maybe you can just use backup option?

The backup option does not allow you to backup just one game and copy it back when you want it again. You have to backup your entire PS4 hard drive and restore it. Kind of pointless if you want to restore one game.

here is the best solution to all of this.

1. allow external hard drive support.

2. allow background downloads that can be used with a universal app that works on the pc and tablet and mobile smartphone which can wake up your ps4 to allow it to download the game when you are not at home. (maybe they already allow this but i know they don't for external hard drives)

3. allow your ps4 to use alternative servers. why is your console slower to download than the pc is capable of? sony needs to invest in more servers so they don't fluctuate so much depending on load and location.

Probably by 2020 PS Now arrives on PC/Smartphones allowing the user to play PlayStation games on any device. PS Now is PS5

Ummm I will wait for PS Now on PC 😼

I really hope they add network play like the Xbox app on Windows 10.

PS1, PS2, and PS4 games need to be added onto PS Now as well. Is it still technically in beta? Hopefully it won't be like PlayStation Home -- that thing was in beta nearly the entire lifespan of the PS3.
