“All” PS4 Games to Get Pre-Load on PSN After Destiny: Sony Changes Policy; Watch_Dogs Available at 12:01 AM EST

on May 24, 2014 1:24 PM

A few days ago we reported that Sony changed its official Knowledge Center page to explain that only “certain pre-ordered titles” would benefit from a pre-load option starting with Destiny.

Looks like the tune has changed again, but this time for the better, as reported by Reddit user Louie455, that received a notification on his PlayStation App.

Not only the note mentioned that Watch_Dogs will be available to North American PSN customers at 12:01 AM (a minute after midnight) EST, but it also explained that “all” games pre-ordered after Destiny will have  a pre-load option.

We went to check the Knowledge Center page, and indeed it was changed to match. So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth: from Destiny onward, you’ll be able to pre-download every single PS4 game you’ll pre-order on the PSN. Better late than never.

Below you can check out the two different versions of the Knowledge Center page, before and after the change.
