Xbox Series X Quick Resume Lets You Suspend Up to 6 Games

Xbox Series X Quick Resume Lets You Suspend Up to 6 Games - News

The Xbox One would let you suspend one game at a time and return to it where you last paused it. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are taking the Quick Resume feature to the next level, letting you suspend multiple games at a time. 

Several gaming outlets have released hands-on previews today and GameSpot in testing was able to use Quick Resume to suspend up to six games at the same time. When they tried to launch a seventh game, the first game booted would have to be relaunched. However, there is no indication when this happens. 

When using the Quick Resume feature it takes five to eight seconds to jump from one game to another. This helps you save time when swapping between games. Especially when you look at current-generation consoles where some games take over a minute to load.

I will honestly play more games thanks to this feature. I like to jump around multiple games so being able to do that without load times is like a dream.
