If you find yourself bamboozled by online content; clicking through and downloading everything that catches your eye; players can literally select what will be downloaded next.
Changing the download queue is simple; go to the Xbox menu, select pause download and the very next game in the queue will automatically start downloading. The queue will continue downloading from the next title, so it’s completely possible to control what content gets downloaded first.
Access Your Media Anywhere
