https://press-start.com.au/news/xbox/2020/10/03/the-xbox-series-x-s-will-allow-you-to-uninstall-parts-of-games-to-free-up-storage/

So lets say you only play single player of a game, you can choose to uninstall the multiplayer portion. Or if you only play the single player once and will never play it again, you can choose to uninstall that.

This will be up to developers to enable in their games, but it is a neat feature to save space on the internal HD

That's awesome. Will they let us take all the shit gameplay out of halo and only keep the only good stuff, like the options screen and other menus?

Yeah I thought I heard talk of this awhile ago, perhaps it was just rumour and speculation. Anyway that’s a pretty nice feature to have to help save space.

Mark Cerny announced this for PS5 awhile ago. Glad to see Xbox has it also.

Kind of required if you have a Series S or a PS5.

MS got this gen in the bag. PS5 just getting embarrassing now.

Wait till everything is finally unveiled and more of their lies exposed.

Cows gonna be hyping up their powerful PC's.

Well done MS! This is incredible for me as I mostly play multiplayer and skip the single player in almost everything I play.

Maybe I'm crazy but I thought both companies mentioned this a year ago? I guess I was just imagining things or maybe it was some random patent talk

I miss when games were games.

You went into the singleplayer beat it then hopped into multiplayer.

I don't like this approach from microsoft where there is 2 different versions of the same game one multiplayer one singleplayer this is embarassing.

Make one game and put it on my system I'm sick of them being split up lately like crackdown 3 and crap.

what on earth are you talking about "2 different versions"??? First of all if you are missing when you used to beat single player "then hopping into multiplayer"

That is the exact same system as it is now and would be if a dev decides to make part of their game uninstallable (i.e. you beat SP and will never play it so you decide to delete it.. no one is forcing you to delete it BTW)

And in your desire to be anti MS you failed to read the rest of the thread where people have pointed out Sony is doing the exact same thing

@ProtossRushX: This is stupid. You’re for less value and less options for gamer’s storage?

If MS didn’t do this and only Sony did you’d have a post up here so fast...

I'm fairly certain this will be pretty commonplace on both consoles moving forward. It is already implemented in some games on both current gen consoles right now. Although it does need some work.

Yeah, this will be common place next gen on all consoles although not enforced by any means. You can already do it on games like Modern Warfare.

It won't matter either way to me. I have always played through the campaign of a game before jumping into multiplayer.

It may not reduce the game size down is much as you think though. It all depends whether textures and audio from the single player are also used in the multi-player. For most games, the multiplayers uses the same assets as the single player game.

You would likely save more removing the single player element of a game than removing the multiplayer. Modern Warfare has a a fair bit dialogue and video cut scenes which could be removed, but the texture data is reused for multi-player.

In the case of Halo Infinite, they needed more assets, not less.

Maybe im crazy too because i also recalled this being mentioned in PS related news.
