    Xbox One - Can you play a game from disc while another is updating?


    I am updating Call of Duty: Modern Warfare without a disc. While it is updating, can I play another game from disc that is already installed?

    Thanks.

    can you install one game while playing another

    @M Bierce

    You can't play a disc game while installing another disc game

    But you can play a disc game while another is downloading, play a download while installing a disc or play a download while installing another download.

    Just an additional note, it will slow down your update and it will take longer than normal.

    X Box One S games, downloadable or cartridge/disc

    Unless you plan on buying the soon to be released "Digital Edition" of the Xbox One S console, you can have both.

    A lot of games from large publishers are still sold on physical BluRay discs, that you insert into the console.

    But be aware, that the disc itself is just a "proof of purchase", as the console copies the game data from disc to it's internal hard drive. Usually, it has to download updates and game patches, if your console is connected online.

    Even with the game installed, you will have to insert the disc to prove ownership of the game.

    But every game you get on disc (and many indie-titles) can also be bought and downloaded digitally.

    With a digital game license, you also have the "advantage" if your family has two consoles (e.g. you have a console for yourself and your kids/siblings), you can buy a game once, and have one console share your games to everyone playing on that console,
    while you can go to another console and still play your games.

    Giving you the game twice, so you and another family member can play multiplayer with only one copy of the game, which would not be possible with one disc.

    Disc wont read worked yesterday...

    Sometimes it can be the disc, or your xbox. The simple way to find this out is to play another game on your xbox. If the disc works, then it's not your xbox. If it's the disc, then it's a scratch or a chip that has happened, or you laser burned your disc.
    Laser burning your disc happens by moving your xbox while the disc is in and the xbox is on, I've done this to a Battlefield 3 disc before. You can always clean the disc, blow some air into your xbox, and give it another shot. Otherwise, it's probably a damaged
    disc, in this case, you should just pick up another copy of the game. If you have a warranty on the disc, you can get a replacement for free.

    Hope this helps!

    Sincerely,

    Loco.
