Xbox One Takes Over A Minute To Cold Boot
A hardware test of the Xbox One on Eurogamer discovered that the Xbox One takes a whopping 1 minute, 8 seconds to do a cold start. While the standby turn on is a much more reasonable 18 seconds, thanks to the â€œalways onâ€ feature, 1:08 is borderline ridiculous considering the 5 year old laptop Iâ€™m typing on takes about 30 seconds to boot.
While it’s hard to reason why it takes a new piece of hardware that long to boot, future updates to the OS and its interfaces could speed up the process. Besides, I see no point in turning off the console, since isn’t one of the coolest features of the Xbox One is being able to walk into your living room and say â€œXbox Onâ€ (which is something you canâ€™t do when the system is fully shutdown)? So while I think 1 minute, 8 seconds is complete insanity, it’s not the end of the world.
