ps4 kind of has this I re downloaded uncharted 4 to try new surviival and chose mp first and paused after mp finished but you cant play it without it still downloading so I have to keep pausing the download

Completely different. This new Xbox tech is a system implementation feature, it gives developers an option to let gamers download parts of the game like Single Player, Multiplayer, Audio, Assets etc to be played on Xbox One

Which will save a lot of space for games with multiple languages for audio.

Am I missing something, it is just slightly different with what they can do now. Many games let you decide if you want to install MP or SP first letting you leaving one out really isn't going to change much for the install size since they use the same assets...Leaving say voice acting out for single player will cut down on a small amount of space but it won't be anything crazy. All this will still have to been at the software level.

Microsoft truly is the company that continues to innovate.

I just wish they would let me pre-order it lol.

Same....had an opportunity to pre-order the limited edition version but I held back. Regretting that now lol

That blows, hopefully you get another chance. I never have pre ordered a system from someplace other than gamestop. They took too long to go live, so I went with best buy. Hopefully they fulfill the order.

MS being awesome again, hope all this tech is patented .

SojournUK91d ago

Why hope they patented it?

JonnS91d ago (Edited 90d ago )

Cause if it's thiers concept from start to end , they can make loads of cash on license and why would they not have it patent. Plus it's what they do as a software company xx create to own and profit not share .

nitus1091d ago

The last thing we need is more software patents.

Anyway, it would not be in Microsoft's interest to try to patent a concept which is has been around for years when you have companies like IBM that can really hurt Microsoft if they decide to bring out their patent portfolio.

MS patents.. Don't get me started.

JonnS91d ago (Edited 91d ago )

If they created it and it differs greatly from anything else , they have every right to have a patent on it .

JonnS90d ago

Well if that the case then so be cause that means apple is bound to get swept up in the patent fight and that would be awesome .
