Microsoft’s long-awaited new $ 500 (£ 450, $ 749)and $ 300 (£ 250, AU $ 499) consoles are now . In addition to faster load times, backward compatibility and Quick Resume, comes with Smart Delivery, a feature that gives you the latest version of a game you have already purchased for your new console, and also ensures that you do not lose progress in your game as you go between console generations.
Here’s everything you need to know about Xbox Smart Delivery and how it works on your console.
What is Xbox Smart Delivery?
With Smart Delivery, you can buy a game for Xbox One, with a series of X or S copy automatically included. If you upgrade the console later, Microsoft feeds the console to the correct version of the game. Smart Delivery basically means that you will always play the latest version of the best quality of the game, and you only need to buy it once. The feature may seem like an old hat for PC gamers who have long had the ability to automatically patch versions of games via Steam.
To use Smart Delivery, you need the new Xbox Series X or S console when they are released in November, and the game must be compatible.
What games does Xbox Smart Delivery use?
Microsoft said it will use Smart Delivery on all exclusive Xbox Game Studios titles optimized for Xbox Series X and S, including Halo Infinite. Madden 21 will be available for a limited time. When it comes to using Smart Delivery on games, Microsoft has left it up to developers. Most recently, the company said it will do sodownloaded to the new system at no extra cost when the updated game is available.
Xbox Smart Delivery is also compatible with Xbox Game Pass games Gears 5, also. Game Pass is Microsoft’s $ 10 monthly gaming subscription service that unlocks access to over 100 games.
