Xbox One digital games pre-loading still planned

Microsoft remains keen to introduce support for pre-loading digital games onXbox One.

Responding to calls for the feature to be introduced on Microsoft’s new console,Xbox Livedirector of programming Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hyrb said onReddit: “All I can say right now is that yes, we want this feature as well.”

Former Xbox exec Mark Whittensaidin September 2013 that the feature would be supported on Xbox One in the future, but that it wouldn’t be ready for the console’s November launch.

The most recentPS4 update, released on Wednesday, introduced automatic downloading for pre-ordered games, meaning they’re ready to play as soon as the title launches.
