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.

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.
