums up a lot of my xbox one experiences. Just getting frustrated trying to play a game to the point where I either just give up completely or by the time the game loads I have lost interest.

The PC version is no better. The PC version is 80 GB and now it has like a 6 or 7 GB patch file on top of that. I can't play the game any more - even in single player - because there isn't enough space left on the drive for the patch file. A game that is already almost twice as big as the console version is now even bigger.

I'm going to end up just uninstalling it. I could already use that space for 3 other games.

Did you buy the hardware? If so, somebody got bent over, and it wasn't MS. LOL@U.

All problems I've never experienced in the 3 years I've had an Xbox One. The biggest problem I've had was related to the quality of HDMI cables during initial setup. The cable between the xbox and tv somehow prevented audio on the TV. Swapped it with the cable box to xbox cable and haven't had a problem since.
