Sony Reveals Pre-Loading For PSN, Sorcery First Up
Can't wait to grab the latest hot game that plans to hit the PlayStation Store? Are you an avid pre-orderer?
The good news is that Sony has introduced a new system that lets you pre-buy and download certain games on the PSN.
This means you can actually download your anticipated title before the release date, and you'll be able to play them immediately after they become officially available. The first title to take advantage of this new initiative is one of the most important games for the PlayStation Move: Sorcery. This will launch next week but if you want to have it ready to go, feel free to take advantage. This is similar to Steam's pre-loading capabilities, which lets PC gamers download titles before the actual release dates. It's all about being proactive, yes?
I find this to be a very cool feature although these days, I'm not sure just how badly I need to play a game within minutes of it releases. ...and I thought midnight launches were the epitome of "Damn, I need this now!"
