Xbox One's 'Intelligent Delivery' system will free up hard drive space

A new feature might be coming to both current Xbox One consoles, as well as the upcoming Xbox One X, and according to Digital Foundry, this new feature will be called "Intelligent Delivery". Though Xbox is recommending that this system should only be used for new titles, Intelligent Delivery will work for existing games as well. Developers could theoretically use ID to carve up their game into "chunks" or what I like to call "modules", effectively letting gamers download or install the portions they want.

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. Since all three Xbox One consoles vary in power and efficacy, Intelligent Delivery is a tool that dictates and manages games, resources and assets across the family of machines on the consumer side, effectively allowing users to download "shrunken" games. Multiple tags can be attached to a chunk, and they can be device-specific or language-specific, for example.

His work at the newspaper included coverage of Brexit, the European Union as a whole, consumer companies, and currency markets. He was on a beach and had wandered away to find a toilet when he stumbled into an area known to be infested with crocodiles.

Xbox One owners may soon be spared the hassle of installing every last megabyte of game files on their consoles.

It should also mean that you don't need to download bits of a game that you don't need, reducing download times.

He vowed to return to the state, where millions of residents remain without power and areas remain inaccessible to recovery crews. The girl's death is part of a series of awful incidents in the wake of Hurricane Irma, which ravished Florida last week.

The Xbox One X will be able to handle 4K capture at 60fps, but if you don't want to upgrade or can't at the momemt, this is great news if you've got a lot of capture needs on Xbox One at the moment. All will be confirmed when Microsoft launches the Xbox One X this November. That means that we will likely see support show up initially in first-party gaming titles, with big name publishers likely following closely behind. This is just the beginning, when it comes to the Xbox One X intelligent delivery there are more options available. Backup the game to an external hard drive and plug it into the Xbox One X. With only the required assets being downloaded, precious hard drive space will be saved and download times will be cut short.
