Xbox One Game Preloads Are On The Roadmap

Pre loads will probably be the thing to get me to buy my copies digitally from now on.

they need to sort the prices out first

Bonkerz1735d ago

What do you mean sort out the prices? Majority of games that come out brand new are 59.99. I know at some random times there are sales, but thats when i will buy the disc. If they can get the preloading down, i will definitely go fully digital as that would be a nice perk.

Already download all my games.. But waiting until 3am for titanfall was annoying.. Preload or timezone release would fix that

Fireseed1735d ago


That's what he means and I agree with him. Around 15$ of that 59.99 is the shipping, handling, and packaging of the game. If it's digital why should it be 59.99? personally if I saw it drop to even 50$ I'd be happy.

Which is a hard thing to do without upsetting retail stores and chains.

Doesn't the Xbox One have preloads?

Bonkerz1735d ago

Thats a pretty dumb question to ask since the article is about Preloads being worked on to come later..

Who read articles...Why article?

Jsoc1734d ago

No not yet.... I had to wait until 3 am EST to start the download of Titanfall....

They (both consoles) need to take a long hard look at how Steam operates.

With the size of these new games it's a must have feature. With MS originally going hardcore digital download I'm surprised this feature wasn't available day one.

That would be really awesome, and much appreciated.

Thank you...they are listening.
