PS4 PSN Auto-Download feature detailed

SCE Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida announced on Twitter a new feature for the PlayStation 4. Any purchases made on the PlayStation Network remotely by a smartphone will automatically be downloaded by a sleeping PS4. The PS4 will then go back into power-save mode when done.

“When you buy a PS4 game on smartphone it will wake you PS4 up to start downloading the game. PS4 goes back to sleep after that,” read the tweet.

Video you'll love from around the web

The PlayStation 3 has allowed remote purchases of network content via that web and from a smartphone via a mobile browser, but hasn’t offered this level of convenience of your system downloading the content for you.
