Pre-loading digital games remains focus for development on Xbox One
Pre-loading is still on the way for Xbox One, Major Nelson has confirmed in a Reddit thread. This is the second such affirmation of the feature making its way to the new console, which for many users lacks important features for its digital marketplace, including pre-loading and unlocking content by time zone. These problems were evident in the recent Titanfall launch; users had to wait until midnight in the Pacific time zone to begin downloading the game, and, even then, the speed was slow.
With this feature already in place on Steam and the PS4, Microsoft is playing catch-up. Nevertheless, the news that it will eventually come may somewhat quell, or at least delay, the frustration for gamers.
