My Xbox One X is wired and even I will see slow speeds like you mentioned on game updates. I will have one update go full speed 300mbs and then another crawl below 1mbs.   I assume there are different servers that get accessed for different games?  It has nothing to do with my connection.  I doubt it is your configuration either. 

Do you have any games running in the background? I've noticed if I don't 'quit' a game downloads happen at about 1/3 normal speed. When I quit all running apps (game, store, etc.) DL speeds pick back up.

Typically the first thing I do when I turn on my console is to check for game/app updates.  Any time there is an app update, the amount of bandwidth used to download those updates is almost exclusively measured in Kbps.  This is the case on my Xbox One X (wireless) and my Xbox One S (wired).

Is that Ghostbusters game easy? I’d like the nostalgia but I’m not up for a challenge:)


My 5 yr old and 3 yr old beat the game on Easy without any help if that can make a judgement

That makes sense re: servers. I was downloading 4k asset packs for Gears 4 and 5 and they were crawling. Initiated Fallout 76 (gf is obsessed with Skyrim and there are a lot of functional similarities) and it took a few minutes but then it was done in less than an hour (~80GB).

 

I'm tempted to run cables but since we rent, I can't run them through the walls, and the distance to the router to the living room is about 25-30 feet and there's no aesthetically pleasing way to do it. If we buy a house I plan on getting ethernet cables installed. 

I use these as a 'cornice' to run cable.  https://smile.amazon.../dp/B07GPFDL1K/  https://smile.amazon.../dp/B07WW22733/

 

It actually looks pretty nice.

Thanks!



Yeah I can see which of my movies are shareable. I just wasn’t sure if they only got to pick one movie or if they got access for the rest of the month.

I wonder how much more they could even slim it down The heatsink and fan are so big to get the cooling they need.


Well, if Microsoft can do a smaller machine with higher specs (Series X) I would think Sony could do the same if their R&D department actually get their heads out of their ass, use an actual vapor chamber and a better design solution, they did it with the original PS3 going to the Slim.

Oh well, thanks to the delay I can focus on Sakuna of rice and ruin and the new Hyrule warriors when they come out. Maybe even start and finish the new dlc for doom eternal.

"Most likely there will be many emotions and questions in your heads."

 

Seems like a lot of hubris and/or the fans are kind of sad.  This sentence is something you might say when telling someone about a death, break-up, job loss, etc.  I can't tell if they are full of themselves or know (or assume) that their fans are erratic, crybabies.

They are literally apologizing for their game being late. Not full of anything or high horses or fans being crybabies. If this is what the world is coming to that apologies are not even good enough I hate to see what’s next. Cut everyone some slack especially at this time FFS.

Can anyone recommend a good low cost VPN or one that has a legit free trial? I want to redeem a code from south of the border and need an actual VPN and not a browser based one.  Thanks!

The problem is the choice that Sony made with their GPU - instead of going wide like Microsoft and running at a moderate clock (52 CU @ 1.8 GHz), they decided to go narrow and tried to make up ground by running at a high/variable clock (36 CU @ <= 2.2 GHz).  The price of this is heat generation, and apparently the best cooling solution they could come up with is "Let's make this box really huge!"  I'm not expecting a better solution anytime soon since it's going to be quite a while before we see sub-7nm console chips.

Unfortunately this is where we've been for a while. I think it's important to keep perspective of the reality of the idiots in these situations. The number of people acting ridiculous, or sending threats of violence, are a tiny fraction of a percentage of the people following these games and teams. It's just that those people can be very loud, and if you get a threat it makes sense to focus on it.

CDPR is in a weird spot in the community. It has been anticipated for almost 8 years now, and in that time they've drawn all kinds of attention from all types of people for both good and bad reasons, and crunch and delays have been in the conversation for months now.

The vast majority of people are fine with waiting, even if we are a bit disappointed in a 4th delay.

Yes, if they have your XBOX set as their home XBOX. You should be able to play games that they redeem, even while offline.

 

My wife and I have our XBOX's set up like that. I know she can keep playing my games when we get disconnected from the internet, but my game stops and asks for permissions. 

Once we realized this worked with Game Pass also, PS4 became dead to us. Going forward I’m just buying digital of games we want to play together on Xbox as well since it’s a two-for-one purchase like you said. Now that GCU is dead, it makes even more sense as well. Really is a game changer, and I think once more people realize the value (especially couples) Sony is going to be in for a hell of a rude awakening.

Look, I'm just grateful for any news that isn't COVID, political or my state is on fire news. So bring on the whiny man babies complaining how they took weeks off for this "stupid game" and now are thinking about cancelling their preorder (they won't).

When I first turn on my Xbox the last game I was playing before I switched off is often still running. Only way I can tell is if I hit the Menu button on it in the Home menu and it gives me the option to Quit.

My son gave me his old graphics card and an SSD so finally have a decent running PC. Still won’t game on it much because I just prefer console but it’s good enough to give Flight Simulator a try.

So the game is 150 GB. Boot it up and it needs a 115 GB update.

Guess I should get used to it. I’m sure that’s how games on the Series X are going to roll.

This is a good elaboration on what I was saying about their statement.  You shouldn't have to deliver disappointing news about a video game with the same wording that people use to fire someone, tell someone their relative died, etc.  There is a generation or two that has too large a percentage of people that are extremists in their emotions, feelings, and selfishness.  Or at least they are good at portraying that.
