Xbox One Now Supports Pre-Loading


I think one of my favorite features about the PS4 is pre-loading. I just used it for Diablo 3: Utimate Evil Edition and it’s awesome that it downloads a couple days before the actual release and I can just play it right at midnight. Waiting hours to download on release and servers being overloaded due to demand are a thing of the past.

Now Xbox One owners can enjoy this awesome feature as well. It was originally announced at Gamescom that pre-loading would start with FIFA 15 on September 26th, but they bumped it up a bit to well, now and you can pre-order and pre-load Madden 15.

It’s not clear what titles in the future will be available for pre-loading in the near future beyond FIFA 15 and Forza Horizon 2, but I’d imagine most AAA releases will have it as an option. Welcome to next-gen, everybody!
