Game Updates For Xbox One X Are Massive And May Deter Many From Buying The Console

Xbox One


The Xbox One X is undoubtedly going to be one of the hottest selling items come this holidays.

However there is one potential problem, or call it a oversight which may deter a potential buyer from buying a Xbox One X. Which is the size of the games, with many of the games such as Quantum Break having a file size of 100GB . That’s not the only game though which has a file size above 100GB. One of the most popular Xbox One exclusive Gears Of War 4 also has a file size which reaches 100 GB.

Xbox One X Games File Size

There are a number of other games as well which have a “burgeoning” file size and hence I don’t think its entirely feasible to have so many games which touch the 100 GB mark. Considering the size of the Xbox One X HDD is 1TB which means that 4K updates will take up most of the space . Hence the logical assumption that we can make is the fact that most gamers who are playing in 4K will have to attach an external hard drive to their console.

Xbox One X Update Downloads Wait Time

However perhaps the biggest problems will be faced by those who have a painfully slow to an average internet connection. Downloading large updates on day one will take a lot of time and will undoubtedly test the patience of a number of individuals.

Compared to the Xbox One, Xbox One X games will take up an estimated 30% more space on your console , and it is something that the developers should definitely look at for the future.

As it stands Xbox One X may have the best visual outputs but it is going to need a hell of a lot of space for all it’s enhanced games.
