Sony: We Can Access Our Digital PS4 Libraries On Any System
That's a nice bonus, huh?
Sony engineer Neil Brown told Develop (as cited by OPM UK) that any gamer's digital library will be available on any system:
"You can visit your friend's house you can log into your account and play any game from your digital library, which is good."
Furthermore, Brown added that by leveraging the PS4's "Play As You Download" feature, gamers will be able to play "at least the first section" of any game immediately. The rest will be downloaded in the background. All of this makes the digital library a very "practical option," according to Brown, and it's a big plus for Sony. Microsoft's Xbox One offers a similar feature; we'll be able to play any titles that are digitally stored on the cloud.
I'm not quite so impatient that I need to play a game while it's still downloading, but I imagine this feature will be well-received by many.
