The much wanted ability to pre-order and pre-load PlayStation 4 games is coming soon. Starting next week, gamers will be able to buy games and load them to their PlayStation 4s before they are released.
“Automatic pre-load on PS4 allows you to download pre-ordered games before the release date, so you can get into your games after they’re released faster than ever,” says Chieh Chen over on the PlayStation Blog. ” We all know that some of the biggest games can take a while to download, and with the pre-load functionality, you’ll be able to download and install those huge files up to several days in advance. And don’t worry if you forget: any titles you’ve pre-ordered will be automatically pre-loaded and auto-downloaded to your PS4 system by default. All you have to do is pre-order the game, make sure your PS4 remains in standby mode, and sit back and relax.”
The first game to take advantage of this feature will be Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark which comes out on Tuesday, June 24th. In addition, all titles made available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store on or after May 20, 2014, will be pre-loaded. There will also be a handy countdown timer so you know exactly how long you have to wait to play your pre-ordered/pre-loaded game. The ability to pre-load pre-ordered games is currently available on the PlayStation 3.
