According to Vince Zapella twitter this will be in place for Titanfall. Surely all future games will also?

If true all I can say is "about time" Gives more hope for digital pre-order bonuses as well.

Edit: May Have jumped the gun here. I didn't even think about PC version.

Edit2: Titanfall Xbox One showing available for pre-load on Microsoft Store. At least we now know the Xbox One has this capability, Hopefully all future games will be able to do the same.

edit: i assume it should be ready after the march os update since there is no buy button yet

you should change the title to "Titanfall supports digital pre-loading" at this point

Unless I'm missing something, they don't mention XB1 anywhere in those tweets. Could be talking about the PC version.

Would be nice if true, though.

Hoping this carries onto other games. I have a faster connection but even with that it's bound to get bogged down on launch day if stuff like the eShop was any indication.

Probably referring to Origin on PC, but pre loads on consoles need to become a thing.

I'm really hoping that MS will make Titanfall the first game you can pre order/load on Xbox.

It seems crazy to me that they don't have a system like that in place. Even Sony has one.

Edit: It seems like Titanfall is the first game to support preload on Xbox. Now if only they can change the time the game unlocks... Sucks for east coast people.

At the moment no, but it was possible on PS3 so I don't see why it wouldn't be possible on PS4. If anything, Infamous would be the first game to offer preloading. We shall see.

Did the 360 have digital preorders/preloading at all?

Pre-purchase: You will be charged the full price immediately for this pre-purchase. Xbox One game expected to release on March 11th, 2014. You may download the game from Xbox Live before then, but it will not be playable until after 12:01 AM PST on the release date in your country. No refunds.

No, and for the most part, it never even had day 1 digital titles.

Now this I like...I wonder what the chances of something going wrong with the activation are. Sucks it'll become available at 3 AM EST time, though =/

Why PST in the UK? We're already getting it three days late.

Edit- Never mind the UK store says midnight in your country.

Where did you find a link to the Xbox One game from? I couldn't see it in the search, was trying to see if Thief (out next week) had a similar option on it.

I know Thief on Xbox One is 21gb or so though

I certainly hope so. I'd preorder digitally right this moment, if I could.

It begins. Pre load unlock times irritate me though. All these Seattle west coast companies ( Micorosft, Valve ) think the rest of the country is in the West Coast too. Why is the unlock time 12:01 PST? It should be 12:01 in whatever time zone you are in. Or just unlock it at 12:01 EST for everyone.

This is great. I'm going all digital this gen and this kind of thing makes it a lot easier. I would like to see some better pricing as time goes on as well, but this kind of thing (which seems like a pretty easy win) is the stuff they should be doing.
