Xbox Series X Will Retain Quick Resume Even After Being Unplugged

The feature truly is the next level above software suspension.

One of the best features to come out of the current crop of consoles is the suspend feature. Being able to hop in and out of a game instantly was quite incredible for both the PS4 and Xbox One, and Microsoft is taking that to the next level with Quick Resume on the Xbox Series systems. It’s been officially said that you can now suspend and resume up to 6 games, but it’s actually been shown under the right circumstances it can actually do up to 12. Well, it’s even better than it sounds as you’ll be able to resume games even after your system has been unplugged.

While the current gen suspend feature is great, it is quite limited. For one, you can only do one game at a time and if your system powers down, that cuts out the game. Apparently, on the Series X, your quick resume will retain even after unplugging the system. YouTuber Alanah Pearce detailed the feature, which you can see a link to below. That means even if the system is powered down, you can still jump directly into a game that you have saved in quick resume. The Series S also has a quick resume feature, as shown here, but as of now that hardware has not been given to the press or public, so it’s unclear if it functions in the same way.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will launch November 10th.
