Soon Xbox games might not require full downloads to play

Still, with Microsoft likely to lead the way with its own games, the demands from Xbox One and Xbox One X owners for all providers to do the same might force them to get with the Intelligent Delivery program. The new developer systems Microsoft is putting in place is to help ease the pressure on our HDDs, and there's games already using this system today.

"Optional "chunks" can be included on additional discs, with the user potentially able to specify what content or languages they'd like to install".

According to the report, the tech can even be applied to existing titles, if publishers choose to go back and add content tags to their games.

You'll also be able to save these newer, larger recordings to an external hard drive, which should reduce the frustrating samba of consistently trying to delete things to free up space so you can keep recording, eventually being faced with the issue of deleting the game you're actually wanting to record. For example, this would mean that those who, for various reasons, don't want to download the 4K assets for Xbox One X games won't have to, or they might opt out to download the multi-language support that many games come with, saving huge amounts of storage space. With this new system, only the required data would be downloaded or pushed to any Xbox system based on the current game requirements.

Intelligent Delivery could dramatically speed of up development in a number of key ways, and it will be interesting how the feature revolutionizes Xbox gaming-and possibly even total console gaming-in the future.

It'll be fun to see what devs can do with this feature in a year or two's time. This is just the beginning, when it comes to the Xbox One X intelligent delivery there are more options available.

"We have over 100 games with Xbox One X enhancements".

Let us know what you think about the Xbox One X intelligent delivery system. But what's impressive here is that the system of chunks and tags devised to address this challenge has been expanded out to offer space savings for many other scenarios unrelated to the arrival of the new console.
