Among a slew of new features making their way to the PlayStation 4 is one that may just put an end to the strife those with digital game preferences experience on launch night. Starting next week, PS4 owners will now be able to pre-load their digital games before release, therefore putting an end to the massive PSN mayhem that endlessly ensues around launch time.
According to Sony’s announcement, all 10 PS4 games given pre-order status at E3 last week will be eligible for pre-download. Among these games are the highly-anticipated Battlefield Hardline, Far Cry 4, Destiny, and The Order: 1886 — but a full download list can be found below:
The feature goes into full effect next week, with Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark being the first game to take advantage of the new feature. To sweeten an already delightful feature, all games made available on the PlayStation Store for pre-order after May 20th are now eligible for pre-download, meaning you’ll never have to endure a crazy midnight download ever again.
While Sony is busy pushing more PS4 purchases and downloads, you should also be aware that this new feature is also eligible for the PS3.
With this wonderful new update, Sony is stepping the game up, showing that no gamer should be left behind — and greatness should never have to wait.
