I could see 500 mbs taking a while on a congested service with millions trying to connect at once.

Good. I was expecting worse.

It's crazy how much smaller these updates are compared to the Wii U, especially since they are pushing (apparently) much more contact out with them.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was another update that they'll publish before launch, I am sure they are still working

Surprised at the size. Glad both Sony and MS know to keep the day 1 updates small. I bet game patches will be far larger than the firmware updates.

That's not bad. So many people put so much stock into that 1.5GB size. Where did that even come from?

That's a much better size than I expected

Still going to be congestion problems at launch

Hopefully they allow downloading to a USB

Are we all late to the party and the butts of a cruel joke?

First, some people start to get Xbox One's delivered to them, now the day ONE patch is out...

I'm kidding.

Not bad, but I can imagine it will be brutal on launch day. Hopefully their servers will handle the traffic.

That Xbox that that one guy got early from Target has now went up in value many, many times now that this update is out. $$$ that someone is going to drop to have a two week head start with the UI and media stuff. Probably no games though...

So did Nintendo win the day one file size patch contest with the Wii U? Wasn't it like a gig or so?
I remember it being like 5 GB. Hope I'm not tripping. I have no idea why Wii U's patch was so bloated(no wonder the OS is still kinda slow), or why XB1's relatively small(well, this is MS's forte, afterall). Surely, vastly different approaches in play here.

Could this just be another developer update? Like the actual update will come later? Cause 500 mb is not bad at all. What was ps4's? I think around the same size.

Nevermind disregard I am dumb. Thats not a debug lol.

Well it is possible this is a pre-release dev update that doesn't have all the stuff the "real" day one patch will. Who knows?

Lucky guy either way.

There's not going to be millions of XB1 installing the update at the same time. They will be staggered depending on what time zone you are in.

And if I HAD to trust anyone's servers to not crash, it would have be MS. 500mb normally takes a few minutes for me.
