If you're putting your game on Steam, they use a system based on Perforce's Source Control solution. So the user only downloads what's new or different from what they have.
So if it's a 99999999 TB game, and you only changed a sound file for a patch. The user will might only have to download the 2mb of the audio file + whatever was changed in code. So the patch might be a 5mb patch.
On Mobile you DO have to download the whole thing, unless you implement your own custom solution.
Not sure how it works on Consoles to be honest. Would be insane to have to download the whole thing though, I hope they use a similar source-control type solution.
