One of the new features coming to the next generation of Xbox consoles when the Xbox Series S and X launch this November is Quick Resume, allowing you to switch between multiple games near-instantly.
We've seen this demoed on the Xbox Series X before, but Microsoft has now shared an updated look at it running on the lesser-powered Xbox Series S, and it seems to be working very well indeed!
You can check out the footage in the timestamped video above (begins at 4:40), in which Program Manager Jason Ronald switches between Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Minecraft Dungeons and a couple of others mid-game.
As far as we're aware, Quick Resume will support a minimum of three games at once on the new consoles, with the potential for more depending on the memory demand of each title. The feature will require just a few seconds of loading between each game, and is possible due to the custom SSD tech included as part of the console.
Interested in the new Quick Resume feature? Will you make use of it? Let us know in the comments.
Even though this is a simple feature for PC games, it’s a huge next-gen feature for consoles.
Think swapping between new games and old games is sly little dig at Sony regarding backwards compatibility?...
This feature is what makes next gen a game changer imo.
"As far as we're aware, Smart Delivery will support a minimum of three games at once on the new consoles"
I thought Smart Delivery was the phrase for intergenerational games with the relevant version for each console or am I mistaken or reading this wrong?
@normanself Sorry, that's my bad. It's been a very busy couple of days!
It was meant to say Quick Resume...
Thought that was the case
@FraserG Forgiven. I bet its been your busiest week in a while!
@Jaxx420 Busiest week since the Xbox Games Showcase in July. It's been fun, but I wish I hadn't caught a bad cold right before it started...
@FraserG Get well! These days of leaks and official announcements have been hypnotic. PS5 prices suspiciously announced in a few days 😂!
