PS5 and Xbox Series X warning: Gamers face frustrating issue Sony and Microsoft can’t fix


Of course, if you are prepared to pay a premium and have access in your street you will find firms such as BT and Virgin offering 1Gbps downloads which would beam the same game to your console in around seven minutes.

Getting a good connection is clearly going to be vital for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners and, unsurprisingly, one supplier is jumping on the bandwagon with research suggesting gamers are set for a torrid time.

Zen internet says that 33 percent of gamers are spending nearly 40 hours a year waiting for weekly game updates to download.

And nearly four in 10 said poor internet performance is likely to affect their purchasing decisions for the new consoles

94 per cent of gamers surveyed by Zen revealed that they have downloaded a software update for a game, and only 22 per cent preferring to game offline. That means connectivity is now a huge part of the gaming world, but poor performance is causing issues. Nearly four in 10 (38 percent) frustrated gamers have admitted to shouting at their routers when gaming online, ahead of storming out of a room (21percent) and calling their internet provider (18 percent).
