XBOX One – Play While Downloading & Background Updates

Xbox OneMicrosoft have confirmed that owners will be able to play games bought digitally while they are downloading and that all updates to games will happen “seamlessly and in the background”. This play while installing feature had previously being confirmed for disc-bought games (which makes perfect sense to me). This play while downloading malarky does smack somewhat of sorcery though! A PS4 release also indicates that that console will be capable of this, and clarifies that this is possible “once a certain portion of the download is complete”.
