Try doing this without connecting to the Internet. It may be your Xbox sees that your internet connection is quicker than HDD speed.
Most physical discs should be playable with no internet connection unless the box specifically says internet connection is required.
Obviously day 1 patches require Internet. A game unplayable without a day 1 patch is extremely bad practice such as Cyberpunk.
The base game should be playable without Internet. Switch cartridges have lower storage size (32GB).
Nope. Some of the best selling consoles in India sold like 100k. You need to educate yourself on living cost.
The avg salary in India is $400 a month. The US equivalent would be a game console costing nearly $5000.
I have no idea what game boxes say about it, I stopped buying physical copies late in the 360 era. What I know is that there are a growing number of games that won't fit on a single disc, and that developers would rather have you download the rest of the game rather than including multiple discs.
Switch cartridges can go higher, or multiple cartridges could be included in the box. But both are more costly and, again, developers would rather just make you download the rest of the game. Did you watch the video I linked to? Some Switch cartridges are little more than a dongle for a streamed copy of the game.
I didn't say past sales in India were proof of this being a good strategy, I said even a small increase relative to India's population could move the needle a lot. No need to be rude. And surely inviting this discussion in a forum like this *is* me trying to educate myself, by putting my thoughts out there and inviting comment? Sheesh.
And average salary can be very deceptive. The average salary in the U.S. is really high, but that's exaggerated because they have, last I checked, 630 billionaires (and untold thousands of millionaires) pulling up the average. It sounds like you're talking "mean", but I think "median" or "mode" would be a better way of expressing real world salaries in a country. That said, I appreciate your point, and I agree. I don't expect hundreds of millions of game consoles to be sold in India this generation.
