Microsoft will finally add one of the most requested features to the Xbox One soon as it will allow owners of the console to pre-load and pre-order digital versions of selected games, starting with the company's own Forza Horizon 2.
Microsoft made the announcement at the very end of its Gamescom press event in Germany today, with Xbox head Phil Spencer stating that both Forza Horizon 2 and FIFA 15 will be available for digital pre-order soon, Other unnamed future Xbox One games will also be made available for digital pre-orders in the coming months.
This is a feature that Sony has already added to its PlayStation 4 console, so this new development for the Xbox One brings Microsoft's console further in line with the features available on its biggest rival. What do you think of Microsoft adding this feature to the Xbox One?
