The lights are on
Microsoft spokesperson Major Nelson says that the company is still working on pre-loading for digitally downloaded Xbox One games.
On a Reddit thread entitled "Xbox One Needs Pre-Loading Feature!", Nelson logged and wrote, "All I can say right now is that yes, we want this feature as well." When asked abotu a timeframe he declined to give specifics.
There had been indications that game pre-loading was going to be available for Titanfall, but that feature never materialized.
Sony recently confirmed that pre-loading for PlayStation 4 will be added to the console's firmware in an upcoming system update.
