Following on from the addition of local network transfer that was introduced to members of the Xbox Insider program last week, Mike Ybarra has just announced on Twitter that Alpha ring members can now prepare for the launch of the Xbox One X by downloading 4K content updates in advance.

This was another one of the features that was mentioned during the Xbox live show at this year's Gamescom, and will allow you to transfer any of your Xbox One Enhanced games to your shiny new console on November 7th via external storage or network transfer, giving you the chance to begin playing straight away without waiting for lengthy downloads.
