PS Plus November 2014 update’s game changing feature

By Alan Ng - Oct 16, 2014

While we are obviously no closer to finding out what games will be included in the forthcoming PS Plus November 2014 update game list, we do have some massive news to bring you in the meantime.

Sony has just updated their 2.0 update feature list and one of the new features could be a game-changing addition which we think will have a big impact on PS Plus moving forward.

This feature is called ‘Add to Library’ and Sony has confirmed that it will allow users to add PS Plus games to their library – without the need to download them.

Just to put that into perspective, it effectively means you can now stack up your Instant Game Collection and download all the games at once, combined from say three month’s worth of games – all in one go.

We know for a fact that the reason some of you wouldn’t have downloaded the October PS Plus games, is that you simply didn’t have enough hard drive space and didn’t want to risk it.

Now, with PS4 Add to Library that ultimatum is non-existent and it makes the PS Plus free games deal much more transparent for users. It’s a fantastic move in our opinion and it could end up being the most useful feature of PS4 2.0 ahead of Share Play.

We’re not sure how the technology is going to work on how you can add games to library without downloading them, perhaps it is cloud based. We’ll take Sony’s word for it right now and let you come to terms with how this is going to change PS Plus subscriptions in a big way moving forward.

Do you see the instant benefits of this, freeing up massive amounts of hard drive space for full 50GB games bought digitally instead?

    If you “purchased” the games on the web store, then it doesn’t matter whether you had enough hard drive space for them because it wouldn’t have started a download. Seriously, those of us who had Plus before the PS4 came out and the quality of the games went into the toilet have known about this for years. I don’t even have a PS4 and I have every single PS4 Plus game in my download list.

    How is an ‘add to library’ option a “game-changing addition”? It’s a tiny feature that should have been there from the start like MANY other tiny features. As for “We know for a fact that the reason some of you wouldn’t have downloaded the October PS Plus games, is that you simply didn’t have enough hard drive space and didn’t want to risk it.” You would have to have bought the majority of the games out now digitally, and the PS+ games on the PS4 take up a really small amount of memory. Even if your hard drive was full (HUGE IF BTW) you would only have to delete 1 game off of your system, download the PS+ games, play them for 2-3 minutes to realise they are boring, then delete them and reinstall the game you originally deleted which still has your saves on it.
