One of the main disadvantages of the new generation of game consoles is the lack of free space on hard drive. Microsoft engineers have laid down an interesting feature in the new set-top box to free up space – gamers will be able to remove games in parts.
According to Jason Ronald, the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S give developers a new opportunity – to allow gamers to remove certain components of the game to save space. Simply put, if a gamer needs to urgently free up space on the SSD, it’s not necessary to remove “extra” games entirely.
For example, if a user has finished a single campaign but wants to continue playing the multiplayer, you can only delete the campaign and continue playing online. Developers can choose whether to implement this feature in the game or not.
This feature can not be called a complete exclusive for Xbox. Back in 2019, the system architect of the PS5 Mark Cerny spoke about “more configurable” installation of games for the PS5, which will provide more control over game data, instead of installing games in a single unit. Journalists then deciphered his words as possible to install only a multiplayer for the game or first install everything and then delete a single campaign. However, how exactly all this will be implemented on PS5 is still unclear.
