The option to pre-load freshly released game was added to the PlayStation 4 via system update 1.70.
And the first game that will officially support the feature? The hotly anticipated open-world, co-op-oriented shooter, Destiny , as noted at the PlayStation.com support page .
The digital version of the game is now available to pre-order on the PSN, and the game's page says it will be available to play at 2 a.m. PST on September 9. Okay, so it's not 12:01 a.m. but it's pretty darn close. Pre-loading means you don't have to wait for the full game to download on launch day; it has proven to be a popular feature on PC but isn't yet supported on all consoles. The PS4 just got it and as of yet, the Xbox One doesn't.
So, if you enable the Automatic Downloads and Uploads option on your PS4, the system will automatically download any games you've pre-ordered that also support pre-loading. Destiny is the first…you gettin' it?
