Day One Patches: The Game Time Question of the Week


As online updates have become more and more prevalent, so have Day One patches. Whether the patch is for a specific game or for a system itself, there is a greater chance of having to get an update prior to use than not.


Far Cry 4 (PC) from Ubisoft received fixes in 24 general categories on its release date according to Ubisoft's official blog.

Assassin's Creed Unity, also from Ubisoft had a Day One patch correcting everything from animations to HUDs and more that was a hefty 900MB.

Behind the mask,
a broken man...game
That didn't even hold a candle to the XBox One's darling Halo: The Master Chief Collection, whose patch exceeds 15GB. Details on everything that 343 Industries had to fix can be found HERE.

The Game Time Question(s) of the week is this:

Are "Day One Patches" a mere nuisance or something greater to you? Have they influenced your game/system purchase habits in any way? Would delayed launches better or worse than these patches?
