The pre-order content isn’t something I had considered. That definitely is good news.
I’m not saying the preload feature isn’t needed but the ability to buy games and content through Xbox.com or Smartglass makes preload a little less-necessary. My big deal is I want the game ready for me when I get home from work because I usually have to work the day after most games are released. If I can buy when I’m away from home and my XO will then download the game or content for me automatically that’s good enough for me.
