Xbox just announced a new feature called Smart Delivery.
Here’s what it is: let’s say you have an Xbox One X and you buy Cyberpunk 2077 for your Xbox One X. After a few months when Xbox Series X launches, you buy that shiny new console. Now you don’t have to worry about purchasing Cyberpunk 2077 for your Xbox Series X console because through Smart Delivery Xbox will give you the optimised version of Cyberpunk 2077 on your Xbox Series X console and even transfer your saved data without any additional cost. You can call it a sort of ‘forward compatibility’. It’s up to the developers to support Smart Delivery and all Xbox Game Studios titles will have it. Here’s a list of games that have confirmed Smart Delivery: Halo Infinite, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Destiny 2, DiRT 5, Scarlet Nexus, Chorus, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, The Ascent, Call of the Sea, Gears 5, Second Extinction and Metal: Hellslinger. This is over and above Xbox’s beautiful backwards compatibility feature. Oh, and it works with both, digital and disc games
