Great news was revealed out of the Xbox One camp recently. Chief Product Officer, Marc Whitten, took to the Twittersvere and revealed a feature on the Xbox One that many have wanted for quite some time. With the Xbox One you’ll be able to queue up a purchase and have your console download it while you’re away. I’ve always hated the fact that I could queue games on the Xbox 360 but had to go home and turn on the console in order for them to download.
Here is the direct quote from Marc Whitten:
“Yes! Of course you can download while you are away. Always up to date, always your console. The beauty of low power mode! All marketplace items can be downloaded. You won’t have to worry about updates – they’ll download [without] you having to care.” - Marc Whitten
I’m not sure how much of a “low powered” state the Xbox One will be in but it’s good to know that when you buy something online or via mobile phone, you don’t have to wait for it to download. With this new feature, your content will be ready when you get home.
Go Team Xbox One!
