The Xbox One will allow users to play games while they are being downloaded, a Microsoft representative confirmed with Polygon this week.
Microsoft previously noted that players could begin playing disc-based games during installation, though the company did not specify whether games downloaded from Xbox Live would share similar functionality. Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 supported partial-download play earlier this year.
