    No problems here, but I have noticed that installations do seem to take longer than for the Xbox 360.

    About the installations, people are saying that it's also downloading the day one updates for said games at the same time. Not to mention the games are HUGE in comparison to most 360 games.

    Basically, the patch will download before the main game starts installing. Since there's no way (that I've found) of seeing the progress of downloads, the "installing" phase stays at 0% for quite some time. The Xbox will then start installing from the disk. You'll get a "ready for play" at the point where you can start off. Come to think of it, Ryse installed a lot quicker than Forza did..

    If you think downloading is bad, I was able to play Forza 5 after 13%... Only took a few minutes before I was playing.

    No issues for me in Michigan or for a friend with his in Texas so far.

    BF4 Is a little 'misleading' in its installation. You can start accessing the 'game' at 10%, but you can't actually play until the campaign fully loads which takes a few more minutes.

    I believe the bluray drive is slower in the XBOX One than the DVD drive in the 360 is...

    After reading the iFixit teardown, I can't help but think about what I'd do if I had this issue. I'd be tempted to just buy a new Blu-Ray drive at the local computer place and try it, but I imagine it wouldn't end well, haha.

    I guess the fact it's slot loading might make replacing it yourself a tad harder? I don't know if it really would, but it seems more complicated than the usual tray-loading drive.

    Reason for this is quite simple. In Ryse the game pretty much knows exactly where you will start playing the game - from the first "level" of the campaign. I guess it's possible for someone to rather opt to start out with the arena/co-op thingie, but most will just play the story. So it can easily install everything required for the first level.

    Forza on the other hand, I guess you are quite likely to start playing it on a random track driving a random car, so it needs more stuff installed cos I don't see Forza (as opposed to Ryse) have a very likely "starting point".

    Here's hoping mine is fine, seeing as it's replacing my Blu-ray player.

    Explain. If I have an xbox and an Xbox game, an actual disc, do I need to install it to get it to play?

    I have a day one edition console and I usually have to insert a game disc in a number of times for it to read.
