Microsoft’s screw-ups with the Windows 10 Store are well documented, yet few have made me chuckle quite as much as Microsoft pushing an absolutely ginormous 250GB update for Gears of War 4.

This comes via NeoGAFer ‘Gowans’, who booted up the Windows Store to find it was already 147.6GB through its 248.5GB patching process.


I can only assume this is one huge error on Microsoft’s part as the base game is ‘only’ around 50GB. Something has gone seriously wrong here for a 248.5GB update to be burning down the pipes.

A word of warning then if your ISP happens to have a cap on download limits - check the Windows 10 Store and make sure the largest patch of all time isn't downloading in the background.

We'll have to do a bit of digging around to find out whether this is a problem affecting everyone or just restricted to this one user. Any Gears of War 4 owners on GD noticed this patch downloading? Let us know below!
