Sony is “considering” allowing users to pre-load software on PlayStation 4, according to a company representative.

Last week, a series of Tweets from inFamous: Second Son developer Sucker Punch stated that Sony planned on enabling pre-loading on PlayStation 4 in April. “No preload on PS4 until April and for North America, the PS Store will update at midnight PST…so 3 a.m. EST,” the developer wrote at the time.

“We know that it is the feature you’ve been asking for and we are considering it accordingly,” the representative told Polygon. “We do not have specific details to announce at this point in time, but stay tuned for upcoming announcements about system updates and added features.”

The feature, available on PlayStation 3 and PC, allows players to digitally purchase a game and download it ahead of launch. The game will remain on the hard drive in an unplayable form until the developer unlocks it on launch day—it basically removes the need to wait for digital titles to download on day one.

An upcoming PS4 update will allow users to save screenshots and videos to a USB device, up the recording time for gameplay footage, add a new video editor, and more.
