Xbox One rolls out FastStart feature to speed up downloads

Xbox One's fast-loading feature rolls out today

This system, which was unveiled at E3 2018, targets the most important files needed to begin playing and downloads those first, which should allow players to hop into games they are downloading twice as fast. Either way, this has made for a hilarious mistake to point out, especially since it's an Xbox-centric app with rewards localized to Microsoft customers.

Anyone who has already purchased Darwin Project via Xbox Game Preview will be gifted a Founder's Pack, which features in-game cosmetic items including two legendary sets that each contain a shirt, pants, armour, helmet and boots ensemble, three legendary axes, three legendary bows, a jumpsuit collection and 10 fan gifts. This allows you to hop into a game more quickly after downloading only a portion of the full title. Groups will appear across My Games & Apps, Home and Guide, so you'll be able to access your Groups at a moment's notice. All players have to do is simply click download on selected titles, with the system doing the rest, so it seems like FastStart will be fairly easy to use. They are also tied to one's Xbox Live account, so they can be used across multiple consoles. Hitting Y while on the Dashboard will immediately bring up the search dialog. Pins are a Group by default, and you can create others.

But take a look at the background of one of the app's screens, and you'll see something hilarious.

A frustrating night for the Brazil striker was brought to a premature end soon afterwards, as he was replaced by Douglas Costa. And a lot of that was down to a wonderful save from Thibaut Courtois in injury-time from a superbly hit shot from Neymar .

Fullscreen webcam broadcasting is now enabled for mixer streamers, and Microsoft recommends the following cameras to get the best results. Hyrb said this feature is "perfect for talking to your audience while switching from game to game or setting up before you start playing". You can even do all IRL broadcasts!

Xbox One's July update also introduces several improvements to Mixer.
