I've experienced the same issue tonight as well (after several attempts). Running 2010 MBP, ML 10.8.2.
As an FYI to others, I've completely uninstalled the 'older' version of Xcode that I had thinking that might be the problem. It's not. Good thing for backups.
Anyone else experiencing this?

I am also experiencing this issue. This is the first time that I've tried to install xcode on my computer, so there should not be any issues with a previous install.
I am taking a programming class and my first program is due in 2 days. A quick solution to this problem would be appreciated!

After several attempts, the installation has finally succeded. I didn't change anything nor tried anything different.
Nevertheless, I would still like to know what the problem is and how to solve it, because I don't want this to happen every time that I want to update Xcode.

I was not able to get the App Store install to work. Instead, I registered as an Apple developer (free) and downloaded the app from: https://developer.apple.com/downloads/index.action
Xcode installed and runs just fine. I assume that I can update Xcode in a similar way in the future.

Same happening to me. I cannot complete Xcode installation because of a crash.
I cannot even run old Xcode, I get an alert about the program being upgraded.
I did a try to the direct installation via .dmg, but it ends up the same.
I suppose I am going to restore previous back up.

Same crash here on my Retina MacBook Pro. In attempting to update Xcode 4.5 to 4.6, it installed the initial update. I ran it and it informed me that it had a few components to update. It started to do that, then abruptly rebooted the machine with a kernel fault. I just tried deleting Xcode and reinstalling from the App Store; it again crashed the computer in the process of installing. It gave me crash reports to submit to Apple, which I did, for what that's worth.
