From a user perspective, files like audio commentaries can be managed through the Xbox dashboard - and deleted if you don't need them any more.

The content tag allows users to download only the parts of the game that they want.

Bush, Ryan said, "You can't just do what Bush did in 2001 and 2003". "Look, we ran on tax reform". Ryan said that Republicans hope tax reform could lead to 3% economic growth.

Let us know what you think about the Xbox One X intelligent delivery system. Similarly, additional components of the game not crucial to the user can be tagged by the developer as optional installs, or capable of being deleted at a later date - level editors, for example.

Considering some titles are approaching 100GB in install sizes, this could be a huge boon for Xbox One owners seeking to fit more than a handful of titles on their hard drives. However, for gameplay, disc one must be in the drive, acting as a license check.

It'll be fun to see what devs can do with this feature in a year or two's time. Intelligent Delivery also plays into this. This is just the beginning, when it comes to the Xbox One X intelligent delivery there are more options available. But what's impressive here is that the system of chunks and tags devised to address this challenge has been expanded out to offer space savings for many other scenarios unrelated to the arrival of the new console.

Microsoft has named this new system Intelligent Delivery. It's not clear how widely publishers will adopt it, however, as there's no indication using the system will be mandatory. For example, a first-person shooter may have too much commonality in its campaign and multiplayer art assets to make segregating them a worthwhile prospect. With Xbox One X intelligent delivery, you can choose to only download the English audio. But Intelligent Delivery offers some smart tools that stand to have a big impact on storage space and download times.
