Microsoft Says Pre-Loading For Downloadable Games Still Planned

#1Dev445Posted 5/2/2014 5:45:22 AM
Microsoft spokesperson Major Nelson says that the company is still working on pre-loading for digitally downloaded Xbox One games.

On a Reddit thread entitled "Xbox One Needs Pre-Loading Feature!", Nelson logged and wrote, "All I can say right now is that yes, we want this feature as well." When asked abotu a timeframe he declined to give specifics.

There had been indications that game pre-loading was going to be available for Titanfall, but that feature never materialized.

Sony recently confirmed that pre-loading for PlayStation 4 will be added to the console's firmware in an upcoming system update.

Would be even better if the digital games were cheaper than the retail copies, until then I don't see the point in going digital.

It is nice that the Xbox One is getting this feature, even if it's only sometime in the future.

But I thought the PS4 already had it ?

I'm sorry but it bothers me so damn much that the company that wanted to go digital from the start is behind the competition in having digital benefits and options. I like my X1 but this is getting ridiculous. Saying they want something doesn't mean we'll get it or at least not anytime soon

could this have something to do with that happened to GTA5? Maybe its not MS and Sony that put the stop on the preloading. maybe its the publishers?
