One of the most requested features for PlayStation owners who use the SEN web store has been the ability to have content purchased via the webstore be automatically downloaded on their PlayStation 3. We now have a date for when this feature is going live thanks to firmware 4.40 patch notes.
System software update 4.40 will allow users to download content purchased from our online store to their PS3. This feature is not available yet and will be activated in May 2013. Keep an eye on eu.playstation.com for a detailed guide explaining how to make the most of this feature.
Starting this May in Europe purchases from the webstore will be automatically downloaded to your PS3 if it is connected to the internet. Along with firmware 4.40 this past week, the PlayStation Store also saw an update which sheds some light on this news.
There is no mention of this on the US firmware page, so I will contact Sony first thing on Monday to see if push downloads will be coming stateside around the same time frame.
