Xbox One 'Intelligent Delivery' Would Supercharge Game Downloads And Save Disk Space

Xbox One's new download delivery method will save time and hard drive space
From a dev perspective, it means XBO/XBS users don't have to download 4K assets - because that can be assigned as a chunk just for the Xbox One X. Now if you choose to plug that hard drive back into the original Xbox One then the 4K textures will still be there but you can delete them from the settings as they are not going to be used.
Let us know what you think about the Xbox One X intelligent delivery system. Another example, reportedly given by Microsoft, is games with multi-language support. With the Intelligent Delivery system, single-player and multiplayer parts of the game can be partitioned off, allowing the user to delete either component if they're not using them.
As we've previously reported, when it comes to 4K assets, the Xbox Store will intelligently decide what types of assets to install and unpack.
Considering some titles are approaching 100GB in install sizes, this could be a huge boon for Xbox One owners seeking to fit more than a handful of titles on their hard drives.
It'll be fun to see what devs can do with this feature in a year or two's time. Anything beyond that may require a bespoke arrangement with the platform holder. Microsoft exec Mike Ybarra recently confirmed that users can pre-download 4K texture packs to prepare for the Xbox One X's launch. Now, with the impending redesign of the Xbox One's UI, there will be an upgrade that brings footage captured via the program to 1080p, at long last.
The same can be said about the campaign and multiplayer mode. With Xbox One X intelligent delivery, you can choose to only download the English audio. But the foundation has been laid and the bottom line is that Intelligent Delivery is a powerful new tool available to developers with the potential to reduce download times and make more of your limited hard drive space - and that can only be a good thing.
