Microsoft has been unexpectedly in the background with update 2208 for the Xbox Series X included a small improvement: Installing a disc-based game for Xbox One eliminates the need to be online during installation. Previously, an internet connection was required to run a compatibility check. But this requirement has been dropped.
However, the fact remains that you need to be online to install disc-based games for the Xbox 360. Because the disc is really only used for control and the actual game is downloaded. According to Microsoft employees, it should be handled this way because the data from the drive cannot be used directly. That’s nothing new, it’s also been done on Xbox One when installing Xbox 360 titles.
Ultimately, however, it will also make sense to install most games for the Xbox One when you go online with the Series X: after all, you will mainly find patches that improve the game. There are also some games that you can install, but the data on the disc is incomplete. Then, for better or for worse, you should also restart the internet connection.
