Xbox is Really Smart With Game Downloads: Here is How

We simply can't help but to expect Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy to be that mystery surprise coming to the Xbox One X. There is already a leak that has proven the game to get ported over to the console from Microsoft and it really looks convincing. Though Xbox is recommending that this system should only be used for new titles, Intelligent Delivery will work for existing games as well.

Dividing content into chunks and tagging it will apply to gameplay-specific content too; players can delete game modes they're not using, for example. The technology would also allow multi-disc games to be supported. Dubbed Intelligent Delivery, the system reportedly prioritizes only what each gamer actively needs, rather than forcing them to download the entire title. Digital Foundry uses the example of a level editor, that perhaps many players won't bother with, or the campaign in a multiplayer-focused title that you might never play again.

It's basically a way for developers to segment a game's data into "chunks".

Save your game to an external hard drive and head over to a friend's house with an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, and you'll immediately be prompted to download the 4K assets you're missing.

"But", you give voice your concerns, "aren't games chock-full of 4K assets going to take longer to download?" All of this will still be available on demand via the Xbox One dash. Based on the documentation we've seen, while the underlying software for supporting multiple Blu-rays allow for up to 15 discs, Microsoft is supporting a maximum of two right now for mastering.

When the Xbox One X launches in November it will allow exclusive 4K, HDR and 60FPS game capture options. 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. But Intelligent Delivery offers some smart tools that stand to have a big impact on storage space and download times.
