With the console wars heating up between the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, it looks like Xbox is offering a few new options for gamers. Both console manufacturers have now shown off their new consoles and the choice between the two is going to depend on exclusives and how gamers can move forward on their respective consoles. Xbox is actually offering something called Smart Delivery. Don’t worry, we’re going to break down what exactly it is and what are the games that are supported by it.
Xbox Smart Delivery Explained
Basically, Xbox’s Smart Delivery system ensures that if you buy a game for the Xbox One, let’s say Gears 5 (review), and you decide to buy an Xbox Series X in the near future, you will not need to buy the game a second time to play it on the Xbox Series X. Microsoft will provide the Xbox Series X version to you, free of cost. You can download the game for the Xbox Series X if you’ve already purchased it for the Xbox One X with no additional charges. For example, if you’re planning on buying Halo Infinite for the Xbox One X, when you do finally upgrade to an Xbox Series X, you can just download the game to your new console. It really is that easy. Even better, you’ll have the optimised version of the game on the Xbox Series X as well. You just have to buy the game once to play it on both consoles. Now, if you own both consoles and have them placed in different rooms in your house, Smart Delivery will recognize that and deliver the optimised version for each console. Also, when you purchase a game on Xbox One today, your game library, progression and entire gaming legacy will move forward with you if you jump into the next generation with the Xbox Series X.
