This is probably the shortest news post we’ve ever done here at (Xbox) One Cheats, but it concerns a much-asked and very important question. Will Xbox One games be available as digital downloads from the day the are released in retail stores?
@its_Rehab_Time_ All Xbox One titles will be available as digital downloads the day they are released. Provided the console is ALSO out.

This is fantastic news and will negate the need to queue up for release day launches/worry about pre-orders and availability, etc.
All you should need to do is select the game in the marketplace and wait for your download to finish. In fact, you won’t even need to wait as the Xbox One will let you play before the download has completed (it’s smart like that)!
