    In before the "always online" from trolls.

    It's not required for the console to function, and is optional. Any posts referring or trolling to any sarcastic remark regarding are not welcome.

    Otherwise, enjoy for those that care.

    It shuts it off too.

    It's funny, I was wanting this feature yesterday for when Madden 25 was released on the PSN store to download the 7.8 gigs before I got home from work. But alas, I had to wait.

    Not anymore.

    But, it's only for the PS4 as far as i know. PS3 could really benefit from this.

    I kinda already use this for my PS3 except not with a smartphone app, just browse the web based store on my smart phone.

    Once purchasing something I add it to my download queue. PS+ automatic update happens 1 hour before I finish work and if there is anything in my download queue PS+ downloads it and its waiting for me when I get home. It also turns itself off after updating/downloading as PS+ does.

    The app will be more user friendly no doubt and the download takes place as soon as you purchase but in effect it's already possible now.

    This is pretty rad. I'll be doing this for PSN games and DLC. Still getting as much as I can on a disk though

    Awesome feature indeed. I hope the mobile apps will be useful and intuitive, and not a chore to use.

    That's going to be an excellent feature. The Ps4 is getting better and better everytime something is announced

    Just another perk of this new generation of hardware. All three of these new systems now support this functionality in some manner (WiiU to get similar stuff with an update). It's a good time to be a connected gamer.

    So no one does pretty much the same thing now on PS3?

    AFAIK 360/PS3 both have similar functions. But not the same. The pre-requisite now is that they have to be switched on already. ANd I'm not sure if they auto-off.

    360 will auto off after 6 hours, not triggered by a download completion. PS3 does auto off after patch updates that much I know.

    I can confirm this, I recently subbed to ps+. I have nightly scheduled patches and updates between 4-6am. It turns on, does its thing, turns off. Next day I fire it up, it tells me what it did over night.

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!

    I know you can set auto off time as well (either idle or during games, regardless of what's happening) but not sure if it will auto off without you clicking "turn off system" and/or after a PS+ update.

    Yes I'm aware of this too.

    But I'm trying to see/keep it to non-PS+ functionality since I presume this will be too.

    This will be system wide, I dont think Sony will lock it behind a paywall. That will go against everything they've done (nothing is behind paywall Except online play)...

    Agreed.

    It doesn't really make sense to either, since the ends to the means for Sony is giving people more access so that they are more likely to spend money easier via the app; and the auto download feature just makes that more convenient.

    Paying to be able to what essentially is an easier way to buy/obtain purchases seems counter productive to me.

    This is amazing news indeed, and I don't see why would anyone say anything about the always online thing because like you said it does not need to be online all the time for usage but it's obvious that it needs an internet connection to do stuff like that.

    PS3 does it from standby and autos-off when the download/update is complete. Yes you have to have PS+ but I've been using this feature since Sony added Download Queue to the PS Store. On Store update day I purchase what I want using my phone, add it to my D/L queue and its done when I get home. The store functions better on my phone than what it does on the PS3 so have been using my phone or PC since I can remember.

    No I use safari on my iphone when at work or chrome on the nexus7. I think the current PS App is just for seeing who's online and comparing trophies etc.
