Xbox One X's Intelligent Delivery shrinks game sizes

Xbox One X's Intelligent Delivery shrinks game sizes

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.

Is Intelligent Delivery something you'd welcome as an Xbox gamer? 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.

One example of a situation that will take advantage of the new Xbox One technology is a game that supports various languages. 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.

It boils down to breaking up game data into different chunks, so that non-essential data can be omitted or downloaded later.

To give you an example, download a game to the Xbox One and the 4K textures will not be downloaded as the hardware does not support 4K. It'll mean potentially huge savings for Xbox One owners as Xbox One X games proliferate.

Mr. Leadbetter also postulates that since Intelligent Delivery effectively adds multi-disc support to the Xbox One family of consoles that developers could start shipping dual-disc games, with singleplayer campaign on one disc and online multiplayer assets on the other (think Halo 3: ODST). Backup the game to an external hard drive and plug it into the Xbox One X. This is now not possible with the Xbox One.

It'll be fun to see what devs can do with this feature in a year or two's time. Microsoft exec Mike Ybarra recently confirmed that users can pre-download 4K texture packs to prepare for the Xbox One X's launch.

The system, known internally as Intelligent Delivery, will be available for both the Xbox One and the highly anticipated Xbox One X. With only the required assets being downloaded, precious hard drive space will be saved and download times will be cut short.
