Windows 10 Takes Up 1.5 GB on Xbox One

That’s one big update.

Xbox One Streaming to Windows 10

The New Xbox Experience powered by Windows 10, which launches this November for everyone, apparently takes up a whopping 1.5GB of your hard drive space, VG247 Italy reports. This makes it the biggest update for any game system ever yet.

It makes sense, too- the New Xbox Experience completely and thoroughly revamps the Xbox One UI, basing it off of Microsoft’s just launched Windows 10, in an attempt to address a lot of longstanding issues with the Xbox One interface. Early impressions from the beta have been positive, and the UI has been praised for being quick and far less obtuse than its predecessor. It’s essentially an all new OS rewrite- so it makes sense that it would be big.

Xbox One consoles ship with at least 500GB of on board storage, so there ideally shouldn’t be any issues with having enough space to install this- but still, if you have way too many games installed, maybe now would be a good time to do some spring cleaning.

    I’m in the Xbox preview and part of the new Xbox experience. I can tell ya, update we got a few days ago was around 4.2GB! That was after receiving the 1.5GB update.

    Its coming along nicely. A few bugsbugs, but will get hammered out before public release. 🙂

    So fast and streamlined. Def has the Windows 10 feeling.

      Completely off topic. I’m assuming you posted from your phone mine doubles up like yours did with the bugsbugs too.
      What OS and keyboard are you using if you don’t mind me asking

    1.5GB is the size of a medium/small sized indie game.

    In other words, it’s a meaningless amount of space.

    Its great so far.


    I have the new Xbox One Windows 10 dashboard it’s much faster and less cluttered than the current Xbox One dashboard it has some bugs but that’s to be expected as it is a beta after all

    How is 1.5 GB big when a pcinstall takes 20 on a 64 bit system. It’s also a whole new OS and kernel so its not a bother but I’m sure we’ll see ps fand bashing this too in some fanatical way.
