A PlayStation 4 feature we'd love Xbox to copy

The way Sony allows downloads of some games is really good and I wish Microsoft would do the same.
As we've moved into a more digital-driven world when it comes to delivering games to consoles, we're left with the always unpleasant wait for the download and install to complete.
Especially now we're in a world with the Xbox One X with its inflated file sizes thanks to enhanced assets, even with decent broadband you can't just jump in and play.
However, on the PS4, Sony has a neat way of allowing games to split their downloads, meaning you can play your preferred part of the game a little bit quicker. I think that's awesome and I'd love to see Xbox implement a similar feature.
