    UPDATES


    I think two HUGE updates should be to make the system backwards compatible and make it be able to read external hard drives so i can watch movies on it. The 360 did this near flawlessly.

  4. UPDATES

    External hard drives are planned to be added in an update at a later date if I recall correctly. As for backwards compatibility I don't know but either way it's not a very big deal for me. I also read in some article about a study that was taken on how often
    people play games from the previous generation and the number was too small to really be worth making the console backwards compatible. Right now it might seem like a big deal since there aren't very many games for the new generation of console gaming but
    in say like 3 or 4 years, how many people are really going to be going back to play games like, for example, far cry 3. And if people really wanted to do that it wouldn't be a very big deal to pick up a last gen console. You can get an original refurbished
    xbox from gamestop for $50 which is less than the cost for a current gen game and the 360 price will probably greatly drop over the next few years.

    I think you have very little idea as to how electronics work if you think a couple updates will make this backwards compatible they are Devs with key boards and set hardware not friggen magical beings with wands to make your wishes come true. The external
    HDD support was announced months ago, shouldn't be long now.

    Well, the 360 got those emulating profile-things that they used to make many original Xbox games work with the 360. It would probably be the same thing now, I don't really expect it to come nor really even care (and I sure hope they prioritize the manpower
    on more important things now).

    1: The external hard drive update is coming, we dont know when, but it is coming.

    -

    2: Backwards compatibility is not something that is possible on the current archictecture without emulation, and getting games to run on emulators is alot of work. The only people that will code the emulators is Microsoft themselves, and I think they have
    more important things to do. Plus they dont really work as people expect, look at the 360's emualtion of the original Xbox, some of the games worked perfectly, but alot of them had sounds problems etc.

    -

    The only other way to get backwards compatability is through streaming, but that also brings problems, how fast you internet is, how far away the servers are etc.

    -

    Microsoft are apparantley working on a game streaming service, but I wouldnt count on anything before 2015, they kind of have their hands full getting the Xbox One up too scratch.

    Me too every 2 days. And I to called support and got no answers. I am part of the preview program so maybe there is a problem there idk? But getting annoying. Though
    Yes, preview is the problem, but if you want to quit preview, you have to wipe your Xbox and if you have some hundred gigs thats a pain. Microsoft should first give explicit info that if you join preview you get updates all the time and also inform that
    you will lose everything on your box if you quit preview. The option to just stop preview without wiping should ofcourse be a part of this deal but thats to much service I guess......

    Kids was gonna watch their favoritetvshow now, but they cant cause its the daily halfanhour stupid update..... What where you thinking on this one Ms? Can it be more annoying?

    new question guys.....sry for the long pause.....XBOX ONE PAPER WEIGHT FOR SALE.....CHEEEEP!!!!!!! ok since my 3 games from 2000 the ones that havent crashed since i first turned on the xbox.....the really secure ones.....ok the question is how to delete
    the updates/....which have taken up my ava hdd space on my xbox????and can this be done w/o deleting any of the game info? thanks.

    the updates dont really take any space, they replace files, as for the hdd space being used, after format and system reserved space is taken into account you have approx 340gb of space available for game storage.

    If you have say call of duty ww2 installed thats approx 80gb or more then halo 5 thats over 100gb in size.

    games these days take a huge amount of space, nothing you do will give you more free space without deleting existing games.

    what games do you have installed.

    Hi David,

    The updates are actully important. Sometimes they will be bug fixes to stop crashes and other problems, Sometimes they will be security updates and some will add new features to make your gaming experience better.

    I understand the frustration at turning on the xbox for a quick gaming session and been faced with an update instead, ive done this before also. But they are for the best otherwise you could be here reporting you cant play on your xbox because of constant
    crashes instead.

    As for filling your storage i would recommend buying a external storage. Unfortunately there isnt a single storage device big enough to fit the vast games xbox has available so the only option is to remove games or invest in a external storage device.

    I hope this answered your question david.
