No checkpoint calamities: Save at any time on Xbox One
The Xbox One will allow players to save, pause and resume games at any point.
"One of things that we haven't talked about is the way the saved game architecture works," Ben Kilgore, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business, told Polygon.
"It's more like a phone a little bit. So you are not going to lose your save game stuff as you are switching between tasks."
Developers will still have the option to insert predetermined save points, but all games will have the ability to save your last moment.
If you walk away from your Xbox One, let it automatically power down and return the next day, it will resume where you left off regardless of checkpoints.
With the new Kinect, all of this is achieved by shouting "XBOX PAUSE" at your console.
