But how big is it, and what’s the required internet speeds for said timeframe?
Microsoft’s Marc Whitten has revealed to IGN that Xbox One’s day one patch to reverse all the console’s former anti-consumer DRM features will only take 15 to 20 minutes to download, however the company didn’t reveal how big said patch will be, or the internet speeds needed to achieve the estimated timeframe.
“We are optimising Xbox One so that the day one update is as fast as possible,” Whitten said. “While we’re still finalising the details, we expect that the download will take between 15 and 20 minutes for most users.”
Still, if correct, 15-20 minutes isn’t bad at all.
