Xbox One Also Needs Day One Patch Like PS4 to Function
Sony’s PlayStation 4 required a 300MB day oneupdate to start proper functioning. And unfortunately the same is the case with the Xbox One. The fact is if you don’t download the critical patch you will have shelled out $500 for nothing. Even the creators of the gamingdevice at Microsoft acknowledge this proviso.
Microsoft senior director of product management Albert Penello said, "Functionally, you will be able to do very little without taking the day one update," told Engadget in a recent interview. Unless you get the gadget updated, you won’t have anything to enjoy on the platform. It’s an ugly truth but there you have it. If you were to justbuy the Xbox One and start manipulating it there will be zilch in the way of games or entertainment. The patch is a necessary evil that must be tolerated if you want to have fun.
When Penello was asked that what gamers can do without that update on Xbox One, he said, "Nothing. You need the Day One update." This crutch of sorts is a major hurdle in the way of customer convenience.
After so many policy transformations, Microsoft has announced that a day one patch is indispensable for the Xbox One. This isn’t much of a shock. In a way, people were expecting this. The thing is that the current system contains the past version and so desperately needs renewal. There is little in the way of info from Microsoft on the size of the patch or the duration it will take to be uploaded on the device.
Meanwhile, the PS4 will require a similar 300 Megabyte patch. It will enable many features on Sony’s gizmo. This policy of installing patches is an irritation and annoyance. It shouldn’t be present, but it is so there’s no helping it.
