Xbox One can play digital titles mid-download

The next-gen similarities grow

Xbox One can play games while they're still downloading to the system, too. Microsoft confirmed to Polygon that, much like PS4, its console can get gamers into the action by loading the necessary files for early gameplay first.

Microsoft already confirmed physical games could be played while installing from the disc (which is good, since you have to install them), but this announcement brings its quick-play options into closer parity with PS4.

Do you think the ability to play before your download completes will affect whether you buy games physically or digitally?
