PlayStation 4 users will likely be able to pre-load games ahead of launch time beginning some time in April.
When Infamous developer Sucker Punch was asked on Twitter if there was a way to pre-load the title before its launch this Friday, the studio responded, “No preload on PS4 until April and for North America, the PS Store will update at midnight PST…so 3am EST.”
When asked to clarify, the studio said, “Not sure about SCEE but yes on SCEA.”
At a time when many gamers are choosing to go strictly digital with their gaming libraries, this should comes as good news. It will allow those anxious to get their hands on new titles to pre-install games on the eve of their midnight launch.
Additionally, it was discovered that the PlayStation 4’s next firmware update will allow users to dim the LED light bar on the DualShock 4 controller. Sony president Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter.
