    So after some messing around, i finally managed to get my copy of the master chief collection.
    Now, the results were as bad as i'd feared - 60gb install with a 15gb update.

    But this isn't about that. Oh, no. See, this is about a nice little 'feature' that microsoft include for when you want to install the game from your disc, where it tries to fucking download the goddamn update while this is occurring.
    Which means when MY FUCKING INSTALL TOOK 25 MINUTES TO GO FROM 2% to 3% after i took out and reinserted the disc 400 times and restarted the console 200 times and got ready to snap the shit, after all this time it was because those useless fucking morons at microsoft decided to make the update time part of the install time.
    Which means, if you've already started the install, you need to CANCEL it, so it uninstalls what it's already done, click the 'go offline' shit, RESTART THE CONSOLE, afterwhich you can FINALLY install your fucking game with any sense of speed.

    Now, on the upside of all of this, i found out xbox one controllers are actually built really solidly. The punches would've snapped a PS3/4 controller in half.

    I feel like all of your bitching would be solved if you moved to a first world country that doesn't have shitty internet with data caps.

    I'm all-digital on XBO now, but since launch it's been a well-known strategy to take your console offline before installing a game off disc. Otherwise the xbox prioritizes the updates/patches and makes you suffer through a long progress bar.

    Honestly, if you have bad Internet and can't be "always online", XBO probably isn't the console for you.

    Oh so hey, you wanted to cancel that massive game update so you can just play the game you spent the last 30 minutes installing?
    Sure thing bro, just delete all the fucking installation data and reinstall it all again then go offline so the update stops.
    What? Download the update in the background while you play the game?
    AHAHAHAH good joke


    Can anyone explain to me WHY the xbones menu is the clunkiest, most useless fucking piece of shit ever created by man?
    I hate this goddamn console so fucking much i'm tempted to buy another PS4 just to drive their bloody sales up in the vain hope it'll cause developers to stop making exclusives for this green turd
