  2. Update too long

    The update is taking long depending on the download speed that you have

    Scrolling down on this page support.xbox.com/xbox-one/networking/troubleshoot-slow-game-or-app-downloads-on-xbox-one allows you to see how long the full game update would take to download, approximately

    Xbox One not taking my full download speed?

    Where are you finding out your console's download speed? If in the console's Settings, beware it reports in MB/s, not Mbps (which your ISP uses). So if it was 1-point-something (eg 1.6MB/s) then it's not too far off your actual download speed.

    Also, beware that for many of the past 12 hours there was an Xbox Live issue that was causing issues with downloads on Xbox One, which could have prevented your game from downloading as quickly as it should have been. I would suggest power cycling your console
    (and turning off and on your router) which should clear out any lingering issues. You shouldn't lose any download progress by doing this; I have done this on occasion myself to speed up downloads.

    The Xbox Store really need a "download all free DLC" button.

    It really does because it takes way to long to select one by one and if your xbox is slow it makes it worst so i agree it needs a full download.

    Question: How many hours will it take for the downloads for Xbox One?

    depends on your DL speed, I think the servers will be far better on Xbox One since they are made for more cloud orientated things.

    On steam it takes me around 30 minutes to download an 8GB file, so I hope for the same on Xbox One, as it takes me about an hour to download a 5GB file on Xbox 360.

    (I use an ethernet cable to get my full internet speed, Xbox One i'll probably use the built in wireless so I bet I only get 40Mbp/s down speed instead of the full 80 I get usually)

    Can't play and re-download Sonic anymore

    Have you tried to unlock the game using the in-game menus. It should take you back to the download link of the game, just re-download it. It might be the game waiting for it to see that you downloaded the full version while playing it.

    I had to do this for one of my games in the past after moving to a new Xbox.
