Ta med spelen över till vännerna.

PlayStation 4 ägare komma att kunna komma åt och ladda ned deras digitala spel bibliotek from vilken annan Playstation 4 enhet som helst och fortsätta spela nästan direkt, berättade Sony’s R&D senior team leader Neil Brown för publiken under Develop.

”You can visit your friends house you can log into your account and play any game from your digital library, which is good. But how useful is that if it takes half a day to download the game you want to play?” asked Brown. ”With Play As You Download you get much quicker access to at least the first section of the game so you can start playing quicker. So this makes a digital library a practical option in the real world.”

Spela medan du laddar hem spelen så du slipper den horribla disk installationen som många Playstation 3 titlar lidit av.

”A similar system also works on Blu-ray, chunks are automatically copied to the hard drive in the background,” explained Brown. ”This means that after the first few minutes your game can rely on having faster read speeds from the hard drive. Which provides a better experience for players, and this is a completely background process for the player. They don’t have to wait for anything to install before playing the game. The game will launch as soon as the disk has been put in the drive.”
