Microsoft tries to woo PC gaming develoeprs with Xbox One resource boost

Six New 360 Titles Join Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Today

Microsoft is looking to fuel this need for urgency with a new method for installing and streaming games on the Xbox One called "Intelligent Delivery". According to Digital Foundry, who acquired developer notes for the new ID system, Intelligent Delivery will give developers the power to carve up key portions of their games into "chunks". For example, the maximum memory available for a game running in the foreground is just 1 GB.

Dividing content into chunks and tagging it will apply to gameplay-specific content too; players can delete game modes they're not using, for example.

Microsoft is already testing out the controller versus keyboard and mouse combination - Gears of War 4 already supports cross-play across Xbox One and PC. For FIFA games where the download is largely taken up by all of the various languages supported by the game, users would be able to delete all of them except the language they need.

"Optional "chunks" can be included on additional discs, with the user potentially able to specify what content or languages they'd like to install". Games will download quicker and you can get into the game much faster.

It has been quite some time since Microsoft said that it is working on a keyboard and mouse for Xbox One.

Save your game to an external hard drive and head over to a friend's house with an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, and you'll immediately be prompted to download the 4K assets you're missing.

Mr. Leadbetter also postulates that since Intelligent Delivery effectively adds multi-disc support to the Xbox One family of consoles that developers could start shipping dual-disc games, with singleplayer campaign on one disc and online multiplayer assets on the other (think Halo 3: ODST). All will be confirmed when Microsoft launches the Xbox One X this November.

"We have over 100 games with Xbox One X enhancements". Principally, the arrival of Xbox One X with its big 4K texture packs shouldn't make life harder for owners of the older model - many which only have 500GB hard drives.

As games get bigger, Microsoft has cooked up a sly way to keep Xbox One and Xbox One X download times down, not to mention save on hard drive space. Now, with the impending redesign of the Xbox One's UI, there will be an upgrade that brings footage captured via the program to 1080p, at long last.
