Xbox One doesn't allow you to manage the contents of the hard drive...


quote:

With Forza 5 and Ryse installed to the hard drive, in addition to a number of other review titles, our concern now is all about storage management. Here's where things get a little strange. As far as we can tell, there is no storage overview to tell you how much hard drive space remains or allow you to delete items in one centralized location. There also appears to be no direct access to save games, either - these and game DVR upload clips appear to be synced with the cloud. It's interesting that in what is the most ambitious console operating system ever produced, the user seems more remote than ever from content.


This would imply that once you reach the capacity limit of the drive (of which you would not be aware), the system will automatically delete older games (based on the order in which they were installed) to make room for the newer games you want to install.

On the surface, that seems like a massive oversight by Microsoft.

I have to think they will patch that in at some point.

You do realize this will probably be addressed in the day one patch. It isn't that difficult of a fix.

That seems like something that should be fixed eventually.

I wouldn't mind the oldest game data being deleted or whatever either though. I prefer to manage it myself though.

Oh and what is this drivel. Do you think a console functions like a DVR

It appears to be a specific design intention. Microsoft's response when asked about the topic...

quote:

Xbox One was designed to make storage management automatic. For saved games, settings, and other information that Xbox One customers save to the cloud, space is virtually unlimited. On the internal hard drive in each Xbox One, games and apps can be uninstalled or reinstalled instantly with the click of the Xbox One menu button. Saved games and settings information is retrieved from the cloud for any game as its being reinstalled. By being smart about how storage is managed, Xbox One keeps everyone playing, watching, and sharing their entertainment content rather than worry about limitations. You can also see how much storage any app uses by pressing the menu button on that app.
