PlayStation 4 Can Be Turned on Remotely

Purchase a game on your phone and your PS4 will wake up to download it.


PlayStation 4 can be turned on while away from the console in order to download new content, Sony confirmed today.

In response to a question on Twitter about purchasing PS4 games from a smartphone, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida responded, "When you buy a PS4 game on smartphone, it will wake your PS4 up to start downloading the game. PS4 goes back to sleep after that."

This sort of remote wake-up functionality was mentioned by Yoshida earlier this year in an interview with Eurogamer. "You can play offline, but you may want to keep it connected," he said at the time. "The system has the low-power mode - I don't know the official term - that the main system is shut down but the subsystem is awake. Downloading or updating or you can wake it up using either the tablet, smartphone or PS Vita."

Given the number of things that can change in the lead up to the launch of a new console, it's good to get confirmation that is indeed something the PS4 is still capable of. This ability to buy and download games remotely could prove particularly useful considering every game on PlayStation 4 will be available digitally.

PS4 is scheduled for release on November 15 in the United States and Canada, and November 29 in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

    This will all happen automatically in the background on XBOX One tho via the cloud. Console on or not, playing a game or not, we will never see updates or have to wait for them to complete to start playing. But a nice little feature for the PS4.

    It didn't say switch on in the article. It said "wake up". So basically your console is "always on".


    Hilarious.

    On a serious note I like shit like this.

    If you have PS+ and opted for automatic download, the PS3 is always on right now.

    Yea, but at a pre-set time. You set it to turn on at a time convenient to you, in my case 4am to 6am. The PS4 would do it automatically once you make a purchase away from the system.
