Similar to the PS4, the Xbox One will allow users to download games and immediately start playing them. Confirmed by Polygon earlier today, The Xbox One won’t waste users time by making them wait for downloads.
This was one of the key features that the PS4 had announced back in February. A future where titles can be streamed while downloading isn’t something to be afraid of, either.
In addition to this, the Xbox One also allows users to install disc-based games and play them at the same time. Microsoft had previously attempted this with the PC Port of Halo 2, so it’s nice to see a return to the idea.
