This Xbox Download Glitch Is Becoming Increasingly Common

If you've found that you've run into an issue where your Xbox game continues downloading or updating beyond the intended download size, you're not alone. We've noticed a fair few reports of this happening in recent weeks.

Why is it happening? We're not 100% sure. It might just be a visual bug, as some Xbox users are suggesting that it will eventually complete even despite what it says, but it's a mystery why it's becoming more common at the moment:

We've had this happen to us as well here at Pure Xbox, but fortunately it wasn't too late in the download, so we just power cycled the console (by going to Settings and then Restart) and tried it again — and then the bug just went away.

Instances of this are still fairly isolated for now so it's not exactly the biggest issue in the world, but if you're working with limited bandwidth or a particularly slow connection, it's a very irritating glitch when it pops up.

Let's hope Team Xbox can find a way to make it a thing of the past in the near future.
