    Who's Gone Fully Digital with Xbox One/S?

    I am considering digital. I have 40Mbps connection can upgrade to 76MBps if needed. I like the ability to switch between games instantly without disc. I got the Xbox One S and plugged in a external 2TB hard drive. So space should not be a problem.

    One thing I dislike about game disc on Xbox One/S is the installation time;
    1. Installation from disc (offline at first) for a 45GB game takes around 30~40 minutes.
    2. Then the update for the game that can be anywhere over 5GB (for the AAA titles or first party).
    With that I personally think it's easier just to buy a game digitally and put it on download (wired straight from router).

    If going digital will it download and install the game with the latest update included or does do the same method as the disc? (game downloaded then additional update need be run).

    What's your thoughts?

    ive gone fully digital on my xbox s 2tb

    I would, but I don't want to pay full (higher than retail) price to essentially rent games that will become completely useless whenever the servers of said corporation have shut down.

    even better when you game share

    game share or buy from a new market, just have good internet and buy a week in advance

    Not full but mostly digital, and now play anywhere is an amazing thing too, forza horizon 3 on Xbox and PC ftw!

    play anywhere digital. Do you get two set of codes? One for Xbox and one for PC?

    it is good just loading games without changing disc but pricing is still to high imo

    If you're paying higher than retail for digital games, you're xboxing wrong.

    Get a gameshare mate, halves the cost right out the gate.
