PlayStation web storefront now supports download queueing

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 26 April 2013 00:27 GMT

As enabled by a recent firmware update, you can now queue downloads directly from the webfront of the PlayStation Store, otherwise known as the Sony Entertainment Network.

The feature has limited application as your console won’t switch on and begin downloading immediately, instead presenting you with a list of queued downloads the next time you switch it on.

There are a couple of ways around this for power users. If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you can set your console to switch on and automatically download any updates or content at a specified time each day – while you’re at work or asleep, for example.

Also, you can use your Vita or Xperia Play’s Remote Play function to access your console remotely, switching it on.

The PlayStation Store got a major overhaul a few months ago, vastly improving some aspects and making others even worse.
