While the act of actually booting up the PlayStation 3's store to purchase software has become increasingly convoluted over the past couple of years, the PlayStation 4 is going to make things really simple. Responding to a request on Twitter, likeable Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida explained that you won’t even need to be in the same room, country, or (presumably) continent as your console to download and install new content.
“When you buy a PS4 game on [a] smartphone, it will wake your PS4 up to start downloading the game,” he explained. “The PS4 goes back to sleep after that.” Your purchase will then be ready for you when you get home, waiting for you to play. This is going to be absolutely amazing on PlayStation Store update days – assuming that Sony can decide upon a set time to actually refresh the digital plaza’s content.
