Sony Promises To Improve PSN For PS4 Following GTA 5 Woes


Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 5 was released last week to insane demand and the PlayStation Network, through which the game was being digitally distributed, had a tough time coping up with it. Multiple reports of download and installation issues come in, the error code 80029563 become the source of great aggravation for many gamers. One can’t fathom how it feels when an 18GB download goes corrupt. When gamers face similar issues with the PlayStation 4 when it is finally released later this year? Sony executive Fergal Gara assures everyone that there are “big innovations in the PS4 to make it more attractive and more easy gamer wise to want to download.”

Gara acknowledges the fact that gamers have faced these issues on the PS3 with PlayStation Network and that Sony could do better in this particular area. One PS4 innovation he talked about is the Play as you Download functionality, through which certain games will be playable even if they’ve not been fully downloaded. Gara admits that downloading games is still a tedious process, and says that Sony has done “a lot of work on pre-delivering files.” “It’s not perfect, It’s not seamless,” he says. The PlayStation 4 will be released in the U.S. and several select markets on November 15th.
