Xbox One Will Allow You To Play While Downloading Games

Unlike with the Xbox 360 and PS3, you can play Xbox One video games simultaneously while the rest of it downloads in the background.

This was confirmed via a Microsoft representative who spoke with Polygon. This is a helpful feature considering it can get boring waiting for huge downloads to be complete if you have slow internet. Currently for some people, it’s sometimes faster to go to a physical store than wait for a digital copy for a game to download.

Much like the Xbox One, Sony will also allow you to play PS4 games when a portion of it has already been downloaded. It’s good to know that next-generation consoles are making digital downloads more user-friendly.
