The addition of a pre-load feature for pre-ordered games on the Sony Entertainment Network with PS4 firmware 1.7 made many assume that the option would debut with Watch_Dogs, but apparently that won’t be the case.
Hmm that's odd. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Watch Dogs named by Sony as the first preloadable game on PS4. Either way I don't see preloading games coming to EU anytime soon :(
I'm not 100% sure they said it officially, but i'm suspecting Ubisoft is afraid of leaks.
I remember them Tweeting it out that you could. Which almost made me pre-order digitally. Fortunately, I went with the disc version instead. And for your comment below. It was the GTAV pre-load but people were extracting the pre-load on to PC and trying to decode the files so Sony removed it. That's how they managed to rip tons of audio and a few videos from the game.
They are worried about leaks? I guarantee we will see live streams of the game in a few days all over live from PlayStation.
if im correct. for a bit didnt they have gta5 pre-load option but then it got taken away cause some idiot decided to dig into the files.
I may remember incorrectly, but I think it wasn't an actual preload, just aq glitch that allowed people to download stuff, which caused them to take down the preorder for a while.
before people start hating on sony. remember this is ubisofts game. so if they dont wont pre-load then watch dogs wont have it. if this is true. wtf happened at ubisoft.
I hope sony gets this feature situated soon (if there is a problem between them and game deveopers on which game should have the feature etc..), hopefully it'll arrive sooner than September for the destiny game.....we might hear something at E3.
Whelp, betta late than neva, eh.
Fur sure eh.
What a joke. It's like nothing just works in this industry anymore. So not only will this big feature end up being a select few games, I have to wait months before it's actually usable. And now instead of playing Watch Dogs when it releases, it won't be until late the next day. It's useless now.
Thats weird you would think console would let you preload a game being Steam lets you preload some games and thats for pc!
Console companies don't like people digging through files. Something pc users do all the time. I do it lol. I wouldn't do it on my ps4 though.
