Sony to introduce PS4 game pre-loading in April, says Infamous studio

Sucker Punch Productions seemingly reveals upcoming system feature

PS4 will allow users to pre-load game downloads from April, a first-party development studio has claimed.


A post on the official Sucker Punch Productions Twitter account said the pre-loading feature will be enabled in North America next month, but didn't confirm if it will also be available in Europe then.

Sony has not yet officially announced plans to enable PS4 software pre-loading, but CVG has contacted PlayStation's European arm for clarification.

A PS4 system update due for release "in the coming weeks" will add a number of features aimed at users who want to share gameplay footage online including a "rich video editor" and a new option enabling the exporting of saved clips and screenshots to USB drives.

Additionally, the PS4 firmware update will include a 'HDCP off' option, allowing players to deactivate capture protection and stream gameplay footage through HDMI using a capture card.
