At E3 2018, Microsoft announced FastStart, a new, machine-learning technology that is designed to get players into their new, or newly-installing, games faster. In July’s Xbox One update, which is live now, FastStart is officially live for a select list of Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Original Xbox games. The total list of supported games sits at 23, and should help Microsoft’s concept of “Ready to Start” a much more accurate selling point for the console.

The list of currently supported games is as follows:

Xbox One games

  • Arcade Game Series: Pac-Man
  • Devil May Cry HD Collection
  • Don Bradman Cricket 17
  • Don’t Starve Together: Console Edition
  • Game of Thrones - Episode 1: Iron from Ice
  • Magic Duels
  • Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two - Episode 1
  • Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm
  • Neverwinter
  • Pac-Man Championship Edition 2
  • Rivals of Aether
  • ScreamRide
  • Tales from the Borderlands - Episode 1: Zer0 Sum
  • The Flame in the Flood
  • The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season
  • Tropico 5 - Penultimate Edition
  • Ys Origin

Xbox 360 games

  • Dead Space 2
  • Toy Story 3
  • Viva Piñata

Original Xbox games

  • Destroy All Humans!
  • Fuzion Frenzy
  • Sid Meier’s Pirates!

Currently, only the English-language versions of these games are FastStart-enabled. While this technology doesn’t make games download faster, it does make your downloads prioritize making the game playable. Generally, “Ready to Start” would often just lead to staring at a new menu or loading screen in the game, but FastStart is designed to actually allow for gameplay. Test it out!
