Microsoft keen on preloading feature for Xbox One


Microsoft's Major Nelson says that the firm is keen to have a preloading feature, much like the one that PS4 now has thanks to the release of firmware 1.70.



Speaking on Reddit in response to the matter, Nelson said, "All I can say right now is that yes, we want this feature as well."

Former Xbox exec Mark Whitten said previously that the feature would be supported on Xbox One in the future, although didn't say when.

In the meantime, PS4 owners can now enjoy the ability to download pre-ordered titles ahead of their release, although they still can't gift games, which would be one of my most requested features.

What would you like to see in future updates for both consoles?

Ultimately I would love to see Xplay. So that PS4 & XB1 players can team up for the likes of Destiny

I know it'll never happen, would be cool though. I'm calling Morpheus @ £250. If it's good with enough software, I would probably go to that. Hopefully I will get to try it out at EGX London

Yeah i think its gonna be way more than £250 when you got that Yoshi bloke saying he hopes to sell it for less than a £1000.

I am interested in the Morpheus (It is sexy as hell) but odds are that it will be a closed platform & just like that I'm swinging towards the Rift

I cant wait for Morpheus, if plenty of games alow it ill be getting it for certain, but as its just a screen in there i bet sony will want most of thier games to be played on it

Once they do digital pre ordering and pre loading the should also include pre order extras like what the shops do but for digital and prices should be at least £10 cheaper on aaa games then those on disc, if all these thing were done then digital would be decent.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
