The Rumor: Infamous: Second Son developer Sucker Punch has said via its official Twitter feed that PS4 will get pre-downloading features for PSN titles in April. Oddly, however, Sony itself is reluctant to confirm the news. "We know that it is the feature you've been asking for and we are considering it accordingly," a rep told Polygon, clearly unwilling to confirm any such plan. “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,” they added.
Our Take: This is an odd one, since it came from the Twitter feed of a first-party Sony developer. That’s a pretty significant authority. But when the platform holder itself refuses to confirm the news, we’re inclined to suspect the Twitter poster may have spoken prematurely of a feature that’s not yet completely locked in and--perhaps--stands a chance of being delayed. Companies don’t like the word ‘delay’, so we assume Sony will say nothing about it until the feature is a sure thing. It’s worth noting though that the Sucker Punch Tweets haven't been deleted.
