Right now, Xbox One owners who pre-order digital games can't download games in advance. That meant, for example, that Titanfall players had to wait until the servers were live to start the massive download. It was a massive inconvenience for gamers and handicapped digital purchases.

However, that's going to change this fall. Xbox One owners can pre-order and preload Forza Horizon 2 and FIFA 15. This will enable them to start playing the minute the game has launched.

Additional titles eligible for preloading will be announced soon. I'm a bit disappointed this feature won't be available for every new release automatically. It's a step in the right direction, though.
