Microsoft claims that the Xbox One will boot faster then your TV while its in the standby mode. Three statuses on Reddit were posted by Xbox director of product planning Albert Penello, answer the question if the Xbox One will always be powered on. In the first statement Penello said, that “On is On. Off is Off. Standby allows “Xbox On”, quick resume, checking for updates, etc. Then he followed on saying;
[Standby] is the mode we’d like to see people in, obviously, so you get back to gaming or watching TV really quick. From standby, it’s likely the Xbox will be on before the TV is completely powered up.”
Standby feature is a really good feature because it helps users get into the game faster or just go back to watching TV quicker. It’s still not clear how long it takes the Xbox One to boot or how much power will it need.
Xbox One is coming out Nov 22.
