Albert Penello Confirms Suspend/Resume Is Available On Xbox One At Launch

Microsoft's Albert Penello confirms suspend/resume is available on Xbox One at launch.

The story is too old to be commented.

LOL. There, are you happy!

On a serious note, does anyone have a readout on what Microsoft's day one patch actually includes?

TomShoe1871d ago

Good. I can't buy it because I already have my mind set on a PS4.

But for all you rich people that can afford both, go nuts.

4Sh0w1871d ago

Penello is a good dude he tries to be upfront and answer so many questions, guy has alot of energy.

"But for all you rich people that can afford both, go nuts."

Thanks! I'm not rich, but I will be going nuts on 11/15 & 11/22. So much gaming, and never enough time...

minimur121871d ago

So remember guys, if you're not sure what next gen console to get:

PS4 has real names at launch, Xbox doesn't

Xbox has suspennd/resume at launch, PS4 doesn't.

Take your pick!

Waller1871d ago


And what, exactly, constitutes a "real name" (or "game", if you meant to type that)?

nukeitall1871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )


The PS4 features "real names" i.e. identify your friends by their real name at launch in place of their user id. The Xbox One has promised this feautre, but will not be available at launch.

The Xbox One with instant resume and suspend will be used a lot by me.

Would never used real names, unless I can relay it only to certain people. Internet has plenty of crazy people!

TI_211871d ago

Were people actually expecting all features to be available on launch day? If so you'll be disappointed on both sides of the next gen console war.

Gamingcapacity1871d ago

I'm surprised the PS4 will have to wait to get this. Sony detailed it first at their launch event. Plus they have it working pretty sweet on Vita.

Hopefully it will come sooner rather than later.

Btw Albert is turning into the new Shuhei. He gives out a lot of info and gets involved with the community. He goes a little "PR" sometimes but he's alright.

buynit1871d ago

You don't have to be rich Im far from it.. Its called saving we knew the next gen consoles was coming for quite some time now...

Saigon1871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )

I thought it would never happen...MS finally One-upped Sony regarding a next generation announcement, damn, finally.

Computersaysno1871d ago

Why the heck are we seeing Xbox one articles telling us what is and what isn't around at launch?

Its as if they rushed the machine to market. Oh yea we'll have that! Just not at launch. Oh we are implementing that! 6 months after launch.

Gods sake they talked up a lot about features you can't even get out the box or for ages afterwards

UltimateMaster1870d ago (Edited 1870d ago )

Is the PS4 feature that Sony talked about at their announcement conference Suspend/Resume also available on the Xbox One? Yes.

Yes, the PS4 has Suspend/Resume Mode, they've talked about it in February when they've announced the PS4.

If you don't believe me, you can always watch it again. Skip it to the part where Marc Cerny is talking.

gaffyh1870d ago

@minimur - LOL, you can choose to share real names with whoever you want to or don't want. They said that months ago, pretty much when they announced the console.

On topic - Glad to see they got this featurre ready, because it is probably the best thing about the next gen consoles. I hate not being able to switch off a game because I haven't got to a save point. One of the reasons why I love the Vita and PSPgo.

-Reads title of this news-

Yet again this news hasn't persuaded me in the slightest to interest me in the XBone.

Wake me up when you bring more exclusive JRPGs for your system MS. That'll probably be one of your biggest challenges ever.

Blaze9291871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )

yet you take the time to not only click the article, read it (only the title mind you), scroll down, hit reply, think if a comment, type the comment, THEN hit add reply?

What do you call that if not interest? Hate? Envy? Jealousy? Yeah i think so.

Docknoss1871d ago

Yet again, no one cares about you or anything you say

UltimateMaster1870d ago

How can anyone be jealous of something Sony started at their announcement of the PS4?

If you don't believe me, you can always watch it.

It includes the ability to be able to actually use the console. Really! You won't be able to do anything with it until you update.

dblogan38291871d ago

Same with the PS4. It requires a day 1 update as well.

thejigisup1871d ago

I was wondering about that really, day one patch still required for xb1. Day one patch recommended @dblogan for ps4

Saigon1871d ago


MS day one patch is required. Can't use the system if you don't

Sony day one patch is recommended or optional but not required. You can still use the system if you choose not to update it.

sigfredod1870d ago

Good news for xbone buyers

v6volume1870d ago

Microsoft also confirms 24 hour check in available at launch

Honestly I didn't even know it had this xD.

capjacksparrow1871d ago

Yeah, kinda disappointed that it isn't on PS4 at launch. I was interested in the suspend/resume mode. Ah well, still getting a PS4.

Animal Mutha 761871d ago

I think that's one thing that people have forgotten or overlooked that the X1 has 8gb of flash non volatile memory in addition to its traditional 8gb volatile and HDD.

It's a well thought out device in my opinion.

ape0071871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )

make kinectless Xbox one, 500$ is little bit too expensive especially when there's a deadly sony machine standing at 400$ with no worse gfx

Blaze9291871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )

i dont get it. If you are already planning to spend $400 on one system, how is a difference of $100 all a sudden too expensive? Like if you have $400, you really can't come up with another $100? Is it that serious? If you really want it that is.

BUT the value of a dollar does differ from one to another so i can only speak for myself. But I know if i wanted something, and $100 was holding me back...I would get that $100 with no problem. You working. Just me though.

ape0071871d ago (Edited 1871d ago )

100$ matters a lot for the market not me, look at any price that ever happened

also ps4 is the only system that is cheaper but not weaker, the cheaper system almost always sell but this time, it's cheaper and weaker and it's Sony, get it?

1871d ago
Biggest1871d ago

If you have $400 you may as well go for that $40,000 car. I mean, it's only $100 more than the one that's only $100 more than the one that's only $100 more. . .

Where does this "how is a $100 more too expensive?" junk come from? Who pays $100 more for less anyway (other than Apple lovers)?

Mr_Writer851871d ago


Who pays $100 for an inferior product?

thejigisup1871d ago

Some people man, $100 dollars ain't much considering how much longer the xb1 releases. Save an extra$25 a week and boom anyone can have the extra dough to get that day one mandatory update. Hopefully come Christmas people don't expect to open up that new l33t xb1 and play it right away. But that's great y'all can snap.

rainslacker1870d ago $100 more to get a camera I don't want, or have $100 to buy another game(almost 2) that I do want.

Decisions are hard.
