Xbox One X Holiday Surprise Is Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy?

Xbox Games with Gold October 2017, What to Expect?

Microsoft is looking to fuel this need for urgency with a new method for installing and streaming games on the Xbox One called "Intelligent Delivery".

While Intelligent Delivery has the potential to greatly streamline delivery and installation of games on the Xbox One family of consoles, it is up to the individual developer to implement it.

Xbox One gamers have loved this feature ever since it debuted over a year ago, though there's been some debate about how much they actually use it.

Microsoft is already testing out the controller versus keyboard and mouse combination - Gears of War 4 already supports cross-play across Xbox One and PC.

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.

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.

In terms of device-specific content, Intelligent Delivery allows developers to partition off artwork for either Xbox One or the X, with the console only delivering the assets that are needed for the hardware in question.

It could also mean Xbox One owners won't need to download the 4K visuals designed for the new Xbox One X. In the case of the latter, this means that game audio or cutscenes in non-relevant languages don't need to be downloaded - Intelligent Delivery could, in theory, install just the assets applicable to your region, with other languages an optional "on demand" download, accessible via the Xbox One dash.

"We have over 100 games with Xbox One X enhancements". If Microsoft feels that the effort will be worth it, we could see this get a global release for Backwards Compatibility some time later. All will be confirmed when Microsoft launches the Xbox One X this November. But Intelligent Delivery offers some smart tools that stand to have a big impact on storage space and download times.
