THe kids got “Fortnite” on the Xbox one a few weeks ago, they love it.
But it updated yesterday and took hours and hours, now it says it is installing and taking hours.
The boy is afraid that the skins or whatever he bought will be lost?

Can we do anything to speed it up?
Or what can be taking it so long?

What's a switch?
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Update files for fortnite can be quite large the time will just depend on your internet speed. Wired will be much faster than Wifi.

The skins will be kept once he signs into his epic games account. If its not installing it might be worth restarting thel xbox. The update file should be saved so you wont have to download it again

Long time lurker first time poster....
 
So I've just finishing studying for the last 2 years and now I'm gonna make up for lost time.
My old console XBOX is ancient...
 
What should I get to replace it ? Go Xbox or PS?
 
 
I do want to play RDR2 when it comes out...

Is it any good? Uusually I'm not too bothered by what PS Plus offers on occasion. Just Cause 3 was the best offer I got in last 12 months.

I think it's quality, you fly around the desert in a beast of a car attacking enemies and strongholds, it's great visually and simple to play.

I've been watching the new God of War on Twitch, it looks absolutely incredible. One of the few games that makes me want to invest in a PS4

Breath of the Wild is a masterpiece. I'd recommend you pick up Mario Odyssey also, either could have won game of the year. Mario Kart 8 is also brilliant value if you didn't have it on the WiiU. Few other ones to bear in mind;

Splatoon 2 - brilliant innovative shooter
Skyrim - If you haven't played it before definitely worth picking up
Bayonetta - excellent fast paced game
FIFA - Essentially portable FIFA 16, some people hate that it's hasn't got everything PS4 has but it's portability makes up for it imo
Rocket League - Great game really suited to the switch with quick pick up multiplayer games.

I really like it too, Adventure mode is a decent challenge and offers a bit of variety. Hopefully they broaden up the online experience in time.
