Six New 360 Titles Join Xbox One Backwards Compatibility Today
In the latest preview build of the Xbox One dashboard, available now to Xbox Insiders in the alpha ring, Microsoft has improved the resolution of Xbox One's Game DVR feature. Right now, Microsoft is only supporting two discs, but game developers wanting to use more can work that out with the company on a case-by-case basis. According to Digital Foundry, game developers got a preview of the system earlier in 2017, in an attempt to persuade them to adopt it in their upcoming titles. Players will be able to download only the chunks they need or want to play the game, rather than downloading the complete game with all content.
"Optional "chunks" can be included on additional discs, with the user potentially able to specify what content or languages they'd like to install".
It boils down to breaking up game data into different chunks, so that non-essential data can be omitted or downloaded later. So, if you live in the United States and play a game that is enjoyed by a world audience, like Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018, you would only need to download the English audio tracks instead of countless other languages that wouldn't add to the gameplay (like Spanish, Portuguese or French).
Brazil tycoon Wesley Batista held for 'insider trading'
Despite the lower house's move to block the charges, they remain valid and can be pursued by prosecutors once Temer leaves office. The Supreme Court was also considering a motion from Temer's lawyers to throw out the Batista evidence.
For example, Xbox One users won't have to download 4K assets meant specifically for the Xbox One X when they buy their game, saving loads of wasted space on your Xbox One hard drive. That means that we will likely see support show up initially in first-party gaming titles, with big name publishers likely following closely behind. All will be confirmed when Microsoft launches the Xbox One X this November. For example, if you have an Xbox One title on an external drive which is then plugged into an X console, the user is prompted to download the X-specific data.
Games like Halo 5 are pushing 100GB on Xbox One already, and with 4K assets thrown in from enhanced versions, download sizes are set to balloon even further.
That's because, thanks to Intelligent Delivery, those without 4K capable consoles won't be required to download the 4K assets that they can't actually make the most of. But Intelligent Delivery offers some smart tools that stand to have a big impact on storage space and download times.
