Xbox One Huge Day 1 Patch Woes Continues With Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

Microsoft’s Xbox One seems to be one console which usually needs a huge sized patch for most of its games on day 1. The two recent games that come to mind are Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark and Sniper Elite 3.

Sniper Elite 3 is going to have a day 1 patch weighing in at 10 GB. Similarly, the day 1 patch for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is going to be a big download, as confirmed by one user on Reddit.

The user, who got his copy for the Xbox One, shared this news regarding the size of the patch, which is about 9 GB in size. Wolfenstein: The New Order was another game on the Xbox One that launched with a big patch size , about 7 GB in total. The strange thing is that similar games on PS4 usually have less size for their day 1 patches compared to the Xbox One. This is not the case for every game but it is strange to see it happening for some of the odd titles like in the case of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark.


Sony’s PlayStation 4 is also notorious for huge patch sizes, but not to the same extent as an Xbox One. Infact Sony is trying to cut down on patch sizes as evident by the recent change in the way DC Universe Online updates the game, which should result in reduced patch size for the game.

What do you have to say to these day 1 patches on the Xbox One? Let us know in the comments below.
