Firstly I have a 100/40 Mb connection which is working fine. Location Sydney Australia.
I checked xbox lives status and all is good and I’m on a wired connection.
When I first setup the console it took nearly an hour of having a white spinning circle before I got to the dashboard.
I can’t download any of the apps in the store. It’s taking nearly 30 mins just to check for any game updates if it works at all.
The watch dogs update(38Gb) took over 10 hours to download.
I’ve still got another 200 odd GB to download in game updates and currently I’m get 250 Kb/s download from Microsoft.
Other issues I’ve come across:
DTS doesn’t work at all it reverts back to dolby digital. (This worked fine on my one X)
Randomly the console changes from 4K to 1080p and your can’t change it back to 4k without a reset.
The reset console option doesn’t work from the settings menu or controller, the screen goes blank and it hangs.
Only way to reset the console is holding down power button for 10 secs to do hard reset.
Didn’t make any difference. I only tried a couple of small games because there is a ton of updates to games. After 12 hours I just turned it off and have them download in the background. So far I’m disappointed in the console.
The download speeds have been mixed for me today. On One X I never often got at 200Mbps but now I do, much more often, that’s good.
But it can still go from 200 to 12 in an instant, maybe it’s because of how busy the servers are. The game was almost done downloading at 90% and then the speed went down drastically and out of the blue it went back to 200 again.
But if it could just stick at 200 that be great. My overall speed is 250 but I never had that with Xbox yet.
AC Valhalla has only downloaded 2.84 Gb in 8 hours. Currently downloading at 950 K.
I might get to try it next year at this rate.
I’m finding my console itself a slow as shit regardless of the network conditions.
Just checking my queue can take 3 mins plus to show up or checking your storage is taking mins to show up.
Not for me, everything downloaded super fast, the console updated its firmware in seconds. Downloaded a couple of games and they were very fast. I certainly remember taking a long time downloading and installing games & apps on XOX. Loved that it took just a couple of minute to set up the console from the App, and it copied over my saved settings. Only work was putting back various passwords for Apps (was doing this whilst pulling down couple of games).
