Is it coming in a future update?

both consoles require game installation, because both consoles are way faster than bluray.

Not sure what PlayGo is, but some games do allow you to play as it's installing. Forza let me start playing after about 15% installed. Granted, if I wanted to do anything than stare at a menu I had to wait for it to then also install the race track, cars, etc which took about 10 more minutes.

Microsoft are constantly releasing updates for the system now, they'll spend them up in the future. I think CoD Ghosts is the only lengthy install i've personally experienced so far, but to delete that horrible game off my hard drive, it took like two seconds ;)

The Xbone does do that, just the PS4 does it WAY better. You can likely thank all the complaints about install times on the PS3 for why it's so good on the PS4. Microsoft likely just didn't put as much effort into it as people didn't really complain about install times on the 360.
The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

When installing the 40gb NBA 2k14, I was able to play a game of Spurs v. Heat. By the time I was done with that game it was fully installed. Can't remember if Fifa had something similar and I don't think DR3 had anything.
